How to Hide from Ghosts in Phasmophobia

A guide on how to hide in Phasmophobia.

The month of the haunt is upon us, more and more people are flocking to playing horror games now more than ever. One such game called Phasmophobia has exploded in popularity, as you are tasked to cleanse ghosts with up to 4 friends, from haunted places, using an array of gadgets and equipment, such as Ouija Boards and Crucifixes! Nobody likes being hunted by ghosts, not even those equipped to handle it like Paranormal Investigators! When panic mode inevitably happens, hiding is your best choice, but how can you hide from ghosts in Phasmophobia?

Hiding spots

Ghosts depending on the type, can be exceedingly aggressive, even more so in the hunting phase where they will happily kill you. During the hunting phase, the best defense is the best offense, as if you can't survive this phase well, a corpse can't help his friends, can it? Knowing the most reliable places to hide will save your life!

The most optimum way to know when it's time to nope out and hide is when your flashlights or the house lights start to flicker. Find anywhere that you can hide, a wardrobe, a closet, and stay perfectly quiet, but do not, and we say, do not try and leave the house, as it's locked! Doing that will limit your time to hide, which will end up with the ghost finding you. Another good place to hide is in the bathroom, but turn off any light sources such as your flashlights, as you don't want a homing beacon to your location.

An amazing tip for when you are setting up your equipment is to take mental note of your surroundings, where places to hide are located. Knowing is half the battle; trying to find somewhere to hide amidst panic is not a good solution. Also, communicate with your team, as everyone running for the same location, well will lead to a mad dash to find somewhere else, and time is not on your side!

Hey, my name is Mark, and I'm a video game enthusiast! My earliest memory was playing Worms on the Amiga against my Godmother, yes the Amiga, massive box type thing, needed eighty-five thousand floppy disks to play one game, maybe a slight exaggeration. Ah, those were the days! I love RPG’s, and The Legend of Zelda series. Dogs are pretty awesome.
