Forza Horizon 5 Goliath Glitch | How to Earn XP AFK

Forza Horizon 5 Goliath Glitch

The racetracks of Forza Horizon 5 are extremely fun to explore. However, for players who want the most out of the game’s fantastic cosmetics, it can become a bit grindy. Cars and skins can cost you a ton of credits, and the maximum rank of FH5 can feel like it is miles away. Luckily, there was a newly discovered exploit to get you a ton of credits; the Goliath Glitch. While it is not technically a glitch, it will sure feel like one! Let’s make good use of it!

How to Earn XP while AFK with the Goliath Glitch

Forza Horizon 5 Goliath Glitch

To set up the Goliath Glitch, you’ll need to progress through the story and unlock the Goliath Race. Enter it with any car you’d like (although, you should want to use your fastest car for fast farming). Make sure your car stays on the road, and the game will complete the race for you. You will have to hold down accelerate.

In the Settings, set your difficulties to the following:

  • Drivatar: Tourist
  • Braking: Assisted
  • Steering: Auto-Steering
  • Traction Control: On
  • Stability Control: On or Off
  • Shifting: Automatic
  • Driving Line: Full
  • Damage & Tire Wear: None
  • Rewind: On

This will essentially allow your car to drive itself, all the way through the Goliath race. Even though the NPCs should beat you, you’ll still earn a ridiculous number of credits and XP for completing the race.

You will have to sit through the entire race, unlike Forza Horizon 4‘s method of grinding Goliaths. You can probably use a rubber band and make yourself some food, but there’s always a minor chance of your car getting stuck on something. Just make sure you keep an eye on your self-driving car to make sure it doesn’t get into trouble.

While this is called a Glitch, it’s not really much of one. It’s using the game’s fantastic accessibility features to decrease the amount of time that you’re grinding for cash. And you’ll still need a fast car if you want to max out wheelspins. So you’re still doing everything that the game asks of you!
