You will be blasting your opponents with Power-ups and drifting around corners like never before. From racing Audi's famous R8 to Chevy's all new Camaro SS. You will have a huge arsenal of vehicles to choose from to rule the road.
Breakdown: The best way to go through the single player portion is by playing as stated below. If you want to do it all in one playtrough, then set your difficulty to hard. While playing on hard, if you have any trouble beating a certain race, choose a easier difficulty and complete it. If you are ever unsure of your progress for any achievement, go to the stickers section and it will give you a detailed overview of what else you need to complete for any specific achievement.
Some achievements progression can be worked on in Single Player and Multiplayer. Those are listed below:
Sharp Shooter, Outta my way!, Furiously fast, Shocking, It's a trap!, Medic!, You can't touch this, Incoming!
Career: Single Player
Step 1- Playtrough on easy and getting all lights. You will want to start on easy and just play through the single player. Earn as many lights as possible. If you are having trouble with a certain race, continue on and come back later once you have unlocked some better and faster car(s). You want to come in first on all races, complete all Fan Runs, and complete all Fan Targets. There are a total of 450 lights to be earned in the entire career.
Step 2 - Come in first on all races on Hard difficulty Once you have completed all the races and earned all 450 Primary and Secondary Lights. Play through each race on Hard and come in first place. You don't need to redo the Fan Targets and Fan Runs again on hard. Only coming in first on each race and meeting the required time and score in the other events. This won't come easy as some events will take a lot of patience and skill to complete.
If you're connected to Xbox Live you should also be able to get the following achievements:
Friends make better enemies
Xbox Live: Completing everything online will take you anywhere from 20-30 hours.
Online you will be going for the following achievements:
For your consideration
This time it's personal
Motor Mash King
This step will take quite a while however if you don't want to spend long hours a day playing Blur online, you can play until you get all your Daily Challenge's completed again and then take a break. If your looking to win races then Skirmish is an easier playlist. However, if your looking for more Fan points, I recommend picking powered up racing so you have more targets for your power ups which can net you large amounts of points.
Clean up: For this step you can finish any of the mastering achievements that you missed as well as the following misc achievements that you might not have yet:
I must break you
There are more you can miss, however, it's not likely you will miss them.
Conclusion: Blur is definitely an amazing racing game, by far the best for 2010. The achievement list is pretty straightforward and the stickers menu made keeping track of your progress a lot easier. Gunning for 1000 will take a while, around 50+ hours however will be a fun time spent if your into Mario Kart madness
[x360a would like to thank SideDish120 for this road map]
Reach the Fan Target in a race. Fan Targets are reaching a set amount or target amount of fans in a single race. Each race in the event list has a set criteria for the Fan Target you must reach. You earn fans from almost everything you do, shooting Power-ups, ramming opponents, drifting, completing Fan Runs, dominating a certain portion of a race, etc.
Wreck a car by lowering it's entire health bar shown above the vehicle. This will come naturally through playing the single player. The easiest place to do this is in the “Destruction” game type.

Fan Runs are first started during a race where you find a bouncing orange square with an arrow inside of it. This begins the Fan Run, you will start going through orange gates. The closer you are to the final green gate, it will make a higher note chime once you go through the gate. You must pass through each gate until you reach the final green gate. You will fail a Fan Run if you run out of time or miss a gate.
The easiest Power-up to evade or destroy are Shunts. They are the red orb that follows your car until it hits you. You can either hit it while it is near you with a Mine, Reverse Shunt, Reverse Bolts, or a Barge when it is about to hit your car. To shoot Shunt/Bolt power-ups behind you, you hold the down and shoot with .
Shannon is the first One-on-One boss you face in the Proving Grounds event. All these Demands must be meet in the Proving Grounds event. To reach Shannon you must complete the following:
Land 80 offensive Power-ups
Offensive Power-ups are Shunts/Bolts/Mines/Shock/Barge. Anything that does damage to another opponent if it hits them is a offensive Power-up. This is cumulative and you just have to reach 80 over multiple races.

Just pass 5 events in this stage. As long as it's 1st-3rd place you pass the stage.
You face Shannon in her Renault R230 F1 Team R26. This car has a very low amount of health but is quite fast. The easiest way to beat her to to stick behind her and just keep hitting her car with offensive Power-ups (Shunt, Bolt, Barge, Shock, Mine) until her car is wrecked.
The easiest rival to wreck is Shannon in her first event, she has a low amount of health and can be wrecked relatively quickly. Just stay behind her and go for the easy Power-up pick ups, keep hitting her with Shunts and Bolt Power-ups and she will be wrecked in no time. You can try this on any One-on-One race, even if you have already completed it.

Shield against 3 Power-ups
Once you pick up a Shield Power-up wait for Shunts to start coming at you (Red bar starts flashing at bottom of screen). Once you see the Red Bar and hear the noise put up your Shield, your Shield will take the hit and not damage your car. Repeat 3 times.
Evade 3 Shock fields
A Shock field consist of 3 Shock Domes, evade all 3 Domes and it will count as evading a Shock Field.
Collect 40 Stopwatches.
Stopwatches are found in Checkpoint races, they look like power-ups and have a Stopwatch outline the the center of them. Each Stopwatch adds 2 seconds to your total time.
Pass event 5 with 14 seconds left.
Event 5 is a checkpoint race in the LA Docks. The best way to complete this is to just come in first place and choosing a grippy car with good acceleration.
Khan races a Foose Stallion Ford Mustang, a extremely quick and well balanced car. The best way to take on this race is by just going the two laps, it is a relatively short track. Don't stay behind him too much because he will bombard you with attacks. Don't bother attacking him much because he has an upgraded Shield mod. Get in front and just pick up Shields, he will fall behind relatively quickly.
These can be completed in Single Player or Multiplayer.
Bolt 50 Incoming Power-Ups
To Bolt Power-ups coming at you, you shoot the Bolt Power-up behind you by holding in the down direction, then shooting each Bolt with the at the Power-up. The easiest Power-up to Bolt is the Shunt Power-up.
Hit 3 different cars from a single Bolt Power-up
Each Bolt Power-up gives you three missile shots, unless you use the Overbolt mod that you get from defeating Shannon in her One-on-One in "Proving Grounds", giving you four Bolt shots from one Power-up. Take your time and make sure you have a shot for a different car every time. If you miss, you will have a extra shot from her mod.
Fire all 4 Bolts from a Power-up into any car
To fire 4 Bolts you must have Shannon's Overbolt mod by beating her One-on-One in "Proving Grounds". While a car is straight ahead of you, rapidly shoot the Bolts at the opponents car. All 4 must hit the car, a confirmation of "Fully Bolted" will show up if you hit the opponent with all the Bolts.
Fire 3 Bolts from a Power-up and wreck a car
When a car is in the Red Health Bar, shoot 3 Bolts rapidly at them. You don't have to do the damage to get it into the critical red zone. You will wreck many cars with Bolt Power-ups and will eventually get this through natural progression.
Rhymers stage is called “Fan Favorite” and is the 3rd Event Series in the single player. To unlock Rhymer in his challenge you must complete the following in Event 3.
Complete 5 Fan Demands
Fan Demands are found on Races, they have a fan outline and look like Power-ups. After you collect the Fan Demand you will be given something to do with a Power-up. (Example: Reach 150mph and you will get a Nitro Power-up to use.)
Complete 2 Fan Runs
Fan Runs are just like Fan Demands, except you must go through gates. Fan Runs look like Power-ups with a Arrow pointing up inside them. Go through all the gates until you reach the final gate that is green instead of orange, this will be one Fan Run. If you miss a gate or run out of time, you will fail the Fan Run and can try again on your next lap.
Complete 4 Fan Targets
Fan Targets are reaching a certain fan criteria in races. Some may require to get 900 and some may take 2200. Refer to 'Getting into the swing of things'for some tips.
Win event 5 with 1 'X5' fan combo
You must complete the Barcelona Garcia Race, shoot/evade/destroy your opponents and come in first place. In the upper right hand corner of your screen is a Fan with a heart, the heart is the Combo meter and will show a number of your current combo. A easy way to get a x5 combo is by grabbing 3 offensive Power-ups that have multiple shots (Bolt and Shock). Stay behind the pack and start unloading every offensive Power-up you find. This should come with little to no effort.
The best way to beat Rhymer in his Camaro SS is to just get in front of him. Once in front just look for the Nitro Power-ups. He isn't too aggressive and leaves big openings for you to pass him. Stay ahead and complete the 2 laps, giving you an easy win.
These can be completed in Single Player or Multiplayer.
Barge 250 cars
When you have a Barge Power-up, have a opponent near you and then use the Barge. You can barge more then one car with a Power-up, as long as they are in the blast radius. Do this a total of 250 times and this will be completed.
Barge 3 cars at once
Pick up a Barge Power-up, and wait until you see a cluster of opponents and use your Power-up. To confirm you hit 3 opponents with the barge it will say "Barged x3" on your screen.
Barge someone into water or off a cliff
The easiest place to do this is on the LA Docks level, once you get near the shipyard follow the right side and it will put you on the waterside of the street. Have a opponent to your left and use a Barge to hit your opponent into the water.
Barge an incoming attack
Wait until a Shunt is coming at your car, when it is about to hit your car use your Barge and it will cancel out the shunt coming at you.
While using a Nitro Power-up, pass opponents and each opponent you pass during Nitro counts as a overtake. Be wary about being too close to them, they could move in front of you and you won't get the overtake, as well as giving them a nitro jam in the back so they can take off.
Airbrake Rift 3 or more cars at once
To Airbrake Rift you must have a Nitro Power-up, push down on the and use the Nitro Power-up. A total of 3 cars must hit your pile up that you start with Power-up. The best time to do this is at a tight corner where players usually ram head finish into the wall or preferably at the beginning of a race before anyone can create any gaps between you.
In first use 3 airbrakes and go on to win a Race
This is better done on single player, go into career mode on Easy, choose an event and get the 3 Nitro power-ups and use them all when you see the finish line in sight.
Nitro and land a Reverse Bolt into another car
While using a Nitro Power-up, have a Bolt power-up ready and shoot it behind you while pressing down on the . Land one Bolt from the Power-up while using Nitro will count. This can easily be done on straightaways whether your ahead of not, if your behind them just Nitro in front and use all 3 of your Bolts, one is sure to hit.
Stop and get a good view of the fireworks in Brighton. Visit www.blurgame.com for more info
(Event: Fan Favorite - Race #3 "Brighton - Coastal Cruise") Select a Hummer H2 (You earn the H2 after you beat Drayke's One-on-One in the Crash and Burn event). Let everyone get ahead of you so they don't mess you up. Place yourself in the picture below with the Fireworks in the center of your screen clearly visible.
Drive a smoking car through the oilfield in Amboy
(Event: Proving Grounds - Race #5 "Amboy - Badlands Traverse") At the start of the race wait a little and let everyone drive off. Pick up Mine Power-ups and shoot them in front of you by pushing forward on the and shooting with the . Get your car into the orange - red critical health bar. Many people unlock this by driving a lap once you reach the orange - red in you health bar without getting wrecked. It doesn't matter where the lap begins, once your car starts smoking black, that's when the lap begins. The picture below is a general area of where it unlocks for many.
Nitro through the Amboy gas station
(Event: Proving Grounds - Race #2 "Amboy - Route 66") The Amboy gas station is found 2/3 around the track, on the left side of a very long straightaway. Pick up a Nitro at the beginning of the race. After going under the bridge you will take a left, then you will be arriving at a sharp right turn. Stick to the right and there will be a shortcut on your right, take it and you will find the Nitro power-up on the left. Then before you go under the gas station, use your Nitro and this challenge will be checked off.
Nitro Power-up Location
Gas Station Location
Clean Nitro through the Hollywood sign in online Multiplayer
(Multiplayer: "Hollywood Hills - Downtown Vista") Stick to a car with a good amount of grip, it will keep you on the road and stop you from hitting the sign or a wall. Start your Nitro before you hit the start of the Hollywood sign and you should get it after the Nitro ends. If your having trouble getting this, fall back when you have Nitro and try it without the disturbance of any other players.
You find Drayke in the Crash and Burn Stage. To unlock his One-on-One you must complete the following in this stage.
Barge 1 car into the water
The easiest place to do this is on the LA Docks level, once you get near the shipyard follow the right side and it will put you on the waterside of the street. Have a opponent to your left and use a Barge to hit your opponent into the water.
Wreck 100 cars
The best place to Wreck cars is in the Destruction Races, just wreck a total of 100 cars with Bolt Power-ups.
Barge 5 cars
All you have to do is Barge 5 cars. Pick up a Barge Power-up and while a opponent is near you use the Power-up.
Get 6 Lights in event 6
You have to get 6 lights on the Brighton Destruction course. The easiest way to get 6 lights is coming in first and hitting the Fan Gates. If you only come in first and miss the Fan gates, you can retry and just come in third and complete the Fan Run. This will give you a total of 6 lights.
Just wreck a total of 500 cars, this will come naturally as you must retry some events to get all the lights.
Land 100 Longshots in Destruction
Longshots are single Bolts that hit an opponent at a very far distance. To confirm you got a Longshot, it will say, "Longshot +25".
Wreck 50 red cars in Destruction
Red cars are usually Hummers that once they are wrecked, shoot Shunts behind them. Wreck a total of 50 cumulatively for this.
In any Destruction Event earn 5 Lights and land every Bolt
This is by far the most frustrating task in the game. Choose the first destruction event in Proving Grounds on Easy difficulty with any car of your choice, I recommend the Nissan 350Z. Have patience and eventually you'll successfully accomplish this task.
Stopwatch Power-ups are found in Checkpoint races, each Power-up gives you 2 seconds added to your total time.
Earn 5 Lights in a Checkpoint Event without Nitro
Come in first place on a checkpoint event without using Nitro. As easier course to do it on is the Hollywood Hills Checkpoint found in the Double Trouble stage. There are no Nitro Power-ups and only stop watches.
Earn 5 Lights in a Checkpoint Event without Stopwatches
Come in first on a Checkpoint Event without using Stopwatches, only using Nitro Power-ups.
Nitro through every Checkpoint in one Event
As described, Nitro through all the checkpoints in a single event.
You meet Natalya in the 5th stage named “Ruthless Aggression.” To unlock Natalya's One-on-One you must complete the following demands.
Reverse Shunt 5 cars
While a opponent is behind you, shoot a Shunt Power-up behind you by down on the and oressing
Hit multiple cars with 5 barges
While using a Barge Power-up, hit two or more cars with a Barge Power-up 5 times total.
Shock 10 cars
While using a Shock Power-up, your opponents just need to run into 10 Shock Domes all cumulatively.
Complete the Fan Run in event 6
The 6th event in this stage is the Amboy Race.
The best way to go against her is by just picking up Shunt and Bolt Power-ups and keep attacking her. If you are behind her she won't attack to much unless you are in front of her, she can be quite merciless.
You meet Talon in the Midas Touch event series. To unlock his One-on-One, complete the following demands:
Drift a total of 1,500 meters
You must drift a total of 1,500 meters cumulatively. Choose a car that is made for drifting and stay behind the pack. Drifting is done by making the back end of your car come out farther (at a angle/sideways) then it needs to be, but being in control of the car in the turn. Come into a corner at a higher speed and hit to handbrake, this will cause your cars back end to come out and start a drift.
Destroy 4 Power-ups
You destroy Power-ups by using a Power-up that counteracts it. The easiest Power-ups to destroy that are coming at you is the Shunt Power-up. Your screen will start flashing red at the bottom telling you that a Shunt is coming at you. When the Shunt is about to hit you or is directly behind your car, shoot an offensive Power-up behind you to destroy the attack. These include Mines, Reverse Shunts, Reverse Bolts, and Barges. To shoot a power-up behind you, press down on the and shoot with .
Execute 4 clean, triple Nitros
To do this you have to use 3 Nitros consecutively one after another without a pause. The easiest place to do these are on the 5th event - "Barcelona Gracia." You can gather 3 Nitros at the beginning of the lap rather easily. As soon as you take the turn into the very long straightaway, mash until you have used all three of your Nitro Power-ups, keeping in a straight line and not hitting a wall. Once you complete this you can just quit the race.
Earn 25 Lights
You earn Lights by completing races and their secondary objectives. Coming in 1st place on a race earns you 5 Base Lights in that race (a circle with B in it). Completing Fan Targets and Fan Runs count as lights. If you come in first place in all races that will give you a total of 30 lights in this event, so reaching 25 shouldn't be to much of a hassle.
Talon drives a Corvette ZR1, one of the fastest cars in the game. The best way to beat this One-on-One is by just completing the two laps. He will only attack if you are behind him. Get in front of him and just keep picking up Nitro Power-ups, he won't be able to keep up to your speed and you will leave him in your dust. If you do pick up Power-ups while you are ahead, shoot them behind you on long straightaways and you may be able to get a hit on him. This will slow him down further, helping you beat this easy, but brutally fast One-on-One.
Mine a total of 250 cars, either shooting Mines in front of you or dropping then behind you. As long as a enemy hits it, it will count as a mining one.
Destroy 50 Mines (Hitting them doesn't count)
Destroying Mines is just like destroying Shunts but usually stationary. You can Bolt and Barge them once you are near them. This may take some time to accomplish but isn't too hard of a task. A good way to do it is while your in last place, look for the Mines other players drop and you can use your power-ups to destroy them while you drive past without the worry of being disrupted by other drivers.
Score 20 Forward Mine Hotshots
A Forward Mine Hotshot is done by shooting a Mine forward in front of a car, the Mine stops at a certain distance ahead and the car runs into the Mine. Repeat 20 times to complete this. To shoot the forward Mine you have to hold up on the while shooting with
This will come naturally while playing, you will be picking up a lot of Repair Power-ups during your races. This is cumulative throughout Single Player and Multiplayer.
Repair on damage critical and just before a Power-up hits
When your car damage is critical (When any power-up that you would take would wreck you) and a Shunt is coming at you, have a repair ready and when it's right near you, repair and once it hits you it will be complete. This will come naturally during racing just to stay alive.
Win a Race on damage critical whilst carrying a repair in Single Player
Come in first place on a race while you are in the light red portion of your health bar while holding a Repair Power-up. (One or two Bolt Power-up hits will wreck you) If your having trouble getting this go into the first event of career mode on Easy, let yourself get pummeled by power-ups, hold Shields with you and that one repair and avoid any Shocks used at all cost.
Win a Race without wrecking but repair more blocks of health than your car has
While playing a race just keep repairing as much as you can whenever you get hurt, then stay ahead of the pack and win the race. Again if your having trouble just do this in career mode on Easy.
In a Race complete a lap without getting hit by any Power-up
Shields can become a big help for this, try and get a far lead from the pack and get in first place. Get a fast car and you shouldn't have much trouble with this.
Power-up hit 5 different cars in Midas Touch Event
You will naturally get this so long as you regularly attack the other cars with power-ups
Hit with every type of Power-up in one Race
You will probably get this naturally however if you want to be sure just let one Shunt hit you, run into one Mine and run into a Shock Dome. When you see an opponent grab the Barge go next to them and wait for them to use it, and lastly stay in front or behind someone with a Bolt
Win 25 Career Races
This will unlock naturally as your progress through the campaign, coming in 1st-3rd place counts as a win.
Fan Demands are found later in the Single Player, they are specific Demands the fans want you to complete. They are found floating around just like Power-ups but have a Fan with a heart over them. They usually want you to do something specific with certain Power-ups. (Ex. Forward Mine x2 - They give you two Mines in your slots and you must complete it by the time the Fan timer has run out.)
Complete 50 Fan Demands
Complete a total of 50 Fan Demands. This will come naturally so long as you take the effort to actually completing the demands.
Complete all Fan Demands in an Event
For this you have to find a race event with Fan Demands in them. Fan Demands start appearing on the 3rd Event series named "Fan Favorite." A fairly easy event to complete all the Fan Demands is the first event found in "Fan Favorite". There are a total of 4 Fan Demands you must complete in a total of 3 laps. I recommend using the Toyota Supra (Smooth) for this. Below are the locations and what you need to do for each of the 4 Fan Demands in this event:
Fan Demand #1 - Shunt Hit x2
Power-ups given: 2 Shunt Power-ups
This Fan Demand is found right after the start of the race. Once you cross the starting line, keep a eye out for the left side. You will find the Fan Demand fairly easily.
How to complete: Keep a opponent in front of you at all times, then shoot both Shunt Power-ups at your opponent. Once they both hit this is complete.
Fan Demand #2 - Drift Bolt Hit
Power-up given: Bolt Power-up
The second Fan Demand is found shortly after you complete the first, you will go down a road and then take a left turn. The Fan Demand is found on the right side of the road about half way down the long straightaway, just before you go under a little bridge with Power-ups under it.
How to complete: At the next upcoming turn, initiate a turn by hitting the handbrake with and turn at a hard angle. This will cause you to drift and be a little sideways. After you are in the drift, shoot your Bolts at the opponents in front of you. Only 1 Bolt needs to hit for it to be complete, not the entire Power-up.
A nice tip is that you can pick up other Bolts while going around the lap, initiate this Fan Demand, and just shoot away until you hit a person near you.
Fan Demand #3 - Nitro Overtake
Power-up given: Nitro Power-up
The location of this Power-up is the easiest to spot and locate of all of them. After the turn that you did for completing Fan Demand #2, you will start going into a long tunnel. This Fan Demand is about 3/4 of the way through the tunnel on the right side.
How to complete: After you started the Fan Demand, just be sure to have opponents around you. Start the Nitro and get into a better position/place then what you were last at. Basically just pass an opponent.
Fan Demand #4 - Nitro Ram
Power-up given: Nitro Power-up
After you take a left out of the tunnel, you will take another left a little bit down the road into a very long straightaway. Stick to the right side and it will be directly ahead of you. Don't go too fast because there is a bump before it and it may send you over or cause you to miss the Fan Demand.
How to complete: Have a car a little bit ahead of you, then start the Nitro. As you are in the Nitro, hit a opponent from behind to complete this demand.
You find this One-on-One in the Double Trouble stage, to reach Ayumi and Harumi's One-on-One you must complete the following demands.
Forward Mine 5 cars
To forward Mine someone, while holding a Mine Power-up, press up on the and fire with the button. The Mine shoots in a straight line. Have a car in front of you and shoot it at them.
Nitro-ram 5 cars
With a Nitro Power-up, have a car in front of you and use the the Nitro. Once you have started using the Nitro, ram the car in front of you. It will say "Nitro Rammed" if done correctly.
Get 10 bonus hits in Destruction
During one of your Destruction events wait until a large group of cars are near each other, aim for the furthest one and hope his recoil creates a chain reaction and kill off the other ones around him.
Wreck 1 car and finish first in Event 6
Event 6 is NY Dumbo Race, just pick up Power-ups and blast Shunts and Bolts at your enemies until you wreck someone. Then once you have push your way to the front and finish first.
This race is more of a One-on-Two rather than a One-on-One. The easiest way is to just fly ahead of them and play defensively. They are very slow drivers and if you just put the lead foot down you will have an easy win.
Whenever you hold the Shield power-up, just use it whenever you see a power-up about to hit you from behind. Do this 150 times, you'll be sure to get it during online play.
Shield 3 or more Power-ups with a single Shield
The best time to do this would be when your in the middle of a large group of players, use your Shield and hope the crossfire comes your way.
Shield 50 incoming close range Power-ups
For this you must use the Shield power-up at the very last second right before the power-up is about to hit you, find the timing and keep using the Shield at that timing and you should get it in no time.
Hold on to a Shield for 1 lap and win the Race
Simply put, take a Shield power-up and just don't use it, you can drive around Shock Domes and use Reserve Shunts or Mines to counter incoming attacks.
All of these requirements will be met so long as you complete every Fan run on each event. Later Fan Runs give you less time to make the next gate so keep your speed up. Also, if you find the path through the gates too difficult to smoothly run through then wait for the enemy A.I's to pull ahead and then start the Fan Run. If you're doing this though make sure you complete the Fan Run on the first lap so you can catch up and get credit for completing it in the end.
You meet Carver in the Loose Cannon Stage, to unlock his One-on-One complete the following demands:
Shield through 3 Mines
Make sure you have a Shield on you, when you see a Mine in front of you, use the Shield and hit the Mine. Your car won't get damaged and your Shield will take the hit.
Full Bolt 8 cars
Use all your Bolt shots from a single Power-up on a opponent. Don't have the Overbolt mod on for this. Stay right behind someone and unleash all the Bolts at once.
Win any Race without wrecking or Repairing
Just play any race and don't go for repair Power-ups, play defensively and come in 1st. Pick up Shields and save your Shunts, Barges and Bolts to hit incoming Shunts that come your way in place of your Shield if you don't have any.
Win Event 6 in Harumi's car
You have to win the SanFran Sausalito Race while using your previous One-on-Ones car, Harumi's Skyline GT-R NISMO Z-tune. It is the Pink and Black GTR. Great car so you shouldn't have much of a problem with this.
You will be facing Carver in his Dodge Viper GTSR for this race. He is extremely relentless and acts like a real opponent would. He will go for Nitro Power-ups to get ahead of you and will hit you with everything he has. Any Nitro Power-up you see, pick up, try to get ahead of him and stay ahead. If you are having trouble passing him, try to Barge him at a corner. Once you are ahead he won't attack much, only when you are near him. So just grab all the Nitro you can and boost away!
You unlock the Mount Haruna Checkpoint in the Loose Cannon stage. It is the 4th race in the stage. You want to stick with a high grip car and stick to the road on this one. Only use Nitro on the very long straight sections. Don't use it after gate 7/12 because the road starts to have a lot of dips and jumps in it. It is okay if you bump into a guard rail or hit light poles, just don't slam into a guard rail head or wall head on. The best car to use is after you have completed the final One-on-One race in the Single Player. This will unlock the Opel Astra Extreme which has a very high Acceleration, Speed, and Grip rating. Go through the corners smoothly and this should be no trouble at all with the Opel Astra Extreme.
Shunts are the red power-ups, they lock on the the first opponent in its path, you will probably get this naturally through your campaign.
Destroy 100 incoming Shunts
You can destroy Shunts by shooting Reserve Shunts or Bolts as well as using a Barge once they are close.
Avoid 100 Shunts through driving evasion
The best way to do this is to use the Shunt Evasion mod that is unlocked later in multiplayer, if you don't have this mod just wait until the Shunt in your rear view mirror and than take a sharp turn in a different direction, sometimes you'll evade it sometimes you won't.
Reverse skillshot 100 cars with Shunt
To reverse skillshot you must simply hold down when your using the Shunt, it makes it a lot easier if there's a large group behind you or if your targeting an enemy on a straightaway.
Prove yourself by completing Rival Demands in career
To unlock this achievement you must complete the following tasks in the Single Player:
Show Talon you can drift by completing his first Demand
Talon is found in the 6th event series called Midas Touch. His first demand in this event is to drift a total of 1,500 meters. This has to be complete in the Midas Touch event.
Complete the second Demand in City Slickers
City Slickers is the 2nd event series found in the Single Player. This Demand requires you to Evade 3 Shock fields. A Shock field consist of 3 Shock Domes from each Shock Power-up. You must evade each Shock Dome for it to count as one field evaded.
Met your first Career Demand
Meet 10 Career Demands
Refer to "Hot Date" and any other One-on-One based achievement for tips on how to complete Demands.
We meet Shannon again in the final One-on-One in the Single Player Campaign. To reach Shannon and to face her in the One-on-One, you must complete the following Demands:
Stay above 120 MPH for an entire lap
Go to event 2 in SanFran Sausalito. So long as you avoid the dirt and crashing into the walls then you should be fine. When it says stay above 120mph for one lap, the start of the lap can be anywhere so long as you stay at 120+ from that point on for one run. Follow this video for the perfect strategy to getting it
Land 15 reverse bolts
To Reverse Bolt with the Bolt power-up, hold down on the and shoot the Power-up with .
Mine 20 cars
Mine 20 cars with the Mine Power-up. Either drop it behind you or shoot it in front of you, doesn't matter. As long as a opponent hits it.
Come first in all 6 events.
Come in first place on all the races. If you are having trouble you can set the difficulty to Easy.
Shannon as just as easy as she was her first time round, just with a faster car. She drives a Opel Astra Extreme, a extremely balanced car. The best way to beat her is to just wreck her. The race is 3 laps and a very long race. Just pick up Shunt and Bolt Power-ups and she will be wrecked in no time.
For this achievement you must reach a certain speed, on a certain level, in a certain car class, without using a Nitro Power-up. Before attempting all of the set speeds, let your opponents pull away so you don't have to worry about unneeded power-up attacks, wait at the starting line for 20 seconds or more. Set the difficulty to Hard so the A.I actually go fast enough to keep a large gap.
Hit 150mph in a class D car in Amboy
Choose Event 5 in Proving Grounds and pick the Rat Rod. Near the end of the lap you'll come across a run down airport and a long straightaway to its left. Build up speed before this and then go for it on that straightaway.
Hit 160mph in a class C car in Docks
Choose Event 3 in Crash and Burn and pick the 69 Camaro. There are two spots you can hit 160mph: Near the beginning after the first ramp there's a long straightaway to the left. At the end of the lap is your second spot. Build up your speed do a clean turn into the finish line and run the straight that leads to the ramp. The image below is the first spot after the ramp.
Hit 175mph in a class B car in Downtown
Choose Event 6 in Midas Touch and pick the Volkswagen W12. Once you enter the tunnel, drift into the middle lane after the tunnel, come out of the turn with at least 110+ mph speed. There should be a wide turn up ahead, cleanly turn into it without hitting any walls and then its make it or break it on this straightaway. Refrain from hitting any walls or moving around too much on this straight, moving around will reduce the speed.
A good tip if your having trouble with this still is to use a Shield power-up when going into the turn going out of the tunnel, it'll bump you off the wall to keep a bit more of your speed then a regular crash without the Shield would. Also the mod Titanium Shield gives the Shield power-up stronger so it doesn't hurt to add that in as well.
Start by coming out of the tunnel into the far right lane.
After that turn, have a Shield ready to put up for the next turn. You want to take it wide so you keep your speed around 110-115 mph.
Once you have done a clean turn, you will go up hill and hit a minor bump that will send you up in the air. You want to be going 124-127mph on this jump. If you aren't, there is no chance of making it. After that just keep accelerating straight into the wall at the end. Do not turn! You should hit the wall going exactly 175 if done correctly, this may take multiple attempts as this is the hardest one to complete.
Hit 200mph in a class A car in Shutuko.
Choose Event 1 in Double Trouble and pick any non drift car. This is by far the easiest one, just don't hit any walls and you'll hit 200 mph during one of your laps. This race has a highway portion that goes on for a long time and you if you stay in control and don't hit any other cars or walls, you will hit 200 mph at the end.
To accomplish this you must complete the following:
Earn all Primary Goal Lights - 342
Earn all Lights - 450
Earn all Fan Targets - 54
You basically want to earn all the Lights since they correlate with the Primary Goal lights as well as the Fan targets. This is better done on Easy. If you would like more tips, please refer to Somebody stop me!for tips on each event type.
To earn this achievement you complete the primary goals on every race with your difficulty set to Hard. While you are in the stage select screen you press to bring up the difficulty select screen. Set it to Hard, and complete all the races coming in first. You don't have to do Fan Targets or Fan Runs for this. As those are secondary lights, not Primary. If you are unsure of wither you've completed a race on Hard, in each race that you completed in 1st place on Hard, there will be a little orange pyramid in the upper right hand corner of the race selection similar to the achievement tile.
Car selection is very important on Hard. Do not take on an off road course with cars such as the Nissan 350Z or the Supra, pick the Trucks that have high grip and can maneuver through the off road tracks with ease. If you keep failing with one car, try another.
Wait until you reach the max fan level of 25 so you have the best selection of cars for every race. You should get to 25 before the end of your first run on career mode.
Take advantage of Fan Demands and the power-ups they give you. A.I opponents cant pick them up so purposely fail the Fan demand to continuously get its power-up
Mod Selection is important, use whichever mod fits your preference however i recommend the mod Fan Nitro, which is unlocked after you defeat Rhymer in Fan Service. For every 500 fans you get a Nitro power-up which can help you widen the gap against those annoying A.I
Once your in the lead stay defensive and drive smart, pick up Shields and power-ups to deflect endless Shunts.
Know your target: if your aiming at the Yellow Hummer only shoot 2 Bolts, ff your aiming at a green or blue car it only takes 1. Don't waste your Bolts carelessly
Ammo: Feel free to unload 3 Bolt shots as soon as you see a new Bolt power-up coming up when you already have a full stock of them
Wreck them fast: the faster you wreck the vehicles the more that respawn. Don't wait for them to be in site, look for the beam of light and if its in your range of fire go for it.
Shoot from an angle: Some events will require a large amount of points and you need to stay alive for that, don't shoot too close to the point where there recoil is unavoidable.
Save Nitro for straightaways or tight corners, with the tight corners you can drift into them and then Nitro your way out to keep yourself at a high speed
On Hard the Stopwatches hold a huge factor, collect AS MANY as you can, any that cross your path.
If you keep failing try different paths on the course, you may find one way a lot more beneficial then another.
If you still need help on a certain race, refer to this guide.

Complete the Ultimate Comeback Challenge (Multiplayer)
This challenge is under the ACE pack which is unlocked at level 30. You must get in First then in Last and then Win the race. If you start the race in first simply fall back to last and then take the rest of the race to get back in front. It's easier to do this in a Skirmish race where the max players are 10. If you're still having trouble getting it, play with a lot of friends and have them help you complete the challenge.
Complete the Retribution Challenge (Multiplayer)
This challenge is located in the Demolition pack. You have to get 5 revenges in one ranked match. I recommend doing this in Motor Mash in one of the LA maps where everyone has limited space. Everyone will be shooting power-ups everywhere so it should be easy to get multiple revenges in one match.

Tips to level up fast:
Challenges: Always look in your challenges and see if it's possible to complete any. If so work those requirements into your racing style. Also keep in mind the Daily Challenge pack resets everyday so you can net yourself well over 20,000+ fans per day.
Mods: Choose mods that fit your preferences, however if your not a very aggressive player you can always choose the two fan increasing mods to give you a small amount more at the end of each race.
Power-ups: Fury Bolting an opponent is the best choice of action. If you're right behind something just rapid fire your bolts and you can net yourself well over 150+ fans from that one attack.
Multiplayer Awards are given to those who performed significantly well or bad in a race. The awards are shown at the end of the race. Play in Power-Up racing with a large amount of players so you have a chance to make it in at least 1/5 awards at the end of the race.
Wreck a Blur developer on Xbox LIVE, or anyone with this Achievement
Practically anyone who plays online has this achievement, as it is a viral one. Wreck anyone and you should get it. If you don't, keep at it. With the 20+ hours you get to look forward too AT LEAST one of them has to have the achievement.
Winning a Motor Mash Event is pretty difficult especially against the insane players online who net 100+ points per round. Make use of all your power-ups and leave as many Mines in the way as you can, run straight into the crowd with full force if you want to rack your points up.
Wreck your Multiplayer Rival (Multiplayer)

If you win a Motor Mash Event your likely to have more than 50 points.
If your finding this rather difficult try inviting a full party of friends into a game of motor mash and have them give you easy points.
From the main menu go into multiplayer and pick "split-screen." You will be brought up to a sign in screen, with your other 3 controllers, press the for them to join. Play a Motor Mash and gain a couple points at the start. Once you got those points just wait for the time to run out.
