For many players, one of the most exciting aspects of Borderlands 3 will be adding new and powerful gear to their inventories. Indeed, there are a myriad of ways to earn loot in Gearbox Software's highly anticipated new shooter, and one way is to use Borderlands 3 Shift Codes to obtain Golden Keys. While there are not many BL3 Shift Codes currently available, the Borderlands 3 glitch outlined here will give players access to infinite Golden Keys and as much powerful loot as they desire.
To note, the Borderlands 3 exploit detailed in this guide has been verified as functional on a PS4 version of the game, and it requires a USB storage device to execute. That said, following a similar process on Xbox One and PC should yield the same results.
How to Do the Infinite Golden Key Glitch in Borderlands 3
The Borderlands 3 unlimited Golden Key glitch begins by navigating to the Social tab through the game's main menu. From here, players should access the Shift Code tab and submit a BL3 Shift Code in the designated space. Now, players can open their Borderlands 3 mailbox and redeem five BL3 Golden Keys.
With the Borderlands 3 Golden Keys collected, players will need to make a backup save. This process is similar to the one used for duping weapons in Borderlands 3, and it begins by quitting the game and closing the application. Players should then navigate to Settings, Application Saved Data Management, Saved Data in System Storage, Copy to USB Storage Device. Then, players should select Borderlands 3 and copy just the User Settings over to the USB storage device.
Now, players can once again load up their characters and use their five BL3 Golden Keys to open up the chest in Sanctuary five times. This will yield powerful gear that scales with a player's level, including Borderlands 3 legendary weapons, and it also exhausts the stash of Golden Keys.
At this point, players should once again quit the game and close the application. They should navigate to Settings, Application Saved Data Management, Saved Data on USB Storage Device, Copy to System Storage. Players should then copy the backup of the User Settings that was previously created back to System Storage.
Players can now load back onto their characters, and when they do so, they will discover that their five Borderlands 3 Golden Keys have returned and the loot that they collected from the chest previously is still in their inventories. This process can be repeated endlessly, so long as a player is able to maintain their patience with the loading screens that they will have to sit through to execute this Borderlands 3 exploit.
For those that prefer not to use a BL3 exploit to earn their Golden Keys, Borderlands 3 VIP codes are another way to obtain them. Additionally, there are plenty of opportunities for getting gear simply through playing the game, which is certain to be the preferred method for those that do not want to spend time on Golden Keys.
Borderlands 3 is now available on PC, PS4, and Xbox One, with a Stadia version also in development.
