NBA 2K20: Tips & tricks beginner's guide

Learning the dark arts to a sports game that you need to be successful can be a long and stressful road, and NBA 2K20 is no different.

If you've played any of the previous titles before, there isn't much you need to know. However, if you are a complete novice, the range of game modes, challenges and controls can make it a tricky game initially.

Here's RealSport's beginner's guide to NBA 2K20, including everything you need to know when playing 2K for the first time.

Where do you start?

As with any sports title, the ideal way to start is to familiarize yourself with the controls. Our complete controls guide has everything you need to know, but the best place to practice these controls in 2K20 is hitting the courts in 2KU.

2KU has five different game modes, namely:

  • Training Game - This is the best mode to begin, it offers a range of tutorials, including shooting, dribbling and passing, etc. This gives players the opportunity to hit the gym and learn each of the basic skills with no competition.

  • Freestyle - This mode sticks players in the court to practise those moves that you have honed. You can also learn your Hot Zones in the freestyle court, which will teach you which players shoot best from where.

+ 12
  • Scrimmage - This is the first mode where you will come up against an opposition, playing in a traditional 5v5 format. Losing in scrimmage isn't the worst thing though, it is an opportunity to practise your defending and continue to learn those all important Hot Zones.

  • Practice Plays- This mode gives the user the opportunity to learn pre-set plays, both on offense and defense. You can also watch the CPU run the plays for you so you can see how it's done. This is one way to quickly level up your play.

Controls and Tips - A full rundown of all of the controls in the game can be found here.

Basic Basketball Rules

  • Shots made outside the arc are worth 3-points, inside the arc are worth 2, foul shots are worth 1 point;
  • Excessive physical contact with an opponent can lead to a foul;
  • Your team has 24 seconds to take a shot once taking over possession of the ball;
  • Once you pass the mid-court line, you cannot take the ball back across it;
  • You must keep the ball within the outside lines of the court;
  • Game consists of four quarters of play

Quick Play/Play WNBA

Once you have mastered your controls and feel comfortable in 2KU, the next port of call is to play an actual game.

There are two modes that we would advise for your first match. QuickPlay or Play WNBA.

These two game modes allow you to choose your team and your opposition, either from the NBA roster in the Quick Play mode, or the WNBA in Play WNBA.

There is a whole range of teams to choose from, from present day to the all-time greats. Being able to choose your opposition means the game can be as laid back or competitive as you want. It's the most laid-back game mode for new players.

Picking your settings before this first match is important too, as you need to ensure that the difficulty you pick matches your skill level. There are five game difficulty choices.

  • Rookie
  • Pro
  • All-Star
  • Superstar
  • Hall of Fame

We advise you start with Rookie and work your way up, however if you feel more confident you can start at Pro or All-Star.

BlackTop

Another good mode when starting out is BlackTop. There are five options when selecting your match set-up:

  • One vs One
  • Two vs Two
  • Three vs Three
  • Four vs Four
  • Five vs Five

You can select the players which you want on your team from the whole of the NBA database. Whether it be building your dream team or practising with players who you might want to add to your MyTEAM side, BlackTop is a great place to practice your skills.

Playing Online

There are a whole load of different online game modes for players who prefer to take their game against those around the world. The two main modes being Play Now Online and MyTEAM.

Play Now Online

Play Now Online is so simple. It's the exact same as playing against the computer except you will come up against someone online rather than the CPU.

You will be paired up with players on a similar skill level to yourself. Starting in the Freshman League, players work their way up the division by winning matches, suffering relegation if you fall out of form. This makes for fair and competitive matchups.

There is also a tier system. Players select their team from one of three tiers, with each tier containing teams of a similar quality, again this is done to make matchups fair.

MyTEAM

MyTEAM however, is a lot more complicated. As a player, you have control of your entire team, from your choice of playbook to players, build your team from scratch as you attempt to turn it into a Championship winning setup.

It takes some work though, it's not as simple as just picking five great players and sending them out on the court. You will have to play around with the different play styles and players that you unlock along the way, to see which best suits your style and which will help you pick up the most wins.

Whilst MyTEAM is classed as an online game-mode, there are also single player modes available. So whilst you are beginning and learning the ropes, it might be worthwhile taking on the computer, to work your way up the ranks.

The weekly challenges are a really important feature too. Completing these challenges will help players earn a range of rewards, helping to improve their squad.

MyCAREER

MyCareer in NBA 2K20 is a must play game-mode. Create your player from scratch and take them from the streets to NBA as you work your way through the incredible storyline mode. 

This is another game-mode where you have total control of how your career pans out. You will be given many decisions to make along the way, will you choose to go to a higher-rated team with less game time, or start at the bottom of the league and make yourself their star? The choice is yours.

Taking the advice of your manager and sponsors will favor you in terms of monetary rewards, helping you gain that all important VC as you build your player into an MVP candidate.

The storyline this year was written and produced by Spring Hill entertainment. Focusing on some serious real-life issues, the visuals and storyline is better than ever. We advise every NBA 2K20 player to delve into this mode.

NBA 2k20 SHOOTING TUTORIAL (SHOOTING TIPS \u0026 TRICKS) GREEN BAR READY

NBA 2K20 tips: improve your shooting, dribbling and defending

The NBA 2K series has a reputation for producing some of the best sports games on the market and NBA 2K20 is looking likely to match those high standards.

The new game has plenty to offer both seasoned NBA fans and complete novices, however, with a variety of new features it can be difficult for either group to get to grips with it. To help out, the game's senior producer Erick Boenisch has given his advice for each aspect of the game.

How to improve your shooting

A change in controls and strategy can drastically improve your shooting

There are two ways you shoot. When I watch a lot of people they use the X button on Xbox or the Square button on PlayStation. If you look at the pro players they use the right stick to shoot which gives you a little more control – you can choose what hand you go for the lay-up or the dunk with. I'd also recommend going into 2KU to get a feel for the timing of shots. Then when you get into games, strategically you want to get the ball to the open person – they'll have a much higher chance of making a shot than someone who is closely guarded or contested. Ball movement is key in basketball.

How to dribble effectively

Dribbling in NBA 2K20 is simpler than you think

The cool thing about dribbling in our game, at its most simple and pure level, is that the left stick moves your guy around and you don't need to know more than that. But, as you get more experienced with the game, you can start using the modifier to do between the legs dribbles, hesitations, behind the back dribbles and flashy behind the back passes to your teammates. And again, those can all be learned with tutorials in 2KU, where we give you an example of how to do everything in the game. It's a lot to take in if you run through everything, so focus on a few moves, practise those in a couple of games and then layer on more skills as you go.

The best way to steal the ball

Defending is a little harder because all you want to do is get back on offence, but the best way to do that is to play good defence! Stay between your man and the basket, that's the first obvious goal. And give yourself space, if you crowd a guy and he's faster than you, he's going to blow past you every time. You need to know the person you're guarding and what they're good at. If they're good at shooting you need to get a little closer to them – knowledge will go a long way.

What seasoned players need to get used to in NBA 2K20

You have more control over your players than ever before

Our gameplay team works tirelessly to make the game different and better every year. This year there's a brand new motion model in the game on offence and defence; you'll see the players employ a lot more foot planting – momentum feels a little different. There feels like there's a lot more control with the one-to-one stick. I feel like personally, in previous years, I would get stuck in an animation – I'd run, flick the stick up and do things before finally changing directions. This year, you will see that foot plants change direction exactly as you asked for, and ultimately I think that makes for a better play experience where you feel like you're more in control of your players.

Advice for novices in NBA 2K20

Of course, we have 2KU, a tutorial mode which teaches you the basics to basketball if you're really entry-level because we don't want to turn away those fans either. I think like anything, practise makes perfect. There are difficulty levels in the game. We default to pro which sounds very intimidating but it's really not that bad. There is another difficulty level, though, called rookie which is more forgiving – you'll make more of your shots and the opposing team will miss more of theirs. It will give you a chance to learn the controls a little more while still having fun and being competitive.

The second tip I'd offer is, this year in MyCareer, we have something called the MyPlayer Builder, which is a great way to learn the game too because you can create any player you want – you can design a point guard who's quick, you can design a point guard who can shoot threes – you can set whatever attribute caps you want. And then once you've created your guy, you can set your rating to whatever you want, so you can practise with that player and get an idea of what they'll be like when they're fully levelled up. That's just a good way to play with different types of players and learn to play the game differently.
