FIFA 22 has arrived and whilst there may be new players on different teams, new celebrations and many more special features – there are sadly no new chemistry styles. However, if you are new to the FIFA community and are wondering what chemistry styles are and how to use them to their maximum effect, we’ve got you covered.
Chemistry styles in FIFA can often be overlooked, but they shouldn’t be. The styles added can have a great impact on the way your players perform in game and can increase their statistics across multiple different attributes.
In previous versions of FIFA, chemistry styles have had a minimal impact on your players during games but if FIFA 21 is anything to go by, then you can expect them to be vital to have applied to your players in this year’s game.
If you want to maximise your players’ potential, you may want to consider spending those extra few coins on styles that suit your favourite players best or even better, purchase your players with them already applied.
In this chemistry style explainer, you will discover which chemistry styles you may want to add to your forwards, midfielders, defenders and goalkeepers. You will also find out which three styles we believe are the most effective in game along with what each style does to each individual attribute.
FIFA 22 player guides:
To use them, is simple. You can find different chemistry style cards in packs, objective rewards or buy them from the transfer market. You can also buy players off the transfer market with chemistry styles already applied – which is highly recommended.
To apply a chemistry style, you first need to have a player. Select your player and press X on your Xbox controller or the square button on your PlayStation controller to bring up the actions menu.
From here, you select ‘apply consumable’ and then toggle ‘chemistry styles’. This should bring up all the chemistry styles you have in your club.
Then, you can preview what stats get boosted by hovering over the chemistry style. But to get a more in-depth look at those stat increases you can find all the information you need in the chart below.
Below is what each chemistry style will improve if you were to apply them on your player. Of course, you can apply whatever chemistry style you would like to your player, however, we have put them in what position they would work best.
Can help your slower but intelligent centre-back keep up with the youth and 90+ pace forwards. Without shadow, you can forget about catching the likes of Kylian Mbappe or Ismaila Sarr…
Time to play catch up! Increases your chances of getting in behind the defence with your slightly slower striker. Can make a huge difference on forwards with 75-85 pace. It also boosts your striker’s shooting ability, which can be key once you get in behind.
Just after shadow, this is arguably the second-best chemistry style in the game. If you’ve already got full-backs in your squad that have pace, it’s time to increase their overall defending. This chemistry style can best be utilised with defenders who lack either physicality or defending stats. You can also apply this to central midfielders that you want to play slightly more defensive – especially in that CDM role.
If you want to take your knowledge on chemistry styles even further, you can head to FUTBIN.com and use their online database to play around with what chemistry style would work best on your player.
To do this, search the player you are considering applying a chemistry style to, then select the different chemistry styles and see what rating your player would have with that style applied.
Bear in mind, the rating of your player will not change – it is merely an indicator of what those stats would reflect if you were to apply that style.
