The Spirit Box is a crucial piece of equipment in Phasmophobia. If you plan on deciphering what type of ghost you’re dealing with, you’re going to need to know how to use it properly. Most players seem to wander around aimlessly, asking amusing questions with no real purpose. While that might work on occasion, you’ll have a better time following this quick guide on how to use the Spirit Box and the different questions you can ask the ghost in Phasmophobia.
How to Use the Spirit Box in Phasmophobia
Before you start asking questions, you should know how to use the Spirit Box. First things first, you must be in the house, campsite, asylum, etc., when using the Spirit Box. You must also be within 3-5 meters of the ghost, depending on the tier of the Spirit Box. The lights in the room should be off, but most other light sources don’t matter, including lights in adjacent rooms or the hall outside the room.
Some ghosts only respond when the person using the Spirit Box is alone, which means the person asking questions should be by themselves to maximize the chances of an interaction. Do note that lights flickering, a hunt, or anything unrelated to the Spirit Box does not count as evidence. The ghost must interact directly with the Spirit Box in order for it to count as evidence.
That’s just about everything you need to know. Shut the lights off, be alone, and look for any interaction with the Spirit Box itself rather than any sort of paranormal activity. Now that you know the basics, let’s look at what questions you can ask the ghost using the Spirit Box in Phas.
