CODE ALERTS: BL3 USER GUIDE
WHAT ARE SHIFT CODES?
Shift codes are Gearbox's way to give players various items
and rewards in-game. Usually the codes are only valid for a
limited time and must be redeemed on the official website
or in-game before they expire.
Most shift codes grant golden keys, which unlock a special
chest in Sanctuary full of loot items. Sometimes shift codes
can grant exclusive items, skins and ledgendary weapons.
These items may go straight to your inventory or be found in
your in-game mail, under the 'social' tab.
WHATS THE POINT OF THE APP?
1) Never miss another shift code.
Our notification service will let you know whenever a new
Borderlands 3 shift code code comes out.
2) Save your time.
We provide a platform to easily manage, keep track of and
redeem shift codes. No more typing, no more searching,
no more entering outdated codes that have expired or
already been used.
With this app you have all the valid Borderlands 3
codes in one place, at your fingertips. All codes are
sorted in date order, colour coded with a live countdown
until they expire.
Expired codes and codes you mark
as 'used' can easily be hidden.
HOW TO USE THE APP
The app lists all of the Borderlands 3 codes in date order.
You will find the most recent codes at the top of the list.
Green is valid, red is expired, grey means it's 'used'
1) Just tap the code you want to redeem.
On the pop-up tap the button to 'Redeem this code'.
This copies the code and takes you to the official website.
2) If you do not have a shift account you will need to
register with Shift and log in. Once you have done this
you can automatically log in the next time.
3) Once logged into the official website and see where it's
prompting you for a shift code, press and hold the input
field to 'paste' your code and redeem.
4) If your code fails to redeem it is likely that you have
already redeemed it. All of our codes are tested and
verified to work before posting. Take note of the error
message that you see on the official website and check the
section on error messages below to see what it means.
PREVIOUSLY REDEEMED CODES
If you have already redeemed codes by other means,
this app has no way of knowing about it.
Those codes may still show that they are valid (green)
until you mark them as used or try and redeem them again.
If you try and redeem these codes again, it will fail
because shift codes can only be redeemed once but they will become marked as used.
ERROR MESSAGES ON THE SHIFT WEBSITE
"Failed to redeem your SHiFT code" - Already redeemed.
"This is not a valid SHiFT code" - The code is incorrect.
"This SHiFT code has expired" - The code has expired.
POINTS TO NOTE
- Codes redeemed from the app are automatically
marked as 'used'. Codes redeemed outside the app aren't.
- You can mark codes 'used' or 'unused' at any time. Just tap the code and tap the relevant button.
- Expired and used codes can be hidden with the switches at the top right.
- Expiry dates are approximate and based on the information published
when the codes were released but there's no guarantee exactly when the code will stop working.
If you don't know which shift codes you have already
redeemed outside of the app you can simply try and
redeem them all again. The ones you have already
redeemed will fail to redeem again but they will
then all be marked as 'used' and can be easily
As soon as new codes are added we will send you
a notification to let you know. As the codes are
in date order the new shift code will appear at
the top of the list.
Follow the steps above to redeem.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q. Why do none of the codes work?
A. Check the error message and the 'Error messages on
the shift website' section. It's likely you have
already redeemed the codes.
Q. Why haven't you published some of the codes that have
been on Facebook, Twitter etc?
A. We only publish valid codes for Borderlands 3 that have
been tested and verified to work. If we haven't published
it then it's either not for Borderlands 3 or we haven't
verified it works. Frequently codes for other Borderlands
games are posted on social media and misidentified as
Borderlands 3 codes. You can still redeem them with the
same shift account sucessfully and it's easy to assume
you've got a valid code but it wont show up in
Q. When is the next code coming out?
A. We have no idea but when it does, we'll find it and
send you a notification.

we find a new code we test and verify it straight away.
