SCP-372, also known as the "Peripheral Jumper", is an SCP object that can be encountered in SCP - Containment Breach.
SCP-372 is a reptilian insectoid creature of unknown genus, approximately 2 meters long from head to tail and weighing approximately 45 kilograms. It has a long, thin body with eight pairs of narrow limbs.
Analysis has shown that its muscle fibers are made of a hard rubbery solid , allowing for extremely fast and precise movements. Every part of the body is abnormally flexible, and the limbs are coated with small fibers that cling to almost any solid surface.
In place of eyes or ears, it has a yellow sensory organ which is capable not only of echolocation, but also of detecting energy transfers, such as the electrical impulses in the brains of nearby beings. SCP-372 has learned to time its movements to those pulses, predicting the movements of any being around it. It uses this technique to hide, either by hiding behind the head of a person looking for it, or by hiding in their scotomas (blind spots) and saccades (clipping during eye movement).
In-gameEditUpon entering SCP-372's containment chamber, a rustling sound is heard, meaning that SCP-372 has started to stalk the player. By turning very quickly or blinking rapidly, the player, on occasion, can see SCP-372 out of the corner of their view. SCP-372 sometimes makes noises while stalking the player throughout the game.
SCP-372 will follow the player until they die.
- SCP-372 was implemented in order to replace SCP-513-1.
- SCP-372's placeholder model is a contorted version of SCP-106's old model and its face is a green recolor of SCP-513-1.
- By turning on wireframe in the console and holding down the blink button, SCP-372 can be seen flying across the view.
- The author of SCP-372, known as Sylocat, once commented about the sensory organ that was redacted from the original article (the comment can be seen here). The "yellow orb" that SCP-372 possesses is supposed to pick on auditory and visual information in a way similar to echolocation.
