Ranking the best Borderlands games, from Common to Legendary

If you want cool loot you need Borderlands 3 Shift codes. These magical, gift giving numbers crack open the Golden Chests that contain the best gear, and the literally shifting nature of Shift codes means there's always more to grab and use in Borderlands 3. No one really understands the magic behind them: for the new game most of them expire in days, while for previous releases codes that can be decades old will still get you a prize. We've got them all either way with Borderlands 3 Shift codes and codes for older games all here in one place. So check those digits and see what you win.

To claim one of these Borderlands 3 Shift codes, or any of the others, you'll need to head into the game and find the Shift menu. From there you can input the code and and as long as it's valid you'll find Golden Keys will be sent to your Vault Hunter's mailbox. These can then be used to unlock a Golden Chest to reveal the shiny loot inside. 

And, if you're playing any of the older games, we've also got all the Borderlands 1 and 2 Shift codes that still work over the page. If you're after Borderlands 3 VIP codes, we've got that covered as well at that link.

Let's start with the Borderlands 3 Shift Codes that shouldn't expire. These are one-time use keys, however, so it's best to wait until you're a high level Vault Hunter to use the keys they generate, as this will give the loot a longer shelf life.

  • HXKBT-XJ6FR-WBRKJ-J3TTB-RSBHR (1 Golden Key)
  • ZFKJ3-TT6FF-KTFKT-T3JJT-JWX36 (1 Golden Key)
  • Z65B3-JCXX6-5JXW3-3B33J-9SWT6 (1 Golden Key)
  • 9XCBT-WBXFR-5TRWJ-JJJ33-TX53Z (3 Golden Keys)
  • ZRWBJ-ST6XR-CBFKT-JT3J3-FRXJ5 (1 Golden Key)
  • ZFKJ3-TT3BB-JTBJT-T3JJT-JWX9H (3 Golden Keys)
  • CHKB3-FJT9J-SK3K5-T33JJ-95J56 (1 Golden Key)

Next up are the Borderlands 3 Shift codes that are tweeted out, often with some strict time limits that can see them expire in hours or days. Plug them all in and grab the keys fast or lose them forever. 

You can also redeem Shift codes online from Gearbox's website, so long as you're signed into the same profile as the one on which you're playing Borderlands 3. We'll be updating this list with more Borderlands 3 Shift codes as they surface online, so keep this page bookmarked, and return to it whenever you're hungry for some more free loot. 

These codes also apparently work for previous entries in the Borderlands franchise, but if you're looking for more Borderlands 2 Shift codes or for games like The Pre-Sequel, head over to the next page, which has all the known and active codes a Vault Hunter could dream of.
