In the holiday spirit, EA Sports has been delighting EA FC 24 players with thrilling Evolution opportunities through the Winter Wildcards promo. As the festivities continue, the EA FC 24 Crossing Crusaders 1 & 2 arrive as another Winter Wildcards treat for players. These Evolutions make fullbacks more lethal going forward. Discover how to maximize these Evolutions by exploring our EA FC 24 Crossing Crusaders Evolutions guide.

EA FC 24 Crossing Crusaders Requirements

Crossing Crusader Evolution allows EA FC 24 players to improve their chosen cards significantly without spending a single Ultimate Team coin or FC point. Unlike other Evolutions, Crossing Crusaders comes in a two-part format. Crossing Crusaders 1 is solely aimed at left-backs, while Crossing Crusaders 2 is a right-back-only offering. You can also utilize cards with LB/RB listed as their secondary positions. Here are the requirements of both Crossing Crusaders Evolutions:

Crossing Crusader 1 Requirements

  • The maximum overall rating is 85.
  • Can have 8 PlayStyles max.
  • LB players are eligible, but secondary LB players also qualify. No CM is allowed, however.
  • The maximum pace rating is 84.
  • The maximum crossing rating is 86.
  • The maximum physicality rating is 85.

Both Crossing Crusader 1 & 2 have two levels of upgrades, so you will have to complete two sets of challenges on each occasion to complete them. That means you must complete four sets of challenges in total to complete both Crossing Crusader 1 & 2.

Evolving David Alaba through Crossing Crusader results in an 88-rated card. Additionally, it can act as the ideal foundation for a 93-rated card through Pep's Legacy.

Jurrien Timber is another good pick for Crossing Crusader. It works best if you first evolve the Gold Rare card via Like a Rock. Finally, you will get an 84-OVR card.

The Hailie Mace Squad Foundations card is the only non-Gold Rare item featured in our selection of the best Crossing Crusader players. The end product is a marvelous 88-rated LB card.

Pierre Kalulu (AC Milan)

If you have had the Pierre Kalulu Gold Rare item for a while, you must have already tried some Evolutions to get an upgraded version of the AC Milan center-back. Crossing Crusader is the optimum choice if you have already completed the Welcome to Evolutions and Detail Oriented Evolutions.

Four of the five players we highlighted here are center-backs, even though Crossing Crusader is a fullback-oriented Evolution. We focused on central defense because the added pace will give you more protection from lightning-fast attackers. The refined passing ability will make it easier to play out from the back, and when necessary, you can push them to the flanks to take advantage of the crossing capability boost.
