NBA 2K21 3-Level-Scorer is a popular build archetype in the MyPlayer game mode, and as its title suggests, this one is about buckets.

The 3-Level-Scorer is a score-first build archetype that can be attained at all five positions in NBA 2K21. In the previous season of the NBA 2K League, this archetype was actually used to set the season-high mark for points in a game when Nidal "Mama Im Dat Man" Nasser used it to drop 77.

With some of the ratings requirements for animations changing from NBA 2K20 to 2K21, let's take a look at what makes up the new 3-Level-Scorer.

NBA 2K21 3 Level Scorer: About the Build Archetype

We'll look at the Small Forward (3) position for the 3-Level-Scorer build since its the median of the five spots on the court. It's also probably the position which can utilize the 3-level-scoring to the best ability, as NBA history would suggest.

Different than last year's title, this 3-Level-Scorer build utilizes the defense and shooting pie chart (red and green). The best physical profile to use with this archetype will be the balanced physicals, due to the liklehood of having to guard bigger positions with this build.

For the stats breakdown, max out the top three stats in both shooting and finishing, leave all the playmaking untouched, and max out the available defensive statistics. The optimal height and weight for this build is 6-foot-8, 225 pounds with a maxed out wingspan.

Follow the guide and you should have yourself an awesome new build to get buckets in 2K21.
