How do I unlock the Achievements in Forza Horizon 5?

Forza Horizon 5 Store ScreenshotSource: Xbox Game Studios

Many of Forza Horizon 5's Achievements are pretty straightforward to unlock, but some take a lot of time or effort to complete. We'll continually update this section with information on how to unlock every Achievement in Forza Horizon 5, and provide all the information you need to 100% this incredible game's Achievements.

Here's how you can complete every Achievement in Forza Horizon 5.

Welcome to Mexico

  • Description and reward: Arrive at Horizon Festival Mexico — 10 Gamerscore

Forza Horizon 5 Achievement ImageSource: Xbox Game Studios

The first Achievement any player will earn in Forza Horizon 5, "Welcome to Mexico" congratulates players for first entering Horizon Festival Mexico. All you need to do to earn this introductory Achievement is to complete the initial drive at the beginning of the game, making this an unavoidable Achievement if you play for more than 10 minutes.

Race Into Action

  • Description and reward: Complete any Horizon Race Event — 10 Gamerscore

Forza Horizon 5 Achievement ImageSource: Xbox Game Studios

Forza Horizon 5 is filled with various kinds of Race Events, including asphalt, cross-country, off-road, drag races, and more. In order to earn the "Race Into Action" Achievement, you'll need to enter and complete any one Race Event in FH5, which you'll be able to do immediately after completing the first three objectives in FH5.

After the initial drive, the first Showcase Event, and the first Horizon Story, you'll be offered a selection of races to enter in order to earn Accolade points. Choose any one of these races to enter the Achievement early on, but this Achievement will pop the first time you complete a Race Event at any point in Forza Horizon 5.

Adaptable

  • Description and reward: Complete the "On a Wing and a Prayer" Showcase Event — 10 Gamerscore

Forza Horizon 5 Achievement ImageSource: Xbox Game Studios

Another practically unavoidable Achievement, this will likely be the second Achievement most players will earn. The "On a Wing and a Prayer" Showcase Event is the second objective players will complete, immediately after the initial drive and introductory cinematic. You'll need to drive to the designated location (the game will nudge you in that direction) and race against a cargo plane and two wingsuit-equipped NPCs riding dirt bikes.

The Showcase Event will put you behind the wheel of the 1994 Hoonigan Ford Escort RS Cosworth WRC "Cossie V2," which will be rewarded to you upon completion of the event. Showcase Events aren't designed to be difficult, but the race will almost always be close. Once you complete the Showcase Event, you'll earn this Achievement immediately.

Icebreaker

  • Description and reward: Participate in a Horizon Arcade Event — 10 Gamerscore

Forza Horizon 5 Achievement ImageSource: Xbox Game Studios

After you finish the introduction to Forza Horizon 5, you'll be let loose in Horizon Life, the always-connected hub world that brings players from all over the world closer together. Scattered around the world are Horizon Arcade events, which are themed series of mini-games and challenges that players can complete together in exchange for Forzathon Points (which can be spent on exclusive rewards at the Forzathon Shop).

In order to earn the "Icebreaker" Achievement, you'll need to participate in any of the five categories of Horizon Arcade. You don't need to make it all the way to Round 3 and complete the Horizon Arcade, but you do need to participate and finish at least one round to complete this Achievement. Horizon Arcade events happen regularly all across Forza Horizon 5, so there's always another event to enter if you miss one.

Mi Casa

  • Description and reward: Unlock the first Player House — 10 Gamerscore

Forza Horizon 5 Achievement ImageSource: Xbox Game Studios

The "Mi Casa" Achievement goes hand in hand with the "This is the Way" Achievement further down, since most players will earn these at around the same time. The first Forza Horizon 5 Player House is "Casa Bella," and is given to players for free upon getting through the initial "tutorial" stage of Forza Horizon 5 and starting the first proper Horizon Adventure Chapter.

If you intend to complete the FH5 campaign, this Achievement is also pretty much unavoidable. Once you complete the initial drive, first Showcase Event, first Horizon Story, and earn enough Accolade points to start a new Horizon Adventure Chapter, you'll be directed to Mulegé, where you'll be given Casa Bella by Ramiro. You can use Casa Bella for anything Horizon Festivals can be used for, including customizing your cars and character, expanding your car collection, and more.

First Love

  • Description and reward: Purchase your first car from the Autoshow — 10 Gamerscore

Forza Horizon 5 Achievement ImageSource: Xbox Game Studios

The "First Love" Achievement is pretty straightforward: buy any car at all from the Forza Horizon 5 Autoshow. You can earn this Achievement at any point, simply by heading to a Horizon Festival site or Player House to access the Autoshow, and purchasing absolutely any car you want (that's within your means to afford). You'll need to earn money from completing races and other events, as well as from Wheelspins.

This is the Way

  • Description and reward: Start a new Chapter of the Horizon Adventure — 20 Gamerscore

Forza Horizon 5 Achievement ImageSource: Xbox Game Studios

This Achievement is connected to the "Mi Casa" Achievement above, in that they're going to be unlocked around the same time. This Achievement is earned after you complete the initial drive, first Showcase Event, first Horizon Story, and you accept your first player house from Ramiro in Mulegé. After which, Forza Horizon 5 should expand and give you increased access to the Horizon Adventure campaign.

Once you've unlocked Horizon Adventure and are having everything explained to you, you'll unlock the "This is the Way" Achievement.

Viva Horizon!

  • Description and reward: Unlock your first Horizon Finale Event — 30 Gamerscore

Forza Horizon 5 Achievement ImageSource: Xbox Game Studios

"Viva Horizon!" is earned after unlocking any Horizon Finale Event, which is done through Horizon Adventure. Every Festival Site in Forza Horizon 5, each of which is given its own category in Horizon Adventure, features an "ultimate race." Many players may be familiar with The Goliath, a race that spans all of Mexico and is the Finale Event for Horizon Mexico.

To unlock a Horizon Finale Event, you'll need to progress through the Forza Horizon 5 introduction until you unlock Horizon Adventure, open one of the Horizon Festival Sites, and then unlock its Finale Event from Horizon Adventure. To do this, you'll need to earn plenty of Accolades through exploration, creation, racing, and more to progress through enough Horizon Adventure Chapters.

The six Horizon Finale Events include: The Goliath for Horizon Mexico, The Colossus for Horizon Apex, The Gauntlet for Horizon Wilds, The Titan for Horizon Baja, The Juggernaut for Horizon Rush, and The Marathon for Horizon Street Scene. Any of these Horizon Finale Events will unlock the "Viva Horizon!" Achievement.

Putting on a Show

  • Description and reward: Win every Showcase Event — 20 Gamerscore

Forza Horizon 5 Achievement ImageSource: Xbox Game Studios

In order to earn the "Putting on a Show" Achievement, you'll need to unlock and win all four Showcase Events in Forza Horizon 5. You'll complete the first Showcase Event, "On a Wing and a Prayer," during the FH5 introduction, but the other three are unlocked through Horizon Adventure.

"Flood, Sweat, and Gears" is unlocked under the Horizon Wilds section of Horizon Adventure, and pits players against a team on jetskis in the 2020 Ford Performance Bronco R #2069. "Buggy and the Best" is unlocked under the Horizon Baja section of Horizon Adventure, and will have players race against two 2020 Hot Wheels Monster Trucks Bone Shaker in the 2017 Ford Bronco #25 Ultra4 Racing "Brocky." Finally, "Catch Me If You Canyon" is unlocked under the Horizon Rush section in Horizon Adventure, and tasks you with beating a freight train while driving 1988 Lamborghini Countach LP5000 QV.

All four Showcase Events are gently rigged to lean towards giving you a very close win, but you'll still need to avoid major mistakes in order to come out on top. Completing Showcase Events can give you lots of Accolade points towards the next Horizon Adventure Chapter, making it easier to unlock the next Showcase Event, but you'll need to complete at least three Horizon Expeditions to unlock the corresponding Horizon Festival Sites first.

AWDyssey

  • Description and reward: Build the Horizon Wilds Outpost — 10 Gamerscore

Forza Horizon 5 Achievement ImageSource: Xbox Game Studios

There's an Achievement corresponding with building all six of the Horizon Festival Sites, with "AWDyssey" pertaining to the Horizon Wilds Outpost. After unlocking the Horizon Adventure, it's entirely up to you how to progress when you earn enough Accolades to unlock a new Chapter. In order to unlock the Horizon Wilds Outpost, you'll need to complete the Jungle Expedition, which has you take Ramiro into the jungle to track down a "big cat."

You'll need to help Ramiro recover his gear and lost notes, which he was forced to lose after a harrowing experience with his plane, and then you'll be given the location of the aforementioned big cat. Of course, the cat is actually a rare car. The 1991 Jaguar XJR-15 Sport, one of Forza Horizon 5's Barn Finds, is earned during this Expedition. After you complete the Jungle Expedition, you'll build the Horizon Wilds Outpost and unlock this Achievement.

Ask Any Racer, Any Real Racer

  • Description and reward: Build the Horizon Street Scene Outpost — 10 Gamerscore

Forza Horizon 5 Achievement ImageSource: Xbox Game Studios

You'll get to explore Guanajuato and uncover Mexico's vibrant street racing culture, meeting some of the key figures, before racing to the site of the Horizon Street Scene Outpost. After you complete the Guanajuato Expedition, you'll build the Horizon Wilds Outpost and unlock this Achievement.

Far From the Mudding Crowd

Forza Horizon 5 Achievement ImageSource: Xbox Game Studios

After unlock the Horizon Adventure, it's entirely up to you how to progress when you earn enough Accolades to unlock a new Chapter. In order to unlock the Horizon Apex Outpost, which is revolves around high-speed road racing, you'll need to complete the Tulum Expedition.

After you complete the Tulum Expedition, you'll build the Horizon Apex Outpost and unlock this Achievement.

There's Always Money in the Baja Stand

Forza Horizon 5 Achievement ImageSource: Xbox Game Studios

There's an Achievement corresponding with building all six of the Horizon Festival Sites, with "There's Always Money in the Baja Stand" pertaining to the Horizon Baja Outpost.

The Canyon Expedition is an interesting one, as it actually takes place during a traditional Mexican festival. During the Expedition, you'll be able to drive a parade float, before promptly launching it off a cliff. After you complete the Canyon Expedition, you'll build the Horizon Rush Outpost and unlock this Achievement.

Hall of Famer

  • Description and reward: Reach the Horizon Hall of Fame — 50 Gamerscore

Forza Horizon 5 Achievement ImageSource: Xbox Game Studios

The ultimate goal for Forza Horizon 5 players — and the conclusion of its Horizon Adventure campaign — is to reach the fabled Hall of Fame and add your name to the vaunted Hall of Fame Leaderboard. In order to reach the Hall of Fame and unlock this Achievement, you'll need to play the game extensively and earn enough Accolades to unlock every Horizon Adventure Chapter in the game.

You do not have to complete any Horizon Adventure apart from the Expeditions (which unlock the Horizon Festival Sites and give you access to other Horizon Adventure Chapters), but you do at least have to earn enough Accolades to unlock them all. A good way to earn the required Accolades if you want to reach the Hall of Fame as soon as possible is to focus on completing PR Stunts across Mexico. However, practically everything you do in Forza Horizon 5 rewards Accolade points.

Any time you complete or win a race for the first time, reach a new milestone in your car collection or online creations, discover a new part of Mexico, and everything in between, Forza Horizon 5 rewards your progress with Accolades, all of which contribute to the Horizon Adventure. After you reach the Hall of Fame and unlock this Achievement, you'll be able to earn additional Accolades to rise through the Leaderboard, and participate in brutal The Trial events through the Festival Playlist.

How to Race Friends and Influence People

  • Description and reward: Earn three Stars in the "Tristan" Chapter of the "Born Fast" Horizon Story — 10 Gamerscore

Forza Horizon 5 Achievement ImageSource: Xbox Game Studios

Forza Horizon 5 features several Horizon Stories, which are essentially side missions that follow smaller stories and characters. In order to earn the "How to Race Friends and Influence People" Achievement, you'll need to earn a perfect score (3 Stars) on the final Chapter of the "Born Fast" Horizon Story. In this Chapter, you'll race against Tristan, the leader of the Born Fast racing society.

Before you can race against Tristan, you'll first need to reach the Horizon Hall of Fame and earn the "Hall of Famer" Achievement. Once you've done this, you can return to the Born Fast Horizon Story and finish it. Tristan isn't the most difficult opponent to beat, but you'll have to beat him within a certain amount of time to earn 3 Stars. Keep an eye out for places you can cut corners to shave off precious seconds, and don't be afraid to use the "Rewind" function if you make a mistake.

If you have trouble beating Tristan in general, lowering the game's Drivatar difficulty should also make Tristan an easier opponent, but this won't increase the time to earn 3 Stars on the Chapter. Once you've beaten Tristan and the target time of 2 minutes and 25 seconds, you'll earn the "How to Race Friends and Influence People" Achievement upon returning to Freeroam.

Cover to Cover

  • Description and reward: Earn 3 Stars on all Chapters in a single Horizon Story — 20 Gamerscore

Forza Horizon 5 Achievement ImageSource: Xbox Game Studios

The "Cover to Cover" Achievement is earned for earn 3 Stars on all Chapters in any Horizon Story. You can use any Horizon Story to earn this Achievement, but keep in mind some will be easier than others. Most Horizon Stories require that you've reached the Hall of Fame in order to complete the final Chapter and have branching paths that require you to return at a later date to complete missed Chapters.

The most straightforward way to earn this Achievement is to use one of the five "Test Driver" Horizon Stories. Each of these Horizon Stories only features 3 Chapters and does not require you reach the Hall of Fame before completing them. Keep in mind, however, that Test Driver Horizon Stories tend to be a little bit more difficult to earn 3 Stars on than some of the other Horizon Stories. You only need to earn 3 Stars on all Chapters of one Test Driver Horizon Story to earn this Achievement.

If you want an easier time of it, have reached the Hall of Fame, and don't mind going back to play missed Chapters, the "Vocho," "El Camino," and "V10" Horizon stories are all pretty simple. Once you've earned 3 Stars on all Chapters of any of the Horizon Stories, you'll earn the "Cover to Cover" Achievement upon returning to Freeroam.

Tourist Attract

  • Description and reward: Complete your first Horizon Tour Race Event — 10 Gamerscore

Forza Horizon 5 Achievement ImageSource: Xbox Game Studios

Horizon Tour is one of the brand-new Race Events introduced in Forza Horizon 5, and it pits a team of six real-life players against six AI Drivatars. Horizon Tour is unique in that it encourages team work, has a low barrier for entry and success, and bridges the gap between each Race Event by having you and your team drive as a Convoy to the next location. In order to earn the "Tourist Attract" Achievement, all you need to do is complete any complete Horizon Tour Race Event.

Horizon Tour Race Events feature three parts with a rotating theme (the class of car / locations change over time), and are pretty easy to matchmake for. Completing a Horizon Tour Race Event is straightfoward and fun, and it can even net you points for the Festival Playlist.

Show Me Your Moves

  • Description and reward: Play any EventLab Event created by another player — 10 Gamerscore

Forza Horizon 5 Achievement ImageSource: Xbox Game Studios

EventLab is a suite of tools that can be used to create anything you can imagine. Playground Games built EventLab to let the community inject a neverending stream of fresh content into Forza Horizon 5, and earning the "Show Me Your Moves" Achievement just means playing any one of these Events. You can see community EventLab creations in the "Creative Hub" section of Settings, and completing any of those Events will earn you this Achievement.

EventLab Events can also occassionally be featured in the Festival Playlist, giving you another opportunity to earn the "Show Me Your Moves" Achievement. This Achievement cannot be earned by playing your own EventLab creations, but other players can earn it by playing yours!

Good Carma

  • Description and reward: Give another player some Kudos to show your appreciation — 10 Gamerscore

Forza Horizon 5 Achievement ImageSource: Xbox Game Studios

Kudos is one of Forza Horizon 5's currencies, geared towards encouraging friendly interactions between players online. Think of Kudos as a social reward for when a player does something awesome in FH5. To earn the "Good Carma" Achievement, you have to gift Kudos to any player for any reason, just like other players can do for you!

You can gift Kudos to players by liking their creations and being grateful for Gift Drops and more. If you download a livery, tune, vinyl, or photo in Forza Horizon 5, be sure to give the creator a like to help boost the popularity of their creation and give them a Kudos. You can also do the same if you play an EventLab, Super7, or Create a Route creation. Finally, sending a "thank you" message when you receive a Gift Drop will also send Kudos to the gifting player.

Album Cover

  • Description and reward: Take a photo of the 2021 Mercedes-AMG ONE for Horizon Promo — 10 Gamerscore

Forza Horizon 5 Achievement ImageSource: Xbox Game Studios

Forza Horizon 5 features a pretty in-depth Photo Mode, which allows players to take awesome-looking photos of their cars. To earn the "Album Cover" Achievement, you need to take a picture of the 2021 Mercedes-AMG ONE; that's right, the car that adorns the cover of Forza Horizon 5! The AMG ONE is an expensive car, coming in at a cool 2.7 million Credits in the Autoshow, so you'll likely have to wait a while in order to obtain it.

The 2021 Mercedes-AMG ONE can be obtained through Wheelspins, the Autoshow, purchasing it from another play via the Auction House, or by earning it from the Festival Playlist (this car was a series reward for Series 1). Once you've acquired the car, go into Photo Mode while driving it and take any picture of it! Once the photo processes, you'll earn the "Album Cover" Achievement.

Fit to Print

  • Description and reward: Take 50 photos of Legendary cars for Horizon Promo — 30 Gamerscore

Forza Horizon 5 Achievement Image 22bSource: Xbox Game Studios

"Fit to Print" seems like a simple Achievement at first, but it's actually quite difficult to pull off. In order to earn this Achievement, you'll need to take photos of 50 different Legendary rarity cars. Legendary cars are the most valuable of all vehicles in Forza Horizon 5, even besting the much-sought-after Forza Edition cars, so getting 50 of them for a photo shoot is no easy task.

You could wait until you've obtained 50 Legendary cars and taken a photo of each one. Legendary cars can be obtained from the Autoshow or Auction House, although they tend to be quite expensive, and can even be earned from Wheelspins and the Festival Playlist. Every Forza Horizon 5 Barn Find is a Legendary car, as well, giving you 15 if you find and restore them all.

However, there is an easier way to get the "Fit to Print" Achievement. Taking pictures of Legendary cars elsewhere in the world, even if they're not your cars, also counts towards Horizon Promo and this Achievement. The easiest way to take advantage of this is to take pictures of your opponent's cars at the beginning of every race. You can use EventLab to customize Race Event to change the car class, type, and theme, giving you a wider variety of potential vehicles. If you customize a Race Event multiple times with different cars, you should be able to find the necessary Legendary cars you need for the "Fit to Print" Achievement in no time.

Every Legendary car you photograph only counts once, so it does need to be 50 unique models. To make tracking your progress on this Achievement even easier, you can purchase the Lugar Tranquilo Player House, which gives you a shortcut for taking photos for Horizon Promo and lists every new car you photograph as you do so.

A Forza Edition to My Collection

  • Description and reward: Earn a Forza Edition car from a Wheelspin or Super Wheelspin — 10 Gamerscore

Forza Horizon 5 Achievement ImageSource: Xbox Game Studios

Unfortunately, there's no guaranteed way to earn the "A Forza Edition to My Collection" Achievement. This particular Achievement is earned whenever you gain a rare Forza Edition car after spinning a Wheelspin or Super Wheelspin, which effectively comes down to chance.

Wheelspins are earned from leveling up, redeeming Skill Points on cars, completing Accolades and Car Collection milestones, from the Festival Playlist or Forzathon Shop, and more. Wheelspins can provide tons of rewards, including credits, rare clothing items, and tons of cars. Many vehicles from the Forza Horizon 5 car list, including a ton of Forza Edition cars, can be earned through Wheelspins.

Keep playing the game and earning Wheelspins, and you're bound to get this Achievement eventually. Not every Wheelspin gives you a chance at a Forza Edition car, and not every Wheelspin that gives you the chance will actually land on the valuable car, but you're chances are definitely better than winning the lottery.

Manufacturer Affinity

  • Description and reward: Earn a Manufacturer Bonus — 10 Gamerscore

Forza Horizon 5 Achievement ImageSource: Xbox Game Studios

Forza Horizon 5 features the Car Collection, which lists practically every vehicle in the Forza Horizon 5 car list that players can own. There are dozens of manufacturers in Forza Horizon 5, and players can get bonuses for owning every car from a specific manufacturer. To earn the "Manufacturer Affinity" Achievement, you need to do exactly this.

The easiest way to do this is to navigate to the Car Collection screen and find a manufacturer that only offers one car in the game. The 1945 Willys MB Jeep is a great option, as this car only costs 40,000 Credits and immediately earns you a Manufacturer Bonus. However, it's entirely up to you how to earn this Achievement. Owning every car from any manufacturer in Forza Horizon 5 earns the "Manufacturer Affinity" Achievement. Just keep in mind that some manufacturers have Forza Edition cars, or cars that you can't easily obtain.

Related to the "Manufacturer Affinity" Achievement, "You Could Say I'm a Fan" is unlocked when you earn a Manufacturer Bonus for a manufacturer with 25 or more cars. There are only a handful of manufacturers that feature enough cars for this Achievement, notably BMW, Chevrolet, Ferrari, and Ford. Out of these four, Chevrolet is by far the easiest manufacturer collection to complete, but it still won't be cheap or easy.

All of these manufacturers feature at least one car that can only be obtained through special means like Wheelspins, including Chevy, and Ferrari and Ford are both very expensive if you're looking to purchase every possible car from the Autoshow. You can buy most of Chevy's cars from the Autoshow if you have a couple million Credits lying around, while the 1970 Chevrolet Corvette ZR-1 can only be obtained through Wheelspins (or the Auction House if you're willing to spend the money). BMW isn't as easy to obtain as Chevrolet, but those who prefer the German manufacturer can go that route.

It should be noted that this Achievement has been reported as buggy for some, so you may complete a manufacturer collection and earn your Manufacturer Bonus, but notice that the "You Could Say I'm a Fan" Achievement hasn't unlocked. Hopefully, Playground Games will fix any lingering issues here soon.
