Hints, Secrets, Glitches & Easter Eggs

 

Cheap 99 Ranked Players

Go to the edit player screen, highlight "Speed" and press X(2). Rank all of your players as low as they can be. That way their salary will be around $350,000, depending on position. Then highlight whatever category you want to edit and press X, but do not press X a second time. After you raise the stats to 99, press Triangle to exit that category. Then, move to a new category and do it again. If you hit X a second time, your player's salary will jump back up. You should raise the "Stamina", "Toughness", and "Injury" categories to 99 when you are in the screen where you lower the salary. Otherwise, your players will only be able to be in one play before being substituted, or will get bad injuries with almost every play. If everything works out, you should have about $45 million dollars remaining with a full 55 person roster. Although this does take some time, it is worth it.

Unlimited Creation Points

Create a player, then go to "Edit Player" at the roster screen. Press Up or Down to choose the player you want to edit. Press Right to get to the speed category. Press X, then press X again.

Easy Madden Points

Choose your favorite and least favorite teams. Enter the rosters screen and select the "Edit Player" option. Make everyone on your favorite team a perfect 99 points for everything, then go to you least favorite team's roster and make everyone on their team the minimum 15 for everything. Save your roster changes. Repeatedly play in exhibition mode and do your best; run kickoffs and punts for touchdowns, let yourself get tackled, and run for 96 yards for a touchdown, etc. This can result in over 1000 points in a game.

Getting Madden Cards Easily

You can get all the cards without playing more than two or three games. Make two user accounts; one you plan on keeping and another to just use. Play one or two games with each created account giving them at least 100 Madden points each. Save each one and reset the PlayStation2. When you restart, open your Madden Cards screen, and buy at least a pack of cards for each account. Trade all the cards you want from your dummy account to your permanent account. Exit and the game will prompt you to save what you have done. Answer "OK", and the save screen will appear. Only save the permanent account. Reset the PlayStation2, buy a pack with the dummy account and trade again. Once again, only save the permanent account with the cards. Reset the PlayStation2 and repeat as many times as needed. You should get at least 14 cards each time, and you will be forced to leave one with the dummy account. Only leave Bronze cards, as these will not stay in the dummy account and will be lost.

Always Get The Onside Kick During Kickoff

Turn off the penalty for kicks not over 10 yards. Hold Left and continuously press X. Your players will recover the ball, because it will only travel about 6 yards with your opponent nowhere near.

Always Win Coin Toss

Press Start before anything appears on the coin toss screen.

Control Title Screen

Press Circle at the title screen to change the player picture. Repeat this to view pictures of players from all thirty one teams.

Challenging A Play

You cannot challenge a play on your own. On very rare occasions you will be asked after a play if you would like to challenge a questionable call. It is usually due to a player running out of bounds.

Block Punts

Select "Punt Block", then move three men over to the left. starting with the first man to the right of the center until the end man is not lined up on the safety any more. If done correctly, the three men moved should be blocked on the left end, and the SS and the RB/FB should run in unblocked to stop the punter before he kicks the ball. Select the SS and run at the punter as fast as possible when the ball is snapped. Substitute a fast SS on defensive subs on the punt block play.

Easy Two-point Conversion

After scoring a touchdown choose "Fake FG - Run" as your next play. After hiking the ball, run the receiver right and progressively upwards -- make sure you keep wide of the players on the opposing team. You should be able to make the two-point conversion every time.

All-Madden Difficulty Setting

On the All-Madden difficulty, the CPU intercepts passes very easily. To avoid getting your passes tipped or picked off, throw short passes and pop passes (passes that are thrown almost suddenly after the ball is hiked). Long (Da Bomb) passes will only work occasionally, but will usually get picked off.

Lambeau Leap

Play as the Green Bay Packers at home and run a touchdown. The players will eventually do the Lambeau Leap.

Knock Down People On Sidelines

At the start of a play, run towards one of the sidelines and go slightly out of bounds. When the play begins, run up and down the sideline. After the play has finished, go to "Instant Replay". Go to the appropriate sideline and watch the player you controlled. Sometimes you will knock over the coaches and the people carrying the fist down markers.

Locker Room Entrance

When your opponent is kicking a field goal, select a player and run back to the wall and into the locker room entrance.

Madden Cards

Collect all 296 cards and the 297th will be John Madden. The card's value is 2500 points. Sell the card and buy a new pack. You will receive a John Madden card again. Repeat this until you have as many points as you wish. 2500 points is worth 25 packs. John Madden unlocks the Madden Millennium Team, featuring Mike Ditka as tight end.

Madden Cards

There are three different value levels of the cards: Gold (4), Silver (2), and Bronze (1). The cards each serve one use, except for stadium cards, team cards, and historical players, which are always active. The other cards are for cheat codes and boosting player attributes. Gold Cards last for one half of a game. Sliver Cards last for one quarter. Bronze cards last for a single play. You earn Madden Cards by purchasing them with Madden Tokens. Madden Tokens are earned by accomplishing certain feats during game play. There are five levels of feats to accomplish, and you get more tokens for the higher difficulty level. To get Madden Cards you must make sure that Madden Cards are enabled, either on the profile select screen prior to the game, or on the options menu.

Blocking Field Goals - Alternate

Select field goal block and move your middle linebacker just off of your left dt. You can see where you pick the play he will run over a little bit. You want him to run in between the center and right guard of the offense. You will need to speed run and jump. If you dive instead of jump you will not block the kick and most of the time you will get a roughing the kicker penalty. It doesn't help to put a fast safety there because they don't have the awr. Using this I blocked two field goals and one extra point in one game.

Blocking Fieldgoals

First you will need a fast right end. Then turn of the player lock. Before the other player hikes the ball shift your line to the left. When the other player hikes the ball simple run in and block the kick.

Block Punts

Select "Punt Block", then move three men over to the left. Starting with the first man to the right of the center until the end man is not lined up on the safety any more. If done correctly, the three men moved should be blocked on the left end, and the SS and the RB/FB should run in unblocked to stop the punter before he kicks the ball. Select the SS and run at the punter as fast as possible when the ball is snapped. Substitute a fast SS on defensive subs on the punt block play.

Easy Two-Point Conversion

The following trick works about 95% of the time. It will not work if your receiver does not catch the ball. Put your best receiver as Receiver 3 instead of Receiver 1. Make sure that the play calling screen is on the player's faces. Go to the Receiver 3 category, then go down until you find the Screen Pass. Once you snap the ball, press X to throw it quickly. Make sure you do not let your play go out of bounds.

Easy Sacks

Move your right end to the left side between your left end and left D. Move your right DT in front of the center. Almost every time a pass is thrown, the end will break through and get a sack.

Guaranteed Win

For a really easy win or just insurance in a hard to play game, here's what you do: Turn on easy play, turn off penalties. Turn off the play clock, and start the game. When I am playing the game, I dont like the go-to-guy play book so I hit circle to turn that off. With these features set. You can do the following: At kickoffs you can choose to kickoff left or right, then set your aimer to the very corner of the in-bound field. Next, set the arrow as far as possible, and kick it with full power. This, if done right, will get the team very close to their own endzone, for an easy safety or fumble. You can also: select onside kick left or right, set the arrow all the way to the direction you selected, and press X ONCE! You can easily recover for an easy offensive run. ( This will also give you Madden points for kicking and recovering an onside kick!)
