WWE 2K Battlegrounds Best Power Ups

The Power-Up feature in WWE Battlegrounds grants your wrestler some very useful buffs and bonuses that they can activate during a match to make themselves more powerful.

These buffs can range from a damage boost to health regeneration, to irreversible attacks etc.

This feature adds a new element of strategy to the game. You can use different Power-Ups in different matches to execute unique strategies that work best against your opponents.

How to Unlock and Use Power-Ups

Every single Power-Up available in the game can be unlocked by simply playing through the game’s campaign.

There are 18 total Power-Ups currently available in the game, and they’re divided into three tiers. The actual power of these Power-Ups scales with the tier.

After you unlock a Power-Up, you can equip it in the Superstar Selection Screen that shows up right before a match starts.

Each Superstar can be given 3 Power-Ups, but you can only choose one Power-Up per tier.

After you equip your desired Power-Ups and the match starts, look at the bottom of the screen and you’ll see a Power-Up Bar, which will show you the icons of your chosen Power-Ups.

Now, if you want to use a Power-Up, you’ll have to wait until the Power-Up Bar reaches the activation zone.

The higher the tier of the Power-Up, the longer it’ll take to reach the activation zone.

Once the Power-Up Bar reaches the activation zone, you can use your D-Pad to trigger the Power-Up.

  • For a Tier 1 Power-Up, press Left on your D-Pad.
  • For a Tier 2 Power-Up, press Up on your D-Pad.
