Another Top 10 Hardest Video Game Achievements

These have been the cause of many a rage quit. Welcome to and today we are counting down our picks for another top ten hardest video game achievements

For this list, we’ll be counting down video game achievements that are more than a little difficult to obtain. If you don’t see an entry that you think should have made the cut, be sure to check out our original top ten.

#10: Mile High Club
“Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare” (2007)

We hope you are quick on the draw, because this one is still considered by many the hardest achievement to obtain in any Call of Duty game. On paper it might sound simple enough; complete the Mile High Club mission on Veteran difficulty setting. However, this becomes a far more complex matter when you realize that it involves taking out waves of enemies, dealing with a hostage situation and then escaping a double decker aircraft carrier all within a single minute. Best hop to it.

#9: This is Total War
“Rome II: Total War” (2013)

Have a knack for diplomacy and crafting out peace treaties? Well forget all that because to get this achievement you have to go full-on tyrannical. Given how it’s all too easy to automatically slip into negotiations, players will have to be extra cautious and launch an attack the moment they discover a new group. There’s also the annoying little feature of there being so many factions for you to fight against that taking them all on doesn’t only require a whole lot of bloodlust but high-tier strategy to ensure you survive long enough to declare war on the next civilisation you encounter. Man, conflict is exhausting.

#8: Unachievable
“The Stanley Parable” (2013)

Much like the Narrator himself, many of the achievements in this game don’t just break the fourth wall, they smash it. While not exactly living up to its namesake, many players were utterly confused how to unlock this achievement given that some were randomly given it for seemingly doing nothing. In a bid to decode it, many tried reverse engineering the game, though the developer caught onto this and constantly changed the requirements to unlock it via patches. After a lot of back and forth, it’s been established now that your only hope to get it is sheer luck, or get ready to edit a lot of files.

#7: Reign of Terror
“Diablo 3” (2012)

Abandon all hope ye who enter, because if you want to prove yourself as a master of this dark fantasy RPG, you have to slay Diablo in Hardcore Mode. A mode that gives your character one life and one life only, and should you fall in combat said character is gone forever. Given the amount of enemies and bosses let alone the strength of Diablo himself, in order to unlock this achievement players will have to navigate a literal gauntlet of death in order to slay the devil as nothing more than a true mortal. Talk about the highway to hell.

#6: The Real Deal
“Left 4 Dead 2” (2009)

Think you can shoot your way out of a zombie apocalypse? Well, only the best of the best will be able to survive and make their way to this achievement. Not only do you have to complete a campaign in Expert mode, which essentially increases enemy intellect and strength to absurd degrees as well as the frequency and size of the horde, but you also have to play it with Realism mode enabled. For those that aren’t in the know, this basically turns the Witch into a living insta-kill, further increasing durability of all other zombies, and generally tests you and your friends to their very limits. Good luck.

#5: World’s Finest
“Injustice: Gods Among Us” (2013)

You may well indeed dominate in online matches as your favourite DC superhero or villain, but in order to prove yourself as the greatest of them all then you will have to complete not one, not ten, not a hundred, by all two hundred and forty STAR Labs Missions. Not only do each of these missions put various constraints on the player as well as force them to play as a particular character, but each mission has three specific requirements that need to be completed. Add that all together and you essentially have seven hundred and twenty tasks to complete. Yep, this sounds like a job for Superman alright.

#4: Hard to the Core
“Dead Space 2” (2011)

Isaac Clarke does not have it easy, what with being haunted by a murderous entity posing as his dead girlfriend all the while surrounded with bloodthirsty Necromorphs. If you’re a glutton for punishment and think you can handle anything the Marker can throw at you, then by all means give Hard Core mode a shot, we guarantee you’ll regret it. Not only are enemies extraordinarily tough, but you only get three chances to save throughout the entire game. One thing is for sure, Isaac is not going to have a good time.

#3: Ultimate Battler
“Star Ocean: The Last Hope” (2009)

Want to prove your mettle? All this game asks is that you unlock all of the Battle Trophies. All nine hundred of them. That’s a hundred for each of the nine playable characters in the game. To unlock just one Battle Trophy players are required to execute a very specific action, which can range from dealing a very specific amount of damage, attacking first several hundred times, gaining certain items, interacting with specific characters, the list goes on and on. And again, that’s just for one character. Truly your last hope for this achievement is to wade your way through an ocean of monotony…

#2: Master of the Universe
“VVVVVV” (2010)

As Captain Viridian, it’s your mission to save your scattered crew and escape the titular dangerous dimension, with the only obstacle standing in your way is those accursed spikes often found on most indie platformers. However, there’s a catch. You can’t jump, all you can do is reverse gravity and direct yourself to avoid being impaled. What could be the most difficult achievement in a game where you’re constantly facing death? Complete the whole thing without dying of course! Want to be the Master of the Universe? You’re only hope is surviving No Death Mode by the skin of your teeth.

#1: World Champion
“Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter” (2006)

There can only be one. If you reckon that your skill is sharp enough and your trigger finger is on point then you might as well try your luck at the universal leaderboard, where your prize for becoming The number one player IN THE WORLD earns you this devastatingly difficult achievement. The only way you’ll ever hope to see it is to constantly win matches against stronger opponents to increase your rank, and given how many players stand in-between you and the most coveted rank one, it’s the literal definition of fighting an uphill battle.
