In this Madden 23 guide, we'll break down how to perform a celebration run. It's a little more involved than regular celebrations, but is still quite easy for players to pull off. Once you know how to do it, it's another skill to add to your repertoire of abilities in Madden 23!

How do I celebration run in Madden 23?

Performing a celebration run in Madden 23 is very easy. All you need to do is hold down both shoulder buttons on your controller, alongside the A button on Xbox consoles or X button on PlayStation.

If you hold all of these inputs in the correct sequence, the runner currently on the ball will start showboating on their way to the score zone. The specific celebration run style varies from player to player. Some will hop and skip, while others will shimmy as they approach the touchdown zone.

One thing to note, however, is that performing a celebration run in Madden 23 will slow you down significantly. Your player will run nowhere near as fast as they would in a regular out-and-out sprint. Therefore, you need to be very careful when you decide to perform a celebration run. If you aren't doing it with a particularly quick player, or a defender is fast approaching, things could easily go wrong. There's nothing quite as embarrassing as being tackled to prevent a touchdown while showboating!

However, if you're miles away from any pursuers and look likely to score a touchdown with ease, the celebration run can be a way to show off as you approach the goal zone. You of course won't get any bonus points for showboating, but it will no doubt rile up your opponent. If you're sprinting to score a last-minute winner, it'll definitely cause a stir.

Doing a celebration run in Madden 23 really is as easy as that! There's no further difficulty required, other than using your intuition to decide whether now is the time to perform it or not. Fast, agile players will be best to use it for, as they can likely maintain the pace to stave off defenders. Just remember that the slowdown can be the difference between a tackle or a touchdown!
