How do Borderlands 3 Shift Codes and VIP Codes work?

So: what the hell are these Borderlands 3 Shift Codes and VIP Codes that everyone is going mad about?

Let's start with the new Borderlands 3 VIP Codes, because they are indeed new to the series. In effect, VIP Codes are codes (strings of letters and numbers) that you can redeem in one of a couple of different ways in order to earn free rewards. Specifically, redeeming VIP Codes will give you VIP Points, which you can spend on free rewards, including Golden Keys (more on this in a moment).

If you played any of the previous Borderlands titles you'll probably already know what Shift Codes are, because they work in much the same way this time round. In effect: Shift Codes are a different set of codes which you can enter into a special Shift menu within Borderlands 3 in order to earn free rewards - again, most important of which are arguably those sought-after Golden Keys.

Borderlands 3 Shift Codes & Golden Keys - Golden Chests

Borderlands 3 Golden Keys & Golden Chest explained

Golden Keys can be used to repeatedly open the great big Golden Chest aboard Sanctuary, the ship you unlock after what is essentially the first "act" of the Borderlands 3 campaign. Each time you use a Golden Key on the Golden Chest, it will open and unveil a new selection of supposedly very rare and powerful loot. So it could contain exactly the upgrades you've been searching for throughout your travels.

How to redeem Borderlands 3 Shift Codes and VIP Codes

There are a couple of different ways to redeem these Borderlands 3 codes, but the all-in-one best approach is to use the Borderlands VIP site. You'll need a Shift account in order to do any of this, so if you don't have one then simply follow the steps that appear after you click on the "Login/Sign Up" button at the top of the page. It takes less than a minute to sign up.

Once you're logged in, to redeem any code simply hover over "Insiders" at the very top of the page, and click "Redeem Code". Then click on the type of code you'd like to redeem. Shift Codes have their own section, but VIP Codes are split into different sub-categories such as Vault Codes and Creator Codes, so make sure you use the right option for each code.

You can also redeem Borderlands 3 Shift Codes in-game from the main menu. Under "Social" you'll find a "Shift" menu. Once you've logged in there, you can redeem Shift Codes (not VIP Codes though) and also view your reward history at any time.
