Gearbox Software announced today that they are handing out codes to everyone which may be redeemed for Golden Keys inside “Borderlands 2” to celebrate the game winning Best Action Game of the Year during the 16th Annual D.I.C.E. Awards. In horror of the achievement, Gearbox posted the codes which fans may redeem on the “Borderlands 2” main menu which will grant them a Golden Key that can be used to open a chest that guarantees rare in-game loot. Players have though Sunday, Feb 10 to redeem a code.
Every code redemption will give players a single key inside "Borderlands 2." Golden keys allow players to open a locked loot chest inside the city of Sanctuary. Unlocking the chest permanently consumes the golden key and guarantees a rare, level appropriate, piece of gear. Since the gear acquired with a golden key scales with a player’s level, it’s advised to wait on using the key until late in the game to ensure a good high-level piece of equipment. The codes for each platform are as follows.
- Xbox 360: C3CTB-XK695-33Z3R-W6BTB-XJC36
- PlayStation 3: 53WBJ-T6Z5B-WWWCJ-HBKBB-THTR6
- PC / Mac: C3CBT-RC3XW-9WF33-BTJ3T-SB99J
“Borderlands 2” is out now for the Xbox 360 and Playstation3.
