Mastering the Takeover System

Those static takeovers? History.. With 2K24, adaptability is key. Your in-game performance lets you select the perfect takeover to exploit matchups and situations. Whether it’s an offensive or defensive takeover, you’ll have the power to dictate and control pivotal moments.



Tips & Tricks – The 2K24 Center Playbook

  • Use the Pick & Roll effectively. This opens up scoring opportunities.


  • Focus on defensive positioning. Anticipate where the ball is heading.

  • Communication is key. Sync with your teammates for defensive rotations & offensive setups.
