In addition to adding new Takeovers and tiers, NBA 2K next-gen players will also be able to change these abilities after the character’s creation. However, it won’t be all that easy to do this come November. To change Takeovers, you will need to unlock a certain Badge. And let’s just say it’s going to be a grind.
How to change Takeover abilities
To honor the late Kobe Bryant, who’s on the cover of the Mamba Forever Edition, the NBA 2K21 devs added a new Badge to this year’s game, entitled Mamba Mentality. To unlock this Badge, you must have earned all of your character’s Badge points. Once you’ve acquired all of those Badge points and unlocked Mamba Mentality, you will have the ability to change your character’s Takeovers.
It’s going to take quite a bit of time to accomplish this, but this change does give players the ability to mess around with different Takeovers. Plus, the method to unlock this ability is relatively straight-forward.
