How to Unlock Batista in WWE 2K22

You can unlock Batista by beating him in a Showcase match, while you would also have to complete all the thirteen different objectives to do so. These objectives are pretty much straightforward apart from one or two which might be a little challenging, so getting them right won’t be an issue for you. Although, if you are having trouble difficulties figuring out how to complete the objectives, you can pause the game and take a look at the detailed objectives and how to complete the current objectives, which make it a little easier for newer players.

After completing the final objective, you will be able to unlock Batista along with his alternate costume. A new version of the Rey Mysterio from Smackdown 2009 will also be unlocked along with it. Completing all thirteen objectives is the main requirement for unlocking the special bonus showcase match as well.
