As has been the case for quite some time, MyTeam is one of the core game modes in 2K’s NBA series, allowing players to build out their own team featuring current and former NBA players. Of course, it has its own currency. Here’s how to earn MyTeam Tokens and what they’re for in NBA 2K21.
What Tokens are For
Along with VC, Tokens are another NBA 2K21 currency, which is completely specific to the MyTeam mode. They are earned and then used in exchange for player cards from the Pack Market tab.
All cards within the market are ordered by rarity: Emerald, Sapphire, Ruby, Amethyst, Diamond, Pink Diamond, and finally, Galaxy Opal.
Initially, you’ll only be able to redeem Tokens for Emerald cards, but once you get 10 Emerald cards from this menu, you’ll then have access to Sapphire. Collect 10 Sapphire cards to unlock the selection of Ruby cards, and so on and so forth.
In fact, some rarity tiers actually have different amounts of the previous tier required to unlock. You’ll need 12 Ruby to unlock the Amethyst selection, 12 Amethyst to unlock Diamond, 10 Diamond to unlock Pink Diamond, and 8 Pink Diamond to unlock Galaxy Opal.
How to Get Tokens in NBA 2K21
Tokens are given to you as a reward in almost every single MyTeam game mode, including Triple Threat (3 on 3 matches vs CPU or online), Domination (5 on 5 matches vs CPU), Challenges (matches with stipulations vs CPU), and MyTeam Limited (5 on 5 vs CPU with lineup restrictions).
Earning more is just a case of playing MyTeam’s various modes and playing well along the way.
That should be everything you need to know about how to earn MyTeam Tokens and what they’re for in NBA 2K21. For more useful information on the game, be sure to check out Twinfinite’s guide wiki.
