NBA 2K18's Virtual Currency isn't doled out in large amounts, but this glitch will allow you to get lots of it in a few minutes. It works on version 1.02 of the game. NBA 2K18 is available on PS4, Xbox One, Switch and PC. Visual Concepts/2K Sports

NBA 2K18 ’s aggressive microtransactions have been a hot topic for gamers over the past few days and it seems fans have found at least one way around them. As recorded by YouTube’s Sweet Cookie, MyGM and MyLeague can be leveraged for some quick upgrades across the board. Here’s what you have to do:

  1. If you’ve recently earned VC, wait at least 10 minutes before your attempt.
  2. In MyGM or MyLeague, create a new franchise and delete any you may have in progress.
  3. When setting up the franchise, choose a current NBA team and start in the regular season. Finally, select “Start Mode.”
  4. Choose any team and advance past the MyLeague automation options.
  5. When the calendar appears, choose “auto-generate rookies” from the popup menu.
  6. View your navigation screen and scroll over to “Options.” Under the Trades heading, turn CPU trades off.
  7. On your first game select “Simulate With Simcast.” Select “Simulate Game,” stop the simulation and choose “Play Game.”
  8. Once it loads, open the menu and immediately select “Quit” and “Sim To End.” Ignore the warning that pops up and quit.
  9. Back at the calendar, open your nav, scroll to options and change the Simulated Quarter Length to 11 minutes instead of 12.
  10. Simulate the next game just as before, and once back at the calendar, bring up your nav and reduce the Simulated Quarter Length by one again. Repeat until the length is five minutes.
  11. By then you should’ve played eight full games in the season, and you will be rewarded somewhere between 4,000 and 5,000 VC for your efforts.
  12. Wait 10 minutes, rinse and repeat.

Those who need some video help can watch Cookie’s YouTube clip above. This VC glitch works up to version 1.02 of NBA 2K18 and will likely be patched by the development team at Visual Concepts fairly soon. However, given the VC fiasco this game has caused, we wouldn’t be too surprised if 2K offered a slightly longer window to let gamers take advantage of this exploit than usual. It currently works at the time of writing and can be leveraged across all modes that take advantage of VC.

That being said, because this glitch farms currency in an unintended way, we do not take responsibility for any action against your account that 2K could feasibly take as a result of using it. No punishments have been doled out yet, but, in case they are later on, consider yourself warned.

NBA 2K18 is available now on PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, Switch and PC.
