Phasmophobia: How The Tortured Voodoo Doll Works

The voodoo doll can be a useful tool for you to use in Phasmophobia, but it comes with several consequences.

If you’ve had trouble trying to figure out where to find the ghost in Phasmophobia, you can make use of the cursed possessions to assist you. While these items are slightly dangerous for you, they can help you narrow down the possibilities of the ghost’s room and what type of creature you’re dealing with.

The Voodoo doll is one of the special items you can find while exploring the map. Here’s what you need to know about how the tortured voodoo doll works in Phasmophobia.

How To Use The Voodoo Doll in Phasmophobia

The tortured voodoo doll allows you to trigger a response from the ghost whenever you place a pin into the doll. The spirit reacts to the doll, forcing it to reveal itself and interact with the environment.

If you can grab the item early during your investigation, you might be able to narrow down the location of the ghost’s room, making it easier to find it to gather clues. You can pick up the voodoo doll when you have nothing else equipped, and then click the right mouse button to stab a pin into the doll, triggering the ghost.

Similar to each of the cursed possessions in Phasmophobia, each time you use it, you’ll lose an amount of insanity, increasing the chances of a ghost entering the hunting phase to try and eliminate you. With the tortured voodoo doll, your sanity goes down extremely fast and has the option of triggering a haunt pretty fast. When we used it, the ghost reacted and found us pretty quickly. You may want to use this if you cannot find its room or have trouble getting the ghost to do anything.

I typically use the Voodoo Doll if I need help tracking down a particular ghost. Whenever I use it during my Phasmophobia game, it’s a good way to narrow down the ghost’s exact location, and if I have it earlier in a hunt than later, there’s a good chance it won’t chase my team. However, there are always risks in using this tool, and I feel that having it earlier in the hunt rather than later is a good way to mitigate those risks.
