All Playmaking Badges

This article is a list of all the playmaking badges available in NBA 2K22. Here is a comprehensive list:


  • ANKLE BREAKER – Improves the likelihood of freezing or dropping a defender during dribble moves. When performing stepbacks and other certain moves, the defender stumbles or falls more frequently when biting the wrong way.


  • BAIL OUT – Increases the chances of successfully completing a pass from mid-air. Passing out of a jump shot or layup yields fewer errant passes than normal.


  • BREAK STARTER – Improves a player’s ability to make effective outlet passes after grabbing a rebound. After grabbing a defensive board, deep outlet passes made up the court are more accurate. Passes must be made quickly following the defensive rebound.


  • BULLET PASSER – Improves a player’s ability to quickly pass the ball. Speeds up how quickly a player gets the ball out of their hands as well as the velocity of the pass.


  • DIMER – Boosts the shot percentage for open teammates on jump shots after catching a pass. When in the half-court, passes by Dimers to open shooters yield a shot percentage boost.


  • DOWNHILL – Increases overall speed with the ball in transition. Gives a bonus to a player’s Speed With Ball attribute in fastbreak situations.


  • FLOOR GENERAL – Teammates receive an offensive attribute bonus when a player is in the game. Gives offensive attribute boosts to teammates when on the floor. Also, at the Hall of Fame level, can see teammates` potential shot percentages while on offense.


  • GLUE HANDS – Ability to make difficult catches and quicker branch out to a shot or dribble.


  • HANDLES FOR DAYS – Reduces the amount of energy lost when performing dribble moves. A player takes less of an energy hit when performing consecutive dribble moves, allowing them to chain together combos quicker for longer periods of time.


  • HYPERDRIVE – Boosts the speed and effectiveness of moving dribble moves.


  • NEEDLE THREADER – Increases the likelihood that tough passes can get by the defense. When passing through a tight window between defenders, a boost is given to the player’s passing ability.


  • POST PLAYMAKER – Boosts the effectiveness of both shots and moves when playing in the post.


  • QUICK CHAIN – Boosts the ability to quickly chain dribble moves together.


  • QUICK FIRST STEP – Provides more explosive first steps out of triple threat and size-ups. When driving out of triple threat or after a size-up, ball handlers have access to quicker and more effective launches.


  • SPACE CREATOR – Improves a player’s ability to create space from a defender. When performing any stepback move or shot, there’s a higher chance of successfully creating separation from the opponent.


  • SPECIAL DELIVERY – Gives a boost to passer and receiver’s takeover meter following a flashy pass if the shot goes in. Takeover boost for both the passer and receiver after a flashy assist. Additionally, this badge increases alley-oop throw success and shot chance for receivers after a flashy pass.


  • STOP & GO – Improves a player’s ability to start and stop with the ball. Allows for the ball handler to start and stop quickly with unique stops and launches exclusive to this badge.


  • TIGHT HANDLES – Improves a player’s ability to break down their defender. Increases a player’s ball-handling ability in size-up situations, making it easier to break down the on-ball defender.


  • TRIPLE THREAT JUKE – Increases the effectiveness of triple threat fakes, jabs, and go moves.


  • UNPLUCKABLE – Reduces the chances of getting stripped by the defender. When performing dribble moves, defenders have a tougher time poking the ball free with their steal attempts.
