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. 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.


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:


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.


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.
