NBA 2K22: Best Guard Builds For Your MyCAREER After Update 1.08

NBA 2K22 is constantly evolving and part of this evolution includes better builds being available in MyCAREER, especially after the recent update.

The guard position is one of, if not the toughest positions to guard in the game, and if you're here it means you're looking to build one.

Let's go over our top three guard builds in NBA 2K22 right now.

NBA 2K22 Best Guard Builds

It's never been a better time to build a guard in MyCAREER in NBA 2K22. With so many incredible Shooting Badges, certain guard builds are nearly unstoppable on the court.

So, how can you go about building this unstoppable MyPLAYER? It's actually not too complicated if you know which build you're looking to go after. Lucky for you, we have the top three.

Let's get started with our first one, the Playmaking Shot Creator or "Playshot".

Playmaking Shot Creator Build

If you were to take a poll on NBA 2K22 player's favorite builds for guards, the Playmaking Shot Creator would win with ease. Mainly because it's nearly unguardable without the right defender.

It's become even more lethal now after the Update 1.08 nerf has been reversed. Playshots can now go back to using their impressive speed in side to side dribbles to get their opponent off balance.

Here's how you'll get started with the Playmaking Shot Creator build in NBA 2K22:

  • Position: Point Guard / Shooting Guard
  • Height : 6'0"
  • Weight: 178 LBS
  • Wingspan: 73" (For 98 OVR Three-Point Shot)
  • Attributes:
    • Mid-Range (MAX), Three-Point (MAX), Ball Handle (91), Speed With Ball (92)
    • Perimeter Defense (95), Steal (MAX)
    • Speed (90), Acceleration (90), Stamina (MAX)

From there all you'll need to do is make sure to select these key NBA 2K22 Takeovers:

  • Spot-Up Precision (Primary)
  • Anklebreaking Shots (Secondary)

There you have it, the current NBA 2K22 Playmaking Shot Creator Build taking over MyCAREER.

2-Way Playmaker

Maybe you aren't super focused on having the same build that everyone else is running in NBA 2K22 and you want something a little different. Perhaps you'd enjoy a larger guard that can defend.

The 2-Way Playmaker reminds us of players such as Zach Lavine, guys that can play defense, but are known for always putting on a show. We'll focus this build around current gen after Update 1.08.

GAME TIME: Use the 2-Way Playmaker build to have a versatile MyPLAYER

Here's how you can build the 2-Way Playmaker in NBA 2K22:

  • Position: Shooting Guard
  • Current Gen Pie Chart (Yellow/Red)
  • Height: 6'5"
  • Weight: 178LBS
  • Wingspan: 85.1"
  • Attributes:
    • Steal (97), Perimeter Defense (91)
    • Driving Dunk (85), Close Shot (87)
    • Lateral Speed (91), Defensive Rebound (82)

This is the Takeover you should use with this build in NBA 2K22:

  • Playmaker (Better ball-handling skills and enhance teammate's shots off of assists.)

There it is, a potential solution on defense for MyPLAYER builds to guard the Playmaking Shot Creator, while still being able to score efficiently.

2-Way Finisher

So for this NBA 2K22 build, you'll be looking more at a player such as John Wall or De'Aaron Fox. Guys that aren't great shooters, but are incredible inside and can drive the lane.

They're also great on defense, making this another build that you can use against the Playmaking Shot Creator on next gen or current gen systems, but make sure you've downloaded Update 1.08.
