Fortnitemares 2023 has brought ghosts to Fortnite, and they are so helpful with finding Ghost Buried Chests. These aren’t easy to find because the location isn’t set in stone. Instead, you’ll need to pay attention as you walk around the map, but we’ll show you how it’s done below.

How to complete Search a Ghost Buried Chest quest in Fortnite

To complete Search a Ghost Buried Chest quest in Fortnite, you’ll have to find buried treasure. While exploring the map, you’ll find some ghosts that are just hanging out, they’ll be slightly transparent. They point in a random direction, which you should head to.

After going to where the ghost points, you’ll find some glowing hill of dirt on the ground. It’s as if someone recently planted a pirate’s treasure and didn’t care if the ground looked like something was obviously buried there. Just use your pickaxe to dig it up, it’s just like every other item you need to destroy in the game, so it shouldn’t take long.

Simply follow the direction of the ghost’s finger and look for glowing debris on the ground. This will indicate the location of the chest. You must now approach the chest’s location and excavate it out of the ground using your pickaxe.

In my experience, you’re gonna have a lot of issues if you follow ghosts in areas where players normally land. Those chests are either going to already be taken or players will use them as bait. Any experienced player knows to be very careful around chests in the open, as this will greatly increase the number of traps people set for easy prey.
