In Daredevil, the player competes as a single playable character on the race track without any teammates to race with or rivals to race against. Here, the player has to skim past the giant Star Posts that are placed along the track. By doing so, the player will earn points that will increase their score. The player's objective is to score as many points as possible within a certain time limit. This time limit is indicated by the timer and gauge at the top of the screen that appears during the Daredevil Event. As the timer decreases, the gauge will deplete. When the time is about to run out, the gauge will turn from turquoise to orange, and then red. Should the gauge empty completely, the player will run out of time and the Event will end.
In Daredevil Events, the Star Posts have a yellow and red arch highlighted on each side. Passing through either arch will grant up to 50 points depending on the character's proximity to the post; driving closer to the post upon passing through the arch grants more points. Hitting the Star Posts does not grant any points. In addition, drifting through an arch will grant an extra 20 bonus points. If the player passes through the red arch, the score multiplier increases by 0.1 for a limited time each time the player skims past the red arch of the Star Post before the previous point multiplier effect wears off (not counting the first one). However, the score multipler rate is capped at 1.5 and any further attempts to raise the point multiplier will only maintain the 1.5 point multiplier. Also, should the point multipler wear off, it will reset itself back to 1.0.
The Daredevil Events feature point milestones that indicate how well the player has performed. By collecting enough points, the player will be rewarded with a specific type of medal after the Event. The more points the player gathers, the better the medal they will receive. The fourth-highest medal the player can receive is bronze, the third-highest is silver, the second-highest is gold, and the highest is platinum.
To complete a Daredevil Event, the player has to either run out of time or earn a platinum medal.
