As a teenager myself, F2Tekkz is my favorite pro fifa player. I enjoy watching him at tournaments, skilling and scoring at will, and crushing the pro scene. So when I feel that I need to improve to try to start pushing past gold 2, I looked to him. I love sports and scouting, so I decided to do some of my own. Over the last few hours I’ve watched almost all of his games from champs channel. This was this weekend when he went 28-2 and got top 100. I took a bunch of notes and decided to share what I found with the community. If you like this please upvote because I’m a teenager who spent a lot of time making this when he should have been studying for finals and I care about fake internet points. Also, in the future if I decide to do this again, would you like me to try to record clips of things I’m talking about? Maybe make it a weekly thing? Leave feedback please!
Just a note, this is really long, and some of the stuff might seem basic, but most people could learn a thing or two from all of this and implement it into their game.
4231 drop back low depth, its on his youtube channel. Was using not the best team in the game, but pretty close.
Tekkz is ridiculously aggressive, most of the time running towards the ball carrier. He also is obviously quite good at finding the passing lanes and closing down the opposition.
More than half the time he is defending, he is using rb or r1 to second man press. When I was watching him, it almost felt like he constantly using it to attack the opposition. This caused a lot of giveaways in the opponent's half leading to quick counters. He doesn't use it often in his final third or when it would pull players out of position that would lead to an immediate and easy through ball. This is also because there is more to gain from winning the ball back at the top of
the opponents box vs winning it at your own box. This often leaves his exposed to quick through balls and counter attacks. This is how he concedes most of his goals against.
He commits to tackles a ton, using 2nd man press and slide tackles frequently when he needs to. He is also willing to give away fouls, but not purposefully (usually).
Interestingly, he uses little R stick switching. This is because he almost always wants to be to the closest man to pressure. He also uses the offsides trap to stop his opponents through ball when there is a large chance. Also, in those situations, he moves his keeper forwards using Y.
Moves his keeper using R3 a ton. He usually does this later in the game when he has a judge of his opponent. There isn't much movement on corners, but on free kicks there is (towards the near post.
Yeah, its stupid that this needs to be a section. But it does.
At the start of the weekend league he was doing the usual, go down the wing and though ball stuff. Towards the end though, he got a different tactic. From kickoff he would trigger Mbappe or Ronaldo to run using LB. He would then pass the ball wide and go up the wing, while watching the runner. When they were about to pass the line of CBs he would cross the ball in for a header from the player. Most of the time he got a decent connection, however I didn't see him score this way even though they were good chances.
When he defends against the kickoff when the ball is passed he uses the offsides trap to move his back line forwards. Also when defending he uses 2nd man press to try to rush the ball off his opponent.
Offensive set pieces:
When he had a corner he either crossed it to Van Dijk (tots) or called a man short (note: waited until the corner “started” before calling man short). If he called a man short he did one of two things. He either R3 flicked up then crossed the ball to the back post, or he did la croquetas (not gonna tell people how to do these) to create an angle/opportunity for a shot or pass for a tap in.
When he had free kicks within 30ish yards he called 3 to the ball (LT and RB I think) and then had one do a fake shot before he passed it to the 3rd or 4th man for a first time shot.
He counterattacks quick and deadly. He also seems to always go forwards, as quick as he can. When he wins the ball back he usually makes the quick and simple pass to get out of his half, then he uses some techniques to counter. The way he likes to attack is through the wings, partially because there is a lot of space, also because there is only one way a defender can come at you from. Often he seems to use the minimap to find an open winger and pass to them. He then often uses the give-and-go pass (LB+A) to send the ball back before returning the ball in the form of a chipped (LB) curved (idk what it's actually called but its RB) or regular through ball. That's how he gets down the wings. Once down there he rarely crosses, only if it is a guaranteed 1v1 where there's an advantage (e.g. marcelo, vs, well, anyone lol). Most of the time he uses a skill move (which I’ll get to soon) to cut in and get a better chance, or passes it inside where he can dribble/skill and get shooting chances.
The fun part and what you might know him for. I’ll go over each skill he commonly uses and where, as well as how he combos them. A note is that he doesn’t risk possession in his half by skilling in his half, they are mainly used to open up lanes and in the final 3rd.
The drag back (RB) is used all over the pitch for him, in creating passing lanes and in creating shooting chances. It is used to just pull the ball back a foot or two without always changing direction. He uses it in conjunction with the scoop turn, where he creates an angle to shoot with.
Fake shot is used multiple ways. I haven't seen him use the RB open up fake shot, as I’d guess that exposes the ball too much. Here are the other fake shots he does and how he uses them.
The regular fake shot is used at a 45 degree angle for the speed boost, it helps get away from defenders and allows him to cut inside from the wing. This and while slowly dribbling are the two main times he uses it. It is also used 1st time by him to create space in the box. Another move like that that he uses is the dummy, most commonly used by a wide CAM to get around an outsideback.
The scoop turn can only be used while stopped with 4* players but with 5* players can be used while running. How to get into stopped positions is by using the RB drag back. With 5* players such as Mbappe he chains running scoop turn with other skills, such as the elastico and croqueta.
The stop fake shot (RB variant) is used when he, well, wants to stop. This is used often right before doing a la croqueta while on the wing especially.
Tekkz does not spam the la croqueta, he uses it individually to get around one man.
He uses the ball roll to create passing lanes, as well as to get into a different position to skill.
Roulettes, body feints, and heel to heels are also in his arsenal of common(ish) skills, but what makes him really good is how he quickly combines those moves.
Sometimes Tekkz waits for the opponent to pressure him when he is on the edge of the box, or uses LT to hold off pressure and then start dribbling.
Tekkz didn’t time a ton of his shots this weekend league, he might more in others but this one was really laggy. He also plays for the rebound, taking shots that don’t have a high percentage of going in, but opportunities afterwards. He will often take a low percentage shot when he has a bunch of space, vs a shot with a high likelihood of being blocked, but with a better angle.
He takes 1on1s very slowly, and waits for the gk to move if he has the time. Otherwise he generally tends to use a regular shot (less error) in the near post in those situations.
When Tekkz takes shots from an angle or near post from further out he seems to use high powered low drivens, as they can also rise (timed is better).
From further out he takes 1st time finesse or regular, depending on who/where it is. A couple times he’s used the low lob (1 bar power RB+X) to give tots Mane a 1st time volley.
Thanks for reading this, it took me a while to write and also would take you a while to read. If you have any suggestions or would like to see this again please feel free to comment and give me constructive feedback. P.S. It would be fun to play him sometime and get my ass kicked.
