What To Do When Dead In Phasmophobia

In Phasmophobia, you're on the hunt for a Ghost as you attempt to learn more about them and identify their name and species. But what happens when you die in Phasmophobia and end up becoming one of the Ghosts you've been trying to seek out? In this guide, we'll talk about what happens when you die in Phasmophobia, and what to do after you die.

April 17 2023 - Wondering what to do when you're dead in Phasmophobia? We've updated this article with the newest tips and info.

What Happens When You Die In Phasmophobia?

Once you die in Phasmophobia, you are effectively temporarily out of the Ghost hunt. You'll become invisible to other players, you'll drop all of your items - so other players can pick them up - and you won't be able to interact with other players via in-game voice chat anymore.

Just because you're dead in Phasmophobia doesn't mean you have to stop participating in the game. In fact, there are several things you can still do to interact with other players and with Ghosts.

Be A Ghost Yourself

If you want to have some fun, you can throw things around and mess with your teammates after you're dead, creating a little bit of ghostly activity yourself. While this doesn't have any gameplay benefits - and might even hinder your team a bit - it's a fun way to spend your time after you've passed on!

Complete The Journal

As a dead player, you'll have a lot of time to figure out who the Ghost might be alongside the other players. Even if you're dead, you can fill out your journal and try to determine the identity of the Ghost. If you're right, you still get rewards, even though you died during the match!

Communicate Via External Methods

As a ghost, you're able to see some evidence around the map, though not all of it is visible to you. If you happen to spot some helpful evidence, you can use Discord, a phone call, or another method to let your friends know what you've found even after you're dead in the game.

In this guide, we've gone over everything you need to know about what you should do when you're dead in Phasmophobia. There aren't a lot of things players can do after they've passed on, but it definitely isn't the end of the game!
