You may have already read some of our guides, such as best Playmaking, Shooting, Defensive/Rebounding Badges, how to earn NBA 2K22 MT Coins, etc. Now, we will introduce the best Finishing Badges.
In NBA 2K22, the best finishing badges can make your player. Here are all the best finishing badges to equip for your MyPlayer to make you a constant threat.
1. Fearless Finisher
Fearless Finisher decreases the amount of energy lost on contact layups and increases the ability to finish.
Unless players are regularly using floaters, almost every layup in NBA 2K22 will be a contact layup. Increasing the ability to convert contact layups is a bonus to all layups. There’s a good chance that your shot will get blocked without the Fearless Finisher badge, so it’s best if you bring it up to the Hall of Fame level as you develop your game.
This badge also works when the contact draws a foul, increasing the opportunity for three-point players, which is an excellent perk for players who don’t spend much time beyond the arc.
The description for the Acrobat badge reads that it “boosts the ability to make layups that have a high degree of difficulty.” Layups that have a low degree of difficulty frankly don’t need badges, and the shot meter pretty much doesn’t even matter.
The acrobat helps with all of those contested layups. As previously stated, most layups for finishers will be examined. Of all the badges on this list, this one will be the most frequent one to pop up, helping out on most shots in the vicinity of the backboard.
3. Pro Touch
Pro Touch is an excellent badge for players to get a slight edge in layup attempts. As long as players can find the right timing on their layup package, this badge will help convert those layups—especially early into MyPlayer when trying to earn Finishing Badge points.
4. Giant Slayer
Giant Slayer is another virtual badge that could you in scoring layups, especially when the rim is heavily guarded with tall opponent players.
This badge is a must-have for short players, and the combination with Pro Touch could give you a significant boost in scoring layups.
5. Backdown Punisher
The Backdown Punisher is back for NBA 2K22 current-gen and next-gen and allows players to succeed more than average when backing down a defender in the paint.
Backing down an opponent is a simple strength and stamina check. If a more robust player has stamina against a weaker player, they will push toward the rim while backing down. With four points into the Backdown Punisher badge, a maximum-strength player cannot be denied from a trip to the edge regardless of who defends them. This guarantees a dunk at the end unless an opponent gives up their coverage to help out.
6. Grace Under Pressure
Grace Under Pressure is an excellent choice for more prominent characters. It increases the ability to convert standing layups. This is a new badge for 2k22 and should be worked up to the Hall of Fame level.
7. Limitless Takeoff
Limitless Takeoff is a new badge for NBA 2K22 and improves your player’s ability to soar from further away on dunk attempts.
Most centers have a tough time coming in to stop a slasher already, and this badge gives them no chance to help out once the player gets past their defender.
A Gold badge is good enough, but you may as well take it up another level to the Hall of Fame. You will thank the badge if you upgrade it by that extra tier.
Now that you know all of the best finishing badges in NBA 2K22, you can go and dominate in the paint and score some crucial points for your team. Of course, you can also click here to see more of our badge guides.
