How to drift in Star Wars: Squadron will keep you alive longer in this space battle simulator. It's a question that gamers are trying to find an answer to after the new EA Sports title recently released.

Star Wars: Squadrons is the new EA Sports title giving Star Wars fans the ultimate space battle experience. Releasing in early October, the game features the ability for players to fight on both sides of the legendary battle, as well as complete an eight-week competitive battle pass.

Seeing that these battles take place in space, it's an important feature for players to understand how to boost and drift. It will help massively in dogfight (aerial) situations. It may seem like a difficult move to master when players are first introduced, so here's a broken-down version to simplify.

How to Drift in Star Wars: Squadrons

The first step in drifting is giving power to your ship engine to accomplish this press left on the d-pad. After that push the left stick forward to hit maximum speed. At top speed, press L3 to start boosting, while doing this hold the right stick in the direction you want to drift (left or right) and you will initiate the move.

Practice this out in campaign before heading over to the Operations battle pass.
