The Cards system in Paladins is one of the main features that sets the game apart from other ones in the genre. Cards provide Champions with several different bonuses like modified weapon shots and skills with new effects or higher potency.
Each champion has their own card collection that is exclusive to them, which are organized in 4 categories: First skill, Second skill, Third skill and Armor/Weapon. All players start with 5 card sets for each champion. Additional card sets can be obtained by crafting them or by opening Radiant Chests. Rolling cards already owned will automatically turn them into Gold.
Each card has 4 variations (Common, Rare, Epic and Legendary) bundled together in sets.
There is also a type of cards called Items, which are extra cards that are purchased during matches with points earned in them to gain extra bonuses. For more information please go to their page: Items.

Loadouts and deck building[edit | edit source]
Champions use cards through loadouts. Each loadout is composed of 5 cards. Loadouts are selected and switched during a match by pressing the U key by default from the spawn room. All champions start with a pre-built loadout that players can use.
Apart from the pre-built loadout, players can also create and customize their own loadouts. Each champion can have up to 4 custom loadouts. These loadouts can only have cards that amount to a maximum of 12 points. Each card tier has a different points value:
- Common cards require 1 point
- Rare cards require 2 points
- Epic cards require 3 points
- Legendary cards require 4 points
Loadouts cannot be saved if they exceed the maximum points limit.
Players can set what loadout they will use by default from the loadouts creation screen.
Card crafting[edit | edit source]
Players can craft unowned cards with Gold. To craft a card players must first either create or edit a loadout for a champion in particular, then click one of the card slots to bring up that champion's card collection. Each card has 4 tiers bundled together in sets. It costs 1200 to craft each set of cards.
Golden cards[edit | edit source]
Gold Cards are special, cosmetic variants of regular cards that can be rolled from Radiant Chests. These golden cards will replace existing cards in the player's collection with an updated gold frame.
Once a Gold Card is acquired, the player will also receive a spray of that card's art. Gold Card sprays are usable only by the champion the card belongs to. Currently there are only a few Gold Cards with sprays. More Gold Card sprays will be added in the future.
