Gauntlet is a game mode featured in Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit (2010) that involves a point to point survival-sprint along a set route. These events are limited to a single racer, but the number of pursuing SCPD units differs depending on the event.

Equipment given to racers varies between events, but they can earn nitrous by performing dangerous driving maneuvers and interaction with pursuing SCPD units.

Finishing a gauntlet event will reward the player with a gold medal for completing below that time target, a silver medal for completing below that time target but beyond the gold medal target, and a bronze medal for completing the route below the final time target. Finishing a gauntlet below the final target time will not count as a completed event in the racer career.
