Do you want to know how to create Special Replicas and Secret Builds in NBA 2K23? NBA 2K23 is a basketball simulation video game developed by Visual Concepts and published by 2K Sports. It is the twenty-third installment in the NBA 2K franchise and was released on September 9, 2022, for Microsoft Windows, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. This guide will show you how to create Special Replicas and Secret Builds in NBA 2K23.
What are Special Replicas and Secret Builds in NBA 2K23?
NBA 2K23 was released on September 9, and while the game itself is undoubtedly going to be excellent, one of the most exciting aspects is the ability to obtain unique replicas of NBA players’ builds. You’ll need to put in some time and grind out those matches to get your hands on these coveted items. Your efforts will be handsomely rewarded – you’ll receive a “The Worm” replica build icon for your trouble. These icons go by player nicknames rather than their real names. Once obtained, it will be displayed below your MyPlayer’s name at all times while not in a game. Your build could also be labeled as “shades of” a player, which is a step under acquiring said player’s replica build icon.
Creating Special Replicas and Secret Builds can be very helpful if you want to edge over your opponents. Creating these replicas will give you a significant advantage over other players who don’t have access to them.
How to create Special Replicas and Secret Builds in NBA 2K23?
First, you’ll need to know essential data about a particular player. This information is necessary to create the character with a famous NBA player built in MyPlayer. Note that they have to be precise. Attributes like height, number, position, weight, and wingspan are crucial.
Besides this, you’ll need to pick the right Takeover skills to unlock a player. For example, Ja Morant has the highest Dunk Rating and can Posterize, Break Starter, and Putback King. That means his build will be better near the basket. So, if you want to create a Ja Morant build, you’ll have to make sure your MyPlayer is also good at dunking and has the Posterize, Break Starter, and Putback King Takeover skills.
If you did everything right, you’d get a message saying, “You have discovered a special replica of,” while giving options to choose team, test, and edit build.
NBA 2K23 MyCareer mode has a bunch of different Special Replicas that you can unlock by inputting the correct NBA player’s nickname. Here’s a list of some of the players you can unlock:
“Air Jordan” – Michael Jordan,
“Chef” – Stephen Curry,
“Agent Zero” – Gilbert Arenas,
“Baby Boogie” – DeMarcus Cousins,
“Deebo” – DeMar DeRozan
