I just took a penalty and the directional arrow wasn't on my screen. How do I get it up?

    Yeah for me it seems quite random. It seems like when you hit a couple terrible ones the game feels you need help again.

    I think the plan was to never show it online, but they messed that up completely. On PC you can always press UP and let it show the arrow, on XBOX you can never do that and on PS it seems quite random :D

    I thought they would definetely hide it for online, so I always deactivated it while learning pens on the demo, you don´t need it once you mastered the pens, so get practicing and not blaming a loss on pens on a missing arrow

    I've never been great a pens, some how scored that one without a pointer but I feel I need it lol
  • I had the arrow while doing drafts, but once I reached the final, it's gone. Maybe it's their mechanics?

    I like this new way of taking penalties, but it is unbelievably hard, I guess it only gets easier with more practice.
  • Hi, how do you turn off the arrow on ps4? Sometimes it's there in multiplayer and i would like to turn it off completely since we already mastered it.

    Unbelievable that no one from EA reacts to this question.
    For me it was the same: i play an online womencup game. During the 90 minutes my arrow was visible. During penalty shoot out it suddenly wasn't there.
    i lost to someone who won division 1 5 times and last year 78 times. Coincidence?

    Btw, i messaged my opponent, and for him the arrow was visible.
    So how come?
    I start to believe it isn't random on my ps4 fifa, but it is there to be part of scripting.

    if it's a bug, they would have fixed it. If it's part of the mechanics, they would have explained it.

    See its this type of garbage that EA need to fix.

    No way is it fair that one player has the penalty arrow visible and not for the other player in the same shootout.

    I've still never seen it. I think I'd find it distracting now.

    I never get it as the away team but get it about 80% of the time when I'm the home team.

    This.

    On or off, don't mind; just needs to be the same for both players.

  • To get the arrow to pop up at least on Xbox One you need to turn on the trainer. That works for me while taking the kick. Think it's click on the left or right analog stick. Worked in pro clubs as of Feb 14 2017

    Only heard about the arrows in the forum, never saw them in-game :sweat_smile:
    I'm curious, what was your longest shoot-out? Yesterday a played a game that ended 10-9 for me, it was really intense.
  • I have never had the arrow in ultimate team neutral: I'm just lucky my SIF Lukaku has 99 penalties... <3
