The Tear Dropper badge is back for NBA 2K22 and improves a player’s ability to known down floaters and runners. It is in the Finishing category of badges.

To unlock Gold Tear Dropper for your player on next-gen, you’ll need at least the following:

  • Bronze: 51 Driving Layup
  • Silver: 62 Driving Layup
  • Gold: 70 Driving Layup
  • Hall of Fame: 78 Driving Layup

Recommendation: Floaters are actually very effective when used correctly, but we don’t recommend equipping this badge unless you seriously take a good amount of floaters throughout games.
