The Cards system in Paladins is one of the main features that sets the game apart from others in the genre. Cards offer players the ability to empower a Champions's attributes and enhance or modify their skills, tailoring them to a particular playstyle. All cards are available to all champions to use for free. Each champion in the game has their own unique card collection that cannot be used by any other champion.
Cards are equipped by champions 5 at a time in sets called loadouts. Players can increase or decrease the strength of the cards in their loadouts to one of the 5 ranks (Common, Uncommon, Rare, Epic and Legendary), however loadouts have a fixed limit to the total card rank.

Loadouts and deck building[edit | edit source]
Cards are equipped by champions in sets called loadouts. A loadout is equipped at the start of a match and cannot be switched mid-game. However, if the round has not started, players can repick their loadouts by pressing the loadout key ("U" by default) while in the spawn room. Every champion starts with a pre-made Default Loadout, which consists of 5 cards set at rank 3.
Players can create their own customized loadouts through the Loadout screen, which can be found in the champion's profile. Players have can have a maximum of 5 custom loadouts per Champion. These loadouts must consist of 5 cards with a combined card rank of 15. The rank, which can be from 1 to 5, is displayed at the bottom left corner of the card. Loadouts cannot be saved if they don't meet the requirements. If an existing loadout stops meeting the requirements for any reason it will be disabled and won't be usable in matches until it is edited and corrected.
