The Crew 2 - Event & Skill Difficulty

A list of events and skills, their relative difficulty, and locations.

Other The Crew 2 Guides:


Intro



So I got kinda annoyed with my inability to remember which events are easy and which ones are nice to look at, all that jazz. This guide is a list of all the events and skills in the game and their relative difficulty along with the region in which you can find them.

I'm publishing the vehicles that I used for these events, but I'm going to try and take into account the ability to use multiple vehicles when determining difficulty. For escapes, I'm rating this assuming you fast travel to the challenge and continue in the direction it faces you by default. I'm also using the chase camera, zoomed out once on land vehicles.

Difficulty will be rated from easiest to hardest, making 1/10 the easiest and 10/10 the hardest.

Off-Road Skills



Waterfalls Escape:

  • East Coast (Near Niagara Falls) 
  • Money: $1875 
  • Vehicle Tested: BMW R1200GS Adventure (Rally Raid) (PL 105) 
  • Difficulty: 3/10 
  • Note: Fairly large clearings, but a large number of trees with a few small jumps that will make it harder to avoid sliding into obstacles. 

Salem Woods Escape:

  • East Coast (Maine-ish) 
  • Money: $1875 
  • Vehicle Tested: BMW R1200GS Adventure (Rally Raid) (PL 105) 
  • Difficulty: 1/10 
  • Note: Follow the dirt road here. Aside from two small turns at the beginning, it's a straightaway -- you can reach the minimum distance without any trouble and if you're good at dodging trees can easily make it double the distance. 

Seaside Slalom:

  • East Coast (Just north of Massachusetts' "hook") 
  • Money: $1875 
  • Vehicle Tested: BMW R1200GS Adventure (Rally Raid) (PL 105) 
  • Difficulty: 6/10 
  • Note: Lots of minor obstructions that make it hard to see. If you're using a bike this one isn't as bad, but if you're attempting to use a car or truck you're gonna have to take this one slow. 

StormX Arena Slalom:

  • East Coast (on Massachusetts' hook) 
  • Money: $1875 
  • Vehicle Tested: BMW R1200GS Adventure (Rally Raid) (PL 105) 
  • Difficulty: 5/10 
  • Note: The turns on this one aren't very tight but the clutter makes lots of these a tight squeeze for larger vehicles. Another one that would be a lot easier for bikes. 

Pit Mines Escape:

  • East Coast (West of NYC) 
  • Money: $1875 
  • Vehicle Tested: BMW R1200GS Adventure (Rally Raid) (PL 106) 
  • Difficulty: 3/10 
  • Note: There's a shallow incline to start and then a steep hill. It's pretty easy to hit trees when jumping the hill, but if you go left immediately after jumping the hill, you can hit the minimum distance fairly easily. 

Bayonne Slalom:

  • East Coast (South of NYC) 
  • Money: $1875 
  • Vehicle Tested: BMW R1200GS Adventure (Rally Raid) (PL 106) 
  • Difficulty: 4/10 
  • Note: This one is fairly straightforward until about 2/3 of the way through. It's mostly pylons in a straight line until that point, at which point machinery starts getting in the way. You should reach the minimum score fairly easily. You might even be able to use an SR vehicle as long it handles dirt fairly well. Space 

Industries Slalom:

  • The South (Georgia/Florida Panhandle)
  • Money: $1875
  • Vehicle Tested: BMW R1200GS Adventure (Rally Raid) (PL 106)
  • Difficulty: 3/10
  • Note: I tested this one with a PL 101 Mercedes X-Class too. For off-road bikes this is a piece of cake, but in the truck you're gonna need to do a bit of braking. The obstacles aren't especially tricky but the pylons can sneak up on you. 

Everglades Slalom:

  • The South (Florida)
  • Money: $3750
  • Vehicle Tested: BMW R1200GS Adventure (Rally Raid) (PL 106)
  • Difficulty: 3/10
  • Note: This one isn't all that bad. There are 3 gates that could sneak up on you but they're not hidden or anything. 3 and a half if you're tripped up by checkpoints that aren't marked with pylons. 

Highland Park Slalom:

  • Detroit
  • Money: $3750
  • Vehicle Tested: BMW R1200GS Adventure (Rally Raid) (PL 106)
  • Difficulty: 7/10
  • Note: This is one of my least favorite ones. Lots of quick (but slight) turns, and a good few turns that block vision of the next checkpoint. If you're doing these for quick money, skip this one. 

Bluegrass Slalom:

  • Midwest (East of St Louis)
  • Money: $1875
  • Vehicle Tested: BMW R1200GS Adventure (Rally Raid) (PL 106)
  • Difficulty: 4/10
  • Note: Not hard, but not fun either. In larger vehicles it's going to be a tad more difficult -- almost the entire thing is maneuvering around solar panels. Despite this it's not too hard to hit the minimum score gate. 

Bluegrass Slalom:

  • Midwest (Between Chicago and St Louis)
  • Money: $1875
  • Vehicle Tested: BMW R1200GS Adventure (Rally Raid) (PL 106)
  • Difficulty: 2/10
  • Note: About as easy as slaloms get. Pretty generous checkpoints in terms of space. The only real opportunity to get lost is a hairpin turn, which should be the second-last checkpoint you need if you're doing this with moderate speed. 

Great Plains Slalom:

  • The South (North of Dallas)
  • Money: $3750
  • Vehicle Tested: BMW R1200GS Adventure (Rally Raid) (PL 106)
  • Difficulty: 2/10
  • Note: The difficulty here doesn't come from the checkpoints (wide open) but from the small jumps that accompany a lot of them -- if your vehicle slides a good bit you're going to want to be careful. 

Central Woods Escape:

  • Midwest (Smack in the middle of the country)
  • Money: $1875
  • Vehicle Tested: BMW R1200GS Adventure (Rally Raid) (PL 106)
  • Difficulty: 1/10
  • Note: 2nd easiest escape in the game. It's off-road so it doesn't move too fast, and shortly after starting you reach a clearing that obscures your vision a lot with tall bushes but has no trees or rocks to crash into -- you can reach double the minimum distance very, very easily. 

Black Hills Escape:

  • Midwest (West of Chicago)
  • Money: $1875
  • Vehicle Tested: BMW R1200GS Adventure (Rally Raid) (PL 107)
  • Difficulty: 1/10
  • Note: Straightforward -- just follow the road. 

Pikes Forest Escape:

  • Mountain States (Halfway between St. Louis and Salt Lake City)
  • Money: $1875
  • Vehicle Tested: BMW R1200GS Adventure (Rally Raid) (PL 107)
  • Difficulty: 1/10
  • Note: Laughably easy. Probably easiest in the game. It spawns you in a clearing -- just follow the clearing and you'll reach the minimum distance easily. 

Arch Park Trail Escape:

  • Mountain States (Halfway between St. Louis and Las Vegas)
  • Money: $1875
  • Vehicle Tested: BMW R1200GS Adventure (Rally Raid) (PL 107)
  • Difficulty: 4/10
  • Note: The multiple forks make it hard to find the "wrong" path but easy to hit walls -- you can also find dead-ends, as I have multiple times. 

Navajo Trail Escape:

  • Mountain States (West of Dallas)
  • Money: $1875
  • Vehicle Tested: BMW R1200GS Adventure (Rally Raid) (PL 107)
  • Difficulty: 3/10
  • Note: The jumps introduce the possibility that you could end up sliding out of control. Oddly enough the hardest part of this one is hitting the minimum score gate -- once you hit the road it's pretty easy to keep going for a while if you use your nitro. I got about 5 times the minimum score with the bike listed above. 

Grand Canyon Escape:

  • Grand Canyon
  • Money: $1875
  • Vehicle Tested: BMW R1200GS Adventure (Rally Raid) (PL 107)
  • Difficulty: 3/10
  • Note: This one gets a 3/10 for the potential handling trickiness. On bikes it's not bad, but I did this in Lancia Delta (for RX races) and I ran into problems several times with being forced to slow down or sliding off a cliff. 

Salt Lake Resorts Slalom:

  • Mountain States (East of Salt Lake City)
  • Money: $1875
  • Vehicle Tested: BMW R1200GS Adventure (Rally Raid) (PL 107)
  • Difficulty: 1/10
  • Note: If you can handle slalom pylons arranged in a straight line, you can handle this. 

Rockies Escape:

  • Mountain States (Northeast of Salt Lake City)
  • Money: $1875
  • Vehicle Tested: BMW R1200GS Adventure (Rally Raid) (PL 107)
  • Difficulty: 3/10
  • Note: Following the road strictly, you can do it with no trouble. If you're feeling ballsy you can jump down the hills and skip the switchbacks. 

Fergus Pass Escape:

  • Mountain States (Canadian Border)
  • Money: $1875
  • Vehicle Tested: BMW R1200GS Adventure (Rally Raid) (PL 107)
  • Difficulty: 6/10
  • Note: One of the harder off-road escapes. The steep downhill combined with jumps and trees makes it hard to maintain control even if you're using something with good traction. 

Conifer Forest Escape:

  • Mountain States (Northwest of Salt Lake City)
  • Money: $1875
  • Vehicle Tested: BMW R1200GS Adventure (Rally Raid) (PL 107)
  • Difficulty: 3/10
  • Note: A clearing leading into a patch of trees leading into another clearing. The trees occur right around where you would reach the minimum distance so navigate carefully. 

Death Valley Slalom:

  • Mountain States (North of Las Vegas)
  • Money: $3750
  • Vehicle Tested: BMW R1200GS Adventure (Rally Raid) (PL 107)
  • Difficulty: 2/10
  • Note: This is another one navigating a monster truck course -- unlike the other one, this one actually gives you a decent amount of space to maneuver. 

West Rim Escape:

  • Grand Canyon (Southeast of Las Vegas)
  • Money: $1875
  • Vehicle Tested: BMW R1200GS Adventure (Rally Raid) (PL 107)
  • Difficulty: 2/10
  • Note: There's two options at the beginning of this one. I prefer to go right instead of left -- on the right it's a pretty open field with nothing much in the way of obstacles. Small rocks will launch you into the air but won't reset you. 

Big Land Slalom:

  • Mountain States (Mexican Border)
  • Money: $3750
  • Vehicle Tested: BMW R1200GS Adventure (Rally Raid) (PL 107)
  • Difficulty: 3/10
  • Note: Slightly tricky (only slightly). Checkpoints are confined, usually by low-hanging airplane wings as you navigate the aircraft boneyard. 

Black Mount Escape:

  • Mountain States (Mexican Border)
  • Money: $1875
  • Vehicle Tested: BMW R1200GS Adventure (Rally Raid) (PL 107)
  • Difficulty: 3/10
  • Note: Stay on the right side of the river. 

Temecula Wineries Slalom:

  • West Coast (Southwesternmost point)
  • Money: $3750
  • Vehicle Tested: BMW R1200GS Adventure (Rally Raid) (PL 107)
  • Difficulty: 2/10
  • Note: The challenge on this one comes more from the visual obstructions than the slalom itself. In chase cam it's not too bad, in cockpit view it's a piece of hot garbage. 

San Bernardino Escape:

  • West Coast (East of LA)
  • Money: $1875
  • Vehicle Tested: BMW R1200GS Adventure (Rally Raid) (PL 107)
  • Difficulty: 3/10
  • Note: This one I actually recommend *not* following the road. When I get to the intersection I usually continue straight and go off-road. The hill is sloped rather steep to one side but there are relatively few obstacles. 

Sequoia Forest Escape:

  • West Coast (Northeast of LA)
  • Money: $1875
  • Vehicle Tested: BMW R1200GS Adventure (Rally Raid) (PL 107)
  • Difficulty: 1/10
  • Note: Not a straight road but still fairly easy to follow to get the minimum distance. 

Big Sur Slalom:

  • West Coast (North of LA)
  • Money: $1875
  • Vehicle Tested: BMW R1200GS Adventure (Rally Raid) (PL 107)
  • Difficulty: 2/10
  • Note: Not a straight line, but pretty easy. You can drive right through the hedges if need be. 

High Sierra Escape:

  • West Coast (East of San Francisco)
  • Money: $1875
  • Vehicle Tested: BMW R1200GS Adventure (Rally Raid) (PL 108)
  • Difficulty: 2/10
  • Note: I personally don't try to jump over the switchbacks -- an important thing to note for these is that the distance counter counts distance driven, not distance from the origin point. While it's better to drive away from the center, if you drive horizontally it counts toward your score too. 

Shasta Cascade Slalom:

  • West Coast (South of Seattle)
  • Money: $1875
  • Vehicle Tested: BMW R1200GS Adventure (Rally Raid) (PL 108)
  • Difficulty: 3/10
  • Note: There are a few here that are not clearly marked with pylons, you just have to find the arrows.

Street Racing Escapes



I'm doing most of these in a Silverado because it's my lowest-rated street racing vehicle at the moment.

Stormdrain Escape:

  • Los Angeles 
  • Money: $1875 
  • Vehicle Tested: Chevy Silverado 1500 (SR) (PL 174) 
  • Difficulty: 2/10 
  • Note: Avoid the water, it'll slow you down despite how shallow it is. This one is straightforward, literally. The first real turn occurs around the minimum distance. 

Downtown LA Escape:

  • Los Angeles 
  • Money: $1875 
  • Vehicle Tested: Chevy Silverado 1500 (SR) (PL 174) 
  • Difficulty: 4/10 
  • Note: This one orients you in a weird direction to begin with. It's tough to find a straight line but you can find a pretty easy path-of-least-resistance to achieve minimum distance. You'll have to get more creative to exceed the minimum by a significant amount. 

Las Vegas Escape:

  • Las Vegas 
  • Money: $1875 
  • Vehicle Tested: Chevy Silverado 1500 (SR) (PL 174) 
  • Difficulty: 6/10 
  • Note: Not very easy on the path they put you on by default. Turning around isn't a bad idea. I recommend getting on the road that runs parallel to yours (but on the left side) as soon as possible if you're not going to turn around. 

Jackson Hole Valley Escape:

  • Mountain States (Northeast of Salt Lake City) 
  • Money: $1875 
  • Vehicle Tested: Chevy Silverado 1500 (SR) (PL 174) 
  • Difficulty: 3/10 
  • Note: Turn around if you want a straighter path, but the good news is that you don't have to go very far down the windy roads to achieve minimum distance. 

Pikes Peak Escape:

  • Midwest (Southwest of Chicago) 
  • Money: $1875 
  • Vehicle Tested: Chevy Silverado 1500 (SR) (PL 174) 
  • Difficulty: 4/10 
  • Note: The Silverado kinda sucks for this one because you can only improve its handling so much, but if you have something that can turn, you should be able to achieve minimum distance before hitting the switchback on the other side of the mountain. I think Ubi was a bit generous with the circle on this one. 

Uptown Escape:

  • New York (Central Park) 
  • Money: $1875 
  • Vehicle Tested: Chevy Silverado 1500 (SR) (PL 174) 
  • Difficulty: 2/10 
  • Note: Immediately to the left of the start point is a gate you can smash through to get onto a relatively straight road. Do that and your biggest problem will be traffic. 

Financial District Escape:

  • New York 
  • Money: $1875 
  • Vehicle Tested: Chevy Silverado 1500 (SR) (PL 174) 
  • Difficulty: 2/10 
  • Note: Turning around is a good idea, but you can also continue straight and cut through a plaza at the end of the street to get to another relatively straight street. 

Keys Escape:

  • The South (Southern Florida) 
  • Money: $1875 
  • Vehicle Tested: Chevy Silverado 1500 (SR) (PL 174) 
  • Difficulty: 2/10 
  • Note: Going the default direction and turning around are equally easy. The only reason this isn't a 1/10 is that high speeds can make it difficult to dodge between traffic on the two-lane road if there's a lot of cars.
