I'm what you would call a veteran driving game player. Played them since Pole Position when I was a kid. I've been big on racing since forever, to the point where I actually do it in my spare time. (LEGAL Racing out on Long Island.) It's in game that I pretty much let lose and turn into a maniac. And as such, here's my pursuit stats so far on Undercover.

Mind you, I've already completed Career Mode, and went the whole mode without getting busted once. Ah, what fun it is to make Tri-City cops look like blithering idiots. Some of the pursuit I've had were priceless, damn shame I didn't record some of the mongo ones, like the 2...count em TWO times I escaped pursuit AFTER running over tire spikes. One of those was the 19+ minute pursuit you see listed as my longest to date.

So what's everyone else's pursuit stats looking like?

Started a new game, but my 100% was 6:37 and shortest :09.
Shame cause I had a 3 hour on MW lol...

Know what you mean about the let loose and turn into maniac part, heh.

@ kaoz666: If you choose a high performance car equipped w/ N2O to boot - w/ the objective to evade the cops rather than mess w/ them by getting yourself into difficult situations - then I agree, the cops are a lot easier to deal with than they were back in MW or Carbon.

Me, I've been trying to make it around Tri City's perimeter in a stock (no N2O) GTO recently and I still can't get past my 26-minute record - the cops just 'give up' on me eventually w/out bringing reinforcements (even though they repeatedly request those). As t3ku stated - in MW / Carbon you could pretty much go on for hours, in UC this would be rather tricky for you would need to start by trying to save the cops from themselves. :-)

Anyway, if you decide to follow a set of rules - the pursuits will grow considerably more difficult. I don't believe that UC's pursuit-related objective is 'not to get busted'. I'd say that it's more rewarding to try & complicate life for yourself in Tri City, and - if you don't get busted - that's an added benefit of all the struggle you've subjected yourself to.

lol I once evaded cops in 9 seconds. It's so dam hard to let a pursuit go past 5 minutes. So I don't get how you got 3 mil cost to state. (Can't get the achievement damit.)

Cost to State is easy. Just be a raving lunatic. If it looks like it can be smashed, smash it. I pretty much use roadblocks for target practice as well. Sometimes if there's a civi car in the way, I'll ram it, push it forward and use it as a battering ram INTO a road block. My level of "creativity" astounds even myself sometimes, and I find myself saying "If I ever did something like that in real life, damn getting arrested, they're calling in a sharpshooter from a helicopter."

On my Viper, I worked it up to a Level 5 heat rating in one pursuit, as have most of my cars at one time been level 5. But I've still yet to encounter any Rhinos, and yes...sometimes the cops do just give up the pursuit. But when they do that, I just double back and provoke them again.

if you go on a spike strip and your tires blow you can still outrun cops for 5 minutes:(

(...) I worked it up to a Level 5 heat rating in one pursuit, as have most of my cars at one time been level 5. But I've still yet to encounter any Rhinos (...)

That's just plain weird. Once I reached level 5, all I get is (~) 3 Civic Cruisers quickly (in less than a minute) joined and replaced by Porsches and SUV's. Even if a given car's heat level indicator says '1', I still get level 5 cops all over me. (But that's what I want, so I'm not complaining.)

(...) and yes...sometimes the cops do just give up the pursuit. But when they do that, I just double back and provoke them again.

Thing is, if you're not 'protective' of them, after around 6 minutes, they tend to withdraw, 'lose interest' and the cooldown meter fills up in a second. I've been trying real hard to break my 26-minute pursuit length record, and I keep failing! I've just had an SUV cop (that definitely wasn't 'disabled') 'decide' that enough is enough despite all my frantic encouragements & protests. I end up with this single SUV following me like some escort, and I carefully avoid pursuit breakers and traffic-congested areas, but it doesn't help anyway! There are no more roadblocks, no reinforcements of any kind. It's a bloody nightmare!
