Gibs? How is he gonna help you?

I got JOKES. Its a combo of feel and knowing when to lay the RS down. Also if you play with hit power I think the screen "jumps and rocks" a little more making you feel better about the hit.

Don't do it if you don't have help behind you. If it's a one-on-one tackle in the open field you don't wanna whiff and get burned. It really just comes with playing the game. To practice you can play rush attack mini game and just go for the hit stick every time on defense to work on your timing. I would say that I usually just take a good angle at the runner, hold right trigger to turbo, and just lay the wood. You gotta press it about one step before he gets there and he kinda loads up his shoulder and lunges. Sometimes it works better just to wrap up the tackle and hit LB to go for the strip. I hate it when you knock someones head off and they don't fumble, then you tackle by the ankle and it fumbles. Don't do it with CB's, only with LB's and Safeties with hit power. Like farls says, if its a good hit the screen will shake. That's all I got on the subject

Are you guys hit sticking up or down? As a rule I always go down to take out their legs but I've been experimenting with the upper body hit stick lately.

I find the upper body one works best on smaller ball carriers, while going low is your best shot at taking down a power back. Power backs love the upper body hit sticks, since it makes for nice highlight reels for them as they shrug it off LOL

Upper body hit sticks are less likely to get avoided. Lower body hits are gonna get jumped over.

If you use the high hit stick, it feels like you will cause more fumbles. I'm just not used to it because it feels weird trucking a RB..

For me the up hit stick in un natural, so I always go low, which is not as great this year.

Same Farls, this sounds like a good mythbuster question. It seems like high would be better just because that's where the ball is, but 99% of the time I push down.

What he said. Especially if you have a corner up against a hb, go low. LB against WR, go high.
