How to set up an Inside Out Playmaker build
Playmakers serve as the linchpins of offensive strategies for many teams in NBA 2K24. Their primary objective is to create abundant scoring opportunities for the team, allowing their teammates to showcase their best skills.
To craft this playmaker build, we’ll allocate 89 points to Driving Dunk, primarily to unlock the coveted Pro Contact Dunks Off Two. Additional badges like Posterizer are the icing on the cake, enhancing your dunking prowess, especially following rebounds.
In terms of shooting, we’ll distribute 75 points to Mid-Range Shot, 89 points to Three-point Shot, and 68 points to Free Throw. This allocation opens the door to valuable badges like Limitless Range and Catch & Shoot, significantly boosting the range and speed of your passes.
As a playmaker, defensive prowess isn’t our strong suit. Instead, we employ hit-and-run tactics, seeking the path of least resistance. Avoiding physical confrontations with sturdy defenders, we rely on our speed and precise shooting abilities to efficiently distribute the ball. To achieve this, we’ll invest 87 points in Pass Accuracy, 93 points in Ball Handle, and 83 points in Speed with Ball. This stat distribution unlocks skills such as Bail Out for more accurate mid-air passes, while the overall emphasis on Pass Accuracy and Speed with Ball ensures your passes reach their intended targets, while also granting superior dribbling capabilities.
While pure defense may not be our forte, defensive skills geared towards ball retrieval align with our role as playmakers. Allocate 76 points to Perimeter Defense and 60 to Steal. This unlocks the Clamps badge, amplifying the effectiveness of your bump attempts against ball handlers and increasing your chances of regaining possession for your team.
In the physical attributes category, distribute 82 points to Speed, 91 points to Acceleration, 60 points to Strength, 79 points to Vertical, and 96 points to Stamina. This well-rounded distribution, especially in Strength and Vertical, unlocks valuable dunk packages like Aerial Wizard and Fearless Finisher. The remaining attributes enable quality badges like Handles for Days, enhancing energy efficiency and ensuring you can navigate the court with a high stamina cap before fatigue sets in.
