Destiny


 

Thanks to the dedicated fans of the Destiny universe, mysteries don’t remain unsolved for very long. The most recent question on players’ minds was what Destiny 2‘s kiosks requiring The Dance Party Key and Loot-a-Palooza Key were all about, and just a day later, we have an answer.

As part of the sequel’s recently kicked-off Faction Rally, Guardians reported finding new kiosks in the Tower that required the two keys to operate. Seeing as how they appeared in different faction areas, this led to the idea that the mysterious items would either be rewarded through faction events or by winning the entire rally.

In a YouTube video from MoreConsole, seen below, the Guardian Mythical Random shared how to obtain and use the keys. As it turns out, completing the Leviathan raid by defeating the final boss, Calus, can reward players with the Loot-a-Palooza Key. However, MoreConsole points out the key is only a random drop and not guaranteed, and the player must be part of one of three factions available—Dead Orbit, New Monarchy, or Future War Cult.

Once the key is acquired, players can head back to the Tower, insert the key into the kiosk, and get prompted to search for a hidden chest near Cayde-6. Platforming will be required to reach the specific location of the chest, but a marker will be provided on the map for faster guidance. Once the chest is opened, players head back to the Dance Party kiosk, use that key, and a small party commences. Sadly, only lights, music, and a chest containing a small amount of glimmer appear. To stay consistent with its “party” theme, the chest acts as a public event, allowing any Guardian in the area to open it and get the small prize.

While some players have reported receiving rare loot from the final chest, they aren’t better than most weapons and gear found through the current main events, like Trials of the Nine or Leviathan. All in all, the whole “hunt for the keys” game seems just to be a fun side adventure for players to enjoy in the midst of trying to earn as much reputation for their factions in the rally.

Guardians still have until October 3rd to join a faction and complete as many events in-game to earn reputation points for their teams. Once the clock strikes 2 a.m. PT on the final day a winning faction will be chosen, and its unique weapon will become available to purchase. It’s likely Bungie has, even more, prizes under its sleeve for the winners, so getting involved now is better than missing out on epic gear.

Destiny 2 is available for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, with a PC release arriving October 24th.
