FIFA 10 Shooting Guide


Every FIFA 10 player faces difficulties with the final act of goal scoring.It can be really frustrating to get through all those defenders only to be blocked by the keeper or just shooting off target.
Here is a small guide to the various shooting techniques in FIFA 10 and their application.These are the techniques that I use. Though I have not yet mastered these skills but I surely have got loads better by using these techniques and see the ball in the back of the net much more often now.

Shooting Basics
The accuracy of a shot depends on a lot of factors:

  • Player Speed- The accuracy of a shot is highly diminished if the player is on a full on run.Try to leave the sprint button a stride or two before taking the shot,control the pace and then shoot for a better accuracy.
  • Player direction: If you try to run south and shoot north, the accuracy is obviously diminished.Try to face in the direction you are going to shoot as much as you can, specially in the one on one 's with the keeper and you will surely find the back of the net a lot more times.
  • Player Rating: This one is obvious.Better the player on the ball, more are your chances of scoring. Lionel Messi refuses to miss for me. (He has a goals/match avg of 2 in the current season I am playing ;) )
  • Foot selection: Get the ball on the preferred foot of the player for more power and accuracy.
  • Shot Power: This is the most important one. Power the shot meter too much and the ball flies over the goal and power it too less and the keeper will catch it as if he's mocking you.


Different Types of Shots:
The Power or Laces Shot :
This is the normal shot that you can hit by just pressing the shoot button. This looks the most stylist one and is the most useful for scoring long distance goals.
Don't get carried away though.Its very easy to put too much power into these shots.As a general rule filling up the power meter up to 75% works pretty well.If you can't control the power,try tapping the shoot button.
A long shot demo using laces shot:


The Finesse Shot:
This shot is hit by the side of the foot instead of the front side.This gives a lot more accuracy and control over the ball even though the power might be reduced.It is best to use this when within 20-25 yards of the goal.
Hitting  a Finesse shot:
PC- Press Q while holding down D
Xbox-Press RB while holding down B
PS3 -Press R1 while holding down O

The Chip Shot: 
This shot is the most satisfying when it comes to humiliating the keeper wither from a distance when he's out of position or when he's charging you.The underside of the ball is hit in this shot giving it the elevation.
One thing is for sure with this shot ,either you or the goal keeper are going to look silly because of this shot.
Hitting a Chip Shot:
PC- Press Z while holding down D
Xbox - Press LB while holding down B
PS3- Press L1 while holding down O


This is the official tutorial by EA Sports for the advanced shooting skills.Its for PS3 but works similarly for other platforms as well.




Direction Of Shot:
While powering up the shot meter, hold the direction button or move the stick in which you want the ball to go.The direction button you press will also add spin to the ball:
Pressing the left or right direction gives the ball corresponding side spins.
Pressing the down button gives the ball top spin.
Pressing the up button makes the ball go upwards.

Pressing the down button makes the ball dip downwards and is hence helpful when hitting the long shots.
