Players have wasted no time in finding exploits to take advantage of in EA Sports' recent instalment in the franchise, including one method of skipping hours' worth of grinding to obtain 'Icons.'
Grinding is important to unlocking the top-tier prizes for Squad Battles, but not all players are keen on putting in endless hours into the mode.
However, one Reddit user has sped up that process with a new exploit, which replaced the 'fake shot exploit' that was patched by EA Sports in November.
User wahoos22 said: "There is a working replacement for the Squad Battles sake [sic] shot. Works on All Difficulties including Ultimate."
The exploit works by the player passing the ball back to their 'keeper before tapping the ball into an empty space.
While the player's 'keeper will run after the loose ball, the opposition team's AI will no longer be able to press or take control of possession.
As pointed out by the Reddit user, players can run the exploit on Ultimate difficulty as they easily rack up Squad Battles wins with this method.
The FIFA 21 user also provided an explanation for how players can pull off the pass into empty space should they be struggling to do it.
"Aim into the space where no player is and tap pass. Even on the default assisted passing it should pass where you aim if you tap lightly enough and aim far enough from any teammate," wahoos22 wrote.
FIFA 21 is now available for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
