Becoming a top-tier slasher is a unique skill in NBA 2K22 when the majority of player simply run at the rim and hold the square button. In this article we will teach you to become a top-tier slasher who can finish almost everything at the rim.
Max out your slashing stats: Driving layup and driving dunk are a must, with standing dunk being important for big men. Try to match your attributes with the Contact Dunk requirements, but you don’t necessarily need high ratings to be a good finisher.
Equip the right finishing badges: Here are the best finishing badges in NBA 2K22. Fearless Finisher, Posterizer, and Slithery Finisher are musts, and Giant Slayer/Mouse in the House are musts for their respective players.
Learn the timing for your dunks: The new dunk meter makes it a bit tough to dunk, but learning the timing on them from practice in the Gatorade gym allows you to get crazy contact dunks and other great animations.
Utilize Slithery Finisher: This necessary finishing badge can be activated on contested layups by simply aiming your stick diagonal-up towards the baseline and swinging it to the center area. This mechanism works 3/4 of the time and helps you get some crazy animations and finishes.
Be patient: Simple rim-running gets you contact dunks every once-in-a-while, but patient slashing is better. This method involves pump fakes, taking layups instead of forcing dunks, and passing when you don’t have a good shot.
If you follow these tips when playing any game mode, your percentage at the rim will greatly increase. I was able to use this tips to finish ridiculous layups and dunks at the hoop with only 1 finishing badge, so you can imagine how it will be when your player has many more.
