In previous Borderlands games, you could enter special codes called SHiFT Codes to unlock special loot. This feature has returned for Borderlands 3, and you can start earning Epic loot right now. You’ll need to know where to find them first, and where exactly you can enter Shift Codes in the main menu. You’ll find all of that and more on this page.

Where to Enter Shift Codes
Now that you have some SHiFT Codes to try in Borderlands 3, you’ll need to know how to enter them. Head into the main menu and select ‘Social’. Now use R1/RB to tab across to the Shift Code menu. From this section you’ll be able to enter the codes listed above. You’ll see a small tick when you’ve entered a valid one.
Shift Codes Not Working?
From time to time, you might find that some of the Shift Codes you’re using aren’t working correctly. Be aware that some Shift Codes are time-specific, so may have expired before you’ve tried to use it. We'll be updating the codes on this list if we find that any have expired.
