NBA 2K22 is the latest annual entry from 2K Sports and there was no doubt that the game would include a bevy of different camera angle options for you to adjust to your liking.

There are always plenty of different options for how you want to experience NBA 2K games, whether that may be a side view option like you’d see on TV or even a behind the back of the player option instead.

NBA 2K22 has both next-gen and current-gen versions out there this year, but the good news is that changing camera angles is pretty standard across both versions.

NBA 2K22 Camera Angle Change

When it comes to adjusting settings, you would assume going to the Features menu from the main screen would give you the ability to change camera angles. However, that is not the case as this can only be done from within a game.

From within a game, press the equivalent of the start button on your platform to bring up the pause menu. From there, simply slide on over to the Camera option and select it.

The current-gen and next-gen versions of the game are quite similar here, as you scroll to the right on next-gen and down on current-gen to get to the Camera icon.

You will now be brought immediately to the screen with Camera Options to choose from, with Rail being the default on next-gen and Broadcast being the default on current-gen. There are 12 total base options on next-gen and 13 on current-gen for you to choose from, with it not being the exact same ones either. In fact, the default Rail on next-gen isn’t even available on current-gen. There are also up to seven options that you can adjust depending on which camera angle you choose.

When doing this in-game and selecting a new camera angle, something will pop up asking if you want to save this camera setting for future use or just for this game only, so choose the one you want and get back into the game.
