Description: here is an advanced passing guide for NBA 2K21 for all the gamers that are looking to expand their move set.
Throwing a pass is one of the most basic actions you can perform in basketball. Just like in real life, NBA 2K21 players can throw a variety of different types of passes, suitable for different situations.
There are tons of passes to pick up, so be prepared. We start from the basics here. A normal pass is started by pressing X on PlayStation, A on Xbox, and B on Nintendo Switch. It is as easy as NBA 2K21, but advanced passes come later.
To bounce, press Circle on PlayStation, B on Xbox, or A on Switch. Use it to evade defenders with a longer range. Throw a balloon pass with Triangle on PlayStation, Y on Xbox and X on Switch. Use this one to get over taller defenders who could catch lower passes in the air.
This is where the transition to NBA 2K21 gets a little more advanced. To skip the pass, press and hold X on PlayStation, A on Xbox, or B on Switch. This will target the furthest receivers, making cross passes easier.
To fool defenders with a false pass, press Triangle and Circle simultaneously on PlayStation, Y and B on Xbox, and X and A on Switch.
Skipped passes give you an added advantage when throwing the ball. To make one, press Square and X on PlayStation, X and A on Xbox, and Y and B on Switch.
The Icon Pass is one of the most important advanced passes in NBA 2K21. It allows you to target specific teammates no matter where they are on the field. To see the player icons and choose a receiver, press R1 on PlayStation, RB on Xbox, and R on Switch.
Flashy passes are less important, but sometimes you just want to add a little flair to a pass. To make one, double-tap Circle on PlayStation, B on Xbox, or A on Switch.
NBA 2K21’s most eye-catching forward pass might just be the alley. To start one, double-tap Triangle on PlayStation, Y on Xbox, or X Switch. To launch into the hallway, simply enter the same button while pushing the left stick toward the basket.
The following passes are some of the most advanced you can make in NBA 2K21. Make sure to memorize them as they are extremely useful.
A forward pass will pass the receiver to the basket prior to the pass. You will need to hold down the button to begin the cut and then release it to make the pass. Hold Triangle on PlayStation, Y on Xbox, or X on Switch.
Full receiver control passes allow you to control the receiver by holding down a button before releasing it to pass. Press and hold Circle on PlayStation, B on Xbox, or A on Switch.
Tactile passes are fast and waste no time when you need to make an immediate pass. Press X on PlayStation, A on Xbox, or B on Switch just before a pass reaches your hands to perform a touch pass to the next teammate.
Pro Stick passes are those that use the right stick to pass in any direction in NBA 2K21. To do this, move the right stick while holding down R1 on PlayStation, RB on Xbox, or R on Switch.
Back and forth allows you to pass, then get a pass after repositioning. Press and hold X on PlayStation, A on Xbox, or B on Switch, then release to catch the ball again after moving.
Driving within limits can save precious time at the end of close matches. To get the ball rolling, press Triangle while logging in on PlayStation, Y on Xbox, and X on Switch.
