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.
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.

How do Shift Codes work?
There are mainly two kinds of Shift Codes – Cosmetics and Golden Keys. We give you a few highlights of each one below:
Borderlands 3 vault hunters can get access to special skins courtesy of certain Shift codes. Previously you could only access these during special events.
To access these shift codes, simply visit the shift.gearboxsoftware.com website and make sure to connect your Epic Games Store account or any relevant console account.
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.
