How to Big Hit Tackle in Madden 24

To achieve a big hit tackle in Madden NFL 24, you must push L3 + R3 in the same direction and in the direction in which you are tackling the player. When you are close to the player or in range of a normal tackle, instead of pressing the square button, push the two analog sticks together.

Your defender will either hit the player and perform specific animations, such as picking the player up and dropping him on the ground. Or knock him back and stop the extra yards gained on the tackle.

When is the Best Time to Use a Big Hit Tackle in Madden NFL 24?

The best time to perform a big hit tackle in Madden 24 is when you are facing the player straight on. If you are on the side of the player, there’s a strong chance you could miss the tackle. If you miss the tackle, getting your player up for another challenge will take time.

It’s also a dangerous play to make if you have no teammates behind you to cover if the big hit misses. Why it’s important to know how to hit a player with a big hit tackle is that you stand a higher chance of forcing an error and possibly a fumble. It works best when you’ve sacked the Quarterback.

Tip:

If you equip any of the defensive line players with the ability to increase the chances of a fumble on a tackle, big hit tackles will increase the chances of fumbles even more.

If you sack the QB and he loses the ball, you could be home free and running the ball to the touchline for a touchdown. It gives all Madden players a stronger chance of scoring when playing defense.

Another reason why you should know how to use the big hit tackle is for Madden Ultimate Team challenges. There are a number of challenges that require you to perform a big hit in order to collect all of the stars. 

The last reason is the feeling of pure joy you get when you hit another player hard on the field. Pure joy, euphoria, and pleasure. There, you have what it takes to hit big tackles on players in Madden 24.
