Forza Horizon 5 drift skills are a must-have for every player, as there are Forza Horizon 5 drift zones where you can earn points and increase driver ratings. You can also earn award XPs and accolade points which make your journey to the Horizon festival Hall of Fame quicker. This article will show you how to perfect your drifting skills and all tweaks drift-related, from the best drift settings to the most suitable cars for drifting in the drift zones. Let’s start with the drift settings you should apply.
For a start, the race settings in Forza Horizon should be set to manual to allow you to have more control and less assistance from the game. Auto-assists are not bad, you just need to tone it down or end it outrightly if you want to have more control over your drifts. To switch from auto to manual, go to Difficulty Settings in the game and change Shifting to Manual. It’s that easy. For the cars, we recommend you use race cars with rear-wheel drive (RWD). To check if your car has rear-wheel drive, check the bottom of the screen in the car stats zone.
How to Drift in FH 5
For the drift proper, start with accelerating your car. Press the ‘X’ button to shift the gears. Your car will either sway left or right, depending on the direction you are accelerating and the layout of the drift zone. To maintain the drift for a longer stretch, keep the speed on the rear wheels with the throttle so they stay spinning. You will automatically unlock the ultimate drift skill if you remain in drift speed for more than 3 seconds. The key to perfect drifting is practice, so it is fine if you don’t get it right at first. When you feel you are good enough at it, you can simply drift by making a sharp turn and applying the brakes simultaneously, that is when entering a drift zone.
Forza Horizon 5 Drift Zones
Drift Zones include challenges that can be found all across Forza Horizon 5’s Mexico roads and put the players’ drifting skills to the test. Each Drift Zone requires you to go along and stay inside a specific length of the road marked with flags. When drifting, your points will increase from zero and then halt in regular driving. When driving, you may start a drift by hitting the brakes.
You’ll need some skill to maintain a steady drift, but you’ll also need to be careful to keep your steering in check in both directions to prevent spinning out and regaining complete control. You’ll be given your final score as well as a star rating once you depart the Drift Zone. It’s easy to miss the mark in Drift Zones, which sometimes might result in your score being deleted, forcing you to start again. You may flunk if you spend a lengthy period out of the zone allotted for you, or if you stop your car. Drift Zones do not have a time restriction, but you must stay in the zone on a frequent basis to avoid missing the challenge.
With practice, you will get to drift without having to crosscheck the buttons to press, as it would become a reflex. Till then, keep practicing and share these tips with friends.
