Earn a Distinction in every single-player Cop event

In total, there are 48 cop missions (DLC doesn’t count towards this one) you will need to earn a distinction in which is no simple task
I recommend when you start the game, you aim at completing the missions rather than going for a distinction, if you can get one then great
As you make your way through the game you will unlock more powerful cars that can make some of the more difficult missions a lot easier to achieve a distinction in
The 48 missions are spread over 4 separate types of event, they are

Hot Pursuit
These events will have you going after a series of racers where you both have weaponised vehicles, you will need to take every racer down to earn a distinction. If a racer falls behind you, leave it to catch up and go after the ones in front, if you focus on the back of the pack, you’ll rarely catch up and be able to take out the front runners
Take them all down to earn a distinction

In an Interceptor, you will need to take down one skilled racer, you are both usually weaponised given you a slight advantage as the cop, however, some of these racers are very skilled at pulling u-turns and jamming your mini map, keep a good eye on them, ensuring you take them down within the time limit to earn your distinction

Rapid Response
These are very similar to the Preview events, except they are usually in less powerful vehicles. You will need to learn the course and the best shortcuts to take as well as having good luck with the traffic in the game. Sometimes you can take a perfect racing line just to find a vehicle blocking your path with no way around it.
Beat the time limit to earn your distinction

This mode has you driving from point a to point b in a very high end car in a strict time limit, learn the route and more importantly, learn which shortcuts to take, some shortcuts have a lot more obstacles than the main road
This makes them more of a hindrance than a help, practice the course a few times and you’ll see a big decrease in the times you will be posting
Beat the time limit to earn your distinction

After you have earnt a distinction in all 48 cop events, your Trophy / Achievement will unlock

Earn a Gold Medal in every single-player Racer event

In total, there are 60 racer events (DLC doesn’t count towards this one) you will need to earn a gold medal in. The racer events are a lot easier than the cop events as you don’t get penalties for hitting the side of the track or traffic
If you are struggling with an event, come back to it later where you will either have a more powerful vehicle or a better understanding of how the cars handle
The 60 racer events are spread over 6 separate categories, they are

This will see you face off against another racer in a point to point sprint, choose the best car you can. A lot of the time the other racer will seem to pull away, regardless of how well you do, however, you should be able to catch up as long as you stay away from hitting the traffic scattered throughout the event
Ensure you achieve first place to earn a gold medal

A point to point sprint with cops and weapons which can be a bit nasty as you make your way through the game. Use your own weapons efficiently, and you should be able to take the win soon enough. Beat the time to earn a gold medal

Hot Pursuit
These events are the main stay of the game, for the gold medal, you will need to achieve first place whilst not being take down by the cops. You are for the most part weaponised as is your competition so play tactically to take the win

This mode has you driving from point a to point b in a very high end car in a strict time limit, learn the route and more importantly, learn which shortcuts to take, some shortcuts have a lot more obstacles than the main road. This can make them more of a hindrance than a help, practice the course a few times and you’ll see a big decrease in the times you will be posting
Beat the time limit to earn your gold medal

You will be racing against a series of other racers, there are no weapons in races so it’s purely skill based. Get first place to earn your gold medal

Time Trial
Similar to the preview except these can be any cars that are available for the event. Time Trials can be fairly challenging, so make good use of your nitrous and more importantly, learn the course. Practice a good amount of times or come back later when you have access to more powerful vehicles
Beat the time limit to earn your gold medal

Fill the Nitrous bar then use it all in one go without hitting anything 

Another one that should come naturally. Your nitrous bar is the small light blue bar to the left of your speedo, wait for it to fill up where it will then start flashing, get to any long straight, of which there are plenty in the game and use the Nitrous by holding Cross / A
As long as you use all of the Nos without touching anything, your Trophy / Achievement will unlock

Deploy a Road Block which then gets hit by a Racer

The first opportunity you will have at using a road block is in the event Block Buster in the Grand Ocean Coast list. Start the event then press RIGHT on the D-PAD to deploy a roadblock
Providing the racer hits the roadblock, your Trophy / Achievement will unlock

Bronze Image
GS - 10

Get a hit by an EMP

This should come naturally, progress through career mode until you can use the EMP, wait for a racer / cop to be in front of you, preferably on a straight then stay in range for a few seconds whilst the EMP charges up and locks on
As soon as the red square centralises on the target, the EMP will fire, unlocking your Trophy / Achievement

Bronze Image
GS - 10

Get a hit with a Spike Strip

Spike strips become available very early in career mode, get in front of either a cop or a racer, lining yourself up so they’re behind you and fairly close
This is the time to deploy your spike strip, as soon as you are successful in hitting another car with the spikes, your Trophy / Achievement will unlock

Bronze Image
GS - 5

Call in a Helicopter which then hits a Racer with a Spike Strip

Helicopters are only available when playing as a cop and around a third of the way into the career
It is purely luck based whether or not a racer will hit the spike strip that is deployed by the helicopter, but for me they hit roughly 1 in 3 times of deployment so you will get it done soon enough
You will get a message over the radio reporting a confirmed spike hit, where your Trophy / Achievement will then unlock

Bronze Image
GS - 5

First Jammer use that affects a Cop

Play through the career mode where you will soon enough unlock the Jammer. Once it is available, you will need to be in a cop pursuit then as soon as a cop is close to you, activate the Jammer and as long as it affects a cop, your Trophy / Achievement will unlock

Bronze Image
GS - 10

Use a full Turbo without hitting anything

You will unlock Turbos midway through the game, they’re essentially a more powerful version of Nitrous so find yourself a good straight bit of road, activate your Turbo ensuring you don’t hit anything
This is easiest if you are in first place as trying to get pass racers, cops and traffic can make this one a challenge to not hit anything
Once you have used your full Turbo without hitting anything at all, your Trophy / Achievement will unlock

Silver Image
GS - 10

Spike strip a car that is targeting you with an EMP

This can be done as either racer or a cop as they both have spike strips. Keep racing until someone gets a lock on you with an EMP, signified by an on screen message and a red square trying to centralise on the back of your vehicle
Use your rear view mirror to line yourself up then deploy a spike strip before the EMP can hit you. If you are successful, you will stop the EMP lock on as well as unlocking your Trophy / Achievement in the process

As a racer, drive through an undamaged Road Block without hitting it

This unlocked for me whilst I was driving down a road in a pursuit as a racer with no road block in sight which was a bit strange (06-Nov-2020 patch 1.01)
However, to get this done if they have patched it, be a racer where a cop will eventually deploy a road block in front of you, the trick is, to be in first place meaning no other racer has damaged the roadblock then going through fairly slowly either on the sides of the roadblock or in between 2 cop cars either on the left or right side of the roadblock itself
Once you have successfully passed through a roadblock without touching it, your Trophy / Achievement will unlock

Accumulate 2,000 yds of drift in a single event using the Subaru Impreza WRX STI

The Subaru Impreza WRX STI is a car found in the Sports Series so load up an event that accommodates this series such as the Title Fight Duel in the Big Timber Forest area, ensure you choose the Suabru Impreza WRX STI then start the event ensuring you drift as much as possible
In order to initiate a drift, get some good speed up then just as you start turning into the corner tap the SQUARE / X button then feather the LEFT STICK either left or right to keep the drift going. Try not to be aggressive with your steering otherwise you will skid out. When you do a drift you will get a yard counter in the bottom right of the screen to the left of your speedo. Keep a mental note of how many yards you have drifted then if you feel you haven’t done enough, do a 180 before the finish line and run the course again in reverse. You can do this as many times as needed until you manage 2,000 yards total
As soon as you have racked up 2,000 yards + of drifting, cross the finish line where your Trophy / Achievement will unlock

Win the ‘Muscle Reflex’ race in a Bee Yellow Chevrolet Camaro SS

The Muscle Reflex event is part of the Boulder Desert racer event section in the south east corner of the map and can be accessed early in the game, as can the Chevrolet Camaro SS
Ensure the colour is Bee Yellow which is the 2nd colour you can select on the palette then go off and win the race. Once you cross the finish line in the Camaro SS with the Bee Yellow colour, your Trophy / Achievement will unlock

Win any Hot Pursuit in an Aston Martin

Play through career until you are able to use the an Aston Martin in a Hot Pursuit, this can be doe either as a racer or a cop
Ensure you win the event by either first place as a racer or by taking down every racer if you’re playing as a cop to unlock your Trophy / Achievement

Drive any Corvette in the wet

Play through the game until you unlock the event Under Pressure which is an Interceptor in Fox Lair Pass.
Ensure you choose the Corvette and start the event. Once the event has loaded up take down the target, completing the event which will unlock your Trophy / Achievement

Get any medal in ‘Run to the Hills’ driving the Nissan GT-R SpecV without using any weapons

Play through Career until the Run To The Hills event unlock in the East Gorge Canyon, your objective here is to wreck all 5 racers without using a single weapon which may sound daunting but is doable
You are in a very powerful, strong vehicle so use it as a battering ram, going after the leaders in the race
I say that because if you get caught up trying to take down the mush in last place, you’ll seriously struggle catching up and then taking down the leaders
Once you have taken down all 5 racers without using a single weapon, your Trophy / Achievement will unlock

Silver Image
GS - 15

Get Distinction in a Hot Pursuit, Interceptor and Rapid Response using the Audi R8

Play through the game as a cop unlocking the events as you go. You will, eventually unlock the Audi R8 for use which is a very powerful but fairly weak vehicle so you will need to make good use of your weapons to help you get your 3 distinctions which can be done on the following events

Hot Pursuit
Load up the Run to the Hills stage which is found in East Gorge Canyon and will see you take on and subsequently takedown 5 racers

For this one it’s best to load up the Hang Tough course in the Grand Ocean Coast where you will have a strict time limit to take down a tricky racer

Rapid Response
Start the event Guided Missile which is found in the Carson Ridge Reservoir which will see you need to go from point a to point b in record time. This is definitely the hardest of the 3 events as any damage to your vehicle will incur time penalties so drive fast but cautiously, taking your time to perfect the course

Once you have earnt a distinction across all 3 events in the Audi R8, your Trophy / Achievement will unlock

Silver Image
GS - 15

Bust the 918 Spyder using an EMP in ‘Porsche Patrol’

Porsche Patrol is a Hot Pursuit event in the Memorial Valley section towards the south east of the career map
I recommend you hit the Porsche 918 Spyder several times to lower the cars’ health then get a lock on with your EMP until it fires
As long as it’s the EMP that takes out the Porsche rather than any other method, your Trophy / Achievement will unlock

Silver Image
GS - 15

Spike a cop while driving a Black Dodge Viper SRT10 ACR or Ford Shelby GT500 Supersnake

A good event to get this done is the Unreasonable Force, Hot Pursuit in the Carson Ridge Reservoir. Load up ensuring you choose the For Shelby GT500 Super Snake in Black (it will have a red bumper but that’s fine)
Go through the event until a cop chase begins then line yourself up in front of a cop and release your spike strip
As soon as the spikes hit the cop car your Trophy / Achievement will unlock

Wreck 5 cops in the GUMPERT apollo s

Do a 1000 yard (915 metres) drift in the Porsche 911 GT2 RS

The Porsche 911 GT2 RS is one of the last vehicles you will unlock in the game so play through until you get there
Once you have access to it, head over to the Coral Bay area then press TRIANGLE / Y to start Freedrive
Once in Freedrive, head to the section of the map that has a long circular section that goes over the top of itself
Get some good speed up which won’t be a problem in the 911 GT2 RS then aim to drift around the entire corner in one go
This may take you a good number of attempts but it is doable as long as the traffic is on your side and stays out the way
Complete a 1000 yard+ drift to unlock your Trophy / Achievement

Hold the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport at top speed for 2 seconds

Top speed for the Veyron Super Sport is 258mph which will take a good straight piece of road and a full nitrous tank to get to, you then need to maintain the speed for 2 seconds which is only achievable if you stay going dead straight, any deviation in course here and you will lose 1 or 2 mph negating your attempt until you’re back to full speed again
Aiming to get this one in the desert will be your best bet so get yourself over there and practice until you hit 258mph for 2 seconds where your Trophy / Achievement will unlock
