How to Use DOTS Projector Phasmophobia

To use the DOTS Projector in Phasmophobia, you have to activate it by sticking it to a surface. Basically, select it from your inventory and press F while hovering the projector over the spot you want to place it on. Like the motion detector. It can be on the floor, the walls, the ceiling, and apparently even some pieces of furniture. It works by projecting a bunch of green lasers all over the place, allowing you to see an outline of the ghost you’re hunting. If you’ve ever seen that scene with the Kinect from Paranormal Activity 4, you’ll know exactly what I’m talking about.

To make things a little more interesting, the devs have made it so that you have to use the DOTS Projector to detect the two new ghosts, Myling and Goryo. By that, I mean it’s one of the tools you need to identify the ghost. Speaking of, there’s one tip on how to use the DOTS Projector in Phasmaphobia. See, it’s very hard to see the ghost’s outline with the naked eye. What you can do instead is set up some cameras, and watch them from the van with night mode on. You’ll be able to see the silhouette of the ghost very clearly that way.

One more thing that’s important to note – while the DOTS Projector is a necessity with the Myling and Goryo, it can also come in handy with other ghosts, too. The Banshee, Oni, Yurei, Phantom, Wraith, and maybe others will also show up when scanning with the projector. While you can’t use it to identify them, it’s a useful way to zero in on their overall location.
