A Highway Battle is a special form of Outrun. This race mode was only available in Need for Speed: Undercover. It features similar gameplay mechanics as Outrun with a greater influence from Canyon Duel featured in Need for Speed: Carbon.
The winner is the first driver to overtake their opponents and sustain a lead of 1000ft (300m). The courses are along Highway routes with large amounts of traffic.
Highway Battles cannot be triggered in free roam as they are generally specific to a certain rival.
