Ranking the best Borderlands games, from Common to Legendary

Everyone's looking for new Borderlands 3 Shift Codes (as well as Borderlands 3 VIP codes). They're essential if you want the Golden Keys that unlock loot filled Golden Chests in Borderlands 3, filled with Epic loot. However, unlike the previous games where Shift codes could be valid for years, Borderlands 3's codes are mostly expiring in a matter of hours. Some seem to last longer, but for the most part you need to be pretty quick to catch a break. 

To redeem the Borderlands 3 Shift codes we have so far you'll need to head to the Shift section of the menu in-game and input the code, which will then send Golden Keys to your mailbox. So far, there are limited Borderlands 3 Shift codes being tweeted out by Gearbox and Sony developers online, and several sadly tagged with a 24 hour expiry date. But don't worry - we've listed every active Borderlands 3 Shift code below, and the most recent, alongside all the codes still available for use in previous titles 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. 

  • 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)

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.
