Depending on their type, the ghosts in Phasmophobia move at varying speeds. I learned this the hard way when I tried to run away from one (unsuccessfully). There are over 20 ghosts in Phasmophobia, but most have set speeds. However, the ones that can increase their speed will end you if you're not careful. Here are all the ghost movement speeds in Phasmophobia.
All Ghost Speeds in Phasmophobia
Speed is critical in Phasmophobia; luckily, you can identify the speed of every ghost in the game. Knowing how fast the ghosts can move in Phasmophobia is vital when trying to identify the ghost and, more importantly, survive.
Most ghosts will have a standard speed of 1.7 m/s and speed up when they see players while hunting. A ghost's speed is often tied to its ability and can be controlled in some cases. Below, you'll find the exact speed of every ghost in Phasmophobia.
|Ghost Name||Speed/ Speed Ranges|
|Deogen||0.4 m/s - 3.0 m/s|
|Hantu||1.44 m/s - 2.7 m/s|
|Jinn||1.7 m/s - 2.5 m/s|
|Moroi||1.5 m/s - 3.71 m/s|
|Raiju||1.7 m/s - 2.5 m/s|
|Revenant||1.0 m/s - 3.0 m/s|
|The Mimic||1.7 m/s|
|The Twins||1.53 m/s - 1.87 m/s|
|Thaye||1.0 m/s - 2.75 m/s|
Fast Ghosts in Phasmophobia
While these ghosts have average speed stats, their movement skyrockets under certain conditions. Phasmophobia will throw multiple clues at you if you want to identify fast ghosts.
The Jinn typically moves at 1.7 m/s. However, if the fuse box is on, you're in its line of sight, and it's 3 meters away from you, its speed increases to 2.5 m/s.
The Raiju ghost in Phasmophobia increases its speed to 2.5 m/s whenever it goes near a player's active equipment.
Slow Ghosts in Phasmophobia
These ghosts have less-than-average movement speeds but can become faster depending on the circumstances. So, when you wish to identify slow ghosts, Phasmophobia will throw several movement-related hints.
The Revenant keeps its slow speed, but it increases to 3.0 m/s immediately when you have been sensed via equipment, voice, or line of sight. However, it gradually slows to 1.0 m/s when the ghost reaches your location.
The Hantu is unique; it has a slow speed at first, but moves faster in colder temperatures! You can stall it by maintaining a direct line of sight.
The Twins don't directly change their speed, instead changing the form that they take. In their physical form, they have a slow speed of 1.53 m/s, but in ranged form, they move at 1.87 m/s.
Moroi is a unique ghost that increases its speed based on your sanity level. When in direct line of sight, it can reach a formidable 3.71 m/s.
Deogen can move anywhere between 0.4 m/s to 3.0 m/s, depending on how far it is from you. For example, if Deogen is far from you, it moves at 3.0 m/s, but as it gets closer, it slows down to 0.4 m/s.
Thaye's speed depends on its age. It can go up to 2.75 m/s when younger but will slow down to 1.0 m/s as it ages.
How to slow down Ghosts in Phasmophobia
Only a few ghosts can be slowed down effectively: the Hantu, Jinn, Raiju, Revenant, Moroi, and Thaye. You can also use Monkey Paw wishes to interfere with a ghost's movement speed. Be careful, though, as those wishes in Phasmophobia come with a terrible price!
Slowing down the Hantu in Phasmophobia
Because the Hantu gets faster in colder temperatures, turning on the generator is the most effective way of controlling its speed. The Hantu will attempt to turn off the generator to speed itself up and never turn it on.
Slowing down the Jinn in Phasmophobia
The Jinn requires that players are far away from them to boost their speed, and cannot speed up at all if the generator is off.
Slowing down the Raiju in Phasmophobia
Because the Raiju only moves faster around electronics, you can turn them all off, forcing it to move at average speed.
Slowing down the Revenant in Phasmophobia
The Revenant's speed is entirely dependent on spotting the player. It is the second slowest ghost next to the Deogen, so using a Smudge Stick to guarantee it finds a hiding spot will keep it as slow as possible.
Slowing down the Moroi in Phasmophobia
The Moroi's speed depends entirely on Sanity, making Sanity Pills necessary to slow them down. Staying where there is light on will also maintain the player's Sanity.
Slowing down the Thaye in Phasmophobia
Because the Thaye's speed decreases over time, one of the best strategies to slow it down is to simply stay within the Ghost Room with Crucifixes and Smudge Sticks until it ages.
