Need for Speed: Most Wanted (PS3)

Need for Speed: Most Wanted (PS3) Trophies
The Heat is Off
Escape successfully from all Heat levels

There are 6 heat levels in a pursuit, with this trophy requiring you to escape from each heat level individually. The heat levels can be done anytime you wish and in any order.

There is an easy way to earn this trophy. First, go to the area where the train tracks are located (see map below) and start a pursuit. Use the ramp underneath the tracks to jump onto them, police can’t follow you up here so you can’t get busted, but ensure you stay in the pursuit radius so you don’t go into cooldown mode. There is a ledge at one end of the train tracks where you can stay without getting busted, whilst your heat level slowly rises. Once you have acquired the heat level you want, simply turn around and drive out of the pursuit radius, then stop and let your heat level decrease until you've evaded the pursuit completely. Repeat the process on the different heat levels until you've earned the trophy.

You will need to escape one time from each of the heat levels, so you will need to do a minimum of 6 pursuit.
I can 100% confirm this.

Im having a problem with this, I know I have escaped them all hasnot unlocked for me... Say for example I got to level 6 I started to eveade but a cop saw me at level 4 coolsown will that void the level 6 escape? Im having a hard time finding hiding spots there dont really seem to be any : not like the old cooldown hiding spots in the other games.

You will need to escape from all levels without be seen once you entered the cooldown. If you get to cooldown in level 6, but then get seen in level 4 and get in to a cooldown again (in level 4), and then successfully escape them. That will count as a level 4 escape

You can't be seen during cooldown? Damn, that sucks.

I concur. Ive had a hell of a problem w this because on a level 5,6 cooldown, they catch me at a level 2, and it counts as a level 2. You do have to avoid them SOLID, from each level 6-1, to get this trophy. Pain in the balls, and probably the most difficult (only barring the first place in all races.) Very easy platty i do say.

I'm having real trouble with this one. I have escaped successfully 2 or 3 times from a full level 6 all the way to pursuit evaded and it still hasn't popped! Grrr! Anyone know if I have to escape from each level separately? e.g. Escape from a 5 to pursuit evaded and then redo and escape from a 4 to pursuit evaded. Hmm

That's exactly what you need to do, it won't give you the trophy if you just escape from level 6. You have to earn and then escape from each individual heat level.

I used the exploit shown in the video and it worked perfectly.

Only thing though, a couple of times the cops would randomly jump up on to the train tracks beside me, i'd ram them a few times then race off and they'd vanish. Wierd, almost got busted because of it lol.

levels 2 to 6 can all be gotten trough the police escape races, depending on the car u'll start at a certain level, for most fast cars it will be at least 3. I hadn't even noticed i had it till i started checking which trophs i was missing. Just like most other singleplayer trophs, this can be achieved by playing alot of the races. A little luck comes in aswell, crashing is often a very good way to get away from patrolcars close by.

I can't get this to work. I took me a few tries to get on the tracks without the police following me, and when I did they drove up on the road next to the tracks and found me. Any tips?

Just to confirm, this still works.

Just to clarify, since those complaining it doesn't work were recent - you have to drive further up the track to escape, past the jump that gets you up there.

What an annoying trophy I don't understand why they didn't just make it once you get the highest wanted level and you lose them that it pops but the video does help and if your not keen on waiting around an eternity to level up start smashing cop cars goes up faster once you got your level jump back up piece of cake just watch the cops coming head on at you when your making your way back up.

little tip for the ones that doesn't know.. with L3 you can turn of the engine , and you're cooldown will vapor as snow for the sun^^

(you have to stand still to turn off you're engine!)

The cops CAN get up here and it's not 100% full-proof as the cops can follow you up and get in from the other end as its drops to road level.

I just did Heat 5 all the way to 1, that didn't work. But then I did Heat lvl 6 just after that and I got it!
So I think the execution is not that important, just get all the levels and you'll be fine.

Watch this:

Just follow the instructions and don't forget heat 6.

Can confirm that cops can come up from the jump ramp and from the other side of the railroad track.

The train track method still works and I have the latest patch (just installed it a few days ago). I think the trick is not to get your wanted level too high before you make the jump otherwise the cops will follow. At lvl 4 one of them followed me but I took him out then I drove to the ledge/spot where you have to wait for the meter to go up. When I did the jump at lvl 1 they couldn't care less where I was going... but this way you have to wait about 10 min for the meter to reach lvl 6.
BTW I only had to do it for lvl 5-6, others came from just playing the game.

Okay i didnt had any probs with PS3 version, but whatever i do, Vita version doesnt wanna unlock this.

From 6 to 0... nothing.
From 5 to 0... nothing.
From 4 to 3 and so on,. nothing.

Separately with and without cops interrupting the cooldown... nothing.

I have also done these steps legit way,. + waited on rail tracks.

Btw,. gates and billboards keeps "respawing" and i'm so high up on SP as well that i wont get the "move up rank" trophy.
I keep getting disconnected from autolog and i think trophy has something to do with it... well i only paid 7,91€ ,. not 49,95
