Destiny 2 final season, Season of the Wish aka Season 23 is now live with a series of changes and additions to the game. With all-new seasonal activities in roll for players to complete to earn new weapons and rewards, there is a new currency called Lair keys that players must consider farming to unlock the chests at the end of the seasonal activities to gain extra rewards.
In this guide, we’ll go over how to get Lair Keys in Destiny 2.
How to Get Lair Keys in Destiny 2
Lair Key is a new currency in Destiny 2 added with its new and final season, Season of the Wish. If you are a veteran/old player who is familiar with the Lightfall seasons, you will have a basic idea of how this new currency works. The Lair Keys are reminiscent of Deep Dive Keys along with Defiant Keys, Witch Keys, and Salvage Keys which are obtained from completing any non-seasonal activities. The number of Lair Keys that players can hold in their inventory at a time is 5, similar to the other keys in the previous seasons.
The non-seasonal activities have a low drop rate for the Lair Keys but if you complete the non-seasonal activities and Ritual Activities inside the Dreaming City region, then the drop rate for Lair Keys will be higher than usual. You can start earning the Lair Keys by participating in Gambit, Crucible, Vanguard Ops, and many more activities in the Dreaming City. Additionally, the Seasonal Pass of Season of the Wish also grants Lair Keys as a reward at certain ranks. There are 4 Lair keys in total that can be obtained from the season pass of Season of the Wish. Reaching 12, 24, 52, and 92 tiers in the Season Pass will award you with the Lair keys.
Alternatively, players can also earn Lair Keys by progressing in the Seasonal Story. Completing the first week of the Seasonal Story will reward players with 1x Lair key and as players reach 7 and 13, they will get 2x Lair Keys from Riven.
Basic Farming Method for Lair Keys
Players can also farm the Lair Keys by opening chests inside the Dreaming City region. You can find the chests easily by using the Ghost Mod Wombo Detector with any sniper rifle weapon. Equip the Wombo Detector and start ADSing in the open areas to highlight any chests in the surroundings. Loot the chest to have a chance of getting the Lair keys along with Riven Rep.
How to Use the Lair Keys
The usage of Lair Keys is to open the chests at the end of the seasonal activities of Season of the Wish which include Riven’s Lair and The Coil. After completing the seasonal activity, a chest will spawn in the end room which will unlock only if you have a Lair Key. If you don’t have any Lair Key, you will still get rewards but not from the chests that appeared so by having Lair Keys in the inventory, you have the chance of getting extra rewards and weapons by completing the activities.
