Steam Trading Cards are virtual cards earned by playing games on Steam. Sets of cards can be turned into game badges and tradable Steam community items.

Foil Cards[edit]

Foil cards are significantly rarer and more costly than regular cards. They can be used to craft the special Foil badge. Otherwise, Foil cards serve no different purpose than regular cards.

How to obtain[edit]

  • As a drop while playing Dota 2.
    • Because Dota 2 is a free-to-play game, players do not receive free cards like most other games. Instead, a card drop becomes available for roughly every $9 USD spent on cosmetic items in the Dota 2 Store.
    • If you have card drops available, they will appear automatically in your Steam inventory as long as your Dota 2 client is open.
    • Cards drop approximately once every 15-60 minutes.
  • From the Steam Community Market.
  • By trading with another player.
  • From a Booster Pack.
    • Booster Packs are packets of several cards that drop randomly after you have forged one Dota 2 badge.
    • Booster Packs can also be bought on the Market.
    • Booster Packs drop more frequently for players with higher Steam Levels.
Level Booster Pack drop rate
10 +20% drop rate
20 +40% drop rate
30 +60% drop rate
40 +80% drop rate
50 +100% drop rate, etc...

Badges[edit]

Once a player has collected a set of 8 cards, a badge can be crafted on the Badges page in their Steam Profile. Badges can be leveled up by crafting repeatedly, with each set raising the badge level by one. The Foil badge can only be crafted with a set of Foil cards. Badges can be featured on your Steam Profile.
