Need for Speed: Most Wanted (PS3)

Need for Speed: Most Wanted (PS3) Trophies
Second is Nothing
Finish first in every race, in every car (Single Player)

Despite what the trophy description suggests, you only have to win each unique event once to obtain this trophy, not every event in every car. There are a total of 61 different events in the game and 10 of these are the events on the most wanted list. You can tell if you've already done an event by going to the 'races' list in the Easydrive menu. Select an event, and if you don't have the option to start the event from the menu with the only option being 'set destination', this means you haven't done the event. (Thanks to bs000 for the clarification regarding this trophy).

There is a very useful chart containing events and vehicles created by rachet, you can find it here.

is this a trophy that requiers you to finish first in ALL the races with ALL the cars each? If there are a total of about 150 races, and about 75 cars that makes it 11 250 races to complete. That will take a long long time to complete.

Don't worry mate, there is just 41 cars in single player so you just have to complete 205 races, most of them don't take more than 4minutes.

This one depends on how many races are available and how many cars. I think that SantaCruz is correct that it will take a while, because some cars will be locked...I want to guess at least 1,000 races...

I assume we have to win each race and have at least 1 win with each car, that way it would be possible to get this trophy by winning each race only once.

Going to get my copy next week, can't wait to get my hands on this game. It was supposed to be here today but there were some problems with delivery :(

41 cars with 5 races each, #2 was correct. It's 205 races to win. Some of them are even the same between each car, so you can do them easier second time around with another car.

@8: that's cause the trophy's description appears to be wrong...

You get this trophy as soon as you win every race once. Don't have to win it in every single car apparently.

Let me clear things up on this trophy. You Do Not Have To Beat Every Race With Every Car! Beat the race for each car that has Not yet been raced. Only 61 events need beat. How ever you most likely will need mods to beat the hard races so some races you will do again in each car to unlock its mods. If you change cars and see races with your personal best time it means it has been raced already an DOES NOT have to be beat again. If a race for ANY car says "Set Time" it needs to be beat.

No you can not beat all the events in one car. You have to change cars to get the race for that car. When going for this trophy its best to get only the mods you need for each car, and move on to the race for that car you have not yet beat. In other words if the race track is 'all street' only get light chassis, track tiers, short, or long gears (depending on the track) an nitro. Make them all pro (very easy to do) and you will win the hard races with little to no effort. If it's a dirt track obviously get dirt tiers not track. If you are going to be smashing other racers use reinforced chassis (impact protection optional as its not needed.) To unlock your mods with ease go the the PARK where you can complete each task required for pro mods. Wile you cant get all of them hear you can do mo

At the PARK you can do most of your PRO mods. Air time for light chassis (with the jumps.) Drifting for track tires (lots of circles.) Nitro burn, or shot (refills wile getting air time) And Off road tiers (in the base ball field drift for 5,000 yrds)

If there is any confusion and you just need to ask a question feel free to send me a message and I will try to help out as much as I can. Good luck to all on the platinum hunting.

do you HAVE to come first in the races or can you finish 2nd or 3rd too?

RdotN: You have to come in first in the events.

HyperFlexx: Are you basically saying we must only win 1 race (the one specific for that car) for each car? I do notice that it seems each car has a race specific to them.

 Comment #17 by andylangers
Tuesday, November 13, 2012 @ 01:50:04 PM

It seems that you have to finish first in each race and there are 61 of them, I've checked every single car though and the game only says that I have completed 60 of 61 so I'm stumped

I've got the platinum a few minutes ago.
This trophy doesn't require to be first in every race WITH every car. You just have to be first in all the event (only 61 events are in the game, not 41 times 5).

Check in every car if there is a race available which has only the "set destination" option. Once you've found this race without "start race" option, you will know that it's the race that you need.
The last car I was racing with was the Range Rover. It has 2 or 3 events that was new for me.

I'm having the same issue as andylangers. My Drivers info says I have 60 events played and 60 events one. When I try to check the cars races, they all have destination set and start race options. I'm gonna write a list of all my golds to see which event I haven't won, bout the only thing I can at this point unless someone else finds the answer.

I was having the same problem, only 60 out of 61 events played and completed.

Had been truth the whole car park like 3-4 times, and everything seemd rigtht, no raced only had the "Set Destanation" option and every race had a personal time.

So i printed this one out:

Went truht every car, and put a mark on the paper if i had gold in it. At the end I could see that I havent got gold in the Downgraded Speed Run event, so went to the 911 turbo (wich actaly showed that the event had a personal best time), did the race, and I got my trophy.

Hope this will help you out :)

Same problem here. Only 59 of 61. Events played and won. Check every race and everyone has start race and personal time. Dont know what to do.

Print out the guide and check off what you have and check as you go. I did that and got all 61/61 events cleared. All i can say is that Needle Point is the HARDEST SPEED RUN!!!

 Comment #24 by KissOfAnAngel
Tuesday, May 28, 2013 @ 01:54:52 AM

Yeah, needle point is really hard!! Using the guide i find where the mistake was. It was chain raction where i didn't had gold yet. Nevertheless i think the game is bugged there. As soon as you completed a race and set a personal record it should count in your participated events. For some reason it didn't in that one.
Now i only need to win Needle Point to have hem all :-)

i just completed this today, apparently i did'nt use the correct car (Porsche spyder...) to complete the required race (i had used another car? and it did'nt count) Use the event list spreadsheet (a quick google should sort that) to help you with your played car list.

Ps NEEDLE POINT is really hard i used the PAGINI...

What a stupid description, I went for ALL the races. Did it in alphabetical order and when I reached Ford, I realised it would take a while so I looked it up to be sure -_-
Thanks for the guide ;)

NEEDLE POINT is really hard. I have the same opinion. I had tried thih 80 times, finaly finished with averege speed 262km/h. I used Bugatti Veyron with nitro pro and areo. At start gives me average speed 345km/h, byt u can't skip entrens.

I only have the two hard races on Konessingg (something like that) two complete to get that platinum trophy. It is very annoying because i keep on coming 1 oo1 from coming first. So to me this is the easiest game but annoying! -_-

Seems the Needle Point bugatti veyron race is preventing many from acquiring this gold trophy.
I keep hitting 154.9mph! race sux.
s single crash in this race can change the outcome. This race has very little to do with the drivers skill, and a lot to do with random luck, as 5-0 spawn around corners that we least expect, in order to prevent the masses from a win for this one. Thanks race creator..
