Gotta get that loot.

by J.T. Isenhour


The new season has arrived in Destiny 2 and has brought with it an old location. The Leviathan is back and looking worse than ever. However, this time, it isn’t a raid location but an open world to explore. With the return of the Leviathan, we have something new called Opulent Keys and with any resource, you will want to farm them. You’re not going to be able to find the keys by looking around the world like other resources, you are going to have to earn them. Let’s go over how you can quickly farm Opulent Keys in Destiny 2.

How to Farm Opulent Keys in Destiny 2

As you explore the Leviathan, you may come across Opulent Chests and see you need an Opulent Key to open them.  The only way for you to get these keys is as a reward for completing an activity on the Leviathan. You’re first thought to farm for keys is to just do the seasonal activity across the Leviathan and stack up some keys. However, you need to keep in mind that any activity can be used and there is one activity that can be done faster.


Patrols are what you will want to be spamming to farm up keys. Since they are quick little missions that normally have you killing enemies or collecting a resource enemies drop. You can even combine this with participating in the open-world seasonal activity to double up your chances to get a key.

Don’t go too crazy farming keys, since you can only hold one key at a time. So make sure to open a chest once you get a key before you start farming for your next one. While you’re farming for keys you can also work on getting the catalyst for the new exotic pistol added with the new season.
