4. master steep turns using NOS

Sometimes you’ll be acing a race but then encounter a steep turn and lose your position. There’s nothing more painful than getting busted after hitting a corner. But there’s a simple hack for it. Either you can simply slow down at the turn and then use NOS to speed up. But this is kinda boring, rather you can make drift through the corners. If the drift throws you out of control, use NOS to set your car back on the track.

5. SAy goodbye to distractions

NFS unbound has excellent visuals and you may find the newly added effects like wings for airtime, an animated smoke effect for drifts, etc very cool. But sometimes these effects might just get in the way of your gameplay, by acting more as distractions rather than art. So you should consider removing the effects. Although you can remove them completely, they can still be minimized by using the “Cloaked” effect, under driving effects.

6. big bounty

Engage in pursuits and then escape from the cops. Chases and bounty missions have always been part of the NFS game series. As much fun as it is, it is also very rewarding. You will get $250 for every cop car that you lose. This way you can stack up a lot of quick money.

7. Travel light

There are numerous ways for you to earn money in the game. Grinding through races and losing the cops for hours can help you stack a lot of money. The open world has a bunch of events to offer from which you can earn fortunes. Better go to the garage or a safe house so that all your earnings from the session are stored. Otherwise, if you get caught by the cops, you’ll lose all of your earnings. But be careful, going to the garage will also reset the events available and a new day starts.

8. night events

9. Teleport

If you head out of the garage and get a mission call right away, you can go back to the garage and jump out from another garage that is closer to the mission location. Don’t worry it won’t skip the day as long as you haven’t earned any money.

10. Earn more on delivery missions

Cop chases are the best part of NFS, it is what sets NFS apart from other simple racing games. And getting the cops off your tail is sometimes very difficult, although this part being so challenging is what makes it so fun. But you might sometimes just want to see the back of the cops as soon as possible. And you can do this by getting up to the high ground. You can climb up on the containers or use those large ramps to evade the cops.

12. Evade faster

After you have lost the cops that were on your tail, get to a safe location where you won’t be spotted back and turn off the engine. This way you’ll have a shorter cooldown period and you can evade faster.

13. Drafting to fill nos

Drafting is when you tag right behind a rival’s car during a race. Drafting fills up your NOS bar really fast so you can keep on the tail of racers and fill your NOS bar. Then use the NOS to overtake the racers. Using this simple trick will give you better chances of winning races with lesser effort.

14. Teleport to the city

If you are outside a safehouse or garage or you can still leave the game and it will not affect the heat. When you return to the game, you’ll start in the city.

15. How to get a Perfect launch

A lot gets decided at the beginning of a race, so you should stay on your toes and get the upper hand at the beginning itself. Revving the engine to the fullest will not help in getting a better start. Every car has a different threshold, you just need to rev up until that point so the bar turns green. This will give you the perfect launch.

Just remember these NFS unbound tips and tricks and you can save yourself a lot of effort and focus more on enjoying the game than figuring out how things work.
