How to open Hearthstone card packs faster

#Guides#News

Here’s how to open card packs faster in Hearthstone and how to open them while you’re AFK.

At the start of every expansion, you'll likely get a bunch of Hearthstone card packs. It can take what feels like forever to open these packs when all you want to do is create some decks and jump into a game. So here's how to open Hearthstone card packs faster.

How do you open packs faster in Hearthstone?

If you want to open your Hearthstone card packs faster, then launch the game and press the "Open Packs" section on the main menu. Next, press your spacebar and hold it. This continuously opens each pack and reveals each card faster compared to dragging a pack one by one into the designated area.
To give yourself more time to examine each card, just press your spacebar after each card reveal. This can all be done without having to use your mouse.

How do you open all card packs in Hearthstone?

Another way to open your packs faster is to press your spacebar and hold it to begin the process. Next, click outside of the game and let go of your spacebar. The game then continues to open up card packs for you.
  • Launch Hearthstone and press the gear icon on the bottom right.
  • Press the "Options" button.
  • Uncheck the "Fullscreen" mode.
  • Press "Open Packs" on the main menu.
  • Press the spacebar and hold it to begin opening packs.
  • Click outside of Hearthstone and let go of the spacebar.
This method works if you have two computer screens. If you don't have two monitors, then clicking on anything outside of Hearthstone again makes the game pause in opening packs.
