Toward the end of FIFA 20, EA introduced the ‘Rarity’ filter when searching on the transfer market. Whereas before you could only search by Bronze, Silver, Gold, or Special, the new Rarity filter allowed you to search by specific card type (TOTW, FUT Birthday, TOTSSF, TOTY, etc). This change had substantial implications in regards to sniping.

For example, say you wanted to target UCL Rares (these were required a few times this year and shot up in price). Before the Rarity filter, you could put a Quality filter of special, but this would return UCL Commons as well. With the Rarity filter, you can specifically choose UCL Rares to filter out any other unwanted cards.

It is difficult to say now exactly which sniping filters will work best when FIFA 21 launches, but keep this option in mind. Experiment with different combinations and attempt to find something that hits frequently. As always, you can refer to my Sniping Filters page for ideas, too.
