What is Shot-Aiming in NBA 2K21?
In NBA 2K21, you can use a feature for jump shots and layups in-game called “shot-aiming.” The feature was newly added for NBA 2K21.
Here’s everything you need to know about Shot-Aiming in NBA 2K21.
How to use Shot Aiming
Shot-Aiming allows users to take control of the aim of their jump-shots and lay-ups using the pro-stick. When you pull down on the pro-stick, you push it back up in your desired direction while timing the shot window to get a “perfectly green” shot release.
Perks and Cons to Shot Aiming vs Shot Button
Using the pro stick and shot aiming feature has its pros. For one, you get more time to aim your shot than while using the shot button. Additionally, you typically have a higher chance of getting a green release when you aim your shot with the pro stick than the shot button.
On the other hand, the shot-stick is a lot harder to learn, which is why the shot button is the most used. Additionally, shot aiming is also more difficult off the dribble.
