EA FC 24 includes four new and nearly 70 returning skill moves to conquer defenses, which range from 1-star skill moves to 5-star flicks. Get ready to master your moves in the practice arena, elevating your gameplay by dominating space creation and advanced passing skills with our very useful guide.

EA categorizes players based on dribbling skills from 1 to 5 stars, with the highest tier reserved for exceptionally skilled and flamboyant footballers.

However, not every five-star skilled player has the same skill in real life. To help make dribbling feel more authentic, EA FC 24 introduces Playstyles, which brings to life the abilities of football’s biggest stars.

For example, the Trickster Playstyle grants the ability to perform unique flick skill moves. Let’s jump into the full EA FC 24 skill moves list to see those tricks and more.

EA FC 24 1-star skill moves

Any FC player can perform 1-star skill moves. And as such, each input is rather simple and easy to pull off in-game.

EA FC 24 2-star skill moves

As with 1-star skill moves, 2-star skill moves are easy to pull off, and you don’t necessarily need a superstar to add these tricks to your arsenal.

EA FC 24 3-star skill moves

This is where we begin to separate talented players from the rest of the pack. 3-star skill moves are by no means impossible to pull off on a regular basis, but they require more precision and time to perfect.

4-star skill moves

When you are trying to make a decisive move in the final third to create that little bit of space to score a goal, these are the skills you want to know like the back of your hand. Each move has its own special time to use and takes time to perfect, but can be lethal in the right hands.

5-star skill moves

Sometimes, you will feel like you are pulling off a combo in a fighting game rather than playing EA FC 24 while using these skill moves. However, 5-star skills are only reserved for the best dribbles in the game, and that special honor comes with the added benefit of ankle-breaking skills.

5-star juggling skills

Players with 5-star skill moves will also be able to perform exclusive moves while they’re juggling. But you must remember that to execute each of these movements shown below, you need to be constantly juggling the ball, and to do this, you just have to hold L2/LT and repeatedly tap R1/RB when standing
