How to Shoot Better in NBA 2K22 (Get more Greens)

Shooting consistently in NBA 2K20 is no easy task, yet one of the most valuable skills to win a lot of games. Therefore, it’s important that you’re good at it, and we outline the ways in which you can shoot more greens in 2K.

Pick the Right Build: In 2K22, any build with a 60-plus 3-ball can shoot consistently. The higher the better, of course, but having a higher attribute is not necessary. Badges are more important.

Pick the Right Badges: Here’s our list of Best Shooting Badges. Pick the best ones for your build and they’ll help you become a sharpshooter in no time.

Pick the Right Jumpshot: Here’s the best jumpshots in 2K22 (hint: 98 is the best for current gen; Ray Allen for next-gen). The most important part of this is that you pick a jumpshot and stick with it for a period of time.

Practice your Jumpshot: Practicing your jumpshot is one of the most important parts of shooting. You could have everything else perfect, but if you do not know your timing, you will miss a ton of shots.

How to practice: On Current Gen, go to the MyCourt and practice your jumpshot. On Next-Gen, go to the Practice Facility, choose the Corner 3’s Drill, and press Square to practice. This will allow you to get a ton of shots up.

Only Shoot Open Shots: Shooting Contested Shots will only lessen the chance you have of making a shot, so learning the contest system and shooting open shots will help you shoot better overall.

Buy Jumpshot Boosts: Boosts are an expensive addition, but are largely worth it for this year’s game. They give you a considerable boost to your shooting and are worth the 1500 VC per ten games.

Decrease Gameplay Lag: This relates to online play, as offline play is not affected by 2K’s poor servers. Ways to decrease lag are using a LAN cable or having top-notch WIFI (which can be expensive).

Legend Rep Rewards

Legend is the highest level in the new Park Rep system in NBA 2K20. And although the grind to this level will be almost as tough as achieving 99 in past years, the rewards to reaching Legend status are quite sweet:

Free Copy of NBA 2K21

It’s unclear how many players who reach Legend will get this reward, but the first unknown amount of players will get next year’s version of the game for free.

Arrive in Style

This one is largely unknown, but it seems like you may get a custom entrance into the Park when’s you reach Legend status. Again, the features for this are unknown.

Be Featured on an Episode of 2KTV

Just like the Wall for 99 overalls in the past few 2K games, this feature seems like a way for 2K to claim they commemorate a player’s grind without actual individual commemoration.

The Ability to Kick Players off the ‘Got Next’ Spot Unlocked

This VIP feature doesn’t get used a ton, but is still a cool reward for reaching Legend status.

Extra Badge Points

Legend status players get 10 extra badge points for each badge category, allowing them to get up to two more Hall of Fame badges in their main categories or three gold badges in their non-main categories.

Legend Player Panels Available

The Player Panels are an aesthetic feature that can be a cool feature with the unique Legend panel to let othe players know about your lengthy grind.

Iron Wall Badge

The Iron Wall Badge is new for NBA 2K20 and is a Rep Reward for achieving Pro 2 Status. This badge allows your player to set harder screens than even Hall of Fame Brick Wall allows.

Iron Wall is one of the most effective badges in the Park once unlocked, as it allows bigger players to set screens that knock smaller defenders down and completely shut down bigger players. Take a look:

Iron Wall still triggers randomly, so we recommend having a higher Brick Wall badge level as well. The two badges go hand-in-hand, but Iron Wall only amplifies the effect of Brick Wall, not replace it.

3v3 Pro-Am

3v3 Pro-Am in the Park is new for NBA 2K20 and introduces matchmaking into a Park-like atmosphere. Here’s what you need to know about this game mode.

  • All games go through the Pro-Am arena. Your teammates must be on the same Pro-Am team and the game will launch from the Pro-Am arena.
  • The gameplay is the same as 3v3 Park, with the downsized court, arcade-style feel, and special animations of Park gameplay.
  • There is a matchmaking system that supposedly matches your team against similar competition. However, this system largely fails its goals.
  • You get Park Rep for each game, though the earned Rep is the same as a similar performance would earn in the Park.

And while the mode is actually pretty cool, it’s largely dead at this point. Rep grinders who once earned more Rep in this mode have moved to Park, and most competitive players have gone back to the Ante-Up.

Though the pool of players is a lot smaller, there is certainly still enough squads for your team to get a good amount of games quickly and have fun in a competitive environment.
