How to get Seraph Key Codes - Destiny 2

The fastest way to get Seraph Key Codes in Destiny 2.


Season of the Seraph has launched in Destiny 2 and with it comes new activities and currencies for Guardians to sink their light into. One of the new loot loops requires playing activities to build up Seraph Key Codes to open an extra rewards chest at the end of Heist Battlegrounds.

Once you have completed the initial introduction to Season of the Seraph, a new playlist will appear in the Helm to access Heist Battlegrounds which includes modifiers and Champions. Once the playlist Heist Battlegrounds activity is completed, the Seraph Chest appears and costs 500 Seraph Key Codes to open.

As for the boosts, there are two in the Season Pass that increase the number of Seraph Key Codes you receive. These boosts are unlocked at Rank 12 and 32.

Seraph Key Codes are capped at 2,000 maximum from the start of the season. This can be increased at the H.E.L.M. by purchasing an Exo Frame upgrade. One upgrade will raise the capacity to 4,000 while another will give a chance of receiving Seraph Key Codes when defeating combatants.

The most efficient way to farm Seraph Key Codes is Heroic Public Event completions. Head to the EDZ and do loops of the area to quickly hit the maximum capacity. Before you start farming, make sure you knock out your challenges, as Nightfalls offer another efficient method of getting the key codes.

As you near the Seraph Key Code capacity, hop back into Heist Battleground and unlock the Seraph chest for some bonus gear. For more seasonal guide content, be sure to check out the Shacknews Destiny 2 Complete Strategy Guide.
