"A laser grid of light that can reveal the silhouette of a ghost."

The D.O.T.S Projector is a piece of electronic starter equipment, as well as a type of evidence, that can be used to reveal the ghost running across it very quickly.


The D.O.T.S Projector can be mounted on the wall or floor similar to a motion sensor. It emits a matrix of bright green laser points in a small area from the projector.

When a ghost interacts with a D.O.T.S Projector, if D.O.T.S Projector is one of its evidences, there is a chance that a mesh-like figure representative of the ghost model will appear running or crawling through the grid. This can be observed by the naked eye or through a video cameras, except if the ghost is a Goryo, which requires a video camera to see the figure.

Dead players cannot see the ghost pass through the D.O.T.S. Projector.

The figure seen via the D.O.T.S Projector is unrelated to the actual motion of the ghost; its appearance only indicates that the ghost is near enough to interact with the D.O.T.S. Projector.

Though the D.O.T.S Projector is technically an electronic equipment, it is not activated when held, thus it will not attract the ghost to the player during a hunt.

Despite being a starter item for acquiring evidence, additional D.O.T.S. Projectors can only be bought when level 6 is reached.


  • Looking at the D.O.T.S Projector through a video camera with night vision on, and lights in the room turned off may help, as the silhouette is often much clearer and more developed when seen through night vision. Turning on device or in-game brightness may also help for seeing it without night vision.
  • The Projector emits a substantial amount of light when placed. Investigators can use them for radial area illumination, especially with a spare Projector or when D.O.T.S evidence can be safely crossed off.
  • It may be wise to temporarily disable the projector when checking for Fingerprints, as the dots may limit their visibility.
