On Friday, 2K Sports introduced the current-gen model of NBA 2K21, and gamers had been suffering to conform to the sport’s new shot meter, which is way more difficult and punishing than it’s been in earlier years. In this 12 months’s recreation, you no longer best need to have proper timing to your unlock, however you even have to attempt your shot, and because of this new mechanic, gamers had been throwing up numerous air balls, even supposing they’re the usage of a talented shooter.
Shortly after the sport introduced, its current-gen quilt superstar, Portland Trail Blazers level guard Damian Lillard, make clear the sport’s greatest downside, the aforementioned shot meter, as he discussed on Twitter that even he’s suffering the sport’s latest mechanic.
Am I the one one suffering with this shot meter ? 🤦🏾♂️ and I ain’t made a unfastened throw but

In reaction, NBA 2K21’s gameplay director, Mike Wang, presented a couple of pointers for gamers who’re suffering with the sport’s shot meter.
“For jumpers, grasp RS down to begin a shot. While nonetheless conserving, modify the purpose by way of shifting RS fairly left or proper until the tick is targeted within the meter. You too can faucet LT/L2 or RT/R2 to fasten the purpose and time the shot for an extra spice up.”
Also, 2K has mentioned that they’ll tweak the shot meter, as they’re attempting their easiest to assuage its participant base, maximum of which aren’t proud of the sport’s new capturing mechanics. These tweaks can be obvious whilst taking part in at the rookie, professional, and all-star problem settings, however for famous person, corridor of repute, and the group, the whole lot will stay the similar.
It’s price noting that you’re allowed to show the shot aiming off whilst taking part in NBA 2K21’s single-player modes (MyGM, MyLeague, and MyTeam), so should you simply need to center of attention on timing your unlock, you’ll be allowed to take action if modify your gameplay settings.
As of at this time, it’s unclear if the brand new shot meter will seem within the next-gen model of NBA 2K21, nevertheless it’s almost certainly lovely secure to think that it is going to.
2K hasn’t proven a lot from the next-gen model in their annual NBA recreation, and so they almost certainly gained’t till later this 12 months, most probably someday in November. As of this writing, they haven’t introduced a unlock date for the PlayStation five and Xbox Series X variations, but when I needed to bet, it’ll almost certainly be launched someday round Christmas.
The current-gen model of NBA 2K21 is to be had for the PlayStation four and Xbox One.
