Microtransactions are one of the most controversial topics within the gaming world.

On the one hand, it allows people to increase their chances of success without having any detrimental effect on the opposition.

But on the other, it takes away the natural competition that you find within gaming, allowing players to pay-to-win rather than playing to win. This has caused much debate within the NBA 2K titles over recent years.

VC is easy to obtain for those who are willing to pay for it, but for those for who would rather earn their success, here is how to pick up that virtual currency without spending a penny of your hard earned cash.

What is VC?

We're touched upon it briefly already, but VC stands for virtual currency, which can be spent in-game on a number of different items.

VC can be accumulated in two ways, the first is by completing challenges or tasks set by the developers at 2KSports (which we will run you through later in this article).

There is also the option to spend real money on VC, which will accelerate the time it takes to pick up those higher-priced items. You can spent as little as £1.69 (5,000 VC) or as much as £79.99 (450,000 VC).

You can then spend your currency on items from the in-game store, which includes:

  • MyPLAYER Attributes
  • Virtual Goods
  • Apparel
  • Animation Packages

You simply have to interact with the interactive elements found within each episode. Place your vote and voila, you have your VC reward ready and waiting for you.


For many, VC is spent on bettering yourself in MyCAREER.

But rather than fast tracking your way to the top, we recommend you start from the bottom to improve your value and therefore, earn yourself more money from your contracts.

If you can raise your draft projection to a number one pick then you will guarantee yourself a salary of 750 VC per game, which is much higher than those coming out of the second-round selections.

You can also earn VC by signing endorsement deals throughout the course of your MyCareer, so be sure to keep your public image high in order to secure the most lucrative deals when the time is right.

The team at 2K Sports like to keep players on their toes by handing you quests to complete throughout each season.
