Ranking the best Borderlands games, from Common to Legendary

Borderlands 3 Shift codes have been around since the game launched but with the recent release of the Bounty of Blood DLC, players are keen to get their hands on more sweet loot from the Golden Chest. There are a lot of Shift codes for previous games, but we've got all of the ones for Borderlands 3 right here.

Borderlands 3 Shift codes generally expire quickly so you'll want to check in regularly as new time limited ones appear all the time. That said there are some that last longer (the previous games had Shift codes that lasted years, and some never ran out). Some old codes have also been reactivated occasionally as well, just to make it all extra confusing. As a rule though, use a code as soon as you get it, and plug in anything you find as it's the only way to find out if it'll work or not. 

To claim a Borderlands 3 Shift code 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.
