► What are these Borderlands Shift Codes ? eMail Codes? Vault Codes?

Gearbox Entertainment and 2k run a promotion program called “Shift”. The idea behind this program is that in press releases, social media posts, trailers, and other public relation actions, codes are hidden or openly communicated. For these codes, you can get InGame rewards for free. Of course, each code is only redeemable once.

► Where can I redeem Borderlands Shift Codes?

Where can I redeem Shift Codes?

In order to redeem Borderlands Shift Codes, you have to log in (and register) to the Shift program: Which is done here

After that, you can easily enter here via copy and paste the codes under Rewards

With Borderlands 3 you can now enter Shift codes directly in the game. Just go to the social menu and change to the shift menu. Then there is the possibility to enter the code there.

Important: All rewards are sent to you InGame as mail, so you only get them when you fetch your mail !

► Important questions about the Borderlands Codes

What types of Borderlands codes exist?

Basically there are 5 different Borderlands Codes: Shift Codes, Vault Codes, eMail Codes, Creator Codes und Diamond Codes

What are Borderlands Shift Codes?

Borderlands Shift Codes, mostly come from temporary actions, where 2k or Gearbox give out 20-digit codes, for which you get golden keys, VIP points or other things for a while when redeeming. These codes are usually distributed on Twitter or Facebook. You have to keep in mind that most shift codes are platform-dependent and game-dependent, it’s then usually stated whether the respective code is for PC&Mac, Playstation or XBox, and this then only applies to the respective platform game.

What are Borderlands Vault Codes?

Borderlands Vault Codes are mostly included in marketing campaigns, sometimes more visible, sometimes hidden. Very often such codes are currently packed into Borderlands 3 announcements or live streams.

What are Borderlands Creator Codes?

2k and Borderlands feature some specific content creators on Twitch or YouTube and then give them special creator codes. Also in Gearbox’s own live streams there are such codes from time to time.

What are Borderlands email codes?

Borderlands email codes are sent in the Borderlands & 2k newsletters. Therefore you have to register for the respective newsletter programs.

What are Borderlands Diamond Codes?

The last code category is the Diamond Codes. These are one-time codes that will probably be handed out by support as compensation for game problems, or as a thank you for especially nice or helpful community members. Also in raffles and giveawayas such codes are said to have existed already. Also some pre-order versions contained Diamond Codes in the package. But I haven’t had a Diamond Code yet. And if you have one, you shouldn’t give it away, because the first one to redeem it gets it and after that it’s invalid.

► What is the Borderlands VIP Program ?

Borderlands 3 Loot

Borderlands VIP is the abbreviation for the Vault Insider Program – the program for the Vault hunters who are really into it and always want the best Loot. Here you can collect points and get a lot of extra loot for all Borderlands games.

Vip Points – What do I get for Diamond Codes, email Codes, Shift Codes, Vault Codes ?

Sometimes there are directly the desired golden keys, for which you can get particularly good items in the game and sometimes you also get directly a rare skin, or a class mod or other in-game advantages. But in many cases you also get points for the Borderlands VIP program, so called VIP points. These Borderlands VIP points can be redeemed in a special shop system. Here you can directly select certain items or participate in a kind of wheel of fortune.

► Borderlands – What do I get for Golden Keys?

Golden Keys can be used in all Borderlands parts to open a special box containing a particularly good Loot. This box is located in Sanctury and you get items adapted to each level, very often with epic or even legendary quality.

VIP Program Activities brings VIP Points

In addition, there are also so-called VIP Activities on the Borderlands page. Here you have to perform certain actions and are rewarded with VIP points. This starts with the linking of the game, a possibly also existing 2k account, goes over the linking of Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, and ends with many small tasks, where you have to look at the different marketing posts for the Borderlands games, read texts, watch videos, etc.

You can also get some points for just checking out the Borderlands Twitter page or Instagram, Facebook, etc.

Each of these VIP activities gives a certain amount of VIP points, and in total, you can collect several thousand VIP points as a reward.

► Borderlands 3 Shift Codes (PC, PS4 und XBOX) 2019:

Important information for PC players: Before activating the shift codes for Borderlands 3 you should link your Epic account with Shift, so that you are offered the activation for Epic !

General note:

If you know other codes, please write them in the comments below (no registration necessary) or mail (see Imprint). Also error messages, feedback or other suggestions, just write below.

HINT – Keep reading: Below this Shift Codes List is a longer VIP Codes List

Another Note: Unfortunately there are currently almost only shift codes for Borderlands 3 which are only valid for 3 hours or a maximum of 24 hours. I don’t know why Gearbox does this, I think it’s stupid, but we you can’t change it. It makes little sense to enter these short time codes here. If I find valid codes for a longer time, they will of course be entered here. Bookmarking and taking a look from time to time is still worth it.
