Starting out in any card-collecting mode in sports video games can be intimidating these days. Even so, Madden Ultimate Team’s multiple currencies, field passes, and player upgrades can be enough to overwhelm the most experienced players of card-collecting modes. The never-ending drive to obtain all of the best cards so you can have a stacked team as quickly as possible will lead many down the dark road of investing a fair amount of real money on packs. For those who prefer to not spend anything other than all of the mode’s virtual currencies, there are still plenty of ways to earn rewards and assemble a decent team.
How To Level Up Fast In Madden 23 MUT
In Madden 23, the field passes that are new to the mode this year are how you will ascend levels within MUT. There are multiple field passes to grind at any given time, and there also different ways you can use XP to unlock those rewards. To help you improve your team in a hurry, here are some tips about which objectives and modes you might want to focus on when taking your first steps in MUT.
As mentioned above, the one and only way that you will be able to ascend levels within MUT is through gaining XP within those various field passes, so it’s best to get acquainted with how they work. Once you’ve accumulated the required XP to progress a level, you’ll receive a level reward and these will usually be unique at every level. They will also generally increase in value with the higher that you climb among those levels.
Up until recently, there were actually four field passes, including a main season one that tasked you with acquiring XP by completing tasks. But with a new Zero Chill program just starting, there are currently now only two field passes that you can complete: a Zero Chill one naturally (which has effectively replaced the season pass) and a competitive one that resets every two weeks (for online play, solo battles, and house rules games). Once you look through each of these, you’ll get a better idea of what’s required from them individually in order to get all of the available rewards.
Let’s now go into some of the better ways that you’ll be able to efficiently collect those field pass rewards.
The first thing you’ll probably want to do every day within MUT is complete all of your daily objectives because there’s Zero Chill XP to be gained from completing them individually and then for knocking them all out collectively. This will require you to do just three things: buy a pack from the store (the daily Gold+ card for 500 coins is a nice affordable option), complete a set (converting some low golds into a better gold is usually doable with cards in your collection), and record 200 offensive yards (which can be done in any mode).
You’ll get 1,000 Zero Chill XP for doing each of these and then 5,000 XP and a MUTmas calendar key that can be used in sets for a surprise reward once you complete all of the daily objectives. Last season there was also a daily tracker that would give you more XP the more days that you complete your daily objectives during the season. Though this isn’t a part of the Zero Chill program right now, that doesn’t mean it won’t return in the future as part of other programs.
You’re bound to notice that a component of the objectives within a field pass will require you to rack up certain statistical benchmarks, sometimes with players from the current program in your lineup. An ideal way to fulfill these requirements is to start off by knocking out the many challenges from the current program (Welcome To Zero Chill, Snowball Fight! and The Frozen Forge) that can mostly be completed without breaking too much of a sweat. Aside from the stats progress that you’re bound to make on any field passes, you’ll also receive rewards like coins, packs, and players for accumulating stars by completing these challenges. As if that wasn’t enough to entice you, there are typically specific objectives in a field pass that will demand you earn a set number of those stars within challenges.
Once you’re done with all of the challenges from the current program, you should move on to doing some of the other challenges, if you haven’t already finished with those. You might want to prioritize the Team of the Week challenges because they are easy to complete and will provide you with some valuable player rewards. You’ll also end up with Team of the Year tokens for completing the final challenge of each week, and these can eventually be exchanged in Team of the Year sets once those are released near the end of the NFL season.
In general, the groups of challenges are ordered by how recently they have been released, so it’s not a bad strategy to start from the top and work your way down. Remember to check back on your field passes to see what objectives you can concentrate on completing while you’re running through the different challenges.
Competitive Field Pass
As different field passes come and go, one that’s likely to always stick around and always be part of the list is the competitive one where the XP and rewards you earn will either be through playing online or solo battles versus the CPU. If you’re like me and would prefer to play against as few people online (who will regularly run the same money plays over and over again) as possible, you may want to concentrate instead on the objectives involving solo battles or special event games (like the new Deck The Halls ones) against the CPU instead.
The solo battles games are really just extended challenges, and the difficulty can be tailored to be as challenging as you would like. You’ll accrue more solo battle points if you play on harder difficulties (the battle points are yet another way of unlocking rewards), but that will consequently make it harder to put up the necessary stats towards the competitive field pass. Feel free to dip your toe into head-to-head online play (or team up with friends in online squad games) once you’ve piled up all of the competitive points you can in solo battles.
