Lock Box at ERC

Key codes are one of the resources used in Defiance, alongside Scrip and Bits. Their main purpose is to unlock Lock Boxes in any base location.


Players can obtain keycodes via:

  • Completing challenges, such as Hotshots, Rampages, and Time Trials.
  • Completing missions.
  • Completing random encounters.
  • Purchasing with Scrip and Ark Salvage at the Lock Box.


Players can use the key codes to open Lock Boxes containing 3 random weapons with the rarity corresponding to the opened box's rarity. For example, a Tier 2 lock box will give the player green items, Tier 3 would give blue weapons, and T4 will give purple.

Key code capacity[]

By default the user starts with 50 key code capacity limit. Players can buy a 25 Keycode cap upgrade from the Defiance Store for 400 bits.
