Like Borderlands 2 and The Pre-Sequel before it, Borderlands 3 features Shift Codes that players can input in exchange for Golden Keys, which in turn allow them to collect some of the game's best loot. These Shift Codes are primarily given away on social media, with the latest Borderlands 3 Shift Code released on Randy Pitchford's Twitter account. However, anyone who wants to use the new Borderlands 3 Shift Code for a Golden Key had better act fast as it expires in about an hour
The new Borderlands 3 Shift Code was tweeted by Randy Pitchford at 12:46pm CT. In his tweet, Pitchford said that the new Borderlands 3 Shift Code will expire in about three hours, meaning it will likely become unavailable come at 3:46pm CT. It's possible that the time will be rounded up and it will expire at 4:00pm CT, however. Some users have reported that the Borderlands 3 Shift Code isn't working at all, so fans should keep that in mind as well when they go to redeem it.
The new Borderlands 3 Shift Code is 5SKJ3-JCTSB-95B5K-3TJTJ-R5JRR. The code should be universal across the PC, PS4, and Xbox One versions of the game. Once players redeem it, they should be able to collect the Golden Key through the Borderlands 3 mail system. Players can access their mailbox through the social tab in the game's pause menu.

Once players have obtained a Golden Key in Borderlands 3, the next step is to use it on the chest that can be found aboard Sanctuary III. It's a good way to increase one's collection of high quality weapons in Borderlands 3, but fans will have to act fast if they want to use this particular Golden Key.
If fans miss their chance at redeeming this particular Borderlands 3 Shift Code, they shouldn't worry. If Borderlands 2 and The Pre-Sequel are any indication, Gearbox will be releasing Borderlands 3 Shift Codes for years after the game's launch, so there should always be plenty to go around. Those interested will want to be sure to follow the various Gearbox and Borderlands social media accounts to ensure that they can collect as many Golden Keys as possible.
Borderlands 3 is out now for PC, PS4, and Xbox One, with a Google Stadia version also in development.
