Green Timed Shots Guide for FIFA 23

When you begin your FIFA 23 adventure, you’ll quickly learn that timed finishing is on by default. So once you get a game going, and find yourself in the opponent’s box, that’s when it’s time to go to work. Depending on the platform, here’s what you’ll need to do to execute a green timed shot in FIFA 23:

  • Xbox: B + B (timed)
  • PS4 & PS5: Circle + Circle (timed)
  • Nintendo Switch: A + A (timed)

We’ve been preaching timing with these pass and shot guides, but this time players have an in-game guide of their own. If the second button tap is timed poorly, you’ll see red above the player’s head. But if it’s timed correctly, you’ll see green.

Turn Off Timed Finishing

If you don’t want to mess around with the prospect of timed finishing to begin with, players can always turn it off. Fortunately, that process is simple:

  1. Find ‘Customize’ in the Main Menu.
  2. Then ‘Control Settings.’
  3. Finally, change ‘Timed Finishing’ to Off.

And that’s that, FIFA players—everything you need to know to score green timed finishing shots in FIFA 23. It’s not always about perfection, but sometimes it has to be.
