Fortnite Ghost trap locations: Where to deploy a Ghost Trap in Fortnite

Now you're a Ghostbuster!

Fortnite's Ghost Trap is the final step in the Containment Specialist questline.

Coming after Mini-puft locations, Seismograph locations and Ghostbusters signs, you'll have to deploy a single Ghost Trap somewhere on the map.

Thankfully, there are plenty of locations to deploy one - and we will recommend three locations close to one another in case you need some options during a particularly heated match.

Note this particular challenge is no longer able to be completed. So what's new since? Check out the Fortnite Season 8 Battle Pass skins, the new Fortnite map changes and the Victory Umbrella.

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.

Fortnite Ghost Trap location: Where to deploy a Ghost Trap in Fortnite

You can place a Ghost Trap across a large number of named locations across the map:


It's important to note that these locations aren't 100% exact, but, if you place a marker on the map where the exclamation marks point, you'll find yourself reasonably close to the location.

To save you searching, here are three Ghost Trap locations in the south-east of the map. You only need to deploy one, but in the event the location you start with is crowded with players, all three of these locations are connected by road - meaning you can reach the next within 30 seconds by car.

In Misty Meadows, there is a Ghost Trap located on the bridge in the middle of the location:


In Catty Corner, there is a road running through the middle of the location. You'll find it on the bend, just north of the garage:


In Retail Row, there is a number of stores on the east side of the location. You'll find the ghost trap location in the car park:


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.

Choose any of the above - or another in the map at the top of this section - to complete the challenge. This will also complete the Containment Specialist questline, giving you the No Ghost backbling.
