SHIFT code list
By I'm a doge!
Okay, okay, I know that this game is a little outdated now that the Pre Sequel is here, but I still prefer playing with the 2 because I think the whole game is bigger and more cheaper than the PS. And the game is more fun if you have a lot of skins and weapons. With these shift codes you can get a lot of skins, heads and golden keys, that you can use to get weapons. Now, that you are excited about it, let's see the codes. Although it takes some time to copy the codes, it worths it. Don't forget to use CTRL+C and CTRL+V, because if you want to just type the commands in without copying them, it will take you too much time.

Important
Remember, that the game is a little old, as the time passed some codes expired. For example some of the codes worked only during an event, and a lot of codes also expired after the PS arrived. On the lists, there will be all the codes, if you find anything that already expired please leave a comment, in it please copy in the expired code, and write "expired" or something. I will check them, and if it's really expired than I will remove it.

All codes included in the guide are confirmed to be working. I'm sure these codes will never expire!

Also, the codes are only for the PC version of the game. These will not work on Xbox and PlayStation.
Activating a code
If you are new to Shift Codes, read this section to learn where and how to enter the codes. If you already know it, ignore this topic.

Start the game, go to Extras, then Shift Codes. There, you need to register a Shift account, or if you already have one, log into it. There, you will have a space to enter a 25 character code that stands from numbers and letters. You just need to highlight the code in the guide, hold CTRL and press C (copy to clipboard), then go to your game, click in the zone where you need to input the commands and use CTRL+V combination to paste your code. Press OK, and then you will have your gift activated.

If you get a message, that you can't input the code, or that it's invalid, check how you highlighted it. Make sure not to highlight the space in front of, and after the code.

So, here is a list of the codeas, they are organised in the following way:
  • Heads
  • Skins
  • Golden keys
  • Other stuff (class mods, bundles)
Heads
These commands will unlock you heads for your characters, you can equip them in a Quick Change Machine, there is one in the Sanctuary.

I only know 6 codes, but all of them should work. Every code here unlocks a head for the 6 characters (one for each). You need the "Tiny Tina's Assault on Dragon Keep's" DLC I think, because the skins looks similar to that DLC's theme. The Krieg and the Gaige skins only work if you have those DLC's too.

Skins
Some of these codes activates a skin for one character, some of them are a bundle of skins for all characters, some may include golden keys too.

Golden keys
This is a more confusing part. There are tons of codes. There are ones that give you 1,3,5,10,20 or 25 keys. I'm not sure which code works or not, most of the 1 key codes are expired, some others too, but most of the 5 keys are working for sure. Just start copying the codes in, and find out. (Most of the codes rewards 5 keys.)

Every code except the crossed one here works! Thanks for the support of many people who helped me to find and filter the expired ones!

thank you Sheckles & Possum F*cker for the info
Other stuff
There are some codes that give you the B&B class mods, one of these codes also include a golden key too. These give one mod for every class, and same level of the character you first load after redeeming the codes (info from Glorious Leader, thank you). All of them are confirmed to be working, expiration not expected.

The new codes above needs a verification, I'm not sure that they really work or not.
Most of the codes were found by Eggbutt, thank you!. Please leave a comment about the codes, I hope that they still work.

If you find any code on the internet, make sure to leave a comment about it! Nowdays I'm not following social sites, so I can't give you updates about shift codes. Of course, If i find anything, I will notice you, just make sure that you are 'subscribed' to the comment section.
Where are the codes from?
The codes were originally posted in 2013 and 2014, on forums, the gearbox website, youtube, twitter, facebook. The original post can still be found, I have most of the codes from there. Also, there are some pictures on google that includes codes, giving you the item or skin that you see on the picture.

Very important, these codes are NOT generated by me, again, these were posted by gearbox a lot ago. I just collected all those codes in one place that you can easily acess it, because in 2016 it's very hard to find the codes, because gearbox's new posts are mainly for Pre Sequel, but at least most of the BL2 codes are still working.

After activating all of them, I have about 200 keys, a bunch of skins, so if you take your time and activate the codes you can help your progress in your game.
End
If you found this guide useful, leave a like, and be sure to comment about it, feedback really helps me, it keeps me interested in making guides like this. I'm working for a couple of guides for other games, but reseaching consume a lot of time so it needs a lot of work, this way making new stuff would require more freetime, but I don't have much. This is a reason why I make things for a long time.

Don't forget to tell about this guide to your friends to help their progress too.
Donation
If you found the guide helpful, you can help me a lot by donating! Of course I don't ask you to do it, but if you have some unnecesarry items, like TF2 or CS:GO weapons, maybe a trading card, anything would be appreciate anything. Donate Here! (trade link)

UnshotSpy Sep 23 @ 8:12pm 
yeah i don't try to cheat my golden keys either, but the issue is that they are so rare and the stuff you get from the golden chest doesn't translate to the rarity of the keys. I think that in the next borderlands game, they need to make a way to earn golden keys in game (like completeing challenges or maybe as occasional drops from raid bosses) and there needs to be unique weapons that are only available in the golden chest to make it more worth using.
SickBoy Sep 23 @ 1:45am 
It should, as the numer of keys you have is merely a value in profile.bin so a memory edit of that retrieved value shouldn't cause any problems. At most you may need whoever is hosting to do the hacking (ie like how you have to do when adding anarchy stacks for Gaige)... though if there is a concern just add 250 keys while solo, then hop back into an online game.

Personally I like using the SHiFT system since that at least keeps keys somewhat special, but Cheat Engine should work just fine for those that want an easier/infinite method.
UnshotSpy Sep 22 @ 4:11am 
im pretty sure it does. ive never personally used cheat engine in borderlands but im pretty sure it all works no matter if u are online or offline.
I'm a doge!  [author] Sep 22 @ 1:53am 
@SickBoy Are you sure it works on an online game tho?
SickBoy Sep 21 @ 6:41pm 
@Brumski: if you really want to just max out your keys you can hack it in with Cheat Engine (or backup+restore your save over and over). Any general tutorial on how memory hacking works should give you the info you need.
Brumski Sep 21 @ 6:04pm 
can u find a way to get 250 keys?
