In UFC 5, fighting isn’t the only goal. Things do get tougher as you progress, so leveling up is a must. UFC 5 allows you to do certain challenges, modes, and other things to help you gain XP. The more you get, of course, the faster you level up. This is done via the Punch Card. So let’s find out what this Punch Card is in UFC 5.
UFC 5: Punch Card – Explained
This feature works somewhat like a Battle Pass in that it changes weekly, but it’s free. The Punch Card each week will feature different challenges like playing in certain arenas. As you progress through the Punch Card, you’ll get rewards like new clothes and other gear. The difficulty of the card depends on the challenges, so you might run through it fast or slow. The Punch Card is just a great way for you to keep coming back because there’s something new.
It also seems like the Punch Card gets even more XP-heavy on fight night weekends that coincide with the real sport. If you play UFC 5 with a fight on the usual Saturday, there may be an extra incentive to hop on the game that week. Also, with the topic of XP, you won’t be getting consistent amounts every week. Meaning, that week 1’s XP payout might be lower or higher in the second week.

Best way to level up the Punch Card
I found if you play quick play as opposed to online, you can complete challenges quicker because you can make the fights easy. This way you can farm the progression of the card. The online play is a high-risk-high-reward playstyle, it does give out more XP, but you have to win to get the same amount. If you want to complete the Punch Card fast, I would just play offline.
UFC 5 is available now via Xbox and PlayStation store.
