how do you hit a 50yard field goal?

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.

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.

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
