[top]Tips and Strategies

  • Use rewinds – rewinds are your friend when you make a mistake or would like to rewind for any reason. You can use the rewind mechanic by pressing and let go of it when your ready or it will automatically run of out time. Keep in mind you have 5 rewinds per race event unless you make a custom event with an unlimited amount so use them carefully.
  • Drifting is not always the best when taking corners, sometimes it is best to left off the accelerator or tap the brakes with
  • The cars with a higher top speed are not always the best choice for the race event nor are the cars with the fastest acceleration. Keep an eye on which kind of race event you will be racing in so you can better judge which car would be best.
  • While you're playing through your WSR career try going for 1st place in all race events so you won’t have to use the Timeline option later to compete in any races you have lost. This will count towards the You rOCDed .
  • You can replay any race event by using the Timeline found in the WSR career mode. Once entered you will see a sub menu on the top of the HUD where you will see the Timeline option.
  • If you have a favorite car you like to use while playing in the online mode upgrade it as much as you can before upgrading it so much it goes into another vehicle tier. Don't worry if it does as you can remove parts to downgrade it as well, this will help you be faster and handle your car much better.

Imma Let You Finish
You amassed more fans than Taylor Swift has Twitter followers. That's 23.5 million, by the way.

We recommended you just play through your WSR career naturally as you will earn over 23.5 million fans during season 5.

Also the difficulty at which you play on does not matter as if you decide to play on very easy you will still earn this trophy during season 5 of the WSR career. You will not have to play any races over if you earned 1st place in every race which also counts towards the
You rOCDed .

Note:
Your online fans do not count towards this trophy as it only counts your WSR career fans.

[top]
Touge Fast, Touge Furious
You shutout an opponent in a career Touge event.

This can only be earned during the WSR career. You can earn this by the 5 second rule or by passing the finish line before your opponent.

At the start of any touge event you will see a -5 and +5 at the top of the screen for both racers in the event. This bar informs you how far ahead or behind you are from your opponent. Stay ahead of your opponent and you will win by one of the 2 methods. Win both rounds simultaneously and you will shut out your opponent for the trophy.

To make this easy set your difficulty on very easy and prevent your car from hitting the track walls. In addition pay attention to the mini map so you know what the track layout is.

[top]
C-C-C-Combo Maker
You reached the maximum multiplier in an Overtake event.

To reach the maximum multiplier in an Overtake event you cannot have any collisions during the time you are boosting up your multiplier. This means do not hit any walls, trucks, or go off course which will set your multiplier back to 100. Reaching the maximum multiplier requires you to pass the cautionary trucks giving you an extra multiplier after each one you pass. Once you reach score 1000 for overtaking the next vehicle you will earn this trophy.

Note:
The multiplier will go down if you do not pass another truck in an allotted time so you need to focus and remain close and be fast when attempting this trophy.

[top]
All Night Long
You took part in and completed an online Endurance race.

In multiplayer go to “Online Custom Search” to look for an Endurance lobby, all you have to do is complete the race, you don’t have to win. You can also just play with another player by creating a custom match.

To unlock this quicker make the time for the Endurance race 5 mins and play from there. This trophy should unlock when the time is up and the race ends.
If you like to find a player willing to boost please use the boosting thread. Grid 2 boosting thread here.

Pinball Wizard
You traded paint with every competitor during one offline race and still won the race.

You should attempt to go for this trophy when you are playing on California Race: Pacific Way, which is the second race in the game. It is the easiest race to achieve the trophy simply because there are only 5 other opponents you have to race against. Be sure to hit the opposing racers on the side of their car and not from behind as it may not trade paint with them and be sure to win the race.

If you already passed this race in your career you can go back by using the Timeline in career mode. If you are in your career events which if you are you will be looking at races to do, promo, vehicle challenges, and test drive screen press to go exit to the sub menu screen and you will see career, custom even, split screen, and timeline. Click on timeline and above WSR season 1 is where you want to click where is says Clubs New Union Trans America Pacers and it will be the second image.

Can not be achieved in Faceoff or Touge race.

Mo Money, No Problems
You've gone above and beyond the call of duty and completed 5 career sponsor objectives.

Please refer to Sellout below for more details please.

[top]
Vanishing Point
You've won a race in a white Dodge Challenger but lived to tell the tale, unlike Kowalski.

To earn this trophy you first need to make you Dodge Challenger SRT completely white. Take off the patterns by removing them in the livery or make those white too for the time being. After you have made your car white you can move forward with this trophy however you feel.

Stupot00 provided the tip that this can be done in a split screen race which can also be earned with Remember Me? . Do not use the second controller except for holding down the accelerator.

Make a custom event and make the following adjustments:

Race Type: Race (mandatory)
Vehicle Tier: If it stock then tier 2
Location & Track: Whichever but remember to make it a lapped race if you're attempting to earn Remember Me?
AI Drivers: Very Easy (because you have to win)

[top]
Rocket Manski
You've driven faster than a Russian torpedo, which incidentally is 230 mph.

You will not be able to attempt this trophy until you have reached season 5 of the WSR circuit or have unlocked the Koenigsegg so you can make a custom event. The fastest car in the Grid 2 as well as the best option for this trophy is the Koenigsegg.

If you choose to do this in your WSR career season the race you will want to do this is in is Promo Race 2: ESPN Endurance Paris, Avenue De New-York. Off the start allow your opponents to get a good distance ahead of you so they don’t interfere with your attempt at reaching 230 mph. On the fifth corner open the throttle all the way and when going under the bridge remain on the right side and DO NOT slow down for the turn as you need that bit of stretch to make this marker. By the time you hit the wall you should have reached over 230 mph giving you the trophy and you can use a flashback if you would like if you want to continue the race or messed up somewhere in the midst of it.

If you chose to do it by custom even again make sure you have the Koenigsegg and make a current event with the following location Paris, Avenue De New-York and use the above description to drive faster than a Russian torpedo.

Below is a video demonstration of the Rocket Manski provided by Maka91Productions.

Sellout
You've got one thing on your mind: money! You completed 20 career sponsor objectives.

In the beginning of each WSR season you are always asked for what sponsors you would like and each of them have different objectives that you can complete. Choose the sponsors with the easiest objectives since it’ll make it easier for you to get 20 objectives done quicker. While you are playing a season, don’t forget about the objectives, you can view the objectives by pressing while you are in the garage.

Note: Choose your sponsor's wisely as once you finalize them they will be your sponsor's until you are allowed to select new one so keep that in mind. Also it may be best to change the up each time to have a variety.

[top]
One for the Team
You've completed an individual Global Challenge goal and ultimately helped the community.

To earn one for the team you need to enter the Grid 2 online mode. From the online menu you click on events followed by global challenges. Each week will have different events for you to race through so if you cannot manage this one week try again the next week.

Before you begin an event in a city or event you will see the times or scores you will need to achieve to earn a bronze, silver, or gold medal. Just earn any medal on any event and you will have completed the task for this trophy.

[top]
A Different Class
You've upgraded a car and bumped it to 'Upgraded' class.

This trophy has to be acquired in the Grid 2 online mode.

For this trophy, you have to upgrade a car enough to get it up to the "Upgraded" class. If you want to get this quicker and make it cost less, I'd suggest doing this with a Tier 1 car like the Alfa Romeo because the upgrades are a lot cheaper. To upgrade your car go to "My Vehicles" when you are in the multiplayer menu go to "Vehicle Showroom" if you want to upgrade a certain car and when you choose a car go back and go to "Upgrades" then start upgrading the car if you have enough money.

[top]
Ring Master
You finished 5 seconds ahead of the target time in a Vehicle Challenge on the Red Bull Ring.

This trophy can be missed:
There are multiple chances throughout the duration of your 5 seasons in the WSR circuit. This trophy has to be earned while playing in career mode and needs to be done on the Red Bull RIng. You can see the location in which you’ll be racing after you select the vehicle challenge found in your career events on the right side of the screen above the promo events.


It would be wise to set your difficulty to very easy so you have a sure shot at earning this trophy in 1 attempt. If it is a lapped race you will know how far ahead of your opponent you are and the end of each lap so keep an eye out for when you reach checkpoints and want to know how far ahead you are.

[top]
Tokyo Drift
You scored 350,000 drift points in Okutama in a Mazda RX-7 TYPE RZ or a NISMO R34T-R Z-TUNE.

From your WSR career make a custom event with the following settings:

Race Type: Drift
Vehicle Tier: Tier Two
AI Drivers: Very Easy
Track Selection: Okutama (Tenshi Way, Day)
Advanced Options: Flashbacks unlimited
Vehicle: Nissan Nismo R34T-R Z-Tune or Mazda RX-7 Type RZ (if doing this from custom events in career you will not unlock these cars until WSR season 3)

To key to achieving high scores in drift races is to achieve a high multipliers. Some way to increase your multipliers are:

x3 staying close to the corner and are passing a construction pole during the drift.
x4 staying close to the corner and passing a couple of construction poles during the drift.
x5 staying close to the corner keeping speed and passing several construction poles during the drift.

Note: If you hit a wall, opponent, or spin you will lose your score for that individual drift and earn a zero.

Note: If doing this from custom events in career mode you will have to wait until you unlock these cars during the WSR season 3 circuit.

[top]
Shaken Not Stirred
You rolled a car at least 7 times and landed on its wheels, just like Bond did.

Description and video provided by Maka91Producstions:

First make a custom event and make the following adjustments:

Race Type: Race

Vehicle Tier: Tier Two
Rounds: 1 Round
Advanced Options: Flashbacks unlimited
Track Selection: Hong Kong - Magazine Gap - Day/Night
Vehicle: Nissan Nismo R34T-R Z-Tune

At the start of the race, you'll just want to race and distance yourself from opponents, and run the track until you're about 50% complete, which is indicated by the red gauge on the bottom left hand side. After this mark, there will be a 90 degree right hand turn, followed by a small curve in the road with a cliff on the right hand side. You'll want to take your car and steer into this cliff, in such a way that you get airborne and thrown off balance into the track. If done properly, you'll begin to roll (side over side) and then come to a stop. You'll land on your wheels almost every time so don't worry about that either. Also, if your car does not start rolling, just use your flashback and try to hit the cliff again in a slightly different way. View the video below for a visual representation.

Note
: Flips (front over back) do not count towards this achievement. The car must do barrel rolls.

Keep Your Friends Close
… and your enemies even closer. You beat a Rival on track.

In order to unlock this achievement you have to play against a rival and win. This is a lot easier if you do add rivals through RaceNet but if not Codemasters provides you with 2 rivals but you have to wait for them to be online and it takes a while. If you do this through RaceNet go here RaceNet sign in, go to "Rivals" and then click "Add Rival". There you will see a drop box with all the friends that play the game but they need to be your friend on RaceNet in order for you to make them a rival. Add one of them as a rival and have them accept your rival request and when they do, invite them to a game and win.

[top]
You rOCDed
You finished first in every career event, during season play and/or via the timeline.

You can do this as you go along in your WSR career or you can finish all 5 seasons and then use the timeline to go back and race in those that you haven’t. The best suggestion we could give to you all is to put your difficulty on very easy so you should easily win every race. For help on changing your game difficulty refer to the tips and strategies above.

Every race needs to be have won in 1st place or else you will need to restart the race and start all over until you do. You will know which placement you have earned by backing out to the event and the position at which you last earned will be in the upper right hand corner.

You will notice if you completed the sponsor/objective races during your career you will have received a green checkmark, however if you did not complete them and do in the timeline they may not come up with a green checkmark this does not mean you cannot achieve the trophy keep racing and this should still unlock once all the events are completed.

[top]
Dipping Your Toes
You've reached level 10 online and opened up a new world of possibilities.

To reach level 10 online first you need to sign onto the Grid 2 online mode. From here you can join in any events or create your own race events. All races you play while playing Grid 2 online will net you fans in which will increase your level ranking.

It is much faster if you have a full room of racers compared to racing just one or two opponents from your friends list. If you would like to find more races willing to boost please use the boosting thread found here.
Grid 2 Boosting Thread.

If deciding to play in a room full of racers take a look at their level because to get more fans you want to place higher in the rankings and make it to the podium standings. If people are levels above you chances are they better performance cars that will leave you with little to no chance and taking those top podium finishes.

[top]
Social Butterfly
You took part in an online playlist and stuck around for at least 5 races.

As the description says join any playlist online and stay for 5 consecutive races in which you can win or lose it doesn’t matter although winning will benefit you to reach level 10 faster for the Dipping Your Toes . This can be done privately or publicly depending on how you see fit. Grid 2 Boosting Thread.

[top]
Sideways Shenanigans
You performed a 100m drift.

You’ll most likely unlock this trophy throughout progression in WSR career. All you have to do is to perform a drift of at least 100m. One of the easiest places to get this in is in the testing track during the tutorial. Hold down or press down before going into a turn and try stabilizing your car for as long as you can and if you performed this correctly this trophy will unlock.

[top]
Could it be Magic?
You beat all of the Prestige drivers in career club events.

During the first 3 seasons of your WSR career you will be introduced to new clubs at the beginning of each all having their own prestige drivers. There are a total of 8 club events?

Clubs in WSR season 1:
New Union, Trans America Pacers

Clubs in WSR Season 2:
Divizero, Eliminacion, Euro Rand

Clubs in WSR season 3:

Kowloon Dragons, Dubai VIP, Haruna Kyojin

You do not have to come in 1st necessarily all you have to do is beat the prestige driver of that club in the career club event, however you will need to place 1st in every race event for the You rOCDed .

You will know when you are going up against a prestige driver in club event because at the start of the event will be a short video clip.

[top]
Master Racer
You won a career event on the hardest difficulty without using Flashbacks.

If you are playing on the hardest difficulty then more than likely you will achieve this throughout your WSR career, however for those not playing on the hardest difficulty of very hard will need to enter their options menu located within the career mode. You can press until you are out of current career events and see the menu selection tabs. From there go to options and set difficulty to very hard and damage also has to be full and not just visible.Once you have completed those objectives go to the timeline found in the career menu and head back to WSR series 1 and choose the California Race: Pacific Way as this should be one of the easier races to beat on very hard.

Note:Use the Trans Am as it will be your best bet to secure a victory.

[top]
Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger
You won a race in an upgraded car.

This has to be done in the Grid 2 online mode.

To upgrade your car go to "My Vehicles" when you are in the multiplayer menu go to "Vehicle Showroom" if you want to upgrade a certain car and when you choose a car go back and go to "Upgrades" then start upgrading the car if you have enough money.

This has to be done in a race event and not drift or checkpoint just keep that in mind if you are using your upgraded car and not earning the trophy. If you do not have a boosting partner you can search for customs results containing the tier of car that you upgraded and always use that car until you get a win.

[top]
A Vision of What's to Come
You won a career Promo Event.

There will be several Promo events throughout your career play so don’t worry about this one. Promo Events are found in career events. It will be displayed as Promo on the right side of the screen. Promo events can an assortment of races between overtakes, race, endurance, etc. Just win the event and you will have earned this trophy.

[top]
Beginner's Luck
You set the fastest time on the first lap of a Time Attack event.

You will encounter your first Time Attack event in the beginning of WSR season 2. This trophy will unlock once you get the fastest time on your first lap against all the other racers. Do this on “Very Easy” difficulty as it will be much easier.

[top]
Remember Me?
You lapped a competitor.

The easiest way to do this is to make a split screen even in which you don’t race with your second controller. Pick any vehicle you want from any tier and make sure any track you choose has more than 1 lap so you can achieve this trophy.

If you don’t have a second controller or a boosting partner you can make a custom event and make it an endurance race set for the maximum amount of time where any track you pick you will be able to lap the last place opponent in any race.

[top]
Eat It!
You won the first round of a career Touge event using the 5 second rule.

As the description reads this has to be done in a career event and not online. There are 2 possible ways to win a touge event one in particular we will be explaining here in the 5 second rule.

At the start of any touge event you will see a -5 and +5 at the top of the screen for both racers in the event. This bar informs you how far ahead or behind you are from your opponent. Win the first round of 2 in a touge event by getting in front of your opponent by 5 seconds and ending the race.

To make this easy set your difficulty on very easy and prevent your car from hitting the track walls and pay attention to the mini map so you know what the track layout is.

[top]
Making my Way Downtown
You've driven more than 1,000 miles (1,610km).

Over the course of time playing through your WSR career you will build up your miles driven. This will accumulate with the miles driven in the online mode as well. When a race event is loading it displays viable information to the player about their stats so you will be able to see your miles driven there.

[top]
Pedal to the Medal
You won a round of a career event without using the brakes.

The second race you encounter in Grid 2 is the California Race: Pacific Way which is easily won even on hardest difficulty. Go through the race once if it makes you more comfortable to learn the turns and find the turns where you need to let go of the accelerator instead of pressing down on the brakes. To take cautionary measures you can put your games difficulty on very easy to make this trophy even easier to achieve.

[top]
SWAGtastic!
You beat the target time in a Vehicle Challenge.

This is done in career mode by beating the target time for any vehicle challenge you are trying to beat. Vehicle challenges will appear shortly after you have been asked to choose between two vehicles and then it says you will have the option to win this car later on.

To enter a vehicle challenge go to your career and to the right you will see where it says Test Drive, Vehicle Challenge, and Promo. Enter the vehicle challenge as you will only get to use that particular car and beat the targeted time/score for that challenge. Every challenge is different for example some are takeover’s and some are races so be versatile and all of these challenges should come relatively easy to you.

[top]
Global Domination
You won a week of Global Challenge.

In the Grid 2 online mode after clicking on events you have the option of global challenges. These challenges reset every week and are based off the leader-boards from your friends list and the automatic rivals given to you by Grid 2.

If you are having a hard time achieving this trophy try deleting the people on your friends list if they are interfering. You cannot delete the 2 automatic rivals given to you by the Grid 2 servers. What you want to do for this trophy is remain on top of the leader-board until the time is reset. You do this by racing in all events you feel you need to in order to be on top of the leader-boards. Winning all gold medals will certainly help you out for this. Beware that people can hop on within the last hours and take over the leader-board so keep an eye out.

Note: You HAVE TO BE LOGGED in at the end of the week when the time expires.

[top]
California Dreaming
You completed California Big Sur in under 3 minutes. (Excludes drift events)

You should attempt to go for this trophy once you have good experience with a tier 4 vehicle. As a recommendation I (Yoo_Hoo_Sniper) think the Audi R8 Le Mans is the best car in the game with magnificent grip on the turns allowing you to brake through this race when needed and not worry too much about the time. Once you are ready you want to make a custom event with the following adjustments.

Race Type: Race or Faceoff (Only puts you against one opponent)
Vehicle Tier: Four
AI Drivers: Very Easy is recommended
Track Selection: Location California (Big Sur 9.6) Day time
Car: Any within the tier but the Audi R8 is superior in this tier.
Advanced Options: Unlimited flashbacks and make damage visual only.

You want to get ahead of any competitors quickly and keep a clean race taking tight corners and if needed use flashbacks where needed. As
Maka91Productions states below in the video you should hit the halfway section marker with a time of 1:42 or faster. This may take you a few tries but don’t give up and if you feel like a vehicle change might help try that as not every car is best for different people.

Below is a video provided by Maka91Productions on completing the Big Sur under 3 minutes.

Jack of all Trades
You've competed in all race types.

There are 9 types or races you need to take part of and complete in order to achieve this trophy and they are as follows with brief descriptions:

  • Drift - A race in which you must power slide through curves in the course within an allotted time and winner in chosen by the highest score reached at the finish line.

  • Eliminator - Races that start off with 12 racers where they are eliminated one at a time until there is just one left who will be crowned the victor.
  • Overtake - One on one racing not against each other but for points by passing cautionary vehicles and avoiding any obstacles or driving off course forfeiting the multiplier, winner is chosen by who had the highest score and the end of the event.
  • Endurance - A race given a pre determined time limit allowing the racers to determine their own fate and winner is chosen by distance traveled during the time allowed.
  • Togue - One on one racing where you can win by the 5 second rule, which is being ahead of your opponent by 5 seconds or win by reaching the finish line first.

Flawless Victory
You've won an Overtake event making no contact with anything. (Excludes Global Challenge events)

Overtake is a race against one other opponent where the purpose of the race is to pass the caution trucks building up a multiplier to earn points defeating your opponent. You forfeit your multiplier when you hit obstacles such as your opponent, walls, trucks, or by driving off the course; every time you have a collision you are sent back to 100 points per truck passed. The maximum amount of points that can be received is 1000 points which is done by passing 10 vehicles before the timer deducts 100 points off your multiplier.

The best time to achieve this trophy is during the WSR season 2 on track Alpinestars Overtake: Paris, Pont De L’ALMA because it is wide open and the trucks don’t get in the way to much. Just remember that the trucks do use the racing line while they drive so attempt not to do the same thing. Also drive slow as there is no rush on these races it is easy when keeping your composure not rushing on passing trucks on a tight turn.

Another way to obtain this trophy is to make a custom event to your satisfaction. For race type pick Overtake and make it a 1 lap race to make it easier on yourself with unlimited flashbacks in case you have any accidents and don’t want to start over from the beginning.


Tips for Overtake races:
  • Focus on the trucks ahead of you or behind you when entering into a turn. You can look behind or to the side of you with
  • Do not rush into any turn risking a loss of multiplier instead of a small 100 point deduction until you pass the next vehicle.

Winging It
You've won a LiveRoute event.

The LiveRoute events are first available to you during the WSR season 1. LiveRoute races differ from original races by not giving you description of where your competitors are or the layout of the track; instead the minimap (round sphere bottom left) is presented by two arrows not giving off any information about the race. You will have to rely strictly on your own abilities and you are driving blind in these races. If you want to know the distance in which you have left in the race of have driven so far in the race that’s what the red bar is for above the minimap which is broken up into four sections. Once the bar has filled up a section you know you have finished 1/4, ½, ¾, and are closing in on the finish line. This will still be available to you during the LiveRoute events.

Tips for LiveRoute races:

  • If there are any cars ahead of you pay attention to their brake lights as it will tell how sharp the turn is.
  • By looking at the environment of the track and how wide it is you can determine the size of the track when turning thus letting you know the speed at which you can take the turn.
  • The LiveRoute races take you in very similar paths as a lap with few changes to the track allowing you to remember most of it will make it easier to identify the turns ahead of time.
