How to stiff arm in Madden 24

A stiff arm consists of basically pushing a defender, so your ball carrier can continue toward the end zone. The best stiff arms are when the defender is coming from a side, as it's very effective at keeping the defender away from the ball carrier, and it also makes it much harder for him to tackle the ball carrier.

Using this move against a defender coming from the back or the front is not that good. You’ll most likely end up losing the ball, giving the opponents a chance to regain possession or even do a touchdown return.

To make a stiff arm in Madden 24, you need to hold the X button on PlayStation or the A button on Xbox. If you are playing on a PC, you have to hold the E button/key.

Although it can be quite useful on offense, using a stiff arm is not always recommended. The reason for this is that your ball carrier will be vulnerable on the other side, making him an easy target for other defenders. If you use your right arm to stiff a defender, your left side will be unprotected.

You can prevent such a scenario by holding RB or R1 on Xbox or PlayStation or Space bar on PC. The runner will protect the ball with both hands, but it will slow him down.
