The Curry Slide is back in NBA 2K22, but is limited at the moment only to those who know how to do a certain method.
In recent years, there hasn't been a move as popular on the court as Stephen Curry's signature slide escape. In a game dominated on creating space for open threes, it's a dribble move that can be spammed and covers a ton of ground with ease.
Although, the Curry Slide technically shouldn't be able to be earned nor equipped in NBA 2K22 MyCareer at the moment, players have found a method that allows them to channel their inner chef. Here's how to get, and do, the Curry Slide dribble animation in NBA 2K22 MyCareer on Current Gen and Next Gen.
NBA 2K22 Curry Slide Animation: How to Get and Do
It's been rumored that the Curry Slide will be coming in a future MyCareer season, but for those wondering how to unlock the move immediately, here's what you can do.
The first thing to note is that since this is an exploit/workaround, the method is only available to those starting off with a new build.
The reason for this is, to get the Curry Slide animation, players need to create their desired build and take it into the build tester feature. Although players are able to choose their overall, Badges and Jump Shot from a limited list of preset animations, the game randomly gives players dribbling animations to use.
As such, players have found that if you go into the tester, sometimes it will allow you to do the Curry Slide. To know if you have the Curry Slide in the build tester, or perform the move in general, hold the RT or R2 button on your controller and flick the right stick diagonally away from your ball hand.
If you have the Curry Slide Animation from the first try, quit out of the tester and start your MyCareer. The animation will stay with your player as long as you don't change the "Normal" Size-Up Escape Package that's set in your MyPlayer's Playmaking Moves Animations slot. If you don't have the Curry Slide Animation in the build tester, simply quit and out and try again.
At the moment, it remains unclear if any build can get the move, as well as if 2K will patch the method, but feel free to go for it if you want.
