How to get the Daredevil skill in Forza Horizon 5

You daredevil.

Like for most skillsets, Forza Horizon 5 does not explain how to acquire Daredevil skills—the newest weekly challenge. Therefore, you could accidentally unlock Daredevil skills by performing three Near Misses with other vehicles in a short amount of time. Forza Horizon 5's fictional Mexico lacks crowded areas, making Daredevil skills one of the hardest to achieve outside of races.

To get Daredevil skill, a driver must be going around 100 mph and get very close to a car and not hit it (Near Misses) three times in a short period. This requires you to find a highway or long stretch of road. Performing Near Misses at high speeds without collisions will take time to get right, so be ready to crash a few times.

There are two ways you can get Near Misses with relative ease:

  1. You can unlock them by selecting "Horizon Solo" from the Online menu.
    • Go to Guanajuato, and you will find more AI cars, so Daredevil skills will be easier to earn.
  2. We prefer to do this during races, preferably during cross-country events, which are more open and have wider tracks.
    • It's so much easier to almost hit cars in races.
