Brett Favre and a few of his friends come back to the NFL once again in Madden NFL 17. Four versions of “The Gunslinger” are now available in the Madden Ultimate Team mode.
Players logging in automatically receive an 86 OVR BONUS Brett Favre, and completing the first sequence of the Favre Frozen Solo Challenges unlocks an 89 OVR Favre. That card and his Packer pals, Sterling Sharpe and Antonio Freeman, are necessary to complete the second solo challenge and earn a 92 OVR version of Favre.
There are also two 96 OVR versions that contain the Gunslinger Ability Chemistry. One version with Deep Threat chemistry is available in packs for a limited time, and the other is a Master Set Reward which is earned by “gathering players, collectibles and completing solo challenges.”
Favre, a Super Bowl XXXI champion and three-time NFL MVP, was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame this year. He was most famously known as the former Green Bay Packers quarterback with a penchant for “retiring” often, joining the New York Jets for the 2008 season and the Minnesota Vikings from 2009 until his actual retirement in 2011.
