With the release of NBA 2K24, the REP system from previous games also makes a return. While life-long NBA 2K fans might be familiar with it, we are here to explain how the NBA 2K24 REP system works for new fans as well as provide a refresher to the old ones. Since the REP system has a direct tie-in with the MyPlayer build mechanic, understanding the system can benefit you a lot when it comes to progression.
What is the NBA 2K24 REP system
The REP system is an old feature of the NBA franchise that is being incorporated again in the NBA 2K24 game. Having a know-how on how this system works is necessary to utilize it for your benefit in the game.
REP is a kind of player reputation progress that can help earn different rewards including gear, clothes, and accessories, and can also be used to provide a boost to the player’s stats as well.
The REP points are further divided into MyREP and Affiliation REP. The points under the MyREP represent the total REP points earned in the whole game while the Affiliation REP points are those that are earned only by linking the player to one of the two available affiliations; the Elite and Rise.
Every player in 2K24 starts off with the Rookie rank in the REP system. With the progression in the game, the player will follow up different levels to reach the Top 10 which is the highest level in the REP system. Following is the list of all the tiers along with their levels and the rewards you gain for reaching that REP level
- Rookie 1
- Rookie 2 – gain 5x Gatorade Boost and 10x Skill Boost for each skill
- Rookie 3 – Unlock new badge-improving drills

How to increase REP fast in NBA 2K24
Here are some of the ways that can help you gain REP points quickly in 2K24 so you can rise up the ladder and claim rewards
Challenges are one of the most reliable sources for getting a good amount of REP points in the game. However, the points earned can vary depending on the complexity of the challenge. Some of them are just walks in the park but this criterion does not stand for all of them.
Playing with friends
While teaming up for the game, you must try to involve some friends with high REP in the squad. This will help you increase your REP faster by winning the games.
Play on a higher difficulty
Playing the game at higher difficulty levels also helps you gain REP points faster. You can increase the difficulty level of the game by going to MyCareer. Additionally, you can also set the Trae Difficulty challenging in MyGM settings as well.
Join RISE or ELITE Affiliation
Another way to improve and gain the REP points is by joining one of the two affiliations. Make sure to check out your surroundings before getting linked to one of these affiliations so you can have maximum friends to interact and play with. Each affiliation has its own bonuses and the REP resets if you change your affiliation later. So make sure you know the benefits of each affiliation before signing up.
