#forzathon Updates

I figured enough of us play and care about them, but some of us may miss them…

February 14th only:
Valentine’s Day
February 14th is Valentine’s Day, and with it comes a special one-day only Forzathon event. Perform 20 Air Skills for the ‘Something In The Air’ challenge to unlock 3 Wheelspins, while completing a co-op race with your best friend (wink, wink) will earn you the Nissan Silvia S14 in the ‘Date Night’ challenge. The Forzathon ‘Be Mine’ challenge requires you to beat an in-game Rival to win the ’70 Chevelle Horizon Edition car, while completing a game of Flag Rush earns you 50,000 Credits.

February 17 to 20
Look What We Found!
Following Valentine’s Day is the ‘Look What We Found!’ Forzathon, where you can win that very special Lola T70! The event lasts from Friday, February 17th through to Monday, February 20th.
Winning a Championship in the Ferrari Dino unlocks you 3 Wheelspins, while completing 5 Head-to-Head Races in a Ford earns you 15,000 XP. Completing any event will bag you 30,000 Credits – very simple indeed, while completing an Online Adventure in an International Scout or Holden FX Ute wins you the Lola #6 Penske Sunoco T70!

February 21
Speed Machine
Another one-day only Forzathon has arrives this month in the form of ‘Speed Machine’ on February 21st, the day after the ‘Look What We Found!’ event concludes. In this one, you can win the very special Ferrari 599X, the most anticipated Forza Horizon 3 vehicle this month, but to unlock it, you’ll need to complete all the other challenges available on this day first.
Let’s take a look:

  • Firstly, winning a Race in a Ferrari of your choice earns you 10,000 Credits in the ‘Gallop Out’ challenge.
  • Proud Challenger sees you completing an Online Race in a Ferrari to receive another 10,000 Credits.
  • You don’t have to win this one. The ‘Groundwork’ Forzathon requires you to complete a Bucket List Challenge in a Ferrari to win another 10,000 Credits.
  • Once you complete all three of these ‘Speed Machine’ challenges, the Ferrari 599X will be yours with the ‘Trifecta’ challenge! Not too difficult at all! Just make sure you log in on February 21st!

February 24 to 27
Closing The Door
The last of the weekend Forzathon events starts on Friday, February 24th and lasts through Monday, February 27th. Getting 3 Stars on a Speed Zone in a Classic Muscle Car gives you 20,000 Credits in the ‘Hard Charging’ event, while ‘Butting Heads’ requires to you win 5 Head-to-Head Races for 25,000 XP. Performing a ‘Clean Start’ at the beginning of any race unlocks the Arooga 2 Horn in the ‘Keeping It Clean’ challenge, while in ‘Taking Out The Trash,’ you’ll need to perform 30 Trashman Skills to win 3 Wheelspins.

February 28
Shooting Stars
Last, but not least, we have the ‘Shooting Stars’ Forzathon event on February 28th. Not only is this the last one one-day Forzathon of the month, but this is also the final overall event in February. This time, however, you’ll have the chance to win the #75 Subaru VT15r Rally car, a vehicle that was up for grabs in January’s Forzathon, but players couldn’t unlock it immediately due it not being updated in the game on time for the event.This was later corrected and awarded to players who did complete the required challenge, but due to the issue, Turn 10 has decided to run another event for the vehicle. This car is also different to the 2016 Subaru #199 WRX STI VT15r Rally Carfound in the Blizzard Mountain Expansion.

Firstly, completing a Race in a Subaru will give you 50,000 Credits in the ‘Factory-Backed’ Forzathon event. Then ‘In It Together’ requires you to complete an Online Race to earn 25,000 XP, while completing any event wins you the #75 Subaru VT15r Rally car. No excuses not to unlock this car, the challenge literally wants you to finish a Race, or a Bucket List Challenge, and PR Stunts may even be included as well. Overall, playing Forza Horizon 3 on February 28th should bag you these challenges!

You forgot @ForzaPlayers
