Trying into shooting in NBA 2K21 is a broader correlation between your player's hot zones and the cold zones. In the past few years, these zones changed according to your playing mode, but this year they are all related, so if you get cold in MyCareer, it will affect your Neighborhood performance.
So paying attention to and improving the hot zones of the players on the court, which requires extra energy. What you need to do is not only find your hot zones in NBA 2K21, but you also need to improve them as soon as possible.
How to find your hot zones?
The fastest way to check hot zones in NBA 2K21 is to check players' stats.
In MyCareer, go to menu screen-statistics-my minutes or roster. From there, select your player and press the R3 button. This will provide your players with detailed statistics in all their games played up to that point, including all hot and cold zones. This view is very important. It not only shows your hot and cold zones, but also shows your shooting percentages in those areas.
How to reset your hot zones?
In NBA 2K21, the game will determine your hot zone and cold zone based on your past 25 games. Before that, you will get the ranking of these zones, but if you want to improve and reset these zones to neutral, you will have to play at least 25 games.
The fastest way to get hot zones
1. Set match difficulty to "Pro"
2. Set quarter length to 5-6 minutes. This is to maximize the number of games you play as you ultimately what to quickly breeze through the 25-day barrier to change through zones
3. In "controller settings", go to"Shot Timing" and change this to "real player percentage".
Changing to "real player percentage" effectively reduces the ceiling and window for timing your shot, which means that the higher the player attribute, the more likely you are to shoot. You should pay attention to mastering the default shooting time meter, because you need to use it in Neighbourhood.
There are a few things to consider, however: if you have a low-ranked attribute in a particular area, forcing shots won't magically lead to gaining a hot zone. You're going to need to grind to get those attributes up regardless. Here are some key things to remember:
1. Focus attribute points on shooting areas you want to improve in
2. Aim to get mid-range and 3-point shots into the 90 attribute range
3. Utilize teammate screens and Shooting badges to maximize off-the-dribble and open shot
