Phasmophobia is currently one of the most popular games on Steam. You can play it in Oculus Rift, Valve Index, GTC Vive, and Windows Mixed Reality (WMR).
However, you can still enjoy it on your PC (personal computer) or laptop. Just like other games, Phasmophobia also has items with unique abilities each.
One of these is the “crucifix.” Of course, the cross symbol won’t be missing in a horror game since it has been the tradition.
However, the crucifix works in a mysterious way. Since Phasmophobia has earned its own fanbase, there are many players who are joining the bandwagon.
Since some of them are newbies, using the crucifix can really confuse them and turn them into ghostbusting noobs. Why? Because this item will not work if you don’t use it properly.
Here’s a quick guide that’ll teach you the best way to use the crucifix.
How to use Phasmophobia’s crucifix
The new horror game will either give you tasks that you should finish alone or in groups. Once you enter the game, you have to investigate paranormal hotspots.
Once you enter these places, you will encounter different types of ghosts. However, these can do so much more than just close doors, knock on wood, or whisper in gibberish.
Most of them can easily get you; that’s why a crucifix is very important. Remember, it won’t work in Phasmophobia if the spirit already entered its hunting phase.
This means that the item can’t protect you from vengeful ghosts if they’re already active and on the prowl.
If you’ve not used the crucifix properly before the ghosts awaken, then you are basically dead meat.
To correctly use Phasmophobia’s crucifix, you need to find a ghost’s room first. After entering the spooky room, you need to place the item on the ground.
This will prevent the spirits from entering their hunting phase. However, you’ll have to use many crucifixes when it comes to larger rooms.
You also need to take note that you need to use the crucifix before the spirits become active or enter their phase of hunting. Remember, the item will not work with every single type of ghost.
This means that you still need to hide when they are on the prowl.
