Last week, Brian Ekberg, Forza’s Community Manager, confirmed this is the last Forza Horizon 3 #Forzathon.

Welp, here we are with the final Forza Horizon 3 #Forzathon. Last week, Brian Ekberg, Forza’s Community Manager, confirmed this is the last Forza Horizon 3 #Forzathon.

Next week we’re introducing the final set of #Forzathon events into Forza Horizon 3. These events will go live on February 8 and, unlike previous #Forzathon events which rewarded cars, credits or XP in Forza Horizon 3, this final batch of events will award achievements, each worth 125 Gamerscore points. Each #Forzathon event/achievement (and subsequent Gamerscore reward) can only be earned once.

The Forza Horizon 3 #Forzathon February 8th — and final — event gives you a chance at 500 more gamerscore spread across four new achievements. The four new “challenges” will, of course, be live indefinitely. While you’re at it, don’t forget to check out this week’s Forza Horizon 4 #Forzathon challenges.

Into the Horizon #Forzathon

Check out the complete achievement list below:

  • Cleaning Up the Festival: Complete 1000 Races or Snowman Skills
  • See You Horizon Boss: Complete 1500 Races or Kangaroo Skills
  • The Final Tour: Complete 2000 Races or “Hot Wheels” Skills
  • And Thanks For all the Drifts: Complete 2500 Races or Ultimate Skills

The good news is, if you’ve completed 2500 races over the years, you’ll insta-pop all these. On that note, that’s a pretty tall order. Even though I have some 350 hours into the game, I only popped Cleaning Up the Festival and The Final Tour so chances are, you’ll have some work to do.

Once you complete each achievement, you’ll snag 125GS.

Cleaning Up the Festival

As with the rest of these achievements, this can be done in combination. Either complete 1000 races or Snowman skills or a combination of both. As far as races go, you could try to grind out Drag Races. For Snowman Skills, head to Blizzard Mountain and drive around taking out snowmen.

See You Horizon Boss

If you’re not into grinding out races, you can pick up Kangaroo Skills in the dunes south of the airport. Simply hop over the dunes joining Air Skills to get Kangaroo Skills.

The Final Tour

“Hot Wheels” Skills are completed in the Hot Wheels DLC expansion. Normally an air skill above the Ultimate Jump, nightw0lf discovered that Hot Wheel specific skills like Speed Boosts also count. Head over to the Half Pipe Climb circuit race in the Thrill City area (lower left of the map) just southwest of the Beach Blast Danger Sign. Choose Stunt Swap blueprint, swap out the stunt for a Boost Jump and proceed around the track. You’ll soon get to a point where you’ll Boost, Jump for a Hot Wheels jump skill, and then another Speed Boost. Once you see the second Speed Boost pop up, rewind and repeat. According to nightw0lf, you’ll get about 1% progress (21 skills) in just under 2 minutes.

So Long and Thanks for All the Drifts

This one may seem daunting with 2500 Races or Ultimate Skills as the target but there are plenty of Ultimate skills to be achieved. Everything from Ultimate Drifts to Ultimate Speed to Ultimate Air will count towards this achievement.
