Shooting Volley Shots in FIFA 23

Volleying is pretty simple in FIFA 23 in regards to the actual button input. To do one, simply press Circle on PS4/ PS5 or B on Xbox One/ Xbox Series X|S when the ball is in the air and near your player.

Of course, the tricky part of volleying is the timing; only a well-timed shot to a player who has enough space to pull one off and can generate the necessary power to beat the keeper is going to actually score.

Our best advice is to feed your striker with a decent cross by pressing Square/ X into or around the edge of the box. As the ball travels through the air, take control of your striker who is about it hit it and press and hold Circle/ B to charge the shot, then use your left analog stick to aim your volley on target. Let go of Circle/ B when you feel as though you have enough power on your volley, then let it rip.

One key thing to keep in mind is that generally speaking, less power is better when it comes to volleys. You don’t want to overcook the shot and have it wildly fly over the crossbar. Instead, put a little less on it than you think is necessary, and that way, even if you don’t score, you’ll at least have a shot on target that tests the keeper. Typically, volleys tend to naturally have more pace and power than standard shots.
