The free-kick system in FIFA 20 has been significantly overhauled, and can prove confusing at first glance. Fortunately, it’s fairly easy to get the hang of. Here are some tips to help you out.
How To Master Free Kicks
Firstly, you’ll need to choose where to aim. Use the left-stick to move the on-screen reticule, and remember to take spin into account — move it slightly above or wide of the goal, for example, depending on the type of shot you want to perform.
Next, you’ll want to set your power with the shooting button. Keep in mind that the more power you choose, the less accurate your shot will be. Try to find a good balance between power and accuracy.
You can apply spin with the right-stick in the following ways:
- Top Spin: Push the stick down, then up
- Side Spin: Push the stick down, and then rotate back to the top (right or left)
- Mixed:: Use a combination of Top Spin and Side Spin
- Knuckle Ball: Push the stick down, then up, then down again
The new free-kick system also works with FIFA 20’s Timed Finishing mechanic. You’ll find a guide to Timed Finishing here.
