Borderlands 2: Shift Codes to Obtain Several GoldKeys and How to Use the Shift Codes

Looking for some badass loot in Borderlands 2? Well redeem these Borderlands 2 SHiFT Codes and obtain several Golden Keys. With these keys, you can gain access to the golden chest in Sanctuary. You can find the chest near the fast travel network. The loot inside this golden chest is always of a high rarity. Borderlands 2 SHiFT codes are provided by Gearbox Software and function as loyalty rewards for the Borderlands community. New codes are added frequently. With the release of Borderlands, the Handsome Collection on Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 it became relevant again to post Shift Codes for the game. Both Borderlands 2 and Borderlands the Pre-Sequel feature this special loot system which requires the Golden Keys.

When Gearbox released Borderlands 2 in 2012, it had a novel idea: “SHiFT codes,” which players could find on Borderlands’ forums and social media accounts and enter into the game to unlock rare weapons and cosmetics. Shift codes come in two main varieties:

Borderlands 2: Shift Codes

  • Golden Keys open a special crate in the city of Sanctuary. That crate is guaranteed to serve up a purple rarity item. In a game with billions of randomly generated guns, it was a tantalizing way to skip the RNG and get some great weapons.
  • Special skins are unique skins and heads for each Borderlands 2 character that can only be unlocked with Shift codes.

Today Borderlands 2 is still going strong on Steam, and still occasionally gets golden key shift codes even now that the sequel is out. Check out our new guide to Borderlands 3 Shift codes for unlocks in the new looter shooter. If you’re playing Borderlands 2, these codes will help you load up on rare guns and cool skins. Below we’ve collected tons of Borderlands 2 Shift codes that unlock skins or big piles of keys.

How to use Borderlands 2 SHiFT Codes

For years you could redeem Shift codes at Shift.GearboxSoftware.com, but Gearbox recently removed that functionality. That means to redeem your codes, you need to jump into Borderlands 2 and do a little alt-tabbing.

In-game: In Borderlands 2, go to Main Menu > Extras > Shift Code. Once you’re on that menu, you’ll see a list of previously redeemed Shift codes. Click the Shift Code button at the bottom of that window, then paste in the 25-digit Shift code. Done!

New Borderlands 2 Shift codes for 2022

The most recent Shift Codes for Borderlands 2 Golden Keys are all currently expired. When we find some new temporary or permanent codes for 2020 we’ll keep track of them here.

Scroll down for a running list of permanent cosmetic and golden key codes from past years.

To find new codes regularly, you can follow the official Gearbox and Borderlands social media accounts, but your most efficient destination for Shift codes is this website: Shift.Orcicorn.com. The website automatically monitors and posts updates from both Twitter and Facebook onto one convenient page. If Gearbox has put out a new batch of Shift codes, they’ll be listed here. The (unofficial) Shift Codes Twitter account is also easy to follow.

Keep in mind that Shift codes typically expire after 2-3 weeks, so check in once a week or so if you’re actively looking to stockpile.

Now let’s get to the really good stuff: special Shift codes that can unlock unique items and cosmetics.
