A Fortnite Ghost Trap is a handy tool to have at your disposal now things are starting to get spooky across the island, and if you've ever seen Ghostbusters (surely you have, right?) in any form then you'll instantly recognize this as the trap used to capture and transport spirits to the Containment Unit. Unsurprisingly it's the Containment Specialist who has sent you out to deploy one of these devices as part of their Fortnite quests, and by doing so you'll be one step closer to completing their punchcard for the crossover event with Ghostbusters: Afterlife.

Of course, to deploy a Fortnite Ghost Trap you first need to know where to find one, as they're pretty small units and Fortnite is a big place to just be wandering around aimlessly searching. That's why we're here to guide you, so follow the details below to discover one of the Fortnite Ghost Trap locations then interact with it to complete your task.
