how custom difficulties work in phasmophobia

Screenshot by Gamepur

Custom difficulties in Phasmophobia give you a chance with your friends to take on some of the toughest challenges available and encounter some of the toughest ghosts. You have the freedom to pick and choose what type of obstacles await you and what you’re going to be dealing with for every ghost hunt. The choice is up to you, but you want to make sure you pick the right options and know what they mean. This guide covers how custom difficulties work in Phasmophobia.

All custom difficulties settings in Phasmophobia

You can start customizing the difficult setting when you create a custom game in Phasmophobia. Even though it is a custom game, every option available in the custom difficulty menu comes with a reward multiplier, which means you and your ghost hunting team can still earn money and XP beyond standard multiplayer games.

You can choose to customize your Difficulty by going into a game, selecting the Difficulty in the Server Lobby, and then choosing Custom 1, Custom 2, or Custom 3 to begin modifying the settings.

You can change these settings for your custom difficulty in Phasmophobia.
