Tips and Tricks for Beginners in NBA 2K21

  • NBA 2K21 MT is in full-swing, and that means some epic battles.The Park is one of the best innovations in sports gaming, and has remained one of the most popular game modes in the NBA 2K series. But despite this, The Park could use some updates that could really improve player experiences.

    Understand the new shot meterNBA 2K21 has removed the green meter from last year in the hopes that players work harder to score buckets. Instead of filling a bar until it is full, this year you need to let go of the Pro Stick or shot button in between a yellow marker that appears at different positions within the new bar. This yellow marker changes positions depending on where you are on the court, meaning you’re never shooting the same shot twice. It takes time to adjust, but this new way of shooting pushes you to master different areas of the court in ways you may not have thought of before.

    Turn off the shot meterNot keen on the above? Heading into the options and turning off the new shot meter enables you to focus more on the jump of your player. This provides a more natural approach to shooting, and takes away the distraction of focusing on the new meter – which can at times be too small to see properly. If you decide to turn the meter off, make sure you let go of the Pro Stick (or shot button) just before you reach the peak of your jump for the best timing.

    Avoid contested shotsWhatever game mode you’re playing in, shooting whilst being heavily guarded almost always results in a missed shot. Finding open space or breaking away from your defender if you have the ball enables you to hit an uncontested shot. In MyCareer, find free space around the perimeter or call for other players to provide a screen (L1/LB) so you can move into open space. This allows you to shoot without having someone potentially blocking your shot or forcing an air ball.

    Know the Hot Zones

    If you don’t already know, each player has their own ‘hot zones’, which are based on how the player performs in real life. If you want to be successful with a particular player, you must earn where their individual hot spots are, particularly those from three-point range.

    Earn Your BadgesAnother key ingredient for success is knowing your player’s Badges, and picking the correct ones when levelling up your MyPlayer. Heading to the courts in The Neighborhood is daunting at first, especially as building your stats is blocked by the VC (Virtual Currency) wall. By playing in MyCareer and in The Neighborhood, you acquire points in different areas such as Shooting and Playmaking.

    Once you fill one of these gauges, you are free to pick a new badge to give your player a skill boost. Badges like Pro Touch give forgiveness if your shot timing is off, and the Giant Slayer Badge makes you unstoppable against taller defenders. Decide what kind of player you want, and grab the Badges you need to make you the best you can be.

    Defense on the ball

    The first steps should take before making a bold move.

    Intense-D: Enter a low defense position and hold down L2 on PS4 or LT on Xbox One to form a daunting semicircle around the opposing player. Yes, give them that strong D.

    Crowd dribbling: Don’t let other players set the screen between you and your man (or woman in WNBA mode). Press and hold L2 on the PS4 or LT on the Xbox One, and then move the left finger stick to the dribbling machine to bring it closer and maintain your status.

    Shuffle the cards quickly: Don’t let them rest soon! Press and hold L2 and R2 on PS4 or LT and RT on Xbox One.

    Please raise your hand: Move up and hold the right thumbstick to prevent them from shooting you.

    Reach out your hands: If you think they will pass to either side of you, move right or left and hold your right fingertip to protect their passing route.

    Double Team: This is not just a classic Dennis Rodman movie! Press and hold L1 on PS4 or LB on Xbox One for help.

    Stand your groundIf you’re faced with someone who can make great plays towards the hoop, standing your ground and forcing a charge can make the difference in the clutch. By holding Circle/B, you plant your feet and stand your ground, meaning if the opposition is running hard for a layup or dunk and they knock you over, they likely make an offensive foul and possession is given back to you. It’s not a sure fire way to earn a foul, but it helps against stronger offensive players.

    That’s all for the NBA 2K21 beginner’s guide. This should get you started in the game and the rest is on how well you adapt to the gameplay.
