Who wouldn’t want to wow the crowd and commentators with an epic, stylish goal shot? The FIFA franchise has never shied away from shots full of flair, and their latest game is no different. But just because you can show off, that doesn’t always mean you should. You must know the right way and time to perform such a shot if you want to hit the net rather than embarrass yourself. We’ll show you how to use your skill to perform a Flair Shot in FIFA 23 as well as the right time to do it.
How to Perform a Flair Shot in FIFA 23
In FIFA 23, you can perform any skill shot to create a dynamic and exciting play style. One of these shots always fun to use and see is a Flair Shot.
As its name implies, a Flair Shot holds a bit more style and substance compared to your average shot. That’s about it though. It won’t guarantee you a goal. Honestly, if performed wrong, it can cause you to fire to the side, or worse, right to your opponents instead of the net.
So, how do you perform a Flair Shot in FIFA 23? Well, we have the buttons you must select for the controllers below:
- PlayStation: L2 + O
- Xbox: LT + B
- Nintendo: ZL + A
You can’t just effectively utilize a Flair Shot in FIFA 23 by pressing the buttons though. First off, you want to be particular with what character you try this shot with. Be sure the character’s stats are impressive enough to pull off skill shots. This includes stats like ball control, agility, and finishing.
Additionally, make sure you time it correctly. Sometimes, a Flair Shot is fun to show off, especially if you’re already well ahead of the opponent team. Other times, a Flair Shot can actually help you throw off a defender. And sometimes a Flair Shot is simply unnecessary as it runs the risk of losing the ball.
Also, some players have mentioned scoring with a Flair Shot may be bugged. In this case, try performing it within the 5m box instead to see if that makes a difference.
FIFA 23 is available in Early Access with a full release on September 30 for PS5 and PS4 consoles, Xbox One and Series consoles, Nintendo Switch, PC, and Google Stadia.
