The weekly solo challenges and Coin Up challenges are back this year in Madden 25 Ultimate Team.
I loved the Coin Up challenges last year and I’m glad they’re back.
So here’s the deal with Coin Up challenges. You play 2 games and you get a player card from one of the teams you played against in the challenge games. In the first Coin Up challenge this week it’s Demarius Thomas. In the collections screen, there’s a “collection” of only this one card. The reward is another card, from the other team you played in the challenge game. In the first Coin Up challenge this week it’s Ray Rice.
The purpose of this “Collection” is that you get to choose which player you want to keep. When this week’s actual games are over there will be 2 collections you can trade in the card you have for coins. The more touchdowns the players score in the real-life NFL game this week, the more coins their card will be worth be worth. So basically you get to bet on which player will have a better week. It’s like a mini game of fantasy football. Last year it was actually a player card you could use to help your team, but alas no more.
After the real life game is done, they will add a collection for each player that will be worth a number of coins based on how well they did in the game. This will be where you can trade in the card for coins.
Unfortunately, the games are against pretty good teams and on All-Pro difficulty so they can be a little hard with a bad team.
There are some cool weekly challenges too where you can earn a reward pack. It seams like reward packs are what it’s all about this year in terms of getting good players and collections, so if these are only around for a week, then try to get them done.
They actually changed how you cash in Coin-Up challenge rewards. Check it out here.
