FIFA 14 Longshots

FIFA 14 Longshots

Standard Long Shot

For the Xbox 360 press and hold B until just over halfway, and for the PS3 do exactly the same. These types of long shots were extremely overpowered in the previous version, but they seem to have been tweaked slightly for this years installment. Try to only execute this shot when you have a ton of space in front of you and an opposition player is at least 2 yards away from the player that you’re controlling with the ball.

The Finesse Long Shot

The finesse long shot is by far the most OP shooting technique in FIFA 14. This is where the player will put a bit of swerve on the ball and try to place it into the top or bottom corner of the goal. For the Xbox 360 hold in RB and press and hold the B button about halfway depending on your distance out and use the left-stick to place the shot into which corner you’d like.

For the PS3, hold in R1 and press and hold O until about halfway again depending on your distance out from the opposing goal. then use the left-stick to direct the shot into what corner you want it to go in.

The Dipping Long Shot

To perform the dip long shot for the Xbox 360, you need to press and hold B and hold the left-stick up for the entirety so it loops over the keeper. For the PS3, press and hold O and press the left-stick up so that it loops over the goalkeeper.
