When playing for the first time, plenty of players ask the question, why isn't the Crucifix working? It can be a little tricky to get the hand of, but that's okay, because we're about to tell you why.

Why Is the Crucifix Not Working?

The likelihood is not that the Crucifix isn't working, but more so that you aren't using it properly. If you're shoving the Crucifix in the ghosts face whenever you see it, then it's not going to work.


That's the complete opposite of what you're supposed to do!

If the ghost is in a hunting phase the Crucifix is pretty useless. To put it simply, if the ghost is already angered or hunting, sticking a crucifix in its face will probably just make things worse rather than getting them off your back.

How to Use the Crucifix

To use the Crucifix properly, you'll first have to find the room that the ghost is located in.


Once you've identified which room that is, you have to place the Crucifix on the floor - not in their face once they've appeared.

If the room is quite large, you may want to consider putting multiple Crucifixes down, as their radius only covers three metres. Once placed, most ghosts will now be prevented from entering the hunting mode. So you can collect evidence and complete objectives.

Unfortunately, however, with certain ghost types, the Crucifix will have no effect on them. So, you'll just have to hide from them when they enter the hunting phase.

And remember, you have to place the Crucifix down in the ghost room BEFORE the hunting phase starts... it won't be of much use afterwards. Good luck!
