The Crew 2 Cheats and Unlockables for Xbox One

If players are looking for something fast and exciting, look no further than The Crew 2. Developed by Ubisoft Ivory Tower and published by Ubisoft, this game will take players on the ride of their lives. Featuring an open-world environment through the contiguous United States, players can choose through various cars they wish to race down the track. Hold on, players can also take control of numerous other vehicles, including airplanes, motorcycles, and powerboats.

Available to play on almost all major platforms including PlayStation 4, Windows, Xbox One, and Googe Stadia there are four modes of play in The Crew 2: Street Racing, Off-Road, Freestyle, and Pro Racing. The Crew 2 has a non-linear storyline, allowing players to focus on winning the race. Like most racing games, the game’s primary goal is to win as many races as possible. To achieve this goal, multiplayer and co-op modes allow players to race in “crews” and join “boss” events.

Main Characters in The Crew 2

Latrell Jordan – Street racing master.
Tucker “Tuck” Morgan – Off-road master.
Sofia Valentina Herrera – Freestyle master.
Emmett Lee Parker – Freestyle Master.

The Crew 2 Easy XP, money, and loot boxes

Play the Jersey City Alpha Grand Prix event, which is unlocked after reaching the Star popularity level. It is located next to the Pro Racing HQ. This event always gives a loot box for completion. Keep replaying the event, as it only takes approximately two minutes to complete. Once you reach Performance Level 320, change the difficulty from Normal to Hard. On the Hard difficulty, you will earn more followers (XP) and money for each race completion. It takes a lot of replays to max out your rank, but this method allows you to earn a lot of parts, followers, and money quickly. Additionally, this method works for any event that is short.

40 Easy Photo Ops locations

There is a total of 92 Photo Ops in The Crew 2. To get the “Pics or It Didn’t Happen” achievement, you only need 40. The following video shows the easiest 40 Photo Ops. None of these are missable, as they can still be done after completing the story. You can activate them by going to the pause menu and selecting “Activities”, choose a race type (each class has their own photos), and select the “Photo Album” option. Then, go to the location in the video. In the top left corner of the screen, it will display the requirements for the photo.

When you are at the correct location, the text will have a white background. Press Y to open photo mode. You can use D-pad Left/Right to rewind. For example, some photos require you to do stunts. You can complete the stunt and trigger photo mode and rewind. You can also change the time of day and weather in photo mode. If it requires you to take a photo in the rain at night, you can simply adjust those settings in photo mode. For photos that require pictures of specific cars, you can test drive them for free.

Easy “Drift Like a Tester” achievement

First, get a drift car. The Mazda RX7 is recommended. You can score 100,000 points with the stock settings — upgrades are not needed but help. The easiest track for this is the Airport Terminal D. The event lasts two minutes. You have to clear it in one or two continuous drifts. Do not crash into anything, as it will void your multiplier. When the road goes straight, you must drift left and right just enough, so the drift does not end. When the car is not drifting, the multiplier starts flashing. If you are not drifting for a second, you will lose your multiplier. It takes a bit of practice to get to know the track and figure out when to accelerate and how to take each turn.

Nitrous can also be helpful. If you get too close to the guardrail in a drift, you can use nitrous to push back towards the track. Nitrous also makes you drift through turns faster so you get more points. It is all about holding your drift for long so you can hit the x50 maximum multiplier to quickly get a lot of points. If you can do the entire event in only two continuous drifts, you will get above the 100,000 score to get the “Drift Like a Tester” achievement.

Easy “Easy Rider” achievement

You can easily earn 500 followers in one freestyle sequence by doing four loopings in a row with a plane (open world only). It does not work in races, as it has to be open world. Each looping gives 150 followers.

Easy “Leap of Faith, No Straw” achievement

An easy spot to perform a 100-meter jump on a bike is the ski-jumping hill between Salt Lake City and Salt Lake Resort. The location is listed as “Ski Jump” on the map. The “Ski Jump Rally Cross” race is also there. Select any motorcycle and go there in open world freeplay. Drive down the ski-jump hill to perform a 100 meters (110 yards) jump and get the “Leap of Faith, No Straw” achievement.

Easy “Ride the Jewels” achievement

The most expensive car is the Koenigsegg Regera (worth 1,701,700 credits). You can get the “Ride The Jewels” achievement using test drive (you do not have to buy the car). This can be done at the start of the game, after having unlocked the Street Race HQ. Press the Menu button. Go to “Catalog” — “Koenigsegg” — “Regera” — “HQ”. Press X to test drive. There is a timer during test drives. If you cannot reach the 2 km in a single test drive, you can do another test drive and it will add towards the 2 km total.

Easy “The End Is Nigh” achievement

While in the open world, take a boat or plane to the end of the ocean of the map. You can press Menu to switch to a plane in the open world. Just keep going to the edge of the map until you get the “The End Is Nigh” achievement.
