How do You Get Corrupted Key Codes in Destiny 2?
Just where do these things come from?
There’s a new resource in Destiny 2 to spend all of your time gathering, and it’s Corrupted Key Codes. These are important for pulling back the cloak of permanent twilight that the Vex has inflicted on us, and it’s imperative that we push forward and work as hard as we can against that. These items help with our efforts, but they can be a bit finicky to earn. In this guide, we’ll explain how you can get yourself as many. Corrupted Key Codes in Destiny 2 as you possibly can.
How to Earn Corrupted Key Codes
The community has done a fair bit of testing on this, and it seems like these will drop from pretty much every PvE activity. This means that you can play Expunge, Override, Strikes, Nightfalls, or anything else in the system and pick them up as you go. Make sure you’re playing regularly and killing enemies and you’ll basically always get something for your time. That’s quite important for me, so it makes rushing through completing Seasonal Challenges feel even more rewarding.
The drop rate of Corrupted Keys is extremely random. Don’t expect to get a consistent flow of these at all. They’re used to open Corrupted Conflux Chests which appear in Expunge missions, and open up a new source for loot to gather before Season of the Splicer comes to a close.
The best thing to do is farm as many Corrupted Key Codes as possible, then jump into an Expunge mission. Once you’re done with the boss, you’ll be able to open the chest at the end and reap your rewards. This is a new loop to consider when looking at how much time you want to spend in the game.
It’s possible to increase the rewards you get from these chests by visiting the Servitor at the H.E.L.M. Head there are interact with it to upgrade the boxes on the right. These will increase your rewards. They cost between 100 and 500 Decrypted Data, so choose which ones you go for wisely. It’s worth doing if you’re chasing the best loot in the season though, because it isn’t going to get better than this.
