Another year passed means another great list of video games worth playing on PC, PlayStation, Xbox, Switch, Stadia, and more. To look back on the year that was in video games, we've collected our highest-reviewed games of 2021 into a "best of" list. 

Since we're a small staff at GameSkinny, going the traditional "staff voting route" doesn't really make a whole lot of sense. Though it means there are more games here than on other lists, the best way we've found to highlight the best games of the year in 2021 is to include any game with a score of "8" or higher. So that's what we've done here. 

A few games on this list didn't technically release in 2021 or perhaps have other editions that released in years prior, but we reviewed certain versions and ports that released in 2021, so we've decided to also include them here.

Forza Horizon 5: Where to Find and Smash Solar Panels https://www.gameskinny.com/54adv/forza-horizon-5-where-to-find-and-smash-solar-panels https://www.gameskinny.com/54adv/forza-horizon-5-where-to-find-and-smash-solar-panels Wed, 01 Dec 2021 14:06:24 -0500 Michael Feghali

In this week's series of Forzathon challenges in Forza Horizon 5, players will need to find and smash solar panels in order to earn those precious Forzathon points. Of course, you're here because you're wondering where to find these solar panels. Read on. 

The “Shocking” challenge asks you to smash 20 solar panels in under 30 seconds. While this isn’t necessarily a difficult challenge, it still may be tricky to find solar panels if you don’t know where to look. In this guide, we will show you where to find and smash solar panels in Forza Horizon 5.

Where to Find Solar Panels to Smash in Forza Horizon 5

The best location in which to smash solar panels in the base game is just southeast of the main Horizon Festival location, near the Casa Bella house.

You should look for the area with small rectangular dots, as seen in the map image above. There you will find a solar farm of over 80 panels conveniently placed and waiting to be smashed.

From there, just drive into as many panels as you can until the challenge is complete. 

Destroying Solar Panels in Custom Races

In Forza Horizon 5, challenges can be also completed in custom races, which makes things a whole lot easier. This means you can enter a short custom race filled with solar panels and start destroying them. Thankfully, other players and members of the community have been quick to create these races for everyone to benefit from.

To enter custom races, go over to the Creative Hub tab from the pause menu, and select Eventlab. Then, select Event Blueprints and press the search button to filter through the different races. 

Go all the way down to the "Share Code” filter and enter the following code: 423 189 237. Now all you have to do is choose a car and start the event. In order to complete the "Shocking" challenge, you can simply drive forward into the solar panels as fast as you can until you reach the finish line.

You could also use the filters to search for other tracks containing the word "Solar", which returns a list of good custom races to try. 

After completing this challenge, you will be awarded 20 Forzathon Points to spend on new cars, wheelspins, and more.

Forza Horizon 5 Best Rally Cars https://www.gameskinny.com/1139e/forza-horizon-5-best-rally-cars https://www.gameskinny.com/1139e/forza-horizon-5-best-rally-cars Mon, 22 Nov 2021 12:44:51 -0500 Sergey_3847

Rally racing is one of the most challenging types of races in Forza Horizon 5. You need a special vehicle that can perform equally well on all types of surfaces, and at the same time provide you with strong acceleration, handling, steering, and braking.

This guide will list the best rally cars in Forza Horizon 5. Typically rally cars are not very expensive, but their tuning can get really costly. That's why it's important to pick a car that has already been pre-tuned for rally races, and you will find their best variants right down below.

Best Rally Cars in Forza Horizon 5

Hoonigan Ford RS200 Evolution

  • Price: 500,000 CR

Ford RS200 is objectively the best rally vehicle in Forza Horizon 5. It has modified suspension with shock absorbers, as well as custom wheels that perform equally well on all types of terrain.

It's also lightweight at only 1.1K kg, which makes it super maneuverable and easy to steer. But its biggest advantage is the immense acceleration that can easily overcome any other dirt rally competitor.

Ford Racing Puma Forza Edition

  • Price: 500,000 CR

The original name of the model was Puma RS, which shows its allegiance to the class of top-tier Ford rally vehicles.

It is important to note that only Forza Edition is truly eligible for competitive rally races, but you need to have VIP Membership pack in order to unlock it.

Puma performs pretty much on par with RS200 with the only difference of Puma having slightly improved braking, but downgraded speed.

Porsche 911 GT3 RS Forza Edition

  • Price: 255,000 CR

Porsche 911 is a legendary sports car that has been improved for the Forza Edition variant. It has a more powerful engine than its predecessor with the acceleration being especially boosted.

You can get this car only as a reward for completing the entire Porsche car collection. This means that you will need to unlock all 30 models that are currently available in Forza Horizon 5 before you can sit behind its steering wheel.

Hoonigan Gymkhana 10 Ford Focus RS RX

  • Price: 500,000 CR

This is an improved version of one of the best rallycross cars from Ford. It is an all-wheel drive vehicle that engages all four wheels, which is necessary for certain types of terrain.

Focus RS RX has an exceptional acceleration that outperforms even some of the best hypercars in the game. You can unlock this car by completing the "Hoarder" accolade.

Hoonigan Gymkhana 10 Ford Escort Cosworth

  • Price: 500,000 CR

What makes the pre-tuned Ford Escort Cosworth really special is the 2.0L Turbocharged I4 engine. Its usual output of 224 BHP has been improved to as much as 620 BHP.

This and other improvements allow this car to show some excellent handling on any type of surfaces. It is almost equal in its performance to Ford Focus RS RX, and you can easily purchase it from the Autoshow.

Honda Civic Coupe GRC

  • Price: 155,000 CR

GRC is a pre-tuned rally variant of the Honda Civic Type R model. Just like Ford Escort, this version has an improved 2.0L Turbocharged I4 engine with a power output increased from 306 BHP to 600 BHP.

The high performance of the car is hidden in its all-wheel drivetrain, as well as special aerodynamic design of the body. This unique rally variant of Honda can be purchased only from the Forzathon shop for 400 FP.

Ford Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing GRC Fiesta

  • Price: 500,000 CR

What makes GRC Fiesta really unique is that Ford designed it specifically for the Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing team, and there is no equivalent car in any of the Forza series games.

It has exactly the same rate of performance as both Ford Escort Cosworth and Honda Civic Coupe GRC, but it cannot be purchased or unlocked. The only way to get this car in Forza Horizon 5 is to win it through a Wheelspin.

Volkswagen Andretti Rallycross Beetle

  • Price: 500,000 CR

This special variant of the rallycross Volkswagen Beetle is based on the 2011 model of the original Beetle, which is not available in Forza Horizon 5. You can only get the very first Beetle from 1963.

But the rally variant is really good and it is worth getting for its improved 2.0L Turbocharged I4 engine and all-wheel drivetrain. Also, you can pruchase it from the Autoshow without any hassle.

Hoonigan Ford Escort RS1800

  • Price: 300,000 CR

Ford Escort RS1800 is a predecessor of the Ford Escort Cosworth model, where the engine and the body had been slightly improved for the newer generation.

But there is a certain charm to the old RS1800, as it has one of the more recognizable external designs of all cars on this list. It has a slightly heavier front body, which gives it powerful acceleration, and a rear-wheel drivetrain, which can also be used in the drift zones.

MG Metro 6R4

  • Price: 125,000 CR

Here is another car with an entirely unique body structure and 24-valve naturally-aspirated V6 engine. This gives it an outstanding acceleration, which allows this car to pull itself out of any corner with a solid throttle.

The wider tires make it a bit harder to handle, but overall it's a realtively cheap rally car that can compete on par with other vehicles on our list. You can unlock MG Metro 6R4 by completing the "Rudos" accolade.

Ford M-Sport Fiesta RS

  • Price: 500,000 CR

This is a variant of the Hoonigan Gymkhana 10 Ford Fiesta ST, which was featured only in Forza Horizon 4, and is currently not available in Forza Horizon 5.

But both cars feature exactly the same parameters and both are all-wheel drive rallycross vehicles. The only difference is that Ford Fiesta ST has better handling and braking systems, while M-Sport Fiesta RS has a slightly higher top speed.

You can unlock this model by completing the "Lucha de Carreteras!" accolade.

Ariel Atom 500 V8

  • Price: 200,000 CR

Ariel is an offroad buggy that is perfect for rally races due to its super light weight of only 650 kg. It has a powerful 3.0L Naturally-Aspirated V8 engine and some amazing acceleration.

Atom 500 boasts with highly responsive steering and strong brakes. If you don't want to spend this much money, then you can opt for Ariel Nomad model, which is much cheaper.

Exomotive Exocet Off-Road Forza Edition

  • Price: 500,000 CR

This is another off-road buggy that is slightly heavier than Ariel models, but arguably performs even better due to the enhanced acceleration of the Forza Edition, which can be unlocked only through Wheelspin prizes.

It is based on two Mazda vehicles with an upgraded turbo engine, oversized tires, and steel tube chassis.

Porsche Prodrive Rally Raid

  • Price: 1,500,000 CR

Porsche Prodrive is the most expensive rally car on our list, but it is only expensive due to its historical value. The original car was the winner of the Paris-Dakar rally race, which took place in 1986.

It performs really well for an all-wheel drive rear-engined vehicle, and you can unlock it by completing the "Property Purchase, Great Success" accolade.

Forza Horizon 5: How to Farm Credits Fast https://www.gameskinny.com/jzw29/forza-horizon-5-how-to-farm-credits-fast https://www.gameskinny.com/jzw29/forza-horizon-5-how-to-farm-credits-fast Fri, 19 Nov 2021 12:52:31 -0500 Michael Feghali

Money makes the world go round, even in Forza Horizon 5. You'll need loads of credits during your time with the game. Forza Horizon 5 certainly generous enough for most but if you want to build your collection of cars up quickly, you are probably going to want to farm credits for a while.

Flip Cars in The Auction House

The Auction House is a great way to make some easy money by buying and selling cars for a profit. The key is to look up a popular car manufacturer and find the minimum buyout price for some of their cars.

In this case, Lamborghini cars work really well as they are in high demand. Ferrari cars are equally as good for buying and selling.

At the moment, the Lamborghini Urus generally sells for at least 200,000 credits whereas the LM 002 sells for 100,000. So, just start bidding on auction listings that go for much less than that and are expiring soon.

You will usually get outbid but keep raising your bid as long as it's significantly lower than the car’s market price. Using this method, I managed to pick up an Urus for 87,000 credits and an LM 002 for 50,000.

After listing the cars in the Auction House, I was able to sell them for twice what I bought them for within 10 minutes. Just make sure to claim your credits after selling the cars as they will disappear after 60 days.

There is a small fee for selling items in the Auction House so make sure to account for that when doing this method.

Spend Your Skill Points on Perks

Using your Skill Points to buy certain perks is one of the best ways to get money without putting in any effort.

While most perks give bonuses to skill points and multipliers, some perks also award you with free credits and wheelspins. This can be repeated a bunch of times as each car has its own skill tree with a credit and wheelspin perk.

To find out how to earn Skill Points fast, you can check out our guide here.

Redeem Your Unlocked Wheelspins

If you've already spent a few hours playing Forza Horizon 5, you'll almost certainly have earned some wheelspins. These give you a chance at earning new cars, accessories, and most importantly credits.

Wheelspins can be earned by leveling up and playing the game as you normally would, which makes them an easy extra source of money.

With these methods, you should be able to farm credits and buy that shiny new car in no time. For more tips and tricks, be sure to check out our other Forza Horizon 5 guides.

Forza Horizon 5 Best Drift Cars https://www.gameskinny.com/zvwtm/forza-horizon-5-best-drift-cars https://www.gameskinny.com/zvwtm/forza-horizon-5-best-drift-cars Mon, 22 Nov 2021 10:45:18 -0500 Sergey_3847

The best drift cars in Forza Horizon 5 bring driving into its full state as an art form, demanding a particular skillset from drivers with their rear-wheel drive and reliable handling and braking systems.

It's no surprise that Japanese cars are the best at this type of races. But there are also many other cars that can compete on the same level. Once you obtain one of these vehicles, you can start earning skill points at special drift zones.

Best Drift Cars in Forza Horizon 5

Toyota GR Supra

  • Price: 300,000 CR

Forza Horizon 5 offers players who wish to focus on drifting a special Formula Drift Pack DLC, which includes a brand-new car for the Forza series: the Toyota GR Supra.

This high-performance drift vehicle is heavily modified to be the best drift car in the game, adding a turbocharger, dual wastegates, valve trains, and fully reworked 3.0L engine.

Toyota GR Supra has the best handling among any rear-wheel drive car and special tires for the best results.

Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano

  • Price: 500,000 CR

Fiorano is the heaviest drift car in Forza Horizon 5, which is not a bad thing at all. Since it has front engine and rear transaxle, its weight distribution is mostly balanced and gives the car an almost perfect equilibrium when drifting.

Drifting in this car is pure pleasure, and you can simply buy it from the Autoshow. So, if you want a highly specialized drift car without the need to purchase the Formula Drift Pack DLC or Car Pass, then Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano would be the best choice.

Chevrolet Corvette (#777)

  • Price: 300,000 CR

There are about a dozen Chevrolet Corvette variants in Forza Horizon 5, but this 2013 version has been modified specifically for drifting. It loses in speed to Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano, but when it comes to handling and braking it definitely holds better.

In this case you need to try it out in the drift zone and compare their stats. If you like faster cars, then Fiorano is probably a better choice, but some players prefer accuracy, and that's where Corvette really shines.

Toyota Supra MkIV

  • Price: 300,000 CR

This is the second Toyota drift car on our list, which is also the part of the Formula Drift Pack DLC, just like GR Supra.

The difference between the two cars is that Supra MkIV is much faster than GR Supra. MkIV can reach the top speed of 334 km/h or 208 m/h, while GR has the maximum speed of only 271 km/h or 168 m/h.

GR model has a better handling and thus drifting can be performed with higher precision. But with MkIV you can also take on other types of races with a high chance of winning.

Nissan 370Z

  • Price: 300,000 CR

What really makes this drift car stand out is the 4.0L Twin-Turbocharged V6 engine. Most players prefer cars with the V8 engines due to their speed, but V6 engines offer better handling and stability, which is essential for all drifters.

You can unlock this car by completing the "Moar Skillz!" accolade, or simply buy it from the Autoshow.

Toyota Corolla Hatchback

  • Price: 300,000 CR

Toyota Corolla falls somewhere in between the Supra MkIV and GR Supra models. It is the third Toyota drift car that is a part of the Formula Drift Pack DLC.

If you can't choose between the other two Toyota vehicles for drifting, then pick this one up, as it has both speed and handling well balanced due to the use of 2.7L Turbocharged I4 engine that is typically used in Ferrari cars.

BMW M2

  • Price: 300,000 CR

There are two versions of BMW M2 in Forza Horizon 5: the coupe variant and the drift variant. Both can be used for drifting as both are rear-wheel drive vehicles, but the drift version can be acquired only through Car Pass or Formula Drift Pack.

The coupe variant is based on the 3.0L Twin-Turbocharged I6 engine, while the drift variant uses the 6.2L Naturally-Aspirated V8 (LS7), which is twice as powerful. But you can always purchase the coupe version for 60K credits and upgrade it, if you can't buy the DLC.

DeBerti Toyota Tacoma TRD

  • Price: 500,000 CR

Here is the first and the only drift pickup truck on our list. It is called DeBerti after the name of the author of the car's design, and it is quite a vehicle.

It is equipped with the NASCAR V8 engine and it can easily compete with other drift cars with lesser weight.

The reason why you should consider Tacoma TRD for your drifting races is that you can perform much better on offroad drift zones than any other coupe model.

Chevrolet Corvette Z06

  • Price: 300,000 CR

Currently, there are three variants of Chevrolet Corvette Z06 in Forza Horizon 5: the 2002 sports car, the 2015 front-engine supercar, and the 2017 high-performance drift car.

The 2002 version is good but it is better to get the 2015 variant, which is significantly improved, while the 2017 version requires a DLC.

But all three cars are very much capable of getting the drifting right, as all of them are rear-wheel drive cars.

Ford Mustang RTR

  • Price: 500,000 CR

There are many different versions of Ford Mustang as well. The GT variant is mostly a sports car made for racing, while the RTR model does especially well in the drifts.

The original RTR is a better pick than the RTR Spec 5, which is cheaper to buy, but you also get a downgraded version of the V8 engine with it. The RTR drift variant will cost you 500K, but you get a complete pre-tuned package for drifting right off the Autoshow.

Mazda RX-8

  • Price: 300,000 CR

Mazda drift vehicle, which is included in the Formula Drift Pack, has a special 2.0L Turbocharged 3-Rotor Rotary engine, which is boosted by the Nitrous Express system capable of giving the car a shot of nitrous. This gives a short but effective boost of extra 70 horsepowers to the 1000 BHP engine.

If you don't want to buy the DLC, then you can pick the Mazda RX-8 R3 model, which is a lot cheaper and has a rear-wheel drive suitable for drifting.

Dodge Viper SRT10

  • Price: 300,000 CR

The original 2003 Dodge Viper SRT10 from Forza Horizon 4 was not included in the fifth installment of the game. Instead the developer added the 2008 SRT ACR variant and the pre-tuned 2006 drift version, which can be obtained by completing the "Drift Royalty" accolade.

Both cars perform really well, but the 2006 variant has the Twin-Turbocharged V10 engine, which is more powerful than the Naturally-Aspirated version of the ACR model.

Nissan 240SX

  • Price: 300,000 CR

Here is another Japanese car that comes in two different variants: the 1993 SE variant and the 1997 pre-tuned drift version.

The SE version costs only 25K, but it is already proclaimed as the "symbol of the power of the drift movement". On the other hand, the 1997 variant can be earned by completing the "Plot Thickens" accolade, which will cost you nothing if done right. Of course, the 1997 drift version is superior to SE.

Forza Horizon 5: How to Farm Skill Points https://www.gameskinny.com/9025m/forza-horizon-5-how-to-farm-skill-points https://www.gameskinny.com/9025m/forza-horizon-5-how-to-farm-skill-points Fri, 19 Nov 2021 10:18:28 -0500 Michael Feghali

You'll want to farm Skill Points in Forza Horizon 5, particularly to unlock special perks for bonus XP, extra credits, and more. In this guide we'll go over how to farm Skill Points efficiently, so you don't have to put too much time into the effort.

To gain Skill Points, you'll need to build a Skill Chain by performing tricks in quick succession without crashing. Some of these tricks include drifting, near misses, wrecking objects, and speeding. As you perform tricks, you’ll notice your score and multiplier increasing at the top of your screen.

While not necessary, using cars that have a 7x Skill Point multiplier will definitely speed up the process. Some of the best cars to farm Skill Points with are the Formula Drift cars and Hoonigan RS200.

Additionally, make sure to keep your radio on and listen for skill songs that let you earn a score multiplier of up to ×10.0.

How to Farm Skill Points in Forza Horizon 5

One of the easiest ways to farm Skill Points would be to find a relatively open field and just drift as much as you can while destroying small trees and cacti. By doing this, you can easily earn high scores from drifting and wreckage tricks alone. Since these spaces are usually empty, it is almost impossible to crash and lose your score and multiplier.

Another method that works well is driving on any of the main highways while going as fast as you can. The trick is to drive at max speed while also accumulating near misses whenever possible. This can be done by intentionally getting close to other cars and objects while zooming past them.

Once you reach the end of the highway, pull a drift to perform a U-turn and drive back the way you came. This will keep your Skill Chain alive and let you continue earning points. Also if you find a nice open spot while driving along the highway, you can seamlessly switch to the first method and continue earning those Skill Points.

If you already have some Skill Points to spare make sure to spend them on perks that award better scores and multipliers for the tricks you are performing.

Doing this will definitely be worth it in the long run and make earning Skill Points noticeably easier. In addition, the ‘Extra Life’ perk is a no-brainer as it will let you keep your Skill Chain going even after your first collision. However, it is the most expensive perk in the game and costs a whopping 25 Skill Points. Still, it may be worth getting if you find yourself constantly crashing into things and losing all your points.

You’ll earn one skill point for every score of 50,000 and a single Skill Chain can grant you up to 10 points. So you should be aiming for around a total score of 500,000 every time before stopping your car and banking those points.

By repeating these methods, you'll be able to earn those precious Skill Points in no time. For more Forza Horizon 5 tips and tricks, check out our dedicated guides page.

Forza Horizon 5 Fastest Cars Guide List https://www.gameskinny.com/1r1un/forza-horizon-5-fastest-cars-guide-list https://www.gameskinny.com/1r1un/forza-horizon-5-fastest-cars-guide-list Fri, 19 Nov 2021 12:25:10 -0500 Sergey_3847

The fastest cars in Forza Horizon 5 can meet speeds that players can only dream of at the start of the game, and the extreme speeds they can reach can be a boon whether on the road or off.

This list includes only the cars that can go over 400 km/h or 250 m/h, which is the minimum for extreme track racing. The top speed parameters below indicate the performance of each vehicle in their vanilla versions, without being tuned. 

Of course, you can boost the speed of these cars even further by tuning them in the in-game garage.

Fastest Cars in Forza Horizon 5

Koenigsegg Jesko

  • Top Speed: 488 km/h; 303 m/h
  • Price: 2,800,000 CR

The Jesko model of the Swedish manufacturer Koenigsegg was first introduced in Forza Horizon 4. But the same model got some serious boost to its speed in Forza Horizon 5, and now it can reach up to almost 500 km/h if unobstructed.

The car is based on 5.0L Twin-Turbocharged V8 engine with rear-wheel drive and 9-speed transmission, which is absolutely necessary for longer acceleration times, as reaching this kind of speed takes time.

You can unlock this car in Forza Horizon 5 by completing the "Cinema Irrealiste" accolade.

Koenigsegg Agera RS

  • Top Speed: 443 km/h; 275 m/h
  • Price: 2,000,000 CR

Koenigsegg Agera RS is not only one of the fastest cars in Forza Horizon 5, but it is also the actual world record holder among top speed commercially available vehicles in real life.

It is based on 5.0L Twin-Turbocharged V8 engine with rear-wheel drive and 7-speed transmission. This car can reach 100 km/h in just 2.8 seconds, and it can be purchased from the Autoshow.

Koenigsegg One:1

  • Top Speed: 440 km/h; 273 m/h
  • Price: 2,800,000 CR

Many players will know this model from the previous installments of the Forza series, as it has been present in the game since Forza Motorsport 6 (2015). Since then its speed limits have been consistently growing, and now it is marked as the third fastest vehicle in Forza Horizon 5.

Koenigsegg One:1 utilizes 5.0L Twin-Turbocharged V8 engine with rear-wheel drive and 7-speed transmission. Among all top speed cars in the game, this model also has the best braking system.

McLaren Speedtail

  • Top Speed: 436 km/h; 271 m/h
  • Price: 2,250,000 CR

Speedtail is McLaren's, the famous Formula 1 manufacturer, fastest commercially available car.

What's really interesting about this car is that it uses the 4.0L Twin-Turbocharged Hybrid V8 engine, which is half-electric, producing 1036 BHP. This also makes Speedtail the fastest accelerating McLaren vehicle in their entire hypercar line.

Hennessey Venom GT

  • Top Speed: 435 km/h; 270 m/h
  • Price: 1,200,000 CR

Here is one of the more affordable top speedsters on our list. It is also one of the lightest sportscars in the game at only 1.2K kg. This allows Hennessey Venom GT to reach those remarkable speed limits that break even such famous manufacturers like Bugatti and Ferrari.

This American hypercar is built on 6.2L Twin-Turbocharged V8 engine with rear-wheel drive and 6-speed Transmission.

Bugatti Chiron

  • Top Speed: 433 km/h; 269 m/h
  • Price: 2,400,000 CR

Although Koenigsegg cars are considered the fastest in Forza Horizon 5, Bugatti Chiron can get a serious advantage in the races due to its much faster acceleration. It takes some time for Koenigsegg vehicles to get to their top speed limits, but Chiron does it in almost an instant.

The car is built on 8.0L Quad-Turbocharged W16 engine with all-wheel drive and 7-speed transmission, and it is available for purchase via Autoshow.

Bugatti Veyron Super Sport

  • Top Speed: 430 km/h; 267 m/h
  • Price: 2,200,000 CR

Bugatti Veyron could have been up there alongside Koenigsegg cars, as one of the top speed choices in Forza Horizon 5, but due to its heavy weight it loses a bit in both speed and handling.

It is based on the same 8.0L Quad-Turbocharged W16 engine as Bugatti Chiron, and it can be unlocked by completing the "Like a Boss" accolade.

Zenvo TSR-S

  • Top Speed: 426 km/h; 265 m/h
  • Price: 1,200,000 CR

The Danish supercar Zenvo boasts with an innovative aerodynamic design that allows it to reach maximum speed wihout a significant torque.

The formula of success is in the design of the car's body that involves a front splitter, a rear diffuser, an air scoop, and most importantly, the centripetal wing. This design in conjunction with 5.8L Supercharged V8 engine really gives this car a serious boost to its top speed limit.

Bugatti Divo

  • Top Speed: 422 km/h; 262 m/h
  • Price: 3,000,000 CR

This high-concept car from Bugatti is based on another one of their concept models, which is Bugatti Chiron. This one is built on 8.0L Quad-Turbocharged W16 engine with all-wheel drive and 7-speed transmission.

Bugatti Divo can reach 100 km/h in 2.4 seconds, which is faster than Koenigsegg Agera RS and many other hypercars in Forza Horizon 5. Its only drawback is that it is one of the more expensive cars in this category.

Rimac Concept Two

  • Top Speed: 420 km/h; 261 m/h
  • Price: 2,000,000 CR

Rimac is the fastest car among all the electric cars in Forza Horizon 5. It is based on Electric4 liquid-cooled motors with all-wheel drive and only 2-speed transmission.

Rimac Concept Two has a tremendous acceleration that allows it to reach 100 km/h in just 1.8 seconds, which is unbelievably fast. Luckily, you can purchase this car on Autoshow for a decent price.

Hoonigan Ford "Hoonicorn" Mustang

  • Top Speed: 418 km/h; 260 m/h
  • Price: 500,000 CR

Hoonicorn is the cheapest car on our list, but don't underestimate its power, as it is also one of the fastest cars in the game.

With a powerful 6.7L Twin-Turbocharged V8 engine it can produce 1400 BHP, which allows it to perform well in both drift racing and straight-line racing.

If you're looking for a more affordable car in the 400+ km/h range of vehicles, then Hoonicorn offers a great deal.

McLaren P1

  • Top Speed: 407 km/h; 253 m/h
  • Price: 1,350,000 CR

Often called a heavier but faster version fo Ferrari LaFerrari, McLaren P1 is another hybrid supercar that can race against the fastest cars in Forza Horizon 5.

This vehicle utilizes two engines: 3.8L Naturally-Aspirated V8 and an additional electric engine with 903 BHP.

If you played Forza Motorsport 5 prior to purchasing Forza Horizon 5, then you can get McLaren P1 for free as a loyalty reward.

Koenigsegg Regera

  • Top Speed: 400 km/h; 250 m/h
  • Price: 1,900,000 CR

The last car on our list that can reach 400 km/h without any additional tuning is another Koenigsegg hypercar.

Just like McLaren models, this one is also based on hybrid engine design, involving 5.0L Naturally-Aspirated V8 engine and three YASA-developed electric motors.

Koenigsegg Regera can be unlocked after completing the "Completionist" accolade.

Forza Horizon 5 Rarest Cars and How to Unlock Them https://www.gameskinny.com/j5bsz/forza-horizon-5-rarest-cars-and-how-to-unlock-them https://www.gameskinny.com/j5bsz/forza-horizon-5-rarest-cars-and-how-to-unlock-them Thu, 18 Nov 2021 11:31:49 -0500 Sergey_3847

The rarest cars in Forza Horizon 5 are on every collector's to-do list, and they're as difficult to get as you might imagine. There are several vehicles in the game that cost gargantuan amounts of money, but they cannot be simply purchased on Autoshow or Auction.

This guide will list some of the rarest cars in Forza Horizon 5, and explain how to unlock them all. A few of these cars can be really hard to get due to the nature of their rewards, but since they are highly valuable on the market, completionists will want to put all the effort to get them.

The Rarest Cars in Forza Horizon 5

Ferrari 250 GTO

Forza Horizon 5 Ferraria 250 GTO

The rarest car in Forza Horizon 5 is also the most expensive vehicle in the game at 50 million credits. It's not surprising at all, since this car cannot be purchased or acquired in any other way except finding it in the wilderness of Mexico.

You will find Ferrari 250 GTO on the eastern coast inside a barn located in the Los Jardines (see the marker on the map above for the exact location of the barn). Fortunately, there is also a fast travel point nearby, so you will have no trouble getting there.

Mercedes-Benz W154

Forza Horizon 5 Mercedes-Benz W154

This pre-war German racing car is a real gem for all the fans of vintage vehicles. Although it can't compare to the more recent models in terms of speed and other parameters, it is still one of the rarest and most unique cars in Forza Horizon 5.

There is only one way to get this car, and that is to complete the entire Mercedes-Benz car collection. This means that you need to collect all 23 Mercedes-Benz vehicles that are available in the game in order to unlock the W154 model.

Ford GT40 Mk I

Forza Horizon 5 Fored GT40 MK I

Here is another vintage race car, which was produced in the USA in 1964. The same rule applies here, and you need to collect all 58 Ford vehicles in order to receive GT40 Mk I as an achievement reward.

That's a lot of cars and it may take you a while before you get them all. If you're asking yourself if any of this is worth it, then consider the price tag of GT40 Mk I in Forza Horizon 5, which is 11 million credits, and that is a lot of money. As always, you can sell it later on through Auction House.

Ferrari F40 Competizione

Forza Horizon 5 Competizione

Watch out for another extremely rare Ferrari model that is hidden inside a barn at the southeastern coast of Mexico.

You will have to drive to the Pantano de la Selva location and follow to the spot indicated by the marker on the map above, or fast travel to Tulum location and drive in the western direction until you reach the needed spot.

In any case, Ferrari F40 needs to be in the garage of any racing car connoisseur, so go and grab that doll of a car.

Ferrari LaFerrari

Forza Horizon 5 LaFerrari

Besides the two models hidden in the barns, Ferrari also has its own car collector reward in the form of Ferrari LaFerrari. In order to unlock this unique car you need to collect all 26 Ferrari cars that are available in Forza Horizon 5.

You can purchase most of these cars on the Autoshow, and three of them you can win by completing the following accolades:

  • Wheels of Experience (Ferrari 360 Challenge Stradale)
  • A Class Elite (Ferrari 430 Scuderia)
  • Fastest Photographer in Mexico (Ferrari GTC4Lusso)

Lamborghini Reventon

Forza Horizon 5 Reventon

The last car collector reward vehicle on our list is Lamborghini Reventon. Fortunately, there aren't that many cars to collect as in the case with Ford or Ferrari. You will have to get hold of 16 Lamborghini vehicles in order to unlock this car.

Once again, most of the Lamborghini models can be purchased via Autoshow, and two cars can be unlocked by completing the following accolades:

  • Eliminating Spree (Lamborghini Aventador Superveloce)
  • Rampage (Lamborghini Urus)

Lamborghini Diablo GTR

Forza Horizon 5 Diablo GTR

Although there aren't that many cars in the Lamborghini collection, the Diablo GTR model cannot be purchased or unlocked during accolades. But you still need it, if you want to unlock the Reventon model mentioned above.

You can unlock Lamborghini Diablo GTR only through the car mastery perk for Lamborghini Diablo SV. Follow these steps to unlock it:

  1. Go to "Cars" menu
  2. Select "Car Mastery" tab
  3. Select Lamborghini Diablo SV skill tree
  4. Unlock car mastery perks until you get Diablo GTR

You can unlock car mastery perks using skill points that can be earned via Skill Chains, which are acquired by completing a series of speed tricks on the road while driving.

Forza Horizon 5 Best Cars https://www.gameskinny.com/9nmem/forza-horizon-5-best-cars https://www.gameskinny.com/9nmem/forza-horizon-5-best-cars Wed, 17 Nov 2021 10:57:57 -0500 Sergey_3847

The best cars in Forza Horizon 5 don't necessarily have to be entirely focused on speed. It's the balance of speed, acceleration, handling, and braking that makes any car truly great. This guide will list all the best cars in Forza Horizon 5 with all these parameters in mind.

Obviously, most of these cars are super expensive and some cannot simply be purchased from the Autoshow. Among over 500 cars in the Forza Horizon 5 roster, the models listed below can be confidently called the champion cars, as they have exactly what it takes to win every race.

Lamborghini Sesto Elemento Forza Edition

  • Type: Extreme Track Toy
  • Price: 2,750,000 CR

Sesto Elemento is not only one of the fastest cars in the game, it is also one of the most lighweight, which makes it perfect for track racing. It can reach 100 km/h in just 2.5 seconds, which is unbelievably fast acceleration.

Currently, there are two versions of Lamborghini Sesto Elemento in Forza Horizon 5, but the Forza Edition is a superior one. Although you can't buy it in the autoshop like the regular model, you can win it through Wheelspin and Auction House.

BMW X5 M Forza Edition

  • Type: Extreme Track Toy
  • Price: 500,000 CR

The Forza Edition of BMW X5 M is very different from the regular version of the car. This iteration is much better and has an extremely high performance both on highway and offroad.

This one is available only to the owners of the VIP Membership DLC pack, and it's not a surprise that this pack includes one of the most pushed cars in the entire game.

Mercedes-Benz AMG CLK GTR Forza Edition

  • Type: Extreme Track Toy
  • Price: 2,250,000 CR

This supercar is another Forza Edition phenomenon that will take you to the brink of the speed limits in Forza Horizon 5. Both acceleration and speed, as well as handling and braking are unsurpassed in AMG CLK GTR.

Veteran Forza players will instantly recognize this model, as it has been the mainstay of the series throughout many years. However, this new version of the car is even better. Just don't look for it on Autoshows, as it's available only through Wheelspin prizes and Auction House bids.

Pagani Huayra BC Forza Edition

  • Type: Extreme Track Toy
  • Price: 2,700,000 CR

The Forza Edition of Pagani Huayra BC is probably the only other car in the same class as AMG CLK GTR.

If we compare these two, then Pagani will have a slightly higher speed, while Mercedes-Benz will have a better acceleration overall.

In case you can't get the Forza Edition of this car from Wheelspin, then you can purchase the regular version of  Huayra BC from the Forzathon shop.

Apollo Intensa Emozione "Welcome Pack"

  • Type: Extreme Track Toy
  • Price: 1,500,000 CR

If you like the sleek design of Apollo cars, then Intensa Emozione should definitely be on your radar. Although the original version of the car is quite powerful, it is recommended to get the "Welcome Pack" DLC version, as it has better speed and acceleration.

Just like Lamborghini Sesto Elemento, this car can reach 100 km/h in mere 2.5 seconds. It's no surprise, as the vehicle is based on the Ferrari V12 6.3 litre engine, which is a real beast.

Koenigsegg One:1

  • Type: Hypercar
  • Price: 2,800,000 CR

Koenigsegg is a car for anyone who wants to perform exceptionally well on straight-line races. It may not have the highest acceleration, but it boasts with the top speed of 442 km/h and some of the best braking and handling in the game.

It has a Formula One chassis made of carbon fibre, active suspension, and ride height control. Also, it is available for purchase via Autoshow that makes it so much easier to get than the other cars on this list.

RAESR Tachyon Speed

  • Type: Hypercar
  • Price: 1,050,000 CR

Here is one of the newcomers that may surprise many players with its highly affordable price. The reason is that this car cannot be bought anywhere else except through Forzathon shop, or won at Wheelspin and Auction House.

RAESR is a protoype car, powered by six electric engines, that has a tremendously futuristic design, which was inspired by jet fighters, and its performance fully accords with that choice.

Koenigsegg Agera RS

  • Type: Hypercar
  • Price: 2,000,000 CR

Agera RS is a new offering from the Koenigsegg manufacturer. It has a slightly higher speed than the One:1 model, and it is an excellent choice for Speed Trap PR Stunts or any fast racing track in general.

It shares another essential element with the One:1 model, and that is the V8 Twin Turbo 5 litre engine that was upgraded specifically for the Agera version. You can buy this car on the Autoshow just like most other Koenigsegg vehicles.

Ferrari FXX K

  • Type: Extreme Track Toy
  • Price: 2,700,000 CR

Now here's a car that has something different to offer than just extremely high speed. This Ferrari model is designed in mind with the best steering and handling possible in a super fast vehicle.

FXX K will perform the best on challenging tracks with lots of twists and turns, which also require high speed. It won't do too well on straight racing tracks, but any other complicated highway is this car's best friend.

Ferrari F50 GT

  • Type: Extreme Track Toy
  • Price: 2,000,000 CR

This must be the most famous Ferrari car ever, and it is still one of the best cars you can get in the Forza Horizon series due to its incredibly powerful Racing V12 engine.

Just like FXX K, it may not have the highest speed in the game, but the handling is top notch, as well as highly efficient braking that simply outclasses most other cars in the same category.

Rimac Concept Two

  • Type: Hypercar
  • Price: 2,000,000 CR

Rimac is the second electric car on our list, but this time it is supported by four engines instead of six, as it was the case with RAESR Tachyon Speed. Nonetheless, it doesn't impair its performance. Rimac has a higher speed and acceleration than RAESR.

The only disadvantage is the handling, which does suffer due to heavier weight. RAESR model has 1451 kg weight, while Rimac has a whopping 1950 kg and this does make it a little bit clumsier on the road.

Maserati MC12 Versione Corsa

  • Type: Extreme Track Toy
  • Price: 2,500,000 CR

Maserati MC12 can be put in the same row as Ferrari FXX K. Not only do they share the same base model of Ferrari Enzo Ferrari, but also the same V12 6 litre engine.

This means that both of these models are practically the same except the price. So if you are looking for a Ferrari supercar that is a tad cheaper, then look no further than Maserati Corsa.

Ultima Evolution Coupe 1020

  • Type: Extreme Track Toy
  • Price: 300,000 CR

Lastly, here is a car for all those who are looking for a solid racing performer in the beginning of the game when you don't have as much money for the higher league vehicles.

Ultima is a perfect choice, as it is first and foremost extremely cheap for a racing supercar, and second, performance-wise this car can be compared to other high performing racing vehicles on this list.

With the top speed of 393 km/h and decent acceleration, this car can get you to the finishing line faster than any other vehicle in the same price range.

Forza Horizon 5: How to Unlock Goliath Race https://www.gameskinny.com/46orz/forza-horizon-5-how-to-unlock-goliath-race https://www.gameskinny.com/46orz/forza-horizon-5-how-to-unlock-goliath-race Tue, 16 Nov 2021 11:05:27 -0500 Sergey_3847

The Goliath race in Forza Horizon 5 is not only the hardest and largest race in the game, it also offers a huge 40,000 XP reward, as well as "Long Gone" achievement once you finish it. This race will take you all around the game's world map, which does take a lot of time and preparedness.

Our guide will explain how to unlock Goliath race in Forza Horizon 5. You will need to do a few other smaller races before you can get into the big one, and then you can really test out the power of your vehicle.

How to Unlock Goliath Race in Forza Horizon 5

Earn Accolade Points

Before you can start playing the biggest race in the game, you will have to finish a few other smaller tasks that can be found in the Accolades menu:

  1. Go to "Campaign" menu
  2. Select "World Map" option
  3. Select "View Accolades"

Here you can choose to complete smaller tasks and earn Accolade points, which are required to collect Adventure Chapter points.

Earn Adventure Chapter Points

When you earn around 8,000 Accolade points, this should be enough to get 1x Adventure Chapter point.

Before unlocking the Goliath race, you will need to at least unlock the first two Horizon Festival adventures: "Welcome to Mexico" and "On a Wing and a Prayer".

Complete any of the smaller Accolade tasks to your liking and once you unlock another Adventure Chapter point, follow these steps:

  1. Join the Horizon Festival Mexico mainstage
  2. Select "Festival Line Up" option
  3. You should have "1 Available Unlocks" listed below the menu
  4. Select "The Goliath" ultimate event from the list
  5. Confirm by spending your Adventure Chapter point

Now you can start racing in the Goliath event and make a tour around Mexico. You will need a really good car to be able to finish this race, so be prepared to spend some credits.

The best car for this event would be Lamborghini Sesto Elemento. There are two versions of this car in Forza Horizon 5. One can be purchased from an Autoshow for 2.5 million credits, while the special Forza Edition can be only unlocked through Wheelspin or Super Wheelspin, and purchased through Auction House.

Forza Horizon 5 Convoy Not Working Fix https://www.gameskinny.com/v19s3/forza-horizon-5-convoy-not-working-fix https://www.gameskinny.com/v19s3/forza-horizon-5-convoy-not-working-fix Tue, 16 Nov 2021 11:14:48 -0500 Sergey_3847

Convoys are not working for some Forza Horizon 5 players, whether they can't join a convoy or they're immediately booted from any they join. Playground Games are working on this issue, but for now there are some ways you can possible get around a convoy not working in Forza Horizon 5.

Our guide will provide you with a few possible solutions on how to fix convoy not working bug in Forza Horizon 5. Some of these solutions come from official sources, while others have been discovered by players.

Join and Leave Horizon Festival

Before Playground Games come up with the official fix, some of the players have discovered interesting ways to fix the convoy bug.

For example, Reddit user Leather_Blacksmith32 offers the following solution for players who join the convoy but disappear later on and get stuck at the loading screen:

  1. Join the convoy with your friends
  2. Travel to the Horizon Festival location and join it
  3. Leave the Horizon Festival
  4. Enter the convoy without the bug

This solution seemed to work for many other players, so try it out.

Invite Friends Again

Another convoy bug allows players to invite random players, but won't let their friends online.

The fix to this bug was discovered by Steam user Jasmine, and she suggests the following:

  1. All parties should enter the game in solo mode
  2. One of the parties needs to go online first
  3. Once one of you entered the Horizon Life session, another friend can go online, too
  4. This second person should see the following message: "A friend is online, do you want to join their convoy?"
  5. Confirm it by pressing "YES"

This may not work every time, but you need to try it a few times to get it to let you in.

Join Convoy Via Xbox App

Other players have discovered that if they can't join convoy via the game itself, then that can do it through the Xbox app.

But you will need to update your Xbox app to the latest version first:

  1. Open Microsoft Store
  2. Click on the three dots in the upper right corner
  3. Select "Downloads and Updates" option
  4. If there are any new updates available, let them update your app

When this is done, you can open your Xbox app, right-click on your friend's gamertag in the friends list and select "Join the game". They obviously need to be playing Forza Horizon 5 at the moment.

Lastly, if your friend sends you an invite through the game to join their convoy, the invite message may not pop-up in the game itself, but in the Xbox app. So just go there using Alt+Tab key combination to switch between windows and accept the invitation in the Xbox app.

Fix Your Server Connectivity

If you Xbox app is updated, then you can also run a few tests to identify any possible connectivity issues.

Follow these steps to fix your server connectivity:

  1. Open Xbox app on your PC
  2. Go to "Settings" menu
  3. Select "Network" tab
  4. Wait for all the tests in progress to finish
  5. Make sure that your "Nat Type" and "Server Connectivity" are "OPEN"
  6. If there is a "BLOCKED" result in the "Server Connectivity", then select "Click for more information" option below
  7. Follow all the required steps to fix your connectivity issues

It is also possible that you will have the following error message in the Nat Type: "Teredo is unable to qualify".

Teredo is a networking protocol that is used by Xbox Live servers, so when this protocol is off, you will not be able to join a multiplayer game in Forza Horizon 5.

Here is a quick fix for this problem:

  1. Press Start button
  2. Go to "Settings" menu
  3. Select "Gaming" tab
  4. Click on the "Xbox Networking" option
  5. Push the "Fix It" button

Once all the procedures are over and the Nat Type shows "OPEN" status, then it means that you can now successfully join the multiplayer games online.

Forza Support Hotfix

As of now, the developer is well aware of the convoy bug, and the support team is working hard to fix it, as evident by their latest tweet on the official Twitter page that says:

"We are continuing to work on the #ForzaHorizon5 hotfix and hope to have more information to share later this week. As always, we greatly appreciate the patience, support and submitted tickets!"

This means that the official hotfix should be out later this week or next week, if everything goes as planned.

Forza Horizon 5: How to Unlock The DeLorean https://www.gameskinny.com/9yjxj/forza-horizon-5-how-to-unlock-the-delorean https://www.gameskinny.com/9yjxj/forza-horizon-5-how-to-unlock-the-delorean Tue, 16 Nov 2021 18:01:04 -0500 Michael Feghali

Forza Horizon 5 has added the iconic DeLorean car from the Back to The Future movies as an unlockable car in the game. While players must earn the car by completing challenges, a new glitch lets you purchase the DeLorean for incredibly cheap. This guide will go over exactly how to unlock the DeLorean both the legit way and using the glitch. 

How to Get the DeLorean in Forza Horizon 5

The DeLorean is being offered as a free reward from the Summer Wet Season and requires 26 Festival Points to unlock. This means you’ll need to grind specific daily and weekly challenges to earn enough points for the car. You’ll also have to act fast as the season rewards will reset on November 18.

Another way to get it would be using the Auction house to purchase it from other players. This is a fast and easy way to get the car if you don’t mind spending your credits. However, there is a cheaper way to purchase the DeLorean which will be explained later on in this guide.

Finally, this vehicle can drop from Wheelspins, but the chances of getting the exact car you want are usually slim.

Glitch to Get the DeLorean for Cheap

From the pause menu, go to the Cars tab and select Car Collection. Then press the dedicated button to "jump to manufacturer" and select DeLorean.

Then select the blank card that is supposed to represent the DeLorean car. You'll notice that there is no button to purchase this car. However, if you back out of the car collection and then directly enter back in, you'll be able to purchase the vehicle for just 15,000 credits.

Just click on the purchase button and proceed to buy the it as you would with any other car. While getting any car for only 15,000 credits is already a killer deal, getting the DeLorean this cheap is an absolute steal.

The developers will probably catch on to things and patch this glitch pretty soon, so best to act quickly and take advantage of it while it’s still working. The glitch also works for the first car from other manufacturers but isn’t worth using as none are as cheap as the DeLorean.

Forza Horizon 5: How to Buy, Sell, and Gift Cars https://www.gameskinny.com/qfsc4/forza-horizon-5-how-to-buy-sell-and-gift-cars https://www.gameskinny.com/qfsc4/forza-horizon-5-how-to-buy-sell-and-gift-cars Mon, 15 Nov 2021 12:48:31 -0500 Michael Feghali

To buy, sell, and gift cars is a big part of the Forza Horizon 5 experience as you're going to be wanting something faster and better through most of your time with the game. We will go over how to do all three things in this guide.

How to Buy Cars in Forza Horizon 5

To buy cars in Forza Horizon 5, make your way to any Horizon Festival Outpost. From there you can purchase cars using either the AutoShow or Auction House.

How to Buy Cars from the AutoShow

From the pause menu, navigate over to the Buy and Sell tab and choose the AutoShow to buy new cars. This will bring up a list of cars available for purchase using a fixed amount of in-game credits.

How to Buy Cars from the Auction House

The Auction House also functions as another way to purchase cars. The main difference is that you will be buying cars directly from other players. To access the Auction House, go back to the Buy and Sell tab and select Auction House.

How to sell your cars

We just explained how to use the Auction House to buy cars from other players, but you can also use it to sell your cars. Again, choose Auction House from the Buy & Sell tab. Except this time go to Start Auction, select the vehicle you would like to sell, and choose Auction Car.

After choosing which car to sell, you will be asked to set the starting price, buyout price, and auction length. Now your car is listed in the Auction House and all you need to do is wait until it is purchased by another player. Just make sure to claim your credits after selling a car as they will disappear after 60 days.

How to Gift Cars to Other Players.

In Forza Horizon 5, you can gift cars you already own to other players. However, you can't gift cars to friends or specific individuals. Instead, the game will randomly assign gifted cars to different groups of players.

To gift cars, open the pause menu and go to the My Horizon tab. Select Gift Drop and choose the car you'd like to give away. Then you can choose to gift the car to Anyone, New players, Returning Players, New Hall of Fame Members, and Community Contributors.

And that's it! Your car will be permanently removed from your garage and given to someone else.

You can also gift vehicles using bar finds by going through the same process.

And that's all you need to know about buying, selling, and gifting cars in Forza Horizon 5. For more tips and tricks check out our other Forza Horizon 5 guides.

Forza Horizon 5: How to Fast Travel https://www.gameskinny.com/siomz/forza-horizon-5-how-to-fast-travel https://www.gameskinny.com/siomz/forza-horizon-5-how-to-fast-travel Sun, 14 Nov 2021 16:05:48 -0500 Michael Feghali

While racing across the map and exploring the world of Forza Horizon 5 is a blast, sometimes you just want to get to the next event as fast as possible. So we've put together a guide on how to unlock fast travel and reduce its cost.

How to Unlock Fast Travel in Forza Horizon 5

In the beginning, fast travel in Forza Horizon 5 is quite restrictive. You'll only be able to fast travel to houses you own and Horizon Festival outpostsTo gain the ability to go anywhere on the map, you’ll need to purchase the Buenas Vistas property.

This house is located in the Baja region and will set you back 2 million credits. Also, make sure that you've unlocked the Horizon Festival in the Baja region first, as you won't be able to purchase the property before doing so.

How to Fast Travel for Free

Now that you've completely unlocked fast travel, you can easily travel to any road on the map. However, unlocking fast travel is only the easy part; you are still somewhat limited at this point.

You will only be able to jump for free to one property that you set as your home. Whereas fast traveling elsewhere will cost you 10,000 credits per journey. While this may not seem like much, you really should be saving your credits for new vehicles and upgrades this early on in the game.

Thankfully, there is a way to reduce this hefty fee and eventually jump to any location for free. To do this you must find and break Fast Travel boards that are spread across the map. Each board will reduce your fast travel cost by 200 credits and there are a total of 50 boards in Forza Horizon 5

These Fast Travel boards are marked on the map by a purple icon with a white lightning symbol. The game gives you the option to purchase a Treasure Map to reveal the location of these boards, but paying real money to avoid paying fake money sounds counterintuitive.

The boards aren't difficult to find and you'll probably come across most of them while just playing the game normally. 

That’s all you need to know about how to fast travel in Forza Horizon 5. For more tips and tricks, be sure to check out our dedicated guides hub.

All Forza Horizon 5 Barn Find Locations and Rewards https://www.gameskinny.com/5vina/all-forza-horizon-5-barn-find-locations-and-rewards https://www.gameskinny.com/5vina/all-forza-horizon-5-barn-find-locations-and-rewards Sun, 14 Nov 2021 08:37:24 -0500 Josh Broadwell

Forza Horizon 5 Barn Finds are a unique set of side missions that reward you with some of the best cars in the game, but it takes a while to find them all. With just a few exceptions, most Barn Finds only unlock at random after you’ve played the game and completed other challenges for a while. The rewards are worth the hassle, though. 

What are Barn Finds in Forza Horizon 5?

Barn Finds task you with finding old barns tucked away in various spots on Forza Horizon 5’s massive map. Inside each is a car in need of repair. Once you find the barn, the car lives in the Garage tab of your house menu. It takes some time for the repairs to finish, or you can pay credits to get the car right away. We don’t recommend doing that unless you’re swimming in credits, though.

The quirk with these "collectibles" is that while three of them unlock by completing Expeditions, the remaining 11 pop up at random. After finishing a race or other challenge, you may hear one of the event organizers mention a potential barn location. It’ll be marked on your map in a big purple circle, and you’ll need to search for the barn in that area.

It often takes a fair bit of searching too, though you can launch Drone Mode from the “Creative Hub” menu to make the process easier.

All Barn Find Locations

Here’s where each location will be once it becomes available for you. The order will likely be different for you, though we’ve numbered them to make matching them with rewards easier.

Barn Find 1

  • Location: La Gran Caldera
  • Unlocks: Take a hot spring sample during the Caldera Expedition
  • Reward: Ford Racing Escort Mk1

How to Get Forzathon Points in Forza Horizon 5 https://www.gameskinny.com/ux5yi/how-to-get-forzathon-points-in-forza-horizon-5 https://www.gameskinny.com/ux5yi/how-to-get-forzathon-points-in-forza-horizon-5 Sat, 13 Nov 2021 14:46:18 -0500 Josh Broadwell

Forzathon points are vital if you want new cars in Forza Horizon 5, but it’s easy to overlook how you actually get them in the deluge of information the game hits you with. Fortunately, earning Forzathon points is simple in most cases, and you’ve got plenty of chances to earn them each day and week. 

What Are Forzathon Points in Forza Horizon 5?

Forzathon points are a type of currency used exclusively in the Forzathon Shop, which is tied to Forza Horizon 5’s seasonal challenges. 

Each season introduces a new set of rewards, such as cars, emotes, and more importantly, cars, and they cost anywhere from a few hundred to several thousand points.

How to Get Forzathon Points

Open the campaign menu, and choose Horizon playlist. You’ll see a broad selection of options for the current season, including daily and weekly challenges — many of which you won’t be able to complete until you explore more or unlock faster cars — and these are the most reliable ways to get Forzathon points.

Completing any Arcade event earns you three Forzathon points as well, though they require an online connection. 

There’s a range of photo challenges to complete for points and, sometimes, credits, and additional car- or task-based challenges that take you to various points on the map. These are often very specific, such as pulling off a certain skill with a specific car.

If you’re having trouble accessing the Forzathon shop, there’s a good reason for that. It’s not available yet. Just keep stockpiling points to spend in the meantime.

That’s all you need to know about getting Forzathon points in Forza Horizon 5, but make sure to check out our other Forza Horizon 5 guides for more tips, such as how to unlock drift zones and how to play online with friends.

Forza Horizon 5 Drift Zones and How to Unlock Them https://www.gameskinny.com/65lxw/forza-horizon-5-drift-zones-and-how-to-unlock-them https://www.gameskinny.com/65lxw/forza-horizon-5-drift-zones-and-how-to-unlock-them Sat, 13 Nov 2021 01:08:09 -0500 Josh Broadwell

Forza Horizon 5 drift zones bring back a classic challenge from the previous game, but they’ll take some work to unlock. These challenges offer a chance to earn big points towards accolades and other unlockables, so it’s worth spending Horizon Adventure points on. If you're wondering how to unlock drift zones, it’s time to party.

How to Unlock Forza Horizon 5 Drift Zones

Drift zones are a type of PR stunt, but you can’t unlock them right away. PR Stunts only unlock after you’ve completed the first Horizon Adventure chapter, the Gran Caldera Expedition. This opens up after you’ve cleared a few races, even if you don’t perform particularly well in them.

After completing the Caldera expedition, you’re free to pick where the next Horizon outpost should go. The Baja region is closest, but it only unlocks speed tests and traps. 

Instead, spend your adventure points on the Canyon region to unlock the Full Moon Party. If you’re not paying attention to the map, the animation is a bit misleading. The Canyon expedition isn’t in the north, where the canyon icon is. Instead, you’ll travel to the far eastern coast and the area shown in the picture above to start the party.

This Expedition is fairly simple and just has you navigate a float through a parade. Once that’s done, you can spend your points to unlock the region’s PR stunts: Drift Zones.

Tips for Drift Zones

Drift zones are marked as red challenges on the Forza Horizon 5 world map, and as with the speed zones, you’ll need to stay within the flagged area to avoid getting kicked out of the challenge.

It’ll likely take a few tries to figure out which car works best for you when tackling drift zones. Some players recommend using fast cars, such as sports cars, since their handling makes drift easy. However, I’ve found it’s easier to control the drift with slightly heavier cars and had some success with the Ford Bronco.

Whatever you choose, make sure stability control is off, since it limits your drift ability.

Forza Horizon 5 has roughly 20 drift zone challenges. You’ll earn Accolade Points based on your performance, so it’s worth clearing them if you want to unlock more Expeditions and challenges faster.

That’s all you need to know about Forza Horizon 5’s drift zones, but make sure to check out our other Forza Horizon 5 guides for more tips.

Forza Horizon 5 Star 27 Mural Location: How to Complete This Forzathon Challenge https://www.gameskinny.com/al3fo/forza-horizon-5-star-27-mural-location-how-to-complete-this-forzathon-challenge https://www.gameskinny.com/al3fo/forza-horizon-5-star-27-mural-location-how-to-complete-this-forzathon-challenge Sat, 13 Nov 2021 01:12:03 -0500 Josh Broadwell

Finding Forza Horizon 5’s Star 27 mural is one of the first sets of Forzathon challenges in Playground Games’ latest. It’s a fairly small mural and not the easiest to spot if you aren’t sure where to look. But once you get to its location, make sure you’re in the right car for the photo or the challenge won’t clear. Here's where to look for the Star 27 mural.

Forza Horizon 5 Star 27 Mural Location

The Star 27 mural is right near your first house, Casa Bella, in the Mulege area. Leave your driveway, and head south to the middle of town. Make your way to the intersection shown in the image above, and then, if need be, switch to a modern sports car. 

Change to a Modern Sports Car in Forza Horizon 5

You’ll have at least one of these cars right from the start, and if you’re not sure what qualifies, you can choose car types as a filter option in the car selection menu.

Once you’re in the right vehicle, open photo mode by pressing “Up” on the D-pad, then position the photo so your car is next to the Star 27 Mural, and snap it. The challenge will clear automatically after that.

You’ll earn 2 points for finding the Star 27 Mural, which is admittedly not very much. However, this is likely not the last such photo challenge Playground will throw our way in Forza Horizon 5, so think of it more as a tutorial than anything else.

That’s all you need to know about Forza Horizon 5’s Star 27 Mural, but Forzathon challenges are just a grain in the desert. There’s so much else to discover, including drift challenges and barn finding (it’s more fun than it sounds), so check out our other Forza Horizon 5 guides for more tips and tricks.

Forza Horizon 5 Multiplayer: How to Play with Friends https://www.gameskinny.com/rad0h/forza-horizon-5-multiplayer-how-to-play-with-friends https://www.gameskinny.com/rad0h/forza-horizon-5-multiplayer-how-to-play-with-friends Sat, 13 Nov 2021 01:18:36 -0500 Michael Feghali

Forza Horizon 5 is filled to the brim with content and interesting game modes to keep solo players engaged and playing for hours on end. Nonetheless, being able to play with friends can elevate the racing game even further and offer a whole new experience.

So, if you're struggling to invite and play with friends in Forza Horizon 5, this guide will go over how to do exactly that.

In order to play with friends, you'll need to create and join a Convoy, which is Forza's equivalent of an online party. However, there are a few steps to take before you'll be able to do this if you've just started the game.

How to Create a Convoy to Play With Friends

If you pause the game, you'll notice that the Online tab might be greyed out. This is because online multiplayer isn't available straight away, and you'll need to complete some races and activities first.

These include the introductory tutorial, the "On a Wing and a Prayer" showcase event, and a quest of your choice. Thankfully, these are fairly basic races and serve to familiarize you with the game's controls and mechanics.

After completing these introductory races, you'll now be able to play with friends by accessing the Online tab in the pause menu.

From there, click on Friends/Players to bring up your friends list. Then simply select the friend you'd like to play with and press Invite to Convoy. If you can't find any of your friends on the list, press the Y button to manage your convoy. This should bring up a list of your Xbox friends and allow you to invite them.

Another way to play with friends in multiplayer would be to select Convoy directly from the pause menu instead of Friends/Players. Then select Create a Convoy and set the privacy to Friends or Invite Only (both work fine). After this step, just proceed by inviting your friends using the same method as before.

Each convoy can include a maximum of 12 players in Forza Horizon 5. However, a convoy of this size won't be able to participate in most events as they are usually limited to 6 players per team.

Forza Horizon 5 also supports crossplay between Xbox and PC so you can play with friends on different platforms. While Xbox players can join convoys normally, Steam players will have to use the Xbox Game Bar overlay on PC to accept and send invites.

Forza Horizon 5: Forzathon Shop Not Working Fix https://www.gameskinny.com/wj0qm/forza-horizon-5-forzathon-shop-not-working-fix https://www.gameskinny.com/wj0qm/forza-horizon-5-forzathon-shop-not-working-fix Wed, 10 Nov 2021 11:23:27 -0500 Sergey_3847

The Forzathon shop is not working for some Forza Horizon 5 players, with many reporting they can't even open it much less make purchases. This guide will provide you with the Forzathon shop not working fix in Forza Horizon 5.

Don't worry if you can't access Forzathon shop just now, as there is no bug. The shop will become available soon enough for all Forza Horizon 5 players, and all you need to do is wait for it.

Forzathon Shop Not Working Fix in Forza Horizon 5

Currently, the Forzathon shop is not active in Forza Horizon 5. This was made intentional by the developer, which is clearly stated on the official Forza Horzion series webpage:

"The Forzathon Shop is currently not open, please keep an eye on our social channels for when this is available"

This is the real reason why so many players can't access the shop. So is there a fix to this problem? Yes, you can wait for it to become active once the next update is being released.

You can follow the Forza Horizon official Twitter page for all the news concerning the next update.

The similar strategy with the release of Forzathon shop was applied during the release of Forza Horizon 4. Back then the shop had been listed in the game's menu, but it would not open during the launch of the game. However, it was instantly available as soon as the first update got released.

Forzathon shop allows players to purchase exclusive shop items after completing daily and weekly challenges. The items include new cars, locations, emotes, car horns, and many other cool items.
