NBA 2K20 Trophy Guide and Roadmap

Updated: Nov 4, 2021

Trophy Difficulty 9/10

Hours 300+

Step 1 (Optional) The majority of trophies are earned in either Myteam or Mycareer but you can start in Quick Play if you want to get a few trophies early with 2 controllers, the following can be unlocked in any mode where you play with the full team however you will likely do this in Quick play or Myteam. I suggest doing these in Quick play if you have 2 controllers if not you can do it in Myteam as you will be playing a large amount of games and will eventually have a great team.

Step 2 As I have stated you can go in any order you like, but the majority of your time will be in Myteam so I would suggest starting their first. The ultimate goal in Myteam that will be the platinum prevent for many people will be theUltimate Collectoras you need 2900 cards. This will take a lot of time/money or both depending on the route you take. The division trophies and dynamic duo trophy can be done in a single game each. The following trophies will be earned in myteam.

MyATLANTIC MyTEAM

MyCENTRAL MyTEAM

MySOUTHEAST MyTEAM

MyNORTHWEST MyTEAM

MyPACIFIC MyTEAM

MySOUTHWEST MyTEAM

Geologist

Dynamic

The More The Merrier

Ultimate Collector


Step 3 The remaining trophies will be done in Mycareer, you will likely need to make a few different builds to make each trophy easier. Remember you can adjust the quarter length to 12 minutes to make it easier to get the required stats for each trophy. The trophies in Mycareer are the following:

The Butcher

The Baker

The Candlestick Maker

Dirty Dishes

Doing The Dishes

Dishwasher

Collector

Hoarder

Second Chances

Play It Again, Fam

Dead End

Fly Swatter

Finders

As the description says earn all other trophies for the platinum to unlock



The Butcher

Score 10 points in a MyCAREER game

See The Candlestick Maker





The Baker

Score 20 points in a MyCAREER game

See The Candlestick Maker





The Candlestick Maker

Score 50 points in a MyCAREER game

I suggest combining this trophy with the I Just Can't Stop Scoring trophy as you will need 45 points for that trophy anyway. You can use any built to do this trophy but I suggest making a sharpshooter and start upgrading your 3 Point attributes and any other scoring attributes.


To make this trophy easier set the game to 12 quarters and play on pro difficulty.






Dirty Dishes

Get 5 assists in a MyCAREER game


See The Dishwaher






Doing The Dishes

Get 10 assists in a MyCAREER game


See The Dishwaher





Dishwasher

Get 15 assists in a MyCAREER game


For this trophy you will need to get 15 assists in 1 game. The best way to achieve this is to play on pro with 12 minute quarters and don't shot the ball only look to pass. I did this as a center for the 76ers but you can do it with any type of myplayer. To improve your chances try to have a high teammate chemistry so they will give you the ball often so you can then set them up for assists. If you are having trouble with this trophy you can upgrade your passing attributes.




Collector

Get 10 defensive rebounds in a MyCAREER game

See Hoarder for tips





Hoarder

Get 20 defensive rebounds in a MyCAREER game

For this trophy you are going to want to create a glass cleaner preferably a Center or Power Forward. You'll want to play with 12 minute quarters and pro difficulty you could also buy rebounding boosts from the boost stand. When a shot is going up you will want to box out your opponent with L2. If you are still having difficulty you can try upgrading the following badges Box, Rebound Chaser, Worm, and the next 2 could also help Defensive leader (improved team defense should lead to more misses) Intimidator (improved defense causes more misses)




Second Chances

Get 3 offensive rebounds in a MyCAREER game

See Hoarder and Play it Again, Fam for tips





Play It Again, Fam

Get 5 offensive rebounds in a MyCAREER game

See Hoarder for more tips


Much like hoarder you will want to create a glass cleaner but this time you are going for offensive rebounds. You'll want to upgrade your offensive rebounds attribute and upgrade the same badges as for hoarder. You'll want to get under the hoop before your teammates take the shot.





Dead End

Get 3 blocks in a MyCAREER game


See Fly Swatter For Tips






Fly Swatter

Get 5 blocks in a MyCAREER game

You'll want to create a rim protector for this trophy. You will want to upgrade the blocks attribute, and also purchase the blocks boost if still having issues. The badges you should upgrade are Rim Protector followed by POGO And Chasedown Artist. To improve your chances set the quarter length to 12 minutes and keep the difficulty on pro.





Finders

Get 3 steals in a MyCAREER game

See Finders for tips




Keepers

Get 5 steals in a MyCAREER game


You will want to create a lockdown defender for this trophy, and upgrade your steal attribute. On pro you can try spamming square and should be able to pick up a few steals, or you can try to jump in front of passes you think are coming to the person you are guarding with the square button. The main badge you will want to upgrade is pick pocket as it helps more steals, and less fouls called against you. The secondary badge to upgrade is interceptor which will help with trying to intercept passes in the air. You'll want to set the quarter length to 12 minutes.








Freeloader

Make 5 free throws in a MyCAREER game

See It's Free Real Estate for Tips



It's Free Real Estate

Make 10 free throws in a MyCAREER game


The best way to draw fouls it by driving to the hope repeatedly. You will want to improve your free throw shooting attributes, and use boosts to shooting if still having difficulty. You will want to play with 12 minute quarters to improve your chances of going to the foul line.




It's Raining

Make 5 three-pointers in a MyCAREER game

See I Just Can't Stop Scoring For Tips




It's Pouring

Make 10 three-pointers in a MyCAREER game

See I Just Can't Stop Scoring For Tips





I Just Can't Stop Scoring

Make 15 three-pointers in a MyCAREER game


You will want to create a sharpshooter, and upgrade his 3 point shooting attribute and 3 point boosts. You will want to build up your teammate chemistry so they will pass you the ball when use demand it with X. You will want to set the quarter length to 12 minutes to maximize your chances, you should combine this with the Candlestick Maker Trophy.





'Da Real MVP

Be named Player of the Game in MyCAREER


This should come naturally while going for the One Man Show and Candlestick Maker trophies.





One-Man Show

Score or assist on half your team's points in a MyCAREER game

As the description says score or assist on half the teams scoring. When i tried with assists plus points it didn't pop for me so I had to do it with points. I got my teammate chemistry to 100% by getting good teammate grades and answering questions that put the team first. This way they always give you the ball when you demand it with X. Since I would receive the ball every time I could take threes, this trophy can be difficult to achieve until you become a starter who play gain alot of minutes.







For The Show

Record a double-double in a MyCAREER game

See To Go Trophy






To Get Ready

Record a triple-double in a MyCAREER game

See To Go Trophy





To Go

Record a quadruple-double in a MyCAREER game


The hardest trophy in myCareer you must have 10 or more in 4 of the 5 Categories below:


Points

Rebounds

Assists

Blocks

Steals


It goes without saying you should set quarter length to 12 minutes, and pro difficulty. You will either want to focus on 10 steals or 10 blocks as its very unlikely you can get both in 1 game. I was able to achieve this with my Glass Cleaning Rim Protector I focused on getting blocks and the rebounds came while trying for the blocks. On offense try to get the 10 assists or points 1st then focus on the other category.


See Fly Swatter, Keepers, and Hoarder for more tips!

This should come naturally going for other trophies, just string together a few plays in a row that play to your archetype to build the meter then press r3 once it is full.
