How to complete the Forza Horizon 5 Blind Slided Treasure Hunt

Oasley Beattie

It’s the final week of the Horizon World Cup as the spring season arrives within Forza Horizon 5’s Festival Playlist, bringing with it some new challenges.

Which country did you choose for the series, and why was it Japan? Oh admit it, we know you did…

The cars available to unlock for this week are the new-to-Horizon MG MG3 2015 for 25 points and the Pagani Zonda R 2010 for 40 points.

If you’ve been working hard through Series 4, then you should have enough points for both the Saleen S7 2004 and the Koenigsegg Jesko 2020.

The final Treasure Hunt of the series, Blind Slided, comes with the clue: “There are two star-shaped Dunas and a Desert Flyer sliding”.

This clue points towards the Las Dunas Drift Zone located within Dunas Blancas, and also the Porsche #65 Rothsport Racing 911 “Desert Flyer”. Once you’ve jumped into the vehicle and earned two stars from the drift zone, a red circle will appear immediately nearby on the map.

The treasure chest can be easily found directly on the ramp that is used for the Desert Dunes Danger Sign. Upon smashing the treasure chest, you’ll receive 50,000 credits alongside three points towards the festival playlist.

This photo challenge requires you to photograph any buggy at Dunas Blancas, which is located to the Western side of the map, and the same area where the treasure chest is located. It really is as simple as that this week.


Upon reaching the area, open the camera app by using up on the D-pad and tap A to snap the picture to gain the rewards. Upon completion, the “Preparing for Take-Off” Forza link reward can be applied by pausing the game in freeroam, select the ‘Online’ tab, then Forza Link on the bottom right.

From here, select a phrase to replace, head to the Exclamations tab at the top, and the Prepare for Take-Off phrase is readily available to be used. 


This week’s rewards available within Series 4’s Hot season are two cars, a dress and a car horn, alongside the always available Wheelspins. 


Both cars within the shop are unable to be purchased through the autoshow, so this would be the perfect time to snap them up, especially the Toyota Trueno if you’re a fan of Initial D. The available items from the Forzathon Shop this week are: 

  • Toyota Trueno 1985 – 600 FP 
  • Raúl Urias Pencil Dress – 75 FP 
  • Windows Tada Car Horn – 75 FP
  • Mini X-Raid All4 Racing Countryman 2013 – 400 FP 
  • 1x Super Wheelspin – 300 FP 
  • 1x Horizon Wheelspin – 80 FP 


The final week features a battle between one country that’s known for its magnificent precision and quality of motoring vehicles, and the UK.


Similar to the previous few weeks, there isn’t a wrong choice here, as any British or Japanese car will be suitable to complete these challenges.

Simply win a Dirt Race Event, 4 Stars from Drift Zones and bank a total of 100,000 Skill Score in your chosen vehicle, and the weekly challenge is complete. 

One final point on this week’s playlist – don’t forget to enjoy the Showcase Remix ‘Closing Ceremony’.
