FOLLOWING the prologue for Need for Speed Unbound, you’ll have access to a number of events in Lakeshore City’s open world.
These all reward you with money, which is key for opening up qualifying sessions and making your way through the story.
You’ll not only need to make money in order to afford faster cars and customisation options, but to enter the big races.
If you need a quick buck, here’s the easiest methods for making money in Need for Speed Unbound.
Need for Speed Unbound: Complete events before you head to the garage
Each day and night in Need for Speed Unbound has different events that change as the sun rises and sets.
Night time challenges reward you with more money, but have the added risk of extra-aggressive police officers.
When you’re on the streets, make sure you complete all the events before heading to the garage, which will refresh them to a completely new set.
If you miss these races, you can’t go back, so you might be hurting for money later in the game.
Need for Speed Unbound: Aim high
While it may seem simple, the better you do in these events, the more money you earn.
Depending on the difficulty of each race, you’ll be given the chance to try them again, which can help with making up for lost cash.
Even if it’s clear you’re not going to finish first, just climbing one rank higher will earn you some nice rewards.
Need for Speed Unbound: Place your bets
Before every race you have the chance to earn more money by betting on an opponent you think you can beat in the race.
The better the opponent, the more you will earn, but of course, if you lose against them, you lose your wager.
You’ll quickly learn who you think you can take on to reap better rewards, so balance your bets between someone fast, who is also someone that you’re guaranteed to overtake.
Need for Speed Unbound: The sound of the police
One of the best money-farming methods is to let the police chase you as many times as you can before entering an event or returning to the garage.
They aren’t too challenging, and you’ll bag yourself $250 for outrunning them.
As these are easy to find and quick to complete, it’s one of the best methods for making money to progress through the story.
