Again, for this guide we have created a video and for your convenience, below we will outline every step you need to follow to get more Skill Points as fast as possible in Forza Horizon 3.
Forza Horizon 3 Skill Points are very important because they allow you to unlock and buy new perks; hence, you should try these methods as soon as you can.
From the beginning, you should know that the more skill perks you buy the more skill points you will get in the game while using our guide.
As you can see in the video there are four special locations where you can farm Skill Points in Forza Horizon 3.
The first location (pictured above) is the highway which connects the Outback and Surfers Paradise.
To farm Skill Points here you need a fast car, such as Bugatti Veyron, Ferrari F12tdf, Hennessey Venom GT, Koenigsegg One:1, Koenigsegg Regera or any other car that can easily output more than 300 KM/h. You can even use a cheaper S1 car or a lower tier car that has been upgraded to have a higher speed index.
Once you get the car, visit the Outback area and start driving on the highway towards Surfers Paradise, or the other way around.
The trick is to run as fast as you can, without hitting any of the obstacles on the road. However, most of the points don’t come from doing a high speed bonus, instead you accumulate a lot of ultimate near misses while travelling at that speed.
To earn Skill Points even faster, try doing this during a Skill Song and after you buy some of the following perks: Risk Taker, Passing the Pack, Wombo Combo, Skill Legend, Skills Boss, Hang On, Skill Shortcut.
This method however, is for those with high driving skills.
If you prefer moving at lower speed and get more combos, then you should check the banana fields in Yarra Valley (pictured below).
Before going there, get a car powerful enough to smash the banana trees at normal to high speed. A car that weighs too little or has an insane acceleration won’t do good in the fields.
Now, all that’s left to do is to drive around hitting trees while drifting and driving as fast as you can so you don’t lose the combo.
Again, try doing this while a Skill Song is playing and after you unlock some or all of the following skills: Horizon Skill Song, Addicted to Destruction, Love Tap, Pilot Wings, Drift Star, Radio Star, Wombo Combo, Skill Legend, Skills Boss, Hang On and Skill Shortcut.
The next area where you can farm Skill Points is located west of Outback Horizon Festival, and it is also known as Pink Lakes (see below). It is the same area you will have to visit while looking for one of the Barn Finds.
This region is good for farming because at high speed you will be able to perform chained jumps, so make sure you drive a fast but stable vehicle. Moreover, the area is filled with destructible bushes, thus you can’t easily break the combo even when you turn around to do another run.
Last but not least we have the fourth area which is the Redstone Airport. It is the perfect spot to farm points using drifts because the airport runways don’t have traffic and are wide enough to allow performing drifts.
Chain them using a BMW for example and you will farm skill points faster. Or even a better car for drifting is a 1974 Toyota Celica GT that’s been properly tuned to drift.
An important fact you should be aware of is that you can’t bank more than 300.000 points, so when your multiplier hits 300K stop farming. Continue only after your points are safely stored.
If you are lucky enough, although this rarely happens, you will trigger a Skill Song while listening the Timeless radio station. Some of the songs aired by the said station are very long (10 minutes or even more), which means that for 10 minutes you will have the skills boost multiplier active.
But, again, you need to be very lucky.
