Badges are a great way to customize your NBA 2K23 experience, and the Aerial Wizard badge is no exception. It increases your ability to finish alley-oops and also helps with putbacks. This article will examine precisely what the Aerial Wizard badge does and how each level affects your game.
Audio Meters and Alley-Oops
At the No Badge level, the audio meter has a lot of black space, and the green window is small and delayed. This means you have a small chance of hitting a slight, and your green window is delayed. If you have no badge and attempt an alley-oop, you may still be able to finish if your timing is good, but there are better options than this.
Hall of Fame Level
At the Hall of Fame level, the slight chances increase significantly. You can see that the green bar covers most of the meter, and the green window is moved up. This means you have an earlier opportunity to hit a green and trigger the dunk much earlier.
At the Gold level, the slight chances are similar to the Hall of Fame, though the green window is slightly later. Gold is enough for most players.
The slight chances are still good at the Silver level, but the green window is slightly later than Hall of Fame and Gold. Silver is a good option for putbacks.
At the Bronze level, the slight chances are similar to Silver, but the green window is moved back a bit. Bronze is still better than no badge, but not as good as Hall of Fame and Gold.
We recommend at least Bronze or Silver, depending on what you like to do. Hall of Fame and Gold will give you bigger slight opportunities, while Silver is a good option for putbacks. Remember that the Aerial Wizard badge helps a lot with alley-oops, so if you can get it, take advantage of it.
