Where is the Key in Starfield?

Starfield the Key City Location

The Key is a part of the Kryx System, which is located just above the Porrima Solar System. Once you have found the Kryx System, you must look for a giant Planet called Suvorov. And on the left side of it, you can find the Key. You will eventually gain access to this location during the Rook Meets King (2nd quest of Crimson Fleet Faction) side quest. Here’s how you can begin this quest and get safe access to the Key in Starfield.

How to Get Access to the Key City

You will be welcomed with plenty of fighter ships and turrets after jumping over to the Key City early. So your first step should be to turn hostile NPCs friendly. And for that, you will have to Join the Crimson Fleet Faction. Joining them is the only way to enter the Key City and access all its facilities. To become a part of the Crimson Fleet, you will have to complete the Deep Cover Dive side quest. To start with this mission, follow these steps:

  • Commit a crime on any UC Vanguard-controlled Planet.
  • Cydonia on Mars is one of those places you can visit.
  • Get caught by a UC Vanguard officer and get under their custody.
  • Next, go with the official to meet their Captain, Kibwe Ikande.
  • Interact with the Captain and begin the Deep Dive Cover side quest.

Starfield Rook Meets King Quest

After you have completed it, you will get access to the Rook Meets King quest. In between this quest, you will meet an NPC called Naeva Mora whom you must please by completing her assigned tasks. Doing so will unlock the objective of Traveling to the Key for you in Starfield. This time, you will be welcomed with no turrets and missiles. That said, you have officially gained access to the Key City and you can dock on it any time you want.
