Maybe, at 10 for 99 cents, when I needed them to help defeat a badass / boss.

Would you pay for Borderland 2 shift codes that would only work for you?
I'm trying to beat the "invincible" guys now on the first playthrough and even though I'm several levels "higher" then they supposedly are, I think without better guns it's entirely hopeless. Haven't even been able to come close so far. I'd probably pay 99 cents for 10 shift codes that were just for me now jsut for the heck of it to see what new guns I got.

Obviously, if they did somethign like that, there would be a good percentage of people pissed at their money-grubbing ways but not I if they were not too crazy with pricing. Even 99 cents is probably a bit steep considering they are random and sometimes you get crap you dont want.

Also, they'd need to tie it to the user shift accounts to prevent sharing.
I'd let their money grubbing hands in my pockets occasionally.

I am confused as to what these are for? Do they just give you a key to open the loot chest in town?

Yeah, and the loot is random and isnt always even for your character. However, the loot is typically always purple loot at your level - so better usually.

I didnt use the keys you get at all till half way through the game. Wished I hadnt used any because right now I could actually use them. :) I'm outgunned, dang it. I want to beat the "invincible" guys on the first playthrough. So, now I'm stuck till they release another DLC or give me more free shift codes for a chance at a couple nicer guns.

Paying for weapons using "real money" in a single-player part of the game is retarded... Find a working exploit or a cheat program for it and use that to advance further if you're "stuck".

Ok its for the loot chest in town, heh. As JohnC pointed out. If you are solely playing single player there are ways to get unlimited keys.

I aready have 35 keys saved up;/ They give em out fairly often.

As for the invincibles just google em and exploit thier weaknesses. All of them have a spot they cant hurt you or a tactic they cant defend against.

The codes are pointless, they break the game and ruin the enjoyment by trivialising the whole loot system.

If you want unlimited access to the epix chest, just google it - it's no more of a cheat than the shift codes, which are thinly-veiled advert/marketing cons.
