Forza Horizon 5 infinite money glitch: How to earn money without Willys Jeep

A Forza Horizon 5 exploit that allowed players to buy and sell jeeps for unlimited money has been patched by Playground Games.

Forza Horizon 5 players were using an exploit involving Willys jeep which lets them repeat a simple process and pocket the cash as they went. A hotfix, released on November 17, 2021, has removed the exploit so that players can no longer repeat this process for unlimited cash in Forza Horizon 5.

Those who took advantage of the exploit while it worked will get to keep their ill-gotten gains, however, as the devs can only patch the exploit itself, not the money earned from doing it. Therefore, those who made millions of credits by upgrading and dumping Willys jeeps can rest easy. However, you’ll be unable to use the trick again – but you can still earn plenty with a new trick.

How the Forza Horizon 5 exploit worked

Players would buy Willys jeep for 40,000 credits, fully upgrade it, and then receive the Super Wheelspin reward. This allowed players to earn rewards, one being over a million credits or cars worth insane money, over and over again.

Essentially, players are guaranteed an epic reward after fully upgrading their jeep. After doing so, these players would then just sell the jeep to another player which allows them to recoup the skill points they spent on it, which they can then use again.

However, since the patch, this trick no longer works as players can no longer regain their points after getting rid of their jeep, nor can they earn multiple Super Wheelspins from this method.

It was only ever a matter of time until this exploit was patched out of Forza Horizon 5 by the developers, but many players will already have earned millions of credits from it.

Are there more Forza Horizon money exploits?

With the Willys jeep exploit removed from the game, the next car upgrade for easy Super Wheelspins would be the Pontiac Firebird. In truth, this isn’t an exploit, but it’s still an effective way to get easy Super Wheelspins by legitimate means.

It takes 14 Skill Points to earn a Super Wheelspin, where Willys jeep only took 5, and the cost is only 25,000 credits. Therefore you’re likely to still make your money back in a Super Wheelspin unless you’re very unlucky. The same tactic can also be used on the Porsche Cayman GTS. This only needs 11 Skill Points to unlock a Super Wheelspin.
