Earn Diamond Keys by completing Vault Card challenges and unlock the Diamond Armory, a brand new room on Sanctuary III bursting with some of the game’s best loot.
The Director’s Cut add-on for Borderlands 3 will bring all-new ways to play when it launches on April 8. In addition to a new raid boss, murder mystery story missions, and behind-the-scenes content, Director’s Cut includes three Vault Cards, which are your tickets to a new progression system featuring daily and weekly challenges. By completing challenges, you gain progress toward unlocking themed rewards, including unique Legendary gear, tons of new cosmetic items, and a brand new in-game resource: Diamond Keys.
You may already be familiar with Golden Keys, which you can score by keeping up with Borderlands on social media. Golden Keys unlock the Golden Chest near Marcus Munitions on Sanctuary III. When opened, the Golden Chest offers up a selection of high-end gear appropriate for your level. Diamond Keys takes this idea even further by presenting you with not just a chest but an entire room full of tantalizing loot: the Diamond Armory, which is located beneath the Bridge on Sanctuary III’s upper deck.
Please note that, at this time, Vault Cards can only be accessed by players who own the Director’s Cut add-on and can’t be purchased individually or separately. Similarly, Diamond Keys must be earned through gameplay and cannot be purchased individually or separately. Director’s Cut, which launches April 8, will be available for individual purchase or as part of Borderlands 3 Ultimate Edition or Season Pass 2.
Frequently Asked Questions
Now that you have an understanding of how Vault Cards and Diamond Keys work, here are answers to questions you might have about the finer details.
Can I buy Vault Cards individually?
At this time, Vault Cards can only be accessed by owning the Director’s Cut add-on, and can’t be purchased individually or separately.
When multiple Vault Cards are available, can I stack Vault Card Daily Challenges?
No, but each Vault Card will present three Daily Challenges, so when all three Vault Cards are available, you can complete up to nine Daily Challenges each day! Similarly, each Vault Card has its own Weekly Challenge, so you can complete a maximum of three each week. Note that you can only progress Challenges on the Vault Card you have active, so make sure you’ve activated the right one.
Is there a way to reroll Daily or Weekly Challenges?
Currently, there are no plans to allow on-demand rerolling of Daily or Weekly Challenges, regardless of whether or not they’ve been completed. New Challenges will populate in your Vault Cards every day at 9:00 AM PT / 12:00 PM ET / 5:00 PM UTC for Daily Challenges, and Thursdays at 9:00 AM PT / 12:00 PM ET / 5:00 PM UTC for Weekly Challenges.
Is it possible to complete a Vault Card?
All you completionists should strive to collect all the items on each Vault Card, but Vault Cards will never technically be “completed” because they have no level cap, and will therefore always keep offering rewards. You can keep earning Vault Card levels even after you’ve scored all of that Card’s gear to earn Diamond Keys, Eridium, and higher-level versions of the Card’s gear.
Are Vault Card rewards only unlocked for my current character?
Nope—the rewards for Vault Cards are account-based, so you can redeem their rewards on any character. Vault Hunter Skins and Weapon Skins for each Vault Card will unlock on all of your characters. If you happen to get gear that would be perfect for a different character, you can transfer it with your bank aboard Sanctuary III just like any other drop!
