If you’ve been playing Borderlands 3, you’ve probably been hearing a lot of talk about Shift Codes. These are limited-time codes you can use to potentially earn Golden Keys that unlock the Golden Chest in Sanctuary for high-tier loot. They can also net you unique cosmetics for your character.
Shift Codes are often distributed via Gearbox’s newsletters or social media accounts. During the game’s launch weekend, Gearbox’s Randy Pitchford shared a Shift Code on Twitter. This code has since expired, but there are still several active Shift codes making the rounds.
Below you can find a list of every working Shift Code so far and its respective prize. We recommend redeeming them as soon as possible, as they’re likely to expire sooner than later. Be sure to check back often as we’ll be updating this feature with even more Shift Codes.
- ZFKJ3-TT3BB-JTBJT-T3JJT-JWX9H (3 Golden Keys)
- HXKBT-XJ6FR-WBRKJ-J3TTB-RSBHR (1 Golden Key)
- ZFKJ3-TT6FF-KTFKT-T3JJT-JWX36 (1 Golden Key)

- 9XCBT-WBXFR-5TRWJ-JJJ33-TX53Z (1 Golden Key)
- ZRWBJ-ST6XR-CBFKT-JT3J3-FRXJ5 (1 Golden Key)
To redeem a code, go to input it in the Shift Codes section in the game’s social menu. You can also login to the Borderlands VIP site to redeem Shift Codes. You can then acquire what you’ve unlocked from your mailbox one tab over. While it’s not easy to predict when Gearbox will share new Shift Codes, we’ll likely get more soon during the upcoming free Halloween-themed Bloody Harvest event scheduled for this October.

In our Borderlands 3 review, author Jordan Ramee gave the game an 8/10 and said, “Borderlands 3 has a few stumbling blocks when it comes to bosses, but these fights are overshadowed by the game’s rewarding gunplay and over-the-top humor. The game’s character-driven narrative acts as a satisfying finale for the loot-shooter franchise, and the new mechanics and features–especially the reworked skill trees and weapon manufacturer effects–give you plenty of agency in how you want to play through it. If you’ve never been a fan of the franchise, it’s unlikely Borderlands 3 does enough things differently to change your mind, as the game best excels at continuing what the series has always done: deliver a humorous tall tale of misfits looting and shooting their way to heroism.”
