How To Use Portkeys In Harry Potter: Wizards Unite

Portkeys and Portmanteaus open up a rewarding AR minigame inside of Harry Potter: Wizards Unite. However, the game isn't entirely clear how these items work, which can lead to some frustration as you waste resources by not getting the most out of them. Never fear: here's what you need to know.

First, you need to find some Portmanteaus. These are pyramid-shaped items that you can find on the world map, just like potion ingredients. They function like eggs in Pokemon Go: you have to insert a key and then walk a certain distance (2KM, 5KM, or 10KM) for it to open.

Pay attention to your keys; you have one gold key that can be used repeatedly, and you can find silver keys which can only be used once. In general, you should be using your gold key for the shorter distance Portmanteaus and silver keys for the ones that take longer.

Once a Portmanteau opens, you will have access to the Portkey minigame. You will need to use your phone's AR capabilities in a decent-sized open space.

Set the Portkey down, and a portal will open that you can see through your phone's screen. You will need to physically walk through it, then complete whatever objective you are given. You will generally be tasked with finding items by spotting them through your phone; each one will net you rewards like XP, fragments, and potion ingredients.

You can hold up to eight Portmanteaus at a time, so think through the best way to open them to maximize your benefits. You can also drink a Baruffio's Brain Elixir before opening them to double the rewards!
