Challenge Series Icon

The Challenge Series in Need for Speed: Most Wanted contains Tollbooth Time Trials alongside various different pursuit milestone events such as Pursuit Length, Pursuit Evasion, Infractions, Cost to State, Bounty, Trade Paint, Roadblock, and Spike Strip.

The series is separated from quick race mode with new events unlocked sequentially, and the player is given a vehicle suited to each challenge to fit a particular experience or task.

New challenges are unlocked as the player completes previously unlocked challenges. Players also will be able to drive certain vehicles that aren't allowed in other game modes such as traffic and police vehicles.
