FIFA 22 Dribbling

Dribbling is an art in football, but on FIFA 22 it can be incredibly frustrating to master straight away.

Every new game in EA Sports' arsenal can take you a bit of getting used to, especially it comes to owning possession of the ball while playing the likes of Ultimate Team (FUT), Career Mode or even Pro Clubs where this attribute is key when it comes to winning and losing matches.

Whether you are playing with some of the best dribbles in the same such as Liverpool winger Mohamed Salah, Tottenham Hotspur star Heung-min Son or even Paris Saint-Germain darling Lionel Messi - it is important that you make the most of their ability in-game.

Of course, it always helps with the value of their weak foot is better which will greatly help. But when it comes to the star rating of skills - this is vital.

So how can you get the best out of having the ball at your feet? Scroll down to discover our guide to dribbling in FIFA 22.

Before going through this guide, please note that playing on next-gen and previous-gen are vastly different due to the HyperMotion technology that is present in this year's game.

There are both basic and advanced dribbling methods in FIFA 22 that you can use to your advantage. 

Here are some of the basics you can carry out in-game (for both PlayStation and Xbox): 

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

If you are feeling confident, then you can move on to some of the more advanced methods below:

  • 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)

This may take a while for you to master and your confidence will start to build, which means that you can incorporate skill moves with your dribbling.

Each player in-game has a skillset rating in the player details menu of an individual, which can be accessed by pushing the right analogue stick to access.

Here is an example of what you might find:

Kevin Prince-Boateng in FIFA 22.

As you can see, Hertha Berlin midfielder Kevin-Prince Boateng has four-star skill moves, which means he can pull off the majority of tricks in-game. Paired with a four-star weak foot, this will make the Ghanain an excellent dribbler.

We have built a comprehensive list below of all the skill moves in FIFA 22 right up to 5-star and even juggling.
