The best hitting settings in MLB the Show 22 are “Timing” for new players, “Directional” for returning players with normal reaction time, and “Zone” for the seasoned veterans of the series. Also, you have three batting modes in form of Normal Swing, Contact Swing, or Power Swing. These are tied to “A, B, & X” buttons on Xbox, “Cross, Circle, & Square” buttons on PlayStation, and “B, A, & Y” buttons on Nintendo Switch, respectively.

Timing mode works for new players best because you really just have to time your hits as the ball approaches you. This takes the pressure off you of worrying about ball direction, your placements, and the directions of the hit. The directional hitting interface adds 8 directional choices for you to choose from. If you are able to understand the pitch but are not quick with fast reflexes then this is how you should start the game with.


And finally, you can climb up to the Zone hitting interface. This is the most difficult and genuine experience in MLB The Show 22. You must be able to monitor the ball and plan your hits as it approaches you while using this interface. If you are not experienced with this style beforehand, then you will feel it’s the hardest way to play the game. But the precision it offers is the topmost when compared to other interfaces. This is our choice to nail it on the RTTS mode. But we suggest you start off with other modes depending on your experience with the series.

These angles give quite a bit more of the pitcher for you to judge. But “Strike Zone 3” is also preferred by many players. But it adds a bit of fish eye effect which some players hate. So the “Zoom” camera angle let you get a middle ground between these two angles.
