How to find the Chalice Keycard in Destiny 2 Lightfall

Destiny 2 Lightfall campaign starts by asking players to find keycards, which are challenging, especially the Chalice Keycard. Here is how to find it.

Destiny 2 Lightfall brings an immersive yet extensive gaming experience in the campaign mode. As required to destroy the final ship, the Chalice keycard is required, which can be pretty difficult to find. But not impossible. After diverging from the main path, you can find the Chalice keycard by defeating Chalice Keymaster in the area under the locked doors labeled ‘Chalice’ in the ‘First Contact’.

Why do We Need Keycards in Destiny 2 Lightfall?

The Guardians must pass through the Cabal fleet to protect Neomuna from their destructive domination. To make this mission successful, Guardians (us players) must sabotage their plans by messing with the systems established on each ship.

Now to enter these ships, we require keycards that the commanders of the Cabal ships use. These keycards open the pathway to the ship, which players have to enter to mess with the systems and ruin the enemy’s plans. For this purpose, we may have to find and take down various high-ranking Cabal officers to retrieve keycards from them. However, when it comes to finding the Chalice keycard, it’s not that simple.

The Chalice Keycard is hidden behind the locked Chalice labeled doors in the ‘First Contact’. I found my way by hitting the door and entering a small access area that further leads to a dropdown underbelly area. I knew I was on the right path when I got swarmed by many enemies.

I appreciate Bungie guiding me with the indicating markers after smashing the little door and progressing downstairs to the belly of the beast. It’s a pretty simple task now that you know it. You can always use the Ghost (our personal AI companion) to find your way out if you lose the guidance markers.

Which Ship Requires the Chalice Keycard?

The Chalice keycard is required to enter and destroy one of the final ships called the Astaroth Rex II. Other than that, we might find keycards like the War Beasts, which help unlock the War-Beast-labeled doors. Then we have the Conquest/Axes keycard, which works the same way.

Final Words

Destiny 2 Lightfall is full of fun adventures, crafting, and exploration. I’m all into finding more secrets further in the game and exploring what the game has to offer. Bungie has nailed this new expansion of Destiny 2, which is receiving a huge thumbs-up from me in all aspects. There is still a lot to unlock in the game.
