Power-Ups in WWE 2K Battlegrounds are a special feature that you can use during a match to get an advantage. 

Each Superstar can take 3 Power-Ups in a match, and these can include things such as refilling your health, having unblockable hits, setting your fists on fire, causing an earthquake, and many more over-the-top visual effects.

These Arcade-style Power-Ups can give you different ways to play, offering extra excitement and an additional dimension of strategy that can quickly change the direction of a match.

In this guide, we'll go through how to equip power-ups, how to use them, and the full list of all the 18 Power-Ups available in the game.

Power-Ups Tiers

In WWE 2K Battlegrounds there are 18 Power-Ups available, which are classified into 3 tiers.

The higher the tier, the more powerful the Power-Up.

How To Unlock Power-Ups in WWE 2K Battlegrounds

You can unlock all the Power-Ups by playing through the Campaign Mode.

Each Power-Up can also be upgraded through 3 levels.

You can use the Battle Bucks to level them up. Battle Bucks are earned by simply playing the game.

Equipping Power-Ups

Before starting the match, in the Superstar Selection Screen, you can pick which power-ups you want to go into battle with.

You can equip your Superstar with one power-up per tier, for a total of 3 Power-Ups per match.

How to Use Power-Ups in WWE 2K Battlegrounds

WWE 2K Battlegrounds has a Power-Up Bar. This is located in the HUD at the bottom of the screen, where you can see the icons of 3 power-ups you've chosen.

Power-ups become available to perform when the Power-Up Bar reaches the activation zone. Keep an eye on the bar so you use them at strategic moments. When you use a Power-Up, the bar decreases again.

You can choose to activate a Tier 1 Power-Up or wait for the bar to fill enough to use a Tier 2 or Tier 3 Power-Up.

Each Tier of the Power-Ups in WWE 2K Battlegrounds is performed using the D-Pad:

  • Power-Up Tier 1: left (left)
  • Power-Up Tier 2: up (up)
  • Power-Up Tier 3: right (right)

Below you find the full list of all 18 Power-Ups available in WWE 2K Battlegrounds, including their respective effects and levels.

You can unlock power-ups by playing the Campaign Mode, and you can upgrade them to the next levels by using Battle Bucks.
