FIFA 23 is just around the corner, with a ton of major details being revealed in the latest gameplay trailer.

Check below for everything you need to know about shooting overhauls coming in FIFA 23.

FIFA 23 Power Shots

Power Shots are a new skill based shot type that add extra power and accuracy to a shot at the cost of time and a higher degree of input precision.


To be successful with Power Shots, you need to consider the following:

  • Plenty of space around the ball carrier is usually needed, as each Power Shots requires a significant wind up.
  • Aiming generally needs to be more precise, since Power Shots do not behave like default Assisted Shots and rely heavily on the player’s aim to be successful.

Power shots have been introduced in order to add a new level of skill to shooting in FIFA 23.

The following Attributes impact Power Shots the most:

  • Shot Power,
  • Finishing
  • Long Shots
  • Composure.

These Attributes not only impact the accuracy of Power Shots, but also the speed and aim precision required from the player.

First-time or volleyed Power Shots interact with the new Composed Ball Striking system, allowing players to control the ball first and then immediately perform a powerful shot animation.

FIFA 23 Attacking

EA has announced some brand new gameplay changes arriving in FIFA 23, with new shots types one of the standout features.

Some of the main new features announced include:

  • Reworked Semi Assisted Shooting
  • Aiming closer and inside the goal is rewarded with greatly improved accuracy, while aiming far away will result in missing the net completely
  • Accuracy is based on how well you aim, and can be as high as double the accuracy of an Assisted Shot in the same position.
  • Low Shots - These shots will only occur when the player requests a low powered shot.
  • The previous command for Low Driven Shots is no longer available, as it is now used to request Power Shots.
  • Outside Of The Foot on Demand - Outside Of The Foot shots can now be requested using the L2 || LT button.
  • Shared with the Flair Shots, the addition of the Outside of the Foot shots increases the likelihood of a special animation happening.
  • Shooting Variety - Dipping shots, downward shots, side foot shots, sliding shots and bouncing shots are more commonly appearing in FIFA 23.
  • Refreshed Diving Headers - new Diving Header animations have been added.
  • NEW volleys, with dozens of new animations, including new acrobatic shots
  • Added high power Outside Of The Foots and lace shots while jogging.

Shooting was a key focus in a new patch update for FIFA 22, and we aren't surprised to see many of these new features arrive for FIFA 23.
