Salt is one of the items you can buy before a job to aid in your ghost investigation in Phasmophobia.
It’s not a default item but it’s useful to bring it each time before a job.
Here’s how you can use salt and what it is for in Phasmophobia.
How to use salt
Before you can use it, purchase salt for $15 from the item store. You should also buy at least one glowstick ($20) to be used together with the salt.
Once you’ve ascertained the room, place the salt nearby. It can be just outside the door or inside the room, or both.
As each ‘salt can’ gives around three times of usage, you can place salt in a few areas.
What does salt do?
The purpose of putting salt is to find ghost footprints. If the salt has been stepped on, it means the ghost has walked over it.
Throw a lighted glowstick on the salt to check for footprints. If there are footprints, photograph it with a photo camera to get more money.
If you don’t see any footprints, then it’s probably a Wraith.
