NBA 2K series is one of the most popular in gaming, and for a good reason. The game is top-notch, and the graphics are amazing.

This guide will walk you through every takeover in NBA 2K23 and explain what you need to do to win. So put on your gaming face and get ready to take over the pitch!

NBA 2K23: Best takeovers to pick

Advance Job Moves/Job Breakdown
Advance Post Moves takeovers greatly increase your chances of defeating defenders with post moves. Getting around defenses becomes child’s play when using Advance Post Moves. Post Breakdown helps push the defender away and shoot high. Both acquisitions were a huge help after the game. We highly recommend using one of these if you’re struggling after a game.

Shooting Dagger
Another takeover to spice up your postgame. When using this takeover, the overall scoring potential is boosted. Executing the hook fades away and swinging the ball becomes relatively easy.

Easy Bowbys
You can easily take over any player by using this. Especially when paired with the Bully badge, you’ll be unstoppable when you’re done.

Negative Impact
Defensive impact on pull-ups and other skill shots is significantly reduced. It lets you take almost any photo while also letting you “fade” and “green” it.

Unlimited Range
When using this takeover, your maximum firing range is expanded. This allows you to make shots that other players can’t, making you a constant threat no matter where you stand on the court. 2K23 badges can also be used with unlimited range, but it’s locked behind many 3-pointer attribute points.

Ankle Fracture
This takeover allows you to perform a step-back jumper and off-balance the opposing defense as you perform the dribble action. Plus, it’s pretty easy to get a Hall of Famer in this acquisition, making it one of the best acquisitions in NBA 2K23.
