Upgrading Your Player in NBA 2K18
Upgrading your player is important if you want to do well on the court in NBA 2K18. This time around, 2K has given players a few more options and avenues to explore when it comes to improving your skills, so you’re not just limited to spending VC on increasing your stats and attributes.
The first, and most traditional, way of upgrading your character is by spending VC. This in-game currency can be obtained either by purchasing them with real money, or by completing games. To use your VC, press the triangle button to bring up your navigation menu, select the gold Attributes option in the middle of the menu, and then press up on the d-pad to access your attributes. From here, use the d-pad to select the attributes you want to increase, and then confirm to spend the VC for the upgrades.
Alternatively, you can also make use of the training facility to rank up your badges. In between each game, you’ll have an allowance for three drills, which can be used to increase your progress for a certain badge and up your OVR rating. There are badges for different skills like rebounds, screening, and three-point shots, so choose wisely.
If you’re just looking to up your game in the next match, you can also go to the Gatorade fueling center to purchase some one-time use food items. These will be automatically consumed for your next game, but they can be helpful in giving you an edge. However, do note that you need VC to purchase these, as well.
