The Voodoo Doll is a classic case of “Do Not Touch”. It should really have a neon sign over it telling players not to mess with it. We’ll walk you through what the Voodoo Doll does in Phasmophobia, and why you shouldn’t play with it.
What the Voodoo Doll looks like
The Voodoo Doll is far from cute. You can spot this little toy in the Farmhouse locations. It stands out from other items, since it looks like a little burlap person with bulging red button eyes and stitched up lips.
It’s literally the only thing the Ghost cares about
Most people have a stuffed toy, blanket, or some other peculiar item they were attached to growing up. In Phasmophobia, the Voodoo Doll is the item the Ghost is attached to. If you find the Voodoo Doll, don’t even think about taking it. If you steal the Voodoo Doll, the Ghost is more likely to trigger a Hunt and end your life. It’s like taking a bone out of a dog’s mouth: you just don’t do it unless you want to get bit.
Does it do anything?
Aside from making the Ghost angry, the Voodoo Doll doesn’t do much. There’s a glitch in the game that throws the doll with extreme velocity in a random direction. Some players have interpreted the glitch as the Voodoo Doll wanting to go back to its owner, and that theory hasn’t been confirmed or denied yet. Chances are that it’s a byproduct of Phasmophobia being an early access game.
Players believe that taking the Voodoo Doll out of the Ghost house or location will seriously upset the Ghost. Try not to remove the doll unless you have a game plan. It would really suck to mess around with the Voodoo Doll for a laugh only to die shortly afterwards. You’re better off taunting or swearing at the Ghost if you’re trying to make them upset for a laugh. Taking the doll makes your offenses feel personal, and the punishment will be proportional.
