Getting more keys is important to unlock additional areas and brain teasers that unlock the gates to various boosts and “secret” plants. In this key getting guide, we will discuss the various ways that you can get the keys in each of the world as well as the best maps to farm them. With this guide, we will teach you how to obtain the extra keys.
Farming for More PvZ2 Keys
The best way to farm keys is by killing higher level enemies in each of the worlds. In general, you can keep you playing the last level of each world as a quick way to do keys farming. The last stage usually features special delivery type of stage where you do not have to setup, and the enemies usually come in droves.
However, there are more stages where you can get more keys easily. The secret to get your Plants versus Zombies 2 keys lie in the “last stand” stages. Although we have provided the easiest way to farm for keys, it’s still farming and may take time. We estimate that you are able to get 1 key for every 4 attempts on average based on our own keys grinding sessions.
It should be noted that this the methods mentioned in this post is also the best way to farm for coins as well. Now we will list out the various “key farms” that you can take advantage of in the game. With these strategies, we are able to unlock all of our gated bonuses without spending any money with one afternoon of play (while writing these guides).
Ancient Egypt Keys Farm
The best stage to farm for keys is Ancient Egypt Last Stand level 1. You can setup two rows of bloomerang and 1 row of wall-nut. And you can leave the stage pretty much hands free to pick up any keys that drop. You may still have to be semi afk to buff up your wall-nuts with plant foods.
Pirate Seas Keys Farm
To farm the pirate seas keys, you will head out to Pirate Seas Last Stand level 3. Last stand 3 only has two types of enemies, the swashbuckler zombie and the imp cannon. You can easily play this stage “hands free” by setting up an entire board of spikeweeds.
You can farm the keys while being semi afk, let all the imp cannon explodes on themselves while you collect the keys.
Wild West Key Farm
The place stage to farm keys in Wild West chapter is through Wild West Last Stand Level 3. The reason is that the previous two stages require too much micromanagement to make sure that you move your rail road carts around. In stage 3, you really only have to control one to take down the pianists that are getting too close.
Yeti Key Farming
Always head over to the yeti “events” whenever they appear in the worlds. The yetis have a really high chance of dropping the items. The most important factor is to be able to kill yetis faster and efficiently. Never let yetis escape from your hunt.
Our last comment is that you should only start farming for the keys after you have gotten three star mastery in all the stages of the world. Most of the stages can be beat without the additional boosts from the locked gate stages.
Now if you really do not want to farm for the extra keys, you can always purchase the gate unlock with cash. After all, the developer has made it into a “free to play” game. Consider it as a tribute to the game developer. Although, if you have limited budget, we would really recommend to spend your money on the premium cash plants instead of unlocking the gates.
It isn’t hard to do simple key farming while watching tv or studying after all.
