For all of Madden 21‘s bells and whistles, there are some mechanics which are more vital to your success than others and which you should know how to execute as soon as possible. That’s why we’re here to walk you through how to sprint and run faster in Madden 21 with a detailed guide.
How to Sprint and Run Faster in Madden 21
As with past installments in the series, sprinting and running faster in Madden is a simple affair.
To get your controlled player to run faster, all you need to do is tilt the left analog stick all the way in the direction that you wish to go. Your player will gradually gain momentum, and after a few seconds will be going at their top standard running speed.
They can then go even faster by sprinting, which is activated by holding down R2 on PlayStation 4 and RT on Xbox One. Doing so will further increase how fast a player is moving, with each player’s stats determining how fast and for how long they can sprint.
When the Best Times to Sprint Are
Of course, it should be noted that there are certain times and places that are better than others to initiate sprints or have your players run faster in Madden 21.
If they have the ball and a clear line to the end zone, then it’s a perfectly acceptable strategy to send your player sprinting at full speed toward a potential touchdown. However, this isn’t always the case, and trying to send your player barreling through obstacles will lead to a less than stellar play.
Keep an eye on the positioning of your opponent, and adjust your players’ running speeds accordingly.
Kicking off a sprint at just the right moment can turn an otherwise minimal gain in yards into a larger one, and drawing your opponent into a specific position with erratic speed changes can likewise put you in a better position for opportune passes.
