Forza Horizon 5 Ladders are Smashable Objects required for the Snakes and Ladders Accolade found in the Discovery tab.
Like the Phone Boxes we already covered, the FH5 Ladders can’t be used in Community Challenges, meaning that you’ll have to find them while exploring Mexico.
For the Forza Horizon 5 Snakes and Ladders Discovery Accolade, you have to smash 10 Ladders in the 2000 Ford SVT Cobra R, which is tricky if you don’t know where to find them.
Therefore, throughout the guide below, I’ll tell you everything you need to know about the Forza 5 Ladders and their spawning locations in the video game developed by Playground Games.
Forza Horizon 5 Ladders – Where To Find
Your first goal is to get the required car to unlock this Forza 5 Accolade.
For this, head to the Auction House or the Autoshow, and if you don’t have the 2000 Ford SVT Cobra R buy it.
It costs 55.000 Credits if you opt to get it from the Car Collection list.
Now, get in the car and fast travel to Mulege.
Unlike the Phone Boxes, these objects don’t spawn that often, but there are two types you can smash.
As you can see on my map above, I have marked a specific location in Mulege.
Here you’ll find a small wooden ladder near the house in the following screenshot.
As you can see, this Forza Horizon 5 Ladder rests on the exterior wall of a house by the road.
However, you can also smash the larger metal ladders like the one in the following image.
This type of Ladder also counts for the Ladders and Snakes Accolade in Forza 5.
Now, since civilians use these Smashable Objects, and most of them are found near houses, you’ll want to check the towns on your map.
Mulege and Guanajuato should be the first ones you explore.
The idea here is simple. Drive the 2000 Ford SVT Cobra R on the streets of Mulege or Guanajuato, paying attention to the exterior walls of the houses.
Whenever you see a ladder smash into it. After you smash 10, the Accolade unlocks.
As you can guess, the Ladders and Snakes in Forza Horizon 5 is best approached while also working on other Accolades.
Two good examples here are the Silent Mode Accolade which requires you to smash 15 Phone Boxes, and the Ride and Seek Accolade, which unlocks when you discover all roads in Mexico.
Have Something To Add? Do It Here:
This accolade doesn’t seem to actually be tied to the SVT Cobra despite what the game indicates. I had 8 of the 10 ladders required before I drove the car for the first time.
No wonder. The game is still full of bugs.
It’s not a tuakly that hard to get all of the ladders. If you can’t find any more ladders, just go to your house and enter it. This resets everything and makes it so that it seems like the ladder was never broken. If you brake the ladder again it still counts towards the accolade.
