The Long Dark - All Bank Deposit Box Key Locations
Most players who own The Long Dark are currently working their way through the first two episodes of Wintermute, which is the name for the game’s story mode. Episode 1: Do Not Go Gentle, features a few side quests and main quests. Some of these quests will require you to hunt down a Bank Deposit Box Key for each of the four deposit boxes. Of course, you’ll also have to know how to unlock the bank vault to even get to this point.
Bank Deposit Box Key #7
Key #7 is found in a house on the main street in Milton. In fact, if you head southeast from the Milton Credit Union, it’s through the intersection and will be the second house on the right. Once inside, you can find Bank Deposit Box Key #7 in a container under the bed.
Bank Deposit Box Key #13
Key #13 is found at the south end of the river that runs through Milton. Follow the river all the way to the end. Look for a dead body in the snow by a tree. Search the dead body and you’ll discover they key. When you use the key to open the box, you’ll receive the Worn Balaclava, the best clothing item in the game for your head.
Bank Deposit Box Key #15
Key #15 is the hardest to get. You must progress the main quest line to the point where Grey Mother tells you to get it. Even if you search the correct location, it will not be there until Grey Mother asks for it. Once you have the quest, head to the Paradise Meadows Farm. Look for a blue truck parked under a car port. On the front dashboard of the truck will be the Paradise Meadows Farm Key. You cannot get into the house without this key.
Access the main house and head inside. Look for a bedroom with a fireplace and a mantle. On the mantle will be an urn. Search the urn and you’ll find Bank Deposit Box Key #15. Take the key to the Milton Credit Union and open the deposit box to receive Grey Mother’s Safety Deposit Box. Return it to her.
Bank Deposit Box Key #20
Key #20 is found by heading south along the main street in Milton. When the street forks, take the fork that goes to the right and behind the Orca Gas Station. Look for a blue truck parked next to two portable outhouses. Players can snag the key from the floor of the truck. This key will open the box that gives you the Magnifying Glass.
You should have a Bank Deposit Box Key for each deposit box now. Once you’ve opened all four boxes you can progress with the main story in The Long Dark.
