How to disable Auto Purchase Items in Paladins

Where you can turn off the option to Auto Purchase Items in Paladins.

In Paladins, one thing players should know how to do is disable the Auto Purchase Items feature. After installing the game, or loading in after an update, the Auto Purchase Items feature will be enabled by default and will remain on until you manually disable it. This can be a pain, as locating and disabling the Auto Purchase Items feature in the Paladins Options menu can be hard for new Paladins players.

Why disable Auto Purchase Items? Well, the items that are auto-purchased for you by default are typically not the ones you need for the match. This is because the items you need changes dramatically depending on the match, team composition of your enemies, etc. To help, we’ve put together a handy guide on how you can go about disabling the Auto Purchase Items feature in Paladins.

Next, head to the “Gameplay” tab and scroll down until you see an option that reads “Auto Purchase Items.” Often, this feature will be set to “Enabled” by default. If you’ve been having trouble with items being purchased for you during a match, it's because this feature is set to “Enabled.”

Now that you’re here in the Gameplay tab, scroll to turn Auto Purchase Items to the “Disabled” setting. Before you exit, make sure you hit “Apply” down at the bottom to save your new change.

This will ensure that while you’re playing a match and earning Credits, you can physically assign which items you purchase with said Credits rather than letting Paladins choose for you (often poorly).
