Rapid Response is a game mode featured in Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit (2010) that involves a timed sprint along a set point to point route. These events are limited to a single SCPD unit, and they are tasked with reaching a location highlighted by dispatch within a set amount of time.
As the Seacrest County Police Department is obliged to protect and serve the residents of Seacrest County, officers will have penalties added to their event timer should they perform certain actions that would damage their unit or civilian vehicles;
- Collision +2 seconds penalty
- Hit Traffic +3 seconds penalty
Finishing a rapid response event will reward the player with a distinction for completing below that time target, a merit for completing below that time target but beyond the distinction target, and a pass for completing the route below the final time target. Finishing a rapid response below the final target time will not count as a completed event in the SCPD career.
