Whether you’re a sharpshooter or a point guard, mastering the art of long-distance shooting is essential. In NBA 2K16, having a limitless range can be a game-changer.

In this comprehensive guide, we’ll explore the strategies, badges, and techniques to help you achieve that coveted limitless range.

Part 1: Understanding the Basics

1. What Is Limitless Range?

  • Limitless Range is a badge in NBA 2K16 that enhances your shooting ability beyond the three-point line.
  • It allows you to take shots from ridiculously deep distances with a higher chance of success.

2. Attributes and Skills

  • Before chasing the limitless range, ensure your player has a solid foundation:
    • Three-Point Shooting (3PT): Max out this attribute to increase your shooting range.
    • Offensive Consistency: Consistent shooting matters, especially when attempting long shots.
    • Badges: Besides limitless range, focus on badges like Catch and ShootDeep-Range Deadeye, and Corner Specialist.

3. Shot Timing and Release

  • Perfect your shot timing. The release point varies for each player, so practice until it becomes muscle memory.
  • Use the shot meter to gauge your timing. Green releases have a higher chance of success.

4. Shot Selection

  • Don’t force shots. Take open looks and avoid contested shots.
  • Step-backs and pull-ups are effective for creating space.
