How To Get Witch’s Key in Destiny 2

With the Season of the Witch now in hand, Guardians can obtain rewards from the Savathun’s Spire and Altars of Summoning activities.

These activities that were introduced in the season feature new challenges that provide rewards tied to the season, but you can get even more with a certain material.

This material is known as the Witch’s Key, which is the main key for activities during the Season of the Witch that will provide you with more rewards.

How to Get Witch’s Key?

The Witch’s Key may be obtained by chance as a reward for completing a majority of the activities that can be done throughout the season.

This means that almost any activity that you participate in will provide you with a chance to get a Witch’s Key but they are not so common.

By completing an activity, there will be a certain chance that the rewards at the end will contain a Witch’s Key and this includes seasonal activities too.

The following are some of the best activities that will provide you with a Witch’s Key:

  • Altars of Summoning
  • Savathun’s Spire
  • Crucible Matches
  • Gambit Matches
  • Vanguard Strikes
  • Nightfall Strikes

You may also get Witch’s Keys from Ritual Table as these may come as rewards as you continue to gain Ritual Table Reputation throughout the season.

How To Use Witch’s Key?Witch’s Key used to open a chest in either the Savathun’s Spire or Altars of Summoning

Once you have a Witch’s Key, you will automatically be using it the next time that you open a chest in either the Savathun’s Spire or Altars of Summoning activities.

Whenever you open a chest and have a Witch’s Key, this will cause the key to be consumed and you will receive additional rewards.

Additional rewards may include offerings, engrams, equipment, and even other Witch’s Keys whenever you redeem your rewards with one.


The Witch’s Keys provide you with extra rewards that make it easier to farm the seasonal items that you want during the Season of the Witch.

These can easily be obtained by playing through the game and if you are fond of grabbing Pinnacle Gear by doing activities weekly, you are bound to find these often.

Repeatedly doing Savathun’s Spire or Altars of Summoning activities can provide you with Witch’s Keys which may be used as you complete each session.
