Ive tried Venitari and Janakowski with maxed out stats and maxed out sliders but it never goes in. Are there any other ways to do this?

All I did was kick a 51 yard Field Goal with Mason Crosby(Green Bay Packers). And it went in fine. Don't supersim either. You need to play through the whole game to get the achievement.

No I just left the arrow where it was. Try to get in the middle of the field. Don't move the arrow.

What's soo weird is knowing Mason is now in a video game. My girlfriend went to high school with that guy. He was one of the coolest, most down to earth people I ever met. He was kicking 45 yarders in high school. Craziness.

This is in a small town called Georgetown, TX. I live in Austin, TX about 20 miles south of there.

I can't seem to get this one either. I've tried it in a dome with player and game sliders maxed and it always falls a foot short, but I'll give it a go with Mason...anybody know exatly what yard line you rline of scrimmage has to be to have it 50 exactly? 34 yard line I think but could be wrong.

It would need to be on at least the 33 yd line for it to be a 50 yard Field Goal.

Well dunno about sliders, but I got lucky and caught a windy Cleveland night game and got mine with the Browns. The wind was 11 MPH directly towards the direction I was going, so I figured what the hell and kicked it. It went in... Barely, but it went.

Where is this slider that some people mention? I cannot find it anywhere. I have tried with Colts and this Mason guy on GB. But am always short. And I cannot find this slider anywhere.
Someone please explain how to get to it. i.e. Before starting a franchise or during the game or prior to preseason press start on screen X. I just cannot find any of these sliders.
When and where. Thanks

Got it. Used Manon, I changed it to hardcore and all-madden difficulty and it made it easily. Maybe that helps or I was just lucky?

Go to My Madden and edit any kicker to 99 Kick Power and 99 Kick Accuracy. Then run the ball to the 33 yard line, or the 34, then its easy.

I just got the achievement as well, but i would like to add somethings to the discussion that may help others.. I did it with Green Bay's Mason, i put the sliders on 100, power and accuracy. I also put on unlimitted replays to reduce the amount of time between kicks and allowing to kick more per quarter/match. I have also realized that you should put the directional arrow all the way down. If the arrow is to high the ball will go to high and not far enough.

This is by far the "hardest" achievement of the game IMO. This took me the most tries in trying to get. What I did was use the Packers (mostly because I've been a fan of them since I was 6) and maxed Mason's stats out to 100. I ran the ball to the Vikings' 33 yard line and kicked it. It took me 4 tries in that game to finally hit it right. Keep the field goal arrow as far down as possible and maybe a slight touch upwards but nothing more than that and of course max out the kick arrow. Other than that, it seems to be luck more than anything. If you are using two controllers you can easily punt it back to yourself and run the ball to position and try again.

I did it with Janokowski of the Raiders because he has the best kicking power.

08-15-2008, 12:09 AM
Just got it... I put it on Hardcore, Custom difficulty (put all the sliders to full). I used the Colts' kicker. Put the two FG stats to full, put the kicking arrow almost all the way down. Easily got it.

I hit a 51 yarder with Mason, finished playing the game, then I got nothing. I hit it while my o-line was on the 34 yard line too1 oh well, I'll try again I guess!

I booted a 61 yarder w/ the "my madden" edit (and a little wind=)

"Go to My Madden and edit any kicker to 99 Kick Power and 99 Kick Accuracy. Then run the ball to the 33 yard line, or the 34, then its easy."

Has anyone had any problems with this ach. not unlocking? This is my second to last achievement. I kicked one from 50, 51 and 52 yards and none have unlocked the ach. I am not simming. I have all settings at their defaults. Any help would be much appreciated.

Only thing I can think of is check and see what your kickers longest FG is under stats. I thought that I had booted a few 50 yarders, but it turned out that they were only 49 yard FGs.

Finally got this achievement a few hours ago, booted a 50 yarder with Nick Folk. w00t.

i got all of them yesterday... i found the easiest way with anyone is to put the arrow all the way down using the left stick and then hit at max power. That or you can adjust you sliders to make your kick stronger

You have to be in a franchise game, start up franchise mode, kick it in that game. Make sure you change the settings to advanced or custom so you can kick a field goal at anytime.
Start:
settings>Game Skill>go down to gamestyle and choose Hardcore

Also go into settings during the game and change kicker settings:
Start:
settings>Gameplay>Special Teams Settings> Raise FG power and FG accuracy to 100.

I also created a kicker before I started my Franchise and added him to my team. He just appeared there when I choose my team. I of course maxxed out his kick power and accuracy.

WOW. First get to the 35-40 yard line and then go to your "special teams" in your playbook and look around and then you got it.

A field goal is when you kick the ball through the yellow posts or "goal" much like a point-after kick. Tips for the achievement are all over this board so just read for more help.

Ya,

This acheev was a pain in the balls for me. I put it at max power every time for 12 times ( I counted) and still nothing. I finally got it with a 23 yard field goal :confused:

Well basically the easiest way, is to aim the aim arrow lower than what it was and it goes farther. I got 52 yards that way with the jets when i was going for the 300 rush yard achievement.

I got this achievement by kicking it from the 33 but when my brother tried , kicked a 50yd field goal multiple times and it would not unlock?

Dont know if anyone else is having issues with it not unlocking but after a few attempts we restarted the game, had one 1 account logged in and kicked it from the 34yd line and the achievement unlocked after the game ^^

charm3d kill3r posted this in his or her post, but simply aim the arrow all the way down. You can easily hit 60 yard field goals by doing this. TRUST ME I PLAY MADDEN TOO MUCH THIS WORKS.

08-05-2009, 05:24 PM
If you edit the kicker and change the sliders, you can hit a field goal from anywhere on the field. I got the achievement with an 86 yard field goal, with 21 mph wind going AGAINST me. Just aim a bit down.

Has to be franchise mode. Try take the kick from around the 40 yard line, the size of the end zone is counted even though its not marked on the pitch.

yes this achievement stubed me as well but what i did when u get a feild goal from the 34 yard line with the little arrow obvousily line up with the posts then drop it to the bottem so the lowest it will kick and go to like jumps up the smallest you get, dont be a fool like me and think the higher you kick it the further it goes i forgot dam mechanics of projectiles lol and remembered 45 is a better angle to kick at haha lol the first application something in mechanics has helped me in life lol haha

What would be the beat advice then for this, to get the 50 yards.

08-11-2010, 07:43 AM
after the 18 try with Crosby and trying to get the wind on my side i got it. its funny how everytime i missed i tried, but the one time i was frustrated and looked away i got it not to mention the previous try only went 10 yards. funny how achievements work after a certain try/event

THIS THIS THIS THIS. Don't waste two hours like me pulling your hair out as the fucking ball goes two feet short every time. AIM THE ARROW DOWN as far as it will go, got it my FIRST GOD DAMN TRY after I did this. What a waste of a fucking night, I'm so pissed I didn't realize this sooner

07-30-2011, 12:12 PM
I'm trying to get this now. I'm using the Jets kicker with maxed out stats, putting the arrow down low, 100 kick power and it's still falling a few yards short.

Edit: This was me being an idiot. In special teams settings I had kickoff power to 100, not fg power. Got it first try with that changed.

Did this on easy with Bironas. Got to opp 30 yard line then just QB kneeled until I was at the 34. Brought out B and nailed it from a straight shot.

Grummy
06-24-2013, 01:32 AM
OK, I don't get this at all, how do I use the special teams, QB kneel etc? I get a player to between the 30 and 40 in the center and let him get tackled, then the play options come up and I never have the option for field goal or special teams or anything, how do I get these available in the first place? I've tried giving an offensive audible for field goal but nothing happens when I use it. I have no idea what to do.
