Madden 20: How to Get MUT Coins Fast & Easy
Madden 20 is here and EA’s favorite game mode, Madden Ultimate Team AKA MUT, is back (obviously). If you ever think EA would allow MUT to die without replacing it with something supremely more profitable you’d be very mistaken! That said, it’s popular for a reason; it’s fun to build your own fantasy team and in this guide, we’re going to go over how to get MUT coins fast and easy in Madden 20.
How to Get MUT Coins Fast and Easy in Madden 20
Tip 1: Do the Easy Stuff Like Challenges to Get a Bank Roll Going
Coins are the most important currency in Madden 20. Without them, your team is going to grow its OVR much slower than someone who is banking up coins and spending them wisely.
However, you got to get a decent-sized nest egg of coins going first before you can really start building your team up. So your first stop should always be Challenges in the Play Section. There are plenty of challenges to complete with coins as a reward even more so now with the addition of Stars.
New to Madden 20, you can now select your difficulty and in return get better rewards. To rack up all the possible coins from a challenge as quickly as possible, play everything at max three Star difficulty and go for all the optional challenges for five Stars which usually is accompanied by more coins.
Obviously, if you can’t do it because it’s too hard to turn it down. It starts to become not worth it if you’re repeating the same failed challenge over and over, but find your sweet spot difficulty wise and start grinding.
Run through all the challenges you can until you at least have somewhere in the vicinity of 20-40K coins. If you’re reading this and it’s still early access time, do the EA Access challenges as they are rewarding a crazy 500 coins a pop.
Tip 2: Work the Auction House and Profit Off Lazy People
This next tip for getting coins in Madden 20’s MUT mode might sound cruel, but it’s the circle of life for veteran players. To get MUT coins consistently without having to grind yourself into a bored bag of footballs, you’re going to need to spend some time in MUT’s auction house and hustle.
You need to study the auction house like it’s the real-life stock market. You want to find great deals on cards whether you want to actually use the card or not, and notice when players are selling higher or lower than they normally would.
Know your limits when bidding and don’t get into crazy wars for any card. There’s always going to be another bid coming up that won’t cost you as much if you’re patient. Let the suckers pay more than they should.
Instead, find cards that are going cheap (perhaps at dead times during the day), and then flip them for a higher price via Buy Now. It may take longer but you’re guaranteed to get coins if you’re patient.
Don’t sell yourself short and give away a card for cheap to make some quick coin. There’s so many lazy people or people with more coins that they know what to do with, and they’ll eventually buy your card as long as it’s somewhat reasonably priced. Someone out there is willing to overbid for something or just buy a pricy buy now fee because they don’t feel like waiting.
One more tip is to keep an eye on popular players like Baker Mayfield or someone with high name recognition. These cards tend to be overpriced because people want to use their favorite players. You can flip cards like Mayfield for lesser-known players that are just as good OVR wise.
TLDR: Be patient, flip cards for a profit, and you’ll have a steady income of MUT coins in Madden 20.
Tip 3: Don’t Buy Packs (Usually)
The quickest way to get ripped off in Madden 20 is to gamble on packs. Yes disclaimer: you could roll the dice and get an incredible card to use or sell. Absolutely that could happen.
More likely though? You’re going to get a bunch of crap and you’re going to feel bad about the coins you wasted. Just hang onto your coins, save up, and find that sweet auction house deal that allows you to get exactly the card you want at a fair price without having to gamble on packs.
It’s just like going to the casino and playing slots. The times you win will almost never outweigh the number of losses you eat.
There are some exceptions. If EA is doing some kind of pack promotion that is guaranteeing you something worth spending your coins on then sure go for it. But your average elite packs? Stay away unless you truly have everything else you need. Save yourself the headache is our advice.
Tip 4: Play, get MUT Coins, But Be Smart About It
Finally, don’t get so wrapped up in stalking the auction house that you forget to actually go play the game. You’ll get coins through playing games and if you’re particularly good at MUT, you can win some additional prizes too.
But if you truly want to maximize your coin earning potential in MUT for Madden 20, play smart. If you have a game in hand, don’t run up the score. Chew up the clock, finish up your opponent and move onto the next one.
If you’re doing challenges and all you need to do is get a certain amount of yards and the other team’s score or yardage doesn’t matter, go get your yards, and let the CPU just score to get the ball back ASAP.
Using these tips will make the coin grinding in MUT for Madden 20 so much more bearable and get you to the point where you feel comfortable taking your MUT team online in Head to Head and online tournaments.
That does it for how to get MUT coins fast and easy in Madden 20 for PS4, Xbox One and PC. Good luck this season MUT heads!
