Phasmophobia: How to Upgrade Your Equipment to Tier 2 & 3

This guide will take you through the step by step process needed in order to upgrade your equipment to tiers 2 and 3.


About Upgrades

What are upgrades for?

Upgrades in Phasmophobia are there as a way for players to gradually get better equipment as time goes on. As you upgrade your equipment, the stats of said equipment can get better. Some of these stats are:

  • Range
  • Use Limit
  • Use Speed
  • Use Cooldown
  • Use Duration

I will use the EMF Reader for an example here. When you upgrade your EMF Reader to Tier II, the range of the reader will go up by 0.3m or about 1 foot and the look of the item will change significantly. This is the case for all of the equipment, making it a very wise choice to upgrade all your equipment as soon as you can.

How Much is an Upgrade?

Upgrades in Phasmophobia go up in price depending on the level you are upgrading your equipment to. The price for the Tier II upgrade will cost $3000-$10000 and the upgrade to Tier III will cost $6000+. Although upgrades in Phasmophobia do cost a lot, they make up the price by there sheer usefulness in-game compared to their tier I variant.

You will be able to find more information about the upgrade prices in the full upgrade prices section in this guide!
