Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit

Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit Achievements


Accumulate 2,000 yds of drift in a single event using the Subaru Impreza WRX STI   

You will unlock this car early on while playing as the Enforcer and the Racer. After you have the car, start an event and drift on every turn. You can also pick an event on Builder Desert such as "Lightning Reflex" for the Enforcer and at the end, do a donut around the rocks in the big sandy area on the right side of a big turn.

To Drift, tap left and let go of  briefly and tap  while turning at a decent speed. You can then hold  when you start drifting and the direction you wish on the Left Stick to do a donut and keep drifting around one of the big rocks.

You do not however, need all 2000 drift points in one drift. It is fairly easy to get 2000 points before the end of the event without doing donuts or you can just turn around and build up some more points before finishing the event.

This can be done online.

South Side, Mission Beach, Escape To The Beach
I made sure I knocked 1 enemy out then just slid around everywhere.
Take the shortcuts, plenty of corners.

I found all you have to do is select the level "Escape to the beach", take out 1-2 guys, and then do donuts on the beach for 1,881M.

"Escape To The Beach" worked like a charm. took out the first guy, did doughnuts on the beach for 2000m, and still had time to take out the other two! lol

Just go to the beach area (look for the ferris wheel on the left side). You don't even need to bust anyone. I just went straight to the beach and found some space to do some donuts and accumulated a drift over 2000 alone (pretty easy once you get going). The achievement will pop up after everyone's escaped. I had time leftover to grab some cotton candy!

This is similar to the Slip and Slide achievement, pretty easy.

ok, "escape to the beach" was the best one to do it on. i busted one racer then went and drifted all for 2,000 yds on the beach in a big sand area and did a nonstop drift. then left and busted the last 2 racers. this is an easy one. you can find escape on the beach on the bottom left of the map in the mission beach SCPD section. have fun !!

Completed on "Escape to the Beach". Busted one on the way to the beach, did 2 1000ft doughnuts, wrecked into a cobalt, busted the 2nd guy, wrecked into another cobalt and almost busted the last guy before he crossed the finish. Damn cobalts lol

You have to complete the pursuit to get this achievement, just take out at least one before drifting on the beach although you will catch them all in the end
