#FORZATHON Live events start at the top of every hour. They will appear on the map as a big pink circle 10 minutes before it starts, and you will get a notification on screen 5 minutes before it starts. Drive to the circle and wait before it hits the top of the hour, and you will be included in the event. Then just complete all 3 rounds to finish the event. Do this twice more in consecutive hours (Ex: doing the 5:00, 6:00, and 7:00 event) to complete the achievement.

When doing the event, please participate in all rounds. It's no fun when 3-4 people are doing all the work and 10+ are just sitting around waiting.
WyyvernThe circle on the map stays there for three minutes after the start, so you can afford to be a bit late.

Issues that can arise from Live events include being disconnected midway through them (happened to me twice in a row today), and there being too little players to complete all three events, given the targets would be impossibly high. Will need someone to confirm you don't need to complete all three each time, otherwise this can be pretty luck-based.

FullNietzscheI fully completed 3 but it didn't pop, I had to do a 4th hour as well.

Another thing people may not know is you can use fast travel during the events, so to save time when the next destination is a few miles away I always do that. Also on jump events it can sometimes take a while to drive back to the top but with fast travel you can save loads of time.

el p1nkoDidn‘t know about the fast travel, good advice!
What you can also do is change the cars, so you can use the Agera RS for the speed trap and the Jeep Willis for the drift events.
Also for the speed traps it is beyond me why everyone just drives a mile away to gain speed - the quickest way to do this is just turn around immediately after the speed trap or even go in reverse and drive through the trap in reverse, you can contribute 5x as much doing this - especially good if the number of players is very small.

NapalmNikoDo I have to be online for the 3 session in a row ? Or can I change the game between the hours ?
Posted by NapalmNiko on 12 Mar 19 at 23:37
el p1nkoCannot say if you can start a different game than FH4 in the meantime, but you do not have to be within the same Horizon online session, that is for sure.

ALLSETFORMOVESay, if I disconnected in the middle, does it still count as I attended 3 consecutive live events?

yxkillzAs long as you do 3 consecutive hours you'll get the cheevo. I did 3 events with a game crash between the 2nd and 3rd event and still got the achievement.
Posted by yxkillz on 13 Mar 19 at 08:08
BipeFlyerDid 3 and no cheevo. Tracker at 66%. Unfortunately don’t have time to do a 4th. Will have to try again another time.
Posted by BipeFlyer on 13 Mar 19 at 14:23
Mince lfcI've completed 4 in a row and tracker still stuck at 66%...
Edit: unlocked the 5th time, definitely glitched
Posted by Mince lfc on 13 Mar 19 at 17:33
HolyHalfDeadAs others have said, getting 3 in a row completed is going to be a pain/luck. I often only get 2 of the activities done before the time runs out. Throw in a Drift Zone and it’s the kiss of death. I will give it a go for 9 hours by myself, otherwise I might create a 3 hour session on TA.

I’m thinking that doing this at the start of a new season may be best as some people will be grinding out FP for the rewards.
Posted by HolyHalfDead on 13 Mar 19 at 19:37
Viva VizionzI did 2 and got 66% then changed to halo wars 2 and the third did not count. So I guess you need to stay in the game for all 3 events.

tjw CENA2000Okay, I got this today. Gotta complete all rounds of Forzathon for all 3, an you must complete 3 in a row. So if you did one at 1:00 then your next one is at 2:00 an then 3:00. If you skip one, or fail 1 of them, then the progress will restart to 0 an you'll have to try an do 3 of them in a row again.
When I did my 1st one, I turned off the xbox after I completed it, got back on the game 40 mins later just before the second one started it, an completed it, along with the 3rd event an the achievement popped. So you can turn the xbox off an wait till the next one starts. Might be able to play a different game in the meantime. As long if you don't forget about getting back on 10 mins before the event starts for the hour

BonxyGood solution.

I did mine in one sitting and the achievement tracker increased after everyone. Worked flawlessly.
Posted by Bonxy on 14 Mar 19 at 13:27
I had a problem yesterday I played 2 forzathon and in 3 I miss the game and the achievement stayed at 66%, today I played 3 forzathon in a row and the achievement did not pop and the achievement was 66%, someone has happened to him?
Edit: I just played the Forzathon today at 3:00 pm and the achievement has been unlocked, as if I had saved the Forzathon at 3:00 pm, from yesterday to today

Nightmare Clowni cant seem to fucking join a session sometimes and always diconnect after completing a forzathon.
Posted by Nightmare Clown on 14 Mar 19 at 20:02
Xardas945I'm stuck at 66% after completing 3 forzathons in a row twice, will try again tomorrow. The last patch isn't enough, need another one for new glitcheslaugh
Posted by Xardas945 on 14 Mar 19 at 23:26
CheezNCrackerzI completed 2 in a row. failed the 3rd one at round 3 because it was only me and 2 others.. while still in the same session i attempted a 4th one and won and the achievement still did not unlock :/
Posted by CheezNCrackerz on 15 Mar 19 at 04:14
IdenicIt wouldn't unlock because they weren't consecutive
Posted by Idenic on 15 Mar 19 at 07:42
NMANOZI want to give everyone a tip. If you are in a session with very little people, just start any race and quit out. After a few minutes you will be put in another session, likely with far more people.
Posted by NMANOZ on 15 Mar 19 at 09:07
Lt T PeckIt popped for me after completing 5 in a row, immediately upon restart after powering down my console. Maybe try that if it doesn't appear straight away. 🤷‍♂️
Posted by Lt T Peck on 16 Mar 19 at 03:21
Patt3rsonCan confirm as well that it is fine to leave the game in between events. I did two in one sitting, just doing some Adventures in between, and left the game to play something else in between the second and third event. I came back 10 minutes before its start, completed it and the Achievement popped right away.

REDWINGS05So not sure if it a bug or not but I was playing for 2 hours today and never had an event come up. checked the map every hour for the event to be there and nothing. Anyone know what I might be doing wrong. tried switching sessions and still no help
Posted by REDWINGS05 on 16 Mar 19 at 17:02
NoHeroes94REDWING05 - you may have disconnected from Horizon Live. It's been happening to me a lot lately.

ol ALEXKING loMan I really hate this achievement so much.. only needed one more but failed and now have to start all over, had over 25 people in the session but only 3 people came in and helped. I literally wasted 3 hours on this bullshit achievement. angry
Posted by ol ALEXKING lo on 17 Mar 19 at 08:21
REDWINGS05NoHeroes94-I checked on the main menu several times leading up too and past the 10 minutes, it said I was in one the whole time. Idk maybe the servers are having issues
Posted by REDWINGS05 on 17 Mar 19 at 12:51
NagnirnahsJust a heads up, it may be better for you to keep switching sessions every time, just in time to join the next Forzathon, i.e at 11:56 go to the place where the next Forzathon Will take place, and if you see no one there, quickly change sessions :) you should be placed into another one with more active players. If you try to get the three events on the same session it may be harder due to people there maybe playing other events, races or maybe just afk.

ResinousHashishfirst time failed on the 3rd event round 3, today, I completed all 3 events, achievement didn't pop
Posted by ResinousHashish on 17 Mar 19 at 23:49
EvrClr666Well, seems every time I do the 3rd one there's always more people not participating. Really frustrating when we're within 3,00-4,000 points in a danger zone. Guess I'll try another day.
Posted by EvrClr666 on 18 Mar 19 at 00:18
illdizzogI also completed all events on all three and didn't get the achievement. No idea when I'm gonna get the chance to compete in 3 in a row again. I'll always welcome more game content but between this and the unranked Free-for-All Adventure achievement no unlocking - stictly from an achievement perspective - this is bullshit.
Posted by illdizzog on 20 Mar 19 at 09:13
F1 VikingYep unlocked on my 5th hour rather than third.
Posted by F1 Viking on 23 Mar 19 at 08:04
ResinousHashishthird try, got it after completing 3....
Posted by ResinousHashish on 23 Mar 19 at 18:05
Funky MonkeeGame crashed 30 seconds from completing the third event. yay...
Posted by Funky Monkee on 03 Apr 19 at 11:16
MI1BURNYep ... stuck on 66%
Tried to do it again without closing the game at all. Still nothing. When I did it the first time, on the 3rd forzathon, just about to start and the server crashed and was unable to connect. I imagine because of that I'm unable to complete this.

Anyone found a work around ?
Posted by MI1BURN on 04 Apr 19 at 07:10
Lord AgriusTwice today the servers disconnect me when trying to do this. Disconnected on my third forzathon... great. Thanks game...
Posted by Lord Agrius on 19 Apr 19 at 18:40
w0ut69Worked great, I just played a Forzathon live event at 12:00, then watched some Netflix on the Xbox app. Came back at 12:50 and the event started at 13:00. Then watched some Netflix again and came back at 13:50, played and completed all events and the achievement popped. Great solution!
Posted by w0ut69 on 25 Apr 19 at 12:26
Loadme TacosUnlocked today on my first try. 3 consecutive forzathon and 2 hours... and some week challenges between then. Success.

The Krypteia x9Will this not unlock if you're doing the events on Fortune Island? I did 3 in a row there and nothing
Posted by The Krypteia x9 on 06 May 19 at 00:06
The Krypteia x9Nvm, late pop
Posted by The Krypteia x9 on 06 May 19 at 00:07
planchetflawStuck going to 66% and the third never pops it. Grr. Did 4 in a row.

Late edit: Eventually I was able to get this one after a few attempts of 3 in a row. It's possible that if there are server issues, the streak gets reset. The day I was doing it and it not working, so were a few people saying the same. So if it fails for you and you get stuck at 66%, try again the next day.
Posted by planchetflaw on 23 May 19 at 03:33
khan800Done three forzathons in a row the last two days, tracker at 33%, Yesterday all in one sitting, not playing other games in between hours, today quit between forzathons, still nothing. Unobtainable here, just not wasting anymore time with this.
Posted by khan800 on 26 May 19 at 19:17
eXistenZ8Just a Tip:

I tried this for a few weeks.. nothing.
i was having a lot of issues with this.
Servers Not saving progress, and mainly Forzathon not even showing up like it should.

So, i Went to Fortune Island, and got it first time!
No issues, no glitches.

Works great, sucks for everybody else that didnt buy the DLC though...
Posted by eXistenZ8 on 15 Jun 19 at 20:04
HieronimusDid this first try today. First one on the mainland, then quickly switched to Fortune Island since no one joined the second time around. So this definitely works if there are not enough players in the base game.

愛野 美奈子this achievement sucks did 2 hrs in a row all 3 rounds then 3rd hr only had 3 other ppl and one of em went afk last round failing it -_- angry
Posted by 愛野 美奈子 on 17 Jun 19 at 19:21
愛野 美奈子AGAIN!!!! 3rd one 2ppl go afk in round 3 and we barely fail last round angry angryangry
Posted by 愛野 美奈子 on 17 Jun 19 at 22:16
Whats a ChundyThis is clearly glitched if you do it on Lego Valley. I've now done 3 back to back attempts twice. The first attempt we completed 2-3-3 events, and the second we did 2-2-2. Do you need to get past round 3 three times in a row?

Does anyone know how to report an achievement as buggy? This is a textbook example of one.

DAN5KI97Beware of stupid C***S not joining in angry Did the first 2 fine then failed the last because of it angryangry

Tendoman77I'm suffering now because of lazy-arsed morons too, I gotten on my 3rd Forzathon in a row quite a few times now but always fallen at the last hurdle. This is getting annoying..
Posted by Tendoman77 on 06 Sep 19 at 16:27
LockieSo sick of people not joining in on the 3rd event. angry If only one person registers for the event then it should balance the tasks so that the targets are doable for one person.
Posted by Lockie on 31 Jan at 03:15
LockieOkay I got it on Fortune Island without too much effort. The island is pretty small so having 60 people crammed on it means it's more likely some will participate in the events rather than ignore them.
Posted by Lockie on 30 Mar at 13:33
The Last FlightIt's pretty much impossible to complete one Forzathon Live now with randoms, let alone three. Decided to join one event for the hell of it and there was only one other person there. No one seems to join these anymore. In fact, I can't remember the last time I completed Round 3 of an event. It's best to setup a gaming session and convoy for this now if anyone reading this still needs the achievement.
Posted by The Last Flight on 03 Apr at 02:20
ChettlarCan confirm that you don't have to have the game running for the full 3 hours. I'm on PC. I was working on homework in between each one, and my computer couldn't run the stuff I needed to without closing the game. The second #FORZATHON my game took forever to start, but I was able to join it on round 2 (I think I barely got there in the nick of time; it was nowhere near any fast travel points for me), and still was able to join and help us barely finish it (it gave us two of the harder ones and we didn't have a full group). On the third one I was there from the beginning and it popped for me once we completed it.

The second one was really infuriating due to people just sitting around. We only got it with a minute to spare and if I hadn't been there we genuinely wouldn't have gotten it. But the second one was when I had the most people, like four just sitting there. Like come on people. I know the game probably doesn't boot you from the server right away for inactivity since it's supposed to be seamless with singleplayer sorta, but they could at least make it to where if you haven't interacted with the objective in a #FORZATHON for the past minute you are ineligible for rewards. Cuz I got there late that second one but I still helped out a lot. Meanwhile people there the whole time doing nothing still get the points.
