Borderlands 3 follows in its predecessors’ footsteps by offering a nearly endless supply of guns to collect. The game lets you cash in special credits distributed from outside the game for loot, and the store Spencer’s Gifts is running a promotion that will let you bank some credits early.
From September 13-23, you can stop by a Spencer’s and pick up a free scratch-off card with a purchase. That scratch card will entitle you to 1500 VIP Diamond Club points, which you can use to claim in-game loot. To use the code you’ll need to have registered as a Vault Insider through the official site.
1500 points is enough to get 10 Gold Keys, which can be traded for random guns. Or you can save those points toward more expensive items like specific specialty weapons (4000 credits), or cosmetics like new skins and character heads (3000-4000 credits). Points won’t expire as long as the VIP program exists, so you can hold onto them for as long as it takes to find something you want.
Borderlands 3 is now officially available, so if you’re looking for tips, be sure to check our spoiler-free beginner’s advice and how to pick the class that’s right for you. GameSpot’s Borderlands 3 review found it a return to form for the franchise, offering a familiar loot-shooter experience that doesn’t take too many wild risks.
“If you’ve never been a fan of the franchise, it’s unlikely Borderlands 3 does enough things differently to change your mind, as the game best excels at continuing what the series has always done: deliver a humorous tall tale of misfits looting and shooting their way to heroism,” wrote Jordan Ramee.
