How to Get Hot Zones in NBA 2K21

The shooting mechanics in NBA 2K21 have gotten even more intricate as developers hope to make the game even more realistic than it already is. The hot zones are a way to simulate to a certain extent a player's ability to be "hot" from a certain area on the court. Players have hot zones that they are shooting exceptionally well in. These hot zones are created after a 25 game stretch in which a player will shoot and hopefully make but will also miss.

There are several contributing factors to hot zones and one of which is attributed ratings. Having a higher rated mid-range shot will increase a player's chances of achieving a hot zone in the mid-range. Therefore the best way to obtain hot zones is to upgrade the right shooting attributes and make note of potential hot zones when entering games. Taking note of them will allow you to shoot more or less in certain spots which will directly influence hot or cold zones. Making shots is the most important thing to consider when getting hot zones so forcing shots in areas your player is statistically bad at shooting from will not create a hot zone.
