Fifa 11 General Long Shot and Shot Aim Guide


Now that  the basics of shooting in FIFA 11 have been covered, here is how to make sure the shots hit the corner every time. Manually aim the shots by the direction of the left controller stick. Here is a general outline:
  • Moving the stick to the left moves the ball left and adds left spin
  • Moving the stick to the right moves the ball right and adds right spin
  • Moving the stick up moves the ball up
  • Moving the stick down sends the ball on the ground
Despite these basic controls, the camera angle or view can directly effect the shot aim. For example, in Pro camera, moving the stick to the left moves the ball left. In Tele camera mode, moving the stick left actually adds backspin to the shot. Be sure to practice and understand how the angles affect the aiming of your shot in your camera angle.

Long Shot Guide:
Long shots are not easy to master but can make fantastic highlight reels. Holding the left stick to aim while powering up the shot is essential to have accuracy. Holding the left stick down adds topspin to keep the ball from flying over the goal. 

When trying for a long shot, press and hold the shot button first or the player will turn in the direction of the left stick. Hold down the left control stick to keep the ball from overshooting the goal.

Long Shot Situations:
Long shots are amazing when they work, but you need to know the best times to use them. The following situations are when I use them the most:
  • When a high rated player has room above the box and has a lane to shoot in; run in the direction of the far post and charge up the shot meter to about half way
  • When I am frustrated and need a good shot on goal
Best Ways to Stay on Target:
To further the success of shots follow these tips:
  • Do not shoot from more than 25 yards away, keeping it close greatly improves accuracy
  • Sacrifice power for finesse, accuracy is often more important than power- FINESSE!
  • Do not blast the shot over the net by charging it up more than half way
  • Play with good players and high rated teams 
  • Practice!
Practice shooting all the time and eventually the techniques to scoring consistently.will come easily. If you have any questions or comments, please leave them in the comments and I will respond!
