While playing Phasmophobia, you'll need to make your way around the game's many maps to find the ghosts that hide within - but what do you do if you find a key, and how do you use it to unlock a door? Keys are necessary to progress in Phasmophobia, so you'll need to know how to use them to not only start ghost hunting but also fight back against any ghosts that might try to intimidate you by turning on loud car alarms.

Types Of Keys In Phasmophobia

There are two different types of keys in Phasmophobia. One key is called the Main Door Key. This key is the most important key in the game and lets you access the house within a map. You usually can't start ghost-hunting without picking up the Main Door Key from your starting van. 

The other type of key is called the Car Key. The Car Key can be used to silence cars if a ghost begins setting off their car alarms. Car Keys are found on the following maps:

  • Edgefield Street House
  • Tanglewood Street House
  • Willow Street House
  • Ridgeview Road House

If you need to find a Car Key to silence a car that a pesky ghost turned on, you'll need to look on nightstands, small tables, and other surfaces throughout the house. Look carefully, as keys are quite a small item compared to others in Phasmophobia.

How To Use Keys In Phasmophobia

Keys are one of the easiest items to use in Phasmophobia. As for the Main Door Key, all you'll need to do is approach the front door with the key in hand and left-click; the door will open right up for you.

The Car Key, on the other hand, requires you to take a few extra steps. First, you'll need to find the car that the ghost set off and approach it. You will then need to left-click the car with the Car Key in your hand. If the ghost turns the car horn back on again, just follow those steps again.
