Cheats for Need for Speed Most Wanted (Criterion)

Hint: Easy upgrades

  • All platforms
  • code
Before you can do anything, you must win the Burger King Challenge. When you win it, you will unlock all unique parts (also called Junkman parts). Get any car and put all the parts except performance. Once you have your car the way you desire, go to the performance shop. Max out your car by pressing B. Then, put the Junkman parts on. Max out your car again. Then put on the Junkman parts again. Your car should be fully upgraded.

Hint: Junkman parts

  • All platforms
  • code
If you try to put Junkman parts on you car in career mode, it will not work. You can only do this at the main menu. Alex Kelts.

Hint: Sharp turns

  • All platforms
  • code
When there is a sharp turn coming up, use your Speed Breaker when you are a little farther away from the turn. Turn your wheel to the direction that you are turning, then turn your wheel to the opposite side. Try to use Speed Breaker only half of while you are taking the turn. If you use it for the entire turn, you will likely turn around. Once you have turned, quickly use nitrous. If done correctly, you will turn three times faster than the CPU cars. Prince Vaghani.

Hint: Easy money

  • All platforms
  • code
If you are low on cash, just defeat one of the opponents on the black-list. You will get two marks to use on several different things. Do not use them on the Uniques early in the game. Instead, use them on the middle or the left "Random" choices. They should always come out to either be a big cash bonus or the opponent's pink slip. Robert.

Hint: Getting the most money from selling your car

  • All platforms
  • code
When in your safe house and you sell a car, you will only get half of its list value. However, there is a loophole that works well for pink slips that you have won and no longer want. Take your car to the shop. Go to the parts area. Go into the body kit, spoiler, hood, rims, and roof air areas and set everything to stock. When you check out, you will see anywhere from $1,000 to $18,000, depending on what pink slip car you are stripping. Do not try this with performance parts. The shop charges you money for downgrading. Once you have stripped your car of all accessories, leave. Press Start, then go to your safe house. Sell the car, and you will have made a lot of money on the side. Do this every time you intend to sell any car. David SKi.

Hint: Free maxed out car in career mode:

  • All platforms
  • code
Enable the "Burger King challenge" and "One Stop Shop marker" codes. Win the Burger King challenge. Buy the Fiat as your first car. Defeat the Bosses and win their cars. Each time, sell their car to make a large amount of money. When you get the Lamborghini Gallardo, go to the One Stop parts shop. You should have a lot of Junkman Markers and a few Boss Markers (optional) by now. Put the Junkman parts on the Lamborghini. IT should have almost maxed out acceleration and top speed with over maximum handling. Amir N..

Hint: Nitrous boosting

  • All platforms
  • code
It is critical when you get past Blacklist Member #6 to use your nitrous wisely and strategically. Instead of just holding Nitrous in desperation to get ahead, press and release it when the tachometer is about to shift to the next gear. Upon the next gear shift, continue pressing Nitrous until the next upcoming gear shift. This is the way precious milliseconds are spared. Command Station.

Hint: Longer lasting nitrous

  • All platforms
  • code
When you are racing and want to use boost or nitrous, press it as fast as you can to have more or have it last longer. pablo reyes.

Hint: Timebreaker

  • All platforms
  • code
The Timebreaker can be used to improve handling at difficult turns. It can also be used to blast cars from a roadblock. The Timebreaker adds mass to the vehicle, thus blasting cop cars easier. Hit cop cars like this, and if you are lucky you can send them spinning in the air; often hitting the level boundary in the sky. Atsuke.

Hint: Pursuit Breakers

  • All platforms
  • code
If you are driving toward a Pursuit Breaker and there is a spike strip immediately after it, do not hit the Pursuit Breaker. During the intermission sequence, the CPU will take control of your car and will drive through the spike strip, ending the pursuit. sportsfreak3492.
