@golguin: "Tomorrow (Weds) I will be tweeting two 1k redemption 5 Golden Key SHiFT codes - one in the morning and one in the evening (US Central time)."

Hope I can snag one. Or both.
#52 Posted by Mnemoidian (960 posts) -

@Capum15: Ah, that's a shame - depending on his definition of "evening"; that might make Europeans miss both! (working for morning, sleeping for second).

Ah well, I'm sure there'll be more keys down the line :)

I have 11 hours into BL2 and I have no idea what a Golden Key is

I took a peak at this thread for this precise reason. Sounds like marketing slime. Eh, whatever. I don't care enough about games to be getting fussed over access to some loot chest dealy.

What is a 1K redemption vs. a 10K redemption? Is that the # of codes?

#55 Posted by Capum15 (4987 posts) -
@morrelloman: From what I can tell, yes. So there will only be 2k people (or less counting overlap) who will get the keys.

So, what kind of things do you get from the gold chest? Anything particularly noteworthy?

@BeachThunder: Random weapons, but they're usually better than normal chest weapons. Blues, purples, stuff like that. I've gotten some incredibly amazing weapons, as well as some incredibly "meh" weapons.
 
Also, Code is up, but only for PS3 right now - WJKJT-RX6CH-CHJC3-ZBWT3-SHKXJ
 
Edit: PC went up right as I typed that - CBWTB-W3W5X-FBB3J-TJB3T-KBCST
 
And 360 code went up as I'm typing this - WJKJT-RX6HB-BFRB6-WFTT3-SHK5X

I managed to get them for the PC version.
#59 Posted by selbie (1967 posts) -

Codes are up! :D

More to come this evening US Central time

#60 Posted by ajamafalous (12146 posts) -

The PC code he just sent out has already been redeemed. Dumb.

#61 Edited by stalefishies (344 posts) -

Welp, Steam took forever to update and so apparently all the PC keys seem to have gone in, what, 5 minutes? Nuts.

#62 Posted by PerfidiousSinn (770 posts) -

Now I have two keys that I won't ever use.

#63 Posted by trickology101 (29 posts) -

PC codes don't work anymore =/

#64 Posted by golguin (4040 posts) -

It's gone on the 360. How did 1000 people turn on their 360 and put the code in 10 minutes after it came out?

#65 Posted by j3ffro919 (243 posts) -

Actually the Xbox code was done less than 5 minutes after the tweet :(

#66 Posted by Messier (214 posts) -

That code got me up to 9 keys so I finally cashed one in because curiosity got to me at level 19. I pulled 2 BLUE relics. One that buffs shotgun damage by 14%, one that buffs shield regen delay by 13%. At least they were worth 1K each. So disappointing...definitely saving the keys for higher levels now.

#67 Posted by morrelloman (609 posts) -

So 10PM central time tonight for the second run?

#68 Posted by Mnemoidian (960 posts) -

@golguin: Probably had their Xboxes on, most likely playing the game? 1000 is nothing, especially considering that he's got 38k+ followers, and a lot of people (like this thread) are sharing the keys on further.

@Messier: It's random, you are as likely to get super-awesome stuff you can use as getting relics for classes you aren't playing.

#69 Posted by NicksCorner (433 posts) -

Aw man, too late to the show I guess. Please share more codes in the future ^^

#70 Edited by selbie (1967 posts) -

Randy's tweet:

@tyneusch Working on 50k - 100k redemptions + no limit redemptions in a set time period (ie - 1 hour). 1 redemption per acc't per code.

— Randy Pitchford (@DuvalMagic) September 26, 2012

Rest assured guys. There will be more :)

#71 Posted by Ascardon (71 posts) -

Any one else know about this?: if you create a new shift account ingame in borderlands 2 you get one gold key for free.

#72 Edited by Messier (214 posts) -

You can also get 360 keys from local split screen accounts too. Sign in a 2nd profile, that account will have a key, open the chest and then have your character pick up the loot. You could technically do that as many times as you wanted to create new local profiles.

For sure, just wanted to illustrate that its still a crap shoot. I read that the chest only had purple gear or better in it.

#73 Edited by MHumphreys89 (724 posts) -

So i'm gonna have to stay up late, again, guh; Americans don't understand.

Just tried this, it works! Just create a new local profile, plug-in another controller and you get a ticket for both characters. Thanks for the tip.

PS3 Code is up - 5TCB3-SRX59-CS3K3-9TWTJ-T5BC6
 
PC -  Gone within about 20 seconds. Didn't even manage to get it.
 
360 - 5TCB3-SRX93-BR6J6-5XTTJ-T5BXJ

#75 Posted by Barrabas (326 posts) -

Yeah, I'm not trying to get these anymore until they get the time limited ones going (i.e. unlimited keys for 1 hour). I tried putting the PC one in the moment he put it up and didn't get it. They literally only lasted a few seconds.

#76 Posted by MHumphreys89 (724 posts) -

What's the point if people are just going use bots?

#77 Posted by trickology101 (29 posts) -

Wtf??? 360 and pc codes gone already??

#78 Edited by Capum15 (4987 posts) -
@trickology101: Yeah, that's pretty ridiculous. Twitter's been laggy for me so a friend copy and pasted it on Steam, and then I copy and pasted it into SHiFT since I had Borderlands alt-tabbed...still didn't get it. Crazy. But it does seem that Gearbox is getting ready for a massive redemption with a time limit.
 
Edit: "Massive redemption code via official Gearbox Software twitter and facebook will be planned, announced and coordinated. Not a surprise."

One redemption per account. Buying 1000 copies of Borderlands 2 to get some extra loot rolls would be a weird con.

I got 5 the other day, yay.

From Sir Pitchford twitter about 5 minutes ago:

"I am about to tweet Borderlands 2 SHiFT codes for Golden Keys that will allow for any number of redemptions (1 per account) for a set time. This is a test of this system. We're aiming to have the codes function for about thirty minutes. We'll monitor server load, though."

If I don't have to leave before then I'll have them up in a few minutes.

Edit:

360: CBKB3-3BKC6-TF6J6-CRB3B-H53B3

PS3: CBKB3-3BKH3-XH3K3-HJC3B-H53R6

#81 Posted by Cincaid (2959 posts) -

He just posted another code, good for another 2 hours:

  • PC: C3WBT-6BZF9-FBJBJ-B3JJJ-BB53S
  • X360: K3K3T-H6B5F-J6FBX-563J3-BSHZX
  • PS3: K3K3T-H6B9B-R9BCT-935J3-BSHS6
#82 Posted by j3ffro919 (243 posts) -

He just released another code for all three platforms, the new one just went live and it's valid for the next few hours. Im on my phone so posting them isn't an option, but if you check out his twitter feed you will see them.

#83 Posted by Cincaid (2959 posts) -

@j3ffro919: Or people can read my post above yours :D

#84 Posted by j3ffro919 (243 posts) -

Sorry, phone doesn't update when posts happen, when I wrote my post no one had made mention of it.

#85 Posted by Capum15 (4987 posts) -

Oh sweet. Kinda slept through the first one, managed to grab this one. Wonder how many will be released in total; looking forward to it.

#86 Posted by White (1410 posts) -

I wonder if we can undo the patches and get the text file cheat to work again =/

I need moar golden keys!

#87 Posted by golguin (4040 posts) -

Gearbox is currently having an issue and redemption will not work for the moment (personally confirmed on 360).

Randy Pitchford will update Twitter when it works.

EDIT: I just went to the man's Wikipedia page. Not a bad read...

RE-EDIT: It works now!

#94 Posted by Swaboo (451 posts) -

@mlarrabee: It also gave me errors on pc but i managed to redeem it.

#95 Posted by Capum15 (4987 posts) -

I just input the PC code and it worked with no errors.

#96 Posted by Lukeweizer (2763 posts) -

Where do I enter the codes? In game?

#97 Posted by ajamafalous (12146 posts) -

Yeah, PC worked fine for me. Looks like they figured it out.

#98 Posted by Swaboo (451 posts) -

@Lukeweizer: Theres an Extras menu on the main screen. you have to register to SHIFT, which gives you a golden key, and after you redeem the code you get another one.

#99 Edited by NegativeCero (3039 posts) -

Great, now I can use one for the end of each playthrough on my Zero.
