All Phasmophobia Cursed Possessions and their locations

These items are extremely powerful, but they're also quite dangerous.

To be a successful ghost hunter in Phasmophobia, players will need to learn how to make use of all the unique equipment available to them. Some of the most useful but dangerous resources players have at their disposal are Cursed Possessions, which are strange objects hidden around each playable map in Phasmophobia.

Since Phasmophobia is still actively undergoing development, with the next major stage being its official console release, more Cursed Possessions and more maps to find them on may arrive in the future. The Monkey Paw was added in a later update after the original six Cursed Objects, and the Sunny Meadows Mental Institituion map was as well, so players can expect this guide to be updated as any changes or additions occur.

How to use every Cursed Object in Phasmophobia

There are seven different Cursed Possessions players may come across when playing Phasmophobia.

  • Music Box
  • Voodoo Doll
  • Haunted Mirror
  • Tarot Cards
  • Ouija Board
  • Summoning Circle
  • Monkey Paw

Music Box in Phasmophobia

The Music Box can commonly be found sitting on shelves and other surfaces. Screenshot via Dot Esports

The Music Box is a small item that plays music to help players find the location of the ghost. Using the Music Box will cause a haunting tune to begin playing, and the ghost will sing along to it. Players can follow the ghosts singing to discover which room is the ghost room.

Voodoo Doll in Phasmophobia

The Voodoo Doll is a small doll with pins that can be found at fairly random locations across all maps. Using the Voodoo Doll will cause a pin to be pushed into the doll, and the ghost will perform some kind of interaction.

There are 10 pins on the Voodoo Doll, and each one may be selected randomly with each action players take. If the pin on the Voodoo Doll’s heart is the randomly selected one, a cursed hunt will automatically begin.

Haunted Mirror in Phasmophobia

You can use the Haunted Mirror to find the ghost’s favorite room. This won’t necessarily be where the ghost currently is, but it will give players a good idea of where they can most commonly find it.

Tip:

Keep in mind that the Haunted Mirror will only work while you’re in the haunted residence. If you’re outside, it’s useless. Additionally, every second you hold the Haunted Mirror will cause your Sanity to drain.

Tarot Cards in Phasmophobia

Players may find a deck of 10 Tarot Cards on any Phasmophobia map. Like the Voodoo Doll, the Tarot Cards are a game of chance, as players have no control over which ones they pull.

Using a Tarot Card has a chance of initiating various random events. Effects can include various outcomes, both positive and negative, like fully restoring the player’s sanity, triggering a ghost event, immediately initiating a ghost hunt, or reviving a dead player.

Ouija Board in Phasmophobia

If you want to learn specific information about the ghost you’re hunting, you’ll want to use the Oujia Board.

Each question players ask will drain some of their sanity, though, so players will need to choose their questions carefully.

Summoning Circle in Phasmophobia

If the ghost is giving you lots of trouble, you can use the Summoning Circle to instantly teleport the ghost and trap it for just a few seconds. Keep in mind, however, that a cursed hunt will begin as soon as the ghost is free.

Tip:

When you’re getting ready to use a Summoning Circle, it’s best to have one player ready with a camera. Once the ghost appears in the Summoning Circle, it’s only visible for a brief moment.

Monkey Paw in Phasmophobia

One of the freakier items is the Monkey Paw. Using the Monkey Paw will allow you to make wishes that have different outcomes. This item has many different possible effects, like restoring the player’s sanity, allowing them to see the ghost, reviving a fallen player, and changing the weather.
