NBA 2K24 Kobe Bryant

A new patch has arrived at NBA 2K24 and it's probably the biggest update the game has received. This patch brought a plethora of changes and finally addressed some of the more glaring issues in the game, such as shot coverage detection, latency in online games, dunk meter logic, and much more.

Update 1.4 also makes some design changes to the courts, as well as updating some players' faces and general likenesses. It also fixed some bugs that players were experiencing in The City and MyCAREER.

The goal of this patch is to fix most of the problems the game is facing and deliver a more realistic game to the NBA 2K24 players. Hopefully, this will make the gameplay more realistic, authentic, and above all, enjoyable.

So, let's take a look at the changes Update 1.4 is bringing to NBA 2K24.

Biggest changes in Update 1.4

As mentioned above, Update 1.4 is already here and it brings some huge gameplay changes to NBA 2K24. 2K finally listened to the community and made some crucial changes, such as improving the shot coverage detection, so that it detects if the player is open or wide open.

The shooting was finally buffed, even if just slightly. Close shots, wide-open jumpshots and the Limitless Range Badge are all being buffed, which will hopefully fix the shooting problems NBA 2K24 has.

On-ball stealing has also been addressed, and hopefully, we won't ever again see players spamming the steal button and stealing the ball from the other side of the court. This was arguably the biggest problem in NBA 2K24 until now, so it's good to see that 2K has finally addressed it.

With shooting buffed, hopefully, you won't miss many wide-open shots.

The dunking meter wasn't showing properly for most players, with users having very small dunk meters despite their high dunk attribute. 2K also addressed this problem in Update 1.4, improving the Dunk meter logic by making the dunk meter window size better reflect the difficulty of the dunk.

It's also worth noting that, this update also brought changes to reduce the user-reported latency in multiplayer games on The City. This change by itself is incredible if well implemented, as input lag is a big issue on NBA 2K24 and is one of the worst things in the game.

Update 1.4 introduced plenty of other changes, and you can take a look at them below.
