Phasmophobia's Weekly Challenges tend to vary in difficulty, with some being moderately hard while others will be extremely challenging for ghost hunters to complete. The 'Apocalypse Draws Near' challenge is certainly the latter; it's one of the toughest challenges in Phasmophobia, but it's very possible to complete with the right strategies, tools, and approach.
Here's how to complete The Apocalypse Draws Near challenge in Phasmophobia.
What Is The Apocalypse Draws Near Challenge
The Apocalypse Draws Near is "the hardest possible challenge but with normal investigator speed." It's a spin on the Apocalypse challenge.
The Apocalypse Challenge tasks players with completing all 4 objectives on Sunny Meadows Mental Institution alone and obtaining a ghost photo with any number of stars. There are three Apocalypse difficulties: 1 (6x), 2 (10x), and 3 (15x). The Apocalypse Draws Near is based on Apocalypse level 3, the hardest of them all.
Unlike the Apocalypse Challenge, however, The Apocalypse Draws Near allows players to walk at normal speed and sprint.
How To Beat The 'Apocalypse Draws Near' Challenge With Ease
Beating the Apocalypse Draws Near Challenge requires players to use their skills to identify the ghost type and complete the other objectives. Thankfully, you'll have Tier 3 tools on your side, so this should make it a lot easier. Here are some tips for identifying the ghost, getting a photo, and completing all of your objectives without breaking a sweat.
Find The Ghost Quickly
Finding the ghost's location quickly is key to winning the Apocalypse Draws Near challenge in Phasmophobia. Once you've pinned down the ghost room, you can try to gain evidence, communicate with the ghost, and perhaps even witness an event.
To find the ghost room, you can check for low temperatures, activity (such as movements or sounds), and other signs of the ghost, like responses to your equipment.
Use Smudge Sticks
You'll likely be losing Sanity as you search for the ghost and endeavor to complete all your objectives, so you'll definitely want to bring along some Smudge Sticks to keep you safe. They'll prevent the ghost from hunting you, so they're an invaluable item; however, you can only bring so many of them, so use them wisely when your Sanity drops or you're fearing a hunt due to a spike in ghost activity.
Be Prepared To Take A Photo
Taking a photo is one key objective you'll need to complete for this challenge. As such, you'll want to have a Photo Camera on hand and be prepared to take a photo whenever an event occurs. It doesn't matter how quality the photo is as long as you're able to take one - one-to-three-star photos all work.
Beware Of The Mimic
The Mimic can mirror the behavior of many different ghosts in Phasmophobia and may cause you some trouble if you aren't careful. One way to identify a Mimic is that their behavior changes every minute or so, while most ghost types are more consistent; you can pay attention to drastic changes in behavior and activity if you aren't sure.
The Apocalypse Draws Near is one of the hardest challenges in Phasmophobia, and it may take some time to complete, even for experienced ghost hunters. However, using these tips and strategies, you should be able to
