How Much VC is Needed to Upgrade your MyPlayer?

Upgrading your MyPlayer with VC can get very expensive. Here‘s a breakdown of how much VC it takes to reach key Overall Rating milestones:

MyPlayer OVRVC Required
60 to 7015,000 VC
70 to 8040,000 VC
80 to 8555,000 VC
85 to 9095,000 VC
90 to 95145,000 VC
95 to 99200,000+ VC

As you can see, reaching that coveted 99 OVR will cost over 200,000 VC!

The good news is you can generate VC steadily by combining the daily and grinding methods I‘ve outlined in this guide. With some dedication, you can reach 85+ OVR without spending any real money on VC.

Is Purchasing VC Worth it in NBA 2K22?

Here‘s a look at how much some popular VC pack sizes cost in NBA 2K22:

VC PackPrice (USD)
15,000 VC$4.99
35,000 VC$9.99
75,000 VC$19.99
200,000 VC$49.99

With 200,000 VC costing almost $50, buying your way to a 99 OVR MyPlayer could cost over $100!

While purchased VC eliminates the grind, consider that:

  • The sense of accomplishment from earning VC is lost
  • VC bought for one 2K game won‘t transfer to the next
  • You don‘t really own digital content purchased with real money
  • MyTEAM pack luck is never guaranteed

Personally, I only recommend buying VC if you really don‘t have the time to earn VC through gameplay and want to speed up the process. Otherwise, use the savvy tips in this guide to get your free VC!

Answering Common Free VC Questions

Let‘s wrap up this guide by answering some frequently asked questions on getting free VC:

How often do locker codes get released?

There‘s no set schedule, but new codes usually drop with content updates, limited time events, and MyTEAM Promo Packs.

What‘s the daily limit for earning VC offline?

No strict limit, but repeatable activities stop rewarding VC after a point. Actual games still payout reasonable offline earnings.

Can you earn VC without an internet connection?

Yes! Many modes allow offline earning, just at reduced rates compared to online play.

Is VC shared across MyCareer, MyTEAM and MyGM?

No. VC is separate for each game mode, not usable universally. MyCareer VC won‘t transfer to MyTEAM for example.

Can I transfer VC between accounts or consoles?

Unfortunately no. You also can‘t gift VC directly to other users. Only way to share is buying a 2K gift card code for them to redeem.

What are the highest VC rewards in MyCareer?

Championships pay 25,000 VC, big endorsement deals can pay over 50,000 VC and level 39 MyCareer seasonal rewards give 100,000 VC!

How long would it take a new player to earn 200,000 VC?

Using the tips in this guide, expect it to take around 1-2 months for a new player without bonuses or multipliers. Veteran players can cut that time significantly.

And there you have it! With the knowledge from this guide, you now have all the tools needed to earn unlimited free VC in NBA 2K22. Never pay for VC again!
