Madden 21 Superstar X-Factors full list has leaked.

The Superstar X-Factor system debuted last year in Madden 20. Superstar traits are varying passive skills that Madden Superstars possess. X-Factors are the most elite Superstar players, and their X-Factor ability is a sort of "ultimate" ability that triggers once the player has completed certain tasks listed in game. QB's need to complete a certain number of passes to trigger their X-Factor, pass-rushers need to get a certain number of sacks to trigger theirs, etc. It works like being "on fire" in other sports games.

EA has announced that the feature is returning, calling it Superstar X-Factor 2.0. Although EA hasn't revealed a list of Superstar X-Factor players and abilities yet, it appears that the list has leaked.

Madden 21 Superstar X-Factors: Everything You Need to Know

Last week, Madden School leaked a full list, later reported by Forbes, of Madden 21 Superstar X-Factors. If the list is correct, there will be 50 X-Factor players in Madden 21. Every team has at least one, and the NFL Champion Kansas City Chiefs have the most with five.

There are a number of returning Superstar X-Factor players and abilities, but Madden 21 appears to be adding some new ones as well. Reigning NFL MVP and Madden 21 cover athlete Lamar Jackson is getting his own unique X-Factor ability. Truzz, titled after his nickname, makes it impossible for Jackson to fumble while his X-Factor is active.

Until an official reveal from EA, it is safe to assume that these are the new Madden 21 Superstar X-Factor abilities.
