The ever popular Ultimate Team mode is, of course, back for another year in FIFA 21. This year, the changes are a little limited, with online co-op being the mode’s only real addition. So that you can complete SBCs easily and get a chemistry boost to your squad, here’s everything you need to know about how to get loyalty in FIFA 21.
Loyalty is something that you’ll want every player in your Ultimate Team to have. What it does is boost a player’s chemistry by one, if they’re not already at max, boosting the affect of Chemistry Styles somewhat.
When looking at your squad screen, you’ll see a little green shield at the bottom of players’ cards if they’re loyal. You can see what you’re looking for in the screenshot down below.
How to Get Loyalty in FIFA 21
As have been the case for as long as I can remember, there are still two official ways to get loyalty in FIFA 21.
- Every player that comes from a pack will have loyalty automatically.
- Every player who has played ten games for you club will be loyal.
Playing ten games with a player, or hoping that you can pack them, can be frustrating, especially when you want the player for an SBC and not your own squad. In an attempt to get around it, you might be wondering if there’s a way around it in this year’s game.
Well, you’ll be pleased to know that there’s a loyalty glitch in FIFA 21 that you can use to get an entire team a loyalty bonus in less than 15 minutes.
How to Do the Loyalty Glitch in FIFA 21
Load up Ultimate Team and put all of the players you need to get loyalty for in a team. If it’s for an SBC, fill it out within the SBC page, and then use the Squad Actions ‘Copy Squad’ option.
Now go to the ‘Play’ tab and select ‘Squad Battles.’ Choose any opposition and whatever difficulty. When you get to your team select screen, edit your squad and paste the SBC team in. Go ahead and start the match.
As soon as the timer appears in the top left-hand corner of the screen, go to your console’s network settings and disconnect from the internet. Go back into FIFA 21 and you’ll have an error message informing you that you’ve disconnected from the servers. Press A/X to return to the main menu.
Now go back to your network settings and get your console back online. Go back to your Ultimate Team and check the player stats for any of the players you need loyalty for. You should now see that it say’s they’ve played one game, but it won’t have counted towards your overall W/D/L ratio.
Rinse and repeat this another nine times and the entire squad will have loyalty, ready to be sent off in that SBC for whatever lucrative pack it awards.
It’s worth pointing out that any games you play in Squad Battles will be counted as having been played in the mode, therefore seeing you miss out on any potential points for that game.
That’s everything you need to know about how to get loyalty in FIFA 21. For more tips and tricks on the game, be sure to check out our wiki guide or search for Twinfinite. We have also listed some other helpful guides down below.
