Pace is a key part of the FIFA 22 meta and can be the difference between a good team and a great team. Here’s our guide on the fastest players in FIFA 22.

Whether you’re building your Ultimate Team or starting a new Career Mode, injecting the right amount of pace into your squad can be vital to success.

Speed is often thought to matter most in wingers and fullbacks, but in FIFA 22, it pays to have it across all areas of the pitch.

Luckily, EA seems to have been more generous with pace stats this year, and there’s plenty of speedsters to choose from no matter the role. Here are the fastest players in FIFA 22 for every position.

Top 10 fastest players in FIFA 22

Mbappe in FIFA 22

Fans are always keen to know the overall quickest players in every game. Each year, many of these stars will become some of the most valuable in Ultimate Team and a go-to signing in Career Mode.

On September 21, 2021, EA officially revealed the players with the highest pace stats in FIFA 22. Many familiar faces make up the top 10, but there’s a couple of surprises along the way too.

These are the 10 fastest players in this year’s FIFA.

FIFA 22 fastest defenders

If you want to survive in the game’s meta, you’re going to need to have some speedy players at the back. Many of the attackers set to be used in FIFA 22 have pace stats over 90, so it’s essential to have a backline that can keep up.

Fullbacks are constantly having to deal with tricky wingers with lots of skill. They can easily be breezed past by a well-timed drop of the shoulder, so pace is vital in helping the fullback recover.

Center-backs often have better defensive awareness, but that only carries them so far in FIFA 22. When the ball is inevitably played in behind, it becomes a foot race with the striker.

These are the quickest defenders in FIFA 22 by position and their price on Ultimate Team.

FIFA 22 fastest midfielders

While in the back and front lines, it may be evident that speed is essential, you can often get away with slower, more technically gifted players in the middle of the park.

However, adding a central player with a bit more pace into the mix can be a great way to break through defensive lines or trackback and stop a fast counterattack.

Likewise, having quick left or right midfielders depending on your formation can make it far easier to get into decent crossing positions.

These are the midfielders on FIFA 22 with the highest pace stats by position.

FIFA 22 fastest attackers

The FIFA 22 meta demands that you have plenty of quick and nimble players at the top end of the pitch.

Rapid wingers can be the secret to unlocking a tightly packed defense. They can use their acceleration to make precious space and deliver a cross.

Through the middle, having a fast striker opens up the chance of a counterattack. Alternatively, they can be paired with a target man to win headed knockdowns.

These are the fastest attackers in FIFA 22, as well as their price on Ultimate Team.

FIFA 22 Ultimate Team pack animations: How to tell if it’s boards or a walkout

Packs are the lifeblood of FIFA 22 Ultimate Team, and there’s an easy way to tell if you’re about to get boards or a walkout.

Published

on

FIFA 22 walkout player animation

Opening packs is one of the many things that makes FIFA 22 Ultimate Team so addictive, as we desperately hunt for that next star player. Luckily, there is a way to tell if you’re getting a boards or walkout player before you see their face.

FIFA 22 has landed, and eager fans are jumping back into the Ultimate Team grind for another season. A dizzying amount of packs have already been opened, as fans seek to pull the game’s highest-rated players.

Even though EA has made the pack animations far less drawn out this year, there is still a period of suspense while you’re waiting for the player to reveal himself.

However, those with a keen eye will notice a way of knowing how good the pack is ahead of time.

FIFA 22 boards pack animation

Every card can be useful in some way, whether it be as a starter in your Ultimate Team, an impact sub, or SBC fodder. That being said, everyone opens a pack with the hope of getting someone who’s at least boards.

These cards have a rating of 83 or above, and in some cases can still have very high values depending on their stats, league, and nation.

The giveaway from EA that you have packed a boards player is that the stage that shows off the best card in the pack will have orange flames on both sides.

Once you spot it, you know you’re guaranteed at least an 83-rated card or higher.

FIFA 22 walkout pack animation

While packing a boards player is by no means a bad result – what fans really want to see is a walkout.

As the name suggests, these cards are rated 86 or higher and are accompanied by an animation of the player walking onto the screen and doing some sort of celebration.

Much like boards, these packs are also met with fireworks that light up the screen. This time you’ll see six different flames from all around the stage to hammer home that you’ve been awarded something particularly special.

After a few suspenseful moments, the nation will appear on the boards at either side of the card, and the player you have packed will come out – usually performing a hilarious animation.

Fans had originally complained that the animation for walkout players was too fast and didn’t build up enough tension compared to previous years, but this was changed in the latest update.

That was how you can tell how good a pack is before the best player inside is revealed so you get hyped in advance.

EA may tweak the pack animations further throughout the year, we’ll update this page with any new tells that are added or discovered by fans.

How to recover quick sold FUT players in FIFA 22

If you’ve quick sold a player by mistake in FIFA 22, here’s an easy way you can recover them before they’re lost forever.

FIFA 22 Quick Sell Recovery

Quick-selling players in FIFA 22 Ultimate Team is an easy way to make quick coins on unwanted cards. But how do you recover them back if you quick sell by accident? We’ve got a guide, right here.

When it comes to Ultimate Team, as much as we’d love to constantly pack the game’s top-rated superstars, we all know that isn’t always the case.

If you pack an unwanted FIFA 22 player who doesn’t have much market value, you can quick sell to make a quick buck.

But if your fingers slip and you accidentally discard a high-value TOTW or an SBC player, don’t panic – there is an easy way to get them back.

How to recover quick sold players in FIFA 22

FIFA 22 menu

For whatever reason, EA hasn’t included a way of retrieving lost players within the main FIFA 22 Ultimate Team menus.

Luckily, all is not lost, because you can easily get them back using the FIFA 22 Web App.

Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to do it:

  1. Login to the FIFA 22 Web App or the mobile Companion App
  2. Head into the Club menu
  3. Click on ‘Quick Sell Recovery’
  4. Press on the calender icon and select the date you discarded the player
  5. Scroll to the player you want to retreive
  6. Click ‘Recover’
  7. The player will now move into the ‘Unassigned’ section of the main FUT menu
  8. Send them back to your club
Quick sell recovery in FIFA 22 Ultimate Team

This is an extremely useful feature if you’ve mistakenly lost an item, but it does come with a handful of caveats that fans should be aware of.

Quick sell recovery requires players to pay back the coins they received for originally discarding them.

This isn’t an issue with untradeable cards, but worth bearing in mind with special cards that have big quick sell values.

You can also only rescue players you have quick sold in the last seven days, after that they are lost forever. There’s also a limit of five recoveries every 30 days.

Unassigned section of FIFA 22 Ultimate Team

That was our easy guide on how to recover quick sold items in this year’s Ultimate Team, so keep it in mind the next time you discard your best player.
