How to tell if players are safe after a hunt in Phasmophobia.

The last thing players in Phasmophobia want after a hunt is to get caught in a dangerous situation.

The grace period is entirely dependent on the difficulty level the player has set for their game. For those who get a grace period, this is a valuable opportunity for players to set traps before the ghost is active again. While players may hear or see a ghost, it cannot attack the player during this time. Unless it is provoked.

Amateur Difficulty Grace Period - Five minutes

Intermediate Difficulty Grace Period - Two minutes and 30 seconds

Professional Difficulty Grace Period - None

Nightmare Difficulty Grace Period - None

Certain activities will provoke ghosts and end the grace period entirely. To provoke ghosts, players can either use the Ouija Board or taunt the specific ghost. Remember that the grace period can be ended as early as 30 seconds in, so be careful to not do this too early.
