Forza Motorsport 4 Walkthrough and Guide

by CMBF  

Print page (no screenshots)   |   Print page


Forza Motorsport 4 is an Xbox 360 Exclusive title that was developed by Turn 10 Studios and published by Microsoft Game Studios for the Xbox 360. It includes 58 Achievements that are worth a total of 1,250GP in Gamer Score (the base game contains 48 Achievements with an additional 10 that are added by the Porsche Expansion Pack for a total of 58).

Where it is appropriate hints and tips are added to each of the Achievements listed below if the addition of that information is thought to be particularly useful or helpful to the player. There are no known bugs effecting any of the Achievements in the game, and all of them can be successfully unlocked.

While there are "legitimate" cheats in the game, gamers should be aware that due to several bugs in the game it is possible to obtain large amounts of in-game money in a manner inconsistent with the intended normal game play actions. Cases have been reported of gamers taking advantage of those bugs in order to obtain the large sums of in-game money/credits that are required to purchase key cars that are part of specific Achievements listed below, only to be permanently banned from Xbox LIVE as well as the Forza Servers operated by Turn 10.

It appears to be the case that Microsoft's PET unit spot-checks the accounts of gamers who unlock certain Achievements -- specifically the Exclusive Taste, Ferrari Collector, and Unicorn Hunter -- and if they determine that the player could not have obtained the in-game funds that were used legitimately they then ban the account. There have been reports of gamers receiving full life console bans for making use of the money/credit bug in the game when they have previous infractions on their record. As is always the case, making use of bugs -- or cheating -- is really never a good idea, and we caution you to avoid even the appearance of cheating in the game, because Microsoft's PET is notorious for sticking by their decision to ban once they have lowered the ban-hammer on a gamer!

The following 48-Achievements are present in the base game:

(01) Welcome to Forza Motorsport (15 GP) Complete the very first race in the game.

(02) Driver Level 1 (20 GP) Reach Driver Level 1 in Career mode.
(03) Driver Level 10 (20 GP) Reach Driver Level 10 in Career mode.
(04) Driver Level 20 (20 GP) Reach Driver Level 20 in Career mode.

(06) Driver Level 40 (20 GP) Reach Driver Level 40 in Career mode.
(07) Driver Level 50 (20 GP) Reach Driver Level 50 in Career mode.

(11) Semi-Pro (25 GP) Complete the fourth year of Season Play.
(12) Expert (25 GP) Complete the fifth year of Season Play.
(13) Professional (25 GP) Complete the sixth year of Season Play.

(14) Masters (25 GP) Complete the seventh year of Season Play.

(21) Bucket List (80 GP) Finish 1st in every single race in the Event List in Career play mode.

(22) Car Explorer (10 GP) Fully explore any car in Autovista.
This Achievement has been reported to be bugged, but it is not. Most of the time when a gamer feels like they did not get the Achievement when they should have the issue is their failing to examine one of the outside elements of the car. Simply go along the outside of the car and expand each view option after doing the same inside, and it will unlock.

(23) Clubbed Up (15 GP) Create or join a Car Club.

(24) Daily Rewards (5 GP) Visit the Message Center on at least five unique days.

(25) Entrepreneur (10 GP) Sell a car tuning, paint job, or vinyl group from your storefront.

(26) Exclusive Taste (50 GP) Own the five most expensive cars in the game (not including DLC).
Note that while you can use the Car Tokens to purchase these, be aware that the cars purchased with the tokens cannot be sold on the Auction House and in most cases cannot be gifted. While you can sell them to the game, you do not get anywhere near their list value, but just a token payment of 100 credits.

(27) Factory Driver (60 GP) Get any Car Manufacturer to Affinity level 50.

(28) Ferrari Collector (40 GP) Own every Ferrari included on Disc 1.
Be aware that some of these can be obtained as the bonus reward car for leveling your driver. Be sure to consult the special section on this Achievement in the guide, and the Level Rewards Car Chart elsewhere in the guide for additional information and to help in planning out your strategy.

(29) Flat Out (5 GP) Earn a perfect Speed score.

(30) Forza Faithful (15 GP) Import a file from Forza Motorsport 3.
(31) Forza World Tourer (60 GP) Finish a race on every race track in Forza Motorsport 4.
Unless you change up the car you are driving you will not even come close to unlocking this through regular play. If you choose to use a specific manufacturer in order to work towards the Affinity Achievement (there will be some races where you are forced to use a specific maker) you will need to utilize the events menu to check which venues you have yet to race on and then select them in order to unlock this.  A complete ticklist of the tracks that are required is included in the special section for this Achievement in the guide.

(32) Grease Monkey (10 GP) Create a car tuning file for your car.
All that you need to do is change one item on the tuning profile and then save the profile to unlock this Achievement.

(33) Here's My Card (10 GP) Create a custom Player Card with a badge and title.

(34) Kingpin (5 GP) Knock down a gold bowling pin in Car Bowling.

(35) Legendary Battle (15 GP) Beat a Ferrari 330 P4 in any race while driving a Ford GT40 Mark II.
You do NOT need to own these cars in order to unlock this Achievement. You can simply set up an instant race and then select the Ford GT40 as your car, and the Ferrari 330 as your opponents.

(36) Look Ma, No Controller! (5 GP) Use Kinect to drive any car in Free Play.
This is the only Kinect-based Achievement in the game and you are only required to briefly drive a car using Kinect; you do not have to complete the entire race to unlock this.

(37) My Car is Your Car (10 GP) Share a car in your garage with your Car Club.

(38) Nice Pass (15 GP) Earn a perfect Pass score.

(39) On Location (20 GP) Take a photo of any car in every Home Space.

(40) Outta Time (10 GP) Reach 88 mph in a DeLorean.
The easiest way to unlock this is to do an instant race on an oval track.
(41) Painter (10 GP) Create a paint job or vinyl group for your car.

(42) Perfect Turn (15 GP) Earn a perfect Turn score.

(43) Rivals Shootout (10 GP) Race and defeat an opponent in Rivals mode.
(44) Show Off (10 GP) Upload a movie to

(45) Slipstreamin' (5 GP) Earn a perfect Draft score.

(46) Speed Demon (10 GP) Reach 240 mph in any car.
The easiest way to do this is to select the Veyron Super Sport or the SSC Ultimate Aero and then select a venue that is either oval or has long straight sections.

(47) Star in a Reasonably Priced Car (10 GP) Complete a lap around the TopGear Test Track while driving a KIA Cee'd.
(48) Unicorn Hunter (10 GP) Be the winning bidder on any "Unicorn" car in the Auction House.
This Achievement's description is a bit misleading -- you are not actually required to win an auction for a car that is designated as a Unicorn (Rare/Special Car), rather you just need to OWN one. There are a number of ways that you can unlock this -- the hardest being to try to win a Unicorn Auction, which will easily cost in the high hundreds-of-millions-of-credits, so that is not an option for most gamers. The easiest way is have one of the rare cars from Forza 3 transfer to the game when you start your new play in Forza 4.

The following cars are designated as Unicorns (and if you have them in Forza 3 they will transfer):

-- 1969 Chevrolet Camaro SS Coupe
-- 1993 MINE'S R32 Skyline GT-R
-- 2002 BMW M3-GTR
-- 2002 Mazda RX-7 Spirit R Type-A
-- 2002 MINE'S R34 Skyline GT-R
-- 2002 Mugen Integra Type-R
-- 2002 Top Secret 0-300 Supra
-- 2003 Ferrari Challenge Stradale
-- 2004 Mugen Civic Type-R
-- 2004 Top Secret Silvia D1-Spec S15
-- 2005 Honda NSX-R GT
-- 2006 HKS Time Attack Evolution CT230R
-- 2006 Subaru Impreza S204
-- 2007 Ferrari F430 Scuderia
-- 2007 Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera
-- 2007 Lamborghini Murciélago LP640
-- 2007 Shelby GT500

Some of the cars from the Forza 3 VIP Car Pack will unlock this when they are transferred into Forza 4 at the start of the game, particularly the 2007 Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera and the 2007 Ferrari F430 Scuderia, which are both verified to work. Please be aware that if you have decided to puchase the Forza 3 VIP Pack as your strategy for unlocking this at the start of your new Forza 4 game you will need to actually play Forza 3 and purchase one or more of the cars you want to have transferred to Forza 4, as it only applies to cars that are actually in your player's garage at the time of the transfer request. The prompt to import your Forza 3 cars takes place immediately following the introductory race and before you actually begin your Forza 4 career.

New DLC: The Porsche Expansion Pack

When Forza 4 was first released it contained no cars from car manufacturer Porsche. The reason for that was that Electronic Arts own the license for the use of Porsche in video games and, for whatever reason, decided not to allow Turn 10 to use the licensed cars even though Turn 10 owns the video game license for other makers and has allowed EA to use them in their Need for Speed series. In 2012 EA reversed its decision, and sub-licensed the brand for use in Forza 4, but at a significant premium, which required Turn 10 to include them as paid DLC rather than free content, which might otherwise have been the case.

The Porche Expansion Pack adds a total of 30 new cars to the game, all of which are different models of Porsche, and in addition to adding these new cars it also fills in the 20 missing events on the events list, and adds the following ten new Achievements to the game, worth an additional 250GP, bringing the total GP in the game to 1,250GP.

The cost of the Porsche Expansion Pack when it is purchased via the Xbox LIVE Marketplace is 1600 Microsoft Points, however IF you are a VIP Member (meaning that you either orginally purchased the Limited Collector Edition of the game or you purchased the VIP Pack via the Xbox LIVE Marketplace) you should be aware that you will receive a discount on the Porsche Expansion Pack and other car packs, but ONLY if you make the purchases through the Marketplace inside the game.

To purchase the discounted version of the expansion pack, from the Main Menu of the game select Marketplace > Car Packs > Porsche Expansion Pack and then select any of the cars that are presented in the catalog at the bottom of the screen to initiate the Marketplace Purchase option, at which point you will be prompted to verify that you do in fact wish to purchase the expansion pack, which when it is selected from the Marketplace inside the game is priced at 1,200 Microsoft Points (a savings of 400 Microsoft Points over its price on the Xbox LIVE Marketplace, which is 1,600 Microsoft Points).

Once you confirm the order, the game will then download the DLC and automatically add it to the menus. Please be aware that purchasing this expansion pack or ANY of the car packs does NOT add the cars contained in them to your Garage -- it adds them to the catalog of cars that can be purchased in game. To obtain the car or cars you want, you will need to then purchase them, either with in-game money or using Car Tokens that you have bought from the Marketplace.

The following Ten Achievements were added by the Porsche Expansion Pack:

(49) All Spooled Up (25 points) Earn 30,000CR in the 2007 Porsche 911 Turbo (997).

(50) ALMS Dominator (25 GP) Win online in the 2011 Porsche #45 Flying Lizard 911 GT3-RSR (997).

(55) Special Delivery (25 GP) Earn 30,000CR in the 2008 Porsche #7 Penske Racing RS Spyder Evo.
(56) Throwback (25 GP) Complete 5 online circuit races in the 2010 Porsche 911 Sport Classic.
(57) Track Day Play Toy (20 GP) Complete 3 online circuit races in the 2007 Porsche 911 GT3 RS (997).

Note: ALL of these can be unlocked in private online races using AI opponents. Simply use the specified car and complete the specified actions.
