Phasmophobia: How to Use the Monkey Paw and Full Wish List

Make a wish upon a... paw?

The Monkey Paw is a new item introduced in the Phasmophobia Tempest v0.8.1.0 Update and lets players make wishes. 

Like many demonic items or creatures that grant wishes, there might be a downside to always getting what you want. Phasmophobia’s newest Tempest Update proves that with a new item players can find during their investigations. Here’s what you need to know about the Monkey Paw and all the wishes you can make with it. 

How to Use the Monkey Paw in Phasmophobia

The Monkey Paw has a chance to spawn on different maps and has 12 total wishes players can take advantage of while on an investigation. To use the item, pull out the Monkey Paw and say the Wish Line into your microphone.

Each Wish is only available one time per mission. While the Wish line text can be found inside Sunny Meadows Mental Institution and added to your Journal when discovered, they are just a reminder of the lines and not required to use the Monkey Paw. 

The number of wishes per paw will correspond to the difficulty or multiplier for that contract:

  • 0x – 1.9x Rewards: 5 wishes
  • 2x – 2.9x Rewards: 4 wishes
  • 3x Rewards or higher: 3 wishes
