Whether you’re playing on an NFL field, or in The Yard, popping the ball out of a ball carrier’s hand is a pretty important thing. Here is what you need to know about how to strip the ball in Madden 21.
How to Strip the Ball in Madden 21
So to be clear fumbles can happen at any point during gameplay if you take a hit, especially a hard one. Every player has skill with carrying the ball and are more or less fumble prone depending on their attributes.
That said, you can try and force a skill check of sorts instead of waiting for a random fumble to occur by going for a ball strip.
To strip the ball as a defender, press R1 on PS4 or RB on Xbox One when you’re in tackling range of an offensive player with the ball.
Just because you do all this does not mean that you will get a fumble every time. Your defender can fail, and potentially remove himself out of position to get a tackle.
If there’s open space, the offensive player can then book it for some serious yards. In addition, you also run the risk of the defender missing and accidentally committing a face mask penalty.
So definitely be careful when choosing to strip the ball in Madden 21 and try to save it for opportunities where a stripped ball can really change the course of the game into a positive direction for you.
That’s all you need to know for how to strip the ball in Madden 21 for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
