Gauntlet is a game mode featured in Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit (2010) that involves a point to point survival-sprint along a set route. These events are limited to a single racer, but the number of pursuing SCPD units differs depending on the event.
Finishing a gauntlet event will reward the player with a gold medal for completing below that time target, a silver medal for completing below that time target but beyond the gold medal target, and a bronze medal for completing the route below the final time target. Finishing a gauntlet below the final target time will not count as a completed event in the racer career.
