Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit Achievements

Most Wanted

Reach wanted level (20) Most Wanted as a Racer   

Reach the top rank as a Racer. You will need 2,000,000 bounty to get to rank 20. Online and Offline modes apply to this rank. Getting all Gold Medals in the Career will get you to rank 12 or 14 and take about 20 hours.

For single player, you can replay any Hyper Series events you are best at for the best bounty rewards. I found the event "Spirit of Performance" the best for grinding out bounty because it's short and easy.

Here is an online boosting method found by Turkdaballa6:

  1. Start a private match with 1 other person.
  2. Player 1 will start out as a cop and Player 2 as a Racer.
  3. Player 2 will stop at the start of the race and Player 1 will stop next to them to bust them fast.
  4. The next round, Player 1 will be a racer and turn around and drive the opposite way as Player 2 so they escape to end the match quickly.
  5. Switch side and let Player 2 win as each side.
  6. Repeat to level up.

You should get around 8,000 bounty per match.

Easiest way to farm for this? I know the Seacrest tour grants 50k bounty for a victory,
but I use roughly 12-13 mins a race.. Any faster way of gettin' to 20?

I got a gold medal in every event (rank 18) then finished the rest up online. online helps if your starting to get bored by the end of the career.

If you have the Super Sports Pack DLC, you can do a Time Trial with the Veyron 16-4 Super Sport which can be done in less than 2 minutes that gives you 15k bounty
