Players can either play as the ghost or as the Ghostbuster in Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed. The tips, tricks, and strategies to being a Ghostbuster boil down to working with the team and using the equipment correctly. Players must be well versed in ghost-hunting tools like the Proton Pack and the PKE meter to reliably bust ghosts.
Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed is a nostalgic version of the online multiplayer horror game Dead By Daylight’s 4v1 formula. When playing the ghost, players have to hide in objects, scare civilians, and haunt the building. As the Buster, the player’s job is to bust the spirit before it can reach a 100% haunt. If they want to play with friends online, the game is a great online multiplayer; however, players can also game solo with an AI team. For the best experience, formulating a plan with friends to capture ghosts is always the way.
With large maps that players and ghosts can get lost in, teamwork is the player’s best asset in the cleverly crafted game, Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed. Working with the team to decide on a plan of action is the easiest way to ensure a high ghost capture rate. Good communication between the team will help track down a quick, experienced ghost. There are controls for alerting the team to a location, so as soon as the PKE Meter alerts or the ghost has been sighted, a player can easily tag the location. If the ghost or rift can be seen, the alert specifies, but if neither is in range, the alert at least specifies the room.
Using the P.K.E.
In the Ghostbusters franchise, the PKE Meter functions as an EMF Detector. Much like identifying haunted ghost rooms in Phasmophobia, players will need to use this ghost energy tracking device to find the ghost. When starting any map in Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed, the PKE Meter is the first tool that should be used. While exploring, the arms of the meter rise, and the light pattern changes as stronger ghost energy is picked up. Once the source of the signal has been located, triggering a burst from the PKE will reveal whether it’s a ghost, a rift, or simply a haunted object. This same burst can also be used to take out ghost minions quickly if the player finds themself surrounded.
Where Dead By Daylight’s survivors must fix generators, Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed requires closing rifts. If all the rifts in a map aren’t closed, the ghost will respawn from one of them after being caught. Players can use the ghost to find a rift if they’re quick, but this also allows the ghost to slip away and hide their rifts in different objects. Once found, rifts are easiest to close with more than one player. However, working alone is not only very slow, but it also opens a player up to sabotage and slime. Both of which take more time to fix.
Following in the footsteps of Ghostbuster originals Ray and Winston, Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed players will have to drag the ghost into a trap after all the rifts are closed. Working together is the best way to accomplish this goal because more Proton Pack streams tethered to the ghost make dragging it easier. When players utilize each other as a tool, one player can throw the ghost trap while the others start trying to tether the ghost. With the ghost tethered, it needs to be caught in the trap quickly, as if the battery runs out, the ghost might escape.
Catching ghosts in Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed is already a dynamic experience without the flair of VR. So, the Ghostbusters virtual reality game in the works will undoubtedly make the ghost-busting experience even more fun. It promises a similar level of nostalgia to Spirits Unleashed but in a new setting. Playing as a Ghostbuster is a fantastic way to experience the world of The Ghostbusters, so VR can only make it better. The tips, tricks, and strategies for Ghostbusters in Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed may differ from those for Ghostbusters VR, but utilizing the team will have to be just as important.
