Football is a passing game, and while you can run the ball effectively this year, having the best QB release in Madden 24 is crucial to victory. There's nothing quite like beating a blitz by firing a bullet to your hot read and getting a touchdown in the process.

Every QB has a slightly different throwing motion, with some taking an age to loop their arm around while others are compact and precise. With how aggressive defenses are, especially in H2H online, getting the ball out fast is incredibly important.

Best QB Releases in Madden 24

The best QB releases in Madden 24 are the following:

Traditional 4
Slinger 1
Slinger 3
Traditional 2
Traditional 1

As mentioned above, there are plenty of QBs in Madden 24, and all of them have different strengths and weaknesses. Some might be better at deep passes, while others thrive in short and accurate throws.

But the most important thing in a QB is its release. Before picking your QB in Madden 24, you should first check its release type and make sure he possesses one of the five releases listed above.

Some QBs might have bad attributes but have spectacular releases such as traditional 4 or slinger 1, and in some cases, a great release makes up for the lack of attributes.

If the QB you are using has a bad release, you will feel its effects, as it will be tough to get the ball out of his hands if the opponent is blitzing or sending pressure.

This makes it much harder to play, especially online, and also limits the options you have in the passing game, making your offensive strategy more predictable.

However, it's worth noting that the Gunslinger ability can turn a bad release into a great one, as it increases the passing animation speed.

Here are some QBs in Franchise Mode with the best releases in Maden 24:

Lamar Jackson (Traditional 4)
Joe Flacco, Aaron Rodgers, and Dak Prescott (Slinger 1)
Josh Allen, and Anthony Richardson (Slinger 3)
C. J. Stroud, and Joe Burrow (Traditional 2)

QBs With The Best Releases in Ultimate Team

Ultimate Team is the most popular mode in Madden 24 partially because it allows players to use retired legends of the game, and the QB position is very important.

Here's a list of QBs that have one of the five best releases in Madden 24:

Lamar Jackson, Bo Jackson, Air McNair, and Doug Williams (Traditional 4)
Joe Flacco, Aaron Rodgers, Dak Prescott, Michael Vick, and Jordan Love (Slinger 1)
Josh Allen, Anthony Richardson, and Troy Aikman (Slinger 3)

These QBs are some of the best in MUT, and their great release plays a big part in that.

How to Speed Up a QB Release in Ultimate Team

If your favorite quarterback doesn't have one of these releases, you can still speed up their throwing action.

To do that you will need to put the Gunslinger ability on them under the upgrade tab on their card. This is usually found in the third ability slot and will cost around 650 training and 2 AP to activate.
