Ranking the best Borderlands games, from Common to Legendary

If you're still playing, then it's all about Borderlands 3 Shift Codes past a certain level (as well as Borderlands 3 VIP codes). These hallowed numbers are the only way to get the Golden Keys that unlock the Golden Chests in Borderlands 3 and all the amazing epic loot they contain. 

Unlike Borderlands 1 and 2, which had Shift codes that lasted years, the Borderlands 3 shift codes are a little more volatile. Most have 24 hour deadlines if not shorter so you need to be quick to catch them. That said there are a few that seem to be lasting longer hopefully there'll be more to claim as time goes on. 

Assuming you have a valid Borderlands 3 Shift Code you'll need to head to the Shift section of in-game menu where you can put in the code to grab the Golden Keys it contains. The keys will then be sent to your mailbox where you'll be able to get them and use them to unlock Golden Chests. We've listed active Borderlands 3 Shift code below that we know of. As well the most recent that you might get lucky with. And, over the page we've got all the codes you can still use with games  in the franchise, including Borderlands, Borderlands 2, and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel.

Here they are; every current Borderlands 3 Shift Code that you can use for free Golden Chest keys right now. These are one-time use keys, however, so it's best to wait until you're a high level Vault Hunter to redeem them, as this will give the loot a longer shelf life. 

  • 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)

There's also some Borderlands 3 Shift codes being tweeted out with some extremely strict time limits expiring in anything from a 90 minutes to five hours. These are the latest, which are always worth trying but don't be surprised if you've missed them.

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. 

Keep an eye out on Randy Pitchford's Twitter account (not something I'd ever hoped I'd have to say) for more Borderlands 3 Shift codes throughout the next few weeks, many of which expire within a few hours of release.

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.
