Animated Object is an object in control by a ghost with strong psychokinetic abilities. Not to be confused with Possessed Object for which a ghost is in.

Oftentimes, in the vicinity of a ghost with strong psychokinetic abilities, certain small objects will seem to take on a life of their own, moving at the behest of the controlling spectre. It's important to make the distinction between these objects that are being remotely manipulated and those having an actual spectral presence inside them.
It's worth noting that there's a distinct behavioral difference between an object with an entity possessing it and one that is merely being controlled remotely by a ghost. The possessed objects seem to behave more intelligently and will attack multiple times if they miss. The remotely controlled objects are generally flung once at the victim, either hitting or missing.
While plenty effective on ghosts, the Blast Stream also works fine on physical objects. This comes in handy when ghosts are throwing them at you! use the Blast Stream to break these to pieces, but be ready to get out of the way if your aim is off.
