How To Get Golden Keys In Borderlands 3
Found the Golden Chest on Sanctuary in Borderlands 3, but how to open it? This guide explains How To Get Golden Keys In Borderlands 3 so you can open the Golden Chest and gather the various powerful item and weapon rewards inside.

As with previous Borderlands games, Borderlands 3 features rare Golden Chests that contain some of the games most powerful and valuable rewards. However, Golden Chests are very difficult to open as you require a Golden Key – which cannot typically be found in-game via traditional means.

How To Get Golden Keys In Borderlands 3

Currently you are able to get yourself 3 Golden Keys using a SHiFT code that was revealed in the build up to release. Follow the steps below to redeem your SHiFT codes so you can get a Golden Key to open the Golden Chest.

  • Create an account or login on the OLD Gearbox Website
  • Once you are logged in or registered, make sure to sync it with your platform
  • Select rewards and look for the Code Redemption box
  • Enter the code: ZFKJ3-TT3BB-JTBJT-T3JJT-JWX9H

Once done, if successful, you will receive the Golden Keys via in-game mail, the same place to find the DLC items.

Blaine "Captain Camper" Smith is one of the original founders of Gamers Heroes. Now operating under the guise of Editor-in-Chief (purely because we felt the position was needed for public relations purposes), he's tasked with a lot of the kind of jobs that would put you to sleep at your desk. When he's not catching some Zs, you'll likely find him arguing points he knows nothing about, playing the latest rogue-like he'll never complete, or breaking something on the website that never needed fixing.
