How to do low driven shot

Alongside the likes of the Chipped Shot and Finesse Shot, the FIFA 22 Low Driven Shot allows you to manipulate your strikes to avoid the hands of a goalkeeper and find the bottom corners with ease. 

Depending on which console controller you're using and which button layout, the FIFA 22 Low Driven Shot buttons will change slightly, although the base directions are as follows:

  • Xbox Controller (Classic Layout): LB + RB + B (hold B for power).
  • PlayStation Controller (Classic Layout): L1 + R1 + Circle (hold Circle for power).

The Low Driven Shot is a way of shooting that drills the ball low towards the goal, rather than elevating the ball into the arms of a goalie. 

Almost skimming the grass in the classic "daisy cutter" style, the FIFA 22 Low Driven Shot is one of the most effective ways of finding the back of the net, avoiding the keepers' arms as they tumble to the ground.

When To Use The FIFA 22 Low Driven Shot

The FIFA 22 Low Driven Shot is best used in 1v1 finishing techniques, most effectively within the 18-yard box. Despite being somewhat effective from range should it somehow find a way through a defenders' legs, the technique does rely on having a clear path to the corner.

Whereas a normal finish or a finesse will leave the ball at the right height for a goalkeeper to tip a shot around the post for a corner, the FIFA 22 Low Driven Shot will allow you to slam the ball into the bottom corner when faced with just the goalkeeper. It's also effective when the goalkeeper is hurtling their body at the ball in a 50/50 like manner, having come off the ground, where it can be slipped underneath them into an empty goal. 

By simply just holding the bumpers of your controller when faced in a 1v1 situation, the FIFA 22 Low Driven Shot will likely end with the ball finding the bottom bins and is one of the best finishing mechanics on the game.

Now you know how to do the FIFA 22 low driven shot, why not pick up a player who will excel at them, such as one of the players included in the FIFA 22 Next Generation Pack?
