Forza Horizon 5 Snowmen are Seasonable Smashable Objects you must find during Series 2 if you want to unlock the Mazda Of All Trades Accolade.
FH5 Snowmen are, unfortunately, a bit tricky because they are pretty rare, and they are also bugged, meaning that the counter is not working as it should.
Nevertheless, the Forza Horizon 5 Mazda Of All Trades Accolade is obtainable, and below, I’ll tell you how to smash 25 Snowmen in FH5 and obviously where to find them.
Before we move to the actual locations, it’s worth knowing that the Snowmen below will also unlock the Snowman Outfit since they are the Forza Horizon 5 Frosty Friends Collectibles you have to find during the Autumn Season of Series 2.
For the said outfit, you have to smash 15 Frosty Friends.
So just follow the guide below, and you’ll complete both the Mazda of All Trades Accolade and the FH5 Frosty Friends Challenge.
Forza Horizon 5 Snowmen – Where To Find
As said, the Snowmen in Forza Horizon 5 are pretty rare, and before we go over the Mazda Of All Trades Accolade, let’s see where you can find them.
Although they may also spawn in other regions, the best location to find the Snowmen in FH5 is the top of La Gran Caldera mountain.
On the map above, you can notice that there are 5 Snowmen you can find and smash at this location.
I have marked all of them, and the table below offers additional information on where to look for them.
|1.||The FH5 Snowman is found by the entrance to the meteorological station.|
|2.||On the right side of a house in the same station.|
|3.||This Forza Horizon 5 Snowman is sitting near the wooden cabin by the lake.|
|4.||On the lake’s southern shore.|
|5.||Up on a hill near a rather large rock, on the left side of the road around the lake.|
Great, so now that you know where 5 Snowmen spawn in Forza Horizon 5, let’s see how you can farm them.
In my screenshot below, you can see how a Snowman looks in the video game developed by Playground Games.
Mazda Of All Trades – How To Smash 25 Snowmen
Forza Horizon 5 Mazda Of All Trades Accolade requires you to get a Mazda and then smash the following:
- 25 Snowmen
- 25 Christmas Trees
- 25 Candy Canes
Remember that these Smashable Objects are available only during the Holiday Season (Series 2).
So, for this Accolade, first, get a Mazda. Any model you want.
Now, you’ll want to focus on the 25 Snowmen, and as you can see on my map, there are only 5 in that area, which means that you’ll want to smash them five times.
The problem is that the counter doesn’t work, so make sure you pin the Accolade to see the counter in the corner of the screen.
After you do this, head to La Gran Caldera and use my map and the table to track the 5 Snowmen. After you smash all of them, you’ll have to force them to respawn.
The best option here is to start The Titan Event.
Basically, you’ll want to enter the race and keep your current car.
After the actual race starts, quit the event, and you’ll be able to see that the Snowmen (all three pictured below) respawned.
As you can imagine, along with the 3 FH5 Snowmen in my image above, you’ll also want to smash the other two on my map.
Once you are done, restart The Titan Event and repeat.
Now, regarding the Candy Canes and the Christmas Trees, these are relatively easy to find.
If you need help with them, fast travel to Mulege and Guanajuato because they are placed on the streets.
Assuming you already smashed those before the 25 FH5 Snowmen, when you quit The Titan, you’ll see that the counter shows 0 Christmas Trees and 0 Candy Canes, even though you smashed all of them.
Just as you can see in my image below.
It is a common error or a Forza Horizon 5 bug, which occurs because of the same counter.
If you pay close attention to the screenshot, you can notice that the Mazda Of All Trades Accolade unlocks even though the counter shows that I only smashed the 25 FH5 Snowmen.
