Best Finishing Badges in NBA 2K22

5. Putback Boss
Increases shot percentage when attempting a putback after an offensive rebound.

Now, this is a great badge in NBA 2K22 that works perfectly, but in order to use the most out of this badge, you should make your player build in a way that allows you to increase your Offensive Rebound to a high degree.

4. Fearless Finisher
Improves the ability to convert contact layups.

Contact dunks and contact layups are not easy to score. Aside from the fact that you will need strong body characteristics, you should also enable the Fearless Finisher to have the highest chance of making a contact layup.

Contact layups are important in one-on-one situations and close fast-breaks.

3. Pro Touch
Gives an additional boost for having a good layup timing.

Pro Touch and Consistent Finisher were always close rivals to each other in Finishing Badges in the previous NBA 2K titles, but this year, Visual Concepts has completely removed Consistent Finisher.

The functionality of the Pro Touch remains the same as before. It has always been a good help for finishing off your layups successfully as getting an excellent shot in tough situations is not easy.

2. Giant Slayer
Heightens the effectiveness of layups over taller defenders.

Giant Slayer is another essential badge that could you in scoring layups especially when the rim is heavily guarded with tall opponent players.

This badge is a must-have for short players and the combination with Pro Touch could give you a significant boost in scoring layups.

1. Slithery Finisher
Improves a player’s ability to avoid contact when attacking the rim.

While Giant Slayer only applies on taller guards, Slithery Finisher is a more general approach for scoring in tight situations when the rim is guarded.

Although all the badges above will aid to have a better finishing skill, without Slithery Finisher, they cannot be at full potential.

NBA 2K22 is now available on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Nintendo Switch, Stadia, and PC.
