Need for Speed: Most Wanted

Cost to State Challenge is an event that requires the player to reach a target cost to state (CTS) before evading. The player can access a Cost to State Challenge in the Challenge Series or in Free Roam as a Milestone event. Each roadside object and police car has a certain value when hit that will help increase the Cost to State.

Need for Speed: Undercover

Cost to State is a game mode in Career mode. The player must reach a CTS before evading. Unlike Most Wanted, the player must evade as soon as possible after reaching the target CTS because there is a time limit. However, there is a Job mission (Hornets Nest) that the player must cause a 25,000 CTS and evade without a time limit.
