Wondering why it's so hard to shoot in NBA 2K23?

NBA 2K23 came with a lot more features than just a roster date. The newest installment to the most popular basketball game in the world added crazy cosmetics, items, and even a hover bike.

Cosmetic items aside, 2K23 also hauled over a ton of new animations and reworked shooting and dribbling in a drastic way. Because of all the major gameplay changes made, it's no surprise fans are struggling to adapt to the new mechanics. Here are some of the reasons why shooting is so much more difficult this year.

Why is it So Hard to Shoot in NBA 2K23?

One of the biggest problems with shooting is initially there is no shot meter. In order to equip one, simply go to settings, click on features, then controller settings and finally select shot meter type.

Another frustration fans have is that they changed the green meter. Players won't know if their shot was perfectly released until they make the basket, a far departure from previous titles. It'll take time to adjust, but we recommend spending time playing MyCareer so you can develop familiarity with NBA 2K's new shooting system.
