Of course, which Badges and what levels of those Badges you end up using will all depend on your build and your play style. Additionally, because having layup timing on is actually worth doing this year as it significantly boosts your chances of finishing layups through contests, you'll really need to pick and choose what's worth the Badge points.

We've ranked the Finishing Badges in terms of their overall effectiveness and relevance in the current meta.

  1. Slithery Finisher
  2. Posterizer
  3. Limitless Takeoff
  4. Fearless Finisher
  5. Acrobat
  6. Post Spin Technician
  7. Pro Touch

  10. Dream Shake
  11. Giant Slayer
  12. Masher
  13. Bully

Ultimately, the Finishing category is still the most balanced out of the four Badge types, with all of these Badges really being viable depending on your playstyle. There aren't any straight-up duds here. It's hard to dismiss that for most, Slithery Finisher, Posterizer and Limitless Takeoff are the clear best options. For layup builds, Fearless Finisher, Giant Slayer and Acrobat could be more important. For post players, Post Spin Technician, Pro Touch, Fast Twitch, Rise Up and Dream Shake are your main go-to's.
