Debunking the Myth of 2K Secretly Patching Jumpshots
If you're a fan of the NBA 2K franchise, then you're probably familiar with the common narrative that when a player starts missing shots, they blame the game and say 2K has patched their jump shots. But is this true? In this article, we'll explore whether 2K really patches jump shots individually or not.

↖ The Impact of Latency on Jump Shots in 2K Games
First and foremost, it's important to note that sometimes there are big patches that affect shooting in general. For example, in season 4, there was a patch that impacted shooting. However, what we're talking about here are individual jump shot patches.
Based on our experience and previous testing, we believe that only 2K regularly patches jump shots individually. There could be a myriad of other reasons why players start missing shots. For example, changes in latency can have a significant impact on your shot. Even a small change of 5-10 milliseconds in latency can cause your jump shot to go haywire. So if you're experiencing a sudden change in your shot, it could be due to latency issues.
↖ How Missing Shots Can Be Affected by Your Performance?
Another reason why you might start missing shots is your own performance. Even the best players have off nights. Sometimes, you're just not in the rhythm, and that can impact your shooting. However, it's important not to use 2K as a scapegoat for your performance. Blaming the game for your misses is an easy excuse, but it's not necessarily accurate.
It's worth noting that even if 2K were to patch your jump shot, it's unlikely to have a significant impact on your performance. Based on our tests, an A to F gap on timing impact is roughly equivalent to just one bronze shooting badge. That's a small difference, and it's unlikely to make or break your game.
Ultimately, there could be a range of outside forces that impact your shooting, so it's important not to jump to conclusions and blame 2K for everything. Instead, focus on improving your performance and adapting to any changes.
While some players might believe that 2K patches jump shots individually, this is not true based on our experience and testing. If you're experiencing issues with your jump shot, it's important to consider other factors that could be impacting your performance. Don't let the narrative of 2K patching your shot hold you back from improving your game.
