• NBA 2K23: INTERCEPTOR BADGE DISCOURAGES PASSING


Players say they want developers to remove the Interceptor Badge to improve NBA 2K23.


The Interceptor Badge in NBA 2K23 significantly increases players' chances of landing steals in the passing lane.


Unsurprisingly, it is one of the basketball sim’s best defensive skills and can become quite the game-changer for all positions on the court. Not everyone is fond of the Interceptor skill, however; many users think of it as a buff that greatly diminishes the fun of playing. It seems such feelings among the player community have only strengthened over time.
