[top]Tips & Strategies

It's all about REP.
There are many ways you can earn REP in Need for Speed besides from doing the story missions.
Pretty much everything you do earns you REP drifting, high speed driving, causing damage to the city, police chases,
use your Nitro the list is pretty long.

One thing that has to be mentioned is that you can also earn REP by finding collectibles. These are:
- Hidden Carparts (12)
- Finding Donut Spots (30)
- Take pictures across Ventura Bay (30)
There is no Trophy connected to these collectibles but it is wise to go after them as they give you quite some REP.
I've created a map which shows you where to find all collectibles in the game. Click here to check it out.

If you go straight for the story missions and finish that, you will end up short to get to lvl50
There is a small grind of maybe 2 hours doing random events to get the last 2/3 levels done


First of all, almost every trophy in Need for Speed is story related. Missions can be played in any order you want and you need to finish them all anyway if you are going for the platinum trophy.

REP points will come natural as you play. It might be necessary to grind out the last couple of levels to reach lvl50.
Don't forget your daily challenges and everything should fall into it's place.

Can I Get Your Autograph?
Reach REP Level 50

To get to level 50 you need a total of 5925000 REP points, which seems a lot. However you get REP points for doing about anything in Ventura Bay.

The main scoring styles you will get REP points for are the following:
SPEED - Obtain high speeds to earn REP in this style
OUTLAW - Destroy anything in sight including cars, dumpsters, busstops etc.
CREW - To earn points in the crew scoring style, drive in groupevents like Drifttrain
REP for build are obtained by accelerating from 0-100KM/h in a short time or deploying all of your nitro in one go
- Drift, drift, drift to earn REP for style

Another good way to start getting a chunk out of this is by finding all collectibles.
I have created a map with all locations for the collectibles which can be found here

Once you've hit said 5925000 REP points the trophy will pop

Tuned For Excellence
Win any event with a tuned car

You will probably earn this trophy early in the game while just playing. As soon as you tune your car with whatever part you want and complete any race, the trophy will unlock.

Beyond Extreme
Tune a car to max drift or grip settings

To tune a car to maximum grip or drift, head into your garage and select the car you want to setup for that. Select Handling Tuning in the menu.
The top slider is easiest to go by. Depending on the parts you have installed you can move that slider all the way to the left for a drift setup or to the right for grip. If you are not able to get it all the way to the left or right you should install parts that expand the bar further.
As soon as you hit either end of the bar the trophy will unlock.

Triple Crown
Win three events in a row

This is another easy one.
As the trophy description says, win three races in a row to obtain the trophy.

Social Scene
Get called out by other racers 50 times for your skills

You will get called out at the end of every event. For example A thumbs up icon with a message on how well you did.
To earn 50 of these you have to finish 50 events in total. You can do a single event multiple times, failures do count aswell (not reaching target)
There is no need to boost this as there are 79 story events, so you will get this trophy over time.

Full House
Fill each spot in your garage

You have a total of (only) five spots available in your garage. You can purchase cars during your playthrough but you will receive 2 free cars as you go. Keep this in mind if you want or need to save money for the Full Power trophy. If you did get the deluxe edition, you will have 2 cars from the start. Adding the 2 free cars you get during your playthrough, you could go the cheap way and only buy 1 more car to fill the last spot in the garage. The trophy will unlock as soon as the fifth car has been bought.

Building Your stable
Purchase another car for your garage

After you have earned enough money from doing events or finding collectibles, you can purchase a second car.
As soon as you do the trophy will unlock.

If you have a Deluxe Edition or Pre-order edition of the game which includes the BMW M3 E46 the trophy will
unlock after you pick your first car.

Serious Fun
Complete 15 daily challenges

Each day at 16:00(UTC) you will be given 3 Daily Challenges to complete. Finish 15 of them to earn this trophy.
Challenges vary from escaping a pursuit with a certain amount of fine built up, to winning certain races or events.
As you complete these challenges you will also unlock new decals you can put on your car.

No Filter
Take your first snapshot

This will probably be the first trophy you get.
When you are driving around in your car, all you have to do to take a snapshot is pressing the R3 button.
As soon as you've done that, the trophy will unlock.

That Perfect Moment
Max out all 5 scoring styles in a single moment

This sounds a lot harder then it actually is. In the top-middle of the screen underneath your REP points will be a circle divided into 5 slots.
When you perform a scoring style move it will fill up the corresponding slot. The five styles that need to be filled all at once are
The easiest way I found is by competing in an easy sprintrace event. This will cover the CREW points. Make sure you have a car with a Nitrous System installed to get the BUILD part out of the way by using it all at once. This will most likely also fill up your SPEED slot aswell. While you have just used your nitro and your speed is up high next to some other cars in the race, initiate a drift and end that by crashing into one of the other cars to get the STYLE and OUTLAW slots filled up too. This has to be done in a short time period as the slots will only stay full for a couple of seconds. Once you've managed to put them all together you will see THAT PERFECT MOMENT in your screen, knowing you have succeeded.
The trophy will pop at the same time.

Full Power
Equip top end performance parts to each category of a car

This trophy can only be obtained once you have reached level 50. Only then will all the top end parts be available for purchase.
Top End parts are indicated with an orange E. The costs for this will be at most $131555 which is a lot. If you have found the hidden carparts
and not used them yet on any other vehicle you could save some money. If you happen to have the Deluxe Edition of the game another 10% discount is given.
