Barnstormer is a Gauntlet event featured in Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit (2010) and Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit Remastered, and it is a racer career event.

In Hot Pursuit (2010), the event is only available with the Porsche Unleashed Pack. In Hot Pursuit Remastered, the event is unlocked by beating Coast to Coast. It can be accessed from the Eagle Crest racer node on the career map, and is a Super Series event.


The route starts heading southeast on East Gorge Freeway. The racer continues down the entirety of this motorway, before turning right at the following junction and proceeding on Boulder Desert. They race through the Boulder National Park and continue towards the end of the road, where the finish line is located.


"Roof down driving is a refreshing experience – even more so if it is raining! It looks like the rain might be clearing up but the rain is nothing compared to the spray a SCPD helicopter can produce. Keep an eye on the sky as the Cops turn up the heat in this rain-soaked Gauntlet."


The player is given two EMPs, two Jammers, and two Spike Strips.



The player's choice of racer vehicle for this event is limited to the Super Series Porsche 911 Speedster.

SCPD Units

An SCPD Lamborghini Gallardo LP 560-4 Rapid Deployment unit will be engaged in pursuit shortly after the trial begins. Another unit will enter pursuit further down the motorway. These units will use EMPs, Roadblocks, Spike Strips, and Helicopter support.
