A power forward is not all about offense, but also about defense. NBA 2K20 allows you to play with the attributes and come up with an unstoppable elite (way more appreciated than the centre build, the point guard build or the shooting guard build). Your options are countless, but then, what are the best NBA 2K20 power forward builds? What attributes do you have to look for?
Creating the glass cleaning lockdown
The glass cleaning lockdown is one of the best NBA 2K20 power forward builds and allows you to grab misses and start counterattacks or perhaps come up with a powerful dunk.
The build creation involves skill breakdown #10, physical profile #5, balanced and rebounding or defending. In terms of physical attributes, go for the following:
- Weight – 260 pounds
- Height – 6’11”
- Wingspan – 93 inches
Choose the Rim Protecting Takeover and you are set for this stage.
The potential of this build makes a player that can dominate on both ends of the court. Go for 95 in blocks and rebounding, as well as in standing dunk. Maximize the top four finishing options, then the shooting attributes. In defense and rebounding, maximize everything, except for perimeter defense and steal.
There are 48 badge upgrades (some of them via the Neighborhood) to fulfill the capabilities of this build, but also to tweak some of its minuses.
- HOF badges – Intimidator, Rebound Chaser, Brick Wall, Rim Protector
- Gold badges – Interceptor, Contact Finisher, Relentless Finisher, Box, Worm, Pick N Roller
- Silver badges – Pick Pocket, Fancy Footwork, Catch N Shoot, Post Move Lockdown, Put-Back Boss
- Bronze badges – Tireless Defender, Pick & Popper, Dropstepper
Reaching a balanced NBA 2K20 power forward build
The point behind a balanced and powerful power forward is to go for finishing and playmaking – the chart with lots of blue and yellow, similar to the small forward build. When it comes to the physical profile, you do not need strength. Choose the profile with lots of vertical and agility, but with little strength.
Go to the attributes and target everything in finishing. Everything – apart from the standing dunk – should go as high as possible. The same goes for shooting – everything should be maximized, apart from the three point shot.
Move on to playmaking and boost post moves and pass accuracy. A few points can go to ball handle, but this is it. As for defense, maximize defensive and offensive rebound, not to mention block. The interior defense should get high too, but not maximized.
Physical attributes go like this:
- Weight – 250 pounds
- Height – 6’11”
- Wingspan – 90 inches
For the Takeover, choose Playmaker.
Badges are quite diversified too and will complement this build. Some of them must be upgraded with VC though.
- HOF badges – Relentless Finisher, Finisher, Post Spin Technician, Quick First Step, Box, Rebound Chaser
- Gold badges – Steady Shooter, Worm
- Silver badges – Dropstepper, Putback Boss, Deep Hooks, Lob City Finisher, Deadeye, Catch & Shoot, Deep Fades, Dream Shake, Downhill, Unpluckable
- Bronze badges – Pass Fake Maestro
These are probably the best NBA 2K20 power forward builds out there. The balanced build will ensure a balanced play maker that can keep an eye on everything on the court. It will always be present everywhere, so it can provide good coverage. The glass cleaning lockdown build might be a bit better though, as you will succeed regardless of the position. You will get a top player in both defense and offense. Do not forget to check our awesome compilation of the latest and working nba 2k20 locker codes.
