NBA 2K23 Badges – All New, Removed, And Changed Badges In This Year’s Game

NBA 2K23 is nearly here, and that means a fresh badge system is upon us. While we can’t yet provide our complete NBA 2K23 badge tier list–we need to play the game for that–we do already know the complete list of new badges, as well as which ones have been removed or combined into preexisting badges in this year’s game. NBA 2K23 introduces a drastically overhauled badge system, which splits the badges into tiers and allows for some additional badge slots for all players. The team at Visual Concepts has also consolidated or outright removed some badges based on telemetry data that helped pinpoint which badges were being used a lot and which ones weren’t really being used much at all.

In this NBA 2K23 badge guide, we’ll share the complete list of new badges, and note how some have changed as well as which will be absent when the game launches on September 8. In time, we’ll update this guide to reflect the complete list of badges and sort them into tiers to help you build your own virtual athlete.

From there, each tier gets more powerful and costly. Visual Concepts says the idea behind this new system “is that you’ll need to equip a certain number of badges in the lower tiers before you can equip badges in the highest.”
