      a. Police Vehicles
    
    CIVIC CRUISER:
    Heat level unlocked: 1
    Bounty for Destruction: 250
    Observations: Looks like a normal police car. I can't get a make or model of
    it, but you can outrun it on the highway with a car that can do 180.
    
    CIVIC UNDERCOVER CRUISER:
    Heat Level Unlocked: 2
    Bounty for Destruction: 500
    Observations: Basically the same as above, except it has no paint on it, making
    it look like a regular civilian car from a distance, which helps the cops find
    you in cooldown mode.
    
    STATE PURSUIT VEHICLE:
    Heat Level Unlocked: 3
    Bounty for Destruction: 2,500
    Observations: This one's a Pontiac GTO. It's very hard to outrun this one on
    the highway, and these are heavier, too.
    
    STATE UNDERCOVER VEHICLE:
    Heat Level Unlocked: 4
    Bounty for Destruction: 5,000
    Observations: Same as above, except there is no white paint on it, making it
    look like a civilian car from a distance.
    
    FEDERAL POLICE VEHICLE:
    Heat Level Unlocked: 5
    Bounty for Destruction: 20,000
    Observations: It's a Corvette C6. No chance of outrunning this on the highway,
    and Sergeant Cross drives with 'em, so it's pretty hard to avoid them. These
    actually make it easy to break through roadblocks, if the 'Vettes make them.
    
    FEDERAL UNDERCOVER VEHICLE:
    Heat Level Unlocked: 6
    Bounty for Destruction: 25,000
    Observations: Hot damn. If you come across one of these, you are winning the
    game. They have the same performance as the Fed. Police vehicle.
    
    CROSS:
    Heat Level Unlocked: 5
    Bounty for Destruction: 200,000
    Observations: The most skilled driver of the force. He's in a black 'vette.
    He is very strategic, and is very hard to take down. Even if you do, he still
    directs what's going on. If you do kill him... Well, the bounty milestone
    shouldn't be so hard anymore. And you can say to your friends; LoL I PwNeD
    CrOsS I WiN At LiFe OmG WtF!!!111!!1!1!!Shift+1!!!
    
    SUV LIGHT:
    Heat Level Unlocked: 3
    Bounty for Destruction: 10,000
    Observations: Only used in Heat level 3. These function mostly as Rhinos
    (You'll learn about these later in the section) and roadblocking tools. The
    only way you can get these to chase after you is when no other cop is chasing
    you. Then the SUV Light(s) will follow you until another cop arrives.
    
    SUV HEAVY:
    Heat Level Unlocked: 4
    Bounty for Destruction: 15,000
    Observations: Basically the same as above, but these are heavier. Which means
    it's harder to break through roadblocks, harder to endure a rhino hit, etc.
    Also, in later heat levels, these will chase after you for longer periods of
    time.
    
    TURBOCHARGED SUV:
    Heat Level Unlocked: 7
    Bounty for destruction: 75,000 (Thanks King_Brandon)
    Observations: The worst of the worst. Faster than Corvette C6's. Heavier than
    Corvette C6's. Always on your ass. Better watch it, these things are merciless.
    
    HELICOPTER: 
    Heat Level Unlocked: 4
    Bounty for Destruction: N/A
    Observations: Indestructible. The only way you get rid of these is hiding
    inside a tunnel so they can't see you, or getting near a tower or something
    and damaging them. They can also run out of fuel. These do get more, "involved" 
    with the pursuit in later levels. How, you ask? Well, they ram your car,
    basically. Also, very rarely, you can see them used in a roadblock. Remember,
    they are indestructible, so try not to hit them if you do see them.
    
      b. Police Methods
    
    (((Box in)))
    
    The box in method is used when you crash or are crashed. The police will
    surround you completely so that you can't move. This is what a box in looks
    like:
    
    KEY
    
    ||||- You
    ====- Cop
    
                      =        =
                       = ==== =
                        =||||=
                         =  =
    
    (((Rhino)))
    
    This is when police send an SUV to ram you head on and stop you in your tracks.
    Normally the SUV's will come in two. If they hit you, and there are no other
    cops around, they will stick around and bust you.
    
    (((Road Block)))
    
    A roadblock is where the police set up vehicles so that you will hit the cars
    and make you stop. Of course, there is a weakness to this. The sawhorse will
    be put either in between a gap or in front of a car. This is the weak point.
    Smash through it and you should get through. Oh, and another tip. Don't hit
    vehicles on the engine side. The weight will stop you from going through (all
    cops are front engine). Here's what some roadblocks look like... (the arrows
    show which direction the car is facing)
    
    >>>>/<<<<- cop
    ŻŻŻŻ/____- Sawhorse
    
    
    >>>> <<<<____>>>> <<<<
    
    >>>> <<<< ____
             >>>>
    
    >>>>ŻŻŻŻ
       <<<<
    
    (((Spikestrip)))
    
    This is just like a roadblock, except there are spikes. If you run over the
    spikes, then your car is immobile and the pursuit is over. Here are some
    examples of spike strips...
    
    >>>>/<<<<- cop
    ŻŻŻŻ/____- sawhorse
    ....- Spikestrip
    
    
    >>>> <<<<.........>>>> <<<<
    
    ........<<<<
    
    <<<<....__>>>>
          <<<<
    
    ........<<<< >>>>........
    
    >>>> <<<<........
    
    (((Helicopter)))
    
    The helicopter is a bad thing for you if you are trying to evade the cops. You
    have to hide under a tunnel or keep the pursuit going until his fuel runs out.
    In later levels, the helicopter will get more involved with the pursuit.
    
    (((Rolling Roadblock)))
    
    This is where two cop cars drive right next to eachother in front of you. They
    will brake, and leave you stuck. Here's what a rolling roadblock looks like...
    
    ^^
    ^^- You
    
    ==
    ==- Cop              == ==
                         == ==
    
                           ^^
                           ^^
    
      c. When you get Caught
    
    When you get caught, you're in a lot of trouble. All of the infractions you
    have accumulated over all the pursuits you have gotten into are added up, plus
    any infractions you broke on the pursuit you got busted on. If you get busted
    three times, you get your car impounded. With a strike increase marker, you
    can increase the number of times you can get busted and not lose your car by
    one, a maximum of 5 total. If you cannot pay the fines you get, you also get
    your car impounded. If you use a get out of jail free marker, your heat level
    stays where it was when you got busted and your fines are postponed. If you
    get caught again and don't have a marker, you still have to pay the accumulated
    fines. Also, when your car gets impounded, it takes a while for the cops to
    tell you what the price is. This price is normally steep. However, if you have
    an impound release marker, you can release your car anytime for free and have
    it just like it never was in a pursuit.
    
    
      d. How to get Away
    
    Yeah, yeah, you know about pursuit breakers and slipping through traffic, blah,
    blah, blah. Here's how I get away from the cops...
    
    ((Use a roadblock))
    
    This may sound crazy, but if there's a roadblock on the road, go through it.
    Remember, the cops aren't made of vapor. They will hit the roadblock just as
    you will, and if you go through the sawhorse or go through an opening, then
    you can get through clean and the cops will have a problem. This is especially
    effective if a cop ahead of you rams the block, in which you use the
    speedbreaker and get through the hole that car created.
    
    ((Spin a cop car))
    
    Even if there are multiple cars on you, this still works. To spin a car, go
    to it's tail end, and turn so the front end of your car is pushing against
    the back end of their car. Now, one cop car should at least hit the guy you
    just spun around. Hey, it's something! Plus, the impact from the cop hitting
    the guy you just spun might knock both of them out! That's two! In other words,
    higher than I can count! This is best used on thin roads.
    
    ((Spin Traffic))
    
    This one is a little easier than before, but a little less effective. To do
    this, use speedbreaker just before you pass a car, and just swipe his side.
    Don't rear end him. Just swipe his side. He should spin around and cops should
    hit him. This is best used on thin roads, and also more effective when the
    cops are fairly far behind you. Why? The guy's traveling at a low speed, so it
    will take him a while to turn! Oh, and they always turn when hit, so don't
    worry about turning them.
    
    ((Slam their side))
    
    This one is best used when you're being chased by one unit. Make a cop get
    close to a wall. When you are a little bit ahead of him (and fairly close to
    him), switch on speedbreaker and swerve to the side where the cop's at as hard
    as you can. You should knock him into the wall and flip him, so it's pretty
    much a guaranteed kill. If you miss, however you go straight into the wall, so
    execute carefully. Also, do not use with many cops on your tail. With you in
    the wall, the cops can easily bust you.
    
      e. Heat Levels
    
    HEAT LEVEL 1: Here, they use standard cop cars. Very easy to take out, and
    they just try to turn your car. No biggie.
    
    HEAT LEVEL 2: Here, they use undercover cop cars. Harder to see from a
    distance. Also, you may encounter a roadblock in this level.
    
    HEAT LEVEL 3: Cars are upgraded to GTO interceptors. Roadblocks are more common
    now. Also, SUVs are introduced here as rhinos or as roadblocking material.
    
    HEAT LEVEL 4: Cars are now undercover GTO interceptors. Spikestrips are in
    use now. Also, a helicopter will fly overhead watching the pursuit.
    
    HEAT LEVEL 5: Cars are upgraded to Corvette C6 Interceptors. These things are
    fast. Also, Cross comes in and joins the pursuit.
    
    HEAT LEVEL 6: Unattainable by a standard chase. This level is reached at the
    end of the game. Here, SUV's actually chase you like the regular cars do, Cross
    is on you, along with a bunch of undercover C6's. The helicopter is present,
    too.
    
    HEAT LEVEL 7: I do not know much about this one (as I have never reached this
    level), but I have heard about it. Here, they use turbocharged SUVs that are
    faster than the C6 interceptors (O_O) along with being heavier. This is only
    attainable in the black edition of challenge mode.
    
      f. Stupid glitches
    
    Here, I will tell you about the stupid stuff that can happen in pursuits that
    can make thirty minutes go to waste.
    
    ((Resetting))
    
    If you reset your car in a pursuit with a cop somewhere near you, you get
    busted automatically.
    
    ((Pursuit breaker near spike strip))
    
    Be careful when using a pursuit breaker near a spike strip. Since the AI takes
    over when you use a pursuit breaker near cops, it might just drive over the
    spike strip, causing you to get busted.
    
    ((Not so clear getaway))
    
    In later heat levels, if you crash or get crashed, and there is a fairly wide
    space you could easily fit through, and your heat meter is about 3/4 full,
    you can still get busted, even if you are moving.
    
      g. Infractions
    
    Here are the infractions and how to get them...
    
    SPEEDING- Travel at about 150-160 MPH. Make sure that a cop can see you going
    that fast, so try this more in the later levels.
    
    EXCESSIVE SPEEDING- Travel at about 170-180 MPH while being seen. Again,
    attempt at higher heat levels.
    
    RECKLESS DRIVING- Travel over 200MPH. Pretty much the only cars that can keep
    up with you now is any car used from level 5 on up.
    
    RAMMING A POLICE VEHICLE- Hit any police vehicle at a fairly high rate of
    speed. Which means not at 5MPH.
    
    DAMAGE TO PROPERTY- Hit traffic sighns, mailboxes, break glass, hit a pursuit
    breaker, hit ANYTHING that won't stop you in your tracks or slow you down
    a lot (meaning civilian cars, cops, and brick walls don't work) while a cop is
    watching you.
    
    HIT AND RUN- Hit any civilian vehicle and keep moving. Make sure a cop sees
    you. Sideswiping is a good way to do this.
    
    RESISTING ARREST- Get into cooldown mode. That's it.
    
    DRIVING OFF ROADWAY- Go fairly fast on something that a civilian vehicle
    really wouldn't normally go on. Construction sites, parks, sidewalks, etc.
    Make sure the cops can see you doing this.
    
      h. Ultimate Cop Strategies
    
    Here will be all of the ultimate cop strategies from glitches, to secrets,
    to ultimate spots, etc.
    
    ((Bus Station Glitch))
    
    Okay, you need bounty and time in a pursuit. Well, there's the bus station 
    glitch. First, go to Rosewood and to the bus station. If you're facing the 
    ramps, go up the left one going about 60mph. Once you are on the buses, brake 
    and stay on. All of the cop cars will be ramming the buses, killing eachother, 
    etc. and you will not get busted. If a car comes on the buses, you can try to
    ram him off, or run for it. Normally, if you want to jump off of the buses
    successfully, you need to get a little bit of speed. If things go sideways,
    blow through the gas station a few blocks in front of you.
    
    ((Hickley Field))
    
    NOTE: This is not to be confused with the football field on Rockport Highway.
    Now, if you are in a pursuit, go to the college circle. Take one of the four
    exits that twists in an S-like fashion. At the end of that, there should be
    a stadium. Blow through it, using the two pursuit breakers. When you get into
    cooldown mode, there's a hiding spot directly afterwards.
    
    ((Trailer Park))
    
    Near Dunwich Village, there is a shortcut. This shortcut will take you into
    a trailer park which has two pursuit breakers and a hiding spot.
    
    ((Hiding Spot))
    
    If you're not in cooldown mode, you can still use a hiding spot. If the cops
    are not directly behind you, a hiding spot often will send you into cooldown
    mode. You then move out of the hiding spot and move back in to speed up the
    process of cooldown mode.
    
    ((Blowout))
    
    Look to the East of your world map. Now, you see the series of turns that look
    like an 8? Look to the eastern part of that. There are two putsuit breakers
    and a hiding spot in a construction area.

      a. Blacklist racer info
    
    Often times, when you are racing a blacklist racer, they race like a robot. The
    personality in their bio often times does not come into play in an obvious way.
    Although, they do know shortcuts. If they miss one, then they probably
    overturned a turn. Sometimes they just miss it for no reason, but meh. Also,
    on certain turns, some opponents spin out. You get more money for these races,
    but they are also longer and have harder opponents. 
    
    Here are the things you can get with the markers after you beat a blacklist
    racer:
    
    *Impound Release Marker: Releases any car you have impounded for free.
    *Increase Strike: Increases the maximum amount of times you can get caught by
    the cops and not get your car impounded.
    *Extra Cash: Gives you a chosen sum of money to spend.
    *Get out of Jail Free: Lets you get out of a pursuit without paying fines.
    *Pink Slip to rival's car: Choose this and you get the car your opponent was
    driving.
    Unique Part Upgrades: Redeemable for a body enhancement.
    Unique Performance Upgrades: Redeemable for a performance enhancement.
    Unique Visual Upgrades: Redeemable for a visual enhancement.
    
    See those with stars next to them? Those are bonus markers. You don't see what
    they are until you use one of your two choices. There are six markers total,
    and, as said before, you get two picks. You can always get the car, but the
    others are interchangeable with different blacklist members. You also get money
    for winning the races, and you unlock cars to buy and upgrades as well.
    Sometimes you unlock a different borough.
    
      b. Walkthrough
    
    Blacklist #15: Ho Seun (Sonny)
    Ride: VW Golf GTI
    Strength: Circuit Races
    Bio: This here is Sonny. He's dumped a whole lot of cash into his car. That
    ride is worked so don't be fooled, it's a rocket. He does anything he can to
    get a hold of parts before they hit the streets.
    
    TARGETS:
    Race wins: 3
    Milestones: 3
    Total Bounty: 20,000
    
    RACE 1:
    Circuit
    Ironwood Estates
    1,500$ cash reward
    Little chance of cops
    2 laps
    6.8 Miles
    
    Really easy. Take the two short cuts to your left at the start of the race
    and also take that shortcut straight ahead after you get off the highway and
    you should win easily.
    
    RACE 2:
    Sprint
    Diamond & Union
    1,500$ cash reward
    Large chance of cops
    1 lap
    5.6 miles
    
    At the start, take the short cut through the aquarium, and if you run into the
    cops, don't fool around with 'em. Just finish the race.
    
    RACE 3:
    Lap Knockout
    Hickley Field
    1,500$
    Little chance of cops
    3 laps
    8.1 miles
    
    THe most straightforward course over. No shortcuts, but do watch out for a
    partial roundabout turn at the beginning. Take that slow. Otherwise, easy race.

      a. Free Roam
    
    Just driving around. Use free roam to go to shops and stuff. You can also go
    to race markers in the city, get in a pursuit if you have been a naughty boy,
    or you can always blow through a speed trap. I mostly use free roam for driving
    practice.
    
      b. Races
    
    Races. One of the things you need to do to beat a blacklist rival. These are
    also used for challenging a blacklist rival. There are different kinds,
    described here:
    
    ((Circuit))
    
    There is a pre-mapped track in which the start point and the end point meet
    and there is a track that you can go around. You go around this track two or
    more times.
    
    ((Sprint))
    
    You go from point A to point B as fast as you can.
    
    ((Lap Knockout))
    
    Kind of like circuit, but each time you pass the finish line for a lap in last
    place, then you get knocked out of the race and lose.
    
    ((Speedtrap))
    
    Kind of like sprint, but there are speedtraps in the middle of the race
    (detected by an orange radar symbol on your radar). Once you pass a speedtrap,
    it records your speed as you pass. At the end, the person with the highest
    speed from all of those speed traps added together wins. You do not have to
    cross the line first to win. However, if you don't, then you start to lose
    points after the first person crosses the line. Same goes for the AI.
    
    ((Tollbooth))
    
    Kind of like sprint, except you have to go from one tollbooth to another in a
    limited amount of time. If you take more than you are alloted, you lose. If
    you take less, then the bonus time you have left is added to the time you have
    to get to the next booth.
    
    ((Drag))
    
    This is where racers are lined up on a starting line. You accelerate, and try
    to reach the end first. However, you don't have to steer. The game steers for
    you. All you have to do is change lanes using the D-pad. Although, you have to
    shift manually, no matter what. So, if you forget to shift and your engine
    overheats or you hit traffic fairly hard (I have continued the race after
    hitting traffic), you are knocked out of the race.
    
    PLEASE NOTE: There is no Street X or Drift races.
    
      c. Milestones
    
    These are specific Milestones you have to do in order to challenge a blacklist
    racer. These are specific to every racer, and each increases your bounty. There
    is only one kind of milestone that isn't a pursuit milestone. Here are the 
    milestones...
    
    ((Speedtrap))
    
    You have to pass a speedtrap going a certain speed. This is the non-pursuit
    milestone. Shown With a camera taking a picture.
    
    ((Infractions))
    
    You have to commit a certain number of infractions. Info on infractions in the
    cop section. Shown by a cop kar with a badge near it.
    
    ((^Pursuit Time))
    
    You have to be in one pursuit for a certain amount of time. Shown with a clock
    with an arrow pointing up.
    
    ((vPursuit Time))
    
    You have to get out of a pursuit before time runs out. Shown with a clock with
    an arrow pointing down.
    
    ((Tagging))
    
    YOu have to damage (or ram, or touch) a certain amount of police cars. Shown
    with a cop car with a line through it.
    
    ((Roadblock))
    
    You have to dodge a certain amount of roadblocks. Shown with a dashed line
    through a cop car.
    
    ((Spike Strip))
    
    You have to dodge a certain amount of spike strips. Shown with a car over
    spikes. Dodging a spike strip counts also as dodging a roadblock as well as
    dodging this.
    
    ((Cost to State))
    
    Just destroy stuff and break stuff and crash into cars and use pursuit
    breakers and all that good stuff. Shown by a coin floating above a piggy bank.
    And no, you can't steal the piggy bank. I've tried. >_<
    
    ((Bounty))
    
    Get your bounty high enough by hitting other milestones in the pursuit,
    immobilizing other cop cars, and lasting out the pursuit. Shown by a big,
    striped badge.
    
      d. Bounty Challenges
    
    Bounty is a way of the blacklist tracking how much lawbreaking you do. Now,
    you have to hit a certain bounty in order to challenge a blacklist racer. There
    are county challenges for a blacklist racer, and I will present them to you:
    
    -----ROSEWOOD BOUNTY CHALLENGES-----
    
    1/12
    ROSEWOOD POLICE STATION
    If you're looking for trouble, this is the hornets nest. There are always cops
    coming in and out of the station.
    
    2/12
    ROSEWOOD FIRE STATION
    Frequent race activity near the fire halls have made the cops increase their
    patrols of these areas. The surrounding roads are great for racing and chasing.
    
    3/12
    FOREST GREEN COUNTRY CLUB
    The city and the police department are protective of their Country Club. If you
    decide to check it out, make sure you can handle your ride off road.
    
    4/12
    DOUGHNUT SHOP (of course)
    The coffee shop is a likely place to find the cops, and they don't like being
    disturbed when they're out on a break.
    
    -----CAMDEN BEACH BOUNTY CHALLENGES-----
    
    5/12
    OCEAN HILLS POLICE STATION
    This is a great location to catch some big air, and the cops are always on the
    lookout for reckless drivers.
    
    6/12
    OCEAN HILLS FIRE STATION
    Frequent patrols make this a hotspot for cops. Make sure the bridges and 
    tunnels are clear before you take a crack at this one.
    
    7/12
    CAMDEN PENITENTIARY
    You have to be a bit crazy to try this one. Not a lot of ways out and plenty of
    cops to shut you down.
    
    8/12
    DUNWICH VILLAGE
    Don't be fooled by the nice surroundings. Cops out here don't lay back when it
    comes to racers. You might regret taking this one on.
    
    -----ROCKPORT BOUNTY CHALLENGES-----
    
    9/12
    ROCKPORT POLICE STATION
    The downtown cop shop offers a maze of tight turns and quick sprints. Now
    there's also a mention of some sewer short cuts you can use when things start
    to go sideways.
    
    10/12
    ROCKPORT FIRE STATION
    Only check out this older part of Rockport if you're looking for trouble. Just
    like the Fire Halls in Rosewood, the cops have this area staked out for racers.
    
    11/12
    RIVERFRONT STATION
    Now here's a spot that will get you to your top end fast. Use the highway to
    open it up and see how long you can keep it going.
    
    12/12
    ROCKPORT CENTURY SQUARE
    Century Square starts you off in downtown Rockport and lets you take things
    wherever they lead you.
