Influence – Detailed Earning Guide

Our Forza Horizon 4 Influence Guide details some easy tips and methods on how you can earn influence in Forza Horizon 4.

Collect Cars

One of the best things to do in Forza Horizon 4 is to collect cars and make your car collection bigger and bigger. The game is very generous in rewarding you with cars as well so it won’t be long before you are the proud owner of many cool and amazing machines. These cars in your garage will build up your Car Collection level which every time, you level up will grant you with bonus influence.

There are different ways to acquire cars in the game. You can find Barn Finds, win cars from Super Wheelpins or regular Wheelspins or simply purchase them from the Autoshow. The games features a big list of more than 450 cars so you have a long list to go if you want to complete your car collection. DLC cars also give you bonus influence so they are also a good way of earning some influence.

Keep collecting cars and you will keep getting influence. This is a very easy source of building up your collecting as well as earning influence to unlock new things in the game.

Purchase Car Skills

Every car in Forza Horizon 4 has a unique skill set which can be called a car loyalty mechanic. You can purchase specific skills from this menu, which will grant you bonus influence when you complete certain activities or tasks in the game. For example, purchasing such skills will increase influence gained every time you win a race or defeat a rival.

If you love purchasing new cars, then you must know that each car will come with its own unique skill set and you must purchase these skills again for every new car that you drive. It might sound very hectic but it is actually very easy. You get skill points very easily in the game if you put off some crazy skill chains.

Complete Activities

Each activity in the game is defined as a separate entity and they have their own separate levels such as Street Scene, Road Racing Series, Painter, Collector, Speed Trap, The Drift Run and so on. Every activity you perform in the game will increase the level of these activities, which you can track in My Horizon Life tab.

Every time you level up in any of these activities, you will be rewarded with bonus influence as well as something cool. Hence, it is vital that you complete as many of these activities to earn influence. These activities are not something that require you to do something extra. Just keep playing the game and you will keep levelling up in most of these activities.

Explore All Roads

Just like previous Forza Horizon 4 games, exploring each road will unlock a bonus achievement for you and will unlock the ability to fast travel there. As you explore more and more roads, you will earn influence just for driving on a road for the first time. Along with the roads, you will also unlock many scenic places and unique areas which when visited, will give you bonus influence as well.

The map of Forza Horizon 4 is littered with Speed Traps, Drift Zones, Danger Signs and Speed Zones as well as Bonus Boards. You can unlock them gradually as you explore the map of Forza Horizon 4 so put your driving gloves on, explore the gorgeous roads and earn influence on the go.

Watch Mixer Streams

Microsoft’s Mixer, the streaming app, is fully integrated in Forza Horizon 4. It plays a vital role in the game because if you watch streams or stream your own game, you will earn influence. This is a very easy method to earn influence as you can just start a stream and do some things around in the house and then come back later to have free influence added to your account.
