Here we are, another week and time for another Forza Horizon 3 #Forzathon event! The Forza Horizon 3 #Forzathon August 3-9th event gives you a chance to pick up the usual XP, Credits, Wheelspins, and the Lamborghini Huracan HE (Horizon Edition). In case you missed the update earlier this year, Forza Horizon 3 is also playable in 4K 30fps glory after the recent Xbox One X Enhanced patch for all you Xbox One X owners out there.
This Forza Horizon 3 #Forzathon event started on August 3rd at 12:01 a.m. PT and closes at 11:59 pm PT on August 9th so you have until the wee hours of August 10th (depending on your time zone) in order to complete the challenges.
Check out the complete task list and rewards below:
- Fortunate Flyer: Perform 10 Ebisu Style Skills to win the Lamborghini Huracan HE
- Speedy Stallion: Complete a Race in a Lamborghini to win 3 Wheelspins
- Turvy Topsy: Perform 5 Barrel Rolls to receive 55,000 XP
- Heavy Heels: Complete 10 Hard Charger skills to receive 40,000 CR
From the looks of it, while still pretty easy, there are some more difficult skills this week to perform. For the Ebisu Style skill, you’ll need to chain together a Great Drift Skill with a Great Air Skill and then another Great Drift Skill. In other words, you need to start a drift, make a jump while drifting, and land while keeping the drift alive. The best spot for this is south of the airport in the dune area. Repeat this 10 times and you’ll score yourself the Lamborghini Huracan HE.
Fortunately, the second task is super easy. Simply set up a one lap race, hop into a Lamborghini, and once you’ve completed it (you don’t have to win) you’ll snag your three Wheelspins for the week.
Barrel Rolls can be tricky as well. The easiest way to do this is to head over to the Timber Mill in Kiewa Valley just to the east of Maroondah Reservoir and launch those Barrel Rolls off the stacked lumber jumps. With any luck, you’ll get five in short order, netting you the bonus XP.
The Hard Charger skills aren’t terribly bad either, just pick a fast car, and head over to the airport. Start with a Burnout skill followed by any speed skill within 35 seconds and you should pop a Hard Charger skill. Repeat 10 times to receive your extra credits for this week.
