NBA 2K22 unveils some new gameplay innovations, including faster-paced gameplay, tighter and more responsive movement, more skill-based offense, changes to the player builder, and much more. Here are a few of them:


Defense & Defensive AICompletely rebuilt shot contest and blocking systems, a significant update to the fundamental defensive rotations, and much more.
DribblingPlayers will experience a unique feel and rhythm when sizing up, significantly faster overall pace, and much tighter control in navigating the court, and a ton of other new combos, cancels, and move chains.
Post PlayUpgrades highlight loads of new content, including new movement and a new arsenal of back-to-basket moves.
ShootingThere's a new shot meter that will dynamically expand when players take high-quality shots with good shooters but will shrink when heavily contested, shooting with a low-rated shooter, or fatigued. NBA 2K22 puts more emphasis on Shot IQ, meaning the teams that work for open looks and take smart shots are going to see much more success than the teams that force up bad shots.
FinishingAlong with a focus on creating more of a skill gap for finishing at the rim, players can also completely customize their dunk repertoire with an all-new Dunk Style Creator.
Builds, Badges & TakeoverAdjustments to create more balanced builds and an increase of the total badge count to 80 offer many ways for players to impact the game. Additionally, NBA 2K22 for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S consoles introduce Takeover Perks, which you can unlock to strengthen your existing Takeover abilities.
