How To Use A Crucifix In Phasmophobia

Waving the Crucifix in front of the ghost but it is not working? What do you do with it? Here's how to use the Crucifix in Phasmophobia.

Fans of the horror genre are currently playing the 4 player online co-op game Phasmophobia. It’s all about the fear of ghosts and this game is absolutely terrifying. You have to investigate the presence of ghosts and there are more than 10 types of ghosts you will encounter. Basically it is all about teamwork where you can play with your ‘VR’ and ‘non VR’ teammates. There’s one question that is one everyone’s minds though – How does the Crucifix work in Phasmophobia? Is it just a prop or is there a way to use it? Here’s the answer to that.

How to use the Crucifix in Phasmophobia?


There are various items and tools you can bring along on your ghost-hunting adventure – the Crucifix is one of them. How to use it to your advantage in the game is not clearly indicated. As you may already know, it can protect you from evil spirits in the game but how does it work and how to use it?

Basically what you need to do is locate the room of the ghost and put the crucifix inside. Note that this must be done before the ghost begins its hunting phase. If you do it before the phase, the ghosts hunting phases will be stopped (most of them, as per the developers of this game on Steam).

This means that the ghosts won’t attack players if you place it at the right time. If you are too late, this item will not help you. If you frantically point it at a ghost or shake it in its face, there will be no effect. During that crucial time, the best thing to do is hide from it.

So, that’s what you need to know about the Phasmophobia crucifix. Use it at the right time and you will be protected otherwise hiding is the only option you’ve got.
