Phasmophobia Cheat Sheet – Updated! (February 2024)

Your number one cheat sheet for all your Ghost-busting needs!

In Phasmophobia, players must prepare to face the supernatural, but the supernatural comes in the form of many ghosts. To make things worse, these ghosts have different weaknesses and only respond to certain ghost tools. Because of this, some Phasmophobia players may find themselves getting confused fast. This is especially true when you start throwing Tarot cards and Cursed Items into the mix. Luckily we at PGG have a nifty cheat sheet that both new Phasmophiva players and old can use as a player resource.

All Cursed Items and uses - Phasmophobia Cheat Sheet

This section of our cheat sheet will go over the various Cursed Items you can find in Phasmophobia. There are seven Cursed Items that you can find in random locations on maps. Each item will have different effects and uses in-game. We recommend taking some time and reviewing all items so you know how to use them in Phasmophobia. But before using any of the Cursed items listed below, ensure you have enough sanity. In short, all Cursed items will cost a certain amount of sanity, and using them without enough sanity is not recommended for survival.

Overall, all Cursed Possessions/Items offer players the ability to get photo rewards and earn money or get a certain interaction from a ghost at the cost of sanity. The cost of sanity will vary, and all Cursed Items will have risks when using them. In short, using certain items will have a small chance of causing a cursed hunt which will cause the ghost to start hunting players regardless of sanity level. Other items may outright kill you, which is the case with some Tarot cards. Find out more about the cursed item called Tarot cards below:
