Spirit Box Key Words

While not exactly questions, there are some words that can manipulate how the ghost will act. These have been discovered so far but it is not exactly clear what it does when you speak them.

  • Show us your presence.
  • Knock something.
  • Make a sound.
  • Open the door.
  • Throw something.
  • Talk to me.
  • Talk to us.
  • We mean you no harm.
  • We are friends.
  • I’m scared.
  • I am scared.
  • scared
  • scary
  • spooky
  • horror
  • scare
  • frighten
  • panic
  • fright
  • hide
  • run
  • Show your presence.
  • Show us.
  • Show me.

In the game files of Phasmophobia, some curse words have been found that anger the ghosts:

  • F***
  • Bitch
  • Shit
  • See you next Tuesday (will leave that one up to you to figure out)
  • Ass
  • Bastard
  • Mother******
  • A**hole
  • Pussy

Wow, a game where you are allowed to flame... It's debatable how or if these words actually work and it would have required a lot of foresight on part of the devs of the game to actually code in the swear words but they are in the game files nonetheless. Some YouTubers have also tested these bad words to varying success and they appear to work. Let's hope we don't have people shouting obscenities all the time now!

The ghost will react to these words in different ways depending on what kind of ghost it is – they might simply make the ghost appear and quickly disappear. It is probably for the best that these things remain unknown because if the game is solved and finding the ghosts becomes a child's play, the game will lose its appeal quickly.

Maybe this helps you hunt down that pesky ghost next game and saves you your sanity. For more gaming news and information on Phasmophobia stay with EarlyGame.
