EMF Level 5 is a piece of evidence used to determine the type of ghost haunting the location.

You can determine the current EMF level using an EMF reader.


A ghost will have a 25% chance to produce an EMF level 5 emission when the ghost interacts with the environment (see EMF ghost interaction), such as when it causes the phone to ring in a classroom, given that said ghost has EMF 5 as one of its evidences. The EMF reader can pick up level 5 readings when thrown, and has a larger radius of which it will pick it up from.

EMF level 5 can be obtained from the site activity monitor by observing an activity increase or decrease of 5 levels. As the site activity monitor is an approximate representation of the total EMF currently present in the map, seeing multiple increases of 5 levels is a likely indication of EMF 5, especially if no players are currently inside the investigation area. An increase or decrease of 3 or 4 levels may also represent EMF level 5, but is less likely, as these levels could also represent an EMF level 3 interaction and/or a ghost event.

  • Previously, taking a photo of an EMF 5 reading would count towards an Interaction photo reward. This has been removed from the game.
