What is Lengthy in FIFA 23?

Lengthy in FIFA 23 is a new acceleRATE type.

The new Hypermotion 2 Technology has brought acceleRATE types into the game and there are currently three types in FIFA 23: explosive, controlled, and lengthy.

For a player to become lengthy, they must have 65 or more strength with their agility being 14 stat points lower than their strength. They must also be 5’9 or taller.

You can learn more about the other acceleRATE types in our in-depth guide.

Is Lengthy on PS4 & Xbox One?

The lengthy attribute is not available for PS4 and Xbox One players.

This is because the acceleRATE feature is only available on the newest generation of consoles which use HyperMotion2 realistic gameplay technology (PS5, Xbox Series X, S, and PC).

Now that you know which meta players are lengthy, you will need the best FUT formation and custom tactics, so you can win even more games!

If you discover any other players who can become lengthy, make sure to leave a comment and let us know!
