NBA 2K21 VC Not Working - Pre-Order Bonus Issue

VC pre-order bonus not working in NBA 2K21 is a bug that has been hitting those that have pre-ordered the Mamba Forever legendary edition of the game. Those that have pre-purchased the legendary edition of NBA 2K21 should get 100,000 VC as a reward, but a ton of people haven’t gotten the promised currency. Fortunately, the developers are aware of the issue and are working to fix it. Plus, there’s a way to fix the VC not working bug in NBA 2K21. That’s exactly what we’ll be discussing in our NBA 2K21 VC Not Working – Pre-Order Bonus Issue guide.

How to Fix VC Not Working Bug in NBA 2K21 Mamba Forever Edition?

To fix the NBA 2K21 Mamba Forever Edition pre-order VC issue, the first step is to go into the MyPlayer animation store. Put a bunch of animations into your cart, and make sure to include the free ones. Then, go to checkout and remove all animations that cost VC. Complete your purchase. It’ll take a few moments to load, but it will connect with the servers, and that should make your 100,000 VC appear. It’s a fairly simple solution, if somewhat unorthodox. Desperate times call for desperate measures, though.

That said, I do have to mention that this method doesn’t necessarily work for everybody. If you follow these steps, and don’t get your 100k VC, you’ll have to wait for 2K to roll out a patch that’ll solve this mess. Luckily, the developers are very well aware of the problem, and have announced on Twitter that they’re working on a solution. Don’t worry, your bonuses are safe, they’re not gone. Hopefully, they’ll take care of it soon. So, if you don’t want to mess around with the animation store, you can just wait it out. It’s worth giving a shot, though, if you’re impatient.

      That happened to me too. My friend said that he read somewhere that they think we might get it between 24 and 35 hours of owning the game. I’m nit sure if it’s true but at least it something to look forward to.

    Purchased Mamba forever bonus content and the codes don’t work and are invalid. This is not the first time this has happened. Does anyone know if there is a fix coming or do we need to request new codes.
