In Phasmophobia, you are tasked with investigating paranormal activity at haunted locations. One of the most difficult parts of investigating these locations (apart from the impending doom) is sorting through the evidence to determine what kind of ghost is haunting it. With this guide, we provide a full, easy-to-understand view of what Ghost type you should select based on the evidence you find.
There is a simple trick to understanding the table below: In the header, it says one piece of evidence or another. That's because these types of evidence would replace the other one when determining between the two possibilities. For example, if you find Freezing Temperatures and Fingerprints, the last piece of evidence will tell you if you're looking at a Hantu or a Jinn depending on if you find a Ghost Orb or EMF Level 5.
|Ghost Type||Fingerprints||EMF Level 5|
