From The Cycle: Frontier Wiki

Keycards are items that can be collected and used to gain access to special rooms across all maps. All keycards can be found in any jackets, safes, briefcases, and luggage containers. Spawn rates vary based on the rarity of the key, and the difficulty of the area.

A Bright Sands Keycard


Keycards are used to access normally locked locations throughout all of the game's maps, Bright Sands (keycards with yellow stripe),Crescent Falls (keycards with blue stripe), and Tharis Island (keycards with black stripe). Rooms that can be unlocked with keys will display a key icon, in a color matching the key's rarity, on the door's button while it's locked. Unlocking the door changes the button to the usual on/off symbol. Pressing the interact key on the button while having the corresponding keycard in the inventory (backpack or safe pockets) will grant the player access to the room. Using a keycard will lower its durability by one. Once a keycard has no durability, it disappears from the player's inventory.
