For months, we’ve waited for a new ghost in Phasmophobia. Fortunately, the most recent update has finally given us not one but two more ghosts in Phasmophobia: the Hantu and the Yokai. We’re going to look at the Hantu in Phasmophobia, its strengths, its weaknesses, and how to find it.
It’s All About The Temperature
The Hantu has a unique mechanic that we’ve almost completely forgotten about in Phasmophobia: temperature. When Phasmophobia first came out, it was easy to find the ghost’s room. Players would simply equip themselves with thermometers and find the room with the lowest temperature. However, finding the ghost room in Phasmophobia has changed since then. We’re making use of the parabolic microphone, the EMF reader, and our own ears.
In some games we play, we forget Phasmophobia has a temperature mechanic entirely. Fortunately, the developers have brought the temperature mechanic back into some relevance with the introduction of the Hantu ghost.
The Hantu’s Strengths And Weaknesses
When you first enter a house, the first thing you should always do is to go for the fuse box. Turning on the light saves your sanity, and could save you against a Hantu. However, if the ghost is a Jinn, then that’s a completely different story.
When you turn on the power, the temperature in the location slowly rises until the areas are warm. This is a weakness for the Hantu as it will move slower in warmer areas of the location. If the lights go out, however, it’s a different story. You may not see Revenant speeds on a Hantu when the location gets cold if you leave the lights off too long, but the Hantu will close the game on you in areas with lower temperatures.
How Can You Find A Hantu?
Surprisingly, while the Hantu does deal with temperatures, it doesn’t have freezing temperatures as one of its pieces of evidence. To find a Hantu in Phasmophobia, you’ll need:
