November 28, 2013

In Need for Speed Rivals, it's not just about one Rivalry, it's about many. But to take down all the competition, you're going to have to be the best of the best.

That's where we come in. Below is a list of tips and tricks for Rivals that will continue to grow as we reveal them. They range from simple gameplay to more advanced techniques for seasoned drivers. Keep an eye on this page and follow us on Instagram for new tips to ensure that you finish in first place.


Equip Pursuit Tech and use it! You have two slots for Tech. To deploy slot 1, tap Y (Triangle). To deploy slot 2, tap B (Circle).


Bank your SpeedPoints often if you're playing as a Racer. If you don't, getting busted by cops causes you to lose your current points. SpeedPoints can be banked at Hideouts.


You can team up with other cops (human or AI) to take down racers. To encourage teamwork, the amount of SpeedPoints awarded to each cop is random, so you might come out of the Bust with a slew of points!


As you progress through the game you'll unlock cars, PursuitTech, and more which can be purchased with SpeedPoints. Use Personalization to become recognized (and feared) by your Rivals.

You can easily locate friends, Hideouts, etc. in the world by opening your Map and setting a GPS WayPoint.

You can easily enter the world at the start of any event from your Garage by selecting the event icon on the map.
