I have 10 golden keys on my lower level Commando. However, I want to transfer them to my higher level gunzerker.

Is this possible by any way?

I thought goldenkeys were on a per account basis? Perhaps they are per computer, as I've added lots of codes and my home pc has like 12, but I just redeemed the 5x from today at work and my work mac has 6 keys. –  DavidYell Jan 10 '13 at 15:28
    
I don't know.... I have 1 key on gunzerker and 10 on commando. –  Meraj99 Jan 10 '13 at 15:30
    
shouldn't it be on the steam cloud, so it shouldn't be set to one computer –  Paralytic Jan 10 '13 at 15:34
    
To make it easier, I have added the PS3 tag. –  Meraj99 Jan 10 '13 at 15:36
    
Tested this. At home PC I have 16 golden keys. At work on Mac I have 6. –  DavidYell Jan 11 '13 at 15:24

Golden keys are tied to your SHiFT account, and cannot be bought, sold, traded, or otherwise used for any purpose but opening the golden chest in Sanctuary.

According to an official source on the Gearbox forums:

Keep in mind that you cannot trade or sell Golden Keys, and once you’ve used a Key to open the Golden Chest, that Key is gone for good.

However, the loot you get from the chest is just normal loot and can be traded normally.

If you need more on a character, you might consider keeping track of a list of SHiFT codes - there are codes for multiple keys that pop up from time to time.

Is there a reason as to why I have different key counts on the same account? –  Meraj99 Jan 10 '13 at 15:38
    
@Meraj99, that I don't know anything about. On the Xbox, you can create multiple profiles and have different characters on different profiles - my wife has about 10 keys and I have more like 25, as we're logging in under different profiles. –  agent86 Jan 10 '13 at 15:39

Note that the loot is tied to your level though, if you open the chest on a low level char and trade them to a higher level character the guns are basically junk –  Ben Brocka Jan 10 '13 at 19:10
