FIFA 21 Rulebreakers Team 1 LIVE: card boosts, SBCs, how it works

EA SPORTS has begun officially unveiling this year’s Halloween promo event for FIFA 21 Ultimate Team, and it looks like we’ll actually be getting something a little out of the ordinary in FIFA 21… “Rulebreakers.” Here’s everything we know so far.

The last few years have seen Ultimate Scream rule the last weeks of October. The Halloween themed promo was trotted out in Ultimate Team for the last three years, but the special event’s ‘reign of terror’ seems to be coming to an end.

Instead, a new “Rulebreakers” promo is coming soon.  EA SPORTS teased the event on Twitter on Oct. 21, with only three letters ⁠— two Rs and an S ⁠— and a fragmented FUT card. Soon after, Dexerto data miner FutWatch confirmed the hidden word would eventually spell out ‘Rulebreakers.’

As has been the case for most promos since the start of FIFA 20, this one consists of two separate squads of players, the first of which was officially unveiled on Oct. 23.

FIFA 21 Rulebreakers Team 1

The full Team 1 for the Rulebreakers promo in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team.

The first set of Rulebreakers cards is full of impressive cards, including the likes of Harry Kane, Dries Mertens, Douglas Costa, and more. As explained below, these cards have been reworked in a way where some of their stats have transferred over to other categories.

  • Harry Kane
  • Aymerick Laporte
  • Douglas Costa
  • Dries Mertens
  • Radja Nainggolan
  • Lucas Ocampos
  • Marcos Llorente
  • Manuel Lazzari
  • Boubacar Kamara
  • Denzel Dumfries
  • Andre

FIFA 21 Rulebreakers: how does it work?

Essentially, the idea behind Rulebreakers is to take cards that have a concentration of stats in certain categories and move them around to boost another aspect of that player.

For example, in the players listed above, the likes of Harry Kane, who is known for supreme shooting but not a lot of pace, has seen some of those shooting stats shifted to boost his pace all the way up to 91, which is considerably higher than almost every card he’s ever had in FIFA history.

Similarly, Manchester City centerback Laporte now features a whopping 81 pace, a chunk of which was taken from his defending.

The first team features several SBCs, all of which we’ve listed below along with links to full guides that include the requirements, cheapest solutions, in-game stats, total cost, and everything else you need to unlock them.
