How are you getting on with FIFA 21? Terrible? Us too.
Rightly or wrongly, a new hack has been doing the rounds on Reddit, detailing how to significantly improve your conversion rate in front of goal.
While it may seem a little unfair, we’re writing this just as much to let you know what you might be up against in your next Ultimate Team fixture, rather than sitting there baffled as to how this keeps happening against you.
The tactic is essentially flicking the ball up, be it with a simple scoop or a more extravagant rainbow flick, before lofting the ball over the helpless keeper.
YouTuber NepentheZ took to Twitter to demonstrate exactly what the underhand method looks like in-game and how goalkeepers seem to struggle with handling these kinds of efforts.
I don't know if I should say I'm sorry, or you're welcome. Either way, happy chipping.— NepentheZ (@NepentheZ) December 9, 2020

The trend isn’t entirely surprising, keeper animations have always been a little iffy when it comes to chipped shots, as pointed out below.
Maybe people on reddit saw us do this back in FIFA 20. Did it in FIFA 19 too. The way the game is coded the keeper does the wrong save animation usually diving away from it. One of best ways to finish in FIFA from lots of angles. #FIFA21 https://t.co/3iQt7LgDUT https://t.co/w0CQTRB9uD— FIFAAddiction FIFA 21 website #FIFA21 (@fifaaddiction) December 9, 2020
