How to Get a Skeleton Key in DMZ

No lock is too strong now.

Skeleton Key DMZ

If you’ve been playing the Call of Duty: DMZ mode for the last two seasons, then you know the importance of keys for containers found all around Al Mazrah and Ashika Island. With the launch of Season 3, players will be able to get a Skeleton Key to unlock any of the containers they want.

Of course, an item with that much potential power won’t be so easy to earn in a mode where loot is so integral to the gameplay loop. This guide will cover how you can get yourself a Skeleton Key in the COD DMZ and how it plays into the new Barter system.

COD DMZ – Where to Find a Skeleton Key

The Skeleton Key can be found at any Buy Station in Al Mazrah as part of the Barter System. It requires one GPU item to craft, but those are also incredibly hard to find. If you start on Ashika Island, you can at least find the parts to craft a GPU before entering Al Mazrah again. I have used this method before, and it’s much easier with a Secured Backpack.

If you would rather go searching for a GPU item then that’s certainly possible as well. These are rare drops that are tied to some chests and mainly PCs located around random office buildings. Once you’ve found a GPU, you can craft the key. For those that are on Ashika Island, you can attempt to craft a GPU there. I would be wary of going there without a Secured Backback though.

After you’ve bartered for the Skeleton Key in the COD DMZ, any lock on the map is yours to open. However, you won’t be able to indefinitely use the key, so choose wisely for your container. Hopefully, the GPU was worth it and you get the loot you need for your next exfil.
