Hiding Spots are open world locations that allow players to become undetectable by police units. They are featured in Need for Speed: Most Wanted, Need for Speed: Carbon, Need for Speed: Undercover and Need for Speed: World.
Players are granted a quicker cooldown timer and no detection by police units within the "Cooldown" stage of a pursuit upon driving into a Hiding Spot.
Hiding Spots are commonly set in untrafficked places such as construction zones, parking garages, car washing areas from gas stations, tight blind alleys and buildings. They are highlighted as snowflakes on the map.
