Description and Reward
The Phantoms-Only passage is located near the base of the purple pump on the right side of the upper levels. It can only be accessed by starting both pumps and turning into a Phantom, at which point the player would need to travel right and activate the ladder before continuing to the next area.

Team Phantoms-Only
The Team Phantoms-Only passage is located in the southwest corridor of the main Phantom Fortress section. This requires two players (disguised as phantoms) to open the gate. The first treasure is located north the conference room filled with phantoms in a storage room. Storming-The-Fortress Phantom-Conference-Table.png Phantom Conference Table

1.1. 1.2. 1.3. 1.4. Destroying these objectives displays "+5 Courage Points" but it actually rewards a different number of Courage Points according to the CP meter and the network data.
2.1. 2.2. The Phantom Webs can be regenerated indefinitely for each Phantom Lookout as long as the player is spotted. For the purposes of this list it is estimated that a player would run into each lookout a maximum of 2 times averaged over all the lookouts.
3.1. 3.2. It is technically possible to complete the adventure without destroying any of the regular Phantoms, but it is also very difficult. For the purposes of this list, it is estimated that a player would have to at least destroy the Phantoms guarding each of the pumps.
4.1. 4.2. This includes all regular Phantoms that give CP, including those trapped in lab capsules. No CP is given for destroying any of the Phantoms summoned by Phantom Lookouts or any of the Phantoms spawned inside the engine room.
5.1. 5.2. This includes all Phantom Turrets that give CP, including those trapped in lab capsules.
6.1. 6.2. This includes all Bulky Phantoms that give CP. Destroying the Bulky Phantom in the lab capsule next to the NPC Jerry displays "+5 Courage Points" but it actually does not reward any Courage Points according to the CP meter and the network data. Additionally, some Bulky Phantoms spawned inside the engine room do not reward any CP.
7.1. 7.2. The only lab capsules that the player is required to destroy are the capsule trapping the NPC Barry and the capsule blocking the path to that NPC.


  • It was formerly possible to unlock the twin Phantom passage with only one player. This was done by stepping on the first platform, then quickly stepping on the second one while the first is still lit up. This was patched with the release of Hard Mode where they increased the space between the platform.
  • When in a Phantom disguise, the player is invulnerable to all the Phantoms inside the lab. However, the Phantom Watchers before entering the lab will still cause the player to immediately lose all of their hearts.
  • This is the first Adventure that Peck shows up in. She appears in the end of the Adventure.
  • There is a glitch where the player's Phantom disguise will remain after entering the Phantom Lab. However, the Phantoms will still attack the player as if they were not disguised.
  • If a player enters this Adventure as a flying Animal (such as through a glitch), they will find an invisible rectangle keeping them at the starting location and preventing them from completing any of the adventure.
  • There is a glitch where the engine room battle music will continue to play after the player has exited the Adventure.
  • There is a glitch where the player is unable to continue the Adventure after the cutscene.
