    Ok so I’m a 81 overall playmaker and I’ve got over 350+ double move leading to score assists (because that’s all I’ve done from the beginning of my career) but yet I don’t have dimer or ankle breaker can anyone explain?

    Hi! Thanks for your “How to”. It’s quite helpful!
    I did everything you did, but hardly did 300 passes after double move. Could it be 250, I don’t know, but sure not 300.
    Same goes to Alley-oop passer, which was the easy one.

    Anyway, keep up with the site!

    so what you do is pray to harambe, and what you have to say is; “give me the power to ankle break” and then all you do is start twerking and ride your controller furiously, then the most important part: turn your console off, go buy a pc then you are a pro.

    You don’t have to get an assist. that is Wrong. You can get the badge by just doing a double move and then just shoot. The only reason an assist is useful is for trying to get dimer at the same time as ankle breaker. But please understand that it is much easier to get “double move leading to score” by just simply pressing (down, down)
    and then shooting. (rookie difficulty)

    Do your assists of double move and shots made off double move add together? Example: 100 shots made off double move and 100 assists off double move= 200 if they add together.

    You don’t have to assist you can score yourself. Many you tubers have on tape that they unlocked ankle breaker by scoring themselves.

    I have been doing double moves to assists like 300 times, and it still hasn’t unlocked?? I’m a 90 overall pg playmaker, and my playmaking is all the way up. I’m confused as to why I can’t get it.
