NBA 2K20 How to Dunk

There are plenty of different types of dunks to master.

by William Schwartz


There are multiple ways to dunk in NBA 2k20.  Some you can control which type of dunk you want to do, while others will give you a random dunk or possibly a lay-up.  Just because this is a video game, it doesn’t mean that everyone will be able to dunk equally.  The types of dunks that you are capable of will ultimately depend on the stats of the player you are trying to dunk with, so keep that in mind when dunking in 2K20.

If you want to try a dunk want to leave up to the cpu as to whether you attempt a dunk or a lay-up and what type of shot you want to take you can simply use the shoot button when you are close to the hoop.  Press the X button (Xbox) or Square button (PlayStation) when moving towards the hoop to attempt a dunk.

If you want to try different types of dunks you will need to use different controls, using the sticks and triggers to do specific types of dunks.
