NBA 2K22 likely to bring back Locker Codes

While it's not yet been confirmed, we can very likely count on 2K Sports bringing back the Locker Codes mechanic for NBA 2K22.

With the release and continued lifespan of NBA 2K21, Locker Codes became a constant opportunity for freebies that fans could always keep an eye on.

SUPER PACKS: These codes usually dropped near the end of each season

With an average of at least one locker code per week, and usually more than that, it's no shock that fans love to punch them in and redeem free rewards.

We don't expect much to change about locker codes when NBA 2K22 is released, but there are a few ways they could make the feature even better.

Hidden & Secret Locker Codes must return

Hidden and secret locker codes are severely underutilized, and this is something we saw mobilize fans during the Glitched Reality season for NBA 2K21.

GLITCHED REALITY: This season sent fans on the hunt for locker codes

The community banded together to decode secret hints and messages, find locker codes buried in images, and more, meaning this is a style of locker code drop that NBA 2K22 needs to capitalize on.

Locker Codes should also affect Neighborhood, Park, City, and more

Exactly how they choose to do this is relatively open, but Locker Codes have been relatively limited to MyTEAM in NBA 2K21.

If NBA 2K22 can find a balance, they could see a lot of success by introducing more locker codes that have the potential to benefit players as they cruise between multiple game modes.


Always Current & Active, Never Expires

While most locker codes are temporary and often expire after as little as one week, there tend to be a few that last long term.

Once NBA 2K22 is ready to ship, we'll collect any permanently active locker codes here for players to punch into MyTEAM and redeem.

How to Enter Locker Codes in NBA 2K22

While we don't yet know the exact nuanced process for NBA 2K22 when it comes to entering and using locker codes, we expect it'll be the same or very similar to NBA 2K21.

DARK MATTER: One of the locker codes released for NBA 2K21

In the past, they were redeemed in-game using the following steps:

  • Enter MyTEAM
  • Scroll to the 'Settings' - located on the far right hand side
  • Select 'Locker Codes'

While past locker codes were not case sensitive, you did have to include any hyphens while using the code.

With locker codes being such a staple of MyTEAM for the past few years, it looks like that's not going to change with MyTEAM in NBA 2K22.
