The complete FIFA 23 chemistry styles list explained

The FIFA 23 chemistry styles list is identical to last year, despite your team now being rated out of 33 rather than 100. In FIFA 23, players can earn up to three chemistry points each – and by maximising those individual points, you also increase the effectiveness of chemistry styles cards. But what exactly are they, and which specific stats does each card type affect? All is outlined here, in your FIFA 23 chemistry styles guide.

What are FIFA 23 chemistry styles?

FIFA 23 features 22 different chemistry styles cards, all of which can be found in packs and purchased off the transfer market. Also available are GK Basic and Basic, which effectively reset an individual’s stats to the default ones on his card. 

Each chemistry style buffs either two or three main attributes, as outlined by the third and fourth columns in the tables below. Hunter and Shadow are the hardest to come by (and therefore most expensive on the transfer market) given that both award a considerable pace boost. 

These are all of the FIFA 23 chemistry styles in the game, and the maximum possible buff when applied to a player on full ‘chem’.

I’m GamesRadar’s sports editor, and obsessed with NFL, WWE, MLB, AEW, and occasionally things that don’t have a three-letter acronym – such as Chvrches, Bill Bryson, and Streets Of Rage 4. (All the Streets Of Rage games, actually.) Even after three decades I still have a soft spot for Euro Boss on the Amstrad CPC 464+.
