Ghostbusters WorldLet’s start with the Ghostbusters World basics. Your main job is building the team of best ghosts. You can collect the ghosts from the map, eco-spheres. On the map, you tap the ghost to enter the capture battle. Then you reduce its HP and throw the trap. Later, you hold down the blast button and aim at the monster and put it over the trap.

And to power-up the ghosts, you need many items. Additionally, to collect the legendary ghosts from the map, you will need a powerful equipment.

So the key points in Ghostbusters World game are – Ghosts, character’s equipment, items, the in-game currency. Let’s dive into the main guide and learn about the ghosts in detail, how to farm items, get details of each item, and much more.

Ghosts Guide

Ghostbusters WorldOnly collecting the ghosts on the map or completing the ghost collection is not the only task in the game. After collecting the ghosts, you have to analyze it; its grade, rank, element, stats. Because when you immerse yourself in the wide range of Ghostbusters World game’s modes, you will need this information. Let’s get started.

Ghost Element – Why To Know?

The game features an elemental system. All the ghosts belong to one of the five elements. Depending on the element, they are weak/strong against certain element type ghosts. Here’s the list of five elements: –

  1. Fire
  2. Water
  3. Earth
  4. Light
  5. Dark

How to check the ghost’s element? On the main screen of the game, at the bottom, tap the menu button -> ghost collection -> tap the ghost. On the next screen, at the top-left corner, hold down the element icon to know.

Buy why you need to know? Because you can take elemental advantage in the battles. How? Here’s how: –

  1. Fire-type ghosts are strong against Earth, but week against Water-type ghosts
  2. Water type ghosts are strong against fire, but week against Earth type ghosts
  3. Earth type ghosts are strong against Water, but week against Fire
  4. Light type ghosts and Dark-type ghosts deal equal damage(No bonus)

In the battle, check the enemy’s element and attack accordingly. For example; the enemy ghost’s element is Water. Then if you attack with an earth type ghost, you will deal bonus damage.

Ghost – Grade – Ranks

In the ghost collection menu, at the top-left corner of each ghost’s icon, you can check its rank or grade. Here is the detail: –

  1. S-Rank – Legendary Ghosts
  2. A-Rank – Heroic Ghosts
  3. B-Rank – Rare Ghosts
  4. C-Rank – Uncommon
  5. D-Rank – Common

Common, Uncommon ghosts are not good for the long run as you will have to invest a huge amount of in-game currency in building up their stats. On the other hand, S-Rank and A-Rank ghosts are good for the long-run.

How To Level Up Ghosts?

By increasing the ghost’s level, you can increase its power(CP) and other stats; attack, HP, defense, and more. Additionally, after a certain level, you will unlock the ghost’s passive skill. You should level up high-rank heroes; S-Rank, B-Rank, A-Rank.

You need an item named PKE crystal. PKE stands for Psychokinetic energy. You can obtain this item by capturing the ghosts or destabilizing the ghosts. Additionally, completing the missions, story mode levels, challenges also grant you this item.

Go to the ghost collection screen -> tap the ghost -> level up -> adjust the seek bar to select the quantity of PKE crystal and confirm. It will cost you coins.

How To Rank-Up Ghosts?

Reach the maximum level of ghost to use the rank-up feature. By ranking up a ghost, you can increase its maximum level, stars. Here’s the tree chart: –

  1. Maximum level of 1* ghost – 10
  2. The maximum level of 2* ghost – 20
  3. The maximum level of 3* ghost – 30
  4. Maximum level of 4* ghost – 40
