Activating the music box in Phasmophobia will cause the ghost to start singing, indicating the room it is in. If the music box playing is near the ghost (5 meters or less), the phantom will reveal itself and start walking towards the cursed object. When using the music box, you can hold it in your hands or place it on the ground after activation. The second way is definitely safer, as it protects you from the cursed hunt. When the melody ends, the box will close and cannot be used again.

Phasmophobia music box – what to watch out for?

Using a music box is very dangerous because it can trigger a cursed hunt. The spirit can start it in the following cases:

  • The ghost touches the player who is holding the music box,
  • Player walks around with the music box on for more than 5 seconds,
  • Player has 0% mental health,
  • The music box will be knocked out of the player’s hand while the melody is playing.

If any of the above scenarios happen in the game, the music box will stop the tune and the ghost will immediately start a cursed hunt. The music box in Phasmophobia will also stop if the hunt begins for any other reason.

Listening to music box music causes the player to lose mental health. A person holding a music box in Phasmophobia and listening to the entire melody will lose about 70% of their Mental Health. Mental health is only reduced if the player hears the music box song, and the rate of mental health reduction depends on the player’s distance from the cursed item. This affects all players on the map, regardless of whether they activated the music box or not.

I'm a fan of many games from very different genres - from simulations to platformers to shooters. I've definitely spent the most time in sims creating generation after generation (especially in The Sims 2) and in Minecraft building lots of buildings and exploring the world.
