Flopping? Break it Down!
If you’re just stepping onto the blacktop, you might be wondering, “Yo, what’s this ‘flopping’ business?” Picture this: You’re at a dope house party, and a dance-off just kicked off. Your homie busts out the worm – yeah, that move where you flail around on the floor like a fish out of water. Now, put that same move on the hardwood, only this time you’re acting like you’ve just taken a hardcore hit from the opposition. That, my friend, is flopping.
In the NBA, this kind of theatrics would land you a tech faster than you can say “ball don’t lie.” But this is NBA 2K24, where flopping has been part of the mix since NBA 2K13. It’s not just about getting the ref to blow the whistle; it’s also about the lolz, especially when playing with your friends or clowning around online when something wild happens on the court.
Cop Your Flop Moves
Before you can start flopping like you’re auditioning for a slapstick comedy, you gotta equip some flop animations.
Kick things off by heading over to MyPLAYER > Animations > Animations Store > In-Game Celebrations > Park Flops. This is where you’ll cop all those crazy flop animations that’ll have you looking like you’ve taken a hit from The Rock.
Once you’ve copped the animations, it’s time to equip ’em. Just stroll on over to MyPLAYER > Animations > In-Game Celebrations > Park Flop and get suited up with your new flop animations.
Time to Get Your Flop On
With your animations ready to roll, it’s time to learn how to actually flop in NBA 2K24. Keep this in mind: flopping is a defensive move. Try it on offense, and you’ll look like you don’t know your sneakers from your slippers. But on defense, a well-executed flop can really throw off your opponent’s rhythm and might even score you a foul.
If you’re repping the PlayStation 4 or PlayStation 5, you gotta double tap that Circle button to let your flop fly. For the Xbox One and Series X|S squad, give that B button a quick double tap.
