How to Do Stiff Arm in Madden 24 (Xbox, PlayStation, PC)

How To Stiff Arm In Madden 24

The stiff arm is a practical move in Madden for ball carriers to push away defenders and gain extra yards. Executing a stiff arm is easy – hold down the following button while running with the ball:

  • Xbox – A button
  • Playstation – X button
  • PC – E button

By holding the button, your ball carrier will stick out the arm, not carrying the ball and shoving away an approaching defender.

When to Use the Stiff Arm

The stiff arm can be highly effective, but only if used properly. Here are some tips on when to deploy it:

  • Use against defenders approaching from the side: Stiff arms work best when pushing away defenders coming from the side of the ball carrier. Using it against a defender head-on or from behind is less effective.
  • Consider the best recovery time: There is a brief recovery period after using a stiff arm before it can be used again. Time multiple stiff arms properly when facing multiple defenders.
  • Pick your moment: The stiff arm can be used both as a runner bursts through a hole or in an open space. Find the right opportunity to fend off a tackle.
