FIFA 21: Controls and Buttons | Tutorial

Learning the controls of FIFA 21 will be key to victory. Here is a detailed look at the controls of the game.

The most important thing in any game is to learn and master the controls. FIFA 21 has a rather complex control scheme, which can be broken down into different phases and elements of the game. This includes movement, attacking, defending, goalkeeping, tactics and kick-off emotions, free-kicks, corners and throw-ins, and penalties. 

 

FIFA 21 also has some additional controls for specific modes including Be A Pro: Player, Be A Pro: Goalkeeper, and Volta Mode.

 

Here’s a list of them all for both Playstation and Xbox.
