From the latest NBA 2K22 Courtside Report, we’ve learned of five new NBA 2K22 playmaking badges that have been added to the game. Here they are:[Also see: NBA 2K22 All-in-One Complete Badges Guide, Breakdown, & Analysis]
- Hyperdrive Badge
- Quick Chain Badge
- Triple Threat Juke Badge
- Post Playmaker Badge
- Glue Hands
These badges are available in the female MyPLAYER / WNBA ‘The W’ mode, but there’s cause to believe these new badges will be in the NBA modes as well.
The Glue Hands Badge makes a return to the game, with the description as “Reduces the chances of an errant pass, while improving the ability to both catch rough passes and quickly make the next move.” The four other new badges didn’t come with a description, but some are self-explanatory. The “Hyperdrive Badge” is likely related to a boost to your player’s speed. “Quick Chain Badge” could be related to chaining dribble moves together. “Triple Threat Juke Badge” and “Post Playmaker Badge” are more or less self-explanatory, with enhancements to triple threat juking and passing out of the post, respectively.
