Pay close attention to your tachometer when launching from the start line.
Grab a perfect launch to gain a few precious seconds. When the needle turns
blue drop the clutch and hold on.
Nitrous and 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 you find your tail sliding out or are about to spin out
of control, hit your nitrous. You will be surprised at how fast you will
get straight again. This is a great trick in combination with Speedbreaker.
With the correct timing, there is no corner you cannot take at any speed.
When completing a race, if the police radio in the car you are driving and you
do not want to run from them, press Down and choose another race. Alternately,
you may also jump to your safe house (must be done before you are seen or the
pursuit begins). If not, you must drive to it yourself in Cool Down mode. To
jump to the safe house, press Start, Right until seen. Additionally, upon
reaching level 4 (Most Wanted) there will be a lot of police chasing you.
At this level, cops are excellent at boxing you in. If you cannot move forward,
use reverse for a couple of seconds to get away from the block; spin your car
around and get out of there.
The best way to escape the police is to evade long enough to get into Cool
Down mode, then find a hiding spot. By sticking to the cities you will find
lots of Cool Down spots to sit and hide your car until the heat is off. This
is also a good way to avoid helicopters which appear if your reach level 4 on
your map. Another good method is to run into the triangles on your map, which
mark places where you can ram into shops and other roadside items to disable
the cops. Highways are good places to get blockades and strike strips which are
challenges for milestones.
An easy way to get away from cops at high wanted levels is to find the baseball
field. Look on the map for a small triangle towards the top left. Use highways
in a circle around the field to achieve your missions. Once you have gained enough
bounty, city damage, roadblocks, etc., drive through an entrance to the baseball
field, hitting the pursuit breaker on the way in. Make sure that you slow down
some before hitting the breaker so that it does not send you through the other
side of the field. Once you make it in the field, stay there and wait out the
Cool Down period. The cops should be off of you and will not be able to find you.
This works almost all the time to get rid of the cops. Just driving through random
blockers rarely works when you are at wanted levels 4 and 5.
If you win the Pinkslips to a Blacklist car, you may want to use the Blacklist
car as your own and make the necessary upgrades to performance, as most of the
upgrades will have been already made by the Blacklist owner. You usually do not
need to spend too much money to increase the performance, handling, etc. Sometimes
these cars will have upgrades that have not been unlocked yet, but most of these
are usually visual. Only do this if the vehicle you have won has better attributes
than the one you are currently driving in its standard mode. You can check this out
in the car shop. It is a good idea to keep about three to five nice quick cars in

Blacklist milestones are things you need to do to rack up your bounty so you can
challenge the next person on the Blacklist. Check these out so you know what you
need to do to increase your points. Once the milestones are completed, you must
work on increasing the points. The best way to do this is to cause as much major
damage as possible by taking out police cars, traffic, and crashing through shops
(for example, the donut shop and other places you will notice in the later levels).
Try to rack up as much bounty and escape before your status has reached level 4.
If your status is already level 4, then choose a different car for awhile until
the status goes down before returning to your preferred car. Once your status
hits level 4, it is harder to get into Cool Down mode to find somewhere to hide.
Avoid getting caught, as you will lose the bounty you have racked up during the
Get some cops to chase you, then go to the bus stop. Get on top of the buses and
make sure that the front of the car is at the edge of the last bus so that the
cops can see you and do not lose you. Keep looking behind you, because the cops
will sometimes find a way on top of the buses. When they do get on the buses,
just reverse as soon as you see them coming and push them off. Only one cop car
will come on top of the bus. Do this for as long as desired. When you want to
lose them, just reverse, park in the middle of the buses, and wait until your
Cool Down bar fills. The cops will also drive crazy and crash into themselves,
giving you extra bounty and bring up your rap sheet rankings on police vehicles
immobilized and police vehicles involved.
Find an easy race such as a drag or something short that you can win quickly.
Win the race and get the money. Go back to the safe house and start the race
again. Win the race to get the same amount of money again. Repeat this process
as much as desired. This is quite useful when you need that extra bit of power
to defeat a blacklist rival, but don't have the money for a better car or parts.
Defeat one of the opponents on the blacklist. You will get two marks to use on
several different things. Do not use them on the Uniques early in the game.
Instead, use them on the middle or the left Random choices. They should usually
come out to either a large cash bonus or the opponent's pink slip.
Before you can do anything, you must win the Burger King Challenge. Once you win it,
you will unlock all unique parts (also called Junkman parts). Get any car and put
all the parts on it except performance. Once you have your car the way you desire,
go to the performance shop. Max out your car, then put the Junkman parts on. Max
out your car again. Then put on the Junkman parts again. Your car should be fully
Getting the most money when selling your car:
When you sell a car, you will only get half of its list value; however, there is
a trick that works well for Pinkslips that you have won and no longer want. Take
your car to the shop, then go to the parts area. Go into the body kit, spoiler,
hood, rims, and roof air areas and set everything to stock. When you check out,
you will see anywhere from $1,000 to $18,000, depending on what Pinkslip car you
are stripping. Do not try this with performance parts. The shop will charge you
money for downgrading. Once you have stripped your car of all accessories, leave
and go to your safe house. Sell the car, and you will have made a lot of money on
the side. Do this every time you intend to sell any car.
Levels of police action:
The various levels of police action are as follows:
Level 1: Marked patrol cars and cruisers. They mostly chase and try to run you off
the road. If you have a quick car, they are not hard to get away from.
Level 2: Unmarked patrol cars and cruisers, roadblocks. The police mainly try to
ram you off the road and setup roadblocks. Avoid roadblocks by doing an emergency
brake lock U-turn or go through them. You can get through by ramming the cars on
either end of the roadblock or by going through a weak point like the sawhorse or
a gap between the cars. Use Speedbreaker to see the weak point in the roadblocks
and use nitrous to ram straight through. Some road blocks will not extend all the
way across the road -- you can go through where they have not placed a car.
Level 3: Marked GTO (Monaro) police cars, marked 4WDs (Rhinos), rolling road blocks,
roadblocks. These are quicker and you need to use objects to knock down in front of
them to disable them. Lead the chase with these vehicles through the cities to use
knock down points (for example, the giant donut sign, etc.) to disable the vehicles
and end the chase. Then, find somewhere to hide when you hit Cool Down mode. Rhinos
will ram you from the front. Listen for the call over the police radio. You can
usually see these coming on your map or on the road ahead. Depending on which car
you have, you can get away with ramming them head on. Otherwise, just use Speedbreaker
again to change lanes before they ram you.
Level 4: Unmarked GTO (Monaro) police cars, helicopters, spike strips. The unmarked
GTOs (Monaros) usually chase in packs and are very hard to avoid. They will try to
box you in by surrounding the car from the front and back and slamming the brakes
to take away any room you have to escape. Avoid this by staying ahead and using the
same tactics used in level 3. For the helicopters, use tunnels and underground
parking lots to escape from them. When they spot you, they can radio the police
to your location. Spike strips are set up usually on main roads and highways.
You can see them on the map when you see only one vehicle over to left of the road
not driving (i.e., pulled over). Aim for the police car and use nitrous to ram it
and get away. If you hit the spike strip you will get caught.
Level 5: You will not reach this level until you are at Blacklist #3. When you
reach this level, all the best and toughest police come out. The helicopters get
more aggressive, there are more spikes, and more belts are called in on you.
You must also deal with cross cop Corvettes. Cross and his team will apprehend
you at all cost. Like in level 4, the unmarked GTO cars will surround and box you
in and hit the brakes. Corvettes will also try to use rolling road blocks. If you
reach level 5, make sure you are in your fastest vehicle. You will need the nitrous.
Nitrous and 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.
It is critical when you get past Blacklist Member #6 to use your nitrous wisely
and strategically. Instead of just holding Nitrous in desperation to get ahead,
press and release it when the tachometer is about to shift to the next gear.
Upon the next gear shift, continue pressing Nitrous until the next upcoming gear
shift. This is a great way to cut time off your race.
One Stop Shop marker:
At the Press Start screen, press Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Up, Down to
unlock a special marker for the Junkman Engine part in the back room of the
One Stop Shop in Career mode. Note: This code can only be enabled once per career.
The best start car to use until you get the Eclipse is the Cobalt SS. When you
win blacklist races, try for the three ? markers. You can get cash or the pink
slip car. If you get their car, go to the safe house and sell it. You can get
good money by doing this, and get unique upgrades after you start getting into
the visuals (after you switch from the Cobalt). After you defeat Ming and get get
his Lamborghini, it should make progressing further in the game easier.
When you get his Lamborghini, go to the tuner shop and add in any upgrades needed
After beating Blacklist #8, you will have a choice to buy the Lotus Elise.
At this point you should have enough money to buy it. If not, you may want sell
to get enough money. Once you have the money, buy that car. It is great at road
handling, and is very fast once you have maxed out its performance.
Note: The stock top speed and handling do not look high at first.
