prev page Black List #9 - Earl (10/26) next page

Just as before, you should start off by visiting one of the nearby car dealers. You’ll probably be a little surprised, because there are three different cars waiting for you there. Nevertheless, I wouldn’t recommend buying any of them, especially since you own a Cayman S.

Vauxhall Monaro VXR (#1) seems like a very fast car, but with poor handling... and this time the information is correct. Taking control of this beast is certainly not an easy task. You could spend some money to improve Monaro’s handling abilities, although you wouldn’t achieve too much that way. Why bother when you can stay with your Lancer or even much “older” Supra. Furthermore, you wouldn’t have to spend too much money on those two cars in order to improve their performance bars.

Pontiac GTO (#2) looks just like the Vauxhall, it also handles identically. Like I’ve said before, you shouldn’t be interested in any of these cars. I’d be best to spend the rest of the money on something else.

Porsche Cayman S (#3) is by far one of the fastest cars you’ve manage to unlock. Furthermore, this vehicle handles quite well. If you drove a Lancer before you might find its handling a little bit “risky”, although you shouldn’t worry about that too much. The main problem with the Cayman is its price. The car costs 60000 dollars (Vauxhall and Pontiac are a lot cheaper). Thankfully, you should have Baron’s car, so you wouldn’t have to buy one of these.

Before you move on to the next challenges be sure to spend some of your money on performance upgrades for your current cars. You should own a Cayman S and the Mitsubishi Lancer. You can sell the Supra at this point. The same thing goes with the rest of the cars.

Earl will require you to do following things - Black List #9 - Earl - Career - Need for Speed: Most Wanted - Game Guide and Walkthrough

Earl will require you to do following things:

1) Races won: 5

2) Milestones completed: 4

3) Total number of points: 790000+.

Races:

1. Tollbooth – Skyview & Waterfront

This race is not too hard, although you should know that police forces might join in to start the pursuit. You shouldn’t have any problems with the first few corners. Use the brakes once you reach a tight left run (#1). You will also have to maintain a decent speed. You will be moving on a freeway for the most of this challenge. Remember to use your nitro regularly (#2). Watch out for the additional police cars. You can’t get in any type of contact with them.

2 - Black List #9 - Earl - Career - Need for Speed: Most Wanted - Game Guide and Walkthrough

2. Speedtrap – Seagate & Horn

You should be able to maintain a highest speed near the first checkpoint (#1), mostly because you will have a lot of time to accelerate properly. The following checkpoints are also situated in obvious points. The only exception is the camera located at the top of the small hill (#2). You have to look at your map often in order to notice its presence.

3 - Black List #9 - Earl - Career - Need for Speed: Most Wanted - Game Guide and Walkthrough

3. Tollbooth – Bristol & Route 55

Start off by using some of the nearby shortcuts (#1). They shouldn’t slow your car down too much. You’ve got a series of tough corners ahead of you. Remember to use the brakes near one of the checkpoints (#2) in order to cut through a very difficult corner. You might also consider activating the Speedbreaker for a second or two.

5 - Black List #9 - Earl - Career - Need for Speed: Most Wanted - Game Guide and Walkthrough
You will be able to go through a very unusual shortcut at some point of this challenge (#1) - Black List #9 - Earl - Career - Need for Speed: Most Wanted - Game Guide and Walkthrough

You will be able to go through a very unusual shortcut at some point of this challenge (#1). Destroy the metal gate in order to get to the prison. Don’t forget to keep a straight line, so you won’t hit anything along the way. You will be jumping down to lower platforms. Don’t worry, your car shouldn’t experience any problems. You’ll probably slow down a lot, although you will only profit from this type of action. Use the left shortcut near the finish line (#2).

4. Circuit - Boundary

This a rather easy race, although you will have to be careful at some points. You will encounter a tight corner near the start line (#1). It would be best to cut through it (using the grass). Be sure not to lose too much grip, though. You will be encountering some challenging corners along the way (#2). Thankfully, you should be able to cut through most of them. The final part of this race is very easy. You should be able to maintain a decent lead, that’ll secure your ultimate victory.

5. Lap Knockout – Fisher Road

You have to be very careful. There’s a difficult left corner near the start line. You will be able to use the prison shortcut in a few seconds (#1). Thanks to that, you should extend your lead even more. Be sure to use other shortcuts along the way. The final part of the lap will require you to cut through several challenging corners (#2). Watch out for the traffic, though. You should win the race without any other problems.

Milestones - Black List #9 - Earl - Career - Need for Speed: Most Wanted - Game Guide and Walkthrough

Milestones:

1. Trade Paint (46000 points)

You shouldn’t have any major problems with this challenge. You will have to destroy or immobilize (use the huge constructions in order to do that) at least twelve police vehicles. The fastest way to complete this milestone will require you to brake through several roadblocks (#1).

2 - Black List #9 - Earl - Career - Need for Speed: Most Wanted - Game Guide and Walkthrough

2. Bounty (46000 points)

This time you will have to earn at least 30000 points during a single pursuit. It will require you to take part in a chase that lasts about 5-6 minutes. Thankfully, you should be able to complete some other milestones simultaneously.

3. Pursuit Evasion (46000 points)

It would be best to take care of this challenge after you finish one of the unlocked races. You will have to lose the pursuit within a three minute time limit. If you have a fast car you shouldn’t worry too much about completing this objective.

4. Roadblock Challenge (46000 points)

You’ll probably have some problems with this challenge. Just as before, I’d recommend staying on freeways. If you have the Cayman you shouldn’t have any problems with breaking through the roadblocks (#1), although you have to be ready to go into reverse if the action is not successful. You should also notice that you’ll be able to attack some roadblock several times. You should earn a point every time you break through them. Be sure to aim at the previously unharmed police vehicles.

MAIN EVENT - Black List #9 - Earl - Career - Need for Speed: Most Wanted - Game Guide and Walkthrough

MAIN EVENT:

Taking down Earl is not an easy thing to do. You shouldn’t have any major problems with the Speedtrap challenge, BUT the Sprint is much more challenging. You will have to pick a car with an excellent handling in order to take the last few corners of that race without any major problems. I’d personally recommend Mitsubishi Lancer. More experienced players may pick the Cayman S, although it’ll be tough to beat Earl in that car.

1. Speedtrap – North Bay Cannery

The first challenge is very easy. Furthermore, you won’t have to cross the finish line before Earl in order to win it. You should remember that from the previous Speedtrap races. Concentrate ALL of your efforts on using the nitro button properly and maintaining higher speed near the designated checkpoints (#1). You have to be careful, though. Some of the cameras have been located near corners (#2). It would be best to use your map in order to locate these points.

2. Sprint – Camden & Route 55

The first part of this Sprint is not too difficult. You will have to get through a series of mild corners. I’d recommend using shortcuts along the way (#1). Be sure not to hit anything while doing that. More challenging turns will begin to appear shortly (#2). One of the toughest corners will require you to make a sudden right turn. Use the shortcut located in this spot (you can’t see it on your map). It would be best to use the Speedbreaker feature in order to pass through it safely.

Another tight turn leads to the series of fast corners - Black List #9 - Earl - Career - Need for Speed: Most Wanted - Game Guide and Walkthrough

Another tight turn leads to the series of fast corners. You’ve been here before, so you should remember this area very well (#1). Be careful not to slide too much, especially when moving on grass. You’ll have to slow down again in a couple of seconds. A very challenging left turn awaits you (#2).

11 - Black List #9 - Earl - Career - Need for Speed: Most Wanted - Game Guide and Walkthrough
Like I’ve said before, the final part of this challenge is by far the most challenging one - Black List #9 - Earl - Career - Need for Speed: Most Wanted - Game Guide and Walkthrough

Like I’ve said before, the final part of this challenge is by far the most challenging one. At first, you will have to deal with some mild corners (#1). Be sure to keep a high speed at all times. Don’t let your opponent take the lead. At the end you will have to go through a small urban zone. You will be encountering very fast and very narrow corners along the way. Just as before, concentrate on blocking Earl. He will be doing his best to overtake you. You should leave this area in a few seconds (#2). Thankfully, only one small jump awaits you. It would be a good idea to use the nitro now. That way, you will be able to secure your lead.

Earl was driving a Mitsubishi Lancer - Black List #9 - Earl - Career - Need for Speed: Most Wanted - Game Guide and Walkthrough

Earl was driving a Mitsubishi Lancer. You should already own this car, so you won’t have to fight for his vehicle. Even if you’ll be able to win Earl’s Lancer, I’d recommend selling it to get more cash. You’ll need it...

I fought dirty to win against this guy. :P On turns I use his car as some sort of protection from hitting the wall, during straight ways I do that move cops use...I'm not sure what it's called it's T-something...

Ilovecars:-) 25/10/2013 12:36

Earl's tough in the sprint. In the speedtrap he is damn easy. I had 719 miles & he 526! but the sprint is tough. It took 2 attempts for me to beat him. When he takes lead, don't panic. Stay close like30-40 feet. Don't lose speed more but leave the accelerater in tight curves. There will be a jump near the finish line. If u r close to him like 6-10 feet, slam the N20 and hopefully, u can make a bigger jump than him, u will win the race:-) I beat Earl with a Cayman. Make sure u use ur best car against Earl. And Earl's car is good:-)

Earl is the hardest rival in the game to take down, in the entire career. Main problem is the skills and techniques he use to take those last corners in the sprints..he sucks in the sprint. However, I used a junkman upgraded Mustang GT to take this guy down.

Moose10 20/07/2013 02:30

I used eclipse for him.It's the best that i have now with 2 junkman parts.ha...ha....

rock rice 02/04/2013 09:58

rock rice 02/04/2013 06:50

unlucky guy 08/08/2012 11:29

ppal112a 28/10/2011 12:35

i would advise u 2 practice d races in quick race mode,then fight it out with earl.Do dis 4 all blacklists<10............

mwracerx 30/04/2011 08:24

i'd reccomend that cobalt ss is the best car to start your carrer. but once you are in blacklist 9 you'll get a cool car which is an evo viii all won't believe but one of the bestest cars in nfs most wanted is the porche cayman s . believe me i have completed the game once beating razor quite easily with it . guys grab your cayman s though it is a lil expensive and upgrade it with the maximum upgrades which you are having that time also upgrade cayman s with all backroom upgrades . i tell u guys believe me by doing this you all will have a little difficulty but after this you all will have absolutely nooooooooo trouble in defeating every1 on the blacklist ..... but at the end its your own choice.... but once follow my advice and then you'll see for yourself.... have fun with you game !!!!!!!

Stranger 17/02/2010 12:34

Most "boss" races can be won only be driving flawlessly through all the corners and using shortcuts. Also, try to block your opponent if possible.this post has been modified by its author [2010-02-17 13:34:52]

xxNFSxUNITEDxx 16/02/2010 10:57

Helo! I have a question.. "I am going up against Earl in the 2nd race and I just cant win he accelerates like crazy and wins.. I drive in "Barons" car " I heard that its easy to win if you drive in a Mitsubishi Lancer but I dont have the cash yo buy it.. So what do I do??

Master_999 24/10/2009 18:55

Man Just USE your PUNTO. Upgrade it with all unlocks upto black list 9 and tune it to have MAJOR Oversteer and SLIGHT LOWER RIDEHEIGHT (Say upto 3). Donot forget to tune the brakes to be REAR Biased and tuned upto scale 3. Just drift through the sharp corners and EARL will be done. Try to get his EVO cause it is unique and even without upgrading it you can easily complete your police pursuits upto black list 3 RONNIE.

Azurity 23/10/2009 16:30

Oh and also a supra trimmed to the max (with parts i have availble), but then he just drives faster than what he did with the eclipse.. And EA won't care about patching tha game anyways as Shift is the newest game...

Azurity 23/10/2009 16:28

I've been trying on Earl quite a while now.. I used the Eclipse to try beat him, but no. At the last 20% of the sprint, he suddently start driving like a god. Just snuggling around those pesky corners you would have had major problems to beat, and the worst? HE JUST CONTINUES TO DRIVE AS FAST AS HE DID BEFORE THE CORNER!

kovacracer 21/08/2009 15:30

the dude was sooooooo easy yall are just bad drivers thats all izzys car i put a junkman engin in it and beat his butt the car is faster that barons

murcielago freak 06/07/2009 22:48

earl was mad easy on the speed trap (i was 701) but the sprint was SOOOOOOOOO HARD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! had to restart the game like 10 times Finally beat him with the porsche cayman s

toushirouof the hitsugaya123 01/06/2009 02:52

yep and that's why we don't do crap

toushirouof the hitsugaya123 01/06/2009 02:50

Deepesh7 27/01/2009 13:46

I also think like you josh_downey. First race very simple, but second man he sucks.
