NBA 2K21 Patch 1.02 Address Pro Stick Aiming, Tuning Fixes

NBA 2K21 Patch 1.02

Patch 1.02 has been released for NBA 2K21. It is currently available for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and will be available for PC and other platforms soon. As with previous official patches, it will come through automatically as long as you’re online. If you encounter any problems, try restarting your console or Steam client.

The patch adds a first boot option for Pro Stick Aiming/Shot Timing, which is also available under settings if you wish to change it later. Shot Aiming can now also be used when the Shot Meter is off, and the speed at which the Pro Stick is deflected now determines the Ideal Shot Aiming (left for a slow flick, right for a fast flick). Standing dunks using the Pro Stick have also been tuned for increased reliability, Park dribbles have been re-mapped to “holds” on the Pro Stick, and a few animations have been cleaned up, among other gameplay adjustments.

Other enhancements in Patch 1.02 for NBA 2K21 include a face update for Andrew Wiggins, as well as fixes for hangs and other issues in MyCAREER and MyTEAM. 2K Share has also now been enabled. Check out the full patch notes below, as well as here in the Forum. A complete update history for NBA 2K21 will also be maintained here in our Wiki.

NBA 2K21 Patch 1.02 Notes

General

  • New Pro Stick Aiming/Shot Timing selector. On your first boot, you will now have the option to choose between using the new Pro Stick Aiming mechanic or the traditional Shot Timing mechanic. Your settings file will be updated with the appropriate selection. As always, you can visit your settings at any time to update your shooting preference.
  • Fixed several hangs that could happen when entering and exiting various game modes during the same session, or when idling out at certain areas.
  • Andrew Wiggins now appears with updated facial hair to more accurately represent his appearance.

Gameplay

  • Enabled the ability to use Pro Stick Shot Aiming with the Shot Meter setting turned off.
  • Ideal Shot Aiming point now determined by how slowly or quickly the Pro Stick is initially deflected when starting a shot. A slow flick will move the ideal aim point to the left, while a fast flick will move the ideal point to the right, giving players more consistency with Pro Stick shooting.
  • Changed Ante Up to use competitive slider settings (more skill-based).
  • When the Shot Feedback setting is set to “OFF,” players and opponents will no longer see Excellent Release (green light) animations.
  • Fixed unwanted fadeaway shots that were playing after immediately shooting out of certain dribble moves.
  • Improved standing dunk reliability when using the Pro Stick.
  • Disabled the double team indicator in an effort to clean up the on-screen UI based on community feedback.
  • Added the ability to shoot driving floaters from further away from the basket.
  • Moving Park dribble moves were remapped to “holds” on the Pro Stick, allowing continued use of Hard Stops with L2/LT after unlocking the Park Handles badge.
  • Cleaned up some animation pops in the dribble move system.
  • Fixed ball physics bugs when Shot Timing was set to Real Player %.
  • Toned down the effectiveness of the Lead to Basket pass feature to prevent exploits.

MyCAREER

MyLEAGUE/MyGM

  • 2K Share Content (Draft Classes/Players/Rosters) should now properly function when accessed.
  • Tuning improvements to Player Progression, based on community feedback. With our new “Boom or Bust” system, player progression/regression has been completely re-written for 2K21 to provide a level of dynamism such that players will follow different career arcs in different playthroughs.
  • Addressed a MyLEAGUE item where the user would hang when selecting the Save As option after previously accessing the shared save list.
