Badges are the building blocks of NBA 2K, and each badge will provide various boosts on your character in-game. This NBA 2K21 Badges Guide will show and describe everything about the badge, such as getting badges, adding badges, and more.
Quick Facts about NBA 2K21 Badges
• All Badges have 4 Tiers: Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Hall of Fame.
• HOF Badges are only available for primary skills.
• You will get a higher number for Badge upgrades depending on your archetype of choosing attributes.
How Do Badge Points Work?
You choose your maximum attributes during player creation in each of the four categories, Finishing, Shooting, Playmaking, and Defense/Rebounding. You gain potential badge points for allocating attribute points in a category during player creation.
You can add, remove or upgrade badges every time you gain a badge upgrade point. After you have unlocked all of your badge upgrade points, you can add or remove badges at will.
When you create your character on the pie chart, there are small, medium, large, and giant-sized wedges. You can only upgrade badges to gold for archetypes that are small and medium wedges. Large and giant wedges can have their badges upgraded to the Hall of Fame.
Bronze badges cost 1 point, Silver 2 points, Gold 3 points, and Hall of Fame cost 4 points.
How to Get Badges in NBA 2K21?
Here we’ll bring a detailed guide on how to get badges fast in NBA 2K21.
First, just as in last year’s game, consistently making plays associated with a skill category builds experience in that area which can then be used to unlock badges. For example, pulling off moves like the Reverse Layup (move & hold the Right Stick towards the baseline, while driving along baseline) and Euro Step Layup (double tap X / Square while driving to the hoop) builds your Finishing XP meter. Once you’ve increased your XP enough, you’ll then be able to choose a badge for your player, such as, say, Acrobat.
Second, from a shooting perspective, to set your matches to the “Pro” difficulty setting — this will ensure the opposition is tough, but not too tough, and certainly not too easy — as well as set quarters to 12 minutes. This will ensure you optimize gameplay time with minimal interruptions.
Third, this is completely up to the player — but I would highly recommend changing “Shot Timing” to “Real Player %” in the gameplay settings. This means that the likelihood of hitting a shot will rely more on your player’s overall attributes rather than your timing when taking a shot.
Fourth, you want to focus on getting as good a teammate’s grade as possible because the higher your team’s chemistry is, the better you perform and the faster you’ll earn badges.
Fifth, I would also recommend partaking in Training and the gym as often as possible to find your player’s sweet spot on the court. That’s a “grind,” no doubt, but once you get comfortable with your player’s shot and animation, you’ll find your player taking and comfortably making more mid-range shots than usual.
Additionally, in team training sessions, you can get insane amounts of Badge progression points.
Finally, you’re obviously going to make more progress grinding toward badges by playing lower-ranked teams instead of taking on adamant opposition.
How to Add Badges to MyTeam Cards in NBA 2K21?
Adding badges to your cards can help give your players that extra edge, but how do you add these items in MyTeam?
First off, log into your MyTeam and select Lineups Management. Select the active lineup and then hit A on Xbox/X on PlayStation on the player you want to apply a badge. Once you do this, you will see a list of badges added to your player. On this screen, you will get a look at what badges are currently on your player, as well as those that are not. Badges with a bronze, silver, gold or purple image next to the name mean that a badge is already on them. That color indicates the badge class that is currently equipped. Players can be given either a Bronze, Silver, Gold or Hall of Fame (purple color) badge, with the Hall of Fame badge being the best.
If a badge is highlighted in green, this means that you can upgrade this badge with a card in your collection.
If you want to upgrade this highlighted badge, select A/X, and you will be able to do so. Keep in mind, though, that once you equip a badge to a player, you will not be able to take off that badge and use it on another player. If you want to equip a different player with that same badge, you will need to pick up a new badge. Badges can be found in packs or at the Auction House. Of course, the Auction House is also the best place to trade NBA mt.
