How To Fast Travel In The City In NBA 2K22

NBA 2K22 brings back The City yet again within its MyCareer mode that includes a large area for you to explore, which will have players wondering how to unlock fast travel to save themselves some time.

The City made its debut in last year’s NBA 2K game as an evolution of The Neighborhood, though this time much larger than ever before. With plenty of quests to complete, such as finding Jake from State Farm, getting around the map quicker can be a big help.

To make travel around The City much easier, there is an ability to fast travel, though you have to work to unlock the majority of it.

How To Unlock Fast Travel To Your Apartment In NBA 2K22

Your apartment is essentially your hub in NBA 2K22’s Career Mode, which you will consistently be traveling back and forth to while playing.

The good news here is that right out of the gate, you will have access to fast travel in NBA 2K22. The bad news, however, is that you are limited in where you can go.

While anywhere in The City, you can press R1 or the respective button on other platforms to bring up a fast travel option, which will ask you if you would like to fast travel back to your apartment. This is the only “fast travel” location in the game, but thankfully you can unlock something known as Spawn Points as well.

What Are Spawn Points And How To Unlock Them

Spawn Points are essentially a form of fast travel that you can unlock in NBA 2K22, but it is going to take a while for you to get access to them.

To unlock Spawn Points, you will need to complete a certain quest, which starts by going to the NBA Store near the center of the map. Once there, go down a nearby alley to find an NPC named ATM that you need to speak with.

ATM will give you quests to complete, so do whatever he asks until he eventually gives you one called “Unlock Spawn Location.” This one is going to be easier said than done though, as it requires you to walk 26.2 miles in the game.

Riding on a skateboard or anything does not count, as only walking and running on foot counts towards the total. In addition, this counter doesn’t start until you get the quest, so prepare to do a lot of walking.

There’s really no quick way to do this, so just walk around if you want to complete it or let it eventually add up while you are completing other quests.

Once you finally hit the 26.2 mile mark, you will unlock custom Spawn Points that will show up on the map that will allow you to select them. Pick the one that you want to go to and then quit out to the main menu. Now reload MyCareer and it will start you at your near Spawn Point.

While not quite as efficient as the true fast travel to your apartment time-wise in NBA 2K22, loading is very quick on next-gen platforms, which should be much faster than traveling directly.
