NBA 2K24: Best Playmaking badges ranked

2K Games removed three Playmaking badges (Clamp Breaker, Quick First Step, and Floor General) and, in their place, added five new ones, bringing the total to 13 Playmaking badges in NBA 2K24.

Check out which NBA 2K24 badges are the best in the game with our ranked list:


  • Break Starter
  • Handles for Days
  • Relay Passer (NEW)
  • Speed Booster (NEW)

The removal of the Clamp Breaker and Quick First Step badges has brought Handles for Days into the spotlight in MyPLAYER builds. Of course, it will depend on your position on the court, as this badge will help you conserve less energy after performing consecutive ball-handling moves such as crossovers, fake passes, and more.
