Drift Attack is a game mode featured in Need for Speed: Most Wanted (2012). It was introduced in the second multiplayer update for the PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 releases. A single instance of a Drift Attack event is made available for most vehicles upon purchase of the Terminal Velocity Pack.

The player has to beat a set Speed Points (NFSMW2012SpeedPointsIcon) score within a Point-to-point course. They can accumulate a score by drifting at any point along the course. The player can multiply their score by drifting through the blue gate checkpoints highlighted as Drift Zones.
