Phasmophobia is a co-op horror game that allows you to take on the role of a ghost hunter. Although this game is not for the faint-hearted, you can use your equipment to keep you safe from the spirits. At least temporarily. A smudge stick in Phasmophobia is a useful tool to cleanse the area and prevent spirits from entering the hunting phase. Also, they can affect ghosts differently, depending on the type of spirit you’re dealing with.
Smudge sticks are easy to use. All you have to do is add the smudge stick and a lighter to your inventory. When you are ready to use the smudge stick, all you have to do is switch to your lighter and turn it on. Then, switch over to your smudge stick and press the F key to light it. If you are using a controller, press the left trigger to light. Also, you can have a team mate walk up to you with a lighter or light it on the ground.
Stop a ghost in its tracks
You can either carry the smudge stick or place it on the ground in the room where the ghost resides. However, this is only a temporary solution, as you will see the smoke disappear when the smudge stick has run out. For most ghosts, they will be prevented from entering a hunt for 90 seconds. In addition, a spirit will be calmed for 180 seconds. If a smudge stick is used near a Yurei, it will stop it from being able to move. Moreover, this piece of equipment can also stop a ghost hunting for a total of six seconds, giving you a chance to escape.
It is important to note that smudge sticks will not make much of a difference if the ghost is already in the hunting phase.
Phasmophobia smudge sticks are easy to use and are a short solution to get you out of trouble. Perhaps, you may want to use a crucifix instead to keep the ghosts at bay.
