How to Stop the Nano Blitzes out of 4-3, 3-4, Dime formations – Madden NFL 16

Today I am joined by The Wop to discuss how to shut down nanos from the 4-3, 3-4 and Dime defenses. We show what to look for and how to pass against the sets. I shut his 94 overall squad with screaming heat down with my 50ish starter squad showing the ineffectiveness of blockshedding on pass rushes this year.

Here’s a nickel 3-3-5 wide nano blitz in Madden NFL 16

Here’s the nano set up from Games_and_Dames on the mut subreddit:

Any play works. It’s universal. I like Cover 4 or 2. Fastest acceleration OLB or DE at RE.

1. Base Align
2. Pinch Line
3. Move ROLB (left of screen OLB) out until his blitz angle changes.
4. Crash DL

Now this blitz will work with B gap just like this but you can take it up a whole ‘nother notch by doing the following.

1. Control RE (left of screen DE) and move him one click inside towards DT.
2. Hold LT+RT together. This is a workaround to get a turbo jump.
3. When you fly through the LG just sprint towards the QB and dive.

The downfall is having to user your DE but it’s so fast it doesn’t matter with 7 in coverage sometimes.



Today we talk about the distinction between Nanos vs Overload blitzes in Madden 16 Ultimate Team and why some need to be removed while other “fast” heat is okay to stay in the game.

Here’s the final 4-3 under set up I showed evolving in the video.
Play: Cross fire 3
base align
shift line right
crash line down
Right Defensive end (Left on screen) in QB spy
ROLB (left on screen) in flat/any zone you’d like
Voila – 4 man pressure (although it is slide-able) Last two steps are only necessary for better coverage.
