Here are tips for throwing bullet passes in Retro Bowl:
- Choose a passing play. Make sure a receiver will be running downfield.
- Tap the quarterback to highlight him just as the ball is snapped. You can also let the CPU automatically run the passing play.
- As soon as the quarterback gets set after the snap, tap a receiver icon running a deeper route downfield.
- You’ll see the quarterback immediate wind up and sling a tight spiraling bullet pass towards that chosen receiver.
- The quicker you tap the receiver icon after the snap, the faster the bullet pass will take off.
- The smaller timing window to tap produces a blistering fast throw. The quarterback will instantly spot the receiver and laser a lead pass.
- If done correctly, these bullet passes can tear through defenses for big yardage or even one-play touchdowns.
However, a split second slow reaction can result in the pass being off target or giving defenders time to break up the play. So quick recognition and tapping after snaps is key to executing bullet passes in Retro Bowl effectively. Try it out in practice before drawing them up in high pressure game situations.
