Borderlands 2 Golden Keys explained

By Naren Hooson, Friday, 14 September 2012 06:46 GMT

Used to unlock the Golden Chest in the city of Sanctuary, it will give a player access to the very rare loot contained within.

Examiner reported on a post in the Gearbox forum by Chris Faylor, Gearbox Community Manager, outlining how one may obtain a golden key, but also how it works in the game.

This very rare loot is scaled to a character’s level. And because a player will only get one of these keys, it is crucial to consider what quality of loot they want to unlock.

While the loot itself can be traded or sold, the key cannot.

Preordering the game from a Premiere Club retailer or acquiring a code from an event or giveaway could earn you a key. Another way to get your hands on one is to purchase a Mechromancer DLC season pass.

Sometimes we include links to online retail stores. If you click on one and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. For more information, go here.
