Outward Achievements Guide

The classic multiplayer roguelike, Risk of Rain, returns with an extra dimension and more challenging action. Play solo, or team up with up to three friends to fight your way through hordes of monsters, unlock new loot, and find a way to escape the planet.

Outward Achievements

Outward Achievements Guide

The developers implemented 44 achievements and you have to complete the game at least thrice to unlock all of them. Although only one achievement requires co-op, it’s highly recommended to play and complete the game with a friend. It will make your life significantly easier.

Achievements – Information

The game has a really transparent save system which allows you to easily make backups for gaining advantage in picking loot, crafting resources and unlocking achievements. You can find the files here:

  • …\Steam\steamapps\common\Outward\SaveGames

This is especially useful for the “They’ll Tell Stories About This” achievement since you don’t have to start all over again if you die. So don’t forget to backup your saves before fighting sttrong enemies or entering dungeons.

Simple Tasks, Crafting, Kills and Skills Achievements
You can obtain these achievements at any time, no matter which of the three joinable fractions you choose. However, you could block some of them for you or your friend while playing co-op. So make sure to fairly split up actions before progressing too far, e.g. “Home Sweet Home” for buying a house.

Quest Achievements
There are three different quest lines in the game. Your path depends on the fraction you join – the Blue Chamber, the Heroic Kingdom or the Holy Mission. Once you made your desicion there is no turning back and you won’t be able to join the other fractions with your character.

Although you’ll have to make a lot of decisions on your journey, you can’t reach a dead end in the quest line. You may lose cities, allies or important fights – but you won’t lose the possibility to complete the four main quests of a fraction. However, you can lose the parallel quest and hence an achievement. So try to focus on the parallel quest as soon as it appears in your journal.

Unfortunately, only the host of a co-op match can unlock quest-related achievements.
