Sniping players is an easy way to make coins in FUT this year, 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, and save yourself some coins in the process.

What is sniping in FIFA 22?

Web app transfer list

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

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 in the early stages of the season or make big bucks 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
  • Premier League RWs
  • French players
  • LBs or RBs from the top five leagues

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

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.

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

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

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.

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.
