Speedbreaker allows the player to enter a temporary state of slow motion. Players are able to directly turn their vehicle at excessive angles and speeds whilst under the effect of Speedbreaker.
Speedbreaker can be used during a race to allow players to maneuver their vehicle through tight corners without having to slow down from high speeds.
This ability can also be used to dodge police vehicles such as Rhino SUV Units as well as allowing players to aim their vehicle through prime locations on a Roadblock. While under the effects of Speedbreaker, the player's vehicle gains a great amount of mass, allowing them to ram through various roadblocks and obstacles with ease.
- In Need for Speed: Carbon, speedbreaker does not work in Challenge Series if the 'Infinite Speedbreaker' cheat has been activated.
