Sniping players is an easy way to make coins in FUT, so we’ve made a complete FIFA 22 Ultimate Team sniping guide.

Sniping is an invaluable skill when buying players in FIFA 22 Ultimate Team because it helps keep hold of some of those precious coins. Here’s a full guide on what sniping is, how to do it, and how to use it to make FIFA coins.

FIFA 22 Ultimate Team is all about filling out your team with the best possible players, from clinical strikers to clutch defenders. If you’re lucky, you’ll pull your dream player from a pack, but there’s a good chance you’ll have to tackle the Transfer Market instead.

While every player has a specific value, like any market you can secure a bargain if you put the time into sniping rather than just paying upfront. We’ve put together an in-depth guide on how you can snipe your dream team, and save yourself some coins in the process.

What is sniping in FIFA 22?

FIFA 22 webapp transfer market

Simply put, sniping is the art of bagging a player from the Transfer Market for less than its usual value. This usually requires the user to act quickly and make the purchase seconds after the listing goes live.

Other FUT fans that are looking to sell a player quickly, or perhaps didn’t check the market properly, will occasionally list players for much less than they are usually worth. These are the listings you are on the hunt for.

How to snipe in FIFA 22

  1. Type the player’s name into the search box in the top-left corner
  2. Check the market value of the player you want to snipe
  3. Adjust the Buy Now slider for the most you are aiming to spend
  4. Hit search and look at the listings
  5. Quickly try to buy the cheapest player who pops up
  6. Refresh and repeat

If you’re looking to snipe a specific player, the first thing to do is type their name into the search box on the top-left of the market screen. This means that only listings for that player will show up and you won’t accidentally buy the wrong man.

Then you’ll need to check the actual market value of whoever you’re looking for to get an idea of what sort of price filters you need to set up.

Once you know how much they usually sell for, head to the price filters on the bottom-left tile and adjust the Buy Now slider to slightly less. There isn’t a certain price that guarantees you’ll find a listing, so it’s best to set it for the absolute maximum you would be willing to spend.

From here, it’s just a case of refreshing the market until one pops up so you can move in for the snipe. There are thousands of other snipers who may be trying the same thing, so don’t be discouraged if you don’t win the battle every time.

How to refresh the market quickly

One of the hardest parts of sniping is being the first to get onto the market so you can snatch a player before everyone else. If you’re too slow, then you’ll find yourself missing out more often than not.

Luckily, EA have provided a way of refreshing the market quickly if you follow this step-by-step guide:

  1. Set the Buy Now filter to the maximum number of coins you want to spend
  2. Adjust the Bid Price filter to 15,000,000 – the highest it will go
  3. Edit the filters to criteria you are looking for
  4. If no listings, or you lose out, quickly go back to the Bid Price fliter and move it down one
  5. Hit search again

Carrying out this method each time refreshes the market quicker than simply searching again with the same criteria. It takes practice to get the hang of, but the quicker you can pull it off, the more successful you will be.

How to make FIFA coins through sniping

FIFA 22 Transfer list screenshot

While sniping is a great way to land a player for your Ultimate Team at a big discount, it’s also a way that savvier FUT fans can make easy coins.

By sniping lots of cards for a lower price, you can then re-list them back on the market for their actual value and net a tidy profit.

This can be a way to make small gains over a long period of time or make big bucks in one swoop if you’re able to snipe a high-value player for a lot less than he’s worth.

If your aim is purely to make coins, consider casting a wider net with your filters instead of looking for a specific card. For example, if French defenders are going up in value, search for all of them rather than just Kounde or Lacroix.

Who to snipe in FIFA 22

If you’re looking to sell cards to earn some coins, it’s best to go for those that are in demand.

That means sniping any players, managers, or consumables that are rare, needed for a Squad Building Challenge, have a high value, or are out of packs.

The market is always changing, but here are some transfer targets to get you started:

  • CBs with a high pace stat
  • Brazilian mangers
  • Hunter Chemistry Style
  • Players required for SBCs
  • French players
  • Silver cards from the top five leagues

Why you’re finding it difficult to snipe in FIFA 22

FIFA 22 Buy Now screenshot

Even if you get the hang of sniping players, you may notice that they are often snapped before your fingers can react. There are a number of reasons why this could be happening.

The first is your internet connection. If there are multiple snipers all going for the same card at the same time, those with slower internet speeds will always find they come out in second place.

There’s also the issue of other users, especially on PC, bots to buy players automatically. These bits of software quickly snap up listed cards within microseconds of them going live.

Unfortunately, when it comes to snipe bots there isn’t much you can do other than try and hunt for a different card that may not be as obvious.

How to complete FIFA 22 Flashback Isco SBC

Flashback Isco SBC FIFA 22

Real Madrid midfielder Isco is available via SBC during the LaLiga TOTS promo. Here’s how to complete the FIFA 22 Isco Flashback SBC with the cheapest solution.

EA have been releasing incredible Flashback SBCs on the same day that each of the major leagues begins their week-long TOTS promo. Dele Alli was available with the Premier League TOTS and Axel Witsel was available with the Bundesliga TOTS.

Now it is Spain’s turn as the Isco Flashback SBC enters FIFA 22 alongside the LaLiga TOTS squad. Isco is looking like a top-tier midfielder alongside the new boosted cards from LaLiga.

Here’s what you need to know about the FIFA 22 Isco Flashback SBC, including the cheapest solution.

Isco Flashback stats FIFA 22 SBC

Isco is the ideal offensive midfielder to play right under your forwards. The Spanish midfielder boasts a great combination of 5* skills and 4* weak foot. This is excellent for top players who utilize skill moves to make space on the pitch.

Isco shouldn’t be too difficult to link given the plethora of meta LaLiga cards that just entered Ultimate Team. He’ll compliment TOTS Benzema and Vinicius Jr. well with superb Dribbling and Passing stats. His Finishing, Shot Power, and Long Shots stats are also impressive, which proves he can get in on the goals as well.

How to complete FIFA 22 Flashback Isco SBC

To complete this SBC, players will need to give up three squads: Real Madrid, Spain, and LaLiga. With a value of around 290,000 coins, Isco is certainly expensive, but it’s fair value considering his overall rating and quality. You might want to consider getting him into your FIFA 22 squad alongside any LaLiga TOTS players you might pack.

You can check out the cheapest solution below.

Real Madrid requirements

  • # of players from Real Madrid: Min 1
  • Squad Rating: Min 85
  • Team Chemistry: Min 70

Real Madrid solution – Cost: 68,000 coins

The Flashback Isco SBC will be available for two weeks as it expires on June 3. This should give you plenty of time to save up coins and fodder to meet the SBC requirements above.

Isco is certainly a meta midfielder for FIFA 22’s endgame and if you use any LaLiga players, he’ll prove to be an asset to your team. Don’t forget to keep an eye out for the Ansu Fati and Jesus Navas LaLiga TOTS objectives, which are free cards that also pair well with Isco.

FIFA 22 TOTS Swaps explained

FIFA 22’s TOTS features the Token Swaps system which has been a major feature in FUT promos this year. Here’s everything we know about FIFA 22 TOTS Token Swaps and an explanation of how it works.

Team of the Season is always the biggest promo of the year, as the very best players from LaLiga, Ligue 1, and other top leagues over the past season are given massively upgraded cards.

For FIFA 22, EA are kicking things up a notch, as a Tokens system features for the first time in the event. First introduced as part of Icon Swaps, Tokens Swaps have played a huge role in FUT this year, including promos like Future Stars and FUT Birthday.

But how does FIFA 22 TOTS Token Swaps work? Here’s everything we know so far.

FIFA 22 TOTS cards

FIFA 22 TOTS Token Swaps start date

After EA confirmed that TOTS Token Swaps would arrive in FUT, the program started on May 6 in FIFA 22. EA later confirmed that as of May 20 you’ll be able to redeem all of the tokens you collect between May 6 and May 27.

They also hinted that fans are in store for a second swaps program that would kick-off when the first one comes to a close on May 27. This second program will likely focus on a combination of LaLiga, Ligue 1, and Serie A rewards.

What are FIFA 22 TOTS Swaps?

FIFA 22 TOTS info

The Swaps system asks players to earn Tokens by completing in-game objectives and SBCs, which can then be submitted for rewards. You can choose to save up all of your Tokens for the top prize, or splash them on multiple smaller rewards – the choice is all yours.

Tokens are added almost every day, and while most are easy to spot, some have been known to be smuggled away in one of the individual Marquee Matchup SBCs. We recommend checking FUT every day at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET / 6 PM GMT / 7 PM CET to make sure you see them all.

EA confirmed that there are 25 to earn in total, with the best reward requiring 22. Keep your eyes peeled, as you can only afford to skip three if you want to scoop the highest prize.
