Free Additional Golden Keys for Borderlands 2

September 19, 2012

Everyone that registers & links their console gamertag (XBL/PSN/Steam) via shift.gearboxsoftware.com will receive three additional Golden Keys to unlock uber-loot!!!

This is Gearbox’s fan appreciation site similar to THQ’s Darksiders 2 & Rockstar’s Social Club; so this is legit. In the Xbox-version, the linking of your gamertag is thru the ‘Extras’ option in the main menu. After you’ve linked your gamertag to your registered account (from the shift.gearboxsoftware.com site), your three keys should automatically load when you select a new game or continue on the current playthrough. Woot!!!

You can call me Willy Wonka now. 😉

    So do you need to do anything in the game to get the Tickets? Or can I just link my Gamertag to that site and whenever I load the game up the Tickets will show up then?

      Just register for an account on the shift.gearboxsoftware.com site, confirm account activation from the email that they send you, hop into your BL2 game on your Xbox (‘Extras’ option on Main Menu) & click “link gamertag”, then hop into a new game or continue with current one. Once you get back into your game, you will see a message pop up on your HUD indicating that you’ve just received three Golden Keys to use! Disregard having to type in your code even though it says to (Xbox handles it differently than Steam & PSN). Voila, three free Golden Keys with no strings attached! 😀

      Hope this promotion is still running by the time I get back to NC. I’d have my Mom do it for me, but I don’t want to confuse her too much, haha.

    Thanks for the detailed instructions, Blank! 4GN will be cashin’ in on that loot!

    P.S. PlayAsia hasn’t received ANY of their copies of the game for any system (and thus haven’t shipped it), so we won’t be getting our hands on it till next weekend. 😦

    Also, I have a public announcement. Tornado Rider, Degrees, is back online! He has changed his gamertag ever so slightly, and you will find only his new, active GT on my Friends List. Feel free to send him a Friend Request. Apparently, he is working two jobs, so he doesn’t have a lot of spare time, but when he does, he wants to be gamin’!

    ❤ all around!

    So are the Three Golden Keys specific loot or randomly generated? If random, aren’t they best to be used when you are high level then, or second pt?

      You can use them whenever you want, but many will want to hold off until their character’s level is very high. Once they are used, they are gone forever. Many gamers that are using their Golden Key while playing with the public are getting booted from the games & their spoils looted. So, beware & hook up with friends rather than strangers.

      This link does a great job explaining what a Golden Key is & how/when to use it.

      Well if you guys still have it by the time I get to rent it, which seems like a few weeks from now given that only three redbox have it and they are kind of far, I would love to record what you guys get.

    The Golden Keys open a specific chest in Sanctuary that gives out pretty good-very good random loot. It does not give out excellent weapons. Also, these keys are known already to sometimes glitch (I believe, based on the incidents I have read about, if you use them on a game hosted by a friend, it has the chance to work unlimited times.)

    FYI: The Golden Key is only a ONE time use. Use wisely my friend… I’m saving mine till Blank and I hoist a glass and open Pandora’s Box together…

    Save the key till you really need it / want it. It’s a One Shot engagement.
