FIFA 22 skill moves guide with every trick, flick and spin

The new FIFA 22 skill moves feel familiar after a full season’s use, but that’s not to say that they don’t come in handy. There are four to master in FIFA 22. You need a player with four-star skill moves to perform the Skilled Bridge, Four-Touch Turn, and Scoop Turn Fake. However, only those with five-star skill moves can nail the First-Time Spin. There are plenty of old favourites still in the game too. Below we outline how to unleash every new and old trick, in GR’s FIFA 22 skill moves guide.

FIFA 22 skill moves star ratings explained

The FIFA 22 skill moves list below is split into five categories. Every player in the game has an independent ‘skill moves’ rating, which you can find on their attributes screen, and determines how many tricks he or she can pull off. One-star players can only unleash moves in that category, whereas five-star players can nail every last one. As you’d expect, most defenders have lower ratings, while wingers can often be found with four stars and above.
