    Por que quando o CJ tá longe ele não acerta nenhuma sexta???????

    max your muscle, +muscle = +accuracy

    WARNING
    never save at madd dogg's crib, this will cause all basket balls to never spawn again and this includes madd dogg's personal gym, if you already saved there then F you gonna have to start a new game
    the good point is that 60 points means nothing for the 100% completion so it makes no difference if you score it on your main save or on a new one

    Not true, i can find basketball on sevilla playa (side burglar garage). I always save my file on Madd Dogg's crib after back to Los Santos

    This one is rough. The input lag can make it pretty tricky to get the timing down. It seems if you tap "X" when running to pick up the ball you move a bit faster. You really need every second on this one.

    Hard to learn the timing but what worked for me was: You should release the X button when the ball is on the same level of CJ head, my muscle was also at 100% but i dont know if muscle is a factor.

    After hours and hours i got this one. Here are some tips:

    - as @BerkRider said, have you muscle at 100% for better accuracy;

    - you can't miss any shot. That said, you need to train until you internalize the right timing;

    - as pointed by @murdocbr, you can use some references to get more accurate. I started releasing the X button when the ball was on the same level of CJ's head, after some time i started releasing when CJ's feet reach the maximum height. Try and choose what works better for you;

    - just like @KillswitchScar said, you will need every second. Tap X when returning to the ball to run faster;

    - at first i was losing too much time positioning at the marker. Use the minimap to locate the next marker, you can hold X button while still running to shoot (CJ will automatically turn to take the shot), notice you don't need to be exactly inside the marker to score.

    Hope this saves you some time.

    What worked for me was releasing the X button the exact moment when CJ reaches the peak of his jump. It was quite challenging and required retrying for a few hours, but certainly wasn't nearly as bad as getting the maximum score at Kickstart. Now only Duality remains, if my patience allows doing that once, let alone twice...

    I've learned a few things from going for this achievement:


    -Max Muscle is needed to make shots 100% of the time.

    -To make consistent shots, make sure to release X when the ball is at CJ's head.

    -If you reset the movement stick back to neutral BEFORE you take the shot, CJ won't stumble in his animation. Over the course of the entire minigame, this can save you enough time to make an additional 2 shots to get the score to 64. I missed a shot early on, but because I consistently avoided the stumble animation I was able to get 62 points.

    -On earlier shots (around or after 4) try to go as far back as you can on the red marker. This might make shots initially only worth 1 point net you an extra point.

    Releasing the X as CJ goes upward really helps. Got 62 on my 7th try thanks to that.

    way too much for an achievement, the 30 points one should be enough, same shit as duality before the nerf, it should at least be 25 points
    sunrisegfbpa 8 Jan 2024 03:07
    After months of trying and practicing I got it
    Bumsy 8 Jan 2024 23:10
    Took just over 3 hours even with max muscle. Such a difficult achievement - think the 30 score basketball achievement is enough tbh

    60 pontos é simplesmente demais pra uma conquista assim, entre 30-45 ou 50 ja tá ótimo
