How To Use Crucifix In Phasmophobia

A Crucifix will prevent a ghost from hunting you, but it won't stop a hunt in progress. The Crucifix won't just immediately start working once you have it in your inventory, instead, you'll need to take a few extra steps to properly use the Crucifix in Phasmophobia.

First, you'll need to purchase a Crucifix from the store and add it to your loadout before you decide on a map and head out in your van. Once you get to the map itself, look around and identify the ghost room, which is where the ghost will reside and where you'll likely see the most ghost activity.

Once you've located the ghost room, you just need to toss the Crucifix on the ground by pressing the 'F' button. It will work within a three-meter radius, meaning that if you're within that radius, the ghost won't start hunting you. You can use a Crucifix twice before it is unable to be used again.
