Deep Dive Keys are used to gain bonus rewards at the end of a Deep Dive activity by opening the Deep Chest at the end.

While Deep Chests grant rewards upon being opened, having a Deep Dive Key while opening one will provide you with bonus rewards.

This can come in the form of additional Deep Engrams or gear when you open a Deep Chest and the Deep Dive Keys will automatically be used when you open them.

Deep Chest Rewards

Deep Chests will reward you with Season of the Deep Gear, which seems to mainly be pieces of NPA Legendary Armor.

The additional chest can reward you with Season of the Deep weapons which are selected at random from the loot table.

You may additionally obtain Deep Engrams and these may be increased when you have a Deep Dive Key when opening the Deep Chest.


Deep Dives Activities are great for obtaining Season of the Deep gear and if you are trying to get all the pieces of armor from the season, this is a good way to go at it.

If you happen to have a Deep Dive Key, you can get even more rewards, which include the Deep Engrams that can be used for focusing.

It is best to use the Deep Dive Keys whenever you can to get as much gear as possible so you can later focus the whole set once Deep Armor Focusing is unlocked.
