This item does not come cheap to buy; actually, it's the game's priciest item so far, at $100. A max of 4 can be carried with you, but that's a pricey endeavor. As the name implies, it detects motion of any kind, even that of the paranormal variety. If these are well placed throughout the house, with no one of your team moving, any activity shown is a good way to determine which room the ghosts haunts.

When any activity is sensed, the green light will activate; it will also send the Truck an audio notification, and an indicator on the map will also show briefly. However, communicate with your team if it was one of them that set off the motion sensor.

To use the motion sensor place is around about waist height on a wall, ideally placed in the center of the room where some spookiness as happened, as wasting $1oo is never a good thing. Motion sensors will only work if placed on a wall!

The activity sensed by the motion sensor is a great way to find out where the ghost resides. It's a crucial bit of evidence gathering that is surely needed! Use this in conjunction with other equipment like the camera, and the Ouija Board, to figure out what horror you are hunting.

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.
