How to Slide in Madden 22

It’s as simple as pressing the X button on Xbox and the Square button on PlayStation. Remember that you should only press and release to slide.

How to Dive in Madden 22

Now, if you hold the X or Square button, you will perform a dive instead of a slide.

Should You Dive or Slide?

It really depends on the situation of the match and the position of your players and the opponent players. Usually, dives are used when you are close to submitting a touchdown and the enemy defenders are closing in from behind.

On the other hand, when you are in need of more yards, and the opponent defenders are in front of you, then a slide will be more useful than a dive.

Madden 22 is now available on PS4, Xbox One, PS5, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, and PC. If you don’t have an active EA Play/Xbox Game Pass Ultimate membership, or you have not pre-ordered one of the expensive versions of the game, you should wait until August 22 to play it.
