FIFA 22 Users Have Noticed A Goal Kick Glitch That Makes It Easier To Score

FIFA 22 is set for release on Friday 1st October, with much of the talk going into launch day being about the game's new - and some might argue controversial - game engine.

The addition of 'Hypermotion' to the next-generation consoles has been met with much fanfare, as game creators EA have described how it will revolutionize gaming.

However, one issue has already been uncovered with the new gameplay, as a number of videos posted to YouTube have highlighted.

It seems as if goals can be scored very easily on FIFA straight from a goal kick, as the video below demonstrates.

It should be noted that users can only currently play a beta version of the game, or the demo prior to official release this Friday, so we don't yet know whether this feature will still be in the game by the time the final product is realised.

We've seen plenty of similar glitches occur in FIFA games down the years, but given the hype surrounding this year's new features, it isn't exactly a good look right before the title's official release.

Goal kicks are a frequent occurrence in any game of FIFA, just as they are in real-life football.

Therefore, a glitch that makes it almost inevitable that you will be in on goal straight from a keepers kick is a big problem indeed for the game's developers.

As YouTuber JCC points out, you're able to launch a goal kick right down to the opposite end of the pitch, where you can pick out an attacker every time - providing you're accurate.

When the attacker then picks up the ball in either corner, they have a perfect counterattack opportunity, one that leaves their opposition defenders in all kinds of trouble.

The issue is thought to be most acute when playing online, as opposition players are unable to react in time.

We suspect many users will be attempting this trick when the game is officially released in a few days, as against the uninitiated, it could be very rewarding indeed.

It's not currently known whether EA will add any future patches to increase the difficulty of launching a counter directly from a keeper's kick, so for the time being, its surely worth a try when playing online.
