FC 25 Chemistry Styles

Ultimate Team Styles

Chemistry Style Items allow you to specify which attributes will be impacted by chemistry in FIFA 25. These items can be applied to any player, tailoring their attributes to suit the needs of your squad. They do not alter the chemistry numbers but instead redistribute the stats that receive chemistry boosts.

You can apply a Chemistry Style to a player multiple times, but only one Style can be active on a player at a time. The chosen style remains in effect until you apply a new one. When a player item is traded, the buyer inherits the active style.

There are twenty-four chemistry styles available: nineteen for outfield players and five for goalkeepers. Outfield player chemistry styles can only be applied to outfield players, while goalkeeper chemistry styles are exclusive to goalkeepers. Special players, such as Heroes, Icons, and loan players, can also benefit from chemistry styles.

The Best Chemistry Styles

When choosing a chemistry style, you must consider many factors, including price, position, formation, play style, squad, and player attributes.

In the following, we suggest the best chemistry styles for each position, so it makes you quickly pick the right one.

  1. Glove
  2. Basic
  3. Wall
In our assessment, the priority of attributes for goalkeepers is as follows: reflexes, diving, handling, positioning, speed, and kicking. As no chemistry style enhances both reflexes and diving simultaneously, our top pick is the Glove style. It enhances diving, handling, and positioning. While other styles may increase attributes like speed or kicking, which are less critical for us, we often consider the Basic style as a viable option.

  1. Sentinel
  2. Anchor
  3. Shadow
It’s widely recognized that defending and heading prowess are fundamental attributes for every center-back (CB). Additionally, pace can also play a significant role. Therefore, we consider Sentinel and Anchor as the two most suitable styles for center-backs. The Sentinel style is recommended for central CBs in 5xx formations or defenders with high defensive work rates and low attacking work rates. On the other hand, the Anchor style is best suited for other center-backs.

  1. Shadow
  2. Powerhouse
  3. Guardian
Fullbacks are essential for both defensive solidity and contributing to attacking plays down the wings. To excel in this role, they require strong defensive, pace, and passing attributes. The Shadow style is highly recommended for fullbacks, enhancing their defensive capabilities and pace. However, if you tend to rely heavily on crossing, the PowerHouse style might be more suitable. This style is ideal for players with high heading stats, enabling them to excel in aerial situations.

Defensive Midfielders
  1. Backbone
  2. Powerhouse
  3. Shadow
Selecting a chemistry style for a defensive midfielder can be challenging as it varies based on their role within the team and the formation being used. A common issue with defensive midfielders is their lack of pace, which can hinder their effectiveness. In such instances, the Shadow style can be advantageous to boost their speed. However, we consider Backbone and Powerhouse to be the top choices for players in this position, offering a balanced enhancement of their attributes.

Center Midfielders
  1. Artist
  2. Maestro
  3. Deadeye
Selecting a chemistry style for a center midfielder can be complex, as it depends on various factors. However, for most players in this position, the Artist and Maestro styles are ideal choices. These styles primarily enhance passing and dribbling attributes, which are crucial for midfielders. Additionally, if you enjoy taking long shots, the Deadeye style can also be a favorable option.

  1. Engine
  2. Catalyst
  3. Hunter
The Engine style is our preferred choice for wingers, whether they play on the right or left side. It offers a balanced boost to speed, dribbling, and passing, which align well with the demands of players in this position. This enables them to excel in both crossing and cutting into the area. However, depending on individual factors, some players may benefit more from the Catalyst style.

  1. Best Style: Finisher
  2. Runner-Up: Hawk
  3. Special Mention: Hunter
Depending on your playstyle, there are five chemistry styles suitable for forwards:
– Finisher to those who play as a reference in the opposite box;
– Hawk to those who also want mobility;
– Hunter to those who play in counter and don’t like to cross to the box;
– Marksman to skillers;
– and Sniper to very fast forwards.
Frequently Asked Questions
FC 25 chemistry styles are consumable items that allow you to choose which attributes will be affected by the chemistry.

There are a total of twenty-four Football Club chemistry styles available: nineteen designed for outfield players and five for goalkeepers. Outfield player chemistry styles can be applied to any outfield player, while goalkeeper chemistry styles are exclusive to goalkeepers.

These items permanently change a player’s Chemistry Style until a different one is applied to him.
FC 25 chemistry styles will have the maximum effect if a player has the highest chemistry possible. However, if he has the lowest chemistry, it doesn’t make sense to apply him a style item since it won’t make any difference.
There are three things about FC 25 chemistry styles you can find on a player’s item:

  • The name of the style that is active in that player;

There are several factors to consider before selecting a chemistry style. It can be a challenging decision, but ultimately, it’s up to you. Here are some points to pay attention to:

  • Price
    The cost of chemistry styles is often overlooked. Teams with tight budgets should be mindful of this, as prices can range from 150 coins to 5,000 coins. However, it’s essential to note that higher prices don’t necessarily mean better styles. While Hunter and Shadow styles tend to be the most expensive, the Basic style is often the most practical choice.

  • Position
    Consider the player’s position when choosing a chemistry style. Defensive styles like Sentinel, Guardian, and Anchor are typically applied to defenders, while attacking styles like Sniper, Deadeye, and Finisher are more suitable for forwards. Midfielders may benefit from styles like Artist, Powerhouse, or Engine. Goalkeeper styles are exclusively for goalkeepers.

  • Formation
    The formation also influences the choice of chemistry style. Players in the same position but different formations may have varying needs. For example, central defenders in a 4xx formation may require pace, while those in a 5xx formation prioritize defensive and heading stats. Analyze each player’s role within the formation carefully.

  • Play Style
    Everyone has a unique play style in Football Club. Some prefer wing play, while others favor a central approach. Consider your preferred play style when selecting a chemistry style. It’s essential to align the style with how you utilize each player on the pitch.

  • Squad Composition
    Consider the overall squad dynamics when choosing a chemistry style. If certain attributes are already well-covered by other players in the squad, prioritize enhancing different attributes for balance and effectiveness.

  • Player’s Attributes
    Understand the player’s existing attributes before applying a chemistry style. Boosting attributes that are already maxed out (e.g., 99) would be redundant. Tailor the chemistry style to complement and enhance the player’s existing strengths and weaknesses.
One of the most common dilemmas in choosing a chemistry style is whether to boost the player’s lowest stats for balance or enhance their already strong attributes to make them stand out even more. There’s no one-size-fits-all answer to this question.

In general, players tend to opt for boosting their highest attributes because these are often the most crucial for their position. For instance, players like Mbappé prioritize enhancing their attacking prowess rather than focusing on defensive stats, which they may not need in their position.

However, there are exceptions. In cases where a player’s deficiencies significantly impact their effectiveness, it may be more beneficial to address those weaknesses. Take the example of Harry Kane, a formidable striker with exceptional shooting and physical attributes but lacking in pace. In such instances, applying a chemistry style to improve his speed may be more prudent than further enhancing his already strong shooting and physical abilities.

Ultimately, the decision on which chemistry style to choose should be based on individual preferences and the specific needs of your team. It’s a personal choice that depends on the player’s position, play style, and overall strategy.
