    BL2 - Golden Keys

    For those that don't know, golden keys are used to loot the chest near the fast travel station in Sanctuary. Everyone who pre-ordered got 1. You can get another by signing up for Borderlands Shift. You can do so by opening up the game, going to "Extra", then you'll see "Shift Code", then signing up. It looks like it notifies you via email of news/goodies/updates they release.

    It doesn't take very long to do, either. Plus, for a golden key and other goodies in the future, it's totally worth it. This way, you can open it up early on, get some good purple guns that will last for a while, and save one for the max level, as the loot in the chest scales with level and with how many players you have in your party. And weapons that you may not use on that character can be stored in your bank for future playthroughs.

    Gearbox has also said they plan on giving golden keys in other ways in the future, so if you want to use 1 early, go for it.

    Micro-transactions!

    I dont believe I got a key for the pre-order. I got my Club Premier Pass. Was it in that?

    Ya it should announce that you have a golden key.... You can also edit the willow.ini file to give yourself keys, sort of like how people edited it last time for more text lines on guns and to turn off startup vids.

    You can disable the startup vids by renaming the .bik files for 2kgames, nvidia, and gearbox (forget the exact folder, Ill look it up when I get home). Im not hacking anything to get any golden keys and get banned from online play...

    hacking more keys could end in a vac which would be bad.

    Im not going to do it but its editing the same file everyone (we had a stickyed thread for it) did on the last game. You notice how I didnt link to how to do it. I like my account VAC free thank you very much.

    Of course the last game wasnt run through steam like this one is.
