At the end of the new Defiant: Battlegrounds activity, you will be presented with two Treasure Chests. One of these Treasure Chests can only be opened with a Defiant Key. These have a small chance of acquiring these Defiant Keys from various activities in Destiny 2: Lightfall but some are better than the others. In this Destiny 2: Lightfall guide, we will walk you through everything you need to know about acquiring some easy Defiant Keys in Season of the Defiance.

Farming Defiant Keys in Destiny 2: Season of the Defiance

Before we start, it is important to note that you can only hold a maximum of 5x Defiant Keys in your inventory. Therefore, it is important that you spend these before farming additional ones. That said, below we have shared some methods that will help you easily farm for these Defiant Keys:

Season Pass Rewards

There are a few Defiant Keys which you can pull from the Season Pass. This is something which you should consider doing as you are working on your Season Pass. There is no need to endlessly complete Bounties to reach Level 100 as it is not super efficient.

Playlist Activities

There is a small chance of acquiring Defiant Keys at the completion of any Playlist Activity i.e., Strikes, Crucible, and Gambit. If you enjoy these Playlist Activities, you can definitely try farming these and hope for the best.

Dares of Eternity, Defiant Battlegrounds, Lightfall Campaign

You can also participate in different activities for a chance to acquire some Defiant Keys. These activities are Dares of Eternity, Defiant Battlegrounds, replayable Lightfall missions, etc. Aside from this, you can also increase your level with the Seasonal Vendor to receive a few Defiant Keys as rewards.

Farming Defiant Keys

Currently, the best method of farming Defiant Keys in Destiny 2: Season of the Defiance is to repeatedly complete Terminal Overload activity in Neomuna. You can keep on launching it from the Director until you come across a Terminal Overload which is already near completion. After that, all that you need to do is to kill the boss, open the chest, leave the zone, and return to open the chest until it disappears. If you need help with this, you can refer to this video that demonstrates it:

To sum everything up, below are all the sources that can reward Defiant Keys:

  1. Playlist Activities
  2. Defiant Battlegrounds
  3. Season Pass Rewards
  4. Lightfall Campaign
  5. Terminal Overload
  6. Dares of Eternity
  7. Seasonal Vendor Rewards
