Learning how to slide and dive is a key part of running the ball in Madden NFL 22, but the controls can be a little awkward if you're not used to them. The slide and dive controls are still the same as last year, so it's pretty easy to get used to if you play Madden regularly. Here's how to slide and dive in Madden NFL 22.
How to Slide in Madden NFL 22
To slide into Madden 22, all you have to do is press the Square button on PlayStation or the X button on Xbox. You have to press the button lightly if you want to slide. Holding it too long will perform a dive instead.
For QB Slide, you must first rush out of the pocket with your quarterback holding R2/RT. This will allow you to sprint with your QB. Once you get past the line of scrimmage, you can press Square/X to slide.
How to dive in Madden NFL 22
To dive into Madden 22, hold the Square/X button on PlayStation/Xbox while sprinting. It's the same button as the swipe. The only difference is how long you hold the button. To recap, pressing the Square/X button will drag, while holding it down will dive.
Just like the slide, you'll need to make sure you're past the line of scrimmage before attempting to dive. If you are still behind the line, your QB will attempt to pass the ball since the pass uses the same button as the dive.
Madden NFL 22 is available now on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and Google Stadia.
