Gearbox's CEO Randy Pitchford Will Drop The "Mother Of All Shift Codes" For Tiny Tina's Wonderlands During PAX West
What could it be? More keys or something more?
After missing the scheduled Shift code drop last weekend for Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands, Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford will release the “Mother Of All Shift Codes” (MOASC) during PAX West to make up for the setback. Player speculation falls on the codes giving a substantial amount of Skeleton Keys or potentially new cosmetics.
For those who don’t know, Shift codes allow players to earn valuable end-game loot to ease the difficulty curve when facing formidable enemies. It has been a staple system of the series since Borderlands 2 and has been going strong for Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands. Players could keep track of how to receive Shift codes via Pitchford’s Twitter page, but as mentioned, he seemingly forgot to post last weekend’s codes and announced today he would “try” to drop the MOASC at PAX West this week.
Friends - I tried to stay off social this weekend and missed dropping a SHiFT code for you. Please accept my apologies. I will be at PAX at the end of the week and I will try to drop the MOASC (Mother Of All SHiFT Codes). What MO could you ASC for?

Pitchford’s announcement leads viewers to believe the upcoming Shift codes for the game will be very rewarding, possibly unique cosmetics similar to those in Borderlands 3. However, the Shift codes likely are a massive drop of Skeleton Keys: an item used to open randomized chests to receive rare high-end gear. Yet despite the promise from Pitchford that a worthwhile drop is happening soon, fans are more interested in what codes Borderlands 3 will get.
"Could you please, maybe show us Borderlands 3 players some love?" said one Twitter user, with another commenting that "the lack of shift codes [or] fixes has been very alarming" for Borderlands 3. Judging from the highest liked quotes, it seems the majority want more attention put back on Borderlands 3 rather than the spin-off title. Maybe both games will get some love since this next drop is supposedly the MOASC.
