How to make XP
There are many ways to earn XP. Players can easily play 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 fast. Players can earn a decent amount of ZK (anywhere from 1,000 to 4,000 ZK) per game just by making a few swings on the plate or throwing a few shifts on the pile.
In addition, players can complete daily missions and program missions. From June 4, three program missions can be completed for XP.
- Win 10 games in competitive online modes (Ranked Seasons, Battle Royale, Events) – 5,000 ZK
- Tally 15 homeruns with Topps Now or Monthly Award players in online modes (Ranked Seasons, Battle Royale, Events) – 5,000 XP
- Find 20 strokes with any Legend or Flashback pitchers in online modes (Ranked Seasons, Battle Royale, Events) – 7,500 XP
More missions may be added in the near future, so watch out for them.
MLB The Show 21 players can also earn ZK 50,000 by completing a collection with three 2nd inning bosses. And 25,000 XP can be completed by entering and completing the 3. Inning Pizza Conquest.
