Yo, squad! You tryna elevate that NBA 2K24 gameplay? First off, ya gotta get tight with those settings. But if that menu’s got you all twisted up like a pretzel, don’t sweat it, fam. I’m here to decode the madness for you. One thing at a time, and you’ll be dropping dimes in no time.
What’s Up with the Shot Meter?
The shot meter is your game’s wingman. When you’re gearing up to sink that shot, it’s right there, letting you know if you’re on fire or cold with your timing. Get it just right, and you’ll be splashing all day.
Accessing the Settings
Before we ball out, we gotta get to the settings, fam:
- Head over to MyCAREER Menu.
- Select Controller Settings. This is where the magic happens.
Shot Meter Settings: The Rundown
Here are the options you’re gonna see:
- On: The meter will show up every time you take a shot.
- Off: No meter, all you. This is for the OGs who’ve been balling for years. Some say turning off the shot meter gives you a jump shot boost, so if you’re feeling lucky, give it a shot.
- Free Throws Only: Only gonna pop up when you’re at the line.
- Shot Button Only: If you’re using the shot button (Square or X) to shoot, this is for you.
- Pro Stick Only: For those who live and die by the Pro Stick.
