The Doom Eternal The Ancient Gods Slayer Gate key locations are little puzzles within themselves. Even though you can see them on the map, they can be still hard to actually get to. Here’s how to get both Slayer keys in The Ancient Gods Part 1. This won’t get you every rune so you can check out this guide for help on how to find all of them.
Doom Eternal The Ancient Gods Slayer Gate Key Locations | UAC Atlantica Facility
The first Slayer Gate key is a little bit of a ways into the first level.
UAC Atlantica Facility Slayer Gate Key location #1
Go into the room behind the tentacles
After blowing up the facility, you will eventually get to this long hallway with a bunch of tentacles. Go to the room at the end of the hallway behind the armor piece.
Dash through the lasers and get to this room
Once you’re at that room, dash through the lasers when they are off and kill the Cyberdemon in the next room. You will see the key behind a grate here. Continue on into the room with the device that fills out your map. Stay in that room.
Jump on the top of the fence and use the monkey bars
This is going to be tricky. You need to jump on top of the fence or the containers next to it and then hop off the side. You need to use the monkey bars and the hang a hard right and dash into the breakable vent. Watch out for the turret. Here’s another closer picture:

The second and final Slayer Key is right at the start of the third level.

Punch down the first green tree
You will do this a few times in this level but punch down the green tree and use it as a ledge to get to the higher area.
Jump to the ledge above you
Once you get above the ledge with the tree, you’ll need to go one level higher. Jump up to the ledge in the picture that the arrow is pointing to.
Dash jump to the ledge across the way
After you’ve gotten some altitude, you will have to dash jump to the high ledge that in the direction from whence you came.
Jump across a small gap for the key
The last key is right there for you. It’s just a short jump away. The actual gate is farther in the level near the part where you need to use the monkey bars, as you can see in this picture of the map:
Complete that Slayer Gate and get your final rune.
