Frustrate Your Opponent In Madden 18 With This Play

In today’s free Madden School tip, we are going over a bit of a gimmick play.  It is one of the most frustrating plays to stop in Madden 18 if you don’t know it is coming.

We’ve got the full breakdown below.

Madden 18 Gimmick Play: Gun Monster - Inside Zone

Playbook: Cleveland Browns (Ravens and Bengals too)

Formation: Gun Monster

Play: Inside Zone

Setup: None required

Overview: This play gets extremely good blocking and will frustrate your opponent.  You can’t audible in this formation so if your opponent figures out how to stop it, you will be stuck.  You will want to quick snap the ball as soon as you can so your opponent can’t manually move defenders around.

Let’s take a closer look at how this play works.  Or check out this easy blitz that brings quick pressure in Madden 18.

This is generally how the play will look right before you snap the ball.  Notice how spread out the defense is.

Right away you see our offensive lineman are getting really good blocks and we’ll have a huge running lane.

Our running back is in the open field at this point.

We finally get tackled after about a 20 yard gain.

  1. What other offensive play books is this play in? I have only seen it in the Browns as you said in the video.

      1. Thanks for the quick response!

  2. How can I do my audibles in the 3-4 defense without having to before I play my opponent “” I can whit a specific team but not when it comes to the 4-6 , 3-4 , cover 2 , and multiple d !!!

  3. to stop the play slant d line to the opposite side of the RB. any defense works. just make sure they don’t break through to the second level or they are gone. if you’re confident , run blitz to that side

  4. 4-3 def: Cover Man 1, Blitz … Main thing you want to do is PINCH your Line. if they are running.
    4-4 Def: Cover man 1 -2, Blitz.. Pinch your line,
    Nickel Def: Cover Man, ect. Pinch your line..
    you can Blitz but make sure you have coverage for the outside pass ..if P.A make sure your CB is man to man coverage.

    offense can only run P.action or inside Run.
    The formation on offense is called MONSTER or MONSTER STACK it is not a wildcat.
