Here are some NBA 2K22 Shooting Badges that we believe you should have:



This is already a favorite among plenty of NBA 2K22 players and ended up on our Best NBA 2K22 Shooting Badges list. Blinders allow shooters to receive a lower penalty when they take shots as a defender closes out toward them, blocking their vision.

Corner Specialist:

This is an incredible shooting badge for Power Forwards. The corner three is a tough shot to make, but even tougher to guard off of a screen. A power forward that can shoot from beyond the arc? Sign us up!

Hot Zone Hunter:

You don't have to just be a great shooter from beyond the three-point line. You can have an incredible mid-range game by leveling up the Hot Zone Hunter NBA 2K22 Badge and find where your hot zones are. This way you'll get a boost when you shoot from these locations.
