Fortnite Containment Specialist location, quests explained

Who you gonna call?

Fortnite's Containment Specialist is a new character added to the map as part of a Ghostbusters: Afterlife event.

If you want to start their quest punchcard, you must first visit the Containment Specialist's location.

Completing each challenge from the Containment Specialist punchcard will reward you with 30k XP, which will help you unlock more Battle Stars for the Season 8 Battle Pass.

On this page:

Note this particular challenge is no longer able to be completed. What's new? Chapter 4 Season 2 has arrived! New additions include the Grind Rails and Kinetic Blades, along with the new Battle Pass, character collection and Eren Jaeger skin. It's a good idea to know how to get XP fast in Fortnite.

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.

Enter via the west side to meet the Containment Specialist.

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

Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 1 is here! It brings a free Lego Insider skin and redemption codes with it, along with a new Victory Umbrella. We've also got pages on new features like Medallions, Weapon Mods, and how to complete a Train Heist. Meanwhile, learn what the best weapons are in the current season, how to get XP fast, and what the best PC settings are to help earn a Victory Crown.

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!
