Guide for Phasmophobia – | Basic Guide

This guide will teach you the basics of the game.

 

Introduction

This guide will teach you the basics of the game. I am also learning the game by playing it with my friends while writing this guide.
This guide will get updated very often (at least for now).

Phasmophobia can be very confusing at the beginning because the official tutorial doesn’t really explain the details. I’ll try to explain everything as clear as possible.

Microphone
Before playing the game, you should “Test” your microphone and fix it if it’s not working properly.

It would help if you kept your microphone unmuted all the time.
(Press ‘Space’ to open the menu.)

You can use it by clicking on it or by pressing ‘Space.’

Press “Play” and click “Create Public” or “Create Private” to start a lobby.
There should be an invite code next to the title (“Server Lobby”). You can share that code with the people you want to join.
To join a private lobby with a code, click “Join Private Game” and enter the code that someone gave you.
You can play the game with 3 other people. (Min: 1 / Max: 4)

Gameplay

 

Starting

The first thing you should do when the game starts is to look at the whiteboard in the van.
You can find your objectives and some information about the ghost on the whiteboard.

The name of the ghost can be found on the whiteboard. Saying its name will anger it.
Please do not do it unless you want to anger the ghost.

The highlighted sentences/words are the important parts.
“respond to everyone” / “only respond to people who are alone” is important if you are going to use the ‘Spirit Box’ and you have to use it most of the time. If the board says “alone,” then the person who will use it should be alone in the room, but if it says “everyone,” then they don’t have to be alone in the room.
You can find more information about the objectives below.

When the game starts, take the items you want from the van.
You have 3 slots, which means you can take only 3 items (you can drop them).

Early-Game Items

  1. (Strong) Flashlight
  2. Thermometer
  3. EMF Reader
  4. Parabolic Microphone

Open the door of the van when you (and your teammates) are ready.
Opening the door will make the Safe Time begin. Use this time wisely, locate the haunted room, put your items in/near it, and start gathering evidence.
Ghosts can not kill you during Safe Time.
Safe Time Duration

Amateur5 Minutes
Intermediate2 Minutes
ProfessionalNo Safe Time

You also have to get the key to it from the van (the key doesn’t count as an item).
Go inside the building and start searching for the haunted room (the room of the Ghost).
You can do several things to figure out which room is the haunted room.
The first thing you should try is entering every room while holding a ‘Thermometer.’ If the temperature is below 13C/??F, then the room you are currently in is probably the haunted room.
If the ‘Thermometer’ didn’t help, you can try using an ‘EMF Reader’ and go into every room while holding it. If it goes up to 2 or more, then the room you are currently in is probably the haunted room. You can also find the haunted room by listening to sounds, seeing open doors or lights.
If you are on a big map, then you probably should use a ‘Parabolic Microphone’ since it’s beneficial in medium or large maps like “Brownstone High school” and “Asylum.”

Hunts

The ghost can start hunts if Safe Time has ended.
The ghosts can only kill you during hunts.
Saying the name of the ghost will anger it, and it will probably start a hunt.
When a hunt begins, flashlights will start turning on and off over and over.
If a hunt begins, you should run away or hide somewhere.
You can hide in rooms or lockers though some Ghosts (for example, Wraiths) can see through lockers and doors. They can also go through walls, so running away from them is a better idea.
When you are hiding, you should keep your flashlight off, and you should keep quiet.
You can’t use the B key (Global Push To Talk) during hunts.
