Knowing how to use the crucifix in Phasmophobia can make a huge difference when investigating the haunted house at the center of the game's conceit. Smart ghost hunters — if such a thing exists — will need to use every tool in their arsenal, and this one can be confusing to wield correctly. Here's how to add the crucifix to your tool belt and subdue your spectral cohabitants.

How to Use the Crucifix in Phasmophobia, Explained

The most common mistake players make when using the crucifix in Phasmophobia is to wield it in the face of a raging ghost. If the ghost has already entered its hunting phase, the crucifix won't have any effect.

Instead, players need to place the crucifix on the ground in the same room as a dormant ghost. Provided the ghost walks within three meters of the crucifix, they'll stay dormant. In larger rooms, you may need to place more than crucifix to ensure the entire area is covered. If done correctly, you won't have to worry about the ghost in that room going wild and entering murder mode.
