NBA 2K24 Best Paint Beast Build

Paint Beasts as their name suggests control the painted area of the court with their height, weight and amazing ability to convert a ball into dunk.

Paint is an area in the NBA where all the players fight for ball control and try to score with layups or dunk shots. Having a player who is a beast inside the paint can change the whole course of the game in NBA 2K24. These players are gigantic, strong, and have extremely large wing spans. One thing we like to explain is that the paint area is colored differently from the rest of the court. It is next to the basket and offers the highest opportunity to score goals and win rebounds.

In this guide, we will create a paint beast build in NBA 2K24, which is also proficient as an Inside Center. This build has amazing ball control, steal ability, rebound snatch and all of this topped with their unfathomable dunking ability.

How to set up Paint Beast build?

Paint beasts are great defenders and can turn the game on its head with their ability to dunk. Not only do they possess amazing strength to fight off the defenders, but they can also push the attackers with ease. Due to their massive height and weight, Paint beasts play an important role in controlling the ball inside the paint and act as a playmaker for their teammates. 

The first part of our build deals with the offense. As Paint beasts in NBA 2K24 only control the paint area near the basket, the only attribute we care about is Standing dunk (92). It allows us to perform perfect dunks from under the basket once we push away the defenders. 

The next part of the build is all about playmaking. As we are not concerned with controlling the ball here, we only need to focus on Pass accuracy (70). This allows us to pass the ball around if we fail to convert it into a basket. 

The next one is defense. Paint Beasts are marvelous defenders by default as it comes with the job. For this purpose, we have 88 points in Interior defense, 87 points in Block, and 93 points in Defensive rebound. A paint beast is incomplete if they can’t defend their paint in basketball. 

Physical is the section where Paint Beasts shine in NBA 2K24. As the name implies, a Paint beast must be physically strong and have much energy to spare. For this purpose, we have put 99 points in strength to gain some of the best HoF badges in the game. 90 points go into Stamina and 80 into Vertical to complete our beastly build.
