Have a saved game file from Need For Speed: Underground 2 on your memory
card to get an extra $10,000 in Career mode after the prologue.
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 upgraded now.
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.
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.
Get a perfect launch on your tachometer when launching from the start line
to get a boost. 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 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
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.
Additionally, never respawn your car in a pursuit, as the police will
always catch you.
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.
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
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.
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 for performance.
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
Car upgrade test
If you are unsure which car is the best to use when upgraded, you can
upgrade all the cars that are unlocked for free in the main menu. Go to
"My Cars", select a car that is available, and upgrade it with the parts
that are available. By doing this, you will not waste all your money in
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 chase.

After you beat RAZOR and the cops come CROSS should tell his partner send every cop after

MIA will call and say "you can't go to the safe house" head to the bridge go there and you will
beat the misson!

When cops are chasing you, decrease your speed very little and get side by side with a cop car
and try pushing him into big trees,other cars or trucks or even into gardrails,then increase your
speed and go,that way your bounty increases.
How to always get the rivals pinkslip:
Submitted by: Divan Steyn
Note: when you reset your console the pinkslip marker always resets itself to the first [?]
(unknown) marker. After you've beaten the blacklist rival you get to select 2 markers from
him/her, so select the first [?] (unknown marker) to get the car! Now...you've got to keep
track of the markers you've selected. You first selected the 1st [?] now the second time around
(without resetting your console) the next blacklist rival's car will either be in the second or
third [?] marker. So before racing the next rival make sure you can remember which one of the
three [?] markers had the pinkslip, and if you cannot remember simply reset your console and
the pinkslip marker will reset itself to [?] (unknown marker) #1...
