Lead Dog Achievement

  • Lead Dog

     

    25

    Lead for a total of 1000 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.

  • Typo? Not to further increase the grind we're all going to need to go through but if 500 miles is 20G than it seems they left a 0 out for this achievement since all others were in chronological order prior to this achievement. Nonetheless, the list is very uninspiring and just looks quite woeful currently. Hope the added dev achievements will be much better!
  • @1 yeah, it's lead for 1000 miles not 100. Basically 78 laps of the Nürburgring. (About 10 hours)
  • I have not played forza since 2 or 3 (3 I think). Can this be done in private matches? IE can I 1v1 a friend so we always are working towards it?
  • @3 yes, or you can just use AI set to easy difficulty.
  • It is possible to boost this. add me if interested. GT: kitchwah
  • I'm already at 250. So this shouldn't be too hard really. Just a bit of a grind and being patient.
  • Yeah this achievement is for leading 1000 miles, not 100. Needs to be updated.
  • Realy easy on the drag strip, try my VW beetle tune, do a few runs in decent lobby, helps 2wards medal cheeve aswell, .GT bushanting
  • This is fairly easy if you got a buddy. Go to Indianapolis Motor Speedway change the track to oval. Set up a race on easy, pick however many laps you want and just take turns winning and leading. I got a buddy that likes to talk about stuff so we been doing this for an hour or two on Saturdays and were almost done with it. Of coarse you could just sit there and do it all day but my way there is no grind.
  • 4 hours on leman track with lotus ... easy single multiplayer lap
  • Make private match/55 laps on Old Le Mans Prototype cars are perfect/Think I was getting like 3:50 a lap.

  • this achievement is super easy on Drag - Unlimited. I have created a BMW 2002 Turbo design and tune, which gets 8.4 second 1/4 mile, and will win a medal 99% of the time, it also gets you the winning multiplayer very easily and quickly. I would appreciate if you used them and they will benefit you. the tune is called 1 mile drag, by DanAsker, and the design is called Tap Rally.
