Just received 10 keys for Borderlands 2. I did not preorder the game. I own Borderlands, but I don't think that has any correlation to the golden keys in game.

Where did these keys come from?

    How exactly did that happen? Btw, even preorder wasn't worth 10 keys...

  • Er, count yourself lucky I guess. Haven't heard of anyone getting that many without modifying some files (naughty naughty)

  • I haven't modded any files. All I know is: I bought the game Sunday, two days letter, message saying: You have received 10 golden keys! I was suprised, but I'm not sure if others have been getting this or not.

  • I also got 10 keys after signing up with Shift from their website.

  • @badp: Now I feel cheated! I had to work to get the 3 keys from a Shift Code weekend.

There was an issue that would corrupt your profile, causing you to lose all your badass ranks. As part of the patch that fixed it, they also awarded all affected players 10 golden keys.


If you sign up at Gearbox Shift you will receive golden keys as a reward. If you use Shift codes you can unlock even more golden keys.
