Madden NFL 25 - Top 5 Offensive Formations

Published 1 year, 1 month ago by ZFarls & SGibs

Each year new formations are added to the series, and each year we spend countless hours testing out the most effective ones. Here are the best.

5 I-FORM HULK
4 PISTOL FULL HOUSE TE
3 GUN SPLIT PANTHER
2 GUN BUNCH HB STR
1 GUN WING TRIPS OFFSET

5 I-FORM HULK

Offense

THIS FORMATION CAN BE FOUND IN THE COLTS PLAYBOOK.

The I-Form Hulk is new to Madden NFL 25 and will be one of the most used run formations this season. This formation is all about pounding the rock and letting your opponent know it in advance. The formation is loaded to the right side of the field with two extra offensive tackles, which makes it extremely difficult for defenses to defend. If you are serious about running the ball then you want to use this formation. Mix in play action, which will be an effective tactic because defenses will anticipate run when they see the I-Form Hulk.

4 PISTOL FULL HOUSE TE

Offense

THIS FORMATION CAN BE FOUND IN THE 49ERS OFFENSIVE PLAYBOOK.

The Full House TE is a great formation for running an option-style offense. The compressed nature of the formation allows our offense to pick up key blocks in the run game. Defenders tend to not like tight spaces, as it can cause confusion and traffic when looking to chase after ball carriers. This is a great formation to use with custom playbooks because it’s not entirely reliant on the QB’s speed to be effective. We recommend trying some option plays out of this formation. This will make defenses guard the middle, leaving the edges wide open for our skill players.

3 GUN SPLIT PANTHER

Offense

THIS FORMATION CAN BE FOUND IN CAROLINA’S OFFENSIVE PLAYBOOK.

Pass protection is important in Madden NFL 25. That is why we love this formation so much. We can pick up defensive blitzes from any point on the field. This formation also has one of the best QB runs in the entire game, the QB Wrap. Look to utilize the QB Wrap with mobile QBs to take full advantage of this formation.

2 GUN BUNCH HB STR

Offense

THIS FORMATION CAN BE FOUND IN THE 49ERS PLAYBOOK.

The Shotgun Bunch HB Str is a unique formation because it has four offensive players split to the right of the QB. This makes defenses extremely vulnerable to various offensive tactics. If we want to attack man-to-man the defense has to show their hand by over-aligning their defense to defend properly against the formation. If we want to attack zone the defense typically won’t have enough zone defenders to cover all four offensive options as the play develops. That is why this is our second favorite formation in the game.

1 GUN WING TRIPS OFFSET

Offense

THIS FORMATION CAN BE FOUND IN THE EAGLES PLAYBOOK.

If you are looking to run the ball all over your opponent from the shotgun formation, then you’d better look to the Eagles playbook in Madden NFL 25. The Gun Wing Trips Offset is without a doubt the best formation in this year’s game. By lining up our players offset, we have a huge advantage in the run game for a few reasons. First, the lead blockers pick up most blitzes and push to the linebacker level to create holes. Second, the shotgun run gives us more time as a user player to read running lanes. Expect to see a lot of this formation online this season!
