Welcome to the trophy guide for FIFA21. This can also be considered a walkthrough and may be used for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Steam. Achievements for Steam and Xbox are in almost all cases the same as the PlayStation 4 Trophies. A roadmap is provided in the stages below.

Follow us on twitter for the latest news and giveaways.

Stage 1 – Ultimate Team.


Ultimate Team is the game mode you will spend most hours in grinding for trophies & a better team.
The toughest trophies you will be working towards are:

– Vision for Division (Play a game in Division 4 or higher in FUT Division Rivals).
– Top Flight Football (Earn 2000 FUT Champions points to achieve your first qualification for FUT Champions Weekend League).
– Fan Favourite (Reach 200 club appearances with a player in FIFA Ultimate Team).

For “Vision for Division”, you will be playing online against other players. If you win, you gain points, but if you lose, you lose your points just as quickly. It is important to have a good team when attempting this. More information on this in the trophy itself.

Stage 2 – VOLTA Squads.


VOLTA Squads is a new addition to FIFA and is comparable with FIFA Street football as we know it from the earlier years. Within this game mode you will be working towards the following trophies:

– VOLTA’s Finest (Reach Division 3 in VOLTA Squads)

It is advised to complete the “The Debut” storyline first so that you can earn some better players before playing online.

Note: When playing your placement matches, do close FIFA21 when losing and it will not count as a lost/played game. This way, you should reach Division 3 or higher right away.

More information on this in the trophy itself.


The Great Achiever
Unlock all other trophies (excluding additional content trophies).


Legendary
Win the UEFA Champions League Final.

For this trophy, select the following game mode:
Play -> Kick Off -> EUFA Champions League -> UCL Final.

You can play it against a CPU on beginner or against a second controller.


Vision for Division
Play a game in Division 4 or higher in FUT Division Rivals.

When you start playing FUT you have to do online placement matches in order to get a ranking. Before doing so, make sure to play some Squad battles, as those will reward you with coins & weekly rewards. Do not play more than 30 Squad Battles, as doing so will rank you in Division 6.

It is possible that you will be Division 4 or higher (3, 2, 1) when completing your placement matches. When so, play 1 online match and this trophy will pop.

If you did not reach Division 4 or higher, you must play online and earn points to progress the division ladder. Each win will give you points, the better your opponent the more points you earn. Losing will lose you points, the lower your opponent is placed, the more points you will lose.

The required points you need for Division 4 are 1250.

Note: You can play this game mode with 2 players online. The other one can boost you, having you earn more points. If the second player is already in Division 4 or higher, it will not earn you this trophy, you will have to reach the required division yourself for the trophy to pop.

In order to increase your odds, it is important to improve your team. This can be done in multiple ways:

– Buying players from the transfer market
– Competing in Squad Battles (offline) and earning a high ranking.
– Competing in Division matches and earning a high ranking.
– Doing Squad Battle Challenges.
– Doing Objectives & Milestones to earn (Event) players.

At times, EA does social events that can earn you packs and great players, too!


VOLTA’s Finest
Reach Division 3 in VOLTA Squads.

It is advised to complete the “The Debut” storyline first so that you can earn some better players before playing online.

When playing your placement matches, do close FIFA21 when losing and it won’t count as a lost/played game. This way, you should reach Division 3 or higher right away.

Already placed in a lower division?

Volta squads work with a 2-week competition mode. Meaning you have 2 weeks to play enough games to earn a promotion to the next division. How many games you need to win is different for everybody. Just keep an eye on a green arrow that will appear in your top right corner when you’ve earned a promotion.

After the 2 week period, you’ll promote to the next division. Repeat until you reach Division 3. It’s highly advised to quit FIFA21 when losing, otherwise, you’ll need to play way more games, so make sure you only win!

Quitting will give the opponent a win and will prevent you from losing. Win-Win for both!
