NBA 2K18 MyPLAYER Training Guide
The goal in MyCAREER is to reach an overall of level 99 with your MyPLAYER. Reaching 99 overall basically means you are officially a baller or something. Anyways, in order to train your character in NBA 2K18, you need to utilize the available resources to improve overall level and increase your badges. Here is a quick NBA 2K18 MyPLAYER training guide to help get you started.
G Training Facility (Ability Cap + Turbo)
Like the name suggests, the G Training facility is the place to come in order to increase your level cap. Like the training gym in NBA 2K17, you will find a number of exercises inside the center:
- Leg Press
- Clean Weight
- Agility Hurdles
- Battle Ropes
- Bench Press
- Box Jump
- Medicine Ball
- Gatorade Reaction (Levels Badge as well)
Completing these exercises nets you a couple of interesting things. The first is that exercises fill your turbo (R) up to 100%. The second is that you can use the exercises in the G Training Facility to increase your stat caps. This is necessary in order to increase your MyPLAYER to level 99. So far I’ve found Hurdles and Gatorade Reaction to be the most beneficial in terms of time spent.
If you are not interested in working out, you can head to the the Gatorade Fuel Bar where you can use VC to buy consumables that give you increased Turbo. Consumables give certain buffs for a set period of time when used.
Team Practice Facility (Ability Cap + Badges)
If you aren’t trying to raise your skill level caps, you probably want to unlock badges on your character. This can be done in game, but also by attending the Team Practice facility. Here you can choose which badge you wish to work on and run drills catered towards improving that skill. Drills are limited to 3 per day.
Badges are passive abilities that give you an edge over just general skills. Having badges on your MyPLAYER is important as it can give you that edge needed to beat out other similarly levelled characters.
*Badges can also be worked on during games*
VC, VC, and More VC
Like previous games in the NBA 2K series, NBA 2K18 uses VC to level up your MyPLAYER attributes. It is through is through spending copious amounts of VC that you will end up reaching that coveted 99 rank. In NBA 2K18 there are a couple of ways to collect VC:
- Buy it: VC like everything else in life, can be purchased directly through 2K.
- Earn it: If buying VC doesn’t feel quite right, you can earn it. This can be done by playing in NBA games, playing on your MyCOURT, playing in the Pro AM league, playing pick up games in the neighborhood, and many other activities.
Get out there and start collecting VC so you can become the next Nate Archibald.
These are just a few of the ways to level up your MyPLAYER in NBA 2K18‘s MyCAREER mode. In terms of efficient grinding, it seems like playing multiplayer (Pro Am, Playground) is one of the best ways to earn VC. Good luck out there!
