Want to know the best way to locate and deploy ghost traps in Fortnite?

Fortnite is an online battle royale game developed by Epic Games. The game was initially offered as an online co-op shooter game with four players. They take part in defending objects from zombies using traps and fortifications. 

For the battle royale mode, you can play it Solo, Duo, or Squad, and at the start, all players are airdropped to the island using the Battle Bus that crosses the entire Fortnite Island. 

One of the most exciting parts of the game is that it occasionally hosts crossover events and collaborations with various movies. Recently, Fortnite collaborated with Ghostbusters in time for the upcoming film and Halloween. 

The Containment Specialist NPC provides players with a series of Punch Card challenges to complete. The final task you’ll be assigned is locating and deploying ghost traps.

While the challenge isn’t too hard, following a guide will surely help.
