Diving or performing a dive is one of the basic moves of Rugby/Football and the move is also available in Madden NFL 22. You perform the dive because it’s the safest way to get the ball over the line. When bending to touch the ball to the ground, you stand the risk of losing the ball. A dive is also quicker than bending. Most players perform the dive not due to it being secure but because it’s quicker. As you play Madden 22, you will find yourself in situations when you need to use the dive. So, you must be wondering how to dive in Madden 22.

Another important thing to note is that the control for the slide and dive is the same in the game with a slight difference that players may fail to note. When you want to perform the dive, you need to hold the button for a while longer, 2 seconds and the player will dive.
As it’s with most parts of the game, the timing of the dive will judge its effectiveness. When not timed correctly, the dive can backfire getting the player injured or you could fumble.
