Completing Ronnie 2K’s Rebirth Side Quest is crucial to enabling your player to go shirtless. And while players do not have to complete the quest in its entirety to unlock this option, they’ll have to get pretty close. Here’s a simple step-by-step:

  1. Find Ronnie 2K’s first location.

    Upon completing the Summer League championship, Rebirth becomes available. His first location can be found at the custom waypoint below.

  2. Reach 88 overall.

  3. Find Ronnie 2K’s third location.

    At 88 overall, players must speak to Ronnie, who will then give players the ability to go shirtless during blacktop games. You can spot him near the North Side Knights spawn location near the accompanying Subway station.

The 88 overall objective is actually the third step in the Rebirth quest, with stops along the way at 65 and 75. However, it’s getting to that third marker that makes the difference with regards to playing shirtless.
