A ghost is an NPC which inhabits haunted worlds (worlds which haven't been visited for a long time). They were added as part of the Battlers Of the Otherworldly update.


Ghosts spawn in a world which has not been visited for a long time. They can spawn in any world, with the exception of worlds with Ghost Charms placed in them. A limit of 25 ghosts is imposed upon each world. 


A ghost flies around mindlessly. It, however, moves towards a player with a Neutron Gun and a Neutron Pack whose punch is in its way. Depending on its type, a ghost either does not visibly appear or appears faintly to players without Spectral Goggles or Synthetic Oculum.

Ghosts can grant certain mods to players upon contact unless special items are worn, such as the Rubber Boots. When a ghost comes in contact with the rings of a placed Ghost Jar or Ghost Trap, the ghost will be sucked in and disappear alongside the item. Depending on its type, a Ghost-In-A-Jar, Mind-Ghost-In-A-Jar, or an Ancestor Mooncake will then appear in one's backpack.

Equipping a Neutron Pack along with a Neutron Power Glove allows the player to instantly remove surrounding ghosts with each punch. Unlike the Neutron Gun, a Neutron Power Glove does not nullify the player's punch damage, nor does it kill the player should they end up crossing fire with other players.
