How do I obtain more Golden Keys for Golden Chest(s)?

I opened the Golden Chest in Sanctuary with the Golden Key I got with my pre-order bonus. I noticed that it ate my key, threw some loot at me, and then the chest didn’t go away. I tried to open it again and it said I couldn’t “afford” it and then displayed that I have no more Golden keys, which leads me to believe you can get more of them. If I can, how do I go about doing so?


To get another Golden Key you can register at and create a new character. Then select your old character and enter the shift code you were emailed from linking your email and Steam account to SHiFT.

Also, be sure to follow Gearbox Software on Facebook and Twitter. According to Randy Pitchford, President of Gearbox, they plan on doing code SHiFT code giveaways to add more Golden Keys via these official sources in the future. (source) They have several keys a week so far, usually a couple each day on Saturday/Sunday. They’re still testing the concept according to Pitchford, so they may change how they do things.

As of October 2nd, 2012, Duval is still sending out SHiFT codes on his Twitter in an effort to test out the software that will eventually be used for the giveaways. Since he is just testing the software, this could stop at anytime though.
