One of the main modifications of NBA 2K21 is the change in its shootmeter, since it completely modified the way of throwing at medium and long distance, so many players have complained about how difficult it is to make effective long shots.
In the previous installments of the saga was a shooting bar that helped players to choose the strength with which the shots were made, a method that all users have been already into it.
In NBA 2K21 this indicator was completely modified for a much more intuitive and realistic mechanism that has been quite difficult to understand for the most inexperienced players.
And is that not even to buy NBA 2K21 MT Coins and adding the best players to your team completely solves this problem, since the change affects even the best scorers in the game such as Stephen Curry or Luka Doncic.
For this reason, Visual Concepts has decided to release an update that will make it easier to score from medium and long distance, although the patch will only affect those who play in the Rookie, Pro and All-Star difficulties, which means that it will not affect the way of shooting at the Hall of Fame difficulty level or in the Neighborhood section.
The NBA 2K21 Gameplay Director Has Spoken About The Issue
On his Twitter account, Mike Wang, gameplay director of the game, has clarified that he would like to receive the feedback from all fans, emphasizing that the priority of 2K and Visual Concepts is that all players have a satisfactory game experience.
“Let me know what you think, especially in Play Now, MyCAREER and MyTEAM. With all the changes in shooting this year everything has been redone and it is difficult to score from outside the zone, but we are there to improve it.”
In the same way, Wang has given a series of tips to all players so that they learn to use this new game mechanic.
For example, the developers’ first recommendation is to zoom more the camera in the matches, which decreases the range of vision for players, but will allow you to better observe the indicator when launching.
Likewise, Wang also gave a few tips to score, recommending players to keep the Left Trigger pressed until the moment the player finishes throwing the ball or, failing that, throw with the square or the X button to avoid the use of the Pro Stick.
Logically, Wang’s explanations and the speed of the developers to correct the problem shows that they feel responsible for the inconvenience caused.
Fortunately, it is now possible to change the behavior of a mechanic with a simple update, an advantage that was not had in previous generations, so the tests that were done before launching games to the stores were much more exhaustive. If you want to make the gameplay easier, you can pay a visit to MTStacks store where sells cheap NBA 2K21 MyTEAM coins.
NBA 2K21 is available now on PS4, Xbox One, PC and Nintendo Switch. The NBA 2K21 release date for next-gen consoles haven’t been confirmed yet.
