Looking for the Cycle Frontier Skeleton Key so you can gain access to loot rooms for special rewards?

The Skeleton Key can be found in the Swamp Camp area, which is located toward the south-west of the map near the giant skeleton remains. Keys in general are found within jackets, safes, and desks, so scouring each of these around the area should ensure you find it.

The various keys you can find in the Cycle Frontier are utility items that can gain you access to loot rooms that are often full of high-value gear. Due to the process of opening these rooms, they are often left untouched, meaning you can drop in and are almost guaranteed to get good loot from finding a key.

Keys come in different rarities too, marked by the rarity tier colors, which also correspond to areas of the map. The Skeleton Key is a rare key, but there are ones that are more common, like the Cycle Frontier Loose House Key.  

Once you've found a key, you can continually use it when dropping back into the map, but if you die you will lose it and be required to seek it out again. You can counter this by putting it in your safe pocket.

Inside there will be a few different weapons and grenade boxes, along with some safes, and a jacket, meaning you should get plenty of quality loot whenever you visit. 

That's all for our walkthrough of how to find the Cycle Frontier Skeleton Key and how to use it for powerful loot rewards.
