Demonologist Crucifix: How Does it Work?

One of the best protections against ghost hunts in the game. Learn how to use the Crucifix in Demonologist.

The Crucifix is a life-saving tool that prevents the ghost from killing you in Demonologist. Unless you want to see what the other side is like, carrying one around may just keep you in the land of the living a little while longer. However, they can be pretty confusing, as you don’t know exactly how they repel the ghosts and keep you safe.

On this guide, we’ll explain how the crucifix in Demonologist works and how you can use it to protect yourself.

How to use the Crucifix in Demonologist?

When the ghost starts a hunt, simply equip the crucifix on your hand, and it will protect you from being killed by it. It only works once and will burn away after it’s done its job.

A Crucifix in Demonologist costs $2,000 per piece in the Tool Inventory Menu, which can be found in your Safe House. It sounds expensive, but you can easily get the money back by doing challenges. It’s always a good idea to bring at least one per game.

There’s a limit to how many Demonologist tools you can bring. You’re only able to bring two crucifixes during an investigation, so your use of them is limited. You can also only equip one of the two. However, it’s extremely crucial and life-saving, especially when your sanity is low or if you find yourself in a bad position.

How to use the Crucifix in Demonologist

Unlike in Phasmophobia, where you have to set the crucifix down near a ghost before it starts hunting, Demonologist makes it more convenient to use. If you’ve played the former, you may have been mistaken as to how it works in this game. When compared, this one is more generous, as you don’t need to think about range to use it.

Tips on how to use the Crucifix

The Crucifix in Demonologist is a one-time-use tool with a valuable protection characteristic. So keep these in mind before you use one:

  • Don’t immediately use the Crucifix at the start of the game. If you’re lucky, you may not have to use it at all. In the later sections of the game, when the ghost starts hunting more frequently due to a lack of sanity, you’ll find the most use for this tool.
  • One of the best uses for the Crucifix is just before you use one of the Cursed Possessions items, such as the Ouija Board, Tarot Cards, or Voodoo Doll. These items are extremely dangerous and can trigger a ghost hunt even when you’re being very careful, so this tool will come in handy here.
  • Always keep in mind that you only have two uses for the Crucifix at most, so use it wisely.

That’s how to make the best use of the Demonologist Crucifix. We hope this guide helps save your life more than a handful of times.
