Primary, Secondary, and Team Takeovers

New to the next-gen version of NBA 2K21 is the ability to set Primary and Secondary Takeovers. During a game, making positive plays will begin to fill up your Primary Takeover first. Once you've filled that meter, the Secondary Takeover bar will begin to fill. You can either choose to activate the Primary Takeover right away once you have filled the meter or attempt to fill up both and then activate both abilities simultaneously for an extra boost. Keep in mind, however, that if you make a bad play, your Primary Takeover meter progress will reset.

Team Takeover will return to the next-gen edition of NBA 2K21. The Team Takeover can be filled upon completing the Primary and Secondary bars. Once you've filled all three bars, you can then activate not just the Primary and Secondary Takeovers but also the Team Takeover for the entire roster. And just like with the current-gen version, activating the Team Takeover will give you complete control over your teammates.

Best MyPlayer Takeovers

MyPlayer Takeovers
Which Takeovers should you consider using in NBA 2K21? Let's go over our picks for the best Takeover abilities.

1). Finishing Moves

Description – Able to absorb contact and finish at the rim

This ability is a great addition for bigs, as Finishing moves allow players to absorb contact and finish the shot at the rim.

Generally speaking, making contact when attempting to finish decreases the chances of making the shot successfully, but this Takeover ability lessens the effect. If you plan on creating a tall power forward or center build, this Takeover needs to be on your shortlist.

2). Limitless Range

Description – Extends your shooting range out to the logos

Now let's move on to an ability that should work quite nicely for guards and forwards: Limitless Range. Limitless Range extends out the range that you can make three-point shots, making this Takeover a seamless fit for snipers from a long-range.

3). Paint Intimidation

Description – Boosts your ability to affect shots around the rim

Paint Intimidation boosts a player's ability to affect shots around the rim. These shots are usually high percentage ones that have a very good chance of going in the basket, especially if the opposing player has high post scoring attributes. This Takeover, much like Finishing Moves, would fit in very well with most power forward and center builds.

4). See the Future

Description – Shows where missed shots are going to end up

While See the Future won't necessarily help you make shots, it will show where missed shots will end up. This Takeover can be quite helpful, as it can allow you to position yourself well after a missed shot, which should help in attempting to keep possession of the basketball.

5). Easy Blowbys

Description – Enhances ability for slashers to beat defenders off the dribble

If your MyPlayer is a Slasher, and you're pretty comfortable with dribbling, perhaps try out the Easy Blowbys Takeover. This Takeover allows slashers to receive an enhanced ability to beat defenders off the dribble. If you're handy with R/R3, this Takeover might work for you.

7). Other Takeovers worth using

Here are some other Takeovers you may want to consider using in NBA 2K21:

    • Negative Impact – Reduces defensive impact against pull-ups and other skill shots
    • Team Ratings Boost – Playmakers boost their teammates' offensive ratings
    • Power Backdowns – Easier to push defenders around when posting up
    • Advanced Post Moves – Easier to beat defenders with post moves
    • Pull-Up Precision – Boosts well-timed/aimed shots off the dribble

And remember, you can change Takeover abilities once you acquire the Mamba Mentality badge.

How to change Takeover abilities?

To honor the late Kobe Bryant, who's on the cover of the Mamba Forever Edition, the NBA 2K21 devs added a new Badge to this year's game, entitled Mamba Mentality. In order to unlock this Badge, you must have earned all of your character's Badge points. Once you've acquired all of those Badge points and unlocked Mamba Mentality, you will have the ability to change your character's Takeovers.

It's going to take quite a bit of time to accomplish this, but this change does give players the ability to mess around with different Takeovers. Plus, the method to unlock this ability is relatively straight-forward.

In addition to takeovers, NBA 2k21 mt coins are equally important in the next generation. It can be used to unlock powerful players to build a dream team better through customizing Franchise and Appearance. U4GM is the best place to buy 2k21 mt with Fast Delivery and Great Service even Cheap Price.
