Best shooting badges in NBA 2K23
The best shooting badges in NBA 2K23 are Agent 3, Limitless Range, Blinders, Claymore, Amped, and Guard Up respectively.
- Agent 3 (Tier 3)
- Limitless Range (Tier 3)
- Blinders (Tier 3)
- Claymore (Tier 1)
- Amped (Tier 2)
- Guard Up (Tier 1)
1. Agent 3 (Tier 3)
- Improves ability to make pull-up or spin shots from three-point range.
- Helps with fading to the left/right and dribbling.
2. Limitless Range (Tier 3)
- Extends the range from which a player can shoot three-pointers effectively from deep.
- It’s highly recommended that you use Limitless Range with Agent 3.
3. Blinders (Tier 3)
- Jump shots taken with a defender closing out in their peripheral vision will suffer a lower penalty.
- Blinders, along with Limitless Range and Agent 3, are S-tier badges.
4. Claymore (Tier 1)
- Increases your ability to knock down perimeter shots when spotting up patiently.
- An S-tier badge because as long as you can stay put and not move around, Claymore is activated.
5. Amped (Tier 2)
- Reduces the penalty that fatigue has on a player and their ability to make shots.
- If you’re not used to the adrenaline boost, Amped is going to work well for you.
6. Guard Up (Tier 1)
- Increases the ability to make jump shots when defenders fail to properly contest.
- Guard Up should be at least a tier 3 badge because of how good it is (Deadeye should be a tier 1 or 2 instead).
