Being an effective quarterback in Madden 22 requires you to have pinpoint accurate reflexes and being able to move freely inside of your pocket on the field. However, pumping a fake is just as important and this is how you can do so in Madden 22.
Madden NFL 22: How to Pump a Fake
You, in the previous Madden articles, could pump those scythes who were holding your receivers to interrupt their jump by pretending to pass the ball to their receiver that they were blocking. Players could utilize this strategy and let the catcher make a wide shot by seeing the clearance.
You can pump a scythe by double-pressing the corresponding button of the receiver behind that lineman to make him jump. You can do this by double-pressing X, Y, A, or B for Xbox. These buttons are pressed in correspondence to the receiver.
You can also fake bomb by pressing RB on Xbox consoles. If you are playing on a PlayStation, then you need to press any buttons on top of the R1 buttons (Cross, Circle, Rectangle, Triangle) buttons.
You should keep in mind to press the respective button of the receiver that you want to fake quickly. If you do not press it quickly the second time, your character might make the pass. You can also use dummy bomb to make the defender cancel the pitch and run into a disadvantageous position.
