NBA 2K24: Best Season 3 jumpshots


Best Season 3 jumpshots

Basketball is a game where every aspect comes into play, but in NBA 2K24, having good shooting skills is crucial. There are various ways to practice, but having the best Season 3 jumpshots in NBA 2K24 can lead to success.

This guide will help you understand how to create a custom jump shot in the game and provide you with some of the best options across different builds. However, you will still need to find what works best for your play style and timing. The jumpshot options presented here will give you a clear starting point.

Now, let’s have a look at our best Season 3 jumpshots.

What are the best Season 3 jumpshots in NBA 2K24?

To choose the best Season 3 jumpshots in NBA 2K24, you need to understand how the creation process works. Although setting up the best animations is easy, creating a custom jump shot animation can be more complicated.

To begin creating an animation, you need to select a Lower/Base animation. However, this can be a challenge as some of the best options may not be available.

Keep in mind that all animation variations are linked to height and have certain restrictions based on height ranges. Only the Lower/Base animation has an attribute requirement.

It's important to note that even if your height is perfect, you may not be able to access certain Lower/Base animation options until you've upgraded your Mid-Range Shot or Three-Point Shot to meet the animation requirements.

Therefore, it's recommended that you focus on upgrading these attributes early on, as having the best Season 3 jumpshots in NBA 2K24 will increase your chances of earning the VC needed to progress to 99 OVR in MyCAREER.

If you come across different bases and find one that you like to use temporarily until you can upgrade to access your desired Lower/Base animation, keep in mind that the template builds automatically and grants the player's animations.

This means that with the right template build, you can immediately gain access to solid options like Jalen Brunson. However, it's important not to choose a build that doesn't fit your style just for that temporary advantage.

If you're struggling to succeed in NBA 2K24 despite having a good jumpshot, it might be time to consider using different badges. Our guide to the best badges can help you improve your game and make sure you're hitting every shot.
