How to Get Encrypted Cache Key in Destiny 2 Warmind?

In order to get an Encrypted Cache Key in the Warmind DLC, you first have to complete the main story campaign. Once that’s done, start participating in the following events: Heroic Strikes and Adventures, Nightfall Strikes, and the Raid or Raid Lairs. Completing each of these can net you Rasputin Key Fragments. Once a week, you can hand in the Rasputin Key Fragments to Ana Bray, and she’ll grant you an Encrypted Cache Key. You’ll need seven Rasputin Key Fragments to earn a Cache Key.

How to Decrypt Encrypted Cache Key in Warmind DLC & Where to Use?

To decrypt the Encrypted Cache Key, you have to participate in Escalation Protocols. This can prove to be a challenge, since you’ll have to complete around seven or so levels in Escalation Protocols in order to receive the Decrypted Cache Key. In short, just keep doing Escalation Protocols until the game notifies you that you got the decrypted key.

As for where to use the Decrypted Cache Key, you first have to defeat the final boss of the Escalation Protocol, and good luck with that. Once you manage to kill the final boss, it will drop a loot chest, plus some extra rewards that are exclusive. The Decrypted Cache Key is necessary to open the loot chest that the final boss drops. So, you don’t need to hand in the key anywhere special, but you won’t be able to open that final loot chest without the Destiny 2 Decrypted Cache Key. The Escalation Protocol bosses are on a weekly rotation, so hopefully, the Encrypted and Decrypted keys will carry over from week to week.

      The items you get are entitled Yuga, it was a slog to do it especially as the activating point at the drift ‘checkpoint’ glitched 3 times in a row at escalation 5, it just wouldn’t activate. Also you get some unique shaders but be aware they erupt from final boss, like the strike tokens from a heroic strike chest, and are the same ‘pyramid’ shape, but purple and not green. So you may have to run around the area to get them. Although if you go into orbit they may go to the postmaster…maybe

        If you miss the shaders they do go to the postmaster, just went there and had a few waiting for me.
