FIFA 22 Effective Dribbling Guide

How to Dribble Effectively in FIFA 22

Before we get to dribbling, you must be familiar with the controls. Speaking of controls, make sure that you adjust the camera and other settings to get a better grip on them. With that said, you will want to learn the basic controls first in order to master dribbling. Here are some of the basics:

  • Carrying the Ball (LS)
  • Skill Moves (RS)
  • Protecting the Ball (L2/LT)
  • Fast Dribbling (Hold R2/RT)
  • Slow Dribbling (Hold L2+R2/LT+RT)

After you’ve learned the basic controls, we suggest practicing some advanced moves such as:

  • Face up Dribbling: (L2/LT + R2/RT)
  • Drag Back: (R1/RB + L Flick LS down)
  • Strafe Dribbling: (L1 + L / (LB + L)
  • Fake Pass: (Square then X + direction) / (X then A + direction)
  • Fake Shot: (Circle then X + direction) / (B then A + direction)

Do not be discouraged if you cannot pull off these moves immediately. Getting used to them can certainly take some time and we suggest practicing them against CPU. A major tip that you should follow is to have more dribblers in your team. This will allow you to perform 4-star or even 5-star moves if you have people like Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo.

If you are playing FUT and are just starting out, we recommend trying out one of our budget FUT teams so you can get the best of both worlds.
