Players have been experiencing issues with FIFA 21 FUT Champs Weekend League rewards, as Red Player Picks from Team of the Week 7 (TOTW 7) were made basically useless by a strange bug. 

The game has been released for just over a month now and players enjoying building up their squad in FUT. One of the many reasons FIFA players love FUT is the freedom of choosing different players and making a unique team, bolstered by rewards each weekend.

However, as with any new release, FIFA 21 has been experiencing some issues since its launch in October. One of which involved players being unable to use Red Picks from the latest TOTW squad, meaning the likes of Lionel Messi, Bruno Fernandes, and others who received boosted stats are impossible to play with.

FIFA 21 FUT Champs rewards bug discovered

The issue with FIFA 21 FUT Champs Red Picks surfaced on November 12, where developers confirmed they were looking into the situation shortly after rolling out their rewards.

The initial response from the FIFA community was one of frustration and anger, as you might expect. Despite this, EA acknowledged the bug and is currently working to fix the issue.

Their first tweet on the FIFA Direct Communication Twitter told fans to stay tuned for updates, and there has since been a second post.

Update: Issue resolved

A recent tweet has revealed that the issue with Red Picks from TOTW has been solved.

The only pick that can still not be used is 85 rated GK Castreels, which is still under investigation.

It’s good news that the majority of Red Picks are fixed, but FIFA players looking to use Castreels will have to wait a little longer.

We’ll update this article with the latest news on the topic.

Building up a solid squad on FIFA 21’s Ultimate Team can be a difficult task, particularly when you’re looking for players who can consistently score goals. To solve this, we’ve put together a list of the best strikers in FIFA 21 to suit any budget and every style of play.

One of the reasons why FIFA’s Ultimate Team mode is so popular is the freedom of choice people have when building their squads. Although the meta certainly influences which players are used more than others, at the end of the day, a lot of it comes down to preference and what you’re personally looking for.

Despite this, when it comes to picking strikers, there are so many players to choose from on the market. This is especially true when you don’t have the cash to spend on the best players in the game.

That’s why we’ve put together a set of lists of the top forwards in FIFA 21 so you can have a clinical finisher upfront, for all sorts of price ranges. Keep in mind, all the players on these lists are standard base cards, not special items.

Prices (taken from FUTBIN) are live and ever-changing, so expect there to be some differences when you search for these cards. These lists are also in no particular order.

In total, we’ve put together three separate lists that cover the fastest strikers, the best forwards, and of course, goalscorers to pick up when you’re on a budget.
