2K Games

WWE 2K17 has been in players' hands for several months now, yet many fans are still struggling to maximise the impact they make in a given fight, be it in regular exhibition matches, MyCareer mode, or against other humans in online multiplayer.

It is not always an easy game to get to grips with (especially those damn glitches), and certain facets of it can be more frustrating than fun, but making use of these tips, you can find your path through the game much more straight-forward and enjoyable.

From mastering submission moves to stirring the crowd up into a frenzy and even dealing with lag online, here are 10 quick tips to help you play like a God (or as JBL would say, "A Wrestling-Uh...God") in WWE 2K17...

10. Use The Alternate Submission Mini-Game

One of the most divisive aspects of WWE 2K17 is its challenging default submission mini-game. It can often result in players losing the match despite dominating in all other areas, but thankfully, there is a solution for those struggling with it.

In the game's options menu, you can change the submission mini-game type from one focused on the right analog stick to the more traditional button-mashing one.

The default submission game sees players chasing a circle, but the alternate one simplifies it by having players mash a corresponding button, and whoever mashes the most will win the exchange.

It takes two seconds to change in the game's menu and can save you a world of headaches.
