Madden 21: Important Tips On How To Succeed

Madden 21 Important Tips

Understand The Basics

Understanding the basics of Madden 21 is quite self-explanatory, but may perhaps be one of the most significant aspects. There are actually different controls for unique offensive positions. Study how to low pass, high pass, bullet pass, and touch pass. Pump fake and scrambling are essential QB features. RB players can hurdle, juke, and spin.

Know Players

The final tip we’ve got to offer you future gridiron gurus will be to know who has the ball, their strengths, and their weaknesses. Whilst all players have this huge repertoire of moves accessible to them, it must go without the need of saying that not all athletes are produced equal and that’s accurate in Madden, as well.

Madden 21 Tips 1

Protect The Football

Fumbling the football could be much more deflating than a Patriots ball boy, so it really is crucial to know when to cover the ball and protect it from being stripped away from you. You may use “RB” or “R1” on Xbox and PS4 respectively to cover the ball, which improves your probabilities of not losing it. Defenders have the capacity to go for the strip with their very own button press, so when the game is around the line or you’ve got a specifically grabby opponent, it’s sensible to obtain applied to maintaining it cradled.

Compete With QB

When a passing play breaks down and you have got a true dual-threat around the field like, say, Tom Brady, you are going to choose to know how to tuck the ball away and run it to avoid the sack. To do this, point exactly where you should go using the left stick and hold the ideal shoulder button (RT/R2). Your QB will probably be off towards the races, and assuming you have got someone like Russell Wilson or Patrick Mahomes under center, they might be just as dangerous on the ground as they’re using the air.

Building Roster

Do not rush your selection in regards to the MUT Captains, and pay interest for your MUT Master all through the year. Just like Madden 20, Ultimate Team players will be capable to choose a MUT Captain to construct their team around in the early stages of the game.

New Pass Rush Moves

The biggest on-field change in Madden 21 is the full arsenal of pass rush moves that have been remapped on the controller. Edge rushers and defensive linemen disrupt the offensive flow more effectively than ever, but only if you know how to use all the new controls. We’ve listed them below.

The Yard: Experiment With Different Prototypes

The Yard is the best part of Madden NFL 21, but to really take advantage of its new gameplay techniques, you want to spend time with the various Prototypes. These are the in-game character builds exclusively to The Yard. Each one has unique base skills and then can be made better by leveling them up. What’s important to know is that you’re not bound to just one of them.

The Yard: Get Points

It’s not just Prototypes that rewrite the rules of Madden within The Yard. It’s actually almost everything. One of the most important changes comes on the scoreboard. Though touchdowns are still six points, little else is familiar. There is no kicking in The Yard, so point-after attempts come in 1-, 2-, or 3-point conversions from the 5-, 10-, and 20-yard line respectively.

Face of the Franchise: Change Your Position

This year’s Face of the Franchise is the best Madden story in series history. Though not without issues, one of the reasons it’s so much fun is it allows players to pick from three high-profile positions rather than get funneled into the QB spot.

Face of the Franchise: Build The Superstar

The road to the pro league is long and winding, but once you’re there, your options really open up for how you’ll fare throughout your NFL career. One way to ensure you’re in the best position to succeed is to define your own traits. Great players gain access to X-Factor abilities, and as a potentially great player, you’re given the chance to assign your own X-Factor in addition to two passive Superstar abilities.

Madden 21 Tips 3

Defensive Schemes

Many players simply don’t understand defense. The offense is simple enough. Your wideouts run these routes and you throw it to one of them when they’re open. There’s more to it than that, but most players grasp at least that. But the gist of playing defense, i.e. play art full of differently colored circles, arrows, and other labels can be a puzzle for many. To better get a grasp on the sport when you don’t have the ball, use the Skills Trainer (under Exhibition) and practice the defensive concepts such as Cover 2, Cover 3, Cover 4, Cover 6, and zone versus man coverages.
