NBA 2K21 All-in-One Complete Badges & Takeover Guide, Breakdown, & Analysis (Next-Gen & Current-Gen)

Here is the NBA 2K21 Badges & Takeover Guide & Analysis, for both Next-Gen (Xbox Series X, PS5) on Page 1 and Current-Gen (Xbox One, PS4, Switch, PC) on Page 2.

How to Unlock Badges

Badges are organized by the categories of Finishing, Shooting, Playmaking, and Defense/Rebounding. You unlock badges by building up badge points in each skill via your in-game performance related to that skill. For example, getting assists will build up points for Playmaking, getting steals and blocks will build up points for Defense / Rebounding, etc. After getting enough badge points for a skill, you’ll be able to choose from one of that skill’s badge.

There are also minimum attribute requirements to unlock a badge – which are included in this Badges guide. Some requirements may vary and depend on build, position, and in some cases, overall rating.

Takeovers (24)

Instead of limiting players to eight general archetype-based takeovers, Takeovers have been broken from 8 (on Current-Gen) into 24 more specific takeover abilities on Next-Gen. Takeovers give temporary boosts to your MyPLAYER that you can fire off when your player gets hot.

From 2K Gameplay Director, Mike Wang:

We’ve also changed Takeover to be a multi-tier system! Once you set up your ratings caps and vitals, you’ll be presented with a subset of the list above based on the type of build you made. Then you choose one ability for your primary and another for your secondary, or if you want, you can put the same ability in both slots if you want to “double up” on it. When you’re in-game, your takeover meter will fill up your primary takeover slot first. Once filled, you can choose to activate it right away or wait to try and fill up your secondary slot. You must be careful because you take the risk of losing all your progress if you turn the ball over or miss a bad shot. But if you can fill in your secondary slot, you can activate both the primary and secondary takeovers together and keep them active for a longer period of time. Finally, if you want to devastate your opponent even further, you can wait even longer and try to fill up the Team Takeover meter. If you can fill all three, activating will enable your entire teams’ takeovers and it’s pretty much over for the competition. And just like in current-gen, activating Team Takeover also allows you to have user-control over your teammates in MyCAREER games.
