Legends: Trading Cards
This article is about Steam trading cards. For in-game cards, see Cards.
Steam Trading Cards are randomly dropped out-of-game items for the PC/Mac Steam version of the game. The collection is made up of eight trading cards and their foil versions. After spending around $9 USD on in-game purchases, a single random card will drop at random while playing. To obtain additional cards, you must either gain randomly received booster sets that can only be received by people who are active on Steam at least once a week to continue gaining cards, trade for more, or buy them off of the Steam Community Marketplace. Cards you currently own can be clicked on in your Steam Inventory to reveal a full-sized version of the image, at a resolution convenient for wallpapers.
After completing a set of cards, the option to craft a badge commemorating the feat will become available. Alongside the badge, you will receive experience points to boost your Steam Account Level, an emoticon that can be used in chat or in discussions, a random profile background image themed around Legends that you can use on your Steam community profile, and a chance at receiving a coupon for a different game or DLC. There are five badge levels with increasing amounts of rewarded experience, requiring up to five complete sets. There is also a sixth badge for collecting a full set of foil cards.
Legends was released on Steam on May 31, 2017. Purchases made through Bethesda.net are not retroactively taken into account, meaning you must make purchases through Steam to earn card drops.
