Whether you need to drain threes or just break some ankles, one NBA 2K22 TikToker has found some of the best badges for a stellar guard build.

The latest 2K Games basketball title, NBA 2K22, offers a ton of great ways to experience the classic franchise.

Players can challenge others with their custom-built characters in MyCareer or take to building a dynasty in MyTeam.

For those headed down the MyCareer route, one TikTok user has a Guard build that looks to be well worth checking out, showing off some incredible handling and shooting potential in a viral video.

NBA 2K22 is all about mastering the jump shot, just as this player shows us.

In a TikTok posted by user realgrindingdf, the customized MyPlayer is shown hitting some seriously deep threes and cutting the opposing defender up with some slick dribble moves.


The video sits at over an impressive 48,000 likes and has over 700 comments, at the time of writing, putting plenty of people on notice about this insane build.

While the video is taken on a current-gen console, this is one that all players will need to keep their eyes on moving forward, showing shades of a demi-god on the court.
