How to Get a Golden Key In Borderlands 3

Playing Borderlands is about one thing: collecting an absurd amount of ridiculous weaponry.

Naturally, a game like this would encourage players to constantly seek new treasures and prizes, and Gearbox themselves are pushing this further with the inclusion of the Shift Code System.

These codes, each 25-digits and able to be entered here, gives the player a unique reward usually in the form of a Golden Key, which can then be used on the massive golden Chest in Sanctuary to gift the player one of the games several trillion guns at random.

Borderlands 3 Golden Keys: Expiration and List of Codes

Shift codes do not last forever. In fact, most disappear within a few hours of going live, though there are those that last longer, around a week or so. As such, it's imperative that a savvy Vault Hunter be quick on the drawn when it comes to using them.

There are a few Shift Codes, a list of which is provided below, that should have no expiration date and can be used whenever. They are as follows:

  • ZFKJ3-TT3BB-JTBJT-T3JJT-JWX9H - 3 Golden Keys
  • Z65B3-JCXX6-5JXW3-3B33J-9SWT6 - 1 Golden Key
