Forza Horizon 5 Solar Panels are required to unlock the Total Eclipse Discovery Accolade, and they are Smashable Objects similar to the Piñatas and Traffic Cones we already covered. The FH5 Solar Panels are harder to find even though they are close to each other.
The problem is that for the Forza Horizon 5 Total Eclipse Accolade, you need to smash 100 Solar Panels, which is not a small number. Luckily, there is a fast method to unlock the FH5 Total Eclipse Accolade, and below, I’ll tell you how to use it.
Where To Find the FH5 Solar Panels
The best location to find Solar Panels in Forza Horizon 5 is close to the highway, as you can see on my map above. This spot is northeast of Mulege, and it is in the middle of a field.
If you drive to the location marked above, you’ll find a lot of Solar Panels waiting to be smashed. However, you have to consider that the Forza 5 Total Eclipse Accolade also requires you to smash the Solar Panels in the 1995 Mitsubishi Eclipse GSX. You can see the car below.
If you wonder how to get the 1995 Mitsubishi Eclipse GSX in the latest video game developed by Playground Games, then you should know that you can win it at Wheelspins, buy it from the Auction House or the Autoshow via your Car Collection screen.
Once you get the car, head to the location on my map and smash all Solar Panels. If you smash all of them and the Accolade doesn’t unlock, you should revisit this location later. Or, you can use the method below, which is faster. Specifically, you’ll unlock the FH5 Total Eclipse Accolade in 2 minutes.
How To Smash 100 Solar Panels in the 1995 Mitsubishi Eclipse Gsx
To get this Accolade even faster, you can use one of the Community Challenges created by user Munz2. Obviously, you still need to get the Mitsubishi Eclipse; otherwise, you can’t unlock the Accolade. After you get the car, follow these steps to access the Challenge:
- In the game’s menu, press RB and go to Creative Hub
- Choose the Event Lab in the next window
- Now, select Event Blueprints
- Use the Search option at the bottom of the screen
- In the Search window, leave all fields as they are and edit the Share Code field only
- In the Share Code field, add the following code: 124457680
Once you start the Challenge, you’ll see a lot of Solar Panels lined along the highway. Just stick to the left side of the road and smash all of them, then cross the finish line. Assuming you need more Solar Panels, just replay the same Challenge, and as you can see below, the Forza Horizon 5 Total Eclipse Accolade unlocks.
Finally, if by any chance the Challenge is removed by its creator, you can look for similar ones simply by tying Solar Panels in the Title field while searching for Blueprint events.
