Follow Me Achievement

    5

    Lead for a total of 50 miles in Multiplayer races.

    This achievement can be earned with another human in the lobby if you are working on the multiplayer medals, or with Drivatars in a private multiplayer lobby. Leading in private or public matches counts toward the achievement. The achievement will unlock at the end of the race in which you reach the miles needed.

    As of this writing, there is a bug in the game in how it calculates distance in the lead while in a drag race. If you use the settings below, you can earn all of the "Lead for xx miles" achievements in about 20 minutes.

    From the main Forza screen, choose Multiplayer, press to create a private match and to confirm. Once the vehicle selection screen opens, choose a car that is rated B or below. At this point you will be in the lobby. Press to change the options to match these choices:
    Game Type: Drag
    Track: 2-player 1/4-mile drag
    Max Players: 2
    Max Drivatars: 1
    Drivatar Difficulty: New Racer
    Heats: 10
    Car Class: Any
    Under Advanced Options, set the End of Race Timer to 5 seconds

    When you go back to the lobby, the Drivatar will have a class of car that matches yours. Press to go back into the settings and change your car to the highest rated vehicle you have. You will end up back in the lobby with your fast car racing against the lower rated vehicle the Drivatar is using, making the drag race basically an automatic win. If you press as soon as the Post-Race screen appears, it will take approximately 4-5 minutes to complete the 10 heats, at which point you will be back in the lobby. Press to restart the process.


    If the drag race method gets patched, you can use the following method instead:

    From the main Forza screen, choose Multiplayer, press to create a private match and to confirm. Once the vehicle selection screen opens, choose a fast car that you are comfortable in (and preferably one that you want to rank up the affinity rating on to simultaneously work toward Factory Legend). At this point you will be in the lobby, so press to change the options to match these choices:
    Game Type: Circuit Race
    Environment: Indianapolis
    Track: Indianapolis Oval
    Max Players: 2
    Max Drivatars: 1
    Drivatar Difficulty: Set this to what you normally race at. If you set it too far down such that you are lapping the AI too many times, the developer has controls in place that can give you no credit for the game and it will waste your time.
    Laps: 50 (depending on the top speed of your vehicle, 50 laps should take 40-80 minutes, so if you have less time, choose fewer laps)
    Damage: Cosmetic
    Collision Mode: Always Off
    Car Class: Any

    When you go back to the lobby, press to start the race. The achievement will unlock at the end of the race in which you meet the distance led criteria.

Comments
  • The achievements for leading a certain amount of mileage in multiplayer races are easy to unlock. Just start a private match and add any amount of drivatars you want and simply race against the drivatars and lead the whole time. To make it easier just set the difficulty of the drivatars very low.
  • Can you use drivatars for all the multiplayer racing achievements???
