Well, yes and no, as although the badge is present in the game’s PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC versions, the Gym Rat Badge is not present in the PS5 and Xbox Series X/S versions of NBA 2K24. But that does not mean that next-gen players cannot get extra attribute upgrades, as you will be able to get a few by reaching the Veteran 2, Veteran 3, and Top 10 Affiliation Reputation tiers.
