In Mario Strikers: Battle League, every game is essentially a battlefield. Goals are often rewarded to the team who can command a stronger physical presence. While you spend plenty of time tackling opponents, you can actually use your teammates as a tool to take down the opposition. Let’s take a look at how to do a Team Tackle in Mario Strikers: Battle League.

How to Team Tackle in Mario Strikers: Battle League

Doing a Team Tackle in Mario Strikers: Battle League is essentially the same process as a normal tackle on an opponent, but instead, you aim toward a friend. Press Y when aimed at a teammate, and your character will slide into them. Instead of knocking your teammate down, this will propel them forward, giving a slight speed boost and hitting any opponents in their path out of the way. The Team Tackle is more potent if you hold down Y and charge it.

Team Tackles are good to use on both offensive and defensive sides. When your teammate has the ball, use the Team Tackle to get them through a path of enemies trying to stop them. On defense, this is a great way to get the ball back in your possession.

Using the Team Tackle is a simple but useful tool that you will want to take advantage of in tight situations. It can be a situational move because you need all the pieces to be in place, but when everything lines up are there, be sure to use it.
