Borderlands 3 Shift Codes are special codes that you can redeem for Golden Keys which open special in-game chests with high-level loot. Getting Shift Codes in Borderlands 3 is a whole different matter, however, because Gearbox drops them via several different avenues that are outside of the game. This forces people to follow different social media accounts and other similar nonsense just to get the codes. With that in mind, in our Shift Codes Borderlands 3 – Golden Keys guide, we’ll show you some of the currently active codes, as well as how to use them to get keys.
Golden Keys Shift Codes in Borderlands 3
There are several Borderlands 3 Shift Codes that you can use to get Golden Keys. Most of them are permanent codes that you can use at any time if you haven’t already. We’ve also added a current Shift Code that unlocks five Golden Keys in Borderlands 2 and which expires in a few days, as well as one code for Halloween Heads that expires in early November, just for kicks.

How to Use Borderlands 3 Shift Codes – How to Get Golden Keys?
To use Shift Codes in Borderlands 3 and get Golden Keys, you can redeem them either through the in-game menu or through your Shift account via shift.gearboxsoftware.com. You can use several different accounts to sign in, such as your 2K account, Steam, Epic, PlayStation, Twitch, Xbox, and the like. We’ve covered this in more detail in our Borderlands 3 Shift Codes & VIP Codes guide.
Once you redeem the appropriate Shift Codes and get the Golden Keys, you can then use said keys to open specific chests in-game, which drop very high-rarity items. What you get from these chests is completely random, but it’s guaranteed to be something really good. In the majority of cases, it’ll be weapons, because this is Borderlands, after all. However, it can also be other useful items.
If you're having trouble with other things in the game, you might want to check out some of the other guides we've written. We've listed the locations of Red Chests, Typhon Logs, Dead Claptrap Parts and Hijack Targets. We've explored the mission choices, like what happens when you side with Holder or Ramsden in On The Blood Path, or when you tell Rhys to keep or lose mustache in Atlas at Last. We've also covered secrets, like the one where you have to open the Holy Broadcast Center locked door.
