We've explained how players can perform a hurdle in Madden 22.

Madden 22 is meant to be a translation of the American football experience—right down to the player teams, positions, and maneuvers. One such maneuver is the hurdle, which fans should be able to visualize by its name alone. This one move can allow players to quite literally bound away from danger and potentially win a match.

How to Hurdle in Madden 22

To perform a hurdle in Madden 2, players need to press the Triangle button on their PlayStation controller or the Y button on their Xbox controller while a defensive player is rushing toward them.

A hurdle, itself, is exactly what it sounds like. Typically, it is performed by an offensive player attempting to rush the ball toward the defense's end goal. When the defense charges at the offense, the offense can launch themselves over the defense as they're tackling and leave them to faceplant in the turf.

This move is useful in part due to its surprise appeal. It's rare a player is actually able to jump over another and continue their stride toward the goal. No one will expect this move, allowing a clever offense to outwit an overzealous defense. Additionally, if we're being honest, it looks pretty cool to gracefully leap over your opponent.

Madden 22 is available on PC, Xbox One/Series S|X, and PlayStation 4/5.
