In FC 24, a Bicycle Kick is a special strike in which the player shoots the ball from behind in a scissor-like leg motion.

To perform a Bicycle Kick, hold L2 and press Circle. It is LT + B on Xbox. Two prerequisites for this special move are that the striker must be facing away from the goal, and the ball must be in the air. An Acrobatic PlayStyle player will also increase the odds.

  • PlayStation: Hold L2 and press Circle—or the respective shot button.
  • Xbox: Hold LT and press B—or the respective shot button.

Tips for Landing More Bicycle Kick Shots

Landing Bicycle Kicks has been more challenging in FC 24 compared to the preceding game. However, you can maximize the chances of doing them with these tips in mind:

  • Use players with the Acrobatic PlayStyle. Any player can attempt a Bicycle Kick. But only those with the Acrobatic PlayStyle are likely to land it perfectly.
  • Go for higher crosses. When crossing the ball, hold L1 (LB on Xbox). This will send the ball higher, making it likelier for the Acrobatic player to attempt a Bicycle Kick.
  • Don’t put too much power in the shot. Two to three bars are enough. Anything below or above this limit increases the chances of missing the shot.

Acrobatic players might perform other special moves
depending on their position
and ball direction. The only way to guarantee a Bicycle Kick is to have them face away from the penalty box before the cross.

If you are trying to do a Bicycle Kick from the corner, get the Acrobatic player closer to the nearest post. There is a higher chance of performing this special move in the right or left corner of the penalty box. However, note that most attempts from this position fail due to Bicycle Kicks being nerfed.
