If you're new to the series for the first time this year, you'll undoubtedly be looking for some Tips and Tricks. Here, we have put together some NBA 2K22 tips that will help you win the games fast and could help even veterans to improve their gaming experience.
Build a player that fits your style
Build a suitable player for your style of play and not one that everyone is recommending you or that you read is the best build somewhere. Every player has a unique style of play, and you should choose your best version of MyPlayer.
Grind your player first
Grinding MyPlayer involves finishing the challenges, playing more games, not skipping practice, going to the Gatorade Gym facility. If you choose to skip these processes, you'll lose many of the earlier matches you play based on a simple lack of experience.
Choose the college route, then join the G-League in MyCareer
One of the most significant decisions in the game is choosing between college and the G-League. However, you don't have to pick just one. Choose the college route first and then go to the G-League for the ultimate experience for both.
Spin the wheel daily
You have to spin the wheel in your safe space daily, make these habits as you never know when you'll hit the jackpot, and get your hands on some crazy reward.
Increase in-game minutes for more MyCareer playing time
You start as such a low-rated player in MyCareer, so you will only get limited minutes to get a "B" or higher Teammate Rating. Head into your Settings and look for the Quarter Length option. Set this to 10 or 12 minutes, and you'll have more court time. This helps you get a big VC boost to upgrade your player even quicker.
Memorize the new offensive animations
On NBA 2K22 offense, you've got new signature moves from the league's elite to break ankles with new dribble combos. This means that muscle memory waggling the right stick around needs updating immediately.
Master defensive controls anew
This year you're mastering defensive controls because the defensive animation vault has been updated, and shot contest and block controls are reworked.
Use the right stick on defense
The best way to lock down opponents in NBA 2K22 is to ensure you adopt a low defensive stance with the L2 trigger and then hold directly up on the right stick. This will help you hold up any dribblers, reducing the likelihood of you getting beaten by them.
Change your Shot Meter color
It can be difficult to green shots. The best solution is to change your Shot Meter Color to Red or Blue. This is because you'll be able to visualize the timing much easier, as the colors clash with the default settings.
Slow things down
In NBA 2K22, if you hold the sprint button down or use many dribble moves, your stamina will fall off a cliff. Your shot meter will decrease as you lose stamina, and your release slows. This makes it harder to hit shots. So, our advice is to slow down. With stamina, shooting is a bit easier this year.
Stick with Offline in MyTeam for now
Going in with a starter team and trying to compete in Triple Threat Online or Unlimited is tough. For newer players, playing offline modes like Triple Threat Offline and Domination will do two beneficial things. First, you're getting in practice. Second, you're building up your team with great players through rewards like 2K22 MT, VC, Tokens, etc.
Pick Trae Young as your MyTeam starter
Trae Young starts as a relatively unassuming PG but quickly evolves (upgrades) into a deadly shooter with remarkable speed for the early game.
Follow the meta
Even if you are an NBA veteran or a new player, the NBA meta changes with every release, and you'll be at a disadvantage if you don't adapt to it.
Stick to your matchup
While defending, the most important thing is that you stick to the player in front of you and never leave your matchup that defending will become very easy for you.
Don't change Jump Shots
Pick one jump shot and stick to it because changing to a new jump shot makes you inconsistent.
Practice the dribble
In NBA 2K22, dribbling requires a lot of practice, and you have to pick your favorite dribbler and hit 2KU to practice your chain shots and the overall flow of your dribble.
Grind and acquire the Gym Rat badge
It is one of the most coveted badges in the game. It serves as a permanent boost to your player's Speed, Acceleration, Stamina, Vertical, and Strength, while also adding an extra portion to your Stamina Meter.
