Best NBA 2K23 Shooting badges ranked

The best badges that one can equip players with within NBA 2K23 are as follows:

#1 Limitless Range

This badge grants the highest chance of scoring a point in the game. If you can shoot better from the deep, you already have an upper hand on the opponent.

It is a must-have badge in all sharpshooter builds or any type of build that involves taking long-range shots. You might also consider changing your shot meter for accessibility.

#2 Catch & Shoot

This badge will help increase your green windows, exactly what a shooter wants. However, for this badge to activate, you must shoot the ball as soon as you get it. Make sure to equip is badge in all of your three-pointer builds.

#3 Deadeye

This badge boosts your shot meter to hit shots in front of defenders. This activates when you have a defender closing in on you.

This allows your shooter to lean a bit into the playmaking domain as you can finesse the most skilled defenders with this badge.

#4 Corner Specialist

This is yet another exceptional badge that boosts your shot for a good chance of getting a green if you’re in the corner. This helps you get a perfect release.

Note that if you are building a 3PT build, equip this badge.

#5 Claymore

This badge enhances the shooting abilities of a player that stays still. It triggers if you stand still for at least two seconds and then provides an exceptional boost for spot-ups on the 3-pointer line.

#6 Green Machine

This badge will help you nail the greens in NBA 2k23. This comes in really handy because shooting is heavily reliant on hitting your greens.

This badge can really help out new players who struggle with hitting their greens. However, experienced players might find some use in this badge too as hitting the green window is sometimes hard for good players too in an intense match.

#7 Blinders

This boosts your shooting if defenders are closing in on you from sideways. This helps you shoot prior to being caught by the defender. Hence, it’s a decent badge that involves shooting.

#8 Space Creator

This badge can stumble the players at the back, defending. The ability to make hop shots or step-backs is highly enhanced using this badge. If you like to size up when it comes to guards, this is your go-to badge.

#9 Agent 3

Hitting the shots off the dribble is an art, making it important to know how to dribble. This badge will ensure that you score most of the points! It gives the boost in hitting the 3PT shots.

#10 Amped

Players make lots of fouls when are tired. This badge prevents them from making false moves.

#11 Volume Shooter

This badge is for those who are after a maximum of three-pointers. This badge caps out pretty quickly therefore it’s not recommended to invest beyond silver in it.

#12 Middy Magician

It grants you the ability to knock the center-oriented jumpers down. Not the best badge available out there but if you need to burn extra badge points, it’s a good pick.

#13 Clutch Shooter

This badge comes into effect in the fourth quarter of the match so, only go for it if you have spare badge points.

#14 Comeback Kid

This is one of the cheapest badges. It can give you 1 or 2 points whenever you feel down or are about to lose the game.

#15 Guard Up

This could have been a better badge but the fact that this activates only if defenders don’t put up their hands on defense makes it a C-tier badge.

#16 Slippery Off-Ball

When attempting to get open off screens, this badge helps the player more effectively navigate through the crowd.

How to get Shooting badges in NBA 2K23

NBA 2K23 is all about making three-pointers, with less emphasis on typical dribbling. This trend reshapes the gameplay strategy, which is where the Shooting Badges come in.

Most Shooting Badges in NBA 2K23 help you score three-pointers and attack the opponent aggressively.

Shooting badges can be obtained through the MyCareer option. There, various badges are available based on your build. One thing to keep in mind is that the physical attributes of your MyPlayer will determine which tier-specific Badges are available to you.
