We all love it, but we even know that it is not easy to play like a boss and win every game. So, here are some tips and tricks compiled to help you succeed and will almost every match you play.

Pass and move

This is not a secret tip, but you need to focus on it more than ever because PES 2018 is quick and sensitive. Your finger tips should be ready to make quick passes and keep moving. Even if you have the best player (for us it is Messi), you need to be really quick.

And yes, start practicing it. Slowly and steadily you will be able to move the ball quickly. After all, you need skill and sharp responses for the same.

Balanced Team

Building our favorite team is easy, but one should not assume that our favorite team is balanced. Yes, we are leaving out someone because we don’t know much about their abilities (or let’s face it! We hate them and so we don’t want them in our regular team).

Apart from players, we need to focus on the formations too.

Plan to defend

We want to score more and win more. However, it is important to defend better if you want to win an important game. To defend well, you need to contain your opponents. You can do this by attempting to push players towards the wings. Here, make sure that you send a second player and pressure your opponent. You can send a second player by holding square (PS4) and X (XBOX).

Another important point here is – you should never try to commit to every tackle. Save your energy and strategy for the crucial ones.


PES 2018 is a superior game, and there are infinite ways to score. The game makes your shooting crisp and sharp. However, the finesse shots take practice. So, it is important to practice such shots. When in a game, practice shots even while playing with a lesser-known team (if you are winning the game).

Pace control

This can be difficult at the start. However, once you get used to playing, you can expect controlled shots that reach the target.

Tip: When starting out, you should try and bring players into the game to control midfield battles. Sprinting all the time won’t help. In fact, it will make things worse for you. Stamina issues are here to stay, and you can expect this little reason to destroy your game. So, no more superhuman running is possible. You can hurt your favorite players and lose games if you jam the sprint button. So, control your speed and perfect your aim.

Concluding, if you think that you can play like a boss without these tricks, you might be frustrated with back to back losses. So, learn something out of this post and make the most of it.
