How to aim shots in NHL 24

Goals win games and becoming a master of the ice, and the puck, will see you almost certainly become an NHL 24 wizard. 

Shooting is simple in NHL 24, but the aiming element of the shot is slightly more challenging, with concentration required in order to master the technique. 

In order to aim your shots in NHL 24, you will need to:

  •  Point the left analogue stick in the desired direction of the shot (Xbox and PlayStation)

This, of course, is a very simple task, but it can take some time to get used to the sensitivity of the left stick aiming mechanism. 

There are many different shot types that you can take on in NHL 24 as well, with all providing a unique way to hit the net and get your team ahead. 

Shot types like slap shots can take more time to master, but they will generate more power and be far more difficult for the goalkeeper to block. 

Either way, it’s vital that, if you’re new to the game, you head to the free skate mode to get a much better feel for how shots work in NHL 24. 

As with the release of any new game, NHL 24 will introduce some minor tweaks to basic mechanisms so be sure to give yourself some time to adapt before hitting the rink for in-game play.
