Once you’ve got the basics down in FIFA 21, you’ll want to show off whenever you can, embarrassing your opponents in the process. So that you can put the ball in the back of the net in a special way, here’s everything you need to know about how to score flair shots in FIFA 21.
Flair shots are things such as backheels, scorpion kicks, rabonas, and simple no-look shots. They’re don’t get you anything extra, they just look pretty cool when you do them and they’re a way to show off.
You don’t have much choice in what exactly your player does, since it’s activated by just the press of a button, but it’ll change if players have the flair trait, which allows them to do the more spectacular moves.
How to Score Flair Shots in FIFA 21
Thankfully, doing a flair shot in FIFA 21 is pretty easy and the same as it has been in the series for as long as I can remember. All you need to do is press the shoot button while holding the left trigger on what ever system you’re playing on. Below is the precise break down of the inputs on each platform:
|*Platform*||*Flair Shot Input*|
|PS4||Hold L2 + press circle|
|Xbox One||Hold LT + press B|
|Switch||Hold LZ + press A|
You can do flair shots whether the ball is on the ground or in the air. If the ball is in the air, above the player you’re trying to shoot with, they’ll likely try to do a bicycle kick. If it’s on the ground though, your player will likely flick it with the outside of their foot, or something similar.
Again, if the player you’re using has the flair trait, they might attempt something a little more impressive than a back heel.
