How To Get Opulent Keys In Destiny 2
Before you get to any Destiny 2 Opulent Chests - which our guide has all the locations for - you're going to need to have Opulent Keys in hand to open them.
There are a few ways in which you can get Opulent Keys in Destiny 2:
- The Leviathan Returns quest
- Tier 3 Destiny 2 Nightmare Containment Chests
- Leviathan Destination Chests
- Haunted Alcove Chests
You are given a free, one time only, Opulent Key at the end of The Leviathan Returns quest but if you want to farm Opulent Keys thereafter, utilizing the Tier 3 Nightmare Containment activity, opening Leviathan Destination Chests, or defeating powerful enemies to provide you with Haunted Alcove Chests are the only ways to acquire them.
One thing note here, though, is that you are only able to carry one Opulent Key at any one time. So, as soon as you get an Opulent Key drop, get to using it or you're simply wasting time.
