Phasmophobia New Spirit Box, Use and Commands

The Spirit Box in Phasmophobia is one of your ghost-hunting tools used to talk to ghosts and give them commands, and new players always struggle with how to use it. The cause of confusion is usually why the spirit isn’t responding, or if it is, what exactly you’re supposed to do about it. As in, yes, you put Spirit Box into evidence, but what then? In our Phasmophobia Spirit Box – How to Use and Commands guide, we’ll explain how the tool works and provide you with a list of commands you can use to communicate with the ghost.

How to Use Spirit Box Phasmophobia

UPDATE: There is a new aspect to the Phasmophobia Spirit Box: the color of the light it flashes. If it’s white, it means that you got a positive response, as in: the box registered your command and the ghost responded. If the red LED flashes, the box heard you, but registered no response from the ghost.

To use the Spirit Box in Phasmophobia, the first step is to figure out which room the ghost is haunting. That’s the one where the temperature drops, the EMF starts beeping, etc. The thermometer and EMF reader are generally your best bet for this, but use whatever system you prefer.

Once you know where the ghost is, the person holding the Spirit Box should go inside. Ideally, they should be alone, but it’s not always necessary. Next, turn off the lights (candles can stay lit). Hold the Spirit Box in your hand, and either right-click or press the right trigger to turn it on. Now, ask the ghost one of the questions from the list below, doesn’t matter which one (do not mention the ghost’s name). If you get a response, mark it in the evidence section. If not, the Spirit Box is useless on this hunt; leave it and use other tools instead.

Phasmophobia Spirit Box Commands

In the list below, you’ll find a bunch of different Phasmophobia Spirit Box commands. If you have a spirit that can communicate via the box, you can ask it a bunch of questions if you want to, just to learn more about it. However, you just need to get the one response to confirm Spirit Box and enter it into the evidence. Any response counts, to any question. All that said, the list below might not be complete, but it’ll be more than enough.
