Forza Horizon 5 Daredevil

Forza Horizon 5’s popularity still rages with as we head into its one month mark. Now that most grinding is out of the way, it is time for the fun stuff. Many players are risking it all, doing stunts and other crazy antics. One of these appears to be the Forza Horizon 5 Daredevil challenge, requiring you to perform three near misses in a short space of time.

If you fancy becoming the Forza Horizon 5 Daredevil, we will go through and guide you through the event, listing great cars and locations to beat the feat.

What is the Forza Horizon 5 Daredevil challenge?

The Forza Horizon 5 Daredevil challenge is one of the most dangerous challenges in the game. It requires you to perform three near misses back to back in a short space of time. For those who played Forza Horizon 4, you may remember that this challenge existed back then.

So, what’s the catch about this challenge for Horizon 5? Well, you’re no longer driving around the cityscape that is Britain. You’re in a Mexican desert, surrounded by ancient ruins and active volcanos. It doesn’t precisely scream population density. So, with the context established, here are our recommendations for beating the challenge.

How to get the Forza Horizon 5 Daredevil challenge

Okay, since the game has quite an open map, for the most part, we highly recommend the following locations:

  1. Lugar Tranquillo – Player House on the coastal town at the east coast
  2. El Estadio – Circular shaped arena that allows you to run laps around, finding cars to skirt around fairly easily.
  3. The Marathon Street race- The Marathon Street race location is just off the main motorway that runs through the centre of the map.

These three locations are the most likely places you’ll find the traffic you need to complete the challenge if you want to beat it. The reasons why is down to several reasons. Take the first one. It is the only real urban area on the map. There are several ways you can go about it. You can start at the player house or work your way up from the south to start the Canyon Expedition. That area is where you also start the Goliath race if you want a better reference on where to complete it. We think this is the best et for beating the challenge.

In terms of the cars you want, we recommend something that is designed for the urban street. You want speed and control, so you can make it dangerous and perform sharp turns without spinning or crashing into the poor soul about to get spooked by your high-speed maniacal driving.

So, what cars qualify for that metric. We reckon the best cars for the challenge are sports cars or drifting cars. We recommend the following cars to make it easier, though any car can actually do the challenge.

  1. Porsche 918 Spyder.
  2. 2011 BMW X5 M Forza Edition.
