You can select from a number of different jump shots.

Like previous titles in the NBA 2K series, NBA 2K19 starts your MyPLAYER out with a fairly generic jumpshot. While some may like this jumpshot, others can find it throws off their game drastically. Thankfully there is a way to change your jumpshot to be more the way you like and I’m here to show you how. Below you will learn how to change jumpshot animation in NBA 2K19.

Access The MyPLAYER Animations Menu

To start, access the MyPLAYER Menu from the navigation screen. Select the menu and you will be taken to the MyPLAYER customization screen. On this screen there are a number of options you can select to change for your MyPLAYER. We want the My Animations tab. Scroll to this tab and select it to get taken to the Animations menu.

Change Your Jumpshot on the My Animations Screen

Note: If you don’t like the jump shots you have, you can purchase more from the Animation Store which is the tab directly beside the My Animations tab on the My Player customization menu.

The My Animations screen is the hub for all things animations relating to your MyPLAYER. At this screen you can change Shots, Dribble Moves, Dunks and Layups, and more. For now though we are going to focus on our jump shot. To change your jump shot, select the jump shots options and choose whichever jump shot you want. Equip the jump shot and you are good to go.

NBA 2K19 Jumpshot Creator

At level 75 and up you can create your own jumpshot.

If you are level 75 and up, you will have access to the Jump Shot Creator. This submenu allows you to create your own custom jump shot for your character. To access this menu, hold x (or PS4 equivalent) at the My Animations screen. You will then be taken to a new screen which lets you tweak things like Lower/Base, Upper Release, Upper Release 2, and Blending & Release Speed.

      Im having the same issues with my player… and its so frusterating because I don’t have a consistant jumpshot without my customs that im used to… this game is trash… the shooting has literally made my drive to play this game bar to none…. im bored of it… like wtf if we cant hit jumpers in my career games and shot terrible percentages and I was an 80% 3pt shooter in 18 so im not TRASH… this game just needs to be FIXED back to wat they did in the begg

    What jumper are you guys running with? I’ve been using the Steph Curry one lately. Thinking about adding the Wilt Chamberlain free throw to my arsenal.
