NBA 2K23 has become increasingly realistic and immersive, allowing players to experience the high-paced action of the sport. As with many sports video games, players must strategically use their resources, such as energy and adrenaline. In NBA2K23, the R2 button is used to run faster, and the adrenaline meter determines how much energy you have left. This article will cover maximizing your use of R2 and Adrenaline when playing 2K23.
Tips for Making the Most of R2
When running with R2, holding it down for only a short time is important. This can cause you to lose adrenaline, the energy you need to perform certain actions. Instead, it is better to tap R2 lightly. This will give you a speed boost without wasting your adrenaline.
Hesi Hop Three-Point Shot
Another way to maximize your use of R2 and adrenaline is to combine moves. For example, you can use the Hesi Hop into a three-point shot. To do this, you run up the court, flick the right stick in the same direction as the ball, flick the left stick in the opposite direction, and then hold down R2 while flicking the right stick diagonally. This will boost your speed and get you open for a three-point shot.
Russell Westbrook to LeBron’s Step Back Move
You can also use Russell Westbrook in LeBron’s step-back move. You’ll hold down R2 and flick the right stick straight up to do this. Then, move your right stick diagonally up to the opposite way of the ball. Once you do this, you can take off and get a speed boost. This can be done with any signature size-up and switched from left to right or vice versa.
Spinback Move for Open Shots
The Spinback is another move you can use to get open shots. To perform this move, you’ll run up the court, flick down diagonally on the right stick, and then do a half spin with the right stick. If the ball is in your right hand, you’ll flick the right stick from top to bottom. If the ball is in your left hand, you’ll flick it from top to bottom on the left side. After this, you can create a shot with a Luca Step Back, L2 Quick Stop, or any other move.
Misdirection Behind the Back for Open Shots
The Misdirection Behind the Back is another move that can be used to get open shots. To do this, you’ll hold down R2, flick the left stick in the same direction as the ball, and then flick the right stick diagonally down to the opposite side. Once you do this, you can take off and get a speed boost.
Creating Space with the Fake Peak Move
Finally, the Fake Peak is another move that can create space. You’ll run up the court, double tap Square and Time to Shot to do this. This move can be used to get two to three open shots per game, as it is not very predictable and can create enough space for an open shot.
