Need for Speed: Most Wanted 2012 Achievements Guide

This first video guide covers a bunch of multiplayer achievements in one go, including License to ill, In Your Face & Nothing Personal.

1. Most Wanted Rides (100G) — Own all the Most Wanted cars (Single Player)

2. Got to Smash Them All (25G) — Smashed every Billboard

To find & smash all 159 Billboards, check out our Need for Speed: Most Wanted 2012 Billboards Locations Guide.

3. The Gatecrasher (25G) — Broke through every Security Gate

Tip: Security Gates conceal escape routes, shortcuts and more. As such you can mostly find them in areas that have a lot of Billboards, Jack Spots & Speed Cameras.

4. Love Them and Leave Them (30G) — Drove every Car

To find & drive all 42 cars, check out our guide that explains How To Unlock All Need for Speed: Most Wanted 2012 Cars.

6. Cameraman (25G) — Triggered every Speed Camera

7. Go Pro or Go Home (15G) — Unlocked all the Pro mods on a car (Single Player)

11. Kitchen Sink (10G) — Used a Billboard and a Jack Spot to successfully evade a pursuit (Single Player)

First of all you need to attract the attention of the cops. Break the speed limit, cause some property damage or drive into a police car to make them chase you. You will then have to destroy a Billboard, change your car at a Jack Spot (Triangle on PS3 / Y on X360) and escape the police. The Billboards respawn, so don’t worry if you have destroyed them already.

12. The Heat is Off (20G) — Escaped successfully from all Heat levels

13. Social Climber (10G) — Have 5 or more NFS friends

14. How Do You Like Me Now? (15G) — Beat a friend’s Autolog Recommendation

31. Main Avent (20G) — Shut down Most Wanted car number 4: Lamborghini Aventador (Single Player)

32. White Gold (20G) — Shut down Most Wanted car number 3: Bugatti Veyron Super Sport (Single Player)

33. Mighty Wind (20G) — Shut down Most Wanted car number 2: Pagani Huayra (Single Player)

34. Don’t Blink (45G) — Shut down Most Wanted car number 1: Koenigsegg Agera R (Single Player)

You will unlock the last Most Wanted race after getting 1 million speed points. Speed points are a reward for winning races, exploring the world, beating autolog recommendations and escaping the cops. Use a really fast car for the last race! After finishing first you will have to take down the Koenigsegg Agera R by ramming it. This will end the actual “story”, but you can still free roam and get missing collectibles or repeat your favorite races!
For example: You can use the Lamborghini Aventador car, without any tuning, with only Nitro customization equipped.

35. Gotcha (15G) — Got Busted for the first time

36. First Strike (5G) — Took down your first Cop

37. Troublemaker (30G) — Took down 50 Cops

38. Slip the Cuffs (10G) — Drove through a roadblock without hitting it

39. Battering Ram (10G) — Smashed through a roadblock without crashing

40. Sidewinder (25G) — Did a 250 yard (228.6 meter) drift

Drifts can be done by using the brake while driving at medium speed and steering left or right. Parking garages are a great place to do this. One can be found on Bloomguard Street (around the center of the world map). Get a car with good handling and drift your way up the garage.

41. Mauled (30G) — Wrecked 10 cops in a single pursuit in the Ford F-150 SVT Raptor

42. Beast from the East (30G) — Escaped from the cops in the Marussia B2

43. Iron Boots (20G) — Drove over 5 spike strips with re-inflates equipped

44. Gladiator (25G) — Took down every racer at least once in a single race

45. Escape Velocity (20G) — Jumped over 200 yards (182.88 meters) through a Billboard

You will need a really fast light-weight car to do this. The Ariel Atom 500 V8 is a good choice. Try to get all upgrades for it and equip the Powershot Nitrous customization. There are a total of 156 Billboards. However, only very few of them make a 200 yard jump possible. Look for two circular glas structures on Gunderson Avenue North (pretty much in the middle of the world map). Both of them have a Billboard and can be used as a huge ramp. The Billboards respawn, so don’t worry if you have destroyed them already.
It’s very important that you do not crash your vehicle when landing. Neither will the game recognize that you destroyed the Billboard, nor will it give you credit for the jump if you crash.

46. Fast Forward (20G) — Triggered a speed camera at over 200mph (321.97km/h)

You will need a vehicle with good top speed stats to accomplish this (e.g. Bugatti Veyron or upgraded Lamborghini Gallardo). There are a total of 66 different speed cameras. You can trigger them how often you want. Search one on the highway and use nitro to reach the 200mph. Beat drivers on the Most Wanted list for their fast cars and win races to acquire upgrades. Especially the long gear customization can be very helpful when trying this!
