This guide will help you to know tips and tricks in NBA 2K20, which is aimed at helping you shoot better using these tips I guarantee! Let's take a look!
How to Make a Perfect Shot in NBA 2K20
If you want to win games, you’re going to have to score some shots in the basket, and nothing makes that easier like a perfect shot. Whereas most of the previous entries in the franchise required you to pay close attention to your character’s animation to know when to press and release the shoot button, things are a little easier in NBA 2K20.
To shoot the ball, all you have to do is hold and release the Square button (or the X button if you’re on Xbox One) at the right time. You can still pay attention to character animations if you want, but NBA 2K20 features a shot meter to the side of your character as a better visual indication of when to release the button.
Practice Practice Practice
We talkin’ about practice! Practice mode is a great mode to work on new shots, work out the kinks in your shot, finding the sweet spot of when to release the ball, etc. A good general rule is to take the shot at the peak of the jump. Also you may want to turn on shot feedback (game settings > presentation) to get a general idea of what release timing constitutes a good shot, excellent shot, poor shot, etc.
Know the Hot Zones
Another key element to learning how to shoot the perfect three knows the hot zones of your players. The best way to do this is to hit the court on 2KU and start experimenting with your favorite teams and players. Each player has their own ‘hot zones’ based on how they perform in real life. It is crucial to learn where each player’s hot spots are, particularly from three-point range, as they are more likely to be successful when shooting from these areas. Again, the higher the player’s rating from deep, the more hot spots they will have. Look at Golden State’s Steph Curry, arguably the best three-point shooter to ever grace an NBA court; he has Hot Zones all over the court.
Above all, the key to scoring remains shot selection. Whether you're playing as James Harden, Anthony Davis, Liz Cambage or Sue Bird, there's no sure shot in NBA 2K20. If you're heavily contested in the paint, you may want to post up (with L2 on PS4 or LT on Xbox One) and then spin or drive a stepback by holding R2/RT and moving the right trigger left or right before quickly releasing. If they won't give you an opportunity, make one.
