Phasmophobia Trigger Words | List of Phrases to Trigger a Ghost

If you’re getting ready to hunt some ghosts in Phasmophobia, you may want to consider using trigger words to try and get the spirits to become a little more active. As you probably know, there are a lot of different phrases you can use in the game, so we’ve put together a quick list of some proven trigger words in Phasmophobia. 

List of Trigger Words in Phasmophobia

Since Phasmophobia allows players to use a mic to verbally interact with ghosts in the game, it’s not really possible to create a list of all triggering phrases in the game. However, a Steam user named JAVA has compiled a list of some trigger words that seem to work.

  • Fright
  • Frighten
  • Hide
  • Horror
  • I am scared
  • I’m scared
  • Panic
  • Run
  • Scare
  • Scared
  • Scary
  • Show me
  • Show us
  • Show your presence
  • Spooky

While the list above seems to be some sure-fire trigger words to elicit a response from a ghost, feel free to get creative with different phrases that you think may elicit a ghost. After all, since you can use a mic, you have the whole English language at your disposal — so get creative. But if things get out of hand, you may want to have some Smudge Sticks on hand to ward off the unfriendly spirits.

If you’re new to the game, Phasmophobia is an online co-op ghost hunting experience where players must collect concrete evidence of paranormal activity. To do so, you and your party can use a variety of equipment that you would see in most ghost busting shows, a variety of phrases and trigger words, cameras, and a whole lot more. But be careful though, these ghosts won’t take too kindly to being hunted!

If you’re not having any luck finding paranormal activity, you may want to try using Ghost Writing or looking for Ghost Orbs. Happy hunting!
