Phasmophobia Questions List

  • “I wish for activity.” or “I wish the ghost would do something.”
    • This question doubles ghost activity for two minutes, but locks exit doors and will break the fuse box for the rest of the investigation.
  • “I wish to see the ghost.”
    • This question initiates the ghost showing itself in its current location, while lessening the user’s vision. A cursed hunt will start after a few seconds.
  • “I wish for sanity” or “I wish to be sane.”
    • This question makes it so every player has 50% sanity, but it will increase the sanity drain for the rest of the investigation and will move the ghost to another room.
  • “I wish the ghost was trapped.” or “I wish to trap the ghost.”
    • This question moves the ghost to a different room and locks the doors to it for a minute, but it’ll also lock the doors to the room the person who makes the wish is in. Afterward, a cursed hunt will start.
  • “I wish for sun/rain/snow/wind/fog/clear sky.”
    • This wish temporarily blinds the player, then changes the weather to the requested type.
  • “I wish to be safe.”
    • This question bursts the lightbulbs in the room the Monkey Paw users are in, but removes blockage from the closest hiding spot. The person who asked the question will then be sensed by the ghost for the rest of the investigation.
  • “I wish for anything.”
    • This question triggers one of any of the effects from other questions.
  • “I wish for knowledge.”
    • This wish starts a cursed hunt near the person using the Monkey Paw, while marking off one of the incorrect evidences in the journal. After making this wish, they’ll be afflicted with poor sight and hearing.
  • “I wish for life.” or “I wish to revive my friend.”
    • This wish revives a dead player, but has a 50/50 chance of killing the Monkey Paw user.

And that’s it for all the Phasmophobia Monkey Paw questions. I like using this particular cursed item, but it’s not without its downsides. Reviving a dead player is particularly useful.
