Borderlands 2 Golden Key Code - Act Now

To all the fortune hunters out there still searching for the best loot available in Borderlands 2, Gearbox has just released a code on twitter to receive a golden key to access the exclusive chest found in Sanctuary. Just sign in through Shift on your Borderlands 2 game, and enter the code. (Borderlands 2, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Awesome, up to 4 keys now!

It's so annoying...I keep missing these

"Sorry but the code you have entered has expired"

It's always when us in the UK are in bed...shouldn't they just update the news page on Shift to tell us when were playing.

You're not the only one...this is getting so effing ridiculous.
banjadude  +   1228d ago
I've given up after 3 (different time of day) attempts now. I'm stick of having to wait by Twitter, so I just gave up entirely.

I'm just going to feint (or is it.. faint?) ignorance to this whole shift code BS (extra emphasis on BS).

People writing articles about redemption codes which are active between 30 and 120 minutes... lol
xerokai  +   1228d ago
How are you supposed to get these things if you are not on twitter or facebook? I always see them here but they are already done by the time I try to redeem them.....
Darkspade  +   1228d ago
I thought the Golden Key would be Found through out the world.. I'm not Likely the code deal...
Zsigawhat  +   1228d ago
To all those complaining: follow these twitter handle to get "to the second" updates without waiting on an article @DuvalMagic @GearboxSoftware.
Also, if you look back at the redemption times they were 9am and 9pm central, 3pm and 3am London time... And 2-4am central which is 8-10am London time. I don't see how you are sleep then?!

Okay see I don't wan't to use twitter..... I could understand putting bonus codes on twitter in addition to providing in game ways of earning the codes but to only have them up on twitter makes it so if I want to fully enjoy Borderlands 2 and it's golden chest filled with goodies I have to use an external source. not cool.
Zsigawhat  +   1228d ago
I understand where you are coming from, but I think this is a pretty innovative way to increase replay value. Using social media is one of the best ways to get people on the game who may have stopped playing because they moved on to a different game. It has forced me to log into the game 5times already and while I am on why not play?

Also you can follow the twitter feed without having an account. Just search for the name and click on tweets.

I kinda agree with Zsigawhat. It's an actual incentive to gamers who want to participate with it and actually makes a core difference to the gameplay experience when you use the Key. But you know what, most people play the game until level 50 without the Keys anyway. It's not like you cant enjoy the game without.
Sarcasm  +   1228d ago
I was one of those suckers that used the Golden Key first time I saw it.
Megaton  +   1228d ago
Redeemed all 10 of my keys after hitting 50 yesterday. Got a lot of good stuff, but here are the two best.

Nice.
GAMExxOVER  +   1228d ago
I feel bad for you guys, here I am with over 600 gold keys and you guys with crumbs. Wish I could hand em out to you guys somehow.
banjadude  +   1228d ago
I only have a pathetic 2... which was only given to me, because I had a pre-order, and got the Loot Box Edition.
GAMExxOVER  +   1228d ago
The bad part is, you are not guaranteed something very cool, most of the weapons you get are going to be at least a little better than you can buy or will find randomly, but often you will get stuff in the box you do not need or really want, you might get a class mod that is no better than what you have or you might get a mod for a class you do not even play, same with artifacts and the like. you might have a key or two and want a good weapon, you might not even get a weapon at all, and if you do, it might be a weapon you do not like to use, if you are a sniper type, you might end up with a shot gun. its really a crap shoot.
VonAlbrecht  +   1228d ago
My favorite thing about this silly practice is that you don't actually have to sit there signed into a social networking site that you despise to get a key.

You can just... edit an .ini file.
banjadude  +   1228d ago
I'm pretty sure they patched that, didn't they?
GAMExxOVER  +   1228d ago
Mine works fine, just used it today, then again, I have blocked my game from communicating with the mother ship via my firewall.
LtComAmbrose  +   1228d ago
I have infinite. Which brings me to my next point. The loot from this box is awful I have opened it over 100 times and NEVER has anything really good come out ... just some crappy purples

The new set of borderlands 2 codes are active, these codes will give you a golden key if you place it in SHIFT. Just visit Randy Pitchford tweeter page right now they're only available in the next 2 hours so hurry
VonAlbrecht  +   1228d ago
Seriously? They release a code at 4 in the morning pacific time and wonder why people don't like it?
MYSTERIO360  +   1227d ago
I know but if you were available for it why not
