The Downhill badge is back for NBA 2K22 and increases your player’s speed with ball rating on fastbreak opportunities, giving a boost to how fast a player runs with the ball on a fastbreak. It is in the Playmaking category of badges.

You need the following attributes to unlock Downhill for your player:

  • Bronze: 43 Speed with Ball
  • Silver: 55 Speed with Ball
  • Gold: 64 Speed with Ball
  • Hall of Fame: 73 Speed with Ball

Recommendation: If you frequently run the fastbreak for your team, Downhill is going to be a great badge to have on a high level. Otherwise this badge does not have a ton of use.
