Evidence is used to determine which ghost is haunting the location. Each ghost has a unique combination of three pieces of evidence that determines which ghost is present. Each player can record pieces of evidence that has been uncovered in the Journal to thin down the possible ghosts, and determine the ghost once all three piece of evidence are collected.

Types of evidence

There are currently seven unique pieces of evidence in the game that can be used to identify a ghost:

D.O.T.S Projector
EMFReader Render.png EMF Level 5
Fingerprints 3.png Fingerprints
Thermometer Render.png Freezing Temperatures
GhostOrb Sprite.png Ghost Orb
ClosedBook Render.png Ghost Writing
SpiritBox Ghost.png Spirit Box

D.O.T.S Projector and Ghost Writing is the only pair which cannot go together. A ghost may give D.O.T.S Projector evidence, or Ghost Writing evidence, or neither, but never both.

If you believe that some evidence will not appear, this table can be used to narrow down the list of potential ghosts. For example, if you have evidence of Fingerprints, but can reasonably rule out Freezing Temperatures as possible evidence, you can use the table to narrow the list of suspected ghosts to Banshee, Goryo, Myling, Obake, Phantom, or Poltergeist.

It is possible to sort one of this table's columns and then afterwards to sort it by a second column without making the first column become out of order by holding down the shift key. This extends to consecutively sorting three or more columns. This sorting feature can be used to quickly find the list of suspected ghosts, such as in the example that was just given above.

Photo evidence

In the game there are a number of items that count as photo evidence. Photo evidence can be counted by taking a photo of certain items with the photo camera.

Items that count towards photo evidence:



  • It is not required to update all of the evidence options if the ghost has already been conclusively determined; simply selecting the correct type of ghost is sufficient.
