Mastering the NBA 2K24 layup timing is a lot easier with the best settings.

Both new and veteran players are still getting used to the new layup timing in NBA 2K24. Whether your MyPLAYER is a smaller guard or a Wembanyama-inspired big, cashing in open or contested layups are just as important as hitting a jump shot.

Here's a breakdown of the best NBA 2K24 layup timing settings.

NBA 2K24 Layup Timing: Best Settings

The best settings for NBA 2K24 layup timing are:

  • Shot Timing: Shots and Layups
  • Layup Meter: On
  • Shot Meter Input Type: All
  • Shot Meter Style: Personal Preference
  • Shot Meter Location: By the Head

Although some players preferred manually timing their layups in previous NBA 2K games, they must enable "Shots and Layups" for the Shot Timing setting in NBA 2K24 for the best results. The recent increase to the green window for open layups makes them virtually impossible to miss.

Plus, with the Layup Meter turned on, you have a much better chance at making contested layups; the visual cue helps time your release even as the green window shrinks.

Finally, keeping the Shot Meter Location "By the Head" makes finishing at the rim that much easier. Instead of averting your eyes next to or below your player, the Shot Meter will be close to the hoop, keeping your gaze right where it needs to be to perfect your layup timing.
