  • Quick Evade

    To get away from the cops:
    Go to the baseball stadium, in Rosewood. When you are in the pursuit press the left button on the D-pad - this brings up the map. Go to the Rosewood section and find the two closest Pursuit Breakers (orange triangles - they should be really close together). Set your GPS (clicking the 'A' button on the Pursuit Breaker) and go there. Go on either side of the stadium. Go and hit one of the sides (a big sign), it should fall, and you should be in the stadium. Go through the other side but don't knock this one down. You should now be facing the the road. Turn around (now facing the stadium). Go through and THIS time knock it down. You should be inside the stadium, and the entrances are blocked off - the cops can't get in to you. They should lose you and you will evade them. If done right, it works every time.

Need For Speed Most Wanted Hints

  • NOS Adds Grip

    Hitting nitrous torques the chassis back, shifting weight to the rear tires and giving them much more grip. So if you're fishtailing or are about to spin out, hit the nitrous even though it might seem wrong. You'll be surprised at how fast you straighten out. Use with Speedbreaker and you'll be able to roar around any corner.

  • Nitrous For Grip

    Hitting nitrous torques the chassis back, giving the rear tires immensely more weight under the new acceleration. The end effect is that you will go straight. If your tail is sliding out or you are about to spin out of control, hit your nitrous to get straighten out. This is a great trick in combination with Speedbreaker. With the correct timing, you can take most corners at any speed.

  • Easy WayTo Get Past Cops

    When the police set up roadblocks or spike strips, take advantage of your speed breaker (X button) and aim for the rear of any police vehicle. The back end of all of the police vehicle is much more lightweight than the front or middle so it is ideal for ramming through a roadblock/spike strip.

    When you are in a tollbooth race and you want to hit a tollbooth for extra time it will not always work. To avoid that, just before hitting a tollbooth, use the speedbreaker to slow time down.
