PES 2013 Dribbling Tips

You can watch the detailed tutorials of these tricks here.

Flick/Sombrero: The Flick is very useful to evade challenges that come just as you get on the ball. To perform a simple flick just press and hold the right stick as the ball comes to you.

To flick the ball over a defender push the left stick in the direction of the particular defender you want to flick the ball over the top of.

Double touch: A simple tap to the ball to push it in front of your other foot and then using that foot to push the ball forward and past the defender in front of you. To perform this, push right stick down/up, and push left stick forward.

Nutmeg/Paana: This trick makes the ball go through your opponent’s legs making you go past him and also making him look like a complete fool.

To execute this trick just hold the RT button when the defender is in front of you and then press the RB button to make the ball go through the defender’s legs. Do note that if you time this wrong there is a chance of losing the ball.

Run Around: Instead of using flashy tricks you can decide to just run around or over a defender with the ball still in your possession.

You will tap the ball in one direction past the defender and run in the other direction making your way back to the ball. Hold RT and then press RB and push the left stick in the desired direction.

Step On Slide: While stationary push the right stick up or down. It is a useful trick to give you an extra yard of space when trying to get your shot away.

Left Feint: If you are playing with a right-footed player, push and hold the right stick to the left and then push the left stick down.

Knock on: Double push your right stick in the direction you want to knock it to. Perfect for setting up long shots.

Close Control: Holding the LT makes your player take up the dribbling stance in which he can perform flashy tricks to leave his opponents behind. This stance is most effective when you are on the wings trying to cut into the penalty box.

Drag back turn: If you are playing with a right-footed player then while you are still, push and hold the right stick towards left, then push the left stick up.

Back heel Feint: While stationary, push the right stick in a quarter circle to the right followed by pushing the left stick down.

Inside Bounce: While stationary, push the right stick towards the left followed by pushing the left stick to the right.
