Gearbox loves three things: Borderlands, morse code, and Shift codes. We’ve already found plenty of morse code secrets hidden in the Borderlands 3 trailer, and it seems Gearbox is still rolling out more Shift codes for Borderlands 2. The following Shift code was found in a newly released and noticeably modified version of Borderlands 3‘s box art:
Redeeming it will net you Maya’s Community Day skin, Last Call.
The morse code scripts on either side of the central Psycho have already been cracked – and seem to tease the return of Borderlands 1’s infamous final boss – but players have sniffed out a few other secrets in the new art. For starters, there are a few strange symbols around the ship above the Borderlands 3 logo, but their meaning is anyone’s guess. See for yourself:
There’s also another code hidden amongst the roses in the bottom right. It reads:
Rather than a Borderlands Shift codes, this is a simple alphabet cipher. Each number corresponds to a character in the English alphabet, so when decoded, it reads: “We don’t speak of Sanctuary 2.” Sanctuary, you may recall, was the main hub in Borderlands 2. Perhaps it’ll make a comeback in Borderlands 3 as well? I mean, Lilith did teleport the whole dang city at one point, so it’s clearly mobile. But if there is a Sanctuary 2, why don’t we speak of it? The questions are piling up.
There’s one more secret hidden in the roses: a petal emblazoned with the word “Sirens.” This isn’t much of a teaser – Sirens already being a known quantity in the Borderlands universe – but it is another bread crumb for diehard fans. I’m anxious to see the role Sirens play this time around, especially since the latest Siren looks so badass.
