The name Lucky Escape gives away part of the skill, but not the whole picture. To put it bluntly, a Lucky Escape Skill is awarded when one achieves a Near Miss or Great Near Miss while performing a drift or e-drift.

This means that when one sees an oncoming vehicle on the road, the car must perform a drift or e-drift in order to miss colliding with a vehicle. It seems simple enough, but it can be tough. This will ultimately depend on a number of factors, including the vehicle’s setup, the size of the road, and the user’s skill in Forza Horizon 5.

While it may be tricky at first, you can get it down with a bit of practice. We have a couple of tips for performing this skill. You’ll first want to make sure to drive close to oncoming vehicles. Then, use a vehicle with good drift and RWD.

Finally, it helps to turn on Horizon Solo. This is because, in Solo (offline) mode, more AI cars will spawn so that you don’t have to wait for human drivers to come along the road. Go to the home screen, and then the Online section. Then, find ‘Horizon Solo’ to turn on this mode.
