How to tackle in Madden 24

Based on its tackle advantage algorithm, EA Sports changed the tackling in Madden 24, compared to previous editions of the game. A wrap tackle is now a conservative tackle. You can also lift the player with a scoop tackle. Thanks to new animations, tackling have been improved, so the shorter defenders will tackle the ball carrier’s legs, while you can even hit a receiver in stride.

This is how to tackle in Madden 24.

Tackle your rival in Madden 24

Here is how to tackle in Madden 24:

Conservative ‘Breakdown Tackle’ - Hold X (PS), Hold A (Xbox), Hold E (PC)

Aggressive Dive Tackle - Press Square (PS), Press X (Xbox), Press Q (PC)

Hit Stick - Flick the right stick up when in range of the ball carrier (PS/Xbox), Press W (PC)

Cut Stick (take ball carrier’s legs out) - Flick the right stick down when in range of the ball carrier (PS/Xbox), Press S (PC)

No matter what type of tackle it is, the momentum and approach are crucial. Use the left analogue stick to steer your player toward the ball carrier. Keep an angle that allows you to cut off their path effectively.

Unlike previous years, the hit stick is very risky in all but the most ideal circumstances. However, we have found great success with the cut stick, especially in open field situations.
