Similar to past games in the annual basketball title, Virtual Currency (VC), which can be earned in-game or bought with real money, is an essential currency used across the game modes of NBA 2K18. VC is used for purchasing apparel, getting a new haircut in MyCareer, upgrading the stats of your player, purchasing MyTeam packs, and more. So, how do you earn VC fast in NBA 2K18?
Firstly, you can earn up to 600 VC daily with the MyNBA 2K18 mobile app. You can get 500 VC daily from matches in quick game, with each match rewarding you with 50 VC regardless of the match results. Additionally, there’s a daily login bonus that rewards you with 100 VC. Aside from being a VC churning application, the MyNBA 2K18 mobile app is used for scanning your face for your custom character in MyCareer, so it’s definitely worth downloading.
Another way to earn VC is by completing matches in MyCareer. You’ll earn a certain amount of VC depending on your player performance; however, there are no more VC multipliers for completing a match on a higher difficulty setting. Basically, you’ll earn around 700 to 1500 VC per match.
The weekly in-game NBA 2KTV interactive episodes are also a great way to earn money. Simply answer a few questions to earn around 500 VC as well as various rewards, such as cards for MyTeam. Aside from getting in-game rewards, you’ll learn a few tidbits on certain ballers and a few insights on how developer Visual Concepts created NBA 2K18.
You can also earn money with little to no effort by simulating matches in NBA 2K18. Go to MyLeague and simulate matches in real time with Simcast. You can fast forward the simulation speed so matches will end quicker. At the end of the match, you’ll receive a hefty amount of VC.
If you happen to be near the 2K Zone while exploring The Neighborhood, it’s worth visting the area to earn a teeny bit of money. If you’re knowledgeable about basketball (or you’re just really good with using Google), you can earn 25 VC for each trivia you answer. There’s also a machine where you can bet on three match ups, and you’ll earn 25 VC for each correct pick.
If you still don’t have enough money, you can consider the various cross-promotions with NBA 2K18. From now until October 31, purchasing two cans of Mountain Dew at Walmart and sending a receipt of purchase rewards you with a Locker Code that contains 5,000 VC. Certain marked Reese’s Puffs products also come with an NBA 2K18 Locker Code that contains 2,500 VC.
