Target Passing in Madden NFL 18

Target Passing is a unique feature of Madden NFL 18. The game does not force you to use this move so that makes it an optional mechanic. However, this is a very critical mechanic. If you ace this move, you will turn the table in any match.

Target Passing is basically when you pass the ball in tight windows and throwing timing routes. In such situations, normal passes are near to impossible to deliver so you must use Target Passing because this separates men from boys during online matches.

This adds a new layer of a challenge but if you manage to land it successfully you will really gain an edge over the completion, as very few players know how to perfectly execute Target Passing. Now let us see, how you can master the Target Passing!

Target Passing has three main phases that you must know about. Selecting your primary receiver, moving the target and throwing the ball. To start the Target Passing, you must start the Coach Camera before the play starts. During this mode, you can choose many advanced tactics and one of them is Target Passing. By default, RT on Xbox One and R2 on PS4 will start the Coach Camera.

Once done, you need to select the primary receiver. Select the primary receiver’s corresponding button and you will make them the primary receiver. After this, when the ball has been snapped, you must press L2 or LT to show your target as the primary receiver. You can use LS to move your target in the desired direction. Your Quarterback will change his direction automatically to face the new target if you keep on changing it.

If you press the corresponding button of any other target receiver at this point, the target will automatically change to the new receiver, given that you are still pressing LT or L2.

Now simply press the button of the receiver to throw the ball to the receiver. If during this process, you release LT or L2, it will become Neutral Target Passing and it will not require you to select a target and throw. In this case, you can simply press the button of a receiver and throw the ball to him without any complex target choosing mechanics.

Once you are done, setting up the Target Passing, simply press LT or L2 again and you will exit the Target Passing mode and can see to other mechanics of the game. We would like to remind you again that Target Passing is a complex mechanic and thus the developers have made it optional to use. Practice it a lot if you want to master it otherwise simply use the normal passing mode.
