These keys give you the best loot and easiest time to complete quests.

The best keys on the coast in Escape from Tarkov | TGG (1)

Shoreline is a map that probably contains the greatest variety of good clues. It has good budget keys to expensive rarities. If you've ever wondered how to take your Escape from Tarkov knowledge to the next level, we'll show you the best Shoreline keys. Before we begin, all keys can be found in jackets around Tarkov and in bags and pouches on Scavs.


It was a bit tricky picking the best key in Shoreline, it depends on where you pop up, flea market prices, in-game events, and what you're looking for. While some of our top picks are good in almost every scenario, they're only tradable based on meta and whatnot.

Key for room 301 in the west wing

This is currently the key to making more consistent money with Shoreline. This key costs around 200,000 rubles at the flea market, which is expensive. But even at that price, you can potentially get all your money back in one run. Room 301 has loose loot spawn, graphics card spawn, and LED X spawn on the white box. However, the problem is that you can get into room 304 via the balcony, effectively making this key open 2 rooms.

The best keys on the coast in Escape from Tarkov | TGG (2)

Room 304 has a weapon crate, two PCs, more loose loot, two video card spawns, one SV-98 spawn, and two LED X spawns. Usually it's a lot of high quality spawns, keys are so expensive when needed for a quest, but this key isn't and we can't recommend it more highly. However, the LED-X found in Raids are required for many quests, and these rooms make very good spawns, not to mention everything else about this key. Another thing about this key is that it has a rare but static spawn on the yellow bus next to the collapsed tunnel. The key appears on a seat in the middle of the bus.


Key to room 222/226 in the east wing

These are two separate keys, but they are basically the same as you can enter one room from the other. Much like our number one key, you basically get a two-for-one deal with both. In room 222 there is a weapon crate, a weapon rack, a grenade crate, a tool chest, a rare item spawn, three weapon spawns including the RSASS, and a physical bitcoin spawn. The other weapons featured are the Mp5 and the SV-98, but the RSASS is one of the rarer weapons in the game and is required for Gunsmith Part 6. Room 226 has a gun crate, a gun cabinet, multiple LED X spawns, an MP-153 spawn, and loose loot like money or food.

All this together makes these keys great for loot runs, the best part is that they aren't even expensive keys, you can get them for around 50k or 60k at the flea market. Key 226 has a static spawn in room 218 on a shelf and on the second floor of the east wing in a key shelf near the middle staircase.

Spa office key with blue ribbon

Also known as the Sanitar Tape Key, this is an essential key when you're looking for LED-X as it's the most trusted spawn of them in the game and also the most trusted East Wing Key. Also, this room has a PC, medical supplies, rare loose loot like bitcoins, a plastic case, and a GPU spawn.

The best keys on the coast in Escape from Tarkov | TGG (4)

This key is also needed for a quest, but it's not very expensive, you can get it for about 70,000 at the flea market. This key has a higher chance of spawning in the Sanitary itself, in addition to Jackets and Scavs. However, a major disadvantage of this key is that if you get a spawn other than the next two, chances are someone has already searched the entire room within a minute of the raid, or someone is camping somewhere nearby. So be careful with that.


Room 203/205 in the west wing

Like some of the other keys on this list, these two keys are basically the same. This is one of the best West Wing keys. In both rooms we have 2 medicine kits, a medbag, two LEDX spawns, a weapon spawn, loose loot, a weapon box, two toolboxes, a gym bag, a GPU spawn and most importantly there is a red card spawn in room 203 If you don't know what a red card is, read our article on the red cardrarest items in Escape from Tarkov. Also, these wrenches are really cheap, making them a decent option.

Room west wing 218/221/222 key

As you might have guessed, a single key gives you access to multiple rooms via the balcony. Among them are many weapon spawns, medical supplies, medicine pouches, weapon crates, and high-value loot items. However, in room 218 there is a RSASS spawn and the red card spawn.

The best keys on the coast in Escape from Tarkov | TGG (5)

While two of these spawns are extremely rare, they are great items to get when you get them. So there's no harm in checking to see if these keys go for around 50,000 at the flea market, and you'll likely get that money back in a single run. . Very good keys for how little they cost.


Universal key for the utility room of the health resort

Similar to our other key related items such as:best keys in the lighthouse, jthe best keys in reserve, we like to add reliable budget keys that are not too controversial. This key is one of them basically, this key opens the resort storage rooms. The three rooms together have two industrial shelves, a key rack, a jacket, rare loot, and access to room 328 in the east wing via the balcony, making this key a four-for-one deal.

Also, room 328 has a gym bag, an LEDX spawn, a GPU spawn, two electronic spawns, loose loot, and a weapon spawn. In short, this room is pretty good if you need electronics and the utility key is excellent value for being able to access so many rooms with it.

West Wing Room 216 Key

This is a bit of a joker as it is a really expensive key going for around 300,000 at the flea market. The room has two weapon crates, two grenade crates, a weapon spawn, loose loot, and an LEDX spawn. It's a good key but it's not 300k good as there are much better and more valuable keys out there.

The best keys on the coast in Escape from Tarkov | TGG (6)

The reason it's on this list is because it's also required for a quest and everything that combines with the loot makes it a necessary key if you want to progress quickly or if you're after the Kappa container search. If you like this article so far, read itbest excursions on the coast.


West wing room 220 key

This is the most average key on this list, since it doesn't open multiple rooms or have a super rare spawn, it's really good at what it does. For around 80,000 you can get three weapon boxes and valuable loose loot such as bitcoins, gold chains, skull rings etc. at the flea market.


There are a few keys that we just wanted to mention as they are nice keys but too expensive, too impractical or just a little inferior to the keys on this list. The following keys are:
