How Do I Dunk?


How Do I Dunk?


A recurring question we’ve received regarding NBA 2K14 is how to dunk.  Below is a quick guide:


  1. Lace up your favorite pair of basketball shoes and grab your controller.
  2. On Offense, hold down R2 (PS4) or the Right Trigger (XB1), then move the Right Stick on the controller. Using the Left Stick, move your player toward the basket.
    • This activates your character’s turbo sprint and modifies both the shot button (Square on the PS4 or X on the XB1) and Shot Stick.
  3. While moving toward the basket, move the Right Stick in any direction to dunk.
    • Tapping the Right Stick will cause you to dribble.
    • Holding the Right Stick in any direction initiates a dunk.
  4. Initiating a dunk is only part of the process, though! In order to attempt a dunk, you need to be moving towards the basket (unless your Standing Dunk rating is maxed-out and you have any Dunk Package equipped.
    • Additionally, attempting a dunk requires a clear path, meaning another character can’t be between you and the basket.
    • Because there's an exception to every rule, though: Some dunkers do have the ability to dunk over defenders standing close the basket.


NOTE: If you want to make a dunk, you need to have a high enough dunk rating to add a “Dunk Package” to your character.

  • If you don’t have a high enough dunk rating, you won’t have a package available. 
  • To edit your character's Dunk Package, follow these steps:
    • Access the main menu in MyCAREER Mode
    • Bring up the Player Upgrades Menu
    • Select Animations
    • Within the Animations menu, scroll over to Animation Upgrades
    • On this screen, you can purchase and equip one of the Dunk Packages to your character.
      •  Each Dunk Package has a required skill level necessary to unlock, it will tell you if you have the necessary skill level to do so.


  • Another set of Dunk Packages are only available within certain parks, unlocking dunks specific to the park itself.
  • In order to unlock those specific Dunk Packages, access the Park Upgrades screen (within the the Animations menu)
  • From here, you can unlock and equip park-exclusive Dunk Packages that will take priority over your other dunks.
