FIFA 19: Here’s how to do a ‘Fake Shot Speed Boost’ when playing EA Sport’s new game

Take your game to the next level

It’s brilliant when you outplay your opponent in a game of FIFA.

One move that is healded above all others as the greatest trickster move is the overpowered Fake Shot with Speed Boost.

Former number one FIFA player in the world ‘drpoplove’ went into detail on how you can perform the move in FIFA 19.

How To Do A Fake Shot Speed Boost In FIFA 19

A normal fake shot involves you loading up your shot (B or Circle) and then cancelling it by tapping pass (A or X).

But to get the ridiculous speed boost, you have to hold LB/L1 while you do this, and then you have to pick an exit direction with LS.

So the final command looks like:

Xbox – hold LB, hold and let go B, quickly tap A, choose exit with LS.
PlayStation –  hold L1, hold and let go Circle, quickly tap X, choose exit with LS.

Why Is This Skill Move So Good? Is There A Downside?

The fake shot speed boost is great because it lets you dribble out the enemy defender, then rapidly run away from him. If you do a regular fake shot, you don’t get the explosive burst that you get with the speed boost.

There’s only one real downside here.

You lock your player into a long animation, leaving you vulnerable if you did the fake shot speed boost at the wrong time/place.

It’s a lot like sprinting in that you’ll quickly lose the ball if you do it at the wrong time.

So I recommend doing this move when there is space around the enemy defender. If there’s a circle of players surrounding you, it gets too risky.
