Throughout The Division 2, you’ll come across faction boxes that are locked and can only be opened with a faction-specific key. But where do you find those keys? This quick guide will go over the simple process to find faction keys.

To find faction keys in The Division 2, you’ll have to explore the various sewer systems that run under the city. Each district in Washington, D.C. has a few, and if you haven’t run across one yet, you can find all of them by using this handy interactive map for The Division 2.

Each of these entrances connects to another entrance several blocks away. These tunnels help you quickly travel throughout the city without having to deal with random encounters.

As you make your way through each of these tunnels, you’ll find several lootable boxes, chests, bags, and more. However, you’ll find faction keys inside white key boxes.

Each tunnel has at least one key box that will offer up a faction key for one of the game’s factions, but some tunnels feature more than one. This map will show you many keys exist in each tunnel.

Keep an eye out for the orange glow around any wall-mounted box you come across. Some are regular electrical boxes, but the boxes containing faction keys will have that familiar orange glow, letting you know it’s a lootable object.

Each of the keys you find will only work on lockboxes for specific factions, so pay attention to which faction key you find when you discover a key box.
