2K Games

NBA 2K24 offers an abundance of settings to create your own custom jumpshot animations.
NBA 2K24 is available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, Nintendo Switch, and PC.

NBA 2K24 allows players to perform a variety of moves such as dunking, contact dribbling, pivoting, and so on. However, the game’s most vital move would be the jumpshots which allow you to leap straight into the air and precisely aim the ball into the basket. If you are a beginner and you are looking for the best jumpshots that NBA 2K24 has to offer, you have stumbled across the right article. Let’s take a look.

NBA 2K24: How do Jumpshots work?

Jumpshots are primary moves that play a crucial role in helping you score field goals. In NBA 2K24 fine-tuning these jumpshots can be pretty overwhelming as there are abundant options to choose from. Scoring a jump shot requires you to focus on shot attributes such as:

  • Release Height

  • Release Speed

  • Timing Stability

  • Defensive Immunity


Apart from the shot attributes, customizing a jumpshot requires you to equip them into three different slots: Upper Release 1, Upper Release 2, and Lower/Base. Although you can be lenient with the upper release slots, the base slots demand that you meet certain requirements. Furthermore, you can also balance these requirements with animation blending. Although these seem daunting, they can be surprisingly intuitive once you head into the MyPLAYER customization menu.

One of the ways to ensure that your jumpshots are effective is by playing around with the in-game settings. Here are the best settings to have in NBA 2K24:

  • Vibration: On

  • Shot Timing: Shots and Layups

  • Free Throw Timing: User Timing

  • Jump Shots Meter: Off (However, if you’re to the game, turn it on)

  • Shot Timing Visual Cue: Set Point

  • Layup Meter: On

  • Free Throw Meter: On

  • Shot Maker Input Type: All
