Fans of FIFA Ultimate Team in FIFA 22 need two things: coins and Squad Building Challenge (SBC) fodder. The FIFA 22 Bronze Pack Method is a tried and tested way of generating both.
EA has tried to nerf the profitability of the Bronze Pack Method (BPM) over the last few years. First, with the removal of player fitness from the game in FIFA 21, valuable squad fitness cards were dropped from Bronze Packs. Then, in FIFA 22, the cheapest regular Bronze Pack (400 coins) was removed from the store, with only the 750 coin Premium Bronze Pack remaining.
So is the FIFA 22 Bronze Pack Method still worth doing? In short, yes. The Bronze Pack Method is still one of the best ways to make coins in FIFA 22, without spending real cash on FIFA Points. It remains popular with FIFA streamers like ‘MattHDGamer’, ‘Nick28T’ and ‘NepentheZ’ on their Road to Glory (RTG) accounts for almost a guaranteed steady profit.
We prefer to do our Bronze Pack Method – along with all of our Squad Building Challenges completion – on the Web or Mobile App. It’s faster, with fewer clicks, and you’re less likely to make any mistakes.
But why are random bronze cards selling for upward of 3,000 coins on the market? Well, League-specific SBCs require some bronze cards which are harder to come by, driving the price up with demand. Simply put, there isn’t a big supply of top league bronze players on the transfer market, so you can make a quick buck if you know what you’re doing.
Here’s everything you need to know about the FIFA 22 Bronze Pack Method so you can grow your bank balance in Ultimate Team.
How to do the FIFA 22 Bronze Pack Method
Looking for the best FIFA 22 Bronze Pack method? We’ve got you covered.
The first thing you need to do is open a load of bronze packs. You should start with at least 20 packs (15,000 coins), but some hardcore BPM advocates including MattHDgamer and Nepenthez open Premium Bronze Packs for 40-50,000 coins per time – until their trade pile is full.
If you haven’t got the coins for that, don’t worry – you will soon!
Once you’ve opened your packs, check the price of everything on the market. You’ll get used to quick-selling the bulk, but make sure to check every player you pack to see if they’re selling or not. You’ll know which ones are in demand, because the majority of cards won’t be listed for 200 coins Buy It Now.
You can opt to sell everything, because most things, even minnow team tifos and kits, will sell eventually. However, you probably don’t want these items cramming your transfer list. Save this for players and popular club items which sell for big coins.
So what sells in the bronze market on FIFA 22?
- Players from Top 5 leagues will sell for a minimum of 1,000 coins, often much more, giving you an instant profit of 200 coins (after the 5% EA tax) on the whole pack.
- Some random players are inflated either due to popularity back home or being in an SBC solution somewhere online. This is why we check every item we pull from Premium Bronze Packs.
- If a player has a bronze base card and gets a TOTW upgrade to silver, you can pull this from a bronze pack! These quickly sell for between 4,550 and 5,180 coins, or can go on the market for much more, so cross your fingers for some pack luck.
- Kits and badges of popular clubs will sell, eventually (you might need to relist once or twice). It’s worth checking the price on these, and discarding most, but for example, the Forest Green kits will be a guaranteed sale.
- Certain managers sell well, depending on their nationality. The French manager R. Peyras has been a FIFA legend for years, and sells for 4,500 – 5,000 coins.
- Red, black, and white stadium items (banners, themes, tifos) will sell for 200 coins.
The two to five contracts you get in a Premium Bronze Pack are also worth keeping if you want to never buy a contract again, or you can sell the rare ones for 200 coins BIN and quick sell the common ones.
Discarding all of the consumables and club items will return 120-185 coins each time, depending on the distribution of those three rares and how many players you get per pack.
It’s worth noting that you can find 100-400 coins in Premium Bronze Packs. You’re guaranteed to break even with consumables and 200 coin sales here.
FIFA 22 Bronze Pack Method options
While many do the BPM to inflate their bank balance, some also do it to give them a leg up on SBCs. At the moment, with the existence of League SBCs, the BPM is a great way of getting your hands on sought after players on the cheap.
League SBCs are made up of four specific challenges asking for various players from across the league. Rewards are specific to each set, with the highest profile leagues giving the best packs. The best bit? They’re repeatable, and around for the rest of the year.
There are currently 12 League SBCs available. These are:
- Premier League (ENG 1)
- Ligue 1 (FRA 1)
- La Liga (ESP 1)
- Serie A (ITA 1)
- Bundesliga (GER 1)
- Eredivisie (NED 1)
- EFL Championship (ENG 2)
- MLS (MLS)
- Liga BBVA MX (MEX 1)
- Saudi Professional League (SAU 1)
- Conmebol Libertadores (LIB)
- Conmebol Sudamericana (SUD)
So called ‘off league’ players which don’t belong to a league with an active SBC can be put into Bronze Upgrade SBCs to generate untradable silver cards for – you guessed it – League SBCs.
The content you get from League SBC rewards should help you climb up to bigger packs. Either start with lower leagues and grind up to bigger ones, or accept that you might have to buy the last two or three cards for each part of the challenge.
Using this conveyor belt of BPM into upgrades League SBCs should give you a steady flow of both tradable and untradable rewards. With enough fodder and packs opened, there are players completing the ‘Top five’ League SBCs – with the best rewards – multiple times per day.
When to cash in on bronze players in FIFA 22
On Thursday when Marquee Matchups come out, you should check your club for players from the teams in these live SBCs; some cards which you’ve kept for either League SBCs or duplicates will have risen, and Thursday-Friday is the time to cash in.
The FIFA 22 Bronze pack method is a long-term profit and card generator – so don’t expect to make loads of money instantly. If you want to do that, you’ll have to actively trade on the market.
If you’re a full-time menu surfer, there are plenty of creators out there who use Bronze Pack Method into the repeatable League SBCs, and then use the rewards here to put into Icon SBCs. If you want to make FIFA a part-time job, go for it! Thankfully, running BPM for coins doesn’t take that much labour, and can be used to nicely tick over your coin balance throughout the season.
