Once again, the scope for challenges remains limited in 2K, so let’s start by explaining what exactly can be challenged. No matter the case, challenges are inaccessible while the game is in play. That means the referee will have to blow their whistle and stop the game entirely for you to utilize it. Therefore, it’s important to make sure it’s worth it. Even if it may mean waiting a little longer than you’d like, patience could end up making all the difference.

In order to trigger a potential challenge, you’ll only need to push the Touchpad on PlayStation, the View Button on Xbox, and the Minus symbol on the Nintendo Switch. But what if you’re unsure about triggering the challenge option for fear of potentially losing it? As it happens, there is no need to be!

Once the challenge screen appears, players will be faced with only two options: Challenge Call or Timeout Only. As long as one avoids a slip of the button, navigating this should be smooth sailing. There are still two things to keep in mind, though. For starters, teams are only allowed seven timeouts per game. Additionally, using your only challenge will also burn a timeout. That is why it is crucial to wait for just the right time.
