Best Ghost Abilities in Midnight Ghost Hunt

Spirit

  • Type: Escape Ability

Due to the speed boost and flying, Spirit is at the top of the list of best ghost abilities to escape, and for a general stealth playstyle by a country mile. Short of flinging yourself across a room as a prop, you don’t need a better escape option. It allows you to skip through rooms, buildings, and entire areas crowded with hunters without being seen. Ideally, you use it to get far enough away that hunters don’t see you enter a new prop.

Miasma

  • Type: Escape Ability

Although Miasma is an escape ability, it’s useful during both hiding and midnight phases, placing it among the best ghost abilities. It deals damage to both hunters and their equipment. Plus, it slows hunters so they can’t bunny-hop through an area.

I recommend using Miasma with a prop to lure hunters into your trap. Then, deal damage to them while they’re trying to shoot. Since Miasma affects an area, you can also use it to help your teammates if they need a hand.

Death Grip

  • Type: Trap Ability

This ghost ability is similar to Miasma, but not identical. The difference is that it is more focused entirely on trapping hunters, while Miasma has a slightly wider application. Still, you can use Death Grip when setting up many traps in a sequence and aiming for a quick kill. Those who like to haunt doors or possess offensive props will easily find this among the best ghost abilities in Midnight Ghost Hunt.

Death Grip is my favorite ability out of the bunch. Placing it ahead of time means that you can drop it in a narrow hallway or small area. This can trick hunters into believing that a ghost is nearby, allowing you to ambush them from another direction or just have them waste time, testing more props for possession. Every second counts when you’re counting down to midnight for that supernatural power-up.

Telekinesis

  • Type: Distract Ability

Many Midnight Ghost Hunt players consider Telekinesis among the best ghost abilities to deal damage due to one huge advantage: throwing props at hunters to deal lethal damage. It’s worth noting that props will have lethal power only when fully charged, so be sure to use the Quickcharge perk with it to get the most out of it.

Poltergeist

  • Type: Trap Ability

There is debate about whether Poltergeist or Telekinesis is the better ability. But in truth, both are powerful in their own right. The biggest difference is that Telekinesis deals more damage on its own, while Poltergeist needs to be combined with the Corruptor for maximum damage.

You can use Poltergeist on its own as well but with reduced damage. However, the distraction effect will work, as with its help you can manipulate up to four props at once. Plus, using Poltergeist on props makes hunters waste their time searching an area for ghosts. But ideally, the ghosts wouldn’t be near the affected props.

Corruptor

  • Type: Trap Ability

This ghost ability makes props explode once they are in contact with the hunters. That’s why so many players use it in conjunction with Poltergeist and Telekinesis, and exactly why it’s on this list of the best ghost abilities. You can most definitely use it on its own, but if you want to deal damage, you need to use the Heavyweight perk to maximize your damage with heavier and larger props.

Doppelganger

  • Type: Deception Ability

The final ghost ability on our list can be very strong, but only in very specific situations, so it just about makes it onto this list. Doppelganger allows you to mimic the presence of a hunter and is best used mid-engagement. Because of its nature, Doppelganger is very much a high-risk, high-reward choice.

This gives you an opportunity for a quick surprise kill. This one takes some practice, but get it down and you’ll find that it is one of the best ghost abilities in the game. The biggest drawback to this ability is that hunter teams with good communication can discover a Doppelganger before you have the chance to do anything against them.

Those are the best ghost abilities in Midnight Ghost Hunt. If you found this article useful, then be sure to share it with your friends online! And make sure you visit our guide hub for more topics, especially with 1.0 officially launching MGH into full release.
