What is the Rusted Key in Diablo 4?

The Rusted Key is an area item, bound to the Belfry Zakara dungeon in Diablo 4. It is needed to open a locked door in order to progress to fight the boss in the final area of the dungeon.

However, there is a common bug where the key drops after the completion of the dungeon and remains in your inventory indefinitely.

Some Reddit users are seeing the Rusted Key drop within the Belfry Dungeon itself, while others are seeing it spawn in Kyovoshad when they change World Tiers.

This is confusing players, as many are not sure what to do with the Rusted Key in Diablo 4.

How to Use the Rusted Key in Diablo 4?

You need to use the Rusted Key to access the final boss room of the Belfry Zakara dungeon.

Its primary purpose is to unlock the final door needed to access the boss arena in the Belfry Zakara dungeon. It can be found by defeating the Anchorbound Chaplain Elite enemy.

However, many players have reported that they still have the Rusted Key in their inventory after defeating the final boss and completing the dungeon.

You can find the Rusted Key in the Belfry Zakara dungeon, which is located in the Rotspill Delta area of the Hawezar region.
