The blue key cards in Payday 3 are one of the most important items you can find in almost all heists. These key cards give you access to important locations, such as security rooms that monitor all the cameras in the place or even key locations that you can’t complete the heist without. Here is a guide that shows you the locations where each Blue Card is found in each Payday 3 Heist.
Because of how Payday 3 randomizes key aspects in heists, you won’t always find the blue card in the same place. They are usually located behind the security guards patrolling the place and you can steal from behind. Be careful not to steal the blue key cards when you see (Watched), as it will alert people nearby.
No Rest for the Wicked Blue Key Card Location
The blue key card in No Rest for the Wicked is on the security guard patrolling the first floor or the one patrolling the second floor. There are two guards roaming the main hallways of the SCB bank on each floor. One of them has the blue card, which gives you access to the security room on the second floor, and the other has the red card.
Dirty ice blue blue key card location
The blue key card from the Dirty Ice heist is on the security guard patrolling under the stairs in the alley next to the jewelry store. If you approach from behind, you will find a ladder on your left with a fence in front. There is a guard patrolling under that staircase who will eventually move to the main hallway of the jewelry store. He carries the blue access card with him.
Rock the Cradle Blue Keycard Location
The blue key card in the Rock the Cradle heist is on the doorman in front of the VIP club. Go to the other end of the first floor at the Neon Cradle nightclub. Next to the bar there are two bouncers who won’t let you in without a pass. The doorman on the right has the blue key card.
Unlike previous heists, you cannot obtain this key card while traveling as the bouncer is accompanied and watched by his friend. You’ll first have to distract the doorman by reconfiguring the speakers and taking him to a more secluded location, or authenticate the VIP passes and simply take the key card once he lets you in.

Gold & Sharke Blue Keycard Location
The blue key card at Gold & Sharke may be on the back of the manager patrolling the second floor of the bank or on the desk of an office on the same floor. Unlike other blue key cards, this one is special because it is on a non-security guard employee or on the desk, something other heists don’t have.
The problem with accessing this blue card is that the second floor is prohibited. You are also blocked when you enter the Gold & Sharke bank because you must first obtain the red card at the assistant manager’s office. There is also another problem with obtaining this blue key card if it appears on the manager’s belt because he will run out of the premises, preventing you from obtaining it.
99 Box Blue Keycard Location
The blue key card in 99 Boxes is located on the back of the protector in the cargo area. Interestingly, the room that requires the blue card is unlocked, so you can enter without having it.
Tap sky blue key card location
Getting to the blue card in Touch the Sky is a little difficult since it’s on the back of a guard who loves to move around the building. The security room you unlock is either upstairs or downstairs, near the elevator. One guard will have the blue key card and the other will have the phone that you need to hack to open the master bedroom.
