NBA 2K21 kicks off Season 5 of MyTeam with superhero vibes galore. Dubbed Age of Heroes, Season 5 is a bit different from previous seasons.
For one, the season is only five weeks long as opposed to the customary six. Because of this, Agenda XP is receiving a boost and win requirements are being reduced. In Limited, only five rings are needed to earn Galaxy Opal Pau Gasol. Season 5 also features a new level 40 prize: Galaxy Opal David Robinson.
Changes and additions
- New players in The Exchange, including Amythest Larry Bird, Diamond Khris Middleton, and Galaxy Opal Lou Hudson.
- A new PS5 Challenge Activity has been added. Pit your best lineup against the 2000 Raptors to get 10 dunks against Vince Carter and T-Mac. The more dunks you throw down, the higher your ranking on the leaderboard!
- Based on community feedback, Limited will keep the 4 minute quarter lengths from Season 4. New lineup restrictions include rules based on Lineup OVR (Overall Rating). This adds a new challenge for lineup builders.
- More Galaxy Opal rewards! Triple Threat has expanded to 1,000 wins with Galaxy Opal Peja Stojakovic at the new high mark. Galaxy Opal Don Ohl has been added to The Vault.
- Triple Threat Online receives its first Galaxy Opal; Fred Brown. Due to Michael Jordan gracing the Ball Drops this season, 10-slot boards return after wins in Triple Threat Online.
- No more Amethyst shakes. For the rest of the year, only Diamond and higher rated players will trigger a player walkout.
- Finally, new Token Rewards in the Reward Market. Players include Galaxy Opal Moses Malone, Diamond Devin Booker, and Amethyst Dejounte Murray.
2K is dropping two new collections. These collections feature Superhero versions of 15 Modern Age and 15 Golden Age players. Collecting all 30 of the players unlocks a prize “undreamt of” in MyTeam. The road to collection is broken down into two agenda groups: Released and Coming Soon. The latter will be updated throughout Season 5 and participants will be rewarded with Superhero players. Every Friday, the rest will be released. These hero-themed cards include: Luka Doncic, Mitchell Robinson, Drazen Petrovic, and “The Diesel” Shaquille O’Neal. Agenda groups tip-off the season with Superhero versions of George “Iceman” Gervin, Manu Ginobili, and Tacko Fall.
Also, Age of Heroes will feature a level 1 reward LeBron James card. This evolution card will have weekly agenda groups that unlock a Superhero card at the beginning and end of the season. Players will have the opportunity to build their own Sapphire King James into a Diamond.
Lastly, All-Star Weekend themed cards will be available in the Season Rewards. Memorable performers Hamidou Diallo, Joe Harris, Buddy Hield, and Mark Price are among those featured.
His Airness’ “Last Shot” is the signature challenge in NBA 2K21 MyTeam Season 5. Players who complete the challenge earn a Diamond Jordan shoe and Hall of Fame badge for their lineup. Any MJ card can be used to compete in the challenge. Those without one can grab his Season of Giving card by using the locker code JORDAN-LAST-SHOT. This card can also be boosted with its new Dynamic Duo, Sapphire Derrick Rose.
