NBA 2K18: How to Layup

How to Layup in NBA 2K18

If you’re on the offensive in NBA 2K18, you’ll want to make sure you have all of the basic techniques down. One such thing that people are having a few problems with is how to layup in the game and actually score.

It turns out that the basics of actually performing a layup in NBA 2K18 is simple. All you have to do is hold the right stick toward the hoop as you’re sprinting towards it with R2/ RT. This means that you’re basically holding the shoot button while driving toward the hoop.


Of course, there’s more than one layup on offer in NBA 2K18. A reverse layup requires you to hold the right stick toward the baseline while driving the baseline. There’s also the Euro Step variant if you want to get a little fancier, too. In order to do this, simply double tap Square/ X when you’re driving toward the hoop once more.

The problem, however, seems to lie in the fact that there’s a shot meter that you’ll need to nail in order to score, but there’s no visible meter for you to see in the game. As such, it might just take a bit of practice before you’re sinking them every time.
