Phasmophobia: All ghost types and evidence needed to identify them

Your one-stop guide to identifying all the Phasmophobia ghost types and the evidence you will need.
Phasmophobia: All ghost types and evidence needed to identify them

Phasmophobia, the co-op ghost-hunting experience from Kinetic Games, has taken the world by storm, with big Twitch streamers jumping on the ever-so-frightening bandwagon. If you have finally built up the nerve to try out the horror title, and plan on hunting some ghosts, you probably need to know all the Phasmophobia ghost types and the evidence you will need to identify them. Thankfully, you don't have to call the Ghostbusters, we've got you covered.

All Phasmophobia ghost types & evidence required

To successfully finish a session of Phasmophobia, you will need to identify the ghost via gathering evidence. 

Each of the 12 Phasmophobia ghost types has different combinations of evidence pointing the players in the right direction. They also have some characteristics in case you are unable to find all the evidence required.

Below, you can view all the Phasmophobia ghost types, as well as the evidence you need, and their characteristics.

Spotting them for the first time is sure to give you a fright, which is a big part of the game, so we won't show you exactly what they look like. 

 

Banshee 

The banshee ghost type in Phasmophobia will only target one person at a time and fears the Crucifix item.

Evidence:

  • Freezing Temperatures
  • EMF Level 5
  • Fingerprints

Spirit

You can use Smudge Sticks to stop it from attacking.

Evidence:

  • Ghost Writing
  • Spirit Box
  • Fingerprints

Phantom

Taking a picture will make the Phantom disappear, while player Sanity will drop as you are looking for it. 

Evidence:

  • Freezing Temperatures
  • EMF Level 5
  • Ghost Orb

Wraith

Does not leave any footsteps and has a bad reaction to Salt.

Evidence:

  • Freezing Temperatures
  • Spirit Box
  • Fingerprints

Poltergeist

The poltergeist ghost type of Phasmophobia throws a tonne of objects around, so an empty room makes in rather harmless.

Evidence:

  • Spirit Box
  • Ghost Orb
  • Fingerprints

Jinn

The further you are away from this ghost type of Phasmophobia, the faster it travels. You can turn off power sources to neutralize it. Goes well with tonic (yes, the last one was a joke).

Evidence:

  • EMF Level 5
  • Spirit Box
  • Ghost Orb

Revenant

The Revenant travels quickly when hunting someone, so hiding from it causes this ghost type to move very slowly.

Evidence:

  • EMF Level 5
  • Ghost Writing
  • Fingerprints

Mare

Doesn't like it when the lights go on, so it won't attack as much. In the dark, however, it has an increased chance of attacking.

Evidence:

  • Freezing Temperatures
  • Spirit Box
  • Ghost Orb

Demon

The most aggressive of the Phasmophobia ghost types. If you ask the Demon successful questions via the Ouija board, it will not lower your sanity level. 

Evidence:

  • Freezing Temperatures
  • Ghost Writing
  • Spirit Box

Shade

Difficult to locate as it is quite a shy ghost type in Phasmophobia. It will not hunt if there are one or more other players nearby.

Evidence:

  • EMF Level 5
  • Ghost Writing
  • Ghost Orb

Yurei

Has a huge effect on player sanity. You can use Smudge Sticks on the ghost's room to prevent it from wandering too much. 

Evidence:

  • Freezing Temperatures
  • Ghost Writing
  • Ghost Orb

Oni

More active by moving objects when there are players nearby, which makes it easy to find and identify.

Evidence:

  • EMF Level 5
  • Ghost Writing
  • Spirit Box

After you've successfully gathered the evidence on the ghost type in a Phasmophobia session, you can head back to the truck, press "J" to bring up your journal to double-check the data, then enter the correct type of ghost.

Finish the game by pressing the button next to the truck door and you can call yourself a successful ghost hunter.
