Forza Horizon 5: Hot Dam Treasure Hunt Guide


Forza Horizon 5 Hot Dam Treasure Hunt Guide

We're week three of American Automotive in Forza Horizon 5, and the Treasure Hunts are ramping up. Hot Dam puts us in our favourite hatchback, before tasking us with jumping over an actual dam.

Our Hot Dam Treasure Hunt guide will help you break through the wall to find the treasure.

The clue for this week's Hot Dam Treasure Hunt is: “Get your Hatch back out and touch the Sierre Verde sky as you fly through the dam.” We're therefore heading off to the Sierra Verde Dam in a hot hatchback to complete this week's challenge.

You can see the dam on the map below:

With Dry Season having arrived in Forza Horizon 5, the river that usually flows through the dam has dried up. This creates a nice ramp up the west side of the dam for you to jump, just don't go too fast or you'll hit the bridge!

Once you've jumped through the dam, you'll unlock the treasure chest location. This week the chest is located by the Lugar Tranquilo player house in Playa Azul. You can see the exact chest location in the map below.

Smash the chest to claim 100k Credits and three precious progress points.
