Are you following NBA 2K20 on Instagram? There’s a new filter that rates you. If you ever wanted to find out what is your OVR, now’s the chance to do so. Keep in mind though that this is just for fun. Here’s is how to use it. This is a filter for the camera so you need a device that has one. If you try to follow the Twitter link and open it in a web browser it will tell you that you need a mobile device.
You will need to have the Instagram app. Open the app and tap the Search symbol on the bottom menu bar. It should be the second one after the home symbol. In the search field start typing NBA 2K20. Make sure to select the official account. It’s the one that has the small blue mark next to the name. You don’t actually need to follow the game’s profile to use the filter. You will find the URL to the filter in the profile description. Follow it and you will be prompted to download the app or open the app. This is a bit confusing since we are already accessing the URL within the app.
Choose the Open in Instagram option. The camera will open and you will notice a new filter called NBA 2K20. Select it and switch to the front camera. The filter works when it detects a face. The filter puts “What’s Your 2K Rating?” above your head. Tap once again and it will “calculate” your rating. The rating is randomly generated. You can share the picture on Instagram and with your friends. You can also delete it and take a new one. If you want a 99 rating just try it a few times.
Several NBA players and others have tried the filter as well. You can see their rating and reactions in the stories. Ronnie 2K was disappointed with his 70 rating. 2KTV host Alexis Morgan was afraid she was going to get a 60 but ended up with 90 in the end. YouTuber CashNasty got 99 and he was pretty happy about it. Another YouTuber iPodKingCarter got 85 and he wasn’t impressed at all. Coach Chris Matthews, also known as LethalShooter, who works with many NBA athletes got 89 rating. He was hoping for a 90 so he was content with the result. Cam Reddish from Atlanta Hawk got 80 and he was surprised about it. Probably because his rating is actually 73.
