Achievement Guide and Roadmap

Roadmap

COPYRIGHT/RIGHTS OF USE:
This Roadmap may not be used without written permission by either the author or website admins. This guide has been put together for x360a and should not be used without permission.

Overview:

-Estimated achievement difficulty: 7/10
-Offline: 32 (845)
-Online: 4 (155)
-Approximate amount of time to 1000: 30-50 hours
-Minimum number of playthroughs needed: 1 (If you use the Extreme mode glitch)
-Number of missable achievements: None
-Do cheat codes disable achievements?: No Cheats
-Does difficulty affect achievements?: Yes (only Win at Winning though)
-Glitchy achievements: 1 can be. King for a Day didn't unlock immediately. Fix in the guide though
-Unobtainable achievements: None (unless you don't have online pass)
-Extra equipment needed? : Online pass required for some achievements

Introduction:

Need for Speed: The Run is in the style on the cannonball run in which racers drive across America to compete for first place, stopping at set checkpoints. At certain stages a number are eliminated. The race is from San Francisco to New York. Most of the achievements can be done in around 20 hours, but getting to level 30 will be a bit of a grind.

The Run Mode:

The Run mode is very straight forward. Playthrough on whichever difficulty you prefer. Once you complete this you will unlock Extreme difficulty and can either go back through it again or just play the last stage to get this. You will also need to beat a friends score for another achievement here.

Challenge Mode:

Challenge mode is fairly easy in the beginning and gradually gets harder as you progress each one. I would recommend playing through The Run mode first as this unlocks more challenges and I would also play some multiplayer to unlock more cars as this will make it easier. Again you will need to beat a friends score to get an achievement here.

Multiplayer:

The multiplayer is fairly straight forward. You will need to complete solo and group objectives to unlock new playlists and get some achievements. The most difficult achievement here is getting Bonus Wheel as it requires the bonus wheel at the end of a session to land on a set slot and then on you coming first within the next session. Just needs a bit of practise/luck to get it done.

Mop Up:

Once you have completed the 3 sections I mentioned above, there will most likely only be leveling left (unless you haven't done Current Events and Show Off which can be done at any stage). Leveling will require some dedication. By this stage I was at level 20 so had the big grind to get to 30. There are threads on leveling with advice under Legendary.

Conclusion:

The game is not too difficult overall. The main difficulty is just a few challenges and one online achievement. There are some forum posts up for the more difficult challenges if you are still stuck at this stage. Good luck

The Run Mode:

Welcome to The Run 25 Complete Stage 1

This is story related and can not be missed. Difficulty does not matter. Select The Run from the main menu and then start new to begin this.

Walk in the Park 25 Complete Stage 2

This is story related and can not be missed. Difficulty does not matter.

Vegas Baby! 25 Complete Stage 3

This is story related and can not be missed. Difficulty does not matter.

Cop Out 25 Complete Stage 4

This is story related and can not be missed. Difficulty does not matter.

Mr. Plow 25 Complete Stage 5

This is story related and can not be missed. Difficulty does not matter.

Thunder Road 25 Complete Stage 6

This is story related and can not be missed. Difficulty does not matter.

The Windy City 50 Complete Stage 7

This is story related and can not be missed. Difficulty does not matter.

Got to the Chopper 50 Complete Stage 8

This is story related and can not be missed. Difficulty does not matter.

Hot Pursuit 50 Complete Stage 9

This is story related and can not be missed. Difficulty does not matter.

I Heart NY 50 Complete Stage 10

This is story related and can not be missed. Difficulty does not matter.

Coast to Coast 50 Complete The Run on any difficulty

This is story related and can not be missed. You will unlock this at the same time as I Heart NY when you complete stage 10.

Win at Winning 30 Play through The Run on Extreme Difficulty

Extreme is not available from the beginning. You must complete the game on any difficulty setting to unlock it. You can then either replay the whole story on extreme or the easier method is go to Stage Select within the The Run menu and select Stage 10. Playthrough this on whatever difficulty until you get to the last race. Now pause the game and select Gameplay settings and change the difficulty to Extreme. This will restart the race. Complete the race and this unlocks.

King for a Day 25 Become a Stage Leader in The Run (fastest time posted)

Whilst playing through The Run you will see a list of your friends scores. You have to beat the overall time that your top friend has set within any 1 stage to get this. If you do not have any friends playing this then either find one in the achievement trading thread or use a second profile (with gold account) on your own console and friend it. Set a time on any stage with that profile and then beat the time with your main profile. I beat my friends stage score and this didn't pop. I had to quit out and go into Stage Select under The Run menu to get it to unlock

It has been reported by DJ SatanUK that the friends profile has to be a gold account for it to put the time on the Autolog.

Drive Hard with a Vengeance: McLaren F1 or Sesto Elemento (Teh Phantomz recommended)
Live Free or Drive Hard: Porsche 918 RSR or Sesto Elemento (Teh Phantomz recommended)
The Final Event: McLaren F1

Multiplayer:


All for one 15 Complete a Group Objective

See One for All achievement for information on this.

One for all 50 Complete 5 Group Objectives

Within the Xbox Live menu you can press to Create a Playgroup. With this you need to invite a friend. You can create a group of up to 4 (including you). You will then get a group objective to aim for. Complete 5 of these to get the achievement.

Choices... 15 Complete 15 online objectives and unlock all Playlists

When you go into Xbox Live mode you can select a few playlists. Within each of these is a list of objectives. You get a small selection at one time to aim for. When you complete one of them it will usually unlock a new one to aim for. Complete 15 of these over a mix of any playlists you wish and you will get this achievement. The last playlist unlocks when you complete your 15th objective.

Bonus Wheel 75 Win this Bonus Wheel reward in Multiplayer

When you complete a playlist of races on any online playlist mode you will get to pick the next location of races. Once the votes are done the bonus wheel will spin. At random it may land on "75g achievement for first place session". If you get this then you have to finish first in the session. That means be the highest point scorer by the end of the session, not just in 1 race.

If you tie for first place then all players that are in the tie will unlock it. I unlocked this with 2 other racers. All of us had 50 points to tie first

Leveling:

New Car Smell 15 Reach Driver Level 5

See the Legendary achievement for this

Street Racer 15 Reach Driver Level 10

See the Legendary achievement for this

Professional 15 Reach Driver Level 15

See the Legendary achievement for this

Champion 15 Reach Driver Level 20

See the Legendary achievement for this

Veteran 25 Reach Driver Level 25

See the Legendary achievement for this

Legendary 30 Reach Driver Level 30

By playing through story challenges and multiplayer achievements you should be around level 20. After that comes the grind. You could just play online if you enjoy it enough or find a challenge to grind through. If you choose to play online then try to find someone to group with as you will get more XP for doing Group Objectives.

A couple of videos I have followed for boosting XP quickly are:


There is a forum post where people are giving advice at:
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/f...d.php?t=346753
There are also a few posts on it at:

Very nice, you planning to make a roadmap? That would be helpful.

Doesn't really need a roadmap. It's basically "play the game". The only issue is the difficult ones like East Coast Gold and the Bonus Wheel achievie.

Will look at doing a roadmap once I have finished the game. I don't know full difficulty or timing yet as I have more to play.

Tonight I will start working on my challenges. I will post up the cars I use to get Gold in each race which should help.

Racing games seem to be the worst for people doing guides so thought I would write up what I could. Any input from people is welcome to get more information in here

That can be said for many games no need for a roadmap just "Play the game" no, no matter the type of game roadmaps help. The main thing I want to know is the difficulty out of 10 and how many hours I will need to sink into this to get 1000g.

So far I can tell you completing The Run mode took around 7-8 hours. Just finished online achievements last night in around 3-4 hours. Challenge mode I am estimating 7-8 hours again as it is just the same tracks as The Run mode. Not sure on the leveling front. I have not experienced much difficulty yet

I only need three more achievements. The bonus wheel achievement is not hard at all. The people who say that are probably the people who get owned in online. The leveling is a pain in the you know what. You can get like 2,000 XP and the bar will barely move. The hardest achievement for me is the east coast gold. One of the races in their is ridiculously hard.

Apologies for the lack of updates the past few days. Hopefully finish up challenges soon. If anyone has extra input on these then let me know. I will add other cars to the list if people let me know what they used for the challenges. Credit will be given

Porsche Attack- 918 RSR

Lost Serpent Pass- Sesto Elemento

Panic Attack-Pagani Zonda Cinque

The Jersey Double Back-Sesto Elemento

The Situation-Sesto Elemento

Drive Hard- Audi R8 V10

Drive Hard with a Vengeance- Sesto Elemento

Live Free or Drive Hard- Sesto Elemento

The Final Event- Mclaren F1

Guess it doesn't help people since the Sesto Elemento, you have to be level 30 or buy it for 240 MSP but it makes it easier.

Getting to level 30 is taking forever.

Doing Drive Hard over and over works assuming the traffic is friendly, but it's just a drag. Leave it to EA to make you grind out the last several levels.

I haven't set a difficulty yet. I haven't tried with anything other than the Porsche so couldn't say any other way. Maybe playing multiplayer first to unlock the Porsche is the better option there or getting to level 30 and then coming back to do that as the final challenge

just a question, i've had this game for a while now and haven't played yet. and I read the achievement guide where it says that if you don't want to play in Extreme a second time there is a glitch to bypass that.

has the glitch been patched yet? cause if so I won't update the game until i get that achievement.

i would not call it a glitch.

All you have to do is race stage 10 till the last race on easy or normal or whatever you like and then when the last race starts pause and set under gameplay the difficulty to extreme.

Lvl will restart and you have to beat the last race and youre done with extreme.

Just a note on the "King For A Day" and the "What Else You Got" achievements. This might sound obvious but if you are using a second profile on your console, it has to be another Gold account.

I've just wasted half an hour watching unskippable cut scenes and the game glitching out on me to find out that if you are not on Gold you cannot load any scores up to Autolog. Gold isn't just for playing online.

I completely didn't realise until just now but I have completed Need for Speed: The Run and I haven't earned a single achievement?! It isn't on my games list to check achievements either WTF?! It also disconnects me from XBL and cannot connect while the game is running

Thanks for that. I have updated the guide to state this. This would affect players with friends using a silver account also.
