Ghostbusters: Spirits Freed leaves nothing to chance when it comes to bringing the Ghostbusters fantasy to life. With five cards to choose from, a variety of ghosts, equipment to level upand the ability to customize your very own Ghostbuster, you and your friends will have loads of fun running around ghosts.
That being said, ghosts in this game are kind of a tricky enemy. They have powerful abilities that can hinder or even harm you. They have lots of tricks to escape and they can fly. To maximize your destruction capacity, you’ll want to be well equipped with everything the game has to offer. That’s why you’ll want to put the Gear Cart to good use. The Equipment Cart is loaded with you at the start of each match and remains at the building entrance. It can’t be moved by the Ghost or Ghostbusters, so you’ll have to come back to it every time you need to change gadgets or restock an item.
When you first start the game, you receive a fairly standard set of gear. You’ll want to upgrade this gear and your Ghostbuster to start unlocking better abilities and more advanced gear. When you open the Gear Cart, you’ll see your gadget options on the left side of the screen.
If you’re a level fifty Ghostbuster, you’ll be able to choose whichever gadget you prefer, which includes VAD, Ionizer Pods, a Radar Puck, and Ecto Goggles. Each of these items have their own unique abilities, so you’ll want to try them out and see which ones best suit your playstyle. Remember, you can change them at any time in the Equipment Cart. So if you decide something isn’t working for you, don’t be afraid to take a moment to change it. You’ll always be better off with equipment you feel comfortable with.
Restock your Ghostbuster
The right side of the screen is where you can restock your Ghostbuster with anything it might need. In some cases, gadgets have a limited amount of charges or ammo that will need to be recharged from time to time. You can also get a new Ghost Trap here if you’ve misplaced yours. Again, try not to misplace your traps. They are extremely valuable in tense situations.
It’s also worth noting that if you throw your trap and become incapacitated, the ghost may grab your trap and run away with it. Without the ability to trap the ghost, your Ghostbuster has little choice but to waste valuable time returning to the Gear Cart for resupply. You’ll want to avoid this as much as possible, but it’s good to know that a ghost stealing your trap doesn’t mean it’s gone for the rest of the game. Remember that there is no limit or cooldown associated with restocking the Gear Cart, so use it as much as you can without wasting too much time.
