NBA 2K18 Neighborhood Guide – Everything to Know

Misc Things

There are a collection of random miscellaneous things located in the Neighborhood. This segment of the guide will be devoted to those aspects. Some of the things I currently don’t understands what they do, but I will update this guide when i do.

Newspaper Stand (Main Street News)

NBA 2K18 Newspaper Stand

Where is it?: The very far end of the street with Foot Locker on it.

What is it?: The Main Street News stand is where you can purchase Skill Boosts for your MyPLAYER. Swing on by here when you are looking to get a slight edge on the court.

Note: Beside Main Street News you will find the PRO AM walk on courts. 

The Playground

NBA 2K18 The Playground

Where is it?: Follow the street past the Main Street News stand and you will reach The Playground.

What is it?: This is where you come if you want to play some pickup ball.

Juice Cart

NBA 2K18 Juice Cart

Where is it?: Located outside your Practice Facility

What is it?: Head to the Juice Cart after practicing to replenish one practice point (means you can train an extra badge a day).

Subway Stations

Where are they?: There are two fast travel points in The Neighborhood. One is located beside the Practice Facility; the other is located at The Playground.

What are they?: Allow you to fast travel between The Practice Facility and The Playground.

That wraps up our brief NBA 2K18 neighborhood guide. As you can see, the new area for NBA 2K18 features a number of activities for players to take part in. Hopefully it helps you navigate the new social area in NBA 2K18 a little bit better. Get out there and start hooping!

  17. sundoobie says:

    Thank you for this guide. I got dizzy running around the neighborhood trying to find mycourt to change my shirt objective. Can’t believe they didn’t include a navigation or map and just expect us to know where everything is. Mycareer mode’s neighborhood is trash in 2k18. What a waste of time running around and around. This is a basketball game yet they are pushing it to be an RPG.

      The Recording Studio is located in the alley on the right of the Foot Locker. Look for a door in the alley which leads to the Recording Studio. Guide has been update!

    I had no idea that NBA2k has been making such a push to provide so many other things to do in the game… that and encourage microtransactions.
