How to Get Daredevil Skills in Forza Horizon 5

Forza Horizon 5

Need to get Daredevil skills in Forza Horizon 5 and aren’t quite sure how to unlock them? We’ve got you covered.

There are a lot of random skills you’re awarded for while driving around in Forza Horizon 5. Some for drifting, some for driving fast, some for destroying the environment (!)… you name it, there’s probably a skill for it. Most of the time, you probably don’t even notice what they’re for, as they accumulate automatically, popping up at the top of your screen and eventually generating you skill points. For some challenges, though, you may be asked to earn a specific skill. Here’s how to get Daredevil skills in Forza Horizon 5.

The Daredevil skill is an easy one to get: it’s awarded for simply driving close to other vehicles in the game. Head to the highway, put your foot down and zoom past other vehicles. Once you’ve passed three cars in close proximity, you’ll get a Daredevil skill. It goes without saying that you’ll need to avoid crashing in order for the skill to count!

The problem we’ve found when trying to get Daredevil skills in Forza Horizon 5 is that, sometimes, there’s just no other cars on the road. If you’re struggling to find AI traffic to drive alongside, try switching your game to ‘Horizon Solo’ mode. Head into main menu to activate it; it essentially takes you offline, removing online drivatars from your game.

Once we did this then fast-travelled back to the highway, we found plenty of cars driving along. Within a few seconds we’d got our first Daredevil skill.

If you’re still struggling to find traffic, toggle Horizon Solo on and off. Failing that, restart your game. Good luck!
