NBA 2K24 has been out for a few months now, and the developers have released a number of patches to address various issues. Patch 2.1 was released on October 11, 2023, and it made a number of changes to the game, including how shooting works.
In this article, we'll discuss how to maintain consistent shot and jump shots for all builds in NBA 2K24 in and after version 2.1.
Find a jump shot with a nice Q
The first thing you need to do is find a jump shot with a nice Q. Q stands for release point, and it is the point in the jump shot animation when you need to release the button to shoot the ball.
A nice Q is one that is consistent and easy to hit. It should be at a point in the animation where you have good control of the ball and your player is balanced.
There are many different jump shots in NBA 2K24, so you may need to experiment to find one that works for you. You can try out different jump shots in the MyPLAYER Builder or in the Practice Mode.
Learn your Q
Once you have found a jump shot with a nice Q, you need to learn when to release the button. The best way to do this is to practice in the Practice Mode.
Start by shooting the ball from different spots on the court. Focus on hitting your Q every time. Once you are comfortable with your Q, you can start to add different moves to your shot, such as dribbles and step-backs.
Use the right release type
There are two different release types in NBA 2K24: timed and set point.
The timed release is the default release type. It requires you to release the button at the right time in the jump shot animation to shoot the ball.
Set point release is a new release type that was introduced in NBA 2K24. It allows you to set a specific point in the jump shot animation when you want to release the button. This can make it easier to shoot consistently, especially if you have a hard time with timed release.
To use set point release, you need to go to the Controls menu and change the Release Type to Set Point. Once you have done this, you can set your release point by pressing the button when you want to release the ball.
Be aware of the momentum
Momentum plays a big role in shooting in NBA 2K24. If you are missing shots, it can be difficult to start making them again.
One way to improve your chances of making shots is to take easy shots early in the game. This will help you to build up your momentum.
Another way to improve your chances of making shots is to avoid taking contested shots. Contested shots are much more difficult to make than open shots.
If you are struggling to shoot the ball, it is a good idea to take a break. Come back to the game later with a fresh mind.
Sometimes, all you need is a little break to get your shot back.
Jump Shots for All Builds
Here are a few jump shots that can be used by all builds:
• JR Smith base, Kobe Bryant upper, and Rudy Gay release (quick release, 50/50 blend)
• Steph Curry base, Goran Dragic upper, and Rudy Gay release (half speed, 50/50 blend)
• Russell Westbrook base, Goran Dragic upper, and Carsen Edwards release (63/37 blend)
These jump shots are all well-balanced and have good release speeds. They are also relatively easy to time, even if you are new to the game.
Jump Shots for Specific Builds
Here are a few jump shots that are specifically designed for certain builds:
• Stretch bigs: Eric Paschall base and Kobe Bryant release (push release, 100% blend)
• Mid-range shooters: Kobe Bryant base and upper, and Rudy Gay release (push release, 50/50 blend)
• Small guards with low three-point ratings: Russell Westbrook base, Goran Dragic upper, and Carsen Edwards release (63/37 blend)
These jump shots are all designed to maximize your chances of making shots, given your build's strengths and weaknesses.
