The Ascension or 0.9 Update in Phasmophobia has changed how Freezing Temps and Ultraviolet work in the game. Those are just some of the many incredible changes made in the game.
If you haven’t been keeping up or is completely new to the game, you’re going to want to know what’s up. Especially when the tutorial doesn’t seem to explain everything and the Patch Note is too long of a read. We’re going to lay out what’s new and how to know if you’ve got yourself Freezing Temps or Ultraviolet evidences.
Freezing Temps And Ultraviolet Evidences Explained
Phasmophobia is still an Early Access game with constantly adjusted mechanics. Thanks to the active developers that often help confirm facts about the game with streamers and during their own gameplay, we’ve figured out a few things.
Among the evidences that have received changes, Freezing Temps and Ultraviolet (previously Fingerprints) are the two that had the biggest ones. And unless you’ve read through the long patch note, it’s likely you’ve missed some details. So, here are what you need to know about these two evidences.
Freezing Temps remains the same kind of evidence as before. However, Freezing Temps cannot be dictated by freezing breath anymore.
You will get freezing breath when the temperature gets low enough, similar to how real-life cold breath works (So, yes, you can get freezing breath even in the truck!). The only way to figure out Freezing Temps is to bring in a thermometer into the room.
Temperature will gradually drop to below freezing point when the game commences, which is when you open the truck. It reaches below freezing point faster if the initial room temperature is lower such as when it’s snowing.
Tier 2 and Tier 3 thermometers will be able to give you immediate measurement. But, you may have noticed how Tier 1 thermometer doesn’t work as fast. That’s true, but it will still noticeably drop faster in the ghost room.
Ultraviolet (Previously Fingerprints)
Ultraviolet Evidence has now included Footprints. Hence why the name changes from Fingerprints to Ultraviolet.
Ultraviolet evidence cannot be gained by taking a picture of a door with a fingerprint before charging it. This means the previous widely used method of taking two pictures on a recently interacted door will not work anymore.

Ultraviolet evidence now requires getting charged with either a glowstick or UV flashlight. There’s currently a general consensus that the Tier 1 Glowstick outperform the higher tier equipment. The glowstick is no more a single use equipment, but can be reused at any point just by shaking it again.
However, Disturbed Salt cannot be considered as a Footprint evidence. Any ghost can step on salt and give Disturbed Salt picture (except Wraith) and that does not mean they have Footprints. You must charge them with the UV light to confirm and then be able to take pictures of them.
And that’s everything you need to know about the new Freezing Temps and Ultraviolet evidences for Phasmophobia. Let me know if you want to see more guide on Phasmophobia and any question you have on the game!
