It costs an awful lot to grab cars and upgrades as a street racer, doesn’t it? But there’s actually a very easy exploit that allows you to make money fast in Need for Speed Unbound. It takes a bit to get set up, but once you do the prerequisites, you can find yourself swimming in cash in no time, depending on if you have the patience to go through the motions again and again. So strap in, run from the cops, and get ready to make some crazy money (yah yah yah yah yah.)
This exploit can be used to make money fast in Need for Speed Unbound in the day or night, but it’ll be much easier to pull off at night. As you’ve likely noticed, escaping from a chase with the cops gets you some money depending on your heat level. Once you get up to heat level 5, escaping will net you $2,000, but this is often risky due to a large number of cars, helicopters, and spike strips you’ll find obstructing you. You gain heat from doing events (some grant more than others), so you want to do this once you get your heat maxed out.
Make money fast in Need for Speed Unbound
Due to the way Need for Speed Unbound works, you’re probably not going to be able to accrue enough heat from daytime alone, so you’ll want to get as much as you can during the day before heading out at night to max the heat gauge. Once it’s full (which can take a few events) all you need to do is set a course for this spot, which I’ll show you with a zoomed-out map, a zoomed-in map, the in-game camera, and a more distant snapshot. On your way to this spot, let a cop spot you to kick off a chase.
Now that they’re on your tail, drive to this spot and wait. The cops can’t get you here, so you’ll lose them and get your $2,000. Now it’s just a matter of doing it again. Leave the spot and find a nearby cop to start another chase and then get back to the spot. At heat level five, there will be cops all over the place, so it’s easy to rinse and repeat, which will net you a bunch of extra cash. That’s all you need to do to make money fast in Need for Speed Unbound.
