However, the above task list is just for a Perfect Investigation bonus. If you want to complete a truly perfect game, which can reward you with $2,500 or more on higher difficulties, you’ll need to do more.

How to get a perfect game in Phasmophobia

For a perfect Phasmophobia run and obtain the maximum number of rewards possible, you need to do the following:

  1. Complete all the objectives.
  2. Identify the ghost.
  3. Pick up the bone.
  4. Snap a three-star photo of: Bone, Ghost, Burned Crucifix (up to 4x), and Dirty Water (up to 4x).

The journal needs to be filled up with ten unique photos. So, if you can get more unique photos of Dirty Waters, then you don’t have to snap four Burned Crucifixes. For example, Sunny Meadows has a ton of sinks in it. By the way, value ratings don’t matter if you’re looking for maximum payout—just the stars!
