How to Use a Crucifix in Phasmophobia

Phasmophobia Crucifix

When we jump into Phasmophobia and get the “Prevent a ghost from hunting with a crucifix” goal, it’s our worst nightmare.

The crucifix might just be one of the most difficult items to learn to master. Don’t worry though; we’ve clocked plenty of hours into the game now and we’re prepared to pass our knowledge onto you. Here’s how to use the crucifix in Phasmophobia.

First of all, what is the crucifix in Phasmophobia used for? It isn’t going to prevent you from getting killed, that’s the most important point. Holding a crucifix in front of you and walking around the house does nothing. If it doesn’t work in horror movies, it won’t work here, trust us. In order to effectively use the crucifix you’ll have to place it on the ground in the ghost’s room before it starts hunting. Before, not during.


The crucifix has a limited range to it, so you don’t want to place it in a corner. You’ll want it in a doorway or in the centre of the room that the ghost is haunting. The range of the crucifix is about three metre. If you’re in a larger location, like the prison or the school, you might want to use multiple crucifixes with you to keep your bases covered.

So, what’s the important takeaway here?

  1. While it may feel comforting to carry your crucifix around with you, it does absolutely nothing for you.
  2. If you don’t want to get killed, place your crucifix on the floor.
  3. It has a three-metre radius.

And there you have it. Hopefully these tips will help you stop a ghost by using a crucifix in Phasmophobia. Good luck!
