Trying to learn how to outside foot shot in FC 24? The ‘trivela’ was super effective in FIFA 23 last season, and you can perform the shot type again in FC 24.

Now the FC 24 release date is way behind us, we have put in hours and hours playing the game already to help form our FC 24 review.

EA has already showcased the power of its new innovations, with the game looking and feeling more realistic than ever. 

Whilst plenty has changed in the release of FC 24, there are some fundamental elements that have stayed the same, with it being more important than ever to learn the basics in order to progress.

With that in mind, here’s a simple guide as to how you can perform an outside-the-foot shot, or trivela, in FC 24. 

How to outside foot shot in FC 24

The outside-the-foot shot, also known as the trivela, has been popularised both in real life and in-game over recent years. 

Whilst it has existed for some time, the likes of Joao Cancelo and Kevin De Bruyne took its popularity to the next level.

FIFA 23 also played its part, with the outside-the-foot strike proving itself to be a meta-breaker. 

Last year, timing your trivela shots right would almost feel like a cheat code when it came to finding the back of the net, with both power trivelas and floated trivelas leading to some insane results. 

The pros themselves have often referenced the trivela as one of their favourite features in-game, and we’re pleased to say that it’s back with a bang in FC 24. 

In order to pull of the trivela in FC 24:

  • Hold down LT + B (Xbox)
  • Hold down L2 + Circle (PlayStation)

Similar to performing a skill shot, you’ll need to make sure you register enough power in the shot in order for a trivela to be performed, otherwise, your play may end up producing a weak rabona into the hands of the ‘keeper. 

Trivelas can be performed when both stationary and running, with both leading to different animations.

Performing a trivela whilst running will produce more power, whilst a stationary effort will likely be more floated. 

Either way, we’d recommend heading into the arena in FC 24 and perfecting your outside-of-the-foot shooting skills.

It is worth checking your players’ PlayStyles too. Trivela is one of them, but check out the FC 24 best PlayStyles to see what you should prioritise.
