Finding small items that are quite valuable in raid type of matches will lead you to either something extremely valuable or to a dead end. That is the role of all the keys available in DMZ, the extraction sandbox mode available in Warzone 2. You will find a lot of different secrets and rooms that will reward you with different types of rewards that can substantially impact on your progress in-game. So, knowing the key’s value, location and what they unlock is something that can be considered very helpful. For that reason, here is the DMZ key tier list in Warzone 2.

All DMZ Key Tier List

Once you find these keys, each of them will grant you access to a secluded or secret room or area that carry several types of rewards. The more rewards and more valuable they are, the best place the keys are placed in. So, I would suggest giving priority to the keys belonging to the S, A, and B tiers. These will grant you severe amounts of rewards, so be sure to collect them as soon as possible. Continue reading to know all DMZ key tier list in Warzone 2.

Now that you know what are your keys worth, be sure to keep the ones that are most valuable according to this tier list. You will only get to carry 20 keys (there are only 20 slots available), so be wise while holding on to or getting rid of the keys. Prepare yourself to open supply boxes and crates, weapons caches, armor and, well, huge amounts of money and valuable items. I hope you don’t get stuck with D and F keys, we are not talking about high school grades. But I digress, good luck!
