On March 3, four new wrestlers were added to WWE 2K Battlegrounds: Maryse, the Big Boss Man, the British Bulldog, and WWE Hall of Famer Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat. Maryse and the Big Boss Man do not need to be unlocked, as the two of them will be available as soon as you boot up the game. Steamboat, a former NWA World Heavyweight Champion, will need to be unlocked, and here’s how you do just that.
To unlock Ricky Steamboat in WWE 2K Battlegrounds, players will need to select the Superstars tab, found on the upper-right hand side of the Main Menu. From there, you’ll need to scroll through the list of locked and unlocked wrestlers until you find the hardcore wrestler himself.
WWE 2K Battlegrounds players will need 9,000 Bucks or 225 Golden Bucks to unlock Ricky Steamboat. The amount of the bucks required to unlock Steamboat might seem like a lot, but it really shouldn’t be. As long as you get your matches in and complete some Daily Challenges, you should be just fine.
Two alternate attires for Ricky Steamboat are also available. 2K Battlegrounds players can purchase that attire for either 4,000 Bucks or 100 Golden Bucks, but keep in mind that ‘The Dragon” will need to be unlocked before you can buy the outfit.
