Drifting is very important in Need for Speed Unbound as it helps you regain your nitrous much faster. The game is flexible when it comes to how you initiate a drift. There are multiple options to choose from. In this Need For Speed Unbound guide, we go over which drifting method is the best.

Best Drifting Method In Need For Speed Unbound

The following is what you need to know about the different ways in which you can initiate a drift in Need for Speed Unbound:

Brake To Drift

Brake to drift is the most simple way of initiating a drift and you might be familiar with it if you have played other Need for Speed games or other racing games. This is ideal for beginners but since you are breaking in order to start the drift, you do lose some momentum. So this method is not going to get you the fastest drifts. We recommend not braking for too long since you want to keep the momentum going.

Throttle Stab To Drift

This is the smoothest option that you can pick since you do not need to brake and lose your momentum. This is also a bit tricky to pull off as you will need to be rather accurate. Do some practice and take your time. It will be worth it in the long run.

Hit The Handbrake To Drift

Regardless of which option you select, you can always use the handbrake to start a drift. This is not going to be the fastest option but it will ensure a quick and sharp turn. This can come in handy if you are coming into a corner too fast.

All things considered, brake to drift is ideal for beginners. Throttle to drift takes some getting used to but it is the smoothest option which we recommend you get the hang of. You can always use your handbrake to drift if you overshoot or are coming in too fast.
