NBA 2K16: How to Quickly Get a 99 Rating My Player in the Game (My Career Guide)

You’re probably wondering, if you’ve seen them already – how did all the players that you’re facing in MyPark manage to get to 99 overall rating so soon? Well, we’re here to share with you a quick guide on how to do it to ASAP if you have some free time on your hand: how to get 99 player rating in My Player in NBA 2K16 My Career mode. It’s easy, but unfortunately not so fun! But enough talking – let’s get this guide started.

The trick to getting your player maxed out soon is to grind on the off days that you get after each game and hit the Live Practice over and over again. It sounds like common sense? Well, if you have the time, you can do this and get a maxed out player in several hours, so here is exactly what you have to do:

1. Play every game with your player, but set the game speed to 100. I recommend you to play it on the easiest game mode, because you will focus on improving your player first.

2. Start the game and foul out as fast as possible. In other words, go for intentional fouls ASAP and you should be fouled out in the first or early second quarter. Then quickly skip through the game and the cutscenes, then hit advance to go to the main menu.

3. Now comes the important part: after every match, you will get a day off. Always use that to do the Live Practice. You don’t have to actually complete the practice either (if you do, you will get a temporary boost of skills, but you don’t need that as you’re fouling out of the games anyways) – so just start the practice and quit it – you will still get the bonus.

4. Repeat over and over again and in several hours (yup – told you it was going to be boring!) you’ll have a maxed out, 99 ratings MyPlayer in NBA 2K16.

Have in mind that you have to do this exactly as described above, minus the game speed 100 thing – but that helps for your sanity and going through everything faster. If you simply sim the game, you will LOSE the day off, so you won’t be able to take care of your player. Simply do as I told you and ignore everything else, turn your player into a star and then rule the court with your beast!

  1. you need badges anyway to become a good i think is better playing the matches or you will have to do it later

  2. This is not a glitch. Anyone who does 5 practice sessions is rewarded with one skill up point that you use on your attributes page. This article just explains how to do it quicker. You still need to play the games to get the badges and fouling out of every game won’t help you do that .

  3. I am not able to do the live practices on NBA 2K16 for XBox 360. For some reason I can not figure out how to make my player better without buying VC. Any help would be appreciated.

    1. These guys usually have tons of vc that they buy in bulk just to make a bunch of 99 ranked guys.. Doesn’t seem as fun to me

  4. If you’re farming badges, then play on rookie mode. If you’re farming purchase points, then play your games on hall of fame, or the hardest setting available. In rookie mode, you only get about 300-400 purchase points a game depending on your players contract. In hall of fame mode, you’ll get anywhere from 800 to a 1000.

  5. Any help with offline ratings boost would be appreciated can only go to an 88 ovr rating …..only get attribute upgrades every ten practices and can’t do anything or buy power ups
