The FIFA 22 best formation and custom tactics are absolutely crucial to understand if you want to stand any chance of winning matches on FIFA 22 Division Rivals and the other online modes. It goes without saying that there isn't one catch-all cheat code to win every game on FIFA 22, but once you nail down your choice of formation and set up all of your custom tactics, you'll fare much better. Here are all of the best FIFA 22 formations and custom tactics we've found so far.

FIFA 22 Best Formations: 4-2-3-1

A classic throughout the recent years of FIFA, 4-2-3-1 is the ever-reliable formation that balances attack and defence. You can either opt for two wide attacking midfielders, or two out-and-out wingers, depending on your team composition. Marauding full backs are ideal to make use of the full width of the pitch and ideally, you'll have attacking midfielders and wingers with decent finishing, to support the lone striker up top.

FIFA 22 4-2-3-1 Custom Tactics:

Defence

  • Defensive Style: Balanced
  • Width: 50
  • Depth: 50

Offence

  • Build Up Play: Slow Build Up
  • Chance Creation: Forward Runs
  • Width: 60
  • Players in Box: 5
  • Corners: 3
  • Free Kicks: 3

FIFA 22 Best Formations: 4-3-1-2

Alternatively, you can sacrifice the wingers and opt for two up top with a stronger presence down the middle with the 4-3-1-2. You still play with one CAM, but three CMs behind them. Ideally, you'll have the two wider CMs with permission to roam from their position and get further up the pitch when necessary. Defensively strong full-backs are crucial though, because otherwise you're completely open on the wings.

FIFA 22 4-3-1-2 Custom Tactics:

Defence

  • Defensive Style: Balanced
  • Width: 60
  • Depth: 50

Offence

  • Build Up Play: Slow Build Up
  • Chance Creation: Possession
  • Width: 50
  • Players in Box: 5
  • Corners: 3
  • Free Kicks: 3

FIFA 22 Best Formations: 5-3-2

Finally, one of the most popular choices in the series last year maintains its spot as one of the best formations in FIFA 22. While having five at the back may seem more defensive on paper, if you use wing backs that can bomb up and down the pitch while whipping in crosses to the central players, you have everything you need all over the pitch.

FIFA 22 5-3-2 Custom Tactics:

Defence

  • Defensive Style: Balanced
  • Width: 30
  • Depth: 50

Offence

  • Build Up Play: Fast Build Up
  • Chance Creation: Direct Passing
  • Width: 40
  • Players in Box: 5
  • Corners: 3
  • Free Kicks: 3

Of course, you'll need to play around and figure out which formation and tactics work best for the players at your disposal, so use these as a guideline rather than relying on them entirely.
