Skill moves are one of the elements that separate decent players from great ones in FIFA 22. When the rosters of two teams are evenly matched, the score will often depend on a player’s ability to outmaneuver their opponents.

Skill moves are the best way to outplay your opponents since you can catch them off guard and make an offensive play before they even realize what’s going on. While some skill moves have become a staple of the franchise, new ones also get added with each new title.

If your player has the required skill rating for a move, all that is left will be memorizing some of the best skill moves in FIFA 22 and using them to your advantage on the field.

Though having a large repertoire of moves helps in the long run, you can also get away with just learning the best ones out there. Open Up Fake Shot, Reverse Stepover, Ball Roll Cut Left, Drag Back, Heel Flick, and Four Touch Turn are some of the most effective skill moves in the game. Your personal preference will play an important role as well, and the moves that you’ll feel most comfortable with will often yield the best results on the pitch.

Here are the best skill moves by their star rating, as well as their controls on Xbox and PlayStation.
