So there’s this pretty golden chest near the spawn point in Borderlands 2 on the PC, PS3, and Xbox 360.
You can tell it’s got something great in it, but you can’t open it can you? No.. it shows a key that you don’t have, and you can’t seem to find one huh?
That my friends is called the golden chest, which can only be opened with a golden key.
Golden keys can only be obtained either from having pre-ordered the game, or from Gearbox promotions.
I’m guessing that since you’re here, you didn’t pre-order the game, so lets get to the other options.
Currently you can get a free golden key from signing up for the Shift program in the Extras menu. All you really have to do is give them your email address and sign up for them to be able to send you offers and such. Pretty standard really these days.
There will be future promotions I’m sure to get you free golden keys, but for now you can check out my other article which will allow you to use your one golden key multiple times.
