Understanding each pass type in Madden 24 will give you an advantage regardless of the defensive formation your opponent sets up on each play. Here are all the details on how to throw high, low, lob, and bullet passes in Madden 24, as well as some recommendations for each of them.

If you’re one of the many new players of Madden 24, you should first learn some basics before hitting the field or learning advanced skill moves such as throwing passes. While you can score many touchdowns without necessarily passing to your receivers, mastering this Quarterback’s skill will expand your strategy.

There are multiple types of passes, like lateral or touch passes, but to start in Madden 24, we recommend focusing on just four: the low, high, lob, and bullet passes. Each of these passes serves a purpose and is executed by pressing different inputs.

Here’s a comprehensive guide with all you need to know about how to throw passes in Madden 24.

How to throw a low pass in Madden 24

To throw a low pass in Madden 24, you need to press the receiver icon while holding L2 on PlayStation controllers or LT on Xbox.

By doing this, your Quarterback will throw a pass very close to the ground, giving your opponent’s defender fewer opportunities to catch the ball. This type of pass is used in quick plays to gain a few extra yards.

How to throw a high pass in Madden 24

To play a high pass in Madden 24, you must press the receiver icon while holding L1 or LB.

This type of pass is quite similar to the low pass, but on high passes, your Quarterback will aim at your receiver’s head height. If caught correctly, this type of pass will give more opportunities for your receiver to keep running toward the end zone.

How to throw a lob pass in Madden 24

To throw a lob pass in Madden 24, you just need to press the receiver icon.

These passes are those spectacular throws by the Quarterback that travel between 20 and 30 yards before being caught by the receivers. Lob passes are used to bypass the entire defensive line of the opposing team and avoid any interceptions or turnovers.

To throw bullet passes in Madden 24, you just need to press and hold the receiver icon.

The quarterback will release the ball swiftly, reaching the target with maximum speed. This is the quickest method for delivering the ball to your receivers. Additionally, you can execute high and low bullet passes by holding both the L1/LB or L2/LT buttons with the corresponding receiver input.
