MyCareer is one of the most popular modes in NBA 2K games these days, and sometimes it can provide a real challenge. If that challenge is a bit too tough, you can adjust it. Here’s how to change MyCareer difficulty in NBA 2K22.

How to Change MyCareer Difficulty in NBA 2K22

Skipping to the NBA

First of all, you’ll need to be in the NBA to access the option to change the difficulty in MyCareer mode. The fastest way to get to the NBA is to complete the very first quest given to you as soon as you enter MyCareer.

Speak to your friend again after the intro cutscene and he’ll send you to speak with two other main characters from previous NBA 2K MyCareer modes, AI and Che. One will speak to you about joining the G League, and the other will suggest NCAA basketball in college.

They’re found at the two quest locations below — one near the Kobe icon, and the other near the team practice facility.

Return to your friend in the apartment after speaking to them both, and instead of choosing the G League or college, tell him that you want to declare for the NBA Draft.

It should be noted that you’ll miss out on bonus training time, VC, and other rewards if you decide to skip the G League and college NCAA experiences. But this is the fastest way to get to the NBA.

Changing the Difficulty

Once you’ve made it to the NBA, open the MyCareer menu and go to the Options/Quit tab, then select Settings. From there, you can adjust the difficulty and choose one that works best for you.

That’s everything you need to know about how to change the MyCareer difficulty in NBA 2K22. Be sure to check out our guide wiki for more tips, tricks, and info on the game.
