    How to identify Phantom – Phasmophobia

    All Evidence to Identify a Phantom in Phasmophobia

    You should not have any issues finding all the required proof to identify the Phantom for the most part. But If you have trouble or just want extra help, use the chart below to help gather all three pieces of evidence (Spirit Box, fingerprints, and D.O.T.S. Projector) for a Phantom in Phasmophobia.

    Spirit Box

    The Spirit box is an easy piece of evidence to find. Pick the box up, turn it on, and then go to every room in the house or location and ask the following questions: Are you Here? Can you show us a Sign? Where are you? Doing so will cause the ghost to respond with an increased chance if it has Spirit Box as a list of proof.


    To get fingerprints as evidence in Phasmophobia, you will need to cause ghost activity by calling it names, asking questions, or saying its name. Doing so will increase the activity and will cause it to interact with objects. If it opens doors or touches windows, you will be able to see a handprint shortly after.

    But this is only if it has fingerprints as an evidence type. Before you can see handprints, you will need a U.V. light; you can find one in the van. Pick the light up and shine it where the ghost touched the object and door, and you should see a handprint.

    D.O.T.S. Projector

    D.O.T.S. Projector is another easy piece of evidence to find. Just locate the ghost room, place it down in either the room or the doorway, and place a camera nearby. When your camera is placed, head back to the van and watch the footage until you see a clear figure pass through it. If you see one, congrats, you just checked off D.O.T.S. as proof. Keep in mind that the projector has been reworked in the Ascension update.
