It’s always exciting when a competitive multiplayer game gets an update that helps get rid of cheaters. NBA 2k21 did just that today.

Today it received a hotfix that players have been wondering about as there’s been no official word on what exactly is new or different.

NBA 2k21 Update April 12

To be clear, there has been no official word from 2k21 developer Visual Concepts about what today’s update changed. However, through unofficial announcements, we’ve been able to put together at least one of the patch’s main focuses: fixing the zen aim cheating issue.

According to a tweet from Mike Wang, the gameplay director for the NBA 2k series, an update to fix the zen aim cheating issue was set to come early this week.

The issue allowed cheaters to score extra points by exploiting a bug in-game. Additionally, Ronnie Singh one of 2K’s digital marketing directors tweeted this morning, “Zen be gone” alluding to the fix.

For now, it seems like the NBA 2k21 update from today, April 12, only focused on that one issue, but unless official patch notes are released from either 2K or Visual Concepts, we just don’t know for certain.
