Finding Controller & Camera Settings in EA FC 24

First thing first, where is one to find these ever-present settings? Well that’s an easy one. Simply find the ‘Cog’ icon at the top-left corner of the screen on the Main Menu > Settings > Game Settings. From there, you’ll want to focus on Gameplay (which follows) and Camera (a little later on).

Similar to FIFA 23, we’re having the most fun with that little bit of assistance. But again, what works best is down to what you feel is best.

An early warning, though: The ‘Competitive Master Switch’ preset will automatically trigger for all online matches. Here’s what that means for a handful of our settings below:

  • Auto Shots: Off
  • Assisted Headers: Off
  • Auto Flair Pass: Off
  • Auto Clearances: Off
  • Jockey: Manual
  • Contextual Dribbling: Off

Best Preferred Controller Settings

  • Auto Shots: Off – Please, no sudden shots from random players.
  • Assisted Headers: Off
  • Shot Assistance: Assisted – Having total control over the direction of your shot can be satisfying, but at the same time it requires plenty of practice.
  • Timed Finishing: On – Likewise, double tapping the shot button could trip up defenders (and their goalkeeper) when you need it most. But, this is only triggered by actually double tapping the shoot button. Otherwise, you can still shoot normally.


  • Auto Flair Pass: Off – Similar to Auto Shots, we’ll trust ourselves with fun little passes, thank you very much.
  • Through Pass Assistance: Semi – Better work on your aim.
  • Lobbed Through Pass: Assisted (Default)
  • Ground Pass Assistance: Assisted (Default)
  • Cross Assistance: Assisted (Default)
  • Lob Pass Assistance: Assisted (Default)
  • Pass Receiver Lock: Animation Start – When the kicking animation begins, the receiver will lock in. We’re not too fussed if you decide to leave it Late, however. If Late, the lock will occur when the ball is kicked.
  • Precision Pass Sensitivity: Normal (Default)


  • Auto Clearances: Off – Again, we’ll decide when to clear. Though, playing around with this until your find the right fit
  • Clearance Assistance: Directional
  • Jockey: Manual – Might as well get used to this if it’s going to be automatic when you’re playing online.
  • Defending: Tactical Defending – You get to time your own tackles. Enough said. But if you’re feeling adventurous, Advanced Defending allows you to choose your tackle type as well. It can be tricky to get the hang of, but might that make your triumphs more rewarding? We’ll let you decide.
  • Pass Block Assistance: On


  • Auto Switching: On Air Balls & Loose Balls (Default)
  • Auto Switching Move Assistance: None (Default)
  • Right Stick Switching: Classic (Default)
  • Right Stick Switching Reference: Player Relative (Default)
  • Right Stick Switching Sensitivity: 4 (Default)
  • Next Player Switching: Classic
  • Player Lock: On – My goodness, those off-the-ball runs can be beautiful.
  • Icon Switching: Off


  • Contextual Dribbling: Off – If you’re not playing online, by all means have at it!
  • Orbit Dribbling: On


  • Save Assistance: Assisted

General Preferences

  • Analog Sprint: Off
  • Trigger Effect: Off
  • User Vibration Feedback: Make your choice! Enhanced may be the most fun, but if you’re looking for vibrations during the most crucial of gameplay actions, then Classic is likely for you.
