There is only one essential method by which players can earn skill points and that is with the help of building and banking skill chains. These skill chains in Forza Horizon 5 can be created in many ways. These include drifting, hitting objects, doing specific turns, and catching air.
Additionally, players can earn up to 10 skill points for each skill chain. So, as soon as you reach 500,000, bank the skill chain and get skill points in return. To stop a skill chain from increasing and ending it, players need to stop earning points. They can do this by not crashing their car and coming to a halt.

Well, there is a trick that helps you earn that number without actually putting in a lot of effort. If you choose the right kind of car which has a multiplier for skill chain as a perk in its masteries, then you reach as little as 63,000 points.

Which is the best car to earn skill points in Forza Horizon 5?
There is a clever way to reacher a higher number when banking a skill chain. And that is by using a car that has a multiplier for skill chains.
This is why there are some cars which are better for farming skill points. According to us, the best car is Hoonicorn Mustang as it has the highest skill point multiplier i.e. a multiplier of 8.
What is the best way to farm Skill Points?
Based on our experience, one of the best ways to farm skill points in Forza Horizon 5 is with the help of a drift tune (which can be downloaded or made). And a car whose ×8 multiplier has been unlocked. This way you will only have to build up a score of 63,000 and get the benefits of a 500,000 points skill chain. However, a ×7 multiplier will also work as you only need 71, 428 points to make it 500,000.
Begin the skill chain by drifting off the road and on asphalt. Then continue hitting small objects and drifting in order to reach your target score. If you perform any special tricks while drifting, you are bound to make your skill chain score higher.
The Best Area to Earn Skill Points in Forza Horizon 5
Some areas are better than others to earn skill points in Forza Horizon 5. The best areas, according to us, are the Forza horizon 5 drift zones. This is because drifting is an essential part of building skill chains to earn skill points.
One such great area for farming skill points is an airstrip located in the southwestern area of the map. This is present in the La Selva region. What makes this area special is that it has a huge runway with plenty of small objects for players to hit on as they drift. Moreover, it doesn’t even have any traffic so you can earn lots of points very fast. Also, this airstrip has a drag race. And drag races are perfect for players to enjoy and show off their fast cars. They are also ideal for earning lots of skill points as it’s easier to build a skill chain on a drag race.
There is another way to speed up farming skill points using the drag race as well. It can be achieved by beginning a skill chain and ending it at the start point of the drag race. But remember to exit for the race begins. This way no time will be taken for the skill chain to bank.
Finally, repeat this method again and again to earn a maximum of 10 skill points each minute. Once you have earned lots of skill points in Forza Horizon 5, use them on any car of your choice and unlock perks.
