Madden 22 returns, as it always does, and brings with it an extremely familiar brand of football with a few new tricks. Football is a complex sport, and thus, its controls can be a bit complicated. If you’re here, you’re probably wondering how to Stiff Arm in Madden 22. Let’s go right into it.
Stiff Arm Button in Madden 22
In order to pull off the Stiff Arm properly, you need to have a defensive player along your sides and close to tackling you. When the runner is within arm’s length of you, press A on Xbox or X if you’re on PlayStation and you’ll Stiff Arm your opponent.
If you time it poorly, you could end up cutting your run short instead, so make sure you’re careful with it.
This move, for those that aren’t aware, is a move commonly used by ball carriers to use their arm as a way to block and push away defenders that are trying to tackle them.
Players run the risk of accidentally (or intentionally) causing a face mask penalty when you use a Stiff Arm, but pay off is shedding a block that would have otherwise ended the play.
In Madden 22, it’s not too common to see this move pulled off because of how fast the game moves, but skilled players can use it when the time is right for it.
