Raptor key detail.png

The raptor key is an item used to unlock the Raptor's chest of slaying in War's Retreat. Each of the monsters that drop the key pieces require level 96 Slayer to kill, in addition to being on the respective Slayer task in order for them to drop. Each part has a 1/256[1][2] chance of being dropped.

The key is made of four parts:

Once all four key parts are obtained, simply use one of the pieces on another. This will create the key, with a dialogue message stating "You combine the four key parts into a reward key for the Raptor's chest of slaying." Players can then open the Raptor's chest of slaying for various rewards.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Following the Patch Notes on 6 February 2017, Raptor key pieces were made approximately 150% more common, and the rewards contained within the Raptor chest were halved to compensate for the increased drop chance.[3]
  • Originally, key parts 1 and 2, from wyverns and ripper demons, respectively, had the lower drop rate of 1/512. This was changed to match the rates of the other parts as part of the patch on 16 April 2018.
