Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit 2 Cheats, Codes & Guides

Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit 2 Cheats

  • Fast Traffic



    You can make the traffic vehicles in NFSHP2 go faster than default. First, go to the EA Games\Need for Speed Htt Pursuit 2\AI\AIRacers.ini file. There should be a page of ai player stats (personality, car, etc.). Scroll down the page to [entity13]. Under name, this should say TRF0 <(0=zero). Find the line that says speed, and change that number (mine was 35) to up to 99. From my observations, traffic can only go up to 99mph, but you can experiment if you'd like to.

  • Launch Restart



    As you might know, when you restart in a race, you start off at a given speed.(Depending on the difficulty). If you go to the racetune.ini file, these speeds can be changed. Under that file, under the Racer.ResetSpeedMPH line under beginner, medium, and hard, you can change the reset speeds from 35; 22; and 0, to whatever sbeed you'd prefer.

  • Get All the Cars and Tracks

    Here is a simple code if u want all the cars and tracks. First go to my computer and click on drive D or C (were ever u installed your game.) Then scroll down till u see a folder called TRACKS. Click on it and then click on another file that say tracks and u will see that every track is copied in a neat order. And u will see the word (example:) m_prices(2)=30,000 just change that 30,000 into zero and when u are done exit out and it will say do u want to save click yes. then exit out of the file and the folder and look for a file called Cars and do the same thing click on it and click on another file called cars. And it will neatly show each car in order. For example scroll down to your favorite car (Mercedes Benz clk_gtr) and change your favorites car price and nfs price to zero.
    Note: when u change nfs price to zero the nfs edition car will cost only 2,000. Then u can change all of them. Get out of the folder and save when it asks u and exit everything out. Click on your game and single race and if u want to change track it will be on 0 just unlock it without paying and something with the cars except nfs edition

  • Free money

    To gain extra money you must first have not bought too many tracks. End the game if it is not already closed. Go to the location of your file. Usually it is stored under C:\program files\EAGames\Hot Pursuit 2. Next go into the file called tracks. In this folder you should find a text file called tracks, open it. If you scroll down you will notice that all of the tracks are grouped in an organized order. you should notice three or four numbers with some of them being different and some of them the same. All of these numbers should be in the thousands. Change all of these numbers to a negative number such as -60000. You may wish to change all the numbers for each track to a negative number. Exit the program clicking YES to save. Start the game and buy a couple of tracks, when you buy them the computer will end up paying you money. You will know if you have done the program correctly if the computer says the track costs -60000. Also you can switch the track to backward!

  • Secret Passage in "Fall Winds"

    At the Fall Winds track, when you start, keep going straight until you find the first shortcut. It may be a long drive, but you will eventually get there. Go in there. Drive all the way through. When you come out, keep driving until you see a tunnel. Once you see the tunnel, immediately steer to the left of the track into the dirt. Keep going and it will lead you to the south rock mine. Once you come out, you have gone through the secret passage.

  • Lotus Elise Delivery Tactics

    At the main menu, select Hot Pursuit and then choose event 1, Lotus Elise Delivery. After coming out of the first tunnel drive up the big hill and you will see the first cop on the side of the road. Drive the car as if you are going to take the shortcut to the right of the cop car, but steer left at the last moment and stay on the paved road. The cop will take the short cut and lose sight of you for a while. After driving across the iron-work bridge and through the underpass, another cop will be waiting on the left. Follow the fence line on the right very closely and take the shortcut down the hill. This will not only shave seconds off of your lap time, but help you to lose the cops.

  • Beat the Cops

    When You have a cop on your tail the best way to get rid of him is to wreck him. First try to slam him into another car or something on the road that is sticking out. If that doesn't work slam on your brakes and stay behind him for a second then gather speed and when you get close hit his back side panel to spin him out then speed of and take the closest short cut.

  • Secret To Winning The Lambourghini Time Trial

    You guys should go through the map at least once to find some of the shortcuts. ONLY a few will help you go faster to get that 1:35:00 time limit. Another tip would be to reverse a long way at the beginning and then go (time wont start until you cross the line) and you can get up to about 50 mph faster if you do this for your first lap. Take only the shortcuts that are farther to the inside of turns and that cut across turns. Do not take any shortcuts in the last 7/8 of the track (the ones that are higher up than the other parts). My best time was 1:36:83 and I can't get any better than this but hopefully some of you will for that 100000 points.
