BEST BADGES: Start using these Badges on your MyPLAYER ASAP

Let's take a look at the best NBA 2K22 Shooting Badges that you need to equip for your MyPLAYER as soon as possible.



Our favorite among all of the NBA 2K22 Shooting Badges is Sniper, the Shooting Badge is described as followed:

"Sniper allows jump shots taken with slight early/late timing to receive a boost, while early or late shots will receive a bigger penalty." This is a great Shooting Badge for beginning and experienced players.

SPOT UP: Use the Sniper Badge to nail shots from beyond the arc

This is also one of the few NBA 2K22 Shooting Badges that don't have to be all the way leveled up to a Hall of Fame Badge to be effective.

You can have Sniper at Bronze or level it all the way up to Hall of Fame. Each badge level is about a 3-5% increase in make.


Mismatch Expert

Mismatch Expert is great for players that are using the Playmaking Shot Creator build. Considering this is a smaller build the Mismatch Expert will help you shoot over larger defenders.

This Badge works perfectly off of a screen and is described here: "After forcing the switch, a player with Mismatch badge will have more success when shooting over the taller defender."

We want to make sure that we say your MyPLAYER needs to be under 6'4" in order to use this Shooting Badge. You'll be sacrificing some height, but in return, you get incredible shooting.


Blinders is the Shooting Badge that received a ton of attention during the early NBA 2K22 update. Apparently, it performed too well and was nerfed nearly immediately.

Even with the nerf, Blinders is still a fantastic Shooting Badge to have on your MyPLAYER. We have the details below on the Badge before and after the nerf.

You can see that you'll still receive a ton of value from having the Blinders Badge equipped on your MyPLAYER.
