  • Video Camera  Set up cameras in the room to observe from the truck computer.

  • Crucifix – Prevents certain ghosts from entering into the hunting mode. It has a radius of 4m so it won’t fully cover a large room.
  • Spirit Box – Use to interact with certain types of ghosts.
  • Salt – It is used to track the movement of ghosts. Place it on the ground and you can footmark and track the ghosts. Best against a Wraith who cannot be tracked via footprints. (Update- Wraith doesn’t leave footprints anymore but has still its one of its weaknesses).

    I’d suggest proofreading your articles before posting them – easy spelling and grammar mistakes, double posts (motion & sound sensor posted twice in the same list) among other things.

    Aside from that:
    You switched video and photo camera around. The photo cam can’t view the house cameras, it takes pictures.

    As for the other items:

    Sound sensor detects sounds the ghost might make. The truck has a screen which roughly indicates in which general area it is. Useless if the ghost doesnt move objects

    Parabolic mic is a mobile version of the sound sensor, works the same way.

    Motion sensor is a wall-mounted device that will detect anything moving in front of it, and it will show up on the map as a long bar. best to set it up in a hallway in front of the ghost’s room.

    Infrared sensor: Will light up the area the moment a ghost is detected in front of it

    Head mounted camera: Same as the other video cams, but mobile

    Tripod: Allows for better placement of the video camera

    Photo camera (seeing as you messed that one up with the video camera): Can take pictures of ghosts, the bloody sink, handprints and other stuff for evidence. Can also be used to scare away a Phantom during its hunt phase

      You will always have it with you and can use every round until you die. Once you die your items will be lost but you get some insurance money.

      You throw it at the ghost or in front of the ghost. You can only use the crucifix two times. The best way to use it is to place it before the ghost starts the hunt.
