How to do All the New Skill Moves in FIFA 23

FIFA 23 would be last last title under the FIFA name. We would still have a football game developed by EA but with a different name from next year. Due to which I feel FIFA this year would be big with a lot more content than what we get normally.

The game features the new Hypermotion 2 tech which gives us hundreds of new animations. Star players have their movement animations properly mapped in the game along with their playstyle which makes the experience this year even more unique.

Guide for the New Skill Moves Added to FIFA 23 :

Like every year EA would introduce new skill moves in the game. Over the years I feel FIFA has focused more on skilling chaining than actual gameplay. To be honest. even I do a thousand skill chains in the game and somehow it makes me feel that without these skills moves the game becomes way to difficult for me.

On a serious note this is more of a downside than a plus point. Even the pro players depend a lot on skill moves to actually score because some of them are way too effective than the rest. FIFA 22 had been all about the Elasticos and the Reverse Elasticos which were the top two broken skill moves in the game.

Normally the new skill moves which are added to the game happen to be very effective until they get nerfed. Like the directional nutmegs in FIFA 21. This year we have a few pretty nice and realistic looking skill moves added to the game. Lets talk about them and how we could perform them in game.

And yes, when I talk about left and right in the guide I mean left and right of the player you are controlling. Similarly when I say forward and backward I mean in front of the player and behind the player you are controlling.

Stutter Feint :

This is a very realistic looking Feint skill move and I wonder why it was not added earlier. It more like doing a fake exit towards one side and accelerating away from the opposite direction. It is a 3 star skill move and in order to perform this move do this :

  • PlayStation : L2 + flick RS left/right then flick RS right/left
  • Xbox : LT + flick RS left/right then flick RS right/left
  • PC (Keyboard) : Jockey/Shield Ball button + press RS button left/right then press button RS right/left

Heel to Ball Roll :

The heel to heel flick was one of the best skill moves last year and the year before that. This time we have a nice modified Heel to Ball Roll skill which requires a 4 star skill rating. Pretty effective and more controlled than the Heel to Heel flick. Instead of pushing the ball forward you kind of roll it forward which gives you more control of the skill move. This is how you do it :

  • PlayStation : L1+ flick RS forward then flick RS backward
  • Xbox : LB + flick RS forward then flick RS backward
  • PC (Keyboard) : Player Run/Modifier button + press RS button forward then press button RS backward

Heel Fake :

The Heel Fake is a 5 star skill move. We all know how useful the 5 star skills are and the might just be one of them. This is a skill move that you have to perform while standing. Even if you move a little bit you would not be able to pull this off. You may want to use a fake shot ball stop or just press L1/LT/Player Run button to stop the ball facing the goal and then do the skill move.

  • PlayStation : L2 + flick RS left/right then flick RS right/left
  • Xbox : LT + flick RS left/right then flick RS right/left
  • PC (Keyboard) : Jockey/Shield Ball button + press RS button left/right then press button RS right/left

First Time Feint Turn :

Another one of the super effective skill move which on requires a 1 star skill rating. This move is kind of a manual feint first touch.

  • PlayStation : L1 +R1 + flick RS back
  • Xbox : LB + RB + flick RS back
  • PC (Keyboard) : Player Run/Modifier button + Sprint Button + press RS button backwards.

Skilled Bridge : 

Although the skill move was there in the last game but this time the controls are a bit different.

  • PlayStation : L2+ flick RS forward then flick RS backward
  • Xbox : LT + flick RS forward then flick RS backward
  • PC (Keyboard) : Jockey/Shield Ball button + press RS button forward then press button RS backward

Advanced or New Fake Shots :

You can now use to advanced fake shot which is L1/LB/ Player Run button + Shoot/Cross/Long ball button followed by the Pass button and exit in any direction you want.

  • PlayStation : L1+ Fake Shot then Flick RS Left or Right
  • Xbox : LB + Fake Shot then Flick RS Left or Right
  • PC (Keyboard) : Player Run/Modifier button + Fake Shot then press RS button left or right

Along with all these skill moves you would also have Left Footed skill moves which are a huge addition to the game this year.

There you go, this is it for the new skill moves in FIFA 23 this year. This guide will be updated if there are as new skill moves are added or existing skill moves are changed.
