How to earn XP
There are many ways to earn XP. Players can simply play the various game modes in MLB The Show 21 and earn XP after each game. This includes Road to the Show games, which can be a quick way to get XP quickly. Players can earn a good amount of XP (anywhere from 1,000-4,000 XP) per game just by taking a few swings at the plate, or throwing a few innings on the mound.
Additionally, players can complete Daily Missions, as well as Program missions. As of June 4, three Program Missions can be completed for XP.
- Win 10 games in competitive online modes (Ranked Seasons, Battle Royale, Events) – 5,000 XP
- Tally 15 home runs with Topps Now or Monthly Award players in online modes (Ranked Seasons, Battle Royale, Events) – 5,000 XP
- Tally 20 strikeouts with any Legend or Flashback pitchers in online modes (Ranked Seasons, Battle Royale, Events) – 7,500 XP
Other missions may be added in the near future, so be on the lookout for those.
Also, MLB The Show 21 players can earn 50,000 XP by completing a collection featuring the three 2nd Inning bosses. And, 25,000 XP can be completed by entering and completing the 3rd Inning Pizza Conquest.
