↖ New Takeover Feature: Physical Takeover
- The new Takeover system introduces a fifth type of Takeover called the Physical Takeover.
- Physical Takeover focuses on attributes related to speed, acceleration, vertical, strength, and stamina.
- Activating the Physical Takeover will grant boosts to these attributes, allowing players to excel in areas like speed, agility, and strength.
↖ Takeover Selection Strategy
- Takeovers are categorized into Finishing, Shooting, Playmaking, Defense, and the new Physical category.
- You can choose your Takeover in-game through an in-game menu, allowing for situational strategy and variety.
- The effectiveness of Takeovers depends on your player's existing attributes and skills. Choosing the right Takeover that complements your build is crucial.
↖ Takeover Effects and Attributes
- When activating Takeover, you receive a 10-point attribute boost in the selected category.
- This boost stacks on top of your existing attributes, enhancing your player's performance in that specific area.
- It's important to note that Takeover won't transform your player into a superstar in a low-rated attribute. It's most effective when paired with attributes you've already invested in.
↖ Takeover Rating Boost
- Takeover will temporarily exceed the normal attribute cap of 99, boosting your skills even further.
- For example, if you had a 99 three-point rating and activated a relevant Takeover, your rating could increase to 109 temporarily.
↖ Shot Timing and Shooting Changes
- Shot timing and variability have been adjusted to provide a more balanced shooting experience.
- Green window for shots is larger when open but shrinks when heavily contested or in traffic.
- Shot timing stability becomes a significant factor, affected by your Stability attribute.
- Turning off the shot meter and focusing on learning your timing can increase the green window by 20.
↖ Contest System Improvements
- The contest system has been revamped to emphasize body position over hand location.
- Ghost contests from previous years have been addressed, giving players a more consistent and fair contest experience.
- Heavier penalties for being crowded at the start of a shot but fewer penalties for being out of position on a late closeout.
↖ Defensive Improvements
- Perimeter defense is more responsive with improved control and fewer sliding movements.
- Right-stick steals are reintroduced, offering players more control over their defensive plays.
- Defensive body-ups are more effective, and sliding animations are reduced.

↖ Offensive Players Out of Bounds
- Offensive players going out of bounds will now be penalized according to griefing rules.
- Players who exploit this will receive a negative grade, discouraging unfair gameplay tactics.
↖ Customization Options
- NBA 2K24 offers more controller customization options.
- You can adjust the size and position of on-screen elements like the shot meter, player indicator, and fatigue bar.
