All players will start with this basic chemistry style attached to their card. This, basically, means that an overall increase is applied to your players stats presuming that you’re running decent overall team chemistry links.

Forwards /Attacking styles
Sniper – increases shooting and dribbling stats – position to use on – RW, LW & CF
Finisher – increases shooting and physical stats – position to use on – ST
Deadeye – increases shooting and passing stats – position to use on – CAM, RW, LW, CF & ST
Marksman – increases shooting, dribbling and physical stats – position to use on – CAM, CF & ST
Hawk – increases pace, shooting and physical stats – position to use on – RW, LW & ST
Hunter – increases pace and shooting stats – position to use on – RW, LW & CF

Midfield / Attacking & Defensive styles
Artist – increases dribbling and passing stats
Architect – increases physical and passing stats – position to use on – CM & CAM
Powerhouse – increases defending and passing stats – position to use on – CDM
Maestro – increases dribbling, shooting and passing stats – position to use on – CM & CAM
Engine – increases pace, dribbling and passing stats – position to use on – RW, LW & CF
Catalyst – increases pace and passing stats – position to use on – CDM, CM & CAM


Defenders / Defensive styles
Sentinel – increases defending and physical stats – position to use on – RB, LB & CB
Guardian – increases defending and dribbling stats – position to use on – RWB, LWB, RB & LB
Gladiator – increases defending and shooting stats – position to use on – RWB, LWB, CDM
Backbone – increases defending, physical and passing stats – position to use on – CDM & CB
Anchor – increases pace, defending and physical stats – position to use on – RWB, LWB, RB, LB & CB
Shadow – increases pace and defending stats – position to use on – RWB, LWB, RB, LB & CB

Goalkeeper styles
Wall – increases diving, handling and kicking stats
Shield – increases reflexes, speed and kicking stats
Cat – increases reflexes, speed and positioning stats
Glove – increases diving, handling and positioning stats

The chemistry styles that increase 2 different stats rather than 3 will go up between 1-3 points depending on the level of your overall team chemistry. The one’s with 3 such as Anchor and Backbone will go up a maximum of 2.

EA have made it even easier for you to fit Legends into your teams this year with the inclusion of Legends Chemistry. To explain, in very basic form, it basically strengthens the chemistry between them and today’s players which means that every player will match leagues with FUT Legends. This means that they will have an orange link with ALL players. Now you only need to pair up the nationality between a player and a legend to create the strong green link on the pitch.

So, to summarise if you are building a squad with all new Legend Giggs (who will be hard to pair up because he’s Welsh, he’ll have a medium connection with Willian but a strong connection with his fellow countryman, Gareth Bale. It doesn’t matter about the league, now.

Use these FUT 16 chemistry style tipsto help make your players improve their performance for your ultimate teams.

  2. Toprak says:

    If I give a player a chemistry style which adds 3+ to his physical, does it apply to all the qualities within physical? If I needed more stamina, strength and acceleration, for instance.
