Steam Trading CardsEdit

First leaving Beta in late June, 2013, Steam Trading Cards are collectable pieces of digital artwork that players can earn, purchase, or trade for that can be used to "craft" badges. Though consuming the user's cards in the process of creation, said badges will give the user experience points to their Steam Account and also reward them with randomized drops including profile backgrounds and emoticons that can be used in chat.

Standard CardsEdit

There are nine cards for Metro Last Light on Steam, that can be gained in a number of ways:

  • Five cards are guaranteed to 'drop' to the player's Steam Inventory during or after playing Metro Last Light with the Steam client. These five are usually given within one to five hours of play, and may contain doubles.
  • A modest number of cards may also be garnered from obtaining a Steam card booster pack - which, though entirely random drops, are more frequently granted to Steam users with more experience.
  • Like most items in inventory, Steam cards can be traded with friends, fairly, or freely. From their inventory users can also elect to sell their cards to the automated community Marketplace community Marketplace.
  • Steam's community Marketplace is available for all Steam users. In it, players can search for specific cards they wish to purchase, and do so for small monetary fees. Players with extensive libraries of Steam games may consider playing a different game, collecting the five card drops from that, and then selling those for funds to buy cards they would rather have with. As of August, 2013, most cards for Metro Last Light sell for around 30 cents.

Foil CardsEdit

Several times the value (or perhaps, simply, the price) of standard cards, Foil Cards are also several times more rare than standard cards, but can be earned by all the same methods.

Full CardsEdit

All cards display more complete images when clicked upon from the badge menu.

Standard BadgesEdit

Badges take a set of all 9 unique cards to craft, and incrementally offer more experince with every level of badge. Crafting badges also grants the user rewards such as profile backgrounds, emoticons, and limited time vouchers for small deals on other Steam games.

Foil BadgeEdit

The elusive Foil Badge is an extremely expenive item to create, averaging $10 from simply the cards. It is currently unknown what rewards are given for the crafting of a foil badge, beyond further Steam Experince Points.

Reward Profile BackgroundEdit

Profile backgrounds can be used to customize the backdrop of a Steam user's profile page.

Reward Chat EmoticonsEdit

Chat emoticons can be used in any real-time or standard Client forms of communication. Though pretty, emoticons have been criticized for taking several seconds to load on the receiving user's screen, and more than questionable application in standard conversation.
