What Are Keys for in Diablo 2: Resurrected?

Diablo 2 (1)

As you battle your way through Diablo 2: Resurrected you’re bound to come across a hell of a lot of keys, and you might be wondering what they’re for.

Of course, being keys, they’re for opening things. What else would you do with a key? So the question really is, what do keys open in Diablo 2: Resurrected? The answer is locked chests, and while it’s arguable they they contain better loot, a chest that remains locked is a chest that could have contained a truly valuable item.

To use keys in Diablo 2: Resurrected you don’t need to do anything. Just make sure you have some keys in your inventory, and when you interact with a locked chest it will be opened. Keep an eye on the number of keys you have, though; you don’t want to run out, after all. Thanks to a number of them being stacked, we like to dedicate just one or two squares in our inventory to them, dropping or selling any we pick up in excess.

One thing to note, though, is that if you’re playing as an Assassin in Diablo 2: Resurrected you don’t need to concern yourself with keys at all. The Assassin can open locked chests without them, you see? So, if you’re playing as an Assassin, you can simply leave all the keys you find on the ground, freeing up some valuable inventory space.
