Borderlanders rejoice! Shift codes are back and better than ever before in version 3 and this time they’re designed to give you access to in-game rewards the likes of which you’ve never seen before.
The Borderlands 3 game now has several additions of Shift codes courtesy of Gearbox, the game creator. All you have to do is go to shift.gearboxsoftware.com and input a 25-digit code (it’s long, we know). In exchange, you’ll get a golden key which gives you access to a wide array of useful gifts including a special chest located in Sanctuary, as well as a gun.
You might also get a new and shiny object of immense rarity that’ll give you a leg-up in the game. It all depends on how lucky you are. The best part is that these free keys are always circulating and easy to find if you know where to look.
Below we have a list of codes that we’ve found. Keep in mind that this list probably barely scratches the surfaces considering just how many possible codes you can find.

How do Shift codes work?
There are mainly two kinds of Shift codes – Cosmetics and Golden keys.
Cosmetics: Borderlands 3 vault hunters can get access to special skins courtesy of certain Shift codes. Previously you could only access these during special events.
Golden keys: Golden keys are very special because they give the player access to a chest that contains a unique item such as a gun.
Suffice to say, there’s always something to look forward to in a Golden key, and the best part is that Shift codes often give you access to a number of them.
It has been compared to playing a free slot machine with the added benefit of getting a free special item.
