The credits, prize crate, and VIP systems added into Forza Motorsport 7 are probably the new elements that fans are liking the least, but there’s good news for those who hate these systems and are willing to cheat a bit.
If you’ve been having trouble getting what you want from the Rewards screen or the randomized price crates, there are two very simple methods for earning endless amounts of credits and other bonuses.
Below we cover both a non-glitch method that takes advantage of an easy workaround, and a full-on glitch method that uses a Forza 7 money bug.
Several of the Forza edition cars give extra credits on a win at certain circuits, such as the Nissan GT-R Forza Edition at Suzuka circuit, or the Acura NSX Forza Edition. Be sure to also equip any of your Mods that give bonus credits on the vehicle as well for maximum earnings.
Set the race time to 30 seconds, then set the Drivatars to 0. It will just be you on the race, it only takes 30 seconds, and you basically get a free 10,000 credit bump to your account. Now do it again. And again. And again. Just keep hitting Restart (that way you don’t have to re-select the map and settings) and say hello to those prize crates!
What’s great about this option is that it isn’t a glitch or cheat – it’s just a feature that can be taken advantage of – so you won’t get your account banned and it probably won’t be patched out anytime soon.
Forza 7 Free Money Glitch Method
This one is in fact a glitch and is very likely going to get patched out quickly, so jump on it as fast as you can!
Pick your fastest available vehicle and then head to Free Play and go to Homestead Miami Speedway circuit. Open up the Race Setup screen and set the game type to Circuit Race, then drop the Drivatars to 0 and set the laps to 3.
With those settings changed, tap over to Setup and access the Assists screen, then set the Global Assists to Super Easy to change everything to the easiest difficulty. On this setting, the car steers and brakes for you, so you only have to press the gas to reach the finish line.
After you finish the three laps, choose the Restart option on the race win screen. Hit Continue, and you will know the glitch is working for you if you don’t get any rewards for winning the race – you just get a black screen and then it goes back to the Free Play race settings.
Instead of choosing Start Race to restart, at this point you need to completely shut down and restart Forza Motorsports 7. On the Xbox, you have to highlight the game’s entry on the menu screen, hit Start, and choose Quit. If you just shut off your console it won’t actually restart the program, since the Xbox runs on low power mode by default.
When the game restarts, go back to Free Play and you should already be back at the same Homestead Miami track with the same settings. Go into Race Setup again and change it from Circuit Race to Timed Race, then again select 30 seconds and 0 Drivatars.
Start the race and just drive for 30 seconds until it ends. This time, choose Quit instead of Restart and then choose Continue. This time the rewards screen should appear. Stay on this screen for about 30 seconds without pressing anything, then again shut down and restart Forza 7 entirely.
When the game restarts, tab over to Progress and you should notice there are Rewards waiting for you! Just keep collecting the bonus credits or free cars for each Reward, and you should pretty quickly have a big stockpile.
Here’s the best part… you can do this all again. Start again with the Homestead Miami Speedway race and repeat the process for an endless stream of free Forza 7 credits and cars.
