How to unlock Night Vision Goggles in Phasmophobia

Before you discard your smudge sticks and use the latest technology in the form of your Night Vision Goggles, you must take a couple of things into consideration. First, you will certainly get frightened no matter what piece of gear you use – and no, I’m not projecting.

Second, like any other piece of gear in Phasmophobia, the Night Vision Goggles are available to pick up at the Safe House. And finally, these goggles are Tier 3 Head Gear, meaning that you will need to be at level 82+ to be able to use them. If you are just starting up your ghost-hunting endeavor, then come back later once you meet the requirements – and if you are scared easily like me, this will take a while.

Phasmophobia: How to use Night Vision Goggles

To pick up the Night Vision Googles, you will only need to click the “E” button – they unlock automatically once you reach level 82. To equip them, press the “T” button. Thanks to them, you will be able to see in the dark with the classic green color.

This is particularly useful in situations where there is limited lighting or flashlights are disabled, which is a hassle both mentally and game-wise. While these goggles will help you circumvent this issue, it will create a new one.

Yes, this piece of gear will help you out traversing dark areas, but the Night Vision Googles also attract Ghosts like light attracts flies. This is a complete horror trope, I mean, getting jumped by monsters while trying to find them? Classic. This means, of course, that you will probably die – and get massively scared to death in real life as well -, so once you begin your ghost hunt, simply remove them by pressing “T” once again to avoid meeting your ghastly demise.

Personally, getting scared by horror video games is a trait that I’ve had since the beginning of time – if it wasn’t abundantly clear yet -, so something like the Night Vision Goggles – if used correctly – is something I appreciate greatly.

Just don’t get overly excited with them and unequip them before these ghosts continue to haunt your dreams. And by dream, I mean your life. Be sure to bring other equipment to complement them like Sanity Pils, a Thermometer, and even Salt.
