In NBA 2K22, you have control over how the court is viewed. Unlike real-world broadcasts where the view is out of your control, you can toggle your camera settings in 2K22 to suit your preferences while playing. There are several different camera angles to choose from to suit all game modes, and you can change them mid-game.
In this guide, we’ll show you how to change our camera settings and preferred shooting angles.
Change the camera angle in NBA 2K22 very simple. All you need to do is pause your game, choose Camera from your pause menu and choose from the available options! You can access this settings menu mid-match, or find your settings menu from the home screen to preset your favorite camera angle.
From this menu, you can browse through the available camera angles using the accompaniments on whatever platform you’re playing on. You can also customize each view by adjusting the height and zoom of the angle, and choose how the camera moves as the asset changes.
There is no right or wrong camera angle in 2K22 (although some pro players and streamers swear by certain settings), so try out a few and choose whichever you feel is best for you.
Again, there is no right angle to use for 2K22 – it’s all about your personal preferences and what works best for you. Below, we’ll run through some popular options so you can get a quick look at some of the angles and pros and cons of each to consider when tweaking your settings.
The 2K view is the rotation of the 2K line, and for good reason. With this camera angle, you can see the whole field and can see your entire team at once. You can also get a better understanding of the distance between players compared to some other angles. This view is great for quick breakouts, precise point transfers, and running more complex plays.
The broadcast view simulates the look you’d get if you were watching an NBA game on TV. The game looks great from this angle, and it’s a great way to play the game if you’re looking for a more immersive experience. In the default streaming view, you will experience some court visibility issues while running fastbreak. You never get a full view of the court, so you can sometimes go blind if you’re throwing a deep exit.
The broadcast stadium view fixes this issue a bit by giving you a higher viewing angle, but you still don’t get that full-field look.
Nosebleed view is a good midpoint between 2K and Broadcast views. You get a great angle on the action that simulates watching a real-life match, but you get a good view of the court and will never throw a pass off the screen.
Player Lock view is the only angle used in MyPlayer mode, so it should look familiar if you’ve explored NBA 2K22 thoroughly. It’s a really fun gameplay if you’re focused on completing challenges for a particular player, but can get a bit chaotic if you’re constantly switching between players on either end of the tier. .
In the clip above, this angle looks great as we focus on using Anthony Edwards in defense and breaking when switching between a few characters. But if you’re in the first half at either end of the floor, there’s a lot of passes and you’re switching to whichever player has the ball, it’s a nightmare to watch the cameras fly all the time.
Just like in real life, the Skybox view gives you the best view of the entire stadium. You can see the entire stadium, the benches, the fans – a little bit of everything. It’s a solid angle to play and you can also consider all the little details NBA 2K22 must provide.
Pan view keeps the camera centered and pans to both ends of the floor. This is easily the most dynamic camera angle in NBA 2K22. Spinning with players as the game shifts to the other side of the field is really fun and puts you right on the field. It look nice but it can take some time to get used to as a player. As the camera rotates, you must be used to adjusting the direction you are moving as the camera moves. If you can get used to the variation in a few games, good for you – this is a fun camera angle to play with.
