How to Perform Dekes

We have mentioned all the controls for Dekes that you can perform in the game. Now, we will be guiding you on how you can perform some of the tricky Dekes easily while playing the game.

Some Dekes are a bit difficult to execute, so we will be guiding how one can tackle such situations.

How to Perform Lacrosse Deke (Michigan)

First, we will be covering the Lacrosse Deke. The best time to use this Deke is when you come towards the rival’s net from behind.

This Deke allows you to move in a free skate mode. First, you need to be at rest while facing forward. Now, press the control for this Deke, as mentioned in the table above.

Keep in mind that you shouldn’t press the control too quickly or too slowly, as this will not allow you to perform the Deke properly. So, your timing must be on spot to make this move effective.

How to Perform Slip Deke

This move is a bit easier to perform than the previous one. The players will want to perform this move when they face their opponent on their way close to the boards.

To perform this move, the players need to press the control for this Deke mentioned above. You will slip through right when you press the controls.

The players should make sure that their timing to press the control must be on spot to pass through the boards with high speed. This allows you to run away from your opponent quickly.

How to Perform Chip Deke

This Deke is also known as jump Deke. This Deke enables you to halt the move of the opponent to stop your breakaways by throwing the skaters. The players should keep in mind that they do not press the above-mentioned control for this Deke randomly.

First, they need to observe the movement of the skater. Otherwise, improper timing for pressing the control will lead to a collision, or you can lose the puck.

How to Perform One Handed Tuck Deke

This Deke helps you to create a space for moving the puck by dragging the opponent to the other side. The players mostly use this Deke when they face the goaltender.

We suggest you perform this Deke in free skate to get the most out of it. When you press the controls, the puck will sweep the puck away before pushing it forwards.

How to Perform Between the Legs Shot Deke

The players use this Deke to confuse the opponents by hiding their puck through fast movements. One can direct the vision of the goalie to one place and then hit towards the empty space as well. The players can use it whenever they get close to the goalie.

When you press the controls, you will find the puck between the legs of the skater. Now, for shooting, just move the analog stick towards the direction of the goal.

How to Perform Board Bank Self Pass

The purpose of this Deke is to come across the goalie one-on-one. The players will want to perform this Deke when they get close to the blueline.

When you press the control to perform this deck, you must press L3 to move back towards the puck. This is because skaters will be repelled back while it is at a good distance from the boards.
