Borderlands 3: How to Get Golden Keys

Get Golden Keys to Open a Chest with Powerful Rewards.

by William Schwartz


Golden Keys allow you to open the Golden Chest on Sanctuary.  To get Golden Keys you’re going to have to do one of two things.  You’ll either need to head to the Shift Website to redeem codes or head into the Shift section of Borderlands 3 to enter codes that will give you golden keys.

Borderlands 3 Shift Codes – Golden Key Code


You can enter the codes above on the Shift Website or through the game’s Social Menu at the home screen.  The code above will give you three golden keys which can be used in the gold chest on Sanctuary.  Check back on this page later for more Borderlands 3 golden key codes.

How to Get Golden Keys Once You’ve Redeemed


To get your gold key rewards you’ll actually need to go into the in-game mail system  Pause the game, go into the Social Menu, and then tab over to the mail icon.  In this mailbox you will find a reward that you need to accept to get your keys.  You will need to accept this for as many times as you have keys.  If you have three keys you will need to accept this reward three times and you will see the keys in your inventory at that point.

Where to use the Golden Keys


Once you have golden keys, you can then head to the gold chest on Sanctuary.  In the chest you will find high-end items like purples and blue guns, shields, grenades and more.  If you can’t find the chest, you can pull up the map while on Sanctuary and look for the gold chest icon.  The box is located on the second floor of the ship.

Get More Golden Keys

It sounds like there will be plenty more ways to get Golden Keys in Borderlands 3.  There are already promotions on the Shift website that will reward you with more Golden Keys.  Make sure you log in on the website and look at the offers for points and keys to get more golden keys to use.
