While on your adventures in Spelunky 2, you’ll sometimes come across an item called the Golden Key. This key is required to open the Golden Chests that you can find on different levels and to acquire some extra loot. In this guide, we’ll walk you through everything you need to know about how to find the Golden Keys and where to use them.
Where to Find Golden Keys and Use Them?
First of all, let’s talk about finding these Golden Keys. There isn’t any concrete way of coming across these keys. They can be found randomly in a level, from opening chests, and even breaking objects – it’s all RNG. But once you’ve acquired a key, you’ll need to use it.
As mentioned earlier, in order to use a Golden Key, you’ll need to find a Golden Chest. Similar to Golden Keys, the chests they’re used to open are also a little hard to find. In order to find a Golden Chest, you’ll need to explore a level to the best of your abilities. What you’re looking for is to find a door that will take you to a hidden area brimming with loot and an evasive Golden Chest.
One important thing to remember is that one can’t exist without the other. If there’s a key in a level, there must be a chest to accompany it. This should help you identify whether you should spend extra time on a level or not since taking more than 3 minutes on a level forces the ghosts to come out chasing you.
The reason why you should consider investing some time into opening the Golden Chests is to get a chance at finding an item called the Udjat Eye. This item once acquired lets you see gems through the walls. It’s one of the many useful items that you can find in Spelunky 2.
