The best way to level up for free
You can access your Steam profile by going to your community profile.
You can get to Level 5 by completing the “Community” tasks if you’re at Level 0. You can add friends, watch broadcasts, make trades, comment on profiles, join groups, etc. Once you complete 27 of 28 tasks, you get 500 XP, which will get you to Level 5 or 10.
If you’ve already earned this badge, check if you have any left from the games you play on steam. These are the badges that you haven’t completed or aren’t completed. You can complete badges by clicking on a set of trading cards and buying the missing ones.
When you have all the trading cards from a set, you can make the badge for the game. You’ll gain 100 XP and level up if you’re Level 9 or lower.
A card usually costs around $0.05 or a little bit more/less. Some sets come with 5 or 6 cards, so buying cards from Steam will get you 100XP for around $0.30 to $0.36.
By clicking the badge, you can also see if any of your friends have the card you need, and ask them if they’ll trade it. Each game you own comes with trading cards when you play it. You can get up to 5 cards from one game. You can see them on the badges page. If it says “No card drops left”, you won’t get any more cards for that game.
Likewise, every year on Steam you’ll get 50 XP. Even though it’s not much, it can help when you’ve got a low Steam Level.
Playing CS:GO is the last way to get more trading cards (more steam level ups). As you play CS:GO, you’ll get cases and skins for weapons. Find people who have the cards you need and trade them for your CS:GO stuff.
Trading cards aren’t as popular as CS:GO skins and cases, so you can usually trade one trading card for one case. You’ll need to complete your card sets and craft your badges to level up on Steam for free.
The fastest way to level up on Steam
Leveling up for free isn’t forever. You can either wait until you get more Years of Service XP or use level up bots and pay to level up.
To level up, you’ve got to find the Team Fortress 2 keys from Steam and add them to the bot. TF2 keys will be exchanged for trading card sets. You can use them safely and you’ll level up fast. Some of the good ones can be hard to find, and some of them can be pricey.
You can avoid this by going to SteamLevels.com. You can buy full trading card sets there for money. You can pay with PayPal, bitcoin, CS:GO skins, or TF2 keys. For example, it would cost 112€ to go from Level 0 to Level 100. CS:GO skins would cost 160 euros, but PayPal and Bitcoin are cheaper.
