    I've noticed a bunch of locked chests in this scene. Killed all the brats, but don't have a key to open any of them. Any insight? Searched through the scene. What did i miss?

    Hmmm, if its anything like the actual Krampus encounter in the main territory, the brats have a CHANCE to drop a key. Anyone else? This could be a bug, but I suspect it takes the same tech from the main seen on key drop rate.

    thats how it works - I got a key a day or 2 ago, so it’s working - I *was* going to suggest the other day upping the drop rate on the keys , especially with Krampus dormant, but I forgot - so .. voila!

    You need to defeat alot. I was often there last weeks. Keys drop not frequently. Sometimes I have them in a very short time, sometimes I am happy to get one ;)
    I recommend to use a key immediately after you got one. Don't know exactly, but I assume, the droprate may be less, if you have keys in your inventory ...

    And good to know:
    You can loot all chests once. If you have done with all, leave the scene and come back (well, if you have more time to do so ;)) Chests will be filled again ...

    Yeah the Naughty Brats have a *chance* to drop a brittle key. The key will be destroyed when you unlock a chest with the key. Also you can only have 1 key on you at a time.

    You probably have one of the keys in your inventory already. Of note the key is a yellow colored quest item.

    Make sure you do NOT have Hide Quest Items option selected on your inventory window.

    Great insight folks. Thanks! Might want to have the % chance upped for a drop since you can only open one chest with one key and there's about 6 chests to get.

    From my observations the key drop rate is actually pretty good (on average). It just won’t be every single time.

    Good info in this thread!

    I'll also mention that the naughty brat key from the Naughty Brat encounter is the same as the naughty brat key from the East Sanctus Forest. A key found on one can open a chest found in the other.
