While in freeburn (multiplayer free-roam), if you Takedown another player's car or or receive a Takedown from another player, it will spark a 'rivalry' between you. It will also get you a number of mugshots toward the Hotshots in Burnout Paradise achievement if the players you are taking down have a camera.

A Takedown simply requires you to total someone's car, by hitting it with enough force to total it upon impact or by forcing it into a wall. Grinding it along a barrier/wall for long enough or landing on it from a height also count as Takedowns.

I have seen it mentioned in other guides for some reason, but you should not require a vision camera for this at all.

Keep playing and you will get this one before long, assuming you don't get it during normal play.
Monkey540I don't know why, but it seems that you can't get any new rivals if you are in the middle of a challenge.

Lozzy DentonYeah, that's normal. The rival system is inactive during challenges and possibly races too. I don't still own the game though, so I can't confirm.

BlokeCDPConfirmed, rivalries do not occur during challenges.

Lozzy DentonThank you for the info, much appreciated! Would you mind also checking to see if rivalries are also disabled while a race is in progress?

BlokeCDPI don't think they are while racing, as your primary goal is racing and finishing first. Messages flashing up on-screen will detract from the race.

I'm trying to do the freeburn challenges at the moment so will look at this the next time I am in a race.

Boots OrionI finally got this last night and tbh I don't know why I put it off for so long. if someone takes you down that is all that is required...some people seem to think that you have to do the takedowns because that was the case in Burnout Revenge. What I recommend is joining custom freeburns because it lets you pick which ones you want to join. Find one with a decent number of players with a host whose name you don't recognize. Once you have joined drive towards the cluster of cars as ppl normally stay close to each other. When you have become a rival with everyone else in the freeburn, exit the group and promptly join another freeburn. Note that the game will tell you when you have become rivals with someone else. A final note would be that I recommend picking up the Big Island DLC as a lot of ppl seem to hand around in there.

FoogaThis has to be with 50 different gamertags? If that's the case I don't think this is even obtainable anymore unless the online is still active.

mrbellekI understood that if you 'settle' a rivaly, it's removed from your list. You can 'reignite' it by crashing into each other again, though.
