FIFA 16 All Elastico Tutorial: Complete Skill Guide

This is an in-depth guide on how to perform all of the elastico 5-star skill moves on FIFA 16 so that you can beat opponents in a blink of an eye and fast. Watch the full HD video tutorial below to learn exactly how to do this or continue to read on.

The Elastico

Now to perform the standard elastico it’s quite simple, say you are in a first-person view like the practice arena, all you have to do is hold the right analogue stick to the right and then go down in a circular motion from right to left ending up with the right stick left. An easier way to understand this is perform a smiley face from right to left and your player will nail it.

If this is still to hard for you to understand then please watch the video tutorial to get a better visual understanding of how this works well.

The Reverse Elastico

In-order to perform the reverse elastico you simply have to do it in reverse order of the instructions for the basic elastico. So do a smiley face motion from left to right with the right stick. Give it a practice in either the arena or on the skill games from the main FIFA 16 menu to get an idea of what it looks like and to train yourself to remembering the skill move before you go into either online of offline matches.

The Elastico Chop & Alternate Chop

This one is the easiest of the lot and is extremely underused by the FIFA community. A real overpowered 5-star skill move, the elastico chop can be the difference from being tackled to leaving your opponent behind wanting. To perform it you have to flick the right stick to the opposite way your player is facing, and then flick it to the side of the player.

For example, if the player is in first-person view, then you’d flick it down as that’s the opposite way the player is facing, then you’d flick it right or left as that’s the side of the player. Always remember the first part is the way the player is not facing, and the second part is a sideways flick.

The alternate elastico chop can be done with the same controls but with a twist! All you have to do is hold down the LT button on Xbox or L2 on PlayStation whilst you do the basic chop. There’s not much difference in both of the versions, the only slightly noticeable change is the alternate version knocks the ball a little more to the left or right and that’s it. In my opinion you should just stick to the standard elastico chop as it’s far easier to remember and perform with fewer controls to delegate.

That’s how you do all of the elastico skill moves!
