How to use Shift Codes and VIP Codes in Borderlands 3 - and what they do
While Shift Codes appeared in the previous Borderlands entry, VIP Codes are all new - and so it's easier to just explain both once again so everybody is absolutely clear on what they do. Here's how it works, broken down nice and simple:
- Shift Codes in Borderlands 3 give you access to free bonus rewards like Golden Keys or even special loot specifically.
- Shift Codes are given out by devleoper Gearbox, and sometimes are time limited and other times are more freely and readily available.
- The primary reward for redeeming a shift code is a Golden Key, which will in turn let you open a special gold chest to get unique loot.
- You redeem Shift Codes from the in-game menu - there's a big old Shift Codes option.
- Once youv'e redeemed the codes, look out for the giant gold chest icon on the mini-map in your hub - there's a gold chest there that can only be opened with the corresponding gold keys.
- You can also redeem Shift Codes through the Borderlands 3 VIP website or through the Gearbox Shift Portal too - just log in, then your rewards will be with you on your next in-game sign in.
- VIP Codes in Borderlands 3 earn you special points that can then be spent on loot items to use in game.
- VIP Codes are earned through activities online, with Gearbox issuing them to people who do certain things like sign up for their newsletter and the like. However, you only need to know a code to redeem it - and we're going to have a list below.
- VIP Codes are redeemed specifically via the Borderlands 3 VIP website - you have to log in, then hit the 'Insiders' section and then finally 'Redeem Code'. You can also browse the purchaseable wares with your VIP points in this section.
