One look at the expansive open world of Forza Horizon 5 is enough to hint that the devs must have packed it with all sorts of secret cars and exploration rewards. And sure enough, that is the case with the Barn Find locations scattered around Mexico in Forza Horizon 5.
This guide will take a detailed look at how Barn finds work, mention all the Barn find locations you can come across in Forza Horizon 5, and tell you what rewards each Barn holds.
How Does a Barn Find Work in FH5?
Right, so before we start scouring the streets of Mexico in search of barns, let us discuss what each Barn find spot does.
The gigantic map of FH5 has 14 spots where you can go and trigger a cutscene to find an old/classic car in shambles. This car has to be restored before it can be used again.
Once you go to the locations mentioned in the image above, you’ll find a white barn building with a yellow door. Most barns are at the end of an off-beat path and require some hounding skills to locate.
Some barns are also hidden behind Expedition or challenge progression. But don’t worry; we’ll mention which ones are and how to complete those prerequisites.
Approaching this Barn will trigger a cutscene where you and another NPC will open the door, and they will tell you about the significance of the car inside. Most of these cars are connected to Mexico in some way and hold cultural importance.
Once the cutscene ends, the car will be taken for restoration and will return to the same Barn you found it in after some time. Then you can fast travel back to the Barn to claim your reward.
