Introduction:
Welcome to Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit, a glorious game to make a comeback from a studio known as Criterion Games. Be ready to drive cars as normal as the Rotary Engine RX-8, to a V16 Quad Turbo Bugatti Veyron. Engage in intense pursuits from the seat of both racers and cops, to battle over the kings of the street.

Breakdown:
Most of the achievements can be earned in the single player career. You must get Gold medals on every event in the game, while along the way, do some miscellaneous achievements related to certain events and cars. You will get most of the equipment achievements while playing through the career, but you can do these at anytime and online. There are some achievements related to the autolog and playing races online. You do not have to win any online events to get the achievements. The last achievements you get will probably be ranking up as the Racer and the Enforcer. You will gain bounty (experience) in all game modes, so you can boost ranks online if you want to after completing the careers or replay your favorite single player events.

Single Player:
As you play the single player career, you will rank up some along the way while trying to get True Blue and Golddigger. If you get an event that is easy and a good bounty payout, you can do it a few more times and take advantage of it.

You will also have several achievements to earn that require a certain car in a certain event:

  • Electrically Charged
  • Flight of the Bumblebee
  • Godzilla
  • Iron Man
  • Midnight Cowboy

Online/Autolog:
The online achievements are all very easy. You will get these Autolog specific achievements for posting on your wall, uploading pictures, having 5 NFS friends, and beating a friends score in an event:

  • Share the Joy
  • Settling the Score
  • Share the Dream
  • Graffiti
  • Socialite

Then you will need to do online events with a friend or in public matches. You do not need to win. You should also note that, these achievements require an online pass. If you rented the game or bought it used, you can wait until you have 2 days free and activate the 48 hour trial that comes with the game or buy and online pass for 800 Microsoft Points on the Marketplace. You must play 50 events online to get all of these achievements:

  • Festival of Speed
  • Race
  • Chase
  • Escapologist
  • Bounty Hunter

Miscellaneous Achievements:
As you play through the career, you will unlock most of the miscellaneous achievements. First, there are equipment related achievements that you should unlock as you earn new equipment in the career:

  • Power Spike
  • Aerial Assistance
  • Eye of the Needle
  • Vengeance is Mine
  • Shock to the System
  • Hit Confirmed
  • Wall of Steel
  • Gotcha!
  • Burnout
  • Denied
  • In the Zone

There are also several achievements related to specific vehicles. These can be done online or offline:

  • Shaken, Not Stirred
  • Wet in the Vette
  • Imprezive
  • Snakebite in Black

Ranking Up:
After you finish the career, you should mostly just have ranking up left to do in this game. Your rank in online and career is shared so you earn bounty from everything you do. Doing events with good payouts and boosting online will help you rank up faster.

Racer Ranks:

  • Suspect
  • Target
  • Felon
  • Offender
  • Outlaw
  • Wanted
  • Fugitive
  • Notorious
  • Most Wanted

Enforcer Ranks:

  • Officer
  • Patrolman
  • Trooper
  • Sergeant
  • Lieutenant
  • Undercover
  • Captain
  • Pursuit Agent
  • Ultimate Enforcer

Conclusion:
Hot Pursuit is a very enjoyable game where you can just pick up the game and start racing. The achievements are pretty simple once you unlock the cars and events you need for some of the more specific ones but it's mostly getting gold on every event and ranking up. If you have the need for speed, you picked the right game to satisfy that need!

DLC: Armed and Dangerous

Abbreviated Walkthrough:

This adds two new game modes online (Online pass required).
The 3 achievements are unlocked in online game play and are easily obtainable.
Your first step is to play arms race and simply take down another racer.

Next play most wanted. Normally you will switch back and forth between cop and racer (If there is an odd number of players there might be a time you play as a cop/racer two rounds in a row) simply play enough rounds to play as each 5 times (winning not necessary).

DLC: Lamborghini Untamed

Step 1:Play through both cop and racer events:
On your right hand side of the Seacrest map is your list of DLC events. These events are pretty easy and if you've done most of the retail game events you should breeze through this. Once you've done both events for cop and racer you'll unlock "Masterpieces."

Step 2: Vehicle specific achievements:
These shouldn't give you too much trouble. The guide does an excellent job of describing how to unlock specific achievements. Here you'll finish up the DLC by unlocking:

  • "Pin-up"
  • "The Diablo You Know"
  • "Flame Grilled"

DLC: Porsche Unleashed

Step 1: Play through both cop and racer events:
On your right hand side of the Seacrest map is your list of DLC events. Your goal is to try and get gold on racer and distinction on all cop events. This should get you "The Porsche Principle." Again this should be pretty straight forward and not cause you too much trouble.

Step 2: Vehicle specific achievements:
Here you'll be using the guide to get each vehicle specific achievement. You can replay events to unlock these. You should unlock:

  • "Offroad Innovation"
  • "Street of Dreams"

These are pretty easy and shouldn't cause you any trouble.

Step 3: Online Mop-up:
The last achievement should be boosted due to the online being pretty dead in this game. Use THIS thread to find a boosting partner. At this point you should of unlocked:

  • "Top of the Range"

DLC: Super Sports Pack

Step 1: Play through both cop and racer events:
On your right hand side of the Seacrest map is your list of DLC events. Your goal is to try and get gold on racer and distinction on all cop events. This should get you:

  • "Swift Justice"
  • "Untouchable"


Time trials and Rapids responses will give you the hardest time. On the cop events if you hit anything time is deducted so be careful. The guide has some great tips on how to try and get gold on events. Try and go for vehicle specific achievements as well, but don't worry if you don't get them. Your main focus is on getting gold.

Step 2: Vehicle specific achievements:
Here you'll be using the guide to get each vehicle specific achievement. You can replay events to unlock these or boost them online with a friend. You should unlock:

"Sting in the Tail"
"Slip and Slide"
"Show Off"
"Moon Shot"
"Land Speed Record"
"Fender Bender"

Step 3: Online Mop-up:
For the last three achievements a boosting partner is recommended. Use THIS thread to fine one. At this point you should of unlocked:

  • "Hotshot"
  • "Blast Off"
  • "Biteback"

Settling the Score25
Select a Friend Autolog Recommendation and beat it (16) 

Have a friend set a score on any event and send it back to you as a challenge. All you have to do is do better than them on that event and the achievement will unlock.

You will most likely get this without trying, but you can try to boost this by having a friend do poorly on a race they have not done yet and you can easily beat their score if you want the achievement fast.

 

Graffiti10
Create a 'New Post' or 'Write a Reply' on the Wall (1) 

At the Main Menu, select “Wall” and press  to create a post. This achievement will unlock when going for several other achievements as well, so it is pretty hard to miss this one.

 

Share the Dream10
Share a Dreamshot to the Wall (9) 

During an event, you can pause the game and take snapshots of the track and cars. You may also take Dreamshots at the vehicle select screen. This will also unlock the "Share the Joy" achievement if the first Dreamshot you upload is of a BMW.

 

Socialite10
Have 5 or more NFS Friends (104) 

Just have 5 people on your friends list that have played Need for Speed Hot Pursuit or the Demo. The achievement unlocks as soon as the game sees your 5th friend in the game or if you have 5 friends, it unlocks after the Autolog sets up for the first time.

 

Gotcha!5
Bust a Racer (2) 

This will unlock the first time you bust a racer in any game mode.

This can be done online.

Pursuit Agent25
Reach rank (19) Pursuit Agent as a Cop 

See "Ultimate Enforcer".

 

Ultimate Enforcer50
Reach rank (20) Ultimate Enforcer as a Cop (22) 

Reach the top rank as the Enforcer. You will need 2,000,000 bounty to get to rank 20. Online and Offline modes apply to this rank. Getting all Distinction Medals in the Career will help you rank up to about rank 12 or 14. You can replay events in the career to keep gaining bounty.

For Single Player, you can boost your Enforcer Rank using any of the Special Response Unit events you are good at doing. I found the event "Fight or Flight" good for gaining bounty fast.

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.

 

True Blue100
Earn a Distinction in every single-player Cop mission (20) 

There are 48 Enforcer Events to get Gold on. This will take about 10 hours and some retrying of events to place first. Try to stay behind a racer to slipstream and practice drifting to help build up your nitrous. Keep practicing and most of the events should not be too much of a problem except for some really tricky ones that should come if you just keep at it.

Some tips are:

  • Learn when to boost. Going up hills and long straight aways will be perfect times to use your precious nitrous.
  • Explore the shortcuts. Some shortcuts will help you a whole lot and others will mess you up even more. If you are having trouble with an event, find out which route benefits you the best.
  • Drift. This is one of the better ways to get your nitrous refilled and will help you from hitting walls on those sharp turns.
  • Do not waste power ups. These will help you during Interceptor events and Hot Pursuits. Start the events trying to use brute force to take out your opponents. When you are getting low on time or have a lot of racers about to be knocked out, use your equipment and take them out.

You can restart the event if you mess up to bad so you do not have to watch too many loading screens. On the downside, you do not get any bounty if you do this. So if you are getting 2nd or 3rd place, the bounty you earn can help you rank up for the rank achievements.

Most Wanted50
Reach wanted level (20) Most Wanted as a Racer (8) 

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.

 

Golddigger100
Earn a Gold Medal in every single-player Racer event (17) 

There are 60 Events in the Racer Career to get Gold on. This will take about 15 hours and some retrying of events to place first. There will be a few Time Trials that will give you some trouble, but if you keep practicing, you will persevere.

Some tips are:

  • Learn when to boost. Going up hills and long straight aways will be perfect times to use your precious nitrous.
  • Explore the shortcuts. Some shortcuts will help you a whole lot and others will mess you up even more. If you are having trouble with an event, find out which route benefits you the best.
  • Drift. This is one of the better ways to get your nitrous refilled and will help you from hitting walls on those sharp turns.
  • Do not waste power ups. These will help you during races and hot pursuits. Start the races trying to use brute forces to take out your opponents. When you are getting low on time or almost have a cop knocked out, use your equipment and take them out.

You can restart the event if you mess up too badly and think you are going to lose. On the downside, you do not get any bounty if you do this. So if you are getting 2nd or 3rd place, the bounty you do earn can help you rank up for the rank achievements.

When an Enforcer calls in a Road Block, keep an eye out for it and when you see it, drive around it and make sure you do not hit any of the cars in it. The Road Block must be previously undamaged, so it will work best if you are in first place or ahead of everyone else during the event.

DLC: Super Sports Pack
Cost: $6.99 USD Achievements: 11 Points: 195
 
Untouchable30
Get gold in all the Super Sports Racer Events 

There are 8 Racer events in the Super Sports Pack DLC. Once again, there are Time Trials that will slow down your progress. Just keep practicing and find out what shortcuts benefit you the best and do not crash.

Here are some tips for the Time Trials:

  • Awe Inspired - At the start of the event, there will be a dirt road shortcut. This shortcut goes through about half of the event and will give you a little bit of extra time that will make your life easier.
  • Pushing the Envelope - This is the event that will make you pull your hair out. Keep practicing and practice some more!
    -Some good tips are to only take the first 2 long short cuts. The first shortcut is at the start after the first cop and the other is on the left right after you pass the airport.
    -The next tip is pretty important. Only attack the cops if you really need to. Avoid them the best you can and use spike strips to take them out. Save your Jammer for the helicopter spikestrips if you can't dodge them fast enough as well. If you can, use up your boost before finishing off a cop because you get your boost refilled when you take them out.
  • Fast Track - Start out on the wrong side of the road. You will get a ton of boost and it's pretty easy to dodge the traffic. I had a pretty big crash and still made it with 7 seconds to spare.
  • Rocket Science - This one you will eventually pass with a second or two left on the clock. The trick to this time trial is to take the big loops with a perfect drift. Save your boost for the second loop because it's easy to hit a wall or mess up and you need to get out of that loop as fast as possible.
Swift Justice30
Get distinction in all the Super Sports Cop Events (8) 

There are 5 Enforcer Events In the Super Sports Pack. These events are a little harder than the ones in the main game. Just keep practicing and test short cuts to see how well they work for you.

The Rapid Response event "Duty Calls" is the only real hard event for the Enforcer. You will need to take some shortcuts but not all of them. Some of the shortcuts are too complex to be of any help. If you hit more than one thing, I would suggest restarting the event. I hit 1 wall and got a 2 second penalty and made it with half a second to spare.

 

Sting in the Tail15
Get 5 spike strip hits with the Porsche 911 GT2 RS Interceptor (4) 

Do the first Enforcer DLC Event "Show of Force". You are forced to use the 911 GT2 RS and you start with 10 spike strips. Just hit any 5 cars with a spike strip and the achievement will unlock.

 

Slip and Slide15
Do a 1000 yard (915 metres) drift in the Porsche 911 GT2 RS (19) 

This has to be done in a single drift. You can do this in an event, in free roam, or online. I did this in free roam on the highway doing donuts around one of the overpass supports in East Gorge Canyon. Just slide into a drift and hold the gas and left or right on the  to keep sliding in a donut shape.

 

Show Off15
Take a photo of the Porsche 911 GT2 RS and share it with your friends 

There are several events that force you to use the 911 GT2 RS in this DLC. During any of those events, take a photo of the car with  or pause the game and take a dreamshot. After the event, go to the main menu and look under photos. Post the image of the Porsche to your Wall to unlock the achievement.

 

Moon Shot15
Bust a racer in the GUMPERT apollo s Interceptor at night, online or offline (2) 

Play any Hot Pursuit or Interceptor events that have the Apollo S available and bust the racer. This will be easier in Hot Pursuit mode because there are several racers and they are easier to catch than in Interceptor events.

 

Land Speed Record15
Hold the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport at top speed for 2 seconds (4) 

This is an easy one. Just do any event that has the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport available and get a good straight piece of road and hit the boost. When you get to top speed, hold it for a whole 2 seconds to unlock the achievement.

Fender Bender15

DLC: Lamborghini Untamed
Cost: $6.99 USD Achievements: 4 Points: 75
 
Pin-up15
Take 3 pictures of the Lamborghini Countach 

Just play any event such as "Resisting Arrest" in the Lamborghini Untamed DLC and choose the Lamborghini Countach and take 3 pictures with  or pause the game and take a dreamshot. This also works in the car showcase photo mode before you start an event or free roam.

The Diablo You Know15
Reach top speed in a Lamborghini Diablo on a coastal road (7) 

Do the Racer event "Comeback Tour" in the Lamborghini Untamed DLC. Save your nitro for about half way through the race and you will be near a tunnel. Hit the boost and don't crash and you should unlock the achievement. It will work anywhere in this event or even Free Roam but I found this pretty easy to do and you still need gold in the event so there should not be any trouble unlocking this achievement.

Flame Grilled15
Use a full bar of nitrous in one go in the Lamborghini Sesto Elemento (6) 

Use the Lamborghini Sesto Elemento and save up your nitrous until you get to a large straight piece of road. When you get to a good spot, use your nitrous and hold it until you run out and do not hit anything to unlock the acheivement. The event "Foot to the Floor" from the Lamborgini Untamed DLC seems to be the best for this achievement because it's long and there are plenty of opportunities to use your full nitous bar.

Masterpieces30
Get Gold or Distinction in all Lamborghini Pack events (4) 

There are 5 Racer and 5 Enforcer events in the Lamborghini Untamed DLC. There isn't much that you have not done before in the original game or the first DLC outside only racing against Lamborghinis most of the time. Make good use of your nitrous, weapons, and do not crash and you should not have any trouble with most of these events. They were the easiest of all the DLC events so far.

 
 
DLC: Porsche Unleashed
Cost: $6.99 USD Achievements: 4 Points: 75
 
Top of the Range15
Win an online event in the Porsche 911 Turbo (15) 

*Requires an Online Pass*

Just play online and make sure you use the Porsche 911 Turbo found in the Sport class. Once you win the event, the achievement will unlock. You can take turns winning in a private match with a friend to make it easier. You may also do this while playing the Armed and Dangerous DLC to knock out 2 birds with one stone.

Offroad Innovation15
Drive for a mile (1.6 kilometres) on shortcuts in a race and win it in the Porsche 959 (4) 

This can be done on any event or online. The Racer event "Fast Lane" from the Porsche Unleashed DLC will get you started on the achievement as you will play through the event while trying to get a Gold Medal. The car isn't that great so if you find yourself doing poorly then just finish the race and do it again and you should have enough shortcut mileage for the achievement. 

You can also try it online and have your friend sit at the starting line and let you just drive around in shortcuts until the achievement pops and then finish the event. Then let your friend get the achievement.

Note: this achievement unlocks after you finish the event and leave the Screen that shows how much bounty you wont and your time.

Street of Dreams15
Drive the Porsche 911 Speedster for 20 miles (32.1 kilometres) (6) 

The Racer event "Sunset Racers" from the Porsche Unleashed DLC and that will give you 19.5 miles towards your achievement but the achievement unlocked after I left the event so it may be just driving close to 20 miles. If not, just play another event with the 911 Speedster or Free Roam for a minute and the achievement will unlock.

Note: this achievement unlocks after you finish the event and leave the Screen that shows how much bounty you won and your time.

The Porsche Principle30
Get Gold or Distinction in all Porsche Pack events 

There are 5 Racer and 5 Enforcer events in the Porsche Unleashed DLC. There isn't much that you have not done before in the original game or the first DLC outside only racing against a Porsche most of the time.

There are no crazy tough events though some might take a couple of tries, especially with the older model cars that you are forced to use a few times. Make good use of your nitrous, weapons, and do not crash and you should not have any trouble.
