NBA 2k17 Badge Guide - How to earn all badges in NBA 2k17

This year skill badges are divided into 5 tiers: Bronze, Silver, Gold, Hall of Fame and Grand Badges. You’ll earn the bronze tier first after you unlock the badge, which then can be upgraded to silver and gold using VC. Personality badges only have 1 tier and cannot be upgraded.

Hall of Fame Badges are an upgraded and better version of the Gold Badges. You cannot upgrade Gold badges to Hall of Fame badges using VC. You have to meet certain requirements to earn them. To unlock HOF badges, you must upgrade the badge to Gold and do the same thing you did to unlock the badge, but 4x the amount. For example, to unlock ‘Catch & Shoot’ badge you need 100 shot attempts after catching the ball. To get the Hall of Game version you need at least 400.)

Grand Badges are an upgrade to the Hall of Fame versions. It’s a badge you unlock once you master your specific Archetype skill sets. This is a temporary badge that activates if you do a specific action in a game. You fill up your meter by getting assists if you’re a Playmaker or by making shots if you’re a Sharpshooter etc. Once you fully fill the meter, you will get a temporary attribute boost.
