NBA 2K23 is finally here and players are looking for ways to level up fast. There are seasons in NBA 2K23 that work like a free battle pass for all players to enjoy. As you level up, you will get exclusive rewards and gear. With that said, here is how to level up fast in NBA 2K23.

How to Level Up Fast in NBA 2K23

Each season in NBA 2K23 only lasts for about 60 days, so if you want to grind all the way up to Level 40, you’re going to want to know the fastest methods. One of the easiest and quickest ways to earn XP in NBA 2K23 is by completing the daily challenges. Depending on how consistent you are, you can earn 400 XP daily just by completing the daily challenges.

Win the Weekend challenges—new challenges that are live each Friday, Saturday, and Sunday—are some great ways to earn extra XP as well. If you finish the majority of the Win the Weekend challenges, you’ll earn up to 6K XP each weekend. And that isn’t counting the daily challenges on each weekend day and the standard XP you get just from doing random things in the game.

Season 1 Tip-Off challenges are also a great way to earn XP fast in NBA 2K23. While you are playing games, these challenges are bound to get completed anyways, but keep an eye out for the extra tricky ones.

Ultimately, the best way to level up fast in NBA 2K23 is by playing the game. As you play, you will be knocking out challenges, earning XP while winning, and completing other quests in The City.
