ELEVEN-FIFTY SIX
Take down 100 Cop Vehicles

This may well be one of the last trophies/achievements you will earn in Need For Speed Heat, all depends on how you play and how aggressively you go after the cops.
If you are struggling to take them down, go for a large vehicle like the Raptor truck to take them out a lot easier, once you’ve taken out your 100th cop vehicle, your Trophy / Achievement will unlock

WARP SPEED
Hit 240mph using any car

You’ll need a very high-performance car for this one. Personally I waited until after I had the Regera (reach REP level 50) this is the fastest car in the game, find a nice straight piece of road and floor it, hit your NOS when everything goes blurry which will push you well over the 240mph mark which will then unlock your Trophy / Achievement

TWO RACERS, ONE EVENT
Beat your first Crew Time Trial

At the start of the game you will be placed into a random crew then your next aim is to reach reputation level 10, to reach reputation level 10 you will have to earn a total of 30k reputation by taking part in night races
With that done enter your garage, press the OPTIONS/START button, then press R1/RB until you reach the social tab, then select crew time trials
These time trials task you with beating a need for speed ghost, the ghost is not very fast so simply complete the time trial and cross the finish line ahead of the ghost to unlock your Trophy / Achievement

BE THE VERY BEST
Get all Collectibles and 3 stars on all Activities

This will more than likely be the last trophy/achievement you’ll unlock in NFS Heat as you need to collect all 100 flamingos (See Get Shrimpin‘) all 130 street art (see Graffer) all 85 billboards (see A Bit Of Paradise) 3 Star all 40 long jumps (see Full Send) 3 Star all 45 speed traps (see Danger Zone) and 3 Star all 35 drift zones (see Drift, Drift, Drift)
Once you have completed/collected all 315 collectibles and 3 Starred all 120 Activities, your Trophy / Achievement will unlock. Have fun

COMEBACK KID
Go from last to first place during the final lap of a race and win

First up, you need to go to a low-level circuit race, the lower the recommended performance rating, the easier this will be to accomplish.
The circuit race itself needs to have at least 3 laps then by the end of the 2nd lap you need be in last place. But not too far behind as you still need to win.
Once you’re on the final lap, race as fast as you can, ensure you get into first place and then go on to win the race
If you’re struggling with this one, go off and improve your performance rating, the rating of the race won’t increase, giving you near enough limitless scope to be fast enough to unlock this Trophy/Achievement

CARVING TURNS
Complete the Drift driving story

There are several events to complete for Wayne, the current drift King. Drifting in this iteration of NFS is easier than ever. Go into the corners hard, slap the brake/handbrake and then apply opposite lock (turn left when going right and vice versa) you’ll have this one done in no time. The target scores are very low, which will of course help
Make sure your car is set up for drifting in the performance section of the garage, for me I found it a lot easier to control only going about halfway to maximum drift performance to make the car a lot more controllable.
The last couple of events will be at night so you’ll need to lose the cops after hitting the target score
Once you have completed the final event you’ll unlock your Trophy / Achievement

OFF THE GRID
Complete the Off-road driving story

You can start the Off-Road driving story when you’re roughly halfway through the main story, you’ll be racing a series of events against and with Roshni, they’re all pretty simple, grab a decent off-roader like the Evo or the Impreza, spec the vehicle for Off-Roading in the garage and have at it.
Once you complete the Off-Road storyline, your Trophy / Achievement will unlock

FRIENDS REUNITED
Complete the Race driving story

This is essentially the main story in NFS Heat, keep progressing through the game hitting the required REP level to be able to complete the next event, you’ll be racing for and against Dex, the final event in the race driving story will require REP level 40 and has a performance rating of 350, bring your best vehicle, once you take the win and complete the race driving story your Trophy / Achievement will unlock

WRAP IT UP!
Customize a vehicle with a wrap

You can unlock this one any time after you have completed the first main mission Make A Name. Once completed, you will be placed in the garage where you will install your first nitrous system.
Straight after this, you will unlock the customisation option. It’s in here you can add your wrap. Select body, then wrap then edit wrap and finally the paint tab.
Simply select a colour from the palette then save upon exiting to unlock your Trophy/Achievement

Simply complete any 1 of these challenges, to unlock your Trophy / Achievement

DRIFT, DRIFT, DRIFT
Complete all Drift Zones

There are 35 Drift Zones in NFS Heat. The best vehicle to use for these is the SRT Viper GTS ’14 which becomes available at REP level 28 for $121,500
Go to the garage, then performance. Place the best drift setup on your vehicle that you feel comfortable with, go out and check out the feel of your car then tweak accordingly. When you do a drift zone, make sure you “snake” up or down the road making good use of the width of the road to get maximum drift points.
Sometimes the game will have to much traffic to be able to get your drift zone completed successfully, simply restart, learn the route to have an easier time of it.
Please Note – you only need to get 1 star in each of the 35 drift zones to unlock this Trophy / Achievement
However, if you’re going for the Platinum or 100% on your Gamerscore you’re going to have to get 3 stars in all drift zones
Check the video below for a full in-depth guide on how to get 3 stars in every drift zone

TECHIN’
Win a race with parts equipped in both auxiliary part slots

You can access both auxiliary slots once you have hit REP level 15. Go to garage, performance, purchase both a passive and active auxiliary mod which will cost 10k each.
Once completed, go off and win a race, either Circuit or Sprint, once you cross the finish line in 1st place, you’ll unlock this Trophy / Achievement

BLAME THE VAIN
Win a race with all vehicle effects slots equipped

Quite an easy one to get done, wait until you’re a good way through the game so you have enough cash for these items you need to buy.
Go to garage, then customisation, then effects, simply purchase all of the following

  • Nitrous Colour
  • Tire Smoke
  • Under Glow
  • Air Suspension
  • Horn

These will cost you 37.5k cash, hence why I said leave it until later, upgrades are a lot more important early on.
Once you’ve bought all 5 effects, go and win any race event, circuit or sprint. As soon as you take first place your Trophy / Achievement will unlock

TRAVIS, WHO?
Escape 100 Cop Chases

You should be able to get this through natural progression if you’re going for the Platinum or 100% of your Gamerscore
Unfortunately, there’s no way of checking to see how many you have done. The easiest way to escape a cop chase is to drive up and down the straights, when you see a cop coming the other way, make sure it sees you then floor it, you should be able to escape pretty quick
If you are grinding these out, always keep your at or below level 2 to make sure you can escape. As soon as you have escaped your 100th cop chase, your Trophy / Achievement will unlock

BENEFITS ARE NICE
Complete 25 events online with other players

This one can be frustrating, due to you having to complete the event with other players, if they disconnect, the event won’t count towards your 25.
First up, make sure you’re playing online, then go to any event and choose to invite players. The other players in your lobby will have roughly 30 seconds to accept the invite and join you, this can be boosted by private invites if you have a friend online, making this a lot easier to get.
Then go off and complete the event, you can do these 25 events across the same event or different events, entirely your choice
Either way, as soon as you have complete 25 events online with other players, your Trophy / Achievement will unlock

GET SHRIMPIN’
Collect all the Flamingos

In total, there are 100 Flamingos spread across Palm City, you can start collecting these once you hit REP level 13. To collect a Flamingo, simply drive through it.
You will collect some very nice boosts to your REP along the way including some nice new tyre smoke once you have collected them all.
To see their exact locations, check the video out below. As soon as you have collected your 100th Flamingo, your Trophy / Achievement will unlock

AT THE LAST SECOND
Repair critical damage at a Gas Station at night

You don’t need to be in a cop chase or online race to get this done. Simply go out at night, find a gas station, ram into the gas station until your cars health bar starts flashing red.
When it does, driver through the gas station, where you’ll repair your vehicle as well as unlock your Trophy / Achievement

GRAFFER
Collect all Street Art

There are 130 pieces of street art scattered across Palm City, to collect them, it’s simply a case of driving up to the street art, then pressing R1/RB
You can collect them in any order and from REP level 8, along the way you will pick up some very nice REP boosts as well as some decent rewards once you have them all.
Please see the video below for all 130 street art locations.
Once you have collected all 130 street art, your Trophy / Achievement will unlock

THE MOST WANTED
Win a High Heat 5 race and return to garage safely

Definitely on the harder end of the difficulty scale, I’d recommend leaving this one until you’re REP level 50 and have access to the Regera. This can only be achieved at nighttime
Make sure there’s a Heat Level 5 race available by leaving the garage and checking the World Map, this will be symbolised by a flaming tyre symbol with a 5 in the middle.
Once you have the event on the map, you now need to get yourself to heat level 5 by completing races and getting the cops after you. The problem is, you need to lose the cops once you’re heat level 5 to be able to start the Heat Level 5 event
It will take a lot of luck and even more skill to be able to do this, driving fast and precise is the best way to lose the cops, however, the cops are so aggressive in NFS Heat this is a tall order.
You need to try and lose the cops as close to the Heat Level 5 race as possible to increase your chances of even starting the event, then just hope the cops don’t start chasing you through the event itself.
Once the event is complete, get to the safehouse as soon as you can where your Trophy / Achievement will unlock

FULL SEND
Complete all Long Jumps

There are 40 long jumps across Palm City, I recommend leaving these until after you hit REP level 50 and have unlocked the Regera. It’s pretty much a case of lining yourself up with the jump the flooring it, use your NOS at the right time to get the greatest speed boost, hit the middle of the jump, sit back and wait for the landing.

You only need to get 1 star across all 40 long Jjmps to unlock your Trophy / Achievement.
However, if you’re going for the Platinum or 100% of your GamerScore, you will need 3 stars across all 40 jumps
Below is a video showing the locations and how to get 3 stars in all 40 long jumps.
As soon as you have at least 1 star in each of the 40 long jumps, your Trophy / Achievement will unlock

ALL FOR ONE
Reach max Crew Level with your Crew

This can be a strange one and it all depends on how lucky/connected you are withing NFS Heat.
On one hand, you could have a real struggle getting the crew to level 50, especially if the other people in the crew aren’t pulling their weight.
On the other hand, you could request to join a level 50 crew which will unlock your trophy/achievement straight away
Whichever way you decide to do this one, you’re more than likely in for a long slog, as soon as you either earn or join a crew that’s level 50, your Trophy / Achievement will unlock

SIDEWAYS STYLE
Win a race with handling parts for maximum drift equipped

Near enough car will be able to have maximum handling parts equipped, to make sure, head to the garage, then select performance.
Once in there make sure you purchase the vehicle parts that affect your handling setup best, as long as the white dot is anywhere on the handling line, go off and win a race where your Trophy / Achievement will unlock

THE HACKNEY DREAM
Win a race with handling parts for maximum off-road traction equipped

You’ll need an Off-Road vehicle for this one, something like the Ford F-150 Raptor, go into the garage, then performance and purchase all car parts that put your white dot on the line with the Off-Road section, it can be anywhere on this line, as long as the Off-Road line is directly in the middle of the dot, then simply go off and win any race, it doesn’t have to be an off-road race, although it will help, given the setup. Once you take the win your Trophy / Achievement will unlock

COMPONENT PARTS
Win a race with handling parts for maximum road traction equipped

You’ll be able to get this one pretty much from the start of the game. Head to the garage with whichever car you have, go to performance then choose any of the parts needed to push the white dot to the road traction line.
As long as the road traction line is in the middle of the white dot, go off and win any race where your Trophy / Achievement will unlock
