The passing game is a vital part of any offense in the NFL, but one wrong move can lead to an interception and a turnover on the offense’s end. In order to avoid any potential mishaps, users can throw a high pass to avoid throwing the football right to a defender. Instead, you’ll put the ball where only your receiver can get it. So, how do you throw a high pass in Madden 23? Let’s take a look at the controls.

Madden 23 high pass controls

To start off, you’ll want to make sure that you press and hold either LB (for Xbox) or L1 (for PlayStation). We should point out that in Madden NFL 23, there are two different pass modifiers. The controls we laid out above are for high passes. If you need to throw a low pass, hold LT/L2 instead.

For a high pass, you will want to press and hold the bumper. Then, find a receiver that you want to throw to, and press the button that is indicated above that individual. If you follow these steps, the QB should throw a high pass to the receiver. And, this works for touch, lob, and bullet passes in Madden 23.

As we mentioned earlier, high passes can be a useful tool. High passes are great in instances where you don’t have as much space between the receiver and defender and want to put the ball in a place where the receiver can get it, but the defender can’t.

Just make sure you remember the control differences between low and high throws. Otherwise, you may wind up pressing the wrong button and be in a tough situation.
