How To Dunk A Basketball In Stray

As you maneuver through The Slums, you’ll find plenty of different unique faces in this land. As you make your way towards Azooz, the Barterer to try to sell your energy drink cans to get a music sheet, you’ll see a random basketball at the top of the stairs. If you approach it, you may notice that there is also a ramp, with a slight curve leading towards a bin at the bottom. If you try to approach it head-on, you may run into an issue with the ball bouncing away and not making it in, so you’ll want to find the perfect angle.

After a few attempts, it seems the best way to approach this is almost straight on, but slightly left of the middle, so the tip of your right ear is almost in perfect line with the middle stripe. After you know you’re lined up, walk forward and watch it roll down. With a few different attempts, this was the most successful, however, this may differ for other players. Playing around with the physics on offer will help you land the perfect shot, and claim another trophy.
