WWE 2K22 Patch 1.06 Brings Welcome Updates to Online Play, Graphics, My Rise, and More

WWE 2K22 is off to quite the start and has received positive reviews since releases earlier this month. The game should get even better thanks to a new Patch, specifically Patch Update 1.06, which brings fixes and updates to general gameplay, online play, My Faction, MyRise, the Creation Suite, graphics, and more. There are quite a few gameplay improvements regarding moves involving weapons, the ropes, and Tag Team matches, and there are also welcome updates to textures, hair, skin, and character likenesses regarding Superstars, but the changes also extend to My Rise and My Faction.

Sometimes the cutscenes and dialogue in My Rise can be a bit rough, and various cutscenes in My Rise will see some improvement thanks to the patch. As for My Faction, standalone nWo cards have been added and a weapon baiting exploit has been addressed, so hopefully, fans of both modes will notice the changes.
