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?
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
- Type the player’s name into the search box in the top-left corner
- Check the market value of the player you want to snipe
- Adjust the Buy Now slider for the most you are aiming to spend
- Hit search and look at the listings
- Quickly try to buy the cheapest player who pops up
- 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:
- Set the Buy Now filter to the maximum number of coins you want to spend
- Adjust the Bid Price filter to 15,000,000 – the highest it will go
- Edit the filters to criteria you are looking for
- If no listings, or you lose out, quickly go back to the Bid Price fliter and move it down one
- 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 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
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.
That was our full FIFA 22 Ultimate Team sniping guide. We’ll keep this page updated throughout the year with more helpful hints and tips when we find them.

FIFA 22 Team of the Season explained
Team of the Season is the longest-lasting Ultimate Team promo of the year. The promo begins by highlighting two leagues at a time. Each week new leagues will be the focus of Ultimate Team players as valuable cards get added to packs.
The leagues in the spotlight remain in packs for a week until they’re replaced by the following leagues. However, the final squad in packs is expected to be the “Ultimate TOTS” which combines the best players from each of the previously released TOTS squads.
As you may have already noticed, some major squads are decided by fan vote, while others are chosen by EA.
FIFA 22 TOTS player predictions
In this section, we’ll reveal five players from each of Europe’s top five leagues that we believe should be included in the TOTS promo for their leagues. Although there will be plenty of squads up for grabs, we’ll focus on highlighting the potential players from Europe’s elite.
While the majority of TOTS players will come from title-challenging teams, it’s important not to forget other key performers outside of the top teams. As the TOTS squads are revealed we’ll update this list with a * next to our correct predictions. So far, we’ve gone 10/10 with the LaLiga squad up next.
Here’s a list of potential TOTS players that we could see in the future:
- Joao Cancelo – Manchester City – LB *
- Trent Alexander Arnold – Liverpool – RB *
- Mohamed Salah – Liverpool – RW *
- Bernardo Silva – Manchester City – CM *
- Declan Rice – West Ham – CDM *
- Karim Benzema – Real Madrid – ST
- Vinicius Junior – Real Madrid – LW
- Pau Torres – Villarreal – CB
- Alex Moreno – Real Betis – LB
- Sergio Busquets – Barcelona – CDM
- Robert Lewandowski – Bayern Munich – ST*
- Christopher Nkunku – RB Leipzig – CAM*
- Florian Wirtz – Bayer Leverkusen – CAM*
- Nico Schlotterbeck – Freiburg – CB*
- Joshua Kimmich – Bayern Munich – CDM*
- Domenico Berardi – Sassuolo – RW
- Ciro Immobile – Lazio – ST
- Gleison Bremer – Torino – CB
- Fikayo Tomori – A.C Milan – CB

- Kylian Mbappe – PSG – ST
- Dimitri Payet – Marseille – CF
- Lionel Messi – PSG – RW
- Benjamin Bourigeaud – Rennes – RW
- Aurelien Tchouameni – AS Monaco – CDM
Fans of Ultimate Team can expect much more than these five names per league but we think these players are solid bets to make the cut for their respective leagues.

Is FIFA 22 cross-platform? Current cross-play status
Many players enjoy FIFA 22 with their friends, but does this year’s game support crossplay? We’ve got all the details right here.
FIFA 22 has a wide variety of modes that can be enjoyed with friends, such as Ultimate Team or Pro Clubs, but what about those playing on separate platforms? We’ve got all the details on FIFA 22 crossplay right here.
FIFA 22 has no shortage of features to tackle, whether you’re taking a lower-league club to European glory in Career Mode, or assembling the perfect squad in Ultimate Team. However, there’s no doubt that taking to the pitch with friends takes the game to new heights.
The likes of Online Seasons or Pro Clubs give players even more ways to play together, but many will be wondering if it’s possible to use crossplay to draft in friends from different platforms.
With this in mind, here is everything you need to know about FIFA 22 crossplay.
Does FIFA 22 have crossplay?
Unfortunately, at the time of writing, there is no option for crossplay in FIFA 22. This means that matches with or against friends, or found with online matchmaking, can only occur with those playing on the exact same platform as you.
This also applies cross-gen, so PS4 players can’t get into the same match as anyone on PS5, and Xbox One and Xbox Series S/X users can’t join a game.
Will FIFA 22 get crossplay in the future?
The good news is that EA have confirmed they will be carrying out a crossplay test before the end of FIFA 22’s lifecycle. They didn’t announce an exact start date, but players should keep an eye out for more information in-game.
There are a couple of caveats, however, as this proposed test will only be conducted between players on next-gen consoles, so PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S. It will also only be supported in Online Friendlies and Online Seasons, meaning Pro Clubs will still be limited by platform.
While it isn’t confirmed, it’s highly likely that by testing waters in FIFA 22, EA are gearing up for greater crossplay support in FIFA 23, and are currently looking to make sure that they have the correct infrastructure.
