Duel is a game mode featured in Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit (2010) that involves a one versus one sprint along a set point to point route. These events are limited to a maximum of two racers, and the first racer to cross the finish line is the winner.

Racers are not given any equipment for usage during duel events, but they can earn nitrous by performing dangerous driving maneuvers and interaction with other racers.

Finishing a duel event will reward the player with a gold medal for a first place finish or a silver medal for second. Finishing the event in either position will count as a completion in the racer career.
