Maybe you learned the passing and moving mechanics in Madden 23, but don’t forget that both of them can’t succeed without kicking skills. Field goals are one of the most overlooked parts of any Madden game, but they can make all the difference in the world at the end of a game. So in this article, we will show you how you can kick a successful field goal in Madden 23.
Three things impact how far you can kick a field goal.
Pushing the left stick down to change the trajectory of the kick and give it a little more distance
Your kicker’s kick power rating
Let’s go through these three things that matter and explain them in a little more detail.
Push The Left Stick Down
This is pretty self-explanatory. Use the left stick to aim your kick towards the right or left, based on the kick trajectory on the screen. Push down the left stick if you want long-distance kicks.
Kick Power Rating
In order to determine the maximum field goal distance for your kicker, just multiply his kick power rating by .65. Here is an example: A kicker with 94 kick power: .65 x 94 = 61.1-yard max field goal distance. It works extremely well for you to calculate with just some simple multiplication easily. Justin Tucker is deservedly the highest-rated kicker in the game at 90 overall. He has 99 ratings in kicking power and kicking accuracy, making him easily the most elite option. Spend some madden 23 coins to get him that could make all the difference in MUT 23.
Wind Impacts Field Goals
Wind can also play a very important role. The calculation for wind is for every 13 miles per hour of wind, you gain or lose 5 yards of max distance. So it is as simple as 13 divided by 5 = 2.6. That means that for every 2.6 miles per hour of wind, you gain or lose 1 yard. We make this much easier if the wind is at our back, helping us add 1 yard of max distance for every 3 miles per hour. This way, you will never be overly optimistic about how far you can kick when the wind is helping you, and you will always have a little extra room in your calculation when the wind is working against you.
Last, practice will be what it takes to succeed. You can go into the Skills Practice Mode for Special Teams and specifically practice field goals. This kind of small thing separates the great Madden players from the good.
