What do Ectoplasm Stains Look Like?

When one of these ghosts performs an activity in a room, an Ectoplasm Stain is left behind. It can appear on any object, and interacting with it using an Ecto Glass reveals a glowing white brush stroke-shaped stain

For better visibility, it’s crucial to try turning off your flashlight when trying to spot it. Their most common locations are walls or close to light switches, so don’t rush through the room when looking for them. Furthermore, they can spawn as soon as you walk in the door of the map and appear even when ghosts switch rooms.
