Calf Dribble EA FC 24

An EA FC 24 glitch has completely “broken the game,” as it allows players to get free goals with what the community is calling the ‘calf dribble.’

EA FC 24 is a very competitive game, especially if you like to grind Ultimate Team modes such as Division Rivals and Champions. Scoring more than your opponent is the aim, but it can be a lot more difficult than you’d expect, as you’ll need some experience and skill to beat some of the better players.

Often, players will find cheeky new ways to break down their opponent’s defense, either through the kick-off glitch, free kicks, or even the new calf dribble bug. This new glitch allows players to score easy goals, as the ball gets stuck to the player’s calf, giving them free rein to sprint straight into the goal.

Players are claiming this calf dribble glitch has “broken the game,” however, luckily, devs have quickly responded to this Ultimate Team broken glitch.

EA FC 24 devs respond to calf dribble glitch

In an X post made on October 20, the EA Sports FC Direct Communication account confirmed that to prevent the EA FC 24 calf dribble glitch from occurring, they will “temporarily remove the Trickster+ PlayStyle,” which means players will only have the base version of Trickster equipped instead.

Additionally, they shared that once this issue is addressed in a “future Title Update,” the Trickster+ PlayStyle will be added back to applicable players.

Besides the quick response, this marks the first occasion where the EA FC 24 dev team will remove a PlayStyle+ from the game, which overlaps right before the beginning of a new UT Champions edition.

Once the glitch is fixed, we’ll be sure to update this piece so stay tuned. For now, if you want to read more on EA FC, make sure you also check out our complete guide on Ultimate Team packs or Trailblazers’ promo Team 2.
