Phasmophobia Wiki

"Some Ghosts have been known to leave fingerprints on doors, windows and light switches. This will show up with a UV Light."

The UV Flashlight is a purchasable starter item used to detect Fingerprints and Footprints. It can be carried and activated at the same time as a standard Flashlight or Strong Flashlight, but the faint fingerprints might not be visible under their light.

How It Works

Some types of Ghosts will occasionally leave Fingerprints on doors, light switches, and windows. The UV Flashlight provides a much easier method of detecting these prints than the Glow Stick due to the significantly increased effective range. Simply turn on the UV Flashlight and begin flashing the purple beam at points of interest to highlight Fingerprint evidence.


  • A UV Flashlight is not required to take a photo of fingerprints, only for players to see them; they may be discovered by errant pictures from the Photo Camera without having the use of a UV Flashlight at all.
  • UV Lights can be turned on and thrown around the house to light up the space, since the ghost can't turn them off.
  • As with the regular Flashlight, it will flicker during a Hunt.
