Learn All Dribbles and Skill Moves in FIFA 22: Step-by-Step Guide

best skills in FIFA 22 game

Dribbling is one of the key components of the game of football and this has not changed in FIFA 22. It allows you to beat your defender and create that 1 on 1 scene with the goalkeeper, giving you a higher chance of scoring. Meanwhile, this year’s game utilizes HyperMotion technology, which is vastly different from those of previous generations. For this, the EA Sports game has been known to be challenging to get used to. Nonetheless, in modes such as Ultimate Team (FUT), Career Mode, and Pro Clubs, dribbling can either make or break a match.

As such, the importance of making the most of players who are able to dribble is paramount, be it Mohamed Salah from Liverpool, Heung-min Son from Tottenham, or Lionel Messi from Paris Saint-Germain. It always helps when such a player uses his weak and strong foot well. Having the ball at your feet is one thing, how to maximize its potential is another.

The dribbling techniques you can use in FIFA 22 range from basic to advanced ones. A game player can dribble with control basics as follow:

  • Pull or Push the Left Stick (LS) to take the ball past your opponent
  • Pull or Push the Right Stick (RS) button, and you can perform a skill move that allows you to dribble past players
  • Hold (L2/LT) button, and you can protect the ball from your opponent
  • Hold (R2/RT) buttons to dribble past your opponent fastly
  • Hold (L2+R2/LT+RT) buttons to dribble past your opponent slowly

Once you are comfortable with the basics of dribbling techniques in FIFA 22, move on to some more advanced techniques as follows:

  • Face up Dribbling: (L2/LT + R2/RT)

  • Strafe Dribbling: (L1 + L / (LB + L)

You may need some time to master this, but once your confidence grows, you will be able to incorporate a majority of the skill moves into your arsenal.
