Rate this post

Scoring goals in one on one situation or even simple scoring is tough in the new FIFA 18. You can take it as a part of gameplay enhancement or overpowered goalkeepers, but getting your ball at the back of the net is not at all easy in the new FIFA game. Simple shooting still works, but it won’t help you every time, and you will definitely have to switch to different types of shots for effective scoring.

There are different shot types that could help you in getting the ball in from different spots and positions. For example, if you are far away from the goal, you should use Power shot (shooting with Pace Control button) to dip your ball while imparting a huge amount of power in it. In case a goalkeeper is charging towards you, use chip shot to play the ball over the goalkeeper’s head and score a goal etc. One such shot type that we loved to play with in FIFA 17 was Finesse shot, however, it has been made a lot more difficult in the latest FIFA 18 version. Not only that, you will definitely have to use this shot type if you really wish to be lethal in the FIFA 18 game.

This technique of scoring is very useful whenever you are heading towards the opponent’s goal at a particular and wish to curl or curve the ball from outside to inside around the keeper for a goal.

However, if you do not know how to hit finesse shots in FIFA 18, you can follow the tutorial below in order to learn, master and score a lot of easy goals in FIFA 18.

How to perform Finesse Shot in FIFA 18

There is no doubt in the fact that Finesse shots are the most overpowered shots in the FIFA 18 game, and they are very lethal as well when performed from the right spot. They are far more easier than FIFA 17, but more tricky as well.

The steps here will help you to score with any player mostly, still, we recommend you to take a shot with a player which has high accuracy as well as finishing. This is definitely going to improve your chances a lot while scoring. A better player with high ratings and attributes can easily play the finesse shot from far away, while for players with less rating need to come a bit closer to the post, sometimes inside the Penalty box for scoring accurately.

The next thing that you need to take care of is the power you need to apply while taking the shot. That is why you will also need a player with decent shot power, and then you will be able to score as many screamers from different positions in the game.

When Shooting from Far Outside the Box

Step 1: Move in the direction where you wish to hit the ball, top or the bottom corner.

Step 2: Press the RB or R1 button on the controller

Step 3: Now when you are far or outside the box, of around 25-35 yards, press shoot. You will need minimum two and a half bar of power.

Don’t put in too much thinking that you are far. That will carry the ball way over the bar. With the right direction, hold the R1 button (RB on Xbox) and press the shooting button with appropriate power.

When Shooting from Far Top Left of the Box

Step 1: Move towards the bottom right corner of the box.

Step 2: Press the R1 or RB button on your controller.

Step 3: Now, aim the thumbstick down and then tilt it slightly towards the right while pressing the shoot button with 2-3 bar power.

When Shooting from Far Bottom Left of the Box

Step 1: Move towards the top right corner of the box.

Step 2: Press the R1 or RB button on your controller.

Step 3: Now, aim the thumbstick up and then shift it a bit towards the right while pressing the shoot button with 2-3 bar power.

When Shooting from Far Top Right of the Box

Step 1: Move towards the bottom left corner of the box.

Step 2: Press the RB or R1 button on your respective PS and Xbox controllers.

Step 3: Now, aim the thumbstick down and them tilt it slightly towards the left while pressing the shoot button with 2-3 bar power.

When Shooting from Far Bottom Right of the Box

Step 1: Move towards the top left corner of the box.

Step 2: Press the RB or R1 button on your respective PS and Xbox controllers.

Step 3: Now, aim the thumbstick up and them swirl it towards the left while pressing the shoot button with 2-3 bar power.

When Shooting while Moving Away from the Goal

On the other hand, if you are moving away from the near side,

Step 1: First of all leave the Sprint button if you are using it.

Step 2: Aim towards the far corner of the goal depending upon from where you wish to take the shot.

Step 3: Press and hold the RB or R1 button on your controller.

Step 4: Press the shoot button with only 1-2 bar of power. Since you are near the post, applying too much power will take the ball out of the ground over the goal post.

Same you can do if you are moving towards the net in opposite direction, this will make the ball swirl. This time you need a bit less power, two to three bar would be enough to get the ball behind the keeper and score a goal.

There is another important thing to keep in mind. And that is, where you want to put the ball in the entire goal box. Power is very important when you want to score a finesse shot, and based upon you are aiming for a low shot or a powerful curler to the top corner, the power you need to put in is going to vary.

For example, you see the goalkeeper moving towards you and you wish to just finesse slip the ball around the approaching goalkeeper, it will require very little power. But if you wish to slot the ball right at the top corner from the edge or inside the box, overall the defenders, you will have to increase the power a bit to one or one and a half bar.

There are some secondary points that you should keep in the mind as well. We all know that the shots are very much affected by the weather conditions in the game. So, you might have to vary the power while taking the finesse shots in rain or snow. Also, we would recommend to go for the finesse shot with the player’s preferred foot. It is something you will realize when you will see Ronaldo and Messi curling the ball exceptionally from their preferred foot than the other foot. Last but not the least, try, try and try. The more you will try, more perfect and comfortable you become for trying the finesse shot from various positions, even from far long.
