Cheat Trainer


While NBA 2K23 does not include a built-in cheat system, there are still ways to add cheats to the game as a way to spice it up a little. Downloading and using a trainer is one of the ways you can add cheats to the game.

We suggest you read reviews on any trainer or software you add to your system, but the Plitch Trainer has worked for multiple users and provides a vast range of cheats to enable.

The trainer provides the following cheats:

  • Set Quarter Time to 30 Seconds
  • Set Quarter Time to 5 Minutes
  • Unlimited Stamina
  • No Fatigue
  • Add Skillpoints (MyGM)
  • Set Shot Clock
  • Set the Shot Clock to 25 Seconds
  • Set the Shot Clock to 0
  • Set Quarter Number to 1
  • Set Quarter Number to 4
As a trainer may be difficult to add to the game for an inexperienced user, here is a guide that helps you add cheats for NBA 2K23.

Joining The League


You will be able to choose which NBA team drafts you, allowing you to either select your favorite team or a team on which you will play a bigger role. You'll play Shep in the Summer League championship match right after being selected. Not only can you make Shep look bad, but your coach will also base their game plan on how you perform in the Summer League. You'll get the nickname "sixth man" and be the first option off the bench if you receive an A or higher in the class.

Your progress as an NBA player will largely depend on how well you play in games. Your letter grade performance in the game will increase if you make shots, open up opportunities for others, defend, and don't make errors. Take advantage of the opportunities that the defense presents, and always choose to pass the ball correctly for an easy assist rather than forcing a shot to try to score yourself. 

You won't advance in the league if you commit turnovers, make poor shot selections, and exhibit poor defensive play. Earning MyCareer points will raise your maximum level overall, and virtual currency (VC) is used to directly raise attributes. The best way to earn VC and quickly upgrade your attributes is to complete season goals. Additionally, you'll gain experience points to level up in the Season Pass, which offers a variety of rewards.

Replica Builds

Easter Eggs

As a new "easter egg" element in NBA 2K23 MyPLAYER Builder, "Replica Builds" showcase developed builds that are strikingly similar to the build type of an actual NBA player (past and present). When this occurs, you'll receive a notification saying "You have discovered a particular replica of" (an NBA player), along with their nickname, at the end of the construct creation process.

Replica Builds include historical players like George "Mr. Basketball" Mikan and Jerry "The Logo," contemporary stars like "Chef" Curry and Kevin "Slim Reaper" Durant, and non-superstar but distinctive players like Rafer "Skip 2 My Lou" Alston and Avery "Little General" Johnson, as well as the G.O.A.T., Michael "Air" Jordan.

Owning the City


The city refers to the world of the MyCareer hub. In addition to training facilities, news outlets, recording studios, corner stores, tattoo artists, basketball courts, street races, and many other things, this vast metropolis is also home to many other things. In essence, the city is where you establish your reputation both on and off the court. Your in-game performances will increase your fan base and contribute to the development of your reputation in the city, and you'll look for endorsement deals with businesses to gain more currency. Citywide, there are subway stations that serve as quick travel hubs. Running into the subway will cause the menu to appear, allowing you to navigate the area quickly. Brickley's Gym and the Gatorade training facility both offer daily drills that you can complete to earn points toward unlocking badges.

Your team will come up with a plan to overthrow Shep after completing the main mission's introduction, "Welcome To The League." The city was divided into the following four districts: NBA, Fashion, Business, and Music. You may receive beneficial rewards for completing certain off-court tasks, such as virtual currency (VC), badges, or shooting animations that may be helpful on the court. To win over the supporters and ruin Shep's reputation, MP must defeat the boss in each district. Once every district is completed, MP will face off against Shep to take him down. The long road to NBA immortality begins with you defeating your opponent.

Make The Perfect Build


You'll start by changing your player's appearance before we get into how high your three-point shooting rating will be. The numerous hairstyle options in NBA 2K23 are as varied as the finely detailed facial feature scales.

The choice of your player's position will come after you've decided on their appearance. Your ability to modify your player's height and weight based on each position will have a significant impact on your ratings. For players up to 6'10", we found that increasing your player's wingspan does not affect ball-handling skills. To shoot over defenders and cover players on defense, one must have a wide wingspan.

Once your player's physical build is complete, it's time to finish building their attributes. The significance of designing an appropriate build cannot be emphasized enough. To determine how well your player would perform at their maximum level, you will distribute attribute points among various sections. Understanding how to manipulate the system to boost more than one key area is essential because categories highlighted in yellow will all be impacted when the attribute is increased. Make use of the variety of shooting animations to find your ideal fit. It's crucial to pick the right one, whether it comes from your favorite player or was generated at random.

Specific star-player builds might be made, but this is incredibly uncommon. View the potential badges in each important category (finishing, shooting, playmaking, and defense) and make a plan for how you'll unlock them throughout your career. Some bronze badges have no requirements, whereas blacked-out badges can't be unlocked depending on your build. Regardless of what you name your player, they’ll be referred to as MP.

The game will let you know which players most resemble the character you've created before you finish your build. Before moving forward, it is advised to test several builds with the maximum number of attributes.
