Short/Ground Pass (X / A)

Often called a ground pass, a short pass sends the ball quickly to another teammate near to each other.
Lobbed Pass (X + X / A + A)

An aerial pass called a lob pass is used to send the ball long distances and at a high angle to a teammate. The same pass method can also be used for crossing the ball.

Low Cross (Square + Square / X + X)

When passing the ball into the opponent’s box, you can double-tap the Lob Pass button to perform a low-range cross.

Through Pass

A through pass enables your offensive players to get the ball beyond defenders by traveling through an open space — which the game was shot.

Threaded Through Pass (R1 + square / RB + Y)

Through passes are more straight and allow the ball to bounce, which gives your passing more perspective.

Driven Ground Pass (R1 + X / RB + A)

This is a ground pass that is powered and faster than a standard ground pass. Pass receivers need to exert more effort to control this type of pass due to its higher accuracy.

Lofted Ground Pass

The lofted or short ground pass is designed to avoid interceptions by defenders by flying low and close to the ground.

Lofted Through Pass

It is a pass that goes straight and lets the ball bounce so that it gives perspective to your pass.

Lobbed Through Pass

It is a combination of a through ball and lob pass that goes over the head of your opponent’s defender.

Driven Lobbed Through Pass

A lobbed-through pass is straighter, and the ball bounces so it adds more perspective to your pass

Driven Lob Pass / Driven Cross

The power and pace of a lob pass are higher than a ground pass.

High Lob (L1 + square / LB + X)

You can use a  high lob pass with more height when your strikers are tall to bypass your opponent’s defenders and goalkeeper.

Flair Pass

This ground pass is less accurate than Driven Passes, but it is more powerful.

Flair Lob

Here, more height is gained by passing a fair lob than a high lob.
