Building a strong team in Madden 22 is nearly impossible without spending coins, especially if you want to be competitive online.

You might be able to find some great players in packs you can get through solo challenges but, at some point, you’ll have to address specific positions in your team. This is when you’ll need to dig into your pockets and buy packs, items, or players on auctions.

While some players will have no problem with investing real money into Madden 22, most people are likely looking to find ways to farm coins in-game.

Here are the best ways to get coins in Madden 22 Ultimate Team.

Do Your Solo Challenges

And I mean, do all of them, at least the easy ones in the Campaign.

For most of these challenges, you’ll get coin rewards for achieving certain milestones. More importantly, you’ll always get valuable players that you can sell or exchange in sets for auctionable players.

Legends challenges are an absolute must when it comes to getting valuable rewards. Complete any challenge and you’ll get a powerup player that can be sold for quite a profit. It also goes without saying that some of these players are great early-game assets that can make it easier to complete some of the other challenges and get more stars.

Each challenge rewards you with 1,000 coins so 8 challenges = 8,000 coins. They’re not as easy as the ones in the Campaign (when it comes to game difficulty) but the conditions are pretty easy to meet. Legends are also a weekly thing so they’ll provide you with a steady stream of players and coins.

MUT Legends Challenge

Gridiron Forge challenges are also pretty rewarding and you can get past the first two levels easily. Later levels, though, require at least a solid team and some skills so you’ll want to put this on hold until you complete other, easier challenges.

Finally, the Campaign offers the easiest challenges and you can get through the entire preseason in two days (depending on how committed you are).

MUT The Campaign Challenge

The first few challenges are incredibly easy – most of them will be set to Rookie difficulty with a team that’s lower ranked than yours. The goals themselves will also be quite simple: rush for 5 yards, pass for 15 yards, score a touchdown, etc.

Once you’ve completed the entire Legends set, the first two Gridiron Forge sets, and the preseason in Campaign challenges, you should easily have more than 50,000 coins. This is more than enough to bring a few big players through Auctions.

Work the Auctions

One of the best ways to get coins in MUT is to invest some time and play the auction game.

Think of it like the stock market: buy low, sell high. Take advantage of the people who don’t do their research and make mistakes by selling solid players at low prices. Use filters to look for a deal, buy a player card, and sell it for profit. You can earn 500-1,000 coins per trade quite easily.

Take a look at this Cameron Brate auction. He’s going for 2,900 coins but other people are offering him for 4,900 and 6,500 (the guy that put him for 9,600 will hardly see any offers). You can buy him low at 2,900 and flip him for 4,000+ to make a profit.

Do this five times a day and you’ll have around 100,000 coins in a month.

However, be aware that for any sale you close on Auctions, you’ll be “taxed” 10%. So include this into your calculation and ensure you’re still making a profit after the tax.

Don’t Buy Packs (With One Exception!)

This isn’t really a tip on how to get coins but rather how to not waste coins unnecessarily.

It may come a day when Madden decides to up their game with Packs but, as it stands, Packs will rarely have a player worth spending money on. Only open packs if you desperately need a few players to complete a set. Financially, buying a pack is an irrational decision and it’s not something you should do if you’re looking to be smart with your Coins.

There is one pack that’s always worth opening, though: the Get a Player pack. Madden pros already know this but for newbies, this will be game-changing information.

Get a Player packs are one of the most cost-effective moves you can make. First of all, you need to open a pack every day to achieve your daily goals so it may as well be a cheap pack that costs only 500 coins. Second of all, these packs will contain players that may not be impactful but they’ll always be usable for something.

You can exchange them for a solid player that you actually need or fill in some sets.

Not to mention that you will often stumble upon a player that’s worth three or four Get a Player packs on Auctions. In the example above, we got a 74 OVR Core Rookie player that can be auctioned or sold for 14 training.

Sign Up for MUT Rewards

The last method to get coins in Madden 22 Ultimate Team takes very little effort but, over time, it should provide you with some great rewards.

When you sign up for MUT Rewards, EA automatically tracks the number of packs you open in the game and, based on this number, puts you in one of three categories: Pro, All-Pro, or Legendary. Each month, you’ll get a set of rewards with the start of a new promo.

These rewards usually won’t include coins but they’ll always include something tradeable for coins. And, since the only thing you need to do is sign up, it’s extremely cost-effective.

This is another reason why you should open those Get a Player packs: they count towards the tally of your total packs opened and they’ll help you reach a higher MUT Rewards level.

Final Word

The best way to get coins in Madden 22 Ultimate Team is to just put in the work and make smart decisions.

Be active in Actions – there’s always a deal to be made either by selling a player you got from packs for free or by buying low and selling high. 

Finally, don’t neglect your Challenges. The early ones are easy and they’ll make you a lot of coins in the early stages.
