How to Get Ankle Breaker Badge Quick and Easy

First, start off by playing a season game! You can not skip it and you have to play through it all! After you play a season game, click continue after the game, so you spawn at the central spawn area! If you spawn by the fountain, look behind you and go to the building where it will say training facility. Once you enter the training facility, click on the button to choose a badge to work on, and click ankle breaker. After you click ankle breaker, go down to gauntlep top or something close to that, as that is the easiest drill to do a double move to score. All you have to do from there is do 2 moves and score. The easiest way for me is to do 2 behind the backs, or my rythm up crossover and drive to the goal and layup. As long as you do 2 moves, and score, shooting a 3, mid range, or a layup, it will count towards ankle breaker!

How to Defend and Lockdown Your Man:

Guide about how to properly defend your man in NBA2K18 covering a variety of concepts.

  • Find your perfect "defending distance" for your opponent
  • Keep the distance
  • Stay in front
  • Track your opponent

Find your perfect "defending distance" for your opponent
Figure out what the guy your guarding is good at. Set your "defending distance" according to that. If he is a good shooter, stay close to him. If he is a good driver, stay further away to cover the drive. The better of a shooter he is, the closer you need to defend him. The worse a shooter he is, the further away you can stay from him and focus on covering the drive.

Keep the distance
Your opponent obviously moves around the court. You remember your "defending distance" you decided for? Keep that distance at all points. If your opponents attacks the hoop, back down. If he goes further away, close out the distance so your back at perfect "defending distance".

Stay in front
In addition to your distance, you need to stay in front of your opponent at all times. No matter how close or "not-close" you guard him, stay in front. The second your sideways or behind your opponent, he has a huge advantage and is likely to score. So always try to stay in front. Thats also, why you want to guard your guy as far away as his capabilities allow you to do.

Track your opponent
And finally, track him. Always keep the relative position to your opponent the same. If he moves to the left, you do, if he moves to the right, you do. Try to stay in front of him and defend at your "defending distance" at all times, and you've got your tracking down.

Infinite VC Glitch

Note: This glitch was performed on an unpatched version of the game. It is likely to eventually get patched.

  • Step 1: First off go to MyTeam and don't forget how much VC you got (ex: 1.000 VC)
  • Step 2: Go to MyGM/MyLeague and START a new MyLeague.
  • Step 3: Go to options / MyLeague Settings and put the Quarter minutes up to 12
  • Step 4: Go to options / Settings and put the difficulty on Hall of Fame (HoF)
  • Step 5: Simulate your first game with "Simulate with simcast live" only not with "Simulate with simcast"
  • Step 6: Wait until your team scores 2 points or 3 points.
  • Step 7: Go to "Quit" and then "Simulate to the End" (it doesn't matter if you win or lose you still get the VC)
  • Step 8: Go Back to MyTeam and watch the VC you gained.

WARNING: After doing this always change the minutes by -1 (ex: first time you used 12 now you use 11 minutes) do this method until 1 min per quarter. Then wait 10 minutes before doing the same method.
