How to Hurdle in Madden 23

Hurdle them!

The new FieldSense system in Madden 23 allows you deeper control of players, with more cut animations, gang tackling, and passing control. Ball-carrier moves like stiff arm and juking in Madden 23 still feel very satisfying to pull off and can change the course of a play instantly. Hurdling is one of the more difficult moves to execute, but fully jumping over a defender is worth it.

Here is how to hurdle in Madden 23:

  • PlayStation: Press Triangle
  • Xbox: Press Y
  • PC: Press R

To execute a hurdle over a defender, you must time the hurdle with the defender's tackle attempt. Hurdles are much more effective on defenders going for a dive tackle or a low Hit Stick tackle. Hurdles can still be pulled off on high Hit Stick tackles, but with a much lower chance of success.

Unlike most ball-carrier moves, the hurdle does not have an individual rating for each player. Instead, the Jumping and Juke ratings are most likely used to determine how effective a player's hurdle move is. If you want to pull off a lot of hurdles, try using agile players with high Jumping ratings.

Using the hurdle can be a risky move. You may pick up more yards even if tackled, but you are more prone to fumbling and injury by being tackled during a hurdle. Try to use the hurdle to pick up first downs, avoid defenders diving at you when running down the sideline, and get into the end zone over a defender.
