FIFA 21 Customise Controls & Controller Settings

FIFA 21 Custom Controls

In FIFA 21, you are able to customise your controller settings from assisted to semi- or full-manual controls on player switching, passing/lob passing/crossing, shooting, right stick switching, GK saving, sprinting and defending.

Here is a guide on FIFA 21 manual controls, the explanation and details on FIFA 21 controls customisation.

Timed Finishing

On
Trigger a timed finish by double tapping the button assigned to the "Shoot" action when attempting a strike. The precision and timing of the second button tap determines the result of the contact; perfectly timed strikes increase a shot’s accuracy and power, while poorly timed contacts make the shot more likely to miss the mark.

On
Enable Pass Block Assistance so that your AI controlled players and User controlled players will attempt to intercept a pass automatically when the ball is close by.
