It’s another Thursday with the season changing into the Winter week within Forza Horizon 5. No, I don’t miss the cold either!
The cars you can earn this week are the new Ferrari 512TR 1992 for 20 points and the returning MG MG3 2015 for 40 points.
On Top of the World
As for the Treasure Hunt this week named “On Top of the World”, this contains the clue “Anything can break the Stone Door with a 3-Star rating”.
Even though the picture contains a Hoonigan Ford RS200 Evolution 1986, this is completable within any car, as you’re required to earn three stars on the Puerta Pétrea Trailblazer.
The Trailblazer can be found to the East of Guanajuato, directly next to the landscape sign on the map that says Hotel Mirador Balderrama.
Providing you have a fast off-road vehicle, a good way of completing this is by blasting through the start gate, travel down the road until you get to a dirt path on the left, just after a crest in the road.
Follow this dirt path within Valle de las Ranas and look for a break in the rocks to cut directly towards the end gate.
Upon completion, you should get a completion popup alongside an orange circle appearing within the Caldera Mountain part of the map.
The treasure chest can be found to the north-east of the Juggernaut start gate, located near a car park and small building, and is found right next to the radio tower nearby. Simply smash into this chest, and the treasure is yours.
PHOTO CHALLENGE #REACHINGSTARS
This week’s photo challenge requires you to take a photo of any Hypercar at the Gran Telescopio. This can be found to the north-western point of the Caldera Mountain, right next to the Event Horizon Danger Sign and Las Dunas Cross Country race.
Simply drive up to the telescope with your hypercar, 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 “To The Moon!” 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, choose a phrase you would like to replace, then head to the Exclamations tab at the top, and phrase will be available for you to select.
