  • Use natural light. Man-made lightning, like the lights from your bathroom, has a slight colored hue to it. This can make your Face Scan look weird.
  • Try to do your scan outside in a shady spot or on an overcast day.
  • Avoid grass or harsh colors behind you. If you're not careful, the green may wind up on your face.
  • Have a friend do the scan for you using your phone's rear camera.
  • Remove anything obstructing your face including hats, glasses or hair.
  • If the scan fails to appear in-game, close out NBA 2K20 and open it again. It may work the second time.
  • As long as the base model looks alright, you can always change the skin tone and hair options later on in the process.
