Does sanity drop faster in Point Hope in Phasmophobia?

The short answer is no, sanity does not drop faster on Point Hope compared to other smaller-sized maps. A YouTuber tested this by comparing Point Hope to Tanglewood Drive by hiding for a few minutes and checking sanity to find out that both maps dropped the same amount of sanity.

However, Point Hope can indeed feel like it drains your sanity faster because of how big it is compared to other small-sized maps. So when you are going through rooms and up and down, it takes more time to do that, all of which adds up to what feels like your sanity dropping much faster.

Tips to Manage Sanity on Point Hope in Phasmophobia

That said, there are some things that you can do to prevent your sanity from lowering faster.

  • Keep Lights On: Prioritize finding and turning on the breaker, and keep lights on in key areas like stairwells and high-traffic zones to slow down the sanity drain.
  • Use T3 Firelights: Place T3 Firelights in dark areas you frequently visit to create safe zones so your sanity drain is minimized.
  • T3 Sanity Meds: Always carry T3 Sanity Meds and use them to keep your sanity above 50%, preventing ghost hunts and keeping you safe.
  • Identify Ghosts: Identify the ghost type early using evidence, as some ghosts like the Yokai or Demon can drain sanity faster, and adjust your strategy accordingly.
  • Light Paths: Create light paths with flashlights or glowsticks to mark safe routes, helping you navigate back to the exit quickly and reducing time spent in darkness.
  • Nightvision Goggles: Use Nightvision goggles to maintain visibility in the dark without draining your sanity as fast, freeing up your hands for other equipment.
