FIFA 21 is well underway having been released on 9th October and THIS is how to tell what you’ve got in your pack before the main card is revealed.
Whether you’re grinding through Division Rivals and Squad Battles or opening packs through FIFA points, everyone is desperate to know their pack luck as soon as it opens.
EA Sports has changed the animation from FIFA 20 and it can be difficult to get a grasp for it early on.
Gamers will see board animations for cards above 83 with players walking out if they’re 86+ rated or a Team of the Week.
How to spot a walkout
The trick here is you’ve got to be eagle eyed as soon as you open the pack as you’re looking at the three lights on the left hand side of the screen.
If the pack shows three lights, then it’s not a walkout and it’s onto the next section to see if it’s boards or no boards.
When the first light is out and the other 2 lights show, that’s when you know it’s a walkout and you can expect a big card to pop out next – as shown in the above screenshot.
How to spot a board
If you’ve not got a walkout, the next part is extremely important and you have to be super focused to check what to expect in your pack.
The trick here is to look straight at the back of the tunnel where the stage will appear, but this will show extremely quick.
The two screenshots, above and below, show the difference in not having an 83+ rated player (above) and having an 83+ rated player (below) in your pack.
As stated above, you need to be super quick after checking for a walk out or not as this happens within a matter of seconds.
Once those doors open, focus on the bottom of the tunnel before the firework animation falls down and covers it.
You’re looking for a golden stage at the bottom of the screen for a board, otherwise you’ll seen a black stage with no board.
Hopefully that explains it nice and easy for you and you can now work out what you have in your pack after opening!
