Madden 23 is almost here, and although there are many changes, many things remain the same. When you’re on offense, you want to know as many beneficial moves to avoid being tackled. Even with Madden 23, the juke is among the most beneficial offense moves you can control. Thanks to the updates with this latest addition to the franchise, the juke mechanism is smoother and even more realistic than ever. You just have to learn how to use it.
How to Juke in Madden 23
Before Madden 23 launches on August 19, beginners and veteran players alike can use a refresher in some offense controls. Specifically, the juke. It is a move that everyone should know, but not everyone can use it effectively.
Once you understand and memorize the proper controls, the juke in Madden 23 is all about timing. Time it right, and you’ll quickly leave any defender scrambling to keep up.
Here is how anyone who plays on each platform can control the juke:
- PC: Press D to Right Juke, A to Left Juke, and S to Dead Leg Juke
- PlayStation: Right Stick | Left/Right for Juke and Down for Dead Leg Juke
- Xbox: Right Stick | Left/Right for Juke and Down for Dead Leg Juke
Those of you who play on PS5 and Xbox Series X|S can utilize the new FieldSENSE technology. This is what offers a more realistic experience, allowing you to fluidly control how you evade the defender when using the juke in Madden 23.
Extra Juking Tips
Since the juke is such a reliable offense control feature in Madden 23, take care in how you use it. As we mentioned, timing is key. Try to juke too early, and the defense can catch on. Juke too late, and, well, the play will be over pretty fast.
Remember to utilize your turbo running. This can completely change the juke in Madden 23, allowing you to change direction faster to throw off defenders. Also, the Dead Leg Juke is perfect at helping slow down to avoid a tackle, especially a diving tackle. This even helps if a defender is coming in at an odd angle that juking left or right won’t help with.
Also, consider utilizing other offensive moves beyond turbo like the stiff arm. Combos are your best friend.
These are just a few different ways you can juke in the game. The more you practice the juke in Madden 23, the more you’ll learn how versatile it can be to help you get the ball down the field.
Madden 23 is available on August 19, 2022, for PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC.
