Knowing when to pass is one of the basic things in the NBA court, but so is knowing when to fake one. Here, we will show you how to fake pass in NBA 2K21.
What is the NBA 2K21 fake pass?
This is a popular move that will allow you to fool your opponent into thinking that you will make a pass when you are staying with the ball in your hands.
How to Fake Pass in NBA 2K21?
To trick opponents with a fake pass, you'll need to press the lob pass button and bounce pass button at the same time, that is to say,
• PS4: Press Triangle + Circle while standing or driving to the hoop.
• Xbox One: Press Y + B while standing or driving to the hoop.
• Nintendo Switch: Press X + A while standing or driving to the hoop.
The fake pass can be executed at pretty much any point in NBA 2K21 if you're in possession of the ball. It's important to note, though, that doing a fake pass will cause players to pick up the ball and stop their dribble.
When to Use It?
The fake pass though can be particularly useful, especially if you're able to play quickly. You can pretend you're passing one way before stopping, often moving an opponent's player to where that pass would have gone, opening up space elsewhere in the attacking part of the court.
But be aware that your options are limited after performing the action. Since it stops your dribble, you'll need to shoot, or pass, after doing a fake pass. Of course, you can also keep faking until it works.
With that said, failure to think things through can lead to being double-teamed or stripped, especially in online matches.
However, the fake pass should work considerably well against the AI opponents in MyCareer mode. Those opponents will get faked out almost every time, depending on the difficulty setting.
