[top]Tips & Strategies

When going through some of the early trophies you will find out what car best suits you. Funnily enough in my case it was the Red Bull. This is because of its Slipstream Boost, when in a Slipstream for a bit of time you get a free boost, which is really handy in terms of starting last and getting up to the front.

HRT could be great for its Super Boost and Marussia too for the Jump Boost.

I actually found it easier to win on the 3,000cc, the supposedly harder difficulty than the 2,000cc and 1,000cc. Consistency is key, you do not have to win all the races in the championships, as there is never a driver that dominates a championship. If you feel your result isn't going to be good enough you can always restart, which restarts you from the event your on, not the whole championship.

[top]
Career 100%
Complete 30 different championships in your career

An interesting Career. You actually do NOT have to win every championship!

Only a select few such as Mirrored I to unlock Mirrored II. Finishing Third/Fourth each round should grab you the required position. Some modes are annoying, such as the Pure Racing Championship. Fragile Cars, and with the Jostlin' you car could be fully damaged by turn 3! If you can do this championship you shouldn't find it a problem. Try finish 6th or something like that in the first race at Germany to get a good grid spot for Abu Dhabi, try and get a good 1/2 place in that race to hopefully have some leeway for Monaco.

30 Championships to complete!

If you feel you are struggling with the championship race, you can always Restart the RACE, it DOESN'T make you restart the Championship.

Either: Win the ones you have to finish 1st in to get them out the way, or do the ones that mean nothing just finishing 3rd in them.

[top]
Your Friends are Cool
Complete a championship in your career in a splitscreen team

Two Controllers, start up a split Screen Career.

Do the first championship to get it out the way with, only 2 races, you do not have to win it, so set the difficulty to 3,000cc so the races are completed quicker.

[top]
Internet Famous
Win an online event (no teams)

Do this through Boosting, or just do this Online normally, no idea how busy the Online is though. All other spaces available are AI so will still need to beat them too!

[top]
Fish in a Barrel
Use power-ups against 3 drivers who are within range of the safety car (globals not included)

A Single pulse when the safety car is out should do, but there is another method of being the Lotus and using its special ability of shooting 3 bubbles at once when 3 people are in front of you. Should hit all three as they fire in different directions.

[top]
Heavyweight
Affect 3 drivers with a single Pulse

Should hopefully achieve this through the Fish in A Barrel achievement, if you are using my approach.

[top]
Fully Automatic
Hit the same driver three times with a 3x Ricochet Bubble

When playing 2 player you can always let the second guest player park his car in a straight, and when you have the three bubbles. Hit them once, wait for the bubble to disappear, and repeat until the third hit.

[top]
Whoops!
Hit yourself with your own Ricochet Bubble

Get a yellow bubble drive up to a wall and fire but I seemed to have horrible luck and hit myself quite a few times.

[top]
Scientific Method
Make an impact with each type of power-up

Should get this in time as throughout gameplay of the career you are bound to use each type of weapon, and if not, just go through on a 9 lap race ticking off each weapon you have used until you hear the trophy pop

[top]
Nailed the Jump
Trigger a jump boost

See Jump Boost Expert

[top]
Jump Boost Expert
Trigger 50 jump boosts

Basically find a space to get some air, and just before landing press the throttle, to get a boost from landing. Complete 50 of these to get the achievement, another trophy that should be completed in time, tracks like the USA one, you could probably get 4-5 a lap.

[top]
Slipstreamer
Slipstream past a driver

See Slipstreamer Expert

[top]
Slipstream Expert
Slipstream past 50 drivers

Using Slipstream makes you go quicker, and at the start off races you tend to get into someones Slipstream and should pass a few people, so another achievement that comes with time, a nice easy trophy, which should be completed around the same time as the Jump Boost one.

[top]
Shortcut Expert
Take every shortcut in the game

Each track tends to have 3-5 Shortcuts including the Hidden Shortcuts. The only exception being Singapore with the 1 locked shortcut and USA with quite a few. USA tends to be the most tedious, I think 9 in total, as you have to cut the corners with grass on them.

Set to:

Event: Race/Sector Snatch
Mode: 1,000cc
Laps: 3
Damage: Disabled
Weapons: Standard

Just work your way through each level, if you cannot see all the shortcuts, please refer to the Spoilers below for tips regarding the Shortcuts.

Set the Settings:

Game: Sector Snatch
Laps: 2
Speed: 3,000 cc
Damage: Disabled
Weapons: Standard

On each track try and snatch at least 3/4 sectors, need to be near the front otherwise you will get penalised in time. Make the most of the locked Shortcuts, they count as a sector. Once completing on each location this trophy should unlock.

Qualifying Lap

Complete a Time Trial Lap on any circuit.

See Gold Time

[top]
Gold Time
Earn a gold Time Trial record on all tracks

Once you have learned the tracks begin to try the Time Trials. Some hidden shortcuts such as cutting across dirt, the trick is to use a boost across them to save time. Such as the Italy shortcut when cutting the chicane. You have to really be on the ball in terms of hitting every boost pad available, every boost jump possible and breaking the shortest distance and keeping tight into the turns. Japan might be the hardest to complete, some luck with the Sumo's at the end might be needed as well as the annoying traffic! Some tracks it might take less than 5 laps, remember if you have mucked up your lap, save your free boost you get and use it going over the finish line, for the next lap you should get 0.3 seconds ahead of the previous lap.

If you are struggling check this video out:

[top]
Player of Games
Complete one event in each race mode

This will come with time through Career, you do NOT have to win the event, just complete it.

For the people who want to do it quick:

Set Settings on Belgium/Singapore

Mode: 3,000cc
Laps: 1
Damage: Disabled
Weapons: Disabled

Just then go through each game:

Race
Sector Snatch
Exhibition
Refuel
Pole Position
Trophy Chase
Elimination

[top]
Exhibition Rush
Earn 1,000 Exhibition points in under 5 seconds

A Jump Boost and taking someone out can get you 1,000 points in first place in this mode. You get penalised again for being further back in the pack.

[top]
Vapours
Win a Refuel event with an empty tank (no teams)

Very annoying trophy to get. Try and keep your fuel as low as Possible. I did this on the Brazilian track using as many shortcuts as possible, you can get a quite big lead on 3,000cc.

Then keep a boost with you, and try and get to the finish straight, there are two boost pads to use, and then use your boost to go over the line, if you do not have this, you might still make it, but you do go rather slow with no fuel. Hint of luck about this trophy.

[top]
My House
Own the whole track in Sector Snatch

Settings

Laps: 3
Mode: 3,000cc

Chose a Track you know you are comfortable with, and you know where the hidden shortcut is, as this does count towards the trophy, if you get all the other sectors, but not the hidden shortcut sector you will not get the trophy. Set to 3 laps, so you get two/three chances at getting the key for the shortcut.

7 sectors at Belgium, and that is the track I recommend.

[top]
Causing Trouble
Hit another driver after being eliminated

Keep a Single Pulse on you and purposely get Eliminated in the Elimination Event, and make sure you are near someone, and use it just after you go ghost like. It should unlock after that.

[top]
Shakedown
Make a nearby driver drop 600 points in Trophy Chase

Tailgate first position, and see when they have 3-4,000 Trophy Points, then just hit them with any weapon (Not a Global one) and they should hopefully drop the 600 points required!

[top]
Ecto-won
Beat a friend's Time Trial lap

Make a friend set a VERY Slow time around a track, and you do the same for them on a different one, beat their time, and then go on from there to get the Time Trial Gold Time

[top]
Prince of the Screen
Reach King of the Screen level 3

See King of King of the Screen

[top]
King of King of the Screen
Reach King of the Screen level 6

Two Player Split Screen.

Make first player win each game, and then the second player to time out once every other AI completes the race/Sector Snatch.

[top]
Social Butterfly
Complete one event with each constructor

Could complete this in three methods:

Complete the first 14 Championships Using a different Constructor in Career Mode.

Use different Constructors on the method of winning each track in 3,000cc Win Sector Snatch

Just do a 1 lap event on the Belgian Track using different Constructors.

[top]
Pitmaster
Repair in the pits 10 times

Should come by the 5/6th race, might visit the Pits more than once in a race. Easy trophy to do, just pit 10 times

[top]
They See You Rollin'
Earn 3,141 badges

This will come with time, badges such as Booster, Slipstreamer, Jump Boost etc. will tally up until getting this amount. It should be a trophy you will easily get through mucking around and/or Career Mode.

[top]
Bingo!
Use a power-up against every opponent on the track (globals not included)

9 Lap Race on USA as it tends to be the longest 'easy' track and easiest to hit people.

Just slowly work your way through the field, making a note of who you have hit. You can always get lapped and then hit them that way if they are too far ahead.

The trophy will unlock when you have done it, not at the end of the race.
