Rainbow Flick Guide for FIFA 23

If you’re looking to get one over on the defender, players have options. High amongst them is the risky yet rewarding rainbow flick. Pull it off and you may just look like a hero. Fail, however, and the result could prove very costly.

The move itself involves rolling the ball onto the heel before proceeding to kick it over your head and into the space ahead of you. Ideally, that takes the defender out of the equation entirely. And while it’s tricky to get right, it still only takes a combination of flicks on the right joystick.

Oh, and depending on who the player is using, they may be able to pull off an advanced rainbow flick as well. But before we get to that, here’s the difference in combinations between the two:

  • Rainbow Flick: Right stick – Down, Up, Up
  • Advanced Rainbow Flick: Right stick – Down, Hold Up, Up

The advanced version of the move kicks the ball a bit further in front of the player. For a player to be able to execute the basic version, they’ll need four-star skill moves. In order to utilize the advanced version, they’ll need five-star skill moves.

For now, though, that’s all you need to know in order to do a rainbow flick in FIFA 23. If you like what you see, keep your eyes here on Twinfinite.
