In Borderlands 3, one of the most reliable ways for obtaining top-tier loot involves Shift Codes--the primary means of obtaining the Golden Keys used to unlock the Golden Chest on Sanctuary. Shift Codes can also potentially net you unique cosmetics, so it's in your interest to take advantage of each one you can get your hands on, especially those that are only live for a limited-time.

Shift Codes are often distributed via Gearbox's newsletters or social media accounts. In addition to a regular stream of Shift Codes shared on social media, Gearbox game director gave out one code on the Borderlands Show, a monthly stream with updates on the game. While many of the Shift Codes shared since Borderlands 3's launch have expired, there are still a number of them that work, including those from the game's premium edition.

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.

How To Redeem A Shift Code In Borderlands 3

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."
