Whenever you complete any activity in The Crew you are going to be awarded with perks. You may feel that they are useless and rightly so as some of the ones provided early on are not worth it. The first few ones will offer you discounts and may be an increase in performance of several car parameters by just a few percentage. But as you start earning more and more perks, you will be offered massive discounts and in car and improvements in performance parameters. So keep heading back to your head quarters so that you can keep track of them.
All Wreck Parts Locations:
There are 20 Wreck Parts in the Midwest area of The Crew. If you find all of them you will be able to unlock the hidden “Hotrod HuP One” car. If you want to collect all of them you need to explore the entire map which will take a lot of time since the world is massive. The wreck parts will show up as blinking icons on the mini map on the player’s hud. Once you get closer to the blinking icon, the beeping sound will get faster. Once you find all the wreck parts, return to your headquarters and unlock your vehicles. This will also unlock the Scrap Salvager achievement/trophy.
How To Make Money Faster:
This is one of the easiest ways to make money faster in The Crew. You can visit landmarks which have been highlighted in the map. On discovering each you can earn $2000. The fast travelling option makes this real easier.
Another way to earn more money is to Rinse & Repeat ‘THE GETAWAY’ which is a story mission in The Crew.
Another Money Cheat And Fastest Way To Gain Experience Points (XP):
If the cops spawn right behind you, then you need to drive right at the centre of the road. Then you will outrun them.
