The monitor displaying 4 players. Usernames redacted.

The Sanity Monitor is a screen in the van labelled "Team Sanity". It reads both the Sanity of individual hunters as well as the average sanity of the team, both expressed as a percentage. The Sanity Monitor is not perfectly-accurate, as it will oscillate by +/-3% in order for sanity to be perceived as more organic. Despite this inherent inaccuracy, it is still critical to gleaming player sanity levels, and by that extent seeing how aggressive the Ghost will be: as average sanity decreases, Hunts will occur with increasing frequency.

Dead players and players who are yet to load in to the lobby show up on the Sanity Monitor with a "?" symbol rather than a number. Players who have left the game will disappear from the sanity monitor entirely.

In Nightmare Difficulty, the Sanity Monitor is damaged, and will give random readings, becoming essentially useless. Use of the Ouija Board is thus the only way to get an estimate of one's current sanity.


  • The sanity monitor can be useful for identifying Ghosts that have effects on player sanity, such as the Demon; for example, if players are getting frequent responses from the Ouija Board, but sanity levels decrease less than expected, it is easy to identify the Demon even without Evidence.
