Experience the All-New Badge System in NBA 2K24 Available on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S

2K has announced the all-new badge system coming to NBA 2K24 on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S, allowing players to focus on their strengths and experiment with different builds to find success with their MyPLAYER.

NBA 2K24 is bringing new elements to the badge system for New Gen that helps players perfect their craft and dominate the positions they love to play. Whether that be a high scoring skilled slasher, a physical ball handler, a playmaker through passing or becoming the best defender in the league, there is something new for everyone to help take their game to new heights.


More details on the all-new badge system coming in NBA 2K24 on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S outlined below:

  • More Balanced Badges. NBA 2K24 brings 24 new skill badges to the court, raising the total to 77 badges overall, across MyTEAM and MyCAREER, boasting enhanced flexibility and balance to the game. This year includes new badges for Scoring, Ball-Handling/Passing and Defense to help players build on their strengths and create a MyPLAYER all their own.
  • New MyPLAYER Builder Experience. The MyPLAYER builder experience has received some major upgrades. NBA 2K24 will introduce customisable NBA Player Templates along with a new attribute builder page, additional badge tier rankings, archetype improvements that help to prevent meta builds, and more.
  • Badge Level Progression. An all-new badge progression system that helps bring a more authentic feeling to a player’s MyPLAYER build. Players will no longer have to pick and choose which badges to equip to their MyPLAYER, and they’re no longer stuck within the badge points and attribute categories they were once limited to. Badges are earned by badge usage, meaning the more a player uses a badge in-game, the more they’ll progress toward the next level in which they qualify.
