How to Find Ghost Orbs in Phasmophobia

Phasmophobia Ghost Orbs

Wondering how to find ghost orbs in Phasmophobia? Here’s what you need to know.

Each game of Phasmophobia presents you with different goals to achieve. The main goal, though, is to discover what type of ghost you’re dealing with. Poltergeist, Yurei, Shade or Spirit – they all have telltale signs that let you know which are which. Sometimes, ghost orbs can indicate what kind of ghost you’re hunting, but how do you find ghost orbs in Phasmophobia? We’ve got your answer.

Ghost orbs are little flickers of light that show up on cameras when there’s ghost activity. The first thing you have to do to be able to capture them is set up your camera. You’ll want to grab a video camera, not a picture camera. Once you discover which room the ghost is haunting, set up the camera in a place where you can see the whole room.


Once your camera is placed make sure the green light is on, which means it’s recording. Head back to your truck and check the computer screen on the desk. From there, you can flick between the different cameras you’ve placed. Go to the one you set up in the ghost room and wait.

What you’re looking for are little white flickers of light that flash on the screen for a brief time. It could be a split second or they could float there for a little bit longer. They look almost like bugs flying past the screen.

Once you see one, that’s that. You can mark down “Ghost Orbs” in your journal and start your next objective.

Types of ghosts that ghost orbs indicate are:

  • Jinn
  • Mare
  • Phantom
  • Poltergeist
  • Shade
  • Yurei

Hopefully this helps you in finding those ghost orbs in Phasmophobia.
