There is an objective in Phasmophobia that needs the Crucifix. This guide on How To Use The Crucifix In Phasmophobia explains an easy but effective method of completing the Objective titled “Prevent the Ghost from Hunting with a Crucifix”.
Each level in Phasmophobia has a series of optional objectives outside of your main objective to find the identity of the ghost. Once such objective requires the Crucifix. This is not always possible as the objective can appear when you don’t have the equipment, and it can also appear on levels where you are hunting a ghost that doesn’t react to the Crucifix.
How To Use The Crucifix In Phasmophobia
The Crucifix can be very useful, regardless of whether or not you have the Crucifix specific objective. Depending on your difficulty level and the ghost you are hunting, they begin a hunt phase where activities usually go off the scale. The doors get thrown shut, locked, the lights go off, your torches begin to flicker. It’s usually at this point when one of your fellow ghost hunters becomes the hunted.
The Crucifix can delay this hunting phase but it’s a challenging and often unsuccessful setup. Due to the very limited radius of the Crucifix, it’s a good idea to have at least two, but three is also a very good option. It’s definitely possible with a single Crucifix, but it very much depends on what map you’re on and what room the ghost is haunting. In the larger rooms, one Crucifix can be very challenging but it’s easier to manage in the smaller rooms.
The trick to using the Crucifix, especially to complete the Prevent the Ghost from Hunting with a Crucifix objective, is to use it early. Head into the house and locate the room as quickly as possible. Once you have located the room, place 1-3 Crucifix down on the floor. If the ghost is within range of one of these Crucifix when it attempts to begin hunting, it will delay the hunt. The range is unclear but it doesn’t appear to be more than 5-10ft.
It’s not the most reliable technique in terms of saving lives but if you’re just hoping for the additional money for completing the objective, this has a decent success rate. It very much depends on where the ghost spawns for the hunt and where you place the Crucifix.
