Two Tips To Take Advantage Of Your Downs in Madden 21
Madden 21 has many similarities with the previous installment of the saga, but now it provides more options to solve complicated situations on offense and in this way take great advantage of each down and be able to reach the touchdown zone.
However, defenders also have a wider list of options to intercept the QB’s passes or capture him if he wants to evade them running, so both sides have more range of action in this new installment.
There is a recourse that is widely used in real life, but little noticed by the newer Madden players, we talk about throwing the ball out of bounds when pressed.
It is normal that in some play the defenders have taken all the receivers and you cannot throw any pass or run away, so the best option to avoid a sack is to throw the ball out of bounds, and that is our first tip.
Throw The Ball Out Of Bounds
To throw the ball away, press the Right Stick in on PS4 or Xbox One. This will make your QB throw the ball out of bounds to the sidelines. You’ll lose a down, but won’t lose the ball via fumble or interception. If you do it right, you also won’t lose any yards.
Throwing the ball out in Madden 21 is very simple, you just have to press the Right Stick button (R3) and the player will directly throw the ball out without giving defensive players a chance to intercept it.
Adding this technique to your repertoire will prevent the opposing defense from pushing you back many yards on plays in which it was almost impossible to advance, leaving you the opportunity to come back on the next down.
No matter how good your QB is, or how many Madden coins you had to buy to make him join your team, there are situations that are impossible to get out of and it is key to know how to detect and solve them in the best way.
As simple as this technique may seem to use, its ability to give new options offensively is wrongly underestimated by many players.
Faking a pass to a receiver can cause one or two defenders to become dislodged and brake lines in order to cut the ball, which can cause a previously covered receiver to go completely free to finish the play.
To make fake passes in Madden 21 you only have to quickly press twice the pass button of any receiver, in this way your QB will make a fake movement that may confuse the defenders and open a space to scrambling with your QB.
Obviously, abusing this technique will make your offense very predictable, so you must use it wisely to be effective.
Madden 21 will hit the stores on August 28, 2020 on PS4, Xbox One and PC. The Madden 21 release date for next-gen consoles PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X hasn’t been confirmed yet. Meanwhile, Madden 21 coins have hit MUTeamGo now, grab some before the starter discount expires.
