NBA 2K23 how to get vc

There are plenty of ways of getting VC. Some are easier than others, and some provide you with a way to get VC quickly. In this guide, we have covered most of them, so you can opt for any of the methods you fancy.

Before I begin with the different ways to get VC, you should know that you also get VC at the start once you purchase the game. The amount of VC you get initially depends upon the version of NBA 2K23 you buy. For example, the Michael Jordan Editions come with a hundred thousand VC.

Now that the basics are out of the way let us jump right into what you came here for.

Important Points

  • VC is a must-have as it helps you succeed at two of the most important modes in the game.
  • You can use VC to purchase different things in the game.
  • There are plenty of ways to get VC, such as buying it, using the NBA 2k app, daily rewards, etc.

Buying The Virtual Currency

One of the ways to get VC is by simply buying it using real-world money. The amount of how much VC costs can vary from country to country.

Below is a list of prices for different amounts of VC:

  • 5000 VC = $1.99
  • 15,000 VC = $4.99
  • 35,000 VC = $9.99
  • 75,000 VC = $19.99
  • 200,000 VC = $49.99
  • 450,000 VC = $99.99

NBA 2K App

Probably one of the easiest ways to get VC is through the NBA 2K app.

  1. All that you need to do is download the NBA 2K app on your smartphone and log in every day to get some VC.
  2. The icing on the cake is the fact that the app also has a few mini-games in it that you can play to get some extra VC for yourself.
  3. This entire process will hardly take fifteen minutes, and in return, you can get anywhere from 400-600 VC for it.

  1. The NBA 2KTV is a weekly show that allows you to get VC. Each episode is about 15 minutes long, and during each episode, you will get the chance to answer some questions.
  2. If you answer the question correctly, you will get about 200 VC per question as a reward.
  3. You can easily earn about 1000 VC per episode, so do not miss out on them.
  4. That being said, this method is for you if you are one of those people who have extensive basketball knowledge.
  5. If you do not, do not worry because you can find the answers to the questions on the internet as well.

Daily Rewards

You can also obtain VC as a daily reward. If you are someone who likes to get things for free in return for little to no effort, then you will like this method.

  1. The first thing that you need to do is go on the City Map and choose ‘Daily Rewards.’
  2. As a result, you will be able to see the statue that you need to go to if you want a reward.
  3. Once you get there, just choose ‘Claim Daily Reward,’ and voila! You just earned yourself some free VC that easily.

Daily Pick’em

You may also be able to find a new feature called “Daily Pick’em” that offers the opportunity to win VC (Virtual Currency) based on your knowledge of real-world NBA games. You can access this feature in the Promenade or the Block within the City.

Here’s how it works:

  1. You need to predict the winner of an actual NBA game happening in the current NBA season.
  2. If your prediction is correct, you earn VC as a reward.
  3. With accurate picks, you can easily earn up to 1000 VC.

This is an excellent way to accumulate VC because you have a 50% chance of being right since it’s a simple winner prediction. Plus, it only takes about 5 minutes to make your picks, making it a quick and potentially rewarding activity in the game.

Play Now Online

“Play Now Online” is a mode that allows you to earn VC (Virtual Currency) while having fun and practicing your skills. One of the enjoyable aspects of this mode is that you can choose your team, including legendary teams like the 1990s Bulls.

Here’s how you can earn VC in this mode:

  1. Simply play against someone in a game.
  2. Upon completing the game, you will receive 400 VC as a reward.
  3. If you win the game, you will earn an additional 150 VC as a bonus for your victory.

Daily Challenge

For those who do not know, the daily challenge is a mode in MyCareer.

  1. To access it, head to the ‘Quest Journal.’
  2. There you will see the challenge for the day.
  3. If you can complete it successfully within 24 hours, you can earn anywhere from 1000 to 5000 VC.

Daily Trivia

The ‘daily trivia’ is an event that can potentially make you a VC millionaire. This event can be accessed using your smartphone in MyCareer. In it, as the name accurately suggests, you need to keep on answering questions right and keep on moving further and further.

If you are lucky and smart enough, you will be rewarded for correctly answering all the questions. The reward can be in millions, so this is a great way to test your luck out at becoming a VC millionaire. Something that you should keep in mind is that the questions can be about anything, like basketball, history, science, and more.

Ante Up

If you are someone who has put in a lot of work in NBA 2K23 and wants to make some serious VC, then this method is for you.

Here’s how it works:

  1. You put your VC on the line as a wager before the match.
  2. If you win the match, you can earn a significant amount of VC.
  3. However, if you lose, you can potentially lose the VC you wagered.

It’s important to note that this method carries risk, so it’s recommended for players who are confident in their abilities. If you’re unsure, it’s advisable to first play a few games with the lowest VC wagers to gauge your performance in the arena.


Completing quests that are available for you in the MyCareer mode can also help you earn VC.

There are different types of quests which can be put into the following different categories:

  • Career quests
  • Personal brand quests
  • Season quests
  • City quests

The Cage

  1. If you are tired of playing the usual games and feel like playing without having to worry about the rules, doing fouls, or anything else, then this is for you.
  2. The cage is a mode in which you need to win from other teams. It can be accessed through the Silver Deck in the elevator.
  3. If you want to make the most of this mode, then I suggest that you become as notorious as possible and use the objects in the surroundings, like the trampoline, to your advantage.

Theater 4

  1. Theater 4 is a new addition to the City and is a great way for players to acquire VC by playing 3v3 games.
  2. The good thing about theater 4 is that squads are not allowed in it.
  3. The matchmaking in it is entirely random. Therefore, you will not have to wait for a long while before playing.
  4. In addition to that, if you are a good enough player to carry the other two players on your, then this is a great way for you to get about 300-400 VC each game.
