FIFA 22 – 41212(2) Best & Meta Custom Tactics | FUT Formation Guide

We all love the 4-1-2-1-2 formation don’t we. Even last year this was definitely one of the best attacking formations you could use. Let me tell you that the 4-1-2-1-2 (2) or narrow is even more overpowered this year . With the passing being drastically improved over last year , this formation is more dangerous offensively than ever. You can literally keep one touch passing until you reach the box and the shoot and score.

Defensive Tactics :

  • Defensive Style should be Balanced. With manual jockey mandatory online I would rather not use Press After Possession Loss or any other pressure tactics from minute 1 until I master it.
  • Width should be within 45-50
  • Depth should be within 60-65. I would not go 70 since I am still learning manual jockey

Offensive Tactics :

  • Let Build up Play be Balanced . This is perfect for this formation since players will come short as well as run into spaces depending on the situation.
  • Chance Creation should be Possession. The 41212 had always been a formation for quick passing. Until FIFA 20 and 21 where we all started using long ball with this formation. This formation creates triangles automatically and therefore it is best we use possession.
  • Width should work best at 55-60 since it is a narrow formation.
  • Players in Box should be at 7 bars. Since we want the team to move into the box as a unit. For more options in and near the box for quicker passing.
  • Corners and Free Kicks should be a 2 bars

What Player Instructions should you use ?

  • Both the CB on Stay Back While Attacking
  • LB and RB on Balanced Attack and Overlap
  • CDM on Stay Back While Attacking and Cover Center
  • RCM and LCM on Balanced and Cover Center 
  • CAM on Stay Forward only
  • LS and RS on Stay Forward only

There you go, try out this tactic and you will see the difference in your game. I am literally dominating opponents with amazing 85 and above rated squad with my 77 and 78 rated players. If the guide was helpful do let us know in the comment section down below. Enjoy the game.
