The Golden Key is a highly coveted item for a good reason. You can use this extremely rare item to access one of the most sought-after treasures in the game. Moreover, fittingly the room is gated by a gigantic gold door, and inside, you will find all kinds of useful treasures. This gold door stands out from the rest, and you will easily spot it on the southern part of the B2 Hell.

Currently, B2 Crypt 1 is the only place to find this gold door and use your Golden Key. You can use the key to get inside the room when you reach the destination after climbing the tower. Although, be careful, as a mob of enemies, including undead skeletons and spiders, will greet you.

Obviously, you will come across a tremendous amount of gold in this treasure room. But that is not all that the game has to offer. You will also be able to loot extremely rare equipment of high rarity, along with some jewelry. If you want to maximize the amount of gold and profit you get out of this treasure room, then be sure to bring along some golden pouches. This will ensure that you and your friends can bag the maximum amount of gold and treasure.

As far as obtaining the Golden Key goes, there are a couple of methods that you can use to obtain this key. We will discuss them in the next section of this guide.

It isn’t possible to get into this treasure room without a Golden Key, and naturally, these keys are not that easy to find. Luckily, we have covered all the methods that are known so far. Here are all the methods that you can use to obtain the Golden Key:

  • Skeleton Champions are your best bet at finding the Golden Key. 
  • The other way that you can follow to obtain the Golden Key is by looting other players who have it already. 
  • Last but not least, you can obtain the Golden Key by purchasing it from the Warehouse.

Defeating Skeleton Champions is the recommended way to go. These enemies occasionally drop the key, and you can fight against them in hopes of getting a drop. This is the easiest method that you can follow and doesn’t require any other resources.

This goes without saying that in Dark And Darker, players can loot other players after killing them. This method has a lower chance of success since you need to be more powerful as compared to your opponent. Moreover, you need to depend on the chance that the other player has a Golden Key, which they may or may not have. But if you happen to come across a player who does have the key, you can defeat them and claim it for yourself.

Keep in mind that since you can loot the key from other players, they can do the same to you. So be sure to be properly equipped and ready for a fight whenever you do find the Golden Key.

The last option is that you can buy the Golden Key from the Warehouse. This is kind of counter-intuitive since you are spending gold on getting gold, but chances are that you will get back the amount you spent and more. This is because gold isn’t the only reward in this treasure room, and you also get some high-rarity equipment. Some players sell the Golden Key they find for gold in the Warehouse, and usually, it sells for around 1000 gold.


Dark And Darker is a first-person dungeon crawler with a fascinating spin. The game is PvP and PvE, making it very enjoyable to play, especially with friends. The game takes heavy inspiration from Dungeons and Dragons and focuses on clearing dungeons and claiming various treasures and rewards.

We have entailed all there is to know about the Golden Key in Dark And Darker. Once you find this key, you will surely be greeted with a lot of riches.
