This should come with little to no effort.

The best way to beat Rhymer in his Camaro SS is to just get in front of him. Once in front just look for the Nitro Power-ups. He isn’t too aggressive and leaves big openings for you to pass him. Stay ahead and complete the 2 laps, giving you an easy win.

Come into a corner at a higher speed and hit the :b: which is the handbrake, this will cause your cars back-end to come out and start a drift.

Your screen will start flashing red at the bottom that a shunt is coming at you.

To shoot a power up behind you, press down on the :ls: and shoot with the :a: .

Execute 4 clean, triple Nitros

  • To do this you have to use 3 Nitros consecutively one after another without a pause. The easiest place to do these are on the 5th event – “Barcelona Gracia.” You can gather 3 Nitros at the beginning of the lap fairly easily. As soon as you take the turn into the very long straight away, mash the :a: until you have used all three of your Nitro Power-ups while keeping in a straight line and not hitting a wall. Do this 4 times total and this will be checked off. Once you complete this you can just quit the race.

Get in front of him and just keep picking up Nitro Power-ups, he won’t be able to keep up to your speed and you will leave him in the dirt. If you do pick up Power-ups while you are ahead, shoot them behind you on long straight aways and you may be able to get a hit on him. This will slow him down further, helping you beat this easy but brutally fast One-on-One.

Story Related Misc.

Getting into the swing of things

Generally everything that you do counts for Fans.

Somebody stop me!
Earn every Primary Light on Hard difficulty

To earn this achievement you complete the primary goals on every race with your difficulty set to hard. While you are in the stage select screen you press :y: to bring up the difficulty select screen. Set it to hard, and complete all the races coming in first. You don’t have to do Fan Targets or Fan Runs for this. As those are secondary lights, not Primary. If you are unsure of wither you’ve completed a race on Hard, in each race that you completed in 1st place on hard, there will be a little orange pyramid in the upper right hand corner of the race choice similar to the achievement tile.

General Tips:

  • Car choice is very important on hard. Do not take on an off road course with cars such as the Nissan 350Z or the Supra, pick the Trucks that have high grip and can maneuver through the off road tracks with ease. Also if you keep failing with one car , try another.
  • Wait until you reach the max fan level of 25 so you have the best choice of cars for every race. You should easily do this before the end of your first run on career mode

Race Tips:

  • Take advantage of Fan Demands and the power ups they give you. A.I opponents can’t pick them up so purposely fail the Fan demand to continuously get its power up
  • Mod Selection is important , use whichever mod fits your preference however i recommend the mod Fan Nitro which is unlocked after you defeat Rhymer in Fan Service. For very 500 fans you get a Nitro Power up which can help you widen the gap against those annoying A.I
  • Once you’re in the lead stay defensive and drive smart, pick up shields and power ups to deflect endless shunts

Destruction Tips:

  • Know your Target , if you’re aiming at the Yellow Hummer only shoot 2 bolts , If you’re aiming at a green or blue car it only takes 1 bolt to wreck them. Don’t waste your bolts carelessly
  • Ammo, feel free to unload 3 bolt shoots as soon as you see a new bolt power up coming up when you already have a full stock of them
  • Wreck them fast, the faster you wreck the vehicles the more that re-spawn, don’t wait for them to be in site, look for the beam of light and if it’s in your range of fire go for it
  • Shoot from an angle, some events will need a large amount of points and you need to start alive for that, don’t shoot to close to the point where there recoil is unavoidable

Checkpoint Tips:

  • Save Nitro for straight aways or tight corners, with the tight corners you can drift into them and then nitro your way out to keep yourself at a high-speed
  • On hard the stopwatches hold a huge factor, collect AS many as you can, any that cross your path.
  • If you keep failing try different paths on the course, you may find one way a lot more beneficial than there.

Bolt 50 Incoming Power-Ups

Hit 3 different cars from a single Bolt Power-up

  • Each Bolt Power-up gives you three missile shots, unless you use the Overbolt mod that you get from defeating Shannon in her One-on-One in “Proving Grounds”, giving you four bolt shots from one Power-up. Take your time and make sure you have a shot for a different car every time. If you miss, you will have an extra shot from her mod.

Fire all 4 Bolts from a Power-up into any car

  • To fire 4 bolts you must have Shannon’s Overbolt mod by beating her One-on-One in “Proving Grounds”. While a car is straight ahead of you, rapidly shoot the bolts at the opponents car. All 4 must hit the car, a confirmation of “Fully Bolted” will show up if you hit the opponent with all the bolts.

Fire 3 Bolts from a Power-up and wreck a car

Barge an incoming attack

  • Wait til a Shunt is coming at your car, when it is about to hit your car use your Barge and it will cancel out the shunt coming at you.

Furiously fast
Master the Nitro Power-up

These can be completed in Single Player or Multiplayer.

Nitro overtake 250 cars

Airbrake Rift 3 or more cars at once

  • To Airbrake Rift you must have a Nitro Power-up, push down on the :ls: and use the Nitro Power-up. A total of 3 cars must hit your pile up that you start with Power-up.

In first use 3 airbrakes and go on to win a Race

  • While in first place, use 3 airbrakes and then come in first to win the race. This is better done on single player, go into career mode on easy, choose an event and get the 3 nitro power ups and use them all when you see the finish line in sight.

Land 100 Longshots in Destruction

  • Longshots are single bolts that hit an opponent at a very far distance. To confirm you got a Longshot, it will say, “Longshot +25”.

Wreck 50 red cars in Destruction

  • Use a Nitro Power up while going though all the Checkpoints in an event.

Shocking
Master the Shock Power-up

  • Keep gathering Shock Power-ups, shocking opponents counts for singleplayer and multiplayer. Each time an opponent drives through your Lightning dome, it counts as one shock.
  • An opponent will have to drive into more than one of your shocks, each shock Power-up gives you three domes for opponents to hit. You will get this while going for the 250 shocks.

From a single Shock make every dome count

  • Your opponents must not be able to avoid the shocks and hit all 3 of the domes. This will come naturally as you are going for 250 shocks.

Avoid your own Shock in Carver’s One-on-One

  • While playing Carcer’s One-on-One, pick up a shock and throw it down while you are in first place, then avoid all three domes and this will be completed.

It’s a trap!
Master the Mine Power-up

Mine 250 cars

  • Mine a total of 250 cars, either shooting in front of you or dropping then behind you. As long as an enemy hits it, it will count as a mine.

Destroy 50 Mines (Hitting them doesn’t count)

  • Destroying mines is just like destroying shunts but usually stationary. You can bolt and barge them once you are near them. This may take some time to accomplish but isn’t too hard of a task. A good way to do it is while you’re in last place, look for the mines other players drop and you can your power ups to destroy them while you drive pass without the worry of interrupts by other players

Score 20 Forward Mine Hotshots

  • A Forward Mine Hotshot is by shooting a mine forward in front of a car, the mine stops at a certain distance ahead and the car runs into the mine. Repeat 20 times to complete this. To shoot the forward mine you have to hold up on the :ls: which shooting.

Medic!
Master the Repair Power-up

Repair 500 Blocks of health>

  • This will come naturally while playing, you will be picking up a lot of Repair Power-ups during your playthrough. This is cumulative throughout Single Player and Multiplayer.

Repair on damage critical and just before a Power-up hits

  • When your car is in critical (Any power-up that you would take would wreck you) and a Shunt is coming at you, have a repair ready and when it’s right near you, repair and once it hits you it will be complete. This basically will come naturally during racing just to stay alive.

Win a Race on damage critical whilst carrying a repair in Single Player

  • Come in first place on a race while you are in the light Red part of your health bar while holding a Repair Power-up.(One or two Bolt Power-up hits will wreck you) If you’re having trouble getting this go into the first event of career mode on easy, let yourself get pummeled by power ups, hold shields with you and that one repair and avoid any shocks used at all cost.

Master Race events

In a Race complete a lap without getting hit by any Power-up

Shields can become a big help for this, try and get a far lead from the pack and get in first place. Get a fast car and you shouldn’t have much trouble with this.

Power-up hit 5 different cars in Midas Touch Event

You will naturally get this so long as you regularly attack the other cars with power-ups

Hit with every type of Power-up in one Race

You will probably get this naturally however if you want to be sure just let one Shunt hit you, run into one Mine and run into a Shock Dome. When you see an opponent grab the Barge go next to them and wait for them to use it, and lastly stay in front or behind someone with a Bolt

Win 25 Career Races

This will unlock naturally as your progress through the campaign, coming in 1st-3rd place counts as a win.

For the fans
Master Fan Demands

Fan Demands are found later in the Single Player, they are specific “Demands” the fans want you to complete. They are found floating around just like Power-ups but have a Fan with a heart over them. They usually want you to do something specific with certain Power-ups. (Ex. Forward Mine x2 – They give you two mines in your slots and you must complete it by the time the Fan timer has run out.)

Complete 50 Fan Demands

Complete all Fan Demands in an Event

For this you have to find a race event with Fan Demands in them. Fan Demands start appearing on the 3rd Event series named “Fan Favorite.” A fairly easy event to complete all the Fan Demands is the first event found in “Fan Favorite”, the third event series. There are a total of 4 Fan Demands you must complete in a total of 3 laps. I recommend using the Toyota Supra (Smooth) for this. Below are the locations and what you need to do for each of the 4 Fan Demands:

Fan Demand #1 – Shunt Hit x2

Power-ups given: 2 Shunt Power-ups

How to complete: Keep an opponent in front of you at all times, then shoot both Shunt Power-ups at your opponent. Once they both hit this is complete.

Fan Demand #2 – Drift Bolt Hit
Power-up given: Bolt Power-up

How to complete: At the next upcoming turn, initiate a turn by hitting :b: and turn at a hard angle. This will cause you to drift and be a little sideways. After you are in the drift, shoot your Bolts at the opponents in front of you. Only 1 bolt needs to hit for it to be complete, not the entire Power-up. A nice tip is that you can pick up other Bolts while going around the lap, initiate this Fan Demand, and just shoot away until you hit a person near you.

Fan Demand #3 – Nitro Overtake
Power-up given: Nitro Power-up

How to complete: After you started the Fan Demand, just have opponents around you. Start the Nitro and get into a better position then what you were last at. (Example: Going from 3rd place to 2nd place) Basically just pass an opponent.

Fan Demand #4 – Nitro Ram
Power-up given: Nitro Power-up

How to complete: Have a car a bit ahead of you, then start the Nitro. As you are in the Nitro, hit an opponent from behind and it will give you this with ease.

You can’t touch this
Master the Shield Power-up

Shield 150 incoming attacks

Whenever you hold the Shield power-up, just use it when you see a power-up about to hit you from behind. Do this 150 times, you’ll be sure to get it during online play.

Shield 3 or more Power-ups with a single Shield

The best time to do this would be when you’re in the middle of a large group of players, use your Shield and hope the crossfire comes your way

Shield 50 incoming close range Power-ups

For this you must use the Shield power-up at the very last second right before the power-up is about to hit you, find the timing and keep using the Shield at that timing and you should get it in no time

Hold on to a Shield for 1 lap and win the Race

Simply put, take a Shield power-up and just don’t use it, you can drive around Shock Domes and use Reserve Shunts or Mines to counter incoming attacks Complete 20 different Fan Runs Complete all Fan Runs (54) Go through 500 Fan Gates

Who needs cone gates?
Master Fan Runs

Master Fan Runs All of these requirements will be met so long as you complete every Fan run on each event. Later Fan Runs give you less time to make the next gate so keep your speed up. Also, if you find the path through the gates too difficult to smoothly run through then wait for the enemy A.I’s to pull ahead and then start the Fan Run. If you’re doing this though make sure you complete the Fan Run on the first lap so you can catch up and get credit for completing it in the end

Incoming!
Master the Shunt Power-up

Shunt 250 cars

Shunts are the red power-ups, they lock on the first opponent in its path, you will probably get this naturally through your campaign.

Destroy 100 incoming Shunts

You can destroy Shunts by shooting Reserve Shunts or Bolts as well as using a Barge once they are close.

Avoid 100 Shunts through driving evasion

The best way to do this is to use the Shunt Evasion mod that is unlocked later in multiplayer, if you don’t have this mod just wait until the Shunt in your rear view mirror and then take a sharp turn in a different direction, sometimes you’ll evade it sometimes you won’t.

Reverse skillshot 100 cars with Shunt

To reverse skillshot you must simply hold down :rs: when your using the Shunt, it makes it a lot easier if there’s a large group behind you or if you’re targeting an enemy on a straightaway. After you have completed and passed a race, you will be given the option to Continue/Create Friend Challenge/Retry. Choose Create Friend Challenge, add any friend on your friends list that has this game, then select Setup Challenge. The challenge details will be listed then hit Send at the very bottom. Have your friend send you a Friend Challenge. To accept a friend challenge in the Single Player, while in the Single Player select screen, choose the “Friend Challenges” option. This screen will display all your received challenges from your friends. Select one and that will count as accepting it. Once you have selected a Friend Challenge, you will be put into the race. Beat the criteria in the upper left hand corner of your screen(1st-3rd, Fan Target) Beat these in the set race and you will have completed the sent challenge. Once you have completed and beat your friends challenge. You will be given the option of Re-challenging your friend. Select to Re-challenge him and send him your score on their challenge you just beat. Choose Event 1 in Double Trouble and pick any non drift car. This is by far the easiest one, just don’t hit any walls and you’ll hit 200 mph during one of your laps. This race has a highway part that goes on for a long time and you if you stay in control and don’t hit any other cars or walls, you will hit 200 mph at the end.

Speed Demon
Hit set speeds in class A, B, C and D cars

For this achievement you must reach a certain speed, on a certain level, in a certain car class without using a Nitro Power-up. Before attempting all the set speeds, let your opponents pull away so you don’t have to worry about unneeded power up attacks , wait at the starting line for 20 seconds or more. Set the difficulty to hard so the A.I actually go fast enough to keep a large gap

Hit 150mph in a class D car in Amboy

Hit 160mph in a class C car in Docks

Hit 175mph in a class B car in Downtown

A good tip if you’re having trouble with this still is to use a shield power up when going into the turn going out of the tunnel, it’ll bump you off the wall to keep a bit more of your speed then a regular crash without the shield would. Also the mod Titanium Shield gives the shield power up stronger so it doesn’t hurt to add that in as well.

Start by coming out of the tunnel into the far right lane.

After that turn, have a shield ready to put up for the next turn. You want to take it wide so you keep your speed around 110-115.

Once you have done a clean turn, you will go up hill and hit a minor bump that will send you up in the air. You want to be going 124-127mph on this jump. If you aren’t, there is no chance of making it. After that just keep accelerating straight into the wall at the end. Do not turn! You should hit the wall going exactly 175 if done correctly, this may take multiple attempts as this is the hardest one to complete.

Hit 200mph in a class A car in Shutuko.
