Need For Speed - Hot Pursuit: Tips & Tricks

This VideoJug addition gives you useful tips on how to win in Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit. Whether you're a cop or a racer, braking is a key element in winning. Be sure to pay close attention to the explanation of this tip.

Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit is the latest arcade racer from Criteriad Studios, the creator of Burnout series. A key thing that stands out about the Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit series is that it's basically cops and robbers. Cops get road blocks, spike strips, and helicopters.

Robbers, they're actually called racers, get jammers to neutralize the spike strips and turbo for extra speed. When it comes to winning career races in NFS, the best thing you can do is play the offline games and learn the tracks. Not only do you learn the routes, you learn the shortcuts.

They should be marked in orange on your map but it's always better to know where you're going. They key thing you need to win in races is to get your cornering right. Basically, you should take the racing line.

Pretty much, swing out wide before you turn and go in reasonably slow. Come out fast. Doing it this way should reduce the amount of braking you need in order to get around.

When it comes to Need for Speed, you have an emergency brake. You shouldn't really need to use it for corners. If you do find yourself needing to use it, you're probably taking them wrong.

As long as you get it right, you should only really need to brake drift to get through. When it comes to nitric, racers and cops use it in different ways. Racers, the easiest way to do that is to drive in the oncoming traffic.

Cops don't actually get any nitric from driving in the oncoming lane. What you should do is stick to your own lane but drive fast. The other way to get it is to drift a lot.

When it comes to using your nitric, one of the worst things you can do is microburst. What you should do is hold it for more than two seconds because the more you use, the faster you go. Basically, save your nitric boosts for really long straights or maintaining your top speed when you're going up a hill, little boosts that add maybe one or two miles per hour, complete waste of time.
