Becoming a top-tier slasher is a unique skill in NBA 2K23 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 2K23. Limitless Takeoff, Posterizer, and Slithery are some of the best, but the Tier system shakes this up a bit.
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. The Pro Touch badge also helps on this.
Utilize Slithery : This 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 a good amount 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.
