Season 3 of Call of Duty DMZ launches today, and there is plenty of content for fans to be excited about. This is the biggest new offering of content available in the game mode since it was released, and it couldn’t come at a better time. Players will get access to new features such as Active Duty Operator slots, Barter and Contraband Workbenches, and fresh equipment, such as Plate Carriers and the Rebreather. However, perhaps one of the most sought-after pieces of content in Season 3 of DMZ is the Skeleton Key.

As described in the Season 3 blog for DMZ from Activision, the Skeleton Key is essentially a master key on Al Mazrah and Ashika Island. Once players obtain one, they can open any locked door, box, or building on any map, with the exception of Building 21. This is incredibly useful for completing Faction missions that require a specific key or simply opening a door that you know holds some nice loot.

If you want to learn how to get a Skeleton Key in DMZ, keep reading the guide below.

Unlike any other key in DMZ, the Skeleton Key can only be obtained by crafting it. This is done through the new Barter stations that are spread out across Al Mazrah and Ashika Island. Players will need to locate the Barter system recipe for the Skeleton Key, which has yet to be discovered in DMZ.

Once players have access to that Barter recipe, they will need the materials required to craft the key. The materials required to craft the Skeleton Key are:

  • x1 Videocassette Recorder
  • x1 Vintage Wine Bottle
  • x1 Encrypted Hard Drive

These materials might be difficult to come by in a single match, so players might want to save all of the materials they can if they’re planning on crafting a Skeleton Key. You can read how to find Vintage Wine Bottles in a recent guide of ours.

We will update this article as more details emerge around the Skeleton Key, such as where to find its recipe and the best way to get the materials.
