Phasmophobia is a new horror game that launched via Steam early access last month, and it tasks players with exploring various haunted locales while collecting evidence to try to figure out what kind of ghost they’re dealing with. To achieve your objectives, you’ll have various tools at your disposal. Here’s how to use the infrared light sensor in Phasmophobia.
Using the Infrared Light Sensor in Phasmophobia
At first glance, the infrared light sensor seems pretty useless. After all, you can’t get the motion sensor objective with this tool, and both ghosts and humans can trigger it. Furthermore, it’s an item that only gets unlocked at level 6, and it’ll cost you $65. However, if you use it correctly, it can be pretty helpful at times, even if it’s a bit situational.
First off, the infrared light sensor works pretty much the same as the motion sensor. With it equipped, press the F key while facing a wall to place it there. Whenever you, a teammate, or the ghost walks past it, the sensor will activate and it’ll fill the room with bright light. It’s worth noting that even when it activates, it won’t show up on the scanners and maps in the van, unlike the motion sensor.
So when is it useful? Well, you can use it as an emergency light source in the event that the power goes out in the level. When this happens, the entire area will be shrouded in darkness, and if you’re dealing with a mare which is more prone to attacking in the dark, the infrared light sensor can come in very handy if you walk past it.
You can also think of it as a way for people in the house to see where the ghost is. Whereas the motion sensor is handy for those in the van to check the ghost’s location, the infrared light sensor lets those already in the house know where the ghost might be. Because of this, it’s best to use both sensors together for the most efficiency in your team.
That’s all you need to know about how to use the infrared light sensor in Phasmophobia. Be sure to search for Twinfinite for more tips and information on the game.
