Achievement Guide and Road Map
Created By: XD41INUYASHA
Thanks For your help and ideas:
-Estimated achievement difficulty: 5/10
-Approximate time to 1000G: 30+ hours, depending on skill for master achievement.
-Missable achievements: Yes, Proving grounds
-Does Difficulty affect achievements: Yes
-Glitchy Achievements: none so far
-Offline: 32 (930 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/f...isc/g-icon.gif)
-Online: 8 (70 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/f...isc/g-icon.gif; In The Zone, I. Am. Iron Man., Intercept & Pursue, Recommended, Paparazzi, I'm Going To Hollywood!, King of the Hill, Notorious)
This game is much like the first (aggravating at first), but once u get the hang of things, it will go much easier and be much more enjoyable. Very good upgrading and customization. Alright so the achievements look hard, but in all reality they are easy if you follow my guide. Only reason I even put a 5 for difficulty is because of the 10 hours online achievement, King of the Hill, and the mastering all maps. Time consuming mostly. Alright this is my first guide. I have never made one, but I have great strategy's to help you and saw no guide up. I no my grammar is bad, but I type at a speed of 150 words a min, So i make errors quite often (sorry ahead of time). So I hope this helps.
When you start career, remember to win the first tutorial when you are in the GTR. If you are about to lose, dashboard immediately or you will miss your "proving grounds" achievement. This game isn't easy, even on easy. If you get stuck, don't stress about it, just move on to another race. The rivals are very difficult, so i would insist doing every race you can besides the rival ones. Just focus on leveling up and earning cash. Then when you have completed everything and are filthy rich. Go back and buy all the fastest cars to help with the rivals. A thing to keep in mind, if the AI are too fast. Use a CRAPPY vehicle, for example: Nissan 240SX for the retro japan, with NO UPGRADES. The slower vehicle you have, the slower vehicle they have, and also for some reason the AI are LOTS easier.
Online should be after career, the achievement "King of The Hill" is hard! This one cannot be boosted. You have to win 6 matches in a row in "Driver Duel Championship" gametype. The reason you should do career first is for the practice, and the fact not as many people will be on 2 weeks from now do to the games aggravation. All the other ones can be boosted either in ranked by finding each-others sessions, or in private.
3 Clean up
By now you should only be missing a few achievements like " A Drivers Battle" by using the helmet cam and the "License" achievements. Just Follow my steps below for each one, don't worry because none are missable. Over all a 1000:gsicon: to be proud of.

Get to level 20
Alright, you should get this one by the time you finish career or halfway if you got limited edition with the day one double XP. But if you want it fast do this:
Go to Career, then on the 3rd tab select Drifting, go to the "Amateur League showdown" and repeat the first stage over and over. You can bank in 2-3k a race.
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...8/5-h6Hwo=.jpg Road To Glory 10:gsicon:
Beat your First Rival
Just beat your first rival, Its Vaughn Gittin Jr. Its In the Drift option on the 3rd tab, all the way at the bottom. An event called the "Final Slide" will ask you to get 20 drift podium finishes before unlocking. There are 4 tracks you will have to do. The last one is annoying. You need to use a fast car like an exotic with works conversion because you need SPEED! On the last turn just drift as long as possible even if it means hitting a wall. That turn will give you a lot of points. Try to get 1st on the first 3 tracks and you can afford 3rd place on the last one.

Completed an event purely from helmet cam
Alright easy as pie! Quickest way, Go to Drift on 3rd tab, go to "Drifters Smokem Tour", and pick the map "Miyatomi" (Make sure your in helmet cam!). Their are two, make sure you can see the Helmets side. Then do the race and once u finish, Achievement unlocked. But if it doesn't then just replay. Sometimes if you start without already being in the correct cam, it wont unlock.

This one can be done on the same event 75 times :) (load off our shoulders). Just go to options on the main menu and select gameplay, then select hard and remember to SAVE! Do not just back out or it will not stay on hard. What I did was go to drifting, and select " Drifters Smokem Tour", then select the Miyatomi track, and did it 75 times. You have to make 1st place for it to count. Even an amateur drifter can make 1st on this every time with some practice. Get a pen and paper and keep tally, do to the fact there is no way to keep track of how many you have. If you absolutely suck at drifting, just pick any level you can do, and do it over and over again.

Work on the grammar.
not here to teach everyone reading and writing skills. i no my writing is bad. But im just here to help others that need it.
I thought the point of a "guide" was to explain the best ways possible the get the achievements? All your doing is explaining what you have to do to get them, which, they are pretty self-explanatory anyways. I think I'll wait for someone else to put up a REAL guide.
this guide is for real gamers. not noobs that need me to hold there hand through self explanatory achievements. only certain achievements like winning 75 events on hard need a short cut and/or strategy. if you seriously need me to explain in further detail on how to host a room and invite someone to boost with, or how to turn correctly on every corner to master them. then you seriously are a horrible gamer.
On the easy self explanatory achievements, i just show everyone where to go and/or to look to keep track of what they need or where the specific race is located. So children please stop crying. Gotta grow up and leave your mommy sometime. If you dont like my strategy or help. leave the forum and shut up. Im not even close to finishing.
Alright children then i will do as you say. Okay this is how u boost.
Step one: Go to xbox live on main menu
Step two: select create
Step three: Hit dashboard button
Step four: find friend
okay intermission so you can go get your bottle with your mommys breast milk if your thirsty
step five: press X when they are highlighted to invite
Step six: start match and choice who wins first.
Step seven: Repeat steps 1 through 5
Step eight: choice the next person who wins.
GET OFF MY POST YOU 5 YEAR OLDS
This isn't really a guide if you're not even going to list the car manufacturers for the achievement "Leno would be proud". A guide is supposed to be 'Noob Friendly', not just for so called "Real Gamers".
For proving ground you must win in the second event of the game (the race with the Nissan GT-R) and for grass roots you have to complete the drift tutorial. For im going to hollywood all you have to do is win the first round of online driver duel (I won my first race so you may be able to lose it and still get chievo, but that conflicts with the name) Also, american idol reference in a NFS game... wtf?
Guys give him a chance, the main aim for him was to help players that need it.
Why dont you guys write a private message to him offering help with the gramma if you can do it better. Once a person starts writing things in the Forum here, more players join by writing what is bad about it but nobody helps making it better. I have helped by alot of games over the past couple of years, but because my knowledge not beeing good enough for a guide and never learning the language (gramma), I will never write a guide seeing nobody wants to help. Start helping players and everybody will notice that guides get better and better.
Anyway, I will start: Good Guide for a start, if you need some info for some achievements let me know, I will help if I can. Sorry I cant help on the gramma for for anything else you are welcomed to message me.
Keep up the good work, It will get better.
I agree. Making one ain't easy. How bout you try huh? Just sayin', I can't
I'll do all those misc and online chevos this weekend and then concentrate on my career. Easier that way imo
Cant wait for an updated guide when you get more info to impove it. Thanks
But, if you are offering we can make one together
Lone Soldier x7
erm... I see no guides for this game from you so why dont you kindly F*** off.
Oh and 41inuyasha, thanks for starting a guide, I always like a guide to refer to, even a work in progress one.
Also, this thread is a perfect example of why I don't try my own. Getting flamed for poor grammar (seriously?) and because it's vague at first. When I could be spending time with my girlfriend and son or even my XBOX or my mates, hell I could even be working overtime for extra cash and this is the thanks I would get. Not worth it but Kudos to those who do.
Anyone that relys on a guide for every achievement should just put your controller away. This guide is self explanatory, because the achievements are!!! Theres no need for one very basic and anyone with common sense can figure it out well at least anyone. On that note nice guide thus far
As in the first Shift game can one start a 20 lap race on the Miyatomi (spelling) track to rack up XP from overtaking, etc? Will it still work faster for XP levelling versus the drifting suggestion?
Nah, Im better at playing than writing a guide :)
anyone with ideas or strategys
alright im awake once again. Thanks for the backup everyone. Alright so i know how to get all these achievements but i want to find ways to smooth the edges. So the king of the hill achievement i need ideas on how people can get it. becuase its tuff. Can anyone confirm if you dashboard before you loose, that you will not get knocked down back to the qualifying round.
If anyone can figure this out just post or send PM. I will give you full credit in the guide.
10 characters blah.
who gives a shite about the grammar hes doing a guide to help us all out, hes not doin an english exam is he, and its all understandable so no problem for us normal non anal ppl.
All in all, this game is a very easy 1000G.
Thanks for this, looking forward to getting this tomorrow (uk release date)
$10 mil is kinda alot.. I think the prize money will help alot
