|Introduction [INTR]|
+-------------------+

This is just a short guide to all the multiplayer objectives in each playlist
and the rewards for completing 5,10,15 and all of the relevant playlist.  I
will also add in the group objectives however since the game doesn't have a
list that you can freely view and they appear to be picked at random I can't be
sure I have them all or if they change dependent on the number of players in
your group.

Now, all objectives are not available for you to complete at the start, infact
only 3 of the 20 total you can actually try and complete.  Once you have
completed that objective the game moves it to the bottom of the list and the
next one down replaces it and this continues until you complete them all.

+-----------------------+
|Group Objectives [GOBJ]|
+-----------------------+

The reason these don't show values is because I suspect (from what little I've
seen anyway) that the value changes dependent on the number of players in the
playgroup, with more players meaning higher values (so more near misses needed
for more players for example).  In the descriptions all values which I suspect
change I will replace with an X.

Pirates
Accumulate X dirty passes

Speed Kings
Spend X seconds at top speed

Ninjas
Accumulate X clean passes

Drifters
Accumulate Xft total distance


Air Show
Accumulate X seconds of air time from jumps

Recon
Total time any group member leads the race

Winner's Circle
Accumulate X race wins within the group

Represent
A player from the group finishes in the top 3, X races in a row

Laugh In
Accumulate X seconds of time using nitrous

Elite Crew
Finish a race with 4 players from the group in the top 3
(NOTE: I don't exactly understand this one but I did copy it word for word, so
if anyone can shed light on this then it will be appreciated).

|Hints and Tips [HNTP]|
+---------------------+

Hopefully some tips to help you to complete some of these challenges, although
I won't go over the obvious ones like, come 1st in a session, as if you can't
get it, you just need to get better although a tip for some would be, brakes
exist USE THEM.

-Accumulating Draft/Slipstream Passing
Normally at the beginning of the race when everyone is lumped together would be
a good place to accumulate this.  With everyone bunched together it should be
easy to obtain.  Another alternative that isn't too difficult is a straight
road, as long as the one in front isn't weaving around the road it should be
fairly easy to get the slipstream boost.

-Keeping top speed
Well, first you need a nice long straight road, highways are your best bet,
then it's getting up to speed.  If possible use slipstream boosts and alot of
nitrous to get you up to speed and keep you there and if you can, stay in
oncoming to keep the nitrous flowing.

-Clean sections
For these you should hope to start at the back of the pack and stay there to
concentrate on getting those clean sections otherwise you will have alot of
trouble with other racers around.  For the ones where you have to place in a
certain position, just hope you only have a room where the number of players
equals the position you need.  Alternatively, if you start at the front, stay
at the front, far in front.  These objectives will probably be very hard and
most likely involve a bit of luck to complete (although complete highway stages
will be a life saver).

-Not letting anyone pass
Two easy ways I can see.  Either start in front and stay in front or start at
the back and stay at the back.  If you start in the middle of the pack, with
the mess it sticks you in, chances are you will be swapping places left and
right.

-Get first within 30 seconds before the end?
Luck.  That's all I have to say.  If you get lucky enough to find someone else
with a similar skill level you could have a good battle for first place and get
it then.  However, if you can storm ahead, you might have to slow down your
racing to give you that chance.

+-----------------------+
|How you can help [HYCH]|
+-----------------------+

If you see any mistakes contact me and I will fix it giving you credit where it
is due.  Any information on group objectives will help, specifically if there
are any I don't have and if the requirements increase if the number in your
group increases as well (which I suspect is the case).

Either PM me through GameFAQs or you can send me an email at
mrogers41@hotmail.com.  Just put Need for Speed The Run or similar as the
email's subject so I don't ignore it.  I would also prefer it to be in proper
English and easily readable however I do know that English is not everyone's
first language so I will allow some tollerance.

I also regularly visit another racing board where we do discuss the games and
hold some competitions (nothing fancy though) so if you do want some
competition you should check it out at
