Fortnite Mini-Puft locations in Sludgy Swamp, Lazy Lake or Retail Row explained

Stay put!

Fortnite Mini-Pufts are one of the quests in the Containment Specialist questline.

Alongside Seismographs locations, you'll have to find tiny versions of the Stay Puft Mashmallow Man who cluster in three locations - Sludgy Swamp, Lazy Lake or Retail Row.

Thankfully, you only need to visit one of these locations, as since all of them will feature several Mini-Pufts, you can exterminate all three in a single visit.


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.

The Mini-Puft locations in Sludgy Swamp are located just off the centre of the location, inside a corner building - if you see the location as a giant L, in the inside corner is where you must visit:

Head inside the building and on the ground floor is a counter - with the Mini-Pufts among several boxes.

Exterminate three with your axe and the quest will be finished.

In this yard you'll see a BBQ area at the south end. It's here you'll find the Mini-Pufts.

Exterminate three with your axe and the quest is done. After you have found mechanical parts, you will then have to deploy a ghost trap.
