Are you looking to apply all NBA 2K22's shooting badges? Here's our breakdown of the Sniper Badge in NBA 2K22.

Badges in NBA 2K22 are essentially bonuses applied to certain players that give a specific effect to their performance on the court. Each badge is sorted into its own category—shooting, defense, etc.—which corresponds to a specific aspect of gameplay. Below, we've revealed how players can find them and what the Sniper Badge, specifically, does.

NBA 2K22 Sniper Badge Explained

Badges are less found and more unlocked via repetitive play and practice to earn badge points in a certain skill. The more points earned, the more badges can be unlocked in that skill. Players can unlock a single badge in a skill once they've earned enough points. In essence: earn the points, spend them on badges. However, players have a limit of how many badge points they can spend on a character, and some badges require an extra criteria to be met—e.g. attribute threshold.

What does the Sniper Badge do?

The Sniper Badge can be found under the "Shooting" skill and, therefore, affects how the player will shoot the ball. It is noted to be a mid-range shot booster and costs 53 badge points. It provides a noticeable boost to "well-aimed" shots—or, jump shots taken while the player uses the aiming joystick correctly. So long as you're paying attention, you shouldn't have an issue banking shots that are a little too early or too late.

It also allows players to make more contested shots thanks to the bonus to aiming in general.

There are close to 80 badges to unlock in total with 20 in the shooting category, alone.
