This guide will go over a few helpful tips and tricks to get the most out of Need for Speed: No Limits without spending your hard-earned real money. The hit mobile game is undoubtedly the ultimate street racing experience in terms of mobile games. Has some of the best graphics Android or iOS game, millions of players and more customization than most. However, it’s hard to play and full of in-app purchases.
Need for Speed: No Limits was touted as one of the best Android and iOS games of 2015, and the graphics and gameplay definitely prove it deserves this title. But the problem is, there are five different in-game currencies, tons of timers that get in the way of enjoying the fast-paced pavement, and enough in-app purchases that almost anyone will spend a few bucks to actually enjoy it. .
There are countless hacks all over Facebook and YouTube, but most of them will get you banned and the racers will lose everything. Instead, follow a few of our quick steps, tips, and suggestions to get at least three cars, start collecting more, or save on tickets and crates along the way. Use all of them to get as many blueprints as possible to unlock more cars and enjoy Need for Speed.
There’s more to Need for Speed: No Limits than just making money and reputation. And while that’s important, it’s just as important to learn your speed, master corners, draft other cars, and use your braces on corners. Leveling up is something to consider, which we’ll explain below. You’ll have to master all of these if you want to unlock more parts to win races, save money and build the fastest car on the road.
This game is full of in-app purchases. It’s free to play, but eventually the timer will run out and racers will spend more time waiting than playing. Unless you spend gold or one of the other in-game currencies to play. It’s the worst thing you can do. Sometimes players need to turn off their phone or tablet, let the timer reset, and then go back to racing. Don’t waste gold or cash on the timer or fuel if you can help.
At first the most important thing is to get the two free cars given, start winning races, save money, crates and tickets and work towards a 3rd or even a 4th car. This is because initially quantity is better than quality. You will then want to make the fastest car on the street, but the more cars available at the start, the more races open. This allows for more practice, retrying and winning the important stuff. You want cars at first, but don’t upgrade them all. They will unlock more races and in the end you will have plenty to do and enough gold, blueprints or cash to buy a real street car.
Racers will quickly do the opposite of the title and face the limits. Most. You won’t have time, no cash or gold, or enough cars and new tracks to race to win what you need. That’s what the developers want and you will spend real money.
Instead, get as many average cars as possible and learn to race the best. Compete in as many special events as possible, as the winners are usually rewarded with a car (without spending a lot of money). However, more races are opening up, which gives us more to do and more ways to earn cash and reputation. It’s all about having as many options as possible at first, not rushing purchases and making the fastest car.
Learn to Compete
Of course it’s a racing game, so you’ll want to learn how to race. This is not a simulator, it’s an arcade style racing game. That means the crazier you are, the better. Nearly crash into other cars, take big air, use the boost from the corners and drift or drive like a madman who just stole a car. This way you will earn more.
Everyone will play differently, but if you don’t want to spend real money, you’ll want to learn the basics right away. Get really good at drifting around corners, tugging other cars to go faster (reduced airflow) and use boost immediately after a drift (sliding up). You may also want to save the boost for straight lines, but not too much. So drift around corners, go crazy, be “near-miss” often, barely missing other cars, and get some air. All of these will increase your reputation, increase your counter, earn money and other things. In the beginning it’s all about learning how to race and racing recklessly while still winning. Many don’t know that you can drift in No Limit, but master it to earn more money per race. Swipe down near corners to drift and slide at top speeds.
Use these buffs to equalize the rear end and gain control after cornering and gain as much speed as possible. Master it and then start playing the levels again. Repeat early levels as often as possible. In the end, all that repetition and learning will earn you more reputation and, more importantly, extra money. Save this for another car or plans as mentioned above as it will unlock more options and race tracks. Don’t get stuck with two fast cars or you’ll spend real money too often.
Need for Speed is free, but you’ll be limited to timers, fuel, and other fast stuff. You will need to know how to handle them all wisely to get the most out of them. There are actually five different in-game currencies, all of which you’ll want to save as much as possible and spend minimally at first.
Cash and Gold can be earned by leveling up, winning races and driving like a madman for revenge. Using Cash only for parts means I have a few hundred thousand left when I need it, rather than spending it carelessly and needing gold later. If you spend money on crates, first look at what it has to offer and make sure it will benefit you and your cars. Clicking on any car or vault in the dock will reveal everything it has to offer, so be strategic and take your time.
Use gold to expand your spare parts storage garage or flip cards to find blueprints and special parts for your journey. Never spend on timers. Play a different game or race when you know you’re going to level up, which instantly gives you a full tank of fuel and resets the timers.
Be very careful with leveling up unless you want to spend real money to play or wait for timers. The fuel timer fills up every time you level up. So don’t do this near the end of a gaming session as it will be wasted.
Strategically seek reps, replay old races, and save those big new races when you’re almost out of time and almost ready to level up. Then race, go crazy, level up and get a bar of fuel. Always pay attention to the small leveling circle as this will save you from spending more money than you know.
There are a few other things that I realized after playing for a while that everyone should know. First, compete in tournaments when you’re stuck or out of time. It uses tickets instead of a fuel timer and charges at a different rate. Play a tournament or two, then come back and reset your timer or even level up and refill the fuel bar.
Spend tickets on tournaments often, even if you can’t win. Tournaments give prizes even if you lose. Like cars that unlock more series or tracks, it gives racers more to do than get stuck and spend real money.
Finally, use the “Easy Drive” switch at the top. This essentially lets Need for Speed play itself. When you’re at home on the couch or need a real break, let it play for you and earn some cash. You will probably lose a few races, but you can win some as well. For those who are stuck and don’t know what to do next, run tournaments or just focus on the plans. Earning blueprints will unlock more items, more parts, and even more cars. You’ll want to open the game at least once a day and collect or open free crates as often as possible.
The game is mainly based on users who spend money and enter the limits. It’s the opposite of the title, but if you play smart, drive fast, and use the Black Market efficiently, you’ll eventually reach the top. It’s a grind and can be frustrating at times, but the excitement of winning, customizing your rides, and great graphics make it all worth it. At least according to some.
