Is there a better sight in the world of football than a striker firing a volley into the roof of the net? Volleys require precision as well as power and are amongst the most cinematic of attempts in the world of football.
And the same can be said for Fifa, with volleys often separating the pros from the casuals. Join us at Gamelevate as we run you through how to score the perfect volley in Fifa 23!
What Is a Volley?
In both the real world and Fifa 23, volley shots are attempts on goal that see players hit the ball before it bounces in the air.
The idea is to catch defenders and goalkeepers flat-footed by shooting when they’re not expecting, or latching onto loose balls that can’t be taken to touch.
It is one of the hardest types of shots in Fifa to get right due to how much timing comes into play with it.
Power is also a crucial part of a Fifa 23 volley. Too much and the ball will blaze over the bar, whilst not enough will just limp the ball into the goalie’s arms.
Not only do these types of shots look great when executed perfectly, but the intricacies that go into them can make them some of the most spectacular goals.
How To Perform A Volley Shot In Fifa 23
Performing a volley shot in Fifa 23 is pretty simple. Whenever the ball is aiborne press the following whilst aiming with the left analog stick:
Xbox One/Xbox Series X|S: B
PlayStation 4/PlayStation 5: O
Unlike other types of shots in Fifa, the importance of volleys comes from the delivery before the shot, rather than the actual execution of it. Usually, volleys are performed on the back of a good cross.

Volley Tips In Fifa 23
Generally, it’s usually a better idea to play it safe when it comes to powering a volley in Fifa. Blazing an attempt over the bar not only makes you look like an amateur but at least keeping it low enough to work the goalkeeper keeps the opportunity for a rebound or a corner alive.
Ultimate Team Volley Challenges require players to fully volley the ball without it bouncing, however it’s always worth keeping in mind that you can let it bounce once and ensure a bit more control with a half-volley attempt.
Also, don’t underestimate the impact aiming the ball can have. Timing and power mean nothing if the ball is going straight down the goalkeeper’s throat, after all.
Before taking on a shot, take the time to consider where the goalkeeper is, and where the hardest spot for them to reach the ball is. We find going across the goalie is pretty overpowered in Fifa 23.
