FIFA 23: Skill Moves Guide


FIFA 23 Goal2

FIFA 23 lists three new fake shots and four new skill moves. We’ll show you how to have fun with all seven of FIFA 23’s new features. 

First Time Feint Turn (1 Star), Stutter Feint (3 Stars), Heel to Ball Roll (4 Stars), and Heel Fake are the four new moves (5 Stars). Jog Open Up, Stand Open Up, and the Explosive Fake Shot are the names of the new fake shots (all 4 Stars). Let’s show you how to do them on this guide.

FIFA 23 skill moves star ratings

FIFA 23 Skill Moves

The list of FIFA 23 skill moves below is broken up into five groups. In the game, each player has a separate “skill moves” rating, which you can find on their attributes screen. This rating tells you how many tricks that player can do. One-star players can only use moves in that category, while five-star players can hit every single one. As you might guess, most defenders have lower ratings, while wingers usually have four stars or more.
