Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit Achievements

Midnight Cowboy

Dreamshot a Midnight Blue Metallic Ford GT at night in the desert  

First, Unlock the Ford GT in the Racer career. The car is with the Exotic Series of events. Then select it when starting a race on any of the desert tracks that have a moon under the weather conditions and select Midnight Blue Metallic as the paint color. Then, just pause the game during the race and take a Dreamshot of the car.

There have been reported issues with this achievement not working correctly. To fix this, start any night time event in one of the desert areas and once the event starts, back out of it and start a free roam. Once in the free roam, you should start in the same area you last raced in. Pause the game and take the snapshot for the achievement.

You need to hit start, go to photo mode, and then take the picture there. You can't just hit the right thumb stick while driving (at least this is what I had to do).

I went to Freeride - Boulder Desert (bottom right of map, in desert), hit R3 to snapshot: nothing. Paused and went into Photomode: nothing. Uploaded the images to my Wall or w/e afterwards: nothing still. Parked in the desert, parked in a shortcut, parked on the road.... nothing.

I just got it by choosing racer freedrive in the Boulder Desert, about 15secs from the start I drove off the road into the sand then paused the game to go into photo mode. Took 1 picture and the achievement unlocked. I wasn't able to do it during a race yet on the same track. Try getting in the sand.

nvrmind. I found the problem. Check to see if your photo album is full and if you have like 23 pics than it is full and it will prevent you from getting the achievement. So after checking that go in to boulder desert freedrive than start by going right next to the hangars to your right stop in the sand and take a dreamshot of your GT in the sand looking into the hangars. As soon as i did this the achievement popped.

Think the issue is that you need to pick the racer not cop race on Bolder Desert, as tje cop one doesnt let you choose colour...

I had lots of problems on this one but i think you need part of the car inside the circle in the camera lens?? not sure but that was the shot that worked for me.

ohh and you must also be connected to Autolog mine kept droping out at ramdom
even though I was get 10 magabits/sec and my Live account was still connected, just bloody Autolog was dropping out.

Make sure you hit start and go into photo mode to get this, I took like 12 pictures just clicking the thumb stick and nothing. Went into photo mode and got it nearly instantly.

#4 - Of course you won't get an achievement. You're doing it on Playstation.
