Once you have successfully created and linked your SHiFT account, you can then redeem SHiFT Codes for Golden Keys in a variety of ways.
Head to the SHiFT Account Rewards Page to quickly copy and paste the codes listed at the top of the page into the Code Redemption section, and be sure to select the correct platform for your code – you’ll then be alerted to how many Golden Keys will be added to your account.
You can also do this directly in the game at any time by going to the menu and entering the Social Tab, and heading to the SHiFT section to enter the codes through the game itself.
How to Redeem and Use Golden Keys
Once you have redeemed the SHiFT Codes to obtain a certain amount of Golden Keys, you will find the special Golden Chest aboard the Sanctuary 3 spaceship, which you can start doing once you leave Pandora for the first time at the end of the 4th mission.
Each Golden Key has a one time use to open the Golden Chest to reward you with a random assortment of high-tier weapons and items. They will always be Uncommon rarity or above, and will always be at your current level when opening the chest.
After you use the Golden Key to collect the loot, the chest will re-seal, and you can use additional keys to keep opening the chest for more loot. Use those keys carefully! Since Golden Keys are limited, you’ll want to use them when you really need a good weapon, and your current stock just isn’t cutting it.
Additional SHiFT Code and Golden Key Sources
Gearbox and its employees often share SHiFT codes on social media. All users can use these same codes, but after a certain time period, they will expire. These codes are independent of your character saves, so one code will work in each individual save.
