What are power shots in FIFA 23?

EA describes power shots as a shot that add accuracy and power, at the cost of time and more input precision.

FIFA 21 added timed finishing, and the mechanic acts similarly. Players shoot more accurately and score from tighter angles at the cost of precision button presses.

Timed finishing was a complex skill to master, but if perfectly executed it will massively raise your chance of scoring goals. Power shots may be hard to learn at first, but the reward will most likely be worth it.

Power shots rely heavily on accurate aiming, so players must aim more precisely than a regular assisted shot. EA stated: “Our intent with the addition of the power shots is to introduce an additional layer of skill to shooting.”
