Slayer Keys & Slayer Gates in Doom Eternal are secret keys that open special locations, respectively, and completing rooms behind the Slayer Gates rewards you with Empyrean Keys that you use to unlock the Unmaykr and whatever lies beyond. Only select missions in Doom Eternal have Slayer Keys and Gates; if you see the purple Slayer Gate on the map, that means the Slayer Key is somewhere in the level, usually in the vicinity, but really well-hidden. In our Doom Eternal Slayer Key & Gate Locations – Unlock Unmaykr with Empyrean Keys guide, we’re gonna show you exactly where to find both of them, get the Empyrean Keys, and how to use Empyrean Keys to unlock the Unmaykr weapon.
Where to Find Slayer Key & Gate in Exultia Mission 2 – Doom Eternal?
To find the Slayer Key and Slayer Gate in Doom Eternal Mission 2: Exultia, we’ll start right after you’ve passed the gauntlet of flying through flaming chains. When you land on the pentagram platform, jump straight to the climbable wall in front of you. Head to the left from the top of the wall, and climb to the highest point of the cave. Turn around and dash through the yellow pick-up and onto the next platform. You’ll spot another platform straight in front and below you, and that’s where you’ll find the Slayer Key.
As for the Slayer Gate, it’s right below the Slayer Key platform, towards the cliff wall. It is impossible to miss. Go inside and kill anything that moves to earn the Empyrean Key. You can use it the next time you’re in the Fortress of Doom to unlock one of six locks of the Unmaykr.
