Phasmophobia difficulty differences are sure to give players a fright as they advance through the game.

Kinetic Games has given players plenty of ways to experience a sense of progression through the game. From finding each type of spirit and collecting evidence to growing their prowess as a professional paranormal team, players will find themselves challenged at every turn.

Below, we've outlined exactly what can be expected through each difficulty.

Phasmophobia Difficulty Differences

There are three existing difficulties in Phasmophobia. Each is unlocked according to a certain earned level—advanced by completing tasks and surviving the haunting on each map.

Amateur is the first difficulty players can find. Unsurprisingly, this can also be called the beginner rank. The most notable thing about Amateur difficulty jobs is the start delay in which ghosts will leave players to their own devices within the first five minutes. This is meant to give time to collect evidence and get used to the game before the hunting phase begins.

Intermediate is the next difficulty and becomes available at level five. Now, players only have two minutes to prepare before the ghost launches into its hunting phase. Additionally, ghosts will now hunt the player more fervently.

Professional is the last difficulty and is unlocked at level 15. In this tier, there is no time to prepare. The ghost will become active immediately and mercilessly hunt players until the game is over. Players should prepare for a drastic drop in sanity from the moment they leave their van.
