How can you hit pictures in NBA2K21?
Stick when catch and take or post fade. Button from anywhere in close. Works for me but it took a little practice. Isn't it harder to select your layup in case you use button? I have always fought with these controls and utilized stick for layups. I'd really like to be shooting at 40% but I'm blessed if I could hit 20%. I just play offline. I understand we've scrub players right now, and I am a below average player but badly even layups that are in the center of the meter are not going in. I don't even dare to try a jump shot. The AI seems to be ridiculous levels as well. I know they wish to reward ability in 2k21 but this kind of stuff will really put off casual players and people new the 2K franchise and also brand new to basketball matches.
I have been enjoying since 2K13 but I have never been that great of a player. My starter players have never played this bad at 2k16,17,18,19 and 20. The only other 2K I played before 2K20 was 2K13 and that has been on PC. I improved a hell of a lot in 2K20 to the point where I could go as high as Superstar without using STS. However, this is a completely different level using a very different mechanic. I did ok in the demo and in the quickgames using the new shooting meter but can't hit the side of a barn here.
Only played with the demo, however, the stick was much more reliable than button to get me. I have always been a button man too. I've got a 75 3 pointer, I believe I greened one shot like 5 nba games. . . Genuinely shooting 2/16 in an offline triple threat game on only layups and 1 open jumpshot which airballed on slightly early. Spent $100 with this bullshit lmao. Person that the shooting is additional nice right now but I would advise shot timing like appearance for the que on the animation.
