Some guides say that you have to pick the correct takeovers to make a replica build work, in our experience that isn’t the case so pick whatever ones you’d prefer. It is possible this changes based on the console (i.e current gen vs. next gen).

This is all the information you need to unlock the Kobe Bryant build. Upon completing the build you will be rewarded with an easter egg showing your player has shades of “Mamba” although an older photo of Kobe will be displayed.

Play Style

Much like the real Bryant, this build is a scoring machine on the inside and if coupled with smart shot-taking could lead to some high-percentage shooting games. Don’t underestimate the passing ability of the build either, high assist numbers should be the norm.
