Forza Horizon 5’s The Eliminator is one of the more unique takes on the battle royale genre, asking you to challenge other players to races in an ever closing circle, while racing towards car drops and picking up better cars – including the fastest car in Forza Horizon 5.
But as you are hunting around for the best car in Forza Horizon 5 so you can come top in The Eliminator, you will also need to take out your opponents, slowly dropping them one by one. But, The Eliminator isn’t clearly explained to players initially, so like us you might be wondering how to get eliminations in The Eliminator within Forza Horizon 5.
With a fair bit of time spent racing around the open landscapes of Mexico we have pulled together all the ways to get eliminations in Forza Horizon 5’s The Eliminator mode. Read on for our top tips.
Forza Horizon 5 how to get eliminations
If you are looking to get eliminations in Forza Horizon 5 while playing The Eliminator, you will need to do the following things while playing:
- Trap opponents outside the circle
- Beat opponents in races
Trap opponents outside the circle
The easiest way to rack up eliminations in The Eliminator within Forza Horizon 5 is to try and get your enemies to drive outside of the ever-closing ring. Then try to get them stuck or lodged behind buildings, trapping them and getting them eliminated before they can make it back into the playable area.
Of course, in order to survive yourself, you will need to drive back into the playable area.
Beat opponents in races
Within a round of The Eliminator, you will be able to start races with other players by clicking the right stick. A random destination will then be displayed on the map. To win, beat your opponent to the location.
While eliminating opponents in this way, be sure to only challenge opponents who are in weaker cars than you. For example if you have a rank 5 car, you should only challenge opponents with a car that is rank 4 or lower. This allows you to outpace them and hopefully make it to the gate before they can.
Hopefully, this should answer your questions about how to get eliminations in Forza Horizon 5’s The Eliminator mode.
