FIFA 18 FUT Squad Building Challenges - FIFA 18 Ultimate Team Puzzle Mode

Squad Building Challenges in FIFA 18 are puzzles of sorts, where you must assemble a team of players from FIFA 18 Ultimate Team that meets a set of criteria. The key here is that when you submit a team of Ultimate Team players, they are exchanged permanently for whatever the reward is. This means that you are essentially swapping 11 Ultimate Team players for a prize.

How Do FUT Squad Building Challenges Work in FIFA 18 Ultimate Team

In the Squad Building Challenges section of FIFA 18 Ultimate Team you’ll see a series of challenges. Some are time limited, so if you like the look of the rewards on offer for these, jump on them sooner rather than later.

Each Squad Building Challenge is usually split into sub challenges. Each sub challenge has its own reward, but complete all the sub challenges and you’ll unlock the main prize. Prizes come in the form of Card Packs of FIFA Coins. You can see all the prizes before you submit a team in exchange.

Upgrade FUT Squad Building Challenges

Three upgrade Squad Building Challenges, which are time limited but may well return at a later date, can be used repeatedly by players if you have enough player cards.

  • Bronze Upgrade - Exchange 11 unwanted Bronze players for a pack with two Silver players (Untradeable)
  • Silver Upgrade - Exchange 11 unwanted Silver players for a pack with three common Gold players (Untradeable)
  • Gold Upgrade - Exchange 11 unwanted Gold players for a pack with two Rare Gold players (Untradeable)

Player Specific Squad Building Challenges

Some of the best Squad Building Challenges offer star players as the main prize. The hardest challenges give full (but untradeable) player cards, while slightly easier challenges give loan cards as the reward.

These player specific Squad Building Challenges in FIFA 18 Ultimate Team run for a limited time but are replaced by new ones regularly.

FIFA 18 Squad Building Challenges Marquee Matchups

Each week a set of Squad Building Challenges will be added to do with the biggest matches taking place. This can include league and international games. It pays to look ahead and try to snap up players from upcoming big fixtures/rivalries ahead of them being added as prices tend to increase after the fact.

FUT Squad Building Challenges on the FIFA 18 Ultimate Team Web App and Mobile Companion App

If you’re away from your PC or console and want to carry on taking part in Squad Building Challenges, you can via the web app or the mobile companion app. Both these tools let you manage squads, buy/sell players, and build teams for the Squad Building Challenges. It’s like you have a portable/office friendly FIFA puzzle game to play.

    I love to play FIFA 18 on my Playstation 4. It is very addictive game for me. The FIFA 18 Hack is the best choice for a FIFA player who is looking for lots of coins and gems. Anyways, thanks for posting this guide. It is very helpful.

    I don't know what game you are playing mate but there is no way any "stop and turn" works against the god like powers of the computer AI. In squad battles (or any online mode) any difficulty passed semi-pro is extremely hard this year.

    The game applies user sliders before each match and there is a noticeable difference immediately when you start the game. My players are much slower, they don't respond normally and the computer AI user stats are buffed to the point that any player rated beyond a 70 is a mini Pele on any team. The amount of blocked shots, intercepted passes and getting pushed off the ball by a 5'4 140lbs LW is ridiculous.

    In squad battles I lose to a barely rated 70 team with a 186 rated squad, how does that make sense? I've been playing FIfa for a very VERY long time and FIFA18 is by far the worst version ever. I'm on FUT looking at all the pack "promo's'" and that's what FIFA18 is really about, exploiting people for money.

    Instead of spending money on making a better game, EA would rather profit off people by exploiting them as much as possible. The game is shit and they know it. Everything from Squad Battles, online match making, flawed defenses, bad animations, glitches, lost server connections etc etc etc, the game in general is complete garbage. Everyone please play PES instead..... #FixFIFAEdited November 2017 by Pan1cShooter
