The sheer number of button combinations that do a variation of the same thing is what makes the FIFA games so complex and hard to master. There are four commonly used shot types in FIFA 16.
Standard Shot: The standard and most commonly used shot type is performed by pressing circle/’B’/left-click for a certain amount of time, depending on how hard you want the shot to be.
Finesse Shot: Used for curling the shot around the goalkeeper, making it more accurate, the finesse shot is performed by pressing R1 + circle/RB + B/D.
Chip Shot: When you see the goalkeeper rushing out his goal you can press L1 + circle/LB + B to chip it over him.
Flare Shot: To perform bicycle kicks, rabonas, scorpion kicks, or backheel finishes, you hold L2 or LT and press shoot. You can score some incredible goals if you get it right.
