Paladins Wiki

Items (previously known as Burn cards or Shared Cards before Paladins CB33) are special kinds of Cards that all Champions have access to via the in-game item store. These items allow players to gain useful benefits such as bonus movement or reload speed. There are four types of items: Defense, Utility, Healing, and Offense.

Items can be purchased at the spawn rooms by pressing the item store key (I by default). Items are purchased with Currency Credits.png Credits. A maximum of 4 items can be bought per match.

Each item can be upgraded up to two times, replacing the previous item with a stronger version of itself. Each upgrade costs the original value multiplied by 2 or 3 (e.g. a 300 Currency Credits.png item will cost 600 Currency Credits.png to upgrade to tier 2, and 900 Currency Credits.png to upgrade to tier 3). Once purchased or upgraded, items can be sold or downgraded, as long as the player has not closed the store. There is an autobuy function that allows new players to have the game purchase items for them. This feature can be toggled on and off in the Gameplay tab in the Options menu.

Before the update Paladins 2.1 Update only one item of each category could be purchased by the player, now category restrictions were lifted. Players can undo purchases made in the item store, as long as they have not closed the store page with the Paladins 3.5 Update.
