Here are some of the Most Important & Best Tools for you in Phasmophobia.

You got to do whatever it takes to collect strong evidence of a ghost’s presence. This is how you are going to make a lot of money in Phasmophobia. Besides your courage and environmental skills, you have some tools or equipment that will help you throughout the game. Each one of these items is important, but still, you can’t use everything. Hence, check out this guide to know some of the best tools that you should use in Phasmophobia.

Best & Most Important Items to Use in Phasmophobia

Here are some of the most useful tools that you can use while Ghost Hunting:

EMF Reader Tool in Phasmophobia

Thermometer & EMF Reader

Even though both of these tools are different, they come in handy when used together. When a ghost is lurking around you, the temperature drops drastically. Hence, in such instances, you can use a Thermometer to keep a check on the temperature. If there is a sudden drop in temperature, you can use an EMF Reader to confirm a ghost’s presence. You will know a ghost is nearby when the EMF Reader beeps with different colors.

D.O.T.S Projector

D.O.T.S Projector Phasmophobia Item

This tool in Phasmophobia requires you to be calm and patient. Although, it will guarantee you thick proof of the presence of a ghost. All you need to do is attach the Projector to a surface nearby. Further, keep observing the green-colored dotted lights around you. If there is a ghost around you, it will run over those lights.

Spirit Box – Best & Most Important Phasmophobia Tool

Spirit Box Best Item Phasmophobia

Spirit Box is one of those items that you should never drop in Phasmophobia. It allows you to ask certain questions to a ghost. However, it won’t answer you every time, but here are a few most answered questions by a ghost:

  • Are you here?
  • How old are you?
  • Are you close?

Note – Ensure that the lights are switched off before using a Spirit Box. For your reference, check out this video from Modernbaddog featuring some spine chilling Spirit Box replies.

UV Lights and Flashlights

UV Lights & Flashlights

There is no way you will be dismissing a Flashlight from your inventory. Most of the time you will be ghost-hunting with lights turned off. That being said, a Flashlight is what you need to not lose your way in the dark. Additionally, it flickers when a ghost is nearby so it’s a win-win Phasmophobia tool for you. On the other hand, UV Lights are necessary to spot handprints of Ghosts on walls, windows, or doors.

Photo Camera

Being a Ghost Investigator, your main is to collect the strongest evidence. Who can deny the presence of a ghost if you have a photo of it? This is where a Photo Camera will play its role in getting you some candids.

Head Mounted Camera

Most of the time, you will be working as a team while looking for a ghost. A Head-Mounted Camera is one of the best Phasmophobia Tools that will help to develop strong communication between you and your teammates. One of the teammates can wait outside in the Van and spectate through the Head Mounted Camera and inform things that your eyes may have missed.

Parabolic Microphone

Parabolic Microphone

A Parabolic Microphone or simply, Paramic can help you detect strange noises within a range of 30 meters. The noises include sounds like growls, voices, and footsteps. Note – It is the best tool to identify a Myling in Phasmophobia.

Ghost Writing Book

There is a myth that Ghost Writing Books are completely useless. Well, I would suggest not believing in such bluffs until you use them yourself. Simply, keep this item in the most active (most paranormal) room and wait for a while. Sometimes it can take a little longer for a ghost to interact with it. However, it will strongly boost your investigation, if you get the traces of a Ghost Writing Book.


Melted Crucifix

You may have seen in movies how ghosts are being hunted down with the help of a Crucifix. While hunting an aggressive ghost, the best item that will help you protect yourself is a Crucifix in Phasmophobia. You will know you have lost your protection when the Crucifix has completely melted.

Sanity Pills

Having a lower Sanity Level will make you vulnerable and cause the ghosts to act more violently against you. However, consuming a Sanity Pill will somewhat restore it making you good to go again.
