How to Win Horse in Courting Calloway in NBA 2K23

To beat the game of Horse (or H.O.R.S.E. for all you sticklers), in the NBA 2K23 Courting Calloway quest, you have to take a shot and sink it. Then, your opponent has to match you, or they get a letter. If you miss, you get a letter. The first one to get all the five letters that spell out the word “horse” loses. I know most of you know how the rules work, but we might get people who don’t, so we have to cover all our bases. Anyways, the point here is to figure out how to win this game easiest. The answer here seems to be jump shots, and try to make them green (more on that in our How to Get Green Shots guide).

When we talk about free shots and the part of the quest where you have to win in free throw competition, we strongly suggest to turn the difficulty down to rookie. I know that most of you don’t want to spend VC or attributes on Free Shots, but this will help you get green shots.

So, that’s one of the easiest way to beat the game of Horse in the NBA 2K23 Courting Calloway quest. However, what if jump shots are a problem for you? Well, the alternative is hook shots, that will help you if you are center. In fact, you can even go with those from the beginning, and you should do just fine. Do them from inside the free throw line, and again, make sure they land green. It’s pretty easy to do with a little practice and for some reason, the AI is just gonna keep missing them. Not every shot, but most of them. This strategy should help you win the game of H.O.R.S.E. in no time. If you have a different strategy that you think also works well, let us know in the comments.
