Getting XP in NBA 2K21 is a long and difficult grind, which is not easy for new players. Therefore, in this guide, we’ll tell you some tips and tricks for getting XP in NBA 2K21.


Season agenda

The Season Agenda has several different ways to earn XP fast.

These goals are mostly goals that you can sit down and unlock within a single session, with things like Daily Goals, Moments, and Weekly Goals to tackle. There are also player goals from the different packs that become available. Completing these can give you a big XP. Of course, there are many other goals similar to this one.

The best way to go about doing this is to focus on the goals that you can get and try to complete multiple goals in one game. While it may seem time-consuming if these goals require high points scored, assists or other stat-heavy goals, a good place to do them is on the Pro difficulty Domination games. Pick and choose your goals, and you’ll start earning pretty quickly, with the rewards being things like 2k mt, tokens, packs, and ascension board tries.

Lifetime agenda

The Lifetime Agendas really shouldn’t be focused on if you’re trying to get XP fast. Most of the challenges in the Lifetime section of Agendas will take you quite some time to complete. These include doing things like earning 100’s of stars in Domination, completing collections, and more.

Knock out multiple challenges in one game

You can do the challenges for multiple players in one game, which cuts down the number of games and time you have to play.

Write down challenges on a piece of paper

Please write down the challenges and cross them out throughout the game. This is the best way to keep track of what you need to do and streamlines the process.

Play rookie domination (or other easy game modes)

Rookie Dom is super easy for knocking out challenges, and there’s typically a Spotlight challenge that makes certain XP challenges easier to complete.

Focus on manageable challenges

Skipping frustrating challenges (like steals) and focusing on doable challenges will both save you headaches and time while still allowing you to reach your goal level.

Do more challenges towards the end of the season

The challenges towards the end of the season give you a higher XP per minute. Complete the easier challenges at the beginning of the season and knock many better ones out towards the end.

Make doing XP challenges fun

Find a method that makes the grind fun and enjoyable. There’s no point in playing the game if you’re not having fun, so try to make the process as enjoyable as possible.
