Boo and Mario go way back, and that's why it's paramount that you catch all the Boos in Luigi's Mansion 3. Don't fret as we have a Luigi's Mansion 3 Boos guide to help you with every spooky step of the way. Boos play a big part in the Luigi's Mansion 3 story, but the ones you can catch don't pop up until after you've cleared the floor. So once you've beaten a boss and jumped in the elevator with a new button, you can come back to do a little special ghost hunting.

When you do go back your controller will rumble as you get closer to wherever the Boo is, so follow the rumble until it gets the controller shaking and you should be right next to one. They hide in common places like barrels, baskets, drawers, and whatnot. They also move around, so if you choose the wrong place in one room the Boo will run off into a different room and you'll have to hunt them down again. You can also purchase Boo locators from Professor E. Gadd if you feel so inclined, but if you want to skip that step then look no further than all the Luigi's Mansion 3 Boos locations listed right here.
