Firstly, it should be said that you can simply buy a Golden Key from a player at the warehouse, average pricing being 1,000 gold. If you’re good for gold, then simply buying one could be a great option. If you don’t want to part with tha much gold, however, then you’ll have to get your hands dirty.

Golden Keys are a rare drop from Skeleton Champions, so you can spend your time grinding away at them hoping for a drop. Just make sure you’re prepared to kill quite a lot of them. If you’re lucky, a teammate may die whilst having one on them. You can take it, they won’t be needing it anyway.

Once you’ve got one, make your way to or find a Golden Door. Just don’t die on the way, what a tragedy that would be.
