The quick stop move, aka the “Peekaboo” was one of the most effective moves to three-point hunt and get off quick shots.
And while a bit different mechanically in 2K21, the quick stop is still an effective move. There’s two way to do it in 2K21:
Method 1: L2
The first way to quick stop is to press the L2 button before shooting. This will stop your movement and allow you to shoot shortly after.
Method 2: Let go of all Controls
A second method is to simply let go of all controls on your controller, which will stop your player and allow you to shoot.
This move feels a bit unnatural and can feel a bit inconsistent, so we like pressing L2 to quick stop. Either way, you’ll be able to do this dominant move in any game mode.
