Containment Specialist location and questline explained

The Containment Specialist is located in Camp Cod, an island in the south-east corner of the map:

If you squint, you can see the blue marker in the bottom right corner.

Specifically, you must visit a building on the south side. It'll have 'Dirt' written on the side so you know it's the right place.

Talk to them and add their punchcard to your quest log to get started on the event.


Big changes are coming! Find out when the Fortnite The End event time is in your region - don't worry, there's still time to grab the the Cube Queen skin before it goes. Recent quests include Touch a Cube, Spirit Vessel Caretaker's footprints, Command Signal, scroll locations, mini-pufts, seismographs, Ghostbusters signs and deploying a ghost trap for the Containment Specialist. Elsewhere in Season 8, you can start using Sideways weapons, partake in Sideways encounters, and find colour bottles for Tonna Fish.


Fortnite Ghostbusters: Afterlife quest steps

Once you have found the Containment Specialist, the Ghostbusters: Afterlife quests are as follows:

  1. Deploy Seismographs in Misty Meadows or Catty Corner
  2. Exterminate mini-Puffs with a Pickaxe in Sludgy Swamp, Lazy Lake or Retail Row
  3. Retrieve mechanical parts by destroying Cars
  4. Place Ghostbusters signs in Holly Hedges, Dirty Docks or Pleasant Park
  5. Deploy a Ghost Trap

Once the questline is complete, you'll unlock the No Ghost backbling - which displays the Ghostbusters logo behind you in a holographic fashion. Well worth the effort!
