Phasmophobia Tips

In the truck, you will find a lot of things that will help you decipher the evidence for the ghosts and watch your characters stats. The things you need to focus on your truck at the starting of the game are the objective from the whiteboard. Besides that, you will see a few black screens where the team sanity percent is there with current location emf which is a ghost activity tracker, and the map of the house in which the ghost is.

There is also a computer which will be connected to all the cameras already present or any camera you place in the house. You can scroll through the camera by interacting with the mouse and change the night vision mode from the keyboard.

To find the evidence of ghosts in phasmophobia you can place the camera in the room where you think the ghost might be or just by the entrance of the door. Drop some salt at the entrance of the door and glow some smudge sticks or glow sticks and drop them near the camera. So basically you are piling up the tools near the entrance so that you get a lot of evidence when the ghost tries to leave the room.

The crucifix works only when down before the hunting phase. Banshee’s weakness is the crucifix, but some ghosts have no effect of it. If the light turns on and off automatically, you might want to flash your UV torchlight on the switch to find the fingerprints of the ghosts.

One person should always remain at the truck to monitor the ghost activity, track time, and your teammate’s health. Picking up bones or clicking pictures of it for evidence will grant you some extra money that can be used to buy items.

Some More Extra Tips

When the 5 minutes are going to be over, make sure you have all the items to scare the ghost such as a crucifix, salt, smudge stick. Throw the crucifix on the ghost to scare it off. The lights will start to flicker when the ghosts will go into hunting mode. If the lights go out before 5 minutes and are not turning on, you can try to visit the power source and can find a red light. Interact with it to make it green which will restore the power and you can turn on lights again.

The crucifix can be used only two times so use it wisely and you might carry 2 of them while playing in a team. Smudge sticks cannot be used any longer to take the ghost out of it’s hunting phase. It will just give the player who is holding it some extra time to hide. Job objectives will be given to you based on the highest player level.

Holding a smudge stick will not stop the ghost from hunting rather it will delay the hunt and give you some extra time to hide. Sometimes when lights flicker, it happens because of a low sanity level and can be only seen by you and not by your teammates.
