How to earn XP
There are many ways to earn XP. Players can play the various game modes in MLB The Show 21 and earn XP after each game, including 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 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 July 1, four Program Missions can be completed for XP.
- Win 10 games in competitive online modes (Ranked Seasons, Battle Royale, Events) – 5,000 XP
- Tally 20 hits with Prospect, Future Stars, or Rookie Series players in online modes (Ranked Seasons, Battle Royale, Events) – 5,000 XP
- Tally 5 saves with any Diamond pitchers in online modes (Ranked Seasons, Battle Royale, Events) – 3,750 XP
- Tally 15 strikeouts with an Diamond pitchers in online modes (Ranked Seasons, Battle Royale, Events) – 3,750 XP
Other missions may be added in the near future, so be on the lookout for those.
Collections can also be used towards earning XP. The Show users can earn XP by completing the collections for Evolution Nelson Cruz and Whitey Ford. Also, MLB The Show 21 players can earn 50,000 XP by completing a collection featuring the three 3rd Inning bosses.
4th Inning Conquest
Here’s a quick look at the 4th Inning Conquest map, which takes the shape of the American flag:
25,000 XP can be completed by entering and completing the 4th Inning Stars and Stripes Conquest.
Eight teams are in this map, be on the lookout for additional conquests and collections that will drop throughout the program. You’ll also want to keep an eye out for the 4th Inning Showdown Challenge, which usually offers 35,000 XP towards program progress.
The 4th Inning Program is slated to end on July 30.
