Simply put, the Vault Insider Program, built in partnership by Gearbox and 2K, is a way for us to celebrate Borderlands fans like you. As a Vault Insider you’ll earn points and rewards for doing a lot of the fun stuff that you’d probably be doing anyway, like watching videos, reading articles, checking social media for the latest Borderlands updates, and of course, signing up for the program in the first place. Points can then be redeemed to claim rewards such as Gold Keys, wallpapers, and more in-game and out-of-game rewards that will be announced soon; stay tuned to the website for the latest updates. Oh, and did we mention you’ll receive an exclusive Welcome Pack featuring in-game items for Borderlands 3 just for signing up? You will!
I Want In, How Do I Join?
Before you can become a Vault Insider, you need a SHiFT account. If you don’t already have one, you’ll have an opportunity to create one during the VIP sign-up process.
Note that you must be at least 18 years of age to join. Be sure to review the Vault Insider Program Terms so you know all the important details.
Hang On, Why Do I Need a SHiFT Account?
SHiFT is the platform that powers all in-game promotions and rewards in Gearbox games. Without SHiFT there’d be no way for you to receive all of the awesome in-game rewards that are coming your way.
OK, I Signed Up! Now What Do I Do?
Be a Borderlands fan! You’re probably doing some of this stuff already, but in case you’re not, be sure to follow us on social media, make sure you’ve signed up for promotional updates, and check out articles and videos here at borderlands.com. You can start earning points right away by referring friends and creating a 2K account to stay up-to-date on 2K’s other games. Check the hit list on your profile for up-to-date info on which activities are available for you right now. If you’ve already preordered Borderlands 3, don’t forget to claim your Early Adopter Pack; it includes a Children of the Vault weapon, an Echo Device skin, and five Gold keys that open chests in Borderlands 3.
Additional ways to earn points will be rolling out over time, including some that won’t appear on your hit list because they’re super-secret and designed to reward super-fans with super-rewards.
Remind Me, What Do I Get?
If you signed up, you already earned yourself a Borderlands 3 Welcome Pack containing high-rarity grenade and shield mods as well as a VIP weapon trinket. Score! Your items will be delivered to you in-game when you start playing Borderlands 3. Other rewards available right now include wallpapers and Gold Keys that are redeemable in current Borderlands games. With the legacy Gold Keys, there’s no need to wait for Borderlands 3 to come out. You can jump right back in to revisit your favorite Borderlands games.
Finally, don’t forget to claim your Early Adopter Pack once you’ve preordered so you can save up even more gear for Borderlands 3 on day one!
