MLB The Show 21 Conquest Hidden Rewards Guide


The plethora of sports titles available on the market has pushed online play with friends for a little over a decade already, which is why it feels so off to play any of their game's other modes. Not that they're necessarily bad. Rather, it's that the other modes are not as good. For MLB The Show 21, one of these others modes happens to be called Conquest.

Conquest is considered the best way to get XP and Stubs fast for free in MLB The Show 21.

The primary Diamond Dynasty mode in the latest mainline installment in the long-running baseball simulation franchise isn't exactly the easiest to explain, so we'll leave that to another day (hopefully). Instead, what we're here to talk about is all of the hidden rewards that you can find in Conquest in MLB The Show 21.

So, without further delay, let's get started.

Where Are the Conquest Hidden Rewards in MLB The Show 21?

Collecting all the hidden rewards from all six Conquest maps in MLB The Show 21 will give you 7,250 stubs, 850XP, 19 Standard Packs, 4 Ballin' Packs, and a Ricky Henderson card. While this isn't much, it's an excellent start for players who really want to get the most out of the Diamond Dynasty experience.

Use Programs to Get More Free Stubs in MLB The Show 21

To get even more in-game currency and items, you can work on the Programs in MLB The Show 21 via the "View Program" tab on the Loadout menu.

The Programs are essentially progression meters in MLB The Show 21 that give out rewards based on the objectives that you have already completed in the game. For example, XP determines your progression in the Inning Program, which then rewards you with Stubs the more you progress. However, other Programs in MLB The Show 21 also give away Stubs. This includes Daily Moments, Team Affinity Programs, Player Grams, as well as by upgrading Ballplayer Loadouts.

By paying attention to the Tasks found at the bottom of each Program, you all but guarantee that you're making the most out of your playtime as you make progress through MLB The Show 21.

How Much Are Stubs in MLB The Show 21?
