All-new Skill Meter

FIFA Street is back baby! VOLTA's Skill Meter is certainly a throwback to the 'Gamebreaker' system we used to love on the original FIFA Street game.

But how does it work? The Skill Meter will increase by completing the following:

  • Making a fancy pass fills up the bar by 100
  • A successful wall pass awards 200
  • Beating an opponent using a Skill Move is 300
  • Nutmeg an opponent for 800
  • Dispossessing the other team awards 100.
"The Skill Meter is broken down into 3 sections, and each section takes 1,000 Points to fill.
"It’s important to note that at the time of this article being published, the points are not necessarily final and may change before or after FIFA 22 launches.
"When the first section is filled the goal multiplier is x2, this means the next goal will count as 2 goals instead of 1.
"For those that have played some of the House Rules games in Kick Off, this should be familiar to you. The second section is x3, and the third section is x4."

Signature Abilities

"Signature Abilities are brand new, easy-to-use, game-changing abilities for you to trigger during a match.
"Whether you want to slam home thundering shots from anywhere on the pitch, blow past opponents with lightning pace, or rattle bones with crunching tackles, Signature Abilities are there to help."

Another brand-new feature for this season, we can't wait to try them out!
