  2. Curved Bar (mini): Similar to the straight bar, but with a curved design. It is also in a compact or mini format.

  3. Curved Bar (straight): This style features a curved bar as the shot meter but is presented in a straight format.

How To Change Shot Meter?

Changing the shot meter is pretty easy, and you can go about it in two ways. Both are given below, along with the steps you need to follow to change the shot meter.

Through In-game Settings

One of the ways through which you can change the shot meter is through the in-game settings. 

Here are the steps:

  1. Open the in-game options/quit menu.

  2. Look for and select “Controller Settings” in the menu.

  3. In the “Controller Settings” menu, navigate to “Shot Meter Type.”

  4. Choose the shot meter type that you prefer from the available options.

Through My Career Settings

The second way of achieving your goal is through My Career settings.

Here are the steps to do it:

  1. Enter the My Career mode.

  2. In My Career, find the “Animations” tab.

  3. Inside the “Animations” tab, select “Gameplay Effects.”

  4. Look for the “Jump Shot Meter” option and choose your preferred shot meter style.

Why MyCareer is the Best Option?

This method lets you preview the shot meter’s appearance in the game, making it easier to select the one that suits your preferences. Both methods achieve the same result, so you can choose the one you find more convenient.

Once you have mastered the art of jump shots or feel like the shot meter is no longer required, you can turn it off. It is a pretty straightforward thing to do. All you need to do is go to the options/quit menu.

From there, move over to ‘Controller Settings.’ You will see the ‘Shot Meter’ option that you can turn off there.

My Recommendations For Shot Meter

It is worth noting that fifteen more will be released yearly than the five-shot meters currently available. Therefore, stay on the lookout for them as well because utilizing the shot meter correctly can truly help you annihilate your opponent.

Plus, instead of getting tricky into the details, I suggest always relying on the MyCareer setting to set your shot meter. Again, if you have any queries, shoot them in the comments, and I will try to answer them.
