Need for Speed: Most Wanted (2012) Achievements

NFS Hero: Hero Worship

Win an event while driving with the 'NFS Hero' License Plate (Multiplayer)

Unlocking the License Plate
The 'NFS Hero' license plate is earned by unlocking all the basic mods for each of the NFS Heroes vehicles, excluding the 3 new mods (Ram Chassis, Drift Tires, Jump Nitrous).

This can be a bit of a grind because it involves driving 200 miles in each car. All mods can be unlocked in a private multiplayer game by yourself, with the exception of Impact Protection, which requires 10 takedowns. 

An easy method for accumulating 200 miles is to drive off a cliff. In some areas, your car respawns facing the cliff and cause you to roll off the cliff repeatedly, allowing you to increase driving distance while you're away from the game. Rubber banding the controller isn't required, but can make it slightly faster. It takes about 4 hours to accumulate 200 miles this way.


Keep in mind that the game rarely auto-saves while playing a multiplayer game on your own. Be sure to quit to single player and wait to see the auto-save icon before you turn off your console so progress won't be lost.

Once you have the plate, equip it and come first place in a SpeedList event to unlock the achievement.

Unlocking the cars for Multiplayer
The Nissan 350Z is immediately available, and the other 4 cars are unlocked by completing 24 SpeedList events in Sports class cars. Every 6 events completed will unlock another car from the pack. Winning is not required, and can be done in public or private games.

  • Nissan 350Z
  • Nissan Skyline GT-R
  • Lamborghini Diablo SV
  • Porsche 911 GT2 RS
  • BMW M3 GTR

If you're doing it in a Friend game, a quick method is to create a custom Speedlist and selecting the "Arch Angels" challenge 5 times. It's a Park Up event, and it takes place the same place as the meetup. Because of this, you can sit in one spot the entire Speedlist and complete all 5 events without any effort. The event takes about 30 seconds each time.

Sounds like an achievement similar to Sidekicked where we had to unlock all mods for all 5 ultimate speed pack cars.
I think once we get all mods with all Hero Pack cars we will get the "NFS Hero" license plate. Seems like it.

Confirmed to be like the Sidekicked achievement, just unlocked after winning a single event after unlocking 10 non-DLC mods for all Hero cars.

Ok I'm pissed, I had 100 miles with each of the DLC cars. Not wanting to do another 1,000 miles to get all the mods, I bought the complete modsavers pack which automatically unlock all mods for all cars. Thinking I could get the license plates this way. WRONG! I have all the mods for DLC cars now but no plates for getting 10 non-DLC mods with each car, so am I screwed out of these 2 achievements? What can I do?
