Borderlands 3 ‘Diamond Key’ SHiFT Codes

SHiFT Codes for Diamond Skeleton Keys are extremely rare and are only given out on special occasions. You can earn them in-game when you have the Director’s Cut. That way you have a more consistent chance of opening up the Diamond Armory.

Borderlands 3 SHiFT Code FAQ

Do you want to know how to use SHiFT Codes or are you running into any issues, then check out the frequently asked questions below.

What are Borderlands 3 SHiFT Codes?

SHiFT Codes are unique codes that you can redeem for various items. These can be weapons or cosmetic items but one of the most popular items has always been the Golden Keys.

Like the previous installments in the series, Borderlands 3 will also have Golden Keys, Gearbox Software confirmed this on Twitter. I have been archiving SHiFT Codes for various games, here up on the site. I will do the same with Borderlands 3 in this article.

These Borderlands 3 SHiFT Codes are universal and will work on PC, PS4, and Xbox

What are Golden Keys?

Golden Keys are yellow skeleton keys that will let you open up the Golden Chest with the skull on it in Borderlands 3.

You can find the golden chest aboard the spaceship Sanctuary, which will function as a hub town in the game. The Golden Chest will provide you with better loot than your average loot chest. The loot quality in the Golden Chest is often of the ‘Rare’ (purple) tier. This loot quality tier sits just below the legendary tier, that said, there is a small chance that you can find legendary items in the Golden Chest. So if you are looking for awesome loot this is a very good way to collect it.

How to get Golden Keys for Borderlands 3?

Golden Keys are obtained by redeeming SHiFT Codes. These are randomly being provided by the Borderlands channelGearbox Software, or Randy Pitchford on social media. But they also show up during the Borderlands Show. You need to keep an eye out for these as it’s not always clear when they show up. Therefore, it’s possible that you can miss those messages due to the algorithms those platforms use to recommend you specific content. I would recommend following an active community member who keeps track of the SHiFT Codes. I’m posting all of the Borderlands 3 Golden Key Codes in this article. You can bookmark this page and check back from time to time or follow me on social media.

How to redeem SHiFT Codes in Borderlands 3?

There are 3 ways how you can redeem SHiFT Codes for Borderlands 3.

In-Game – In the main menu or if you pause the game. You can find a SHiFT Tab in the Social menu. Enter the SHiFT Code here.

SHiFT Website – On the Gearbox SHiFT Site, you can use the ‘Code Redemption’ feature to claim your rewards.

Borderlands website – On the official Borderlands site, there is a ‘Redeem Code’ option filed under ‘SHiFT’ in the main menu. Here you can use the SHiFT Tile to enter SHiFT Codes.

While the Borderlands website itself is pretty popular for redeeming codes due to the VIP Codes. However, the site sometimes has some hiccups. So it’s possible you are not able to redeem a new code or it mentions you don’t have “platform x” linked to your account.  If that’s the case try the SHiFT site as it’s more stable but redeeming codes in-game is the safest bet.
The Borderlands 3 SHiFT Codes are universal, therefore, there is just 1 code that will work on all platforms. So you won’t have separate Borderlands 3 PS4 SHiFT Codes, Borderlands 3 XBOX SHiFT Codes, or Borderlands 3 PC SHiFT Codes. Redeem an active code and select your preferred platform.

What if a SHiFT Code isn’t working?

SHiFT Codes can expire, however, when they haven’t expired yet sometimes things don’t work as intended. It is possible that the Borderlands or SHiFT sites are having hiccups or a SHiFT code is buggy.

Usually, you can still redeem the SHiFT Code in the game itself. However, there is always the possibility that an individual code has issues with your account. Golden Keys not showing up in your inventory could be a one-time thing.

If you keep encountering problems of some sort, there might be a solution to your problem in the knowledge base or you can submit a support ticket with 2K Games and they will sort it out for you. Try and describe the issue as best as you can, as this will help them resolve your issue a lot faster.

How to use Golden Keys?

If you redeemed your Borderlands 3 SHiFT Code, the Golden Key will be sent to your in-game mailbox. You can open your mail by going into the social menu and then selecting the envelope tab. From this menu, you can collect your Golden Keys or other rewards that you have received. Once you claimed a key, you can travel to Sanctuary 3 to open up the Golden Chest. The Chest is located on the upper deck. Starting from the Fast Travel Point, walk forward passed the Quick Change Station and the Lost Loot Machine. Make a right around the corner and you will find the Golden Chest right ahead of you. Opening the Golden Chest will provide you with rare gear which will be scaled to your current level.
