Locations for Escape from Tarkov Keys
Escape from Tarkov has its fair share of unbreakable closed doors that need a specific key to get in. We made this Escape from Tarkov Keys guide to make your search for them easier, both regarding places where the keys can be used and found. Regarding key locations, you can find them almost anywhere, from dead scavs to different places on the individual maps. If there is a fixed position where the key spawns, they will be listed. Some of these places are also questing locations. The loot in the rooms may be consistent in some cases while it is random in other cases. In many rooms, there is money littered all over them.
Please bear in mind that this guide is subject to changes due to the game development. More keys are being added as new content is introduced to the game.
