How to shoot in FIFA 23

Each of the shoots in FIFA 23 requires pressing a combination of several buttons. It can be O/B or L1 + O/LB +B or something else, and even the duration of pressing affects the shot. Depending on the combination, you will receive one or another shot, which differ from each other in power, accuracy and relevance in a particular game situation. All players in FIFA 23 have individual abilities that affect their behavior on the field and their performance. Below we list and describe those that directly affect shots.

Parameters that affect the shot:

  • Finishing — this attribute has its value only in the penalty area. The higher this indicator a player has, the more often he will hit the goal. However, this does not mean at all that he will be able to beat the goalkeeper more often. Weight: 45% Finishing;
  • Shot Power —the higher this indicator, the stronger the player is able to kick the ball. The faster the ball flies, the more difficult it is for the goalkeeper to react and catch it. Weight: 20% Finishing;
  • Long Shots —another indicator that has its effect only in the penalty area. Affects the accuracy of the shot Weight: 20% Finishing;
  • Volleys — this indicator, like the previous ones, affects the accuracy and force of impact, but while the ball is in the air Weight: 05% Finishing.;
  • Penalties — this attribute affects the accuracy of the shots you make in the penalty area. It also affects the accuracy of the penalties themselves. Weight: 05% Finishing;
  • Positioning — affects where the player is on the field, and how well he knows how to choose a place for a successful shot. Weight: 05% Finishing.

Below we will consider all the shoots that exist in FIFA 23 and their most correct application.

FIFA 23 Attack Controls

There are several attacks in FIFA 23 that we will go into in detail, but first, let’s remember them all.

Low Shot / Downward Header Shot L1 + R1 + ◯ LB + RB + B

Penalty: Finesse Shot R1 + ◯ RB + B
Penalty: Chip Shot L1 + ◯ LB + B

Seeing such a large number of attacks, it may seem that this is something very complicated. But when we analyze these attacks, you will no longer think so, and your level of play will increase significantly.

Normal Shot

So let’s start with the basic — normal shot. Normal shot allow you to shoot the ball in a straight line. Not the best strategy versus a good goalkeeper, but sometimes that might be enough. Moreover, you can double-tap the same button to trigger shooting minigame, which will affect your shooting efficiency.

Time Your Shot

To control your ball more efficiently you can double-tap the shot button to trigger shooting minigame. This will allow you to choose the angle of attack and perform especially difficult shots that were impossible before.

Long Shot

An interesting shot, which, even from the middle of the field, is able to score a goal. It looks very impressive. You must hold (O/B) to perform this strike. The impact strength bar will appear. The longer you hold the button, the stronger the hit will be. You can also adjust the angle of impact by turning the camera.

Low Driven Shot

The perfect shot for the slow game where you value accuracy the most.Great for one-on-one situations with the goalie

Chip Shot

This kick lifts the ball into the air, which allows you to beat opponents and the goalkeeper

Finesse Shot

The success of this strike depends on your player’s “working” leg. If he executes this kick with his non-primary leg, the kick is doomed to fail. This kick works great at medium to close range, so use it, but watch your foot

Flair Shot

A strike that sacrifices accuracy for power. This shot can be useful if you are sure that the ball will hit the goal and it lacks only the power of the shot.

Driven Shot

A special kick that is used on a free kick to bypass the opponent’s defense

Signature Shot

Recreational shots (L2 O / LT B), are only performed by players who can do them. These kicks include an overhead kick, bicycle kick, volley, or even a scorpion kick. By the way, a shot with the outer part of the foot is a signature shot, too and it’s also required L2 O / LT B

Power Shot in FIFA 23

I would especially like to highlight the shot, which received special significance in FIFA 23. Power shot in FIFA 23 allows you to hit the ball so strongly and accurately that the goalkeeper may not have time to catch it. To perform this strike, you need to hold L1 and L2 and then use O to shoot (LB and RB + B for Xbox).

As soon as you correctly press the necessary buttons, the camera will zoom in on the main player, and a cone will appear from the ball. This is your aim. There is no aim assist here, so you have to choose the right trajectory for the ball yourself.

It’s worth keeping in mind that the Power Shot animation takes a lot longer than other shots, so do it if no one can stop you

How to get better in FIFA 23?

Having studied all the shots, take your time applying each of them. Sometimes a normal shot will be more effective than any feint. Experience and time will tell you when to use a finesse or flair shots. And do not despair, if you did not score a goal, maybe the goalkeeper jumped above his head
