A staple of NBA 2K22 MyCareer, the type of build players make will allow them to select a number of different Takeover abilities that can break games wide open once they've built up enough momentum.

For those looking to ensure that their MyPlayer is able to live up to the moment when the lights are at their brightest, here is a tier list of the 24 Takeovers in NBA 2K22 MyCareer on Next Gen.

NBA 2K22 Takeover Tier List: Next Gen

S Tier

  • Negative Impact
  • Anklebreaking Shots
  • Pull-Up Precision
  • Extreme Clamps
  • Spot-Up Precision
  • Advanced Gathers
  • Paint Intimidation
  • Enhanced Jumpshot Contests
  • Advanced Post Moves

In S Tier are nine options that will allow your MyPlayer to take over the ball game with ease depending on your playstyle and build. At the top of the category, a lot of the shot creating Takeovers receive higher priority due to the way the shooting has been changed this year. With standstill jumpers being easier to make, the value of the shot creating takes have gone up.

A Tier

  • See the Future
  • Finishing Moves
  • Stuff Blocks
  • Power Backdowns
  • Team Ratings Boost

In A Tier are five more Takeovers that are heavily effective, but may require more skill and game planning in order to get the most out of equipping them. They aren't as straightforward to equate to winning plays as the options above.

B Tier

  • Limitless Range
  • Easy Blowbys
  • Perimeter Badge Drop
  • Interior Badge Drop
  • Team Badge Boost
  • Post Shot Daggers

In B Tier are six options that aren't bad, but at the same time aren't as powerful as the offerings above them.

C Tier

  • Glass Clearing Dimes
  • Post Playmaking
  • Boxout Wall
  • Team Takeover Boost

Lastly, in C Tier are four Takeovers that just aren't worth spending a slot on due to how effective the rest of the field is. For more on NBA 2K22 MyCareer, feel free to check out our guides on the best Shooting, Playmaking, Defense/Rebounding and Finishing Badges to use.
