NFSPB Jaguar Activity.jpg

Activities in Need for Speed: Payback are a total of 145 asynchronous competitive events found across Fortune Valley.

Each individual activity location has a 3-star rating attached to it, which has three targets the player can surpass to earn stars. All three targets for an activity location are shown as a star rating, with each subsequently higher rating increasing in difficulty towards its completion.

Beating a star rating will reward the player with rep and bank. The amount of reputation and bank awarded to the player depends on the star rating they have beaten, and beating a personal best will always reward the same amount.

Owning the High Roller Pack will add an extra 5% bank and reputation reward to all target rewards.

Stars are awarded to the player by beating rating targets of the multiple activity locations, with each offering up to three stars by beating its 3-star target.

Beating a 1-star target will award a single star, beating the 2-star rating will award 2 stars and beating the 3-star rating will award 3 stars. Players will not be awarded additional stars from beating a personal best set above a 3-star or by continually beating targets they've already completed.
