My 150+ Golden Keys obtained with Shift Codes
Borderlands 2 PS4 Golden Key Shift Codes eBay Guide
** First of all eBay please note that these ARE NOT Cheat Codes and these Shift Codes are available online Free, so I am also making them available to eBay customers Free and the only difference is that I have done all the hours and hours of hard work seeing which ones are still valid and have not expired! **
Hi fellow gamers, I recently bought Borderlands the Handsome Collection for my PS4 after having played (and loved) Borderlands 2 on my PS3.
As I was Level 55 with Axton on my second play through of Borderlands 2 on my PS3 I decided to use the 'cross-save' feature to my PS4 rather than starting a brand new game (it takes soooooo long to level up at the higher levels and I am not one to use cheats to reach there quicker!).
The only things that didn't transfer from my PS3 to my PS4 was the four items I had saved in Claptrap's Secret Stash which I had planned to use with a different character at a later stage.
You also have to sign up to the Playstation Network (Free to sign up) to use the 'cross save' feature which isn't all bad as I also got some extra items to use in my workshop in Fallout 4 (plus Survival Mode) although I haven't ventured into actual online play itself yet.
I hadn't bothered with using Shift Codes before to unlock the Golden Chest in Sanctuary on my PS3, but thought I would give them a go on my PS4 and I am so glad that I did.
These Borderlands 2 Shift Codes unlock Golden keys, Guns, Heads, Skins, Class Mods etc and by using these codes I have unlocked over 150+ Golden Keys plus loads of other goodies!
One of them unlocked a Blue Rapid Fire Moxxi Shotgun but I don't remember which Shift Code it was and I wish I had written down what each one did!
These items are either Blue level or always Purple level (from the Sanctuary Golden Chest) and I have used a cheeky few keys already and got Purple Shields, Purple Sniper Rifles, Purple Pistols and Purple Class Mods.
When you use a Golden Key whatever you collect from the Golden Chest is the same level as you are, so if you are a low level then save most of them for later on for when you reach the Ultimate Vault Hunter play through (or at least your second play through (Vault Hunter Mode) with the same character).
But the choice is entirely yours as to when you use them and I am only giving advise as a gamer with over 30 years of experience (I first played a Tennis game like 'Pong' in the 1970's on the Intellivision System but don't recall it's exact name).
Apparantly you can only have a maximum of 255 Golden Keys per Shift Account, so please make sure that you don't use all of them as Borderlands 3 is currently in development (yipee) and I am sure you will want to keep some Golden Keys aside for when this game comes out!
All you need it a valid email address and a password to sign up for a Shift Account it is as easy as that and is totally free!
New Shift Codes are occasionally available Free on Twitter and Facebook for both Borderlands 2 and Borderlands the Pre-Sequel.
Please note that I cannot guarantee that all of these Shift Codes will work 100% but the sooner that you try them out after this guide is published, then the higher the chance of them working.
Remember that you do not have to use the Golden Keys straight away, but if you are curious like me you will no doubt use a few.
If it is items you don't want or won't use then sell them at one of Marcus's vending machines as sometimes you might get things like Class Mods for a different character or a weapon or shield that isn't to your liking.
If you are unsure then store them in the bank (or even Claptrap's Secret Stash) because if you sell them and exit the level you can't buy them back and they are lost forever!
The easiest way I would suggest that you use my guide is to copy and paste the Shift Codes onto something that you can print out.
You can then tick or strike a line through the ones that you have used or ones that may have expired (hopefully not in the second case).
I believe that these Borderlands 2 Shift Codes will also work for the PS3 and PS Vita but I cannot confirm this as I have only used them on my PS4.
These Borderlands 2 Shift Codes do not have to be entered in Capital Letters (on the PS4) and I used Lower Case Letters myself to enter all of these Shift Codes and have listed them in Capital Letters so that they are easier for you to read.
Please make sure that you enter the codes correctly as the letter 'S' and number '5' are very similar as are the letters 'X' and 'K'.
If you had already used a Borderlands 2 Shift Code before it will not count so no need to worry about this and will state that it has already been redeemed.
The very first code does not have an expiry date as far as I know and is for 20 Golden Keys.
The second Shift Code is for 25 Golden Keys and probably will expire at some point as will most of them.
The other Shift Codes for Golden Keys are usually for 3 or 5 of them (it was sometimes for just one Golden Key on Borderlands the Pre-Sequel but Borderlands 2 is the better
game in my opinion and at least you don't have to worry about running out of air!).
The following list is all of the Borderlands 2 Shift Codes that have worked for me (out of loads I've tried going way back to 18th Feb 2014) and have been used between the dates of 11th May 2016 and 15th May 2016:
If any of the above codes have expired then please contact me via eBay messages stating the full 25 character code and I can then remove it from this list.
It will save others time from having to input expired codes.
Many thanks and much appreciated and happy gaming.
