Base GameEdit

General AchievementsEdit

These are unlocked by performing a specific task in the game. They don't fit into any other categories.

Leader AchievementsEdit

These are earned by winning a normal game using a specific leader.

Difficulty AchievementsEdit

To earn these achievements, you have to win a normal single player game using the specified difficulty. Any victory condition (including a max turns time victory) will unlock these. These can be unlocked in scenarios as well.

Map AchievementsEdit

To earn these achievements, you must win a normal game on the specified map settings. You can earn a size and map type achievement simultaneously. Only the four basic map types are supported for these achievements.

Victory Condition AchievementsEdit

These are unlocked by earning a victory using each condition. Time victory is not included. These work on any difficulty/map setting.

Policy AchievementsEdit

These achievements are unlocked by completely adopting a policy tree. There is one for every policy. Unlocking all of these achievements also unlocks Enlightened Ruler.

Completion AchievementsEdit

There are several achievements that require you to completely utilize part of the game. These take several playthroughs to complete and needs you to deactivate certain DLCs (like Brave New World) in some playstroughs.
  • Enlightened Ruler - Unlock every social policy over the course of several games.
  • Model of a Modern Major-General - Train every unit in the base game (including unique units). Some people report this is broken, I have not verified this. You can track your progress on units using the debug file (instructions are further down). A complete listing of units required for this achievement can be found later in this document.
  • We Have the Technology - Research every technology, including Future Tech.
  • The Wonder Years - Build every wonder. You can do this over several games, you don't have to build every wonder in a single game.

City AchievementsEdit

These achievements are unlocked when a city produces more than 100 of gold, culture, or science in a single turn.

Counting AchievementsEdit

You can earn these over the course of several games. The achievement is unlocked once the count hits a certain number. The only exception is the standing army in Panzer "Shafernator" General. For that one, you have to have 100 military units in a single game.
  • The Appian Way - Build 1,000 roads.
  • The Explorer - Discover 100 natural wonders over any number of games.
  • Forty-Niner - Build 1,000 mines.

  • Here Ends the Noble Savage - Disperse 100 barbarian camps over any number of games.
  • Land Baron - Purchase 1,000 land tiles.
  • Marco Polo - Through exploration, discover 1,000 tiles. This is a particularly easy achievement.
  • Merchant King - Trade 100 resources over any number of games.
  • Panzer "Shafernator" General - Earn 100 Great Generals, have an army of over 100 units in a single game, and beat the game 100 times. This one will take a long time. Guided missiles and air units count toward the 100 units and completing scenarios counts toward victories.
  • Paul Bunyan - Cut down 1,000 forest tiles.

Civilization Specific AchievementsEdit

These can only be unlocked using a specific civilization. There is one for every civ except Siam. Some of these can be unlocked in scenarios as well. Achievements that require a unique unit can be unlocked by other civilizations with gifted units.
  • Arab Trader - Harun al-Rashid (Arabia) - Trade a luxury resource to another Civ that you earned through a city with a Bazaar. All you have to do is build a bazaar in a city with access to a luxury resource, then trade it to someone else.
  • All Roads Lead to Rome - Augustus Caesar (Rome) - Build a road with a legion.
  • Barbarian Warlord - Bismarck (Germany) - Convert 10 barbarian camps. Germany has a 50% chance of converting barbarians and having them join the German army.
  • Barbary Pirate - Suleiman (Ottomans) - Accumulate a navy with 10 Barbarian naval units. This works similarly to Barbarian Warlord, only with naval units. To convert barbarian naval units, move into the space next to them with one of your ships. A ship only has one chance to convert, if it does not, it never will. There is a section near the end of this guide devoted to this achievement.
  • Bollywood - Ghandi (India) - Win a cultural victory with only three cities. You can only have three cities for the entire game.

  • From Archaemennid to Safavid - Darius (Persia) - Trigger 5 golden ages in a single game. You cannot use great people, social policies, or wonders to trigger the golden ages, only happiness. Triggering a golden age using one of those methods does not disable this achievement, it just does not count.

  • Kamikaze Attack - Oda Nobunaga (Japan) - Kill an enemy unit using a a unit with only 1 HP.

These are achievements added with DLC that are unique. Most come from the Wonders of The Ancient World DLC. They can be unlocked in a scenario or a normal game. Some can only be unlocked by a certain civilization.

Scenario Achievements (DLC)Edit

These achievements can only be unlocked in a scenario. Many people report them as broken after trying to unlock them in a normal game, because they are not labeled properly. These all require specific DLC.

Scenario 01 - Rise of The MongolsEdit

These require Mongolia DLC

Scenario 02 - Conquest of The New WorldEdit

These require Spain and Inca DLC.

Scenario 03 - Paradise FoundEdit

These require Polynesia DLC.

Scenario 04 - 1066: Year of Viking DestinyEdit

These require the Gods and Kings expansion.

General AchievementsEdit

This includes Civilization-specific achievements.
  • Access Denied - Construct the Great Firewall Wonder.
  • Apocalypse Now - As the Maya, nuke a city in the year 2012. The Mayan Civ uses the Mayan long count calendar, so 2012 is 12.19.19.0.6 (January 2, 2012) in a standard paced game. This should be turn 432. (Thanks to Browd)
  • Capture of Brielle - Capture a Spanish Coastal City with a Dutch Sea Beggar.
  • Gimme Your Lunch Money! - Bully 3,000 gold from City-States across any number of playthroughs.
  • Greek Fire - As Byzantines, sink 10 Greek ships with a Dromon. This apparently must be done in a single game, since the debug file does not track this.
  • Hannibal’s Crossing - As Carthage, attack a Roman unit with an African Forest Elephant from a mountain tile.
  • The Last Crusade - Capture the city that built Petra using a landship.
  • Lion of the North - As Sweden, start a turn with your Great General stacked with a Hakkapelitta.
  • Longest. Name. Ever. - Have the city of Llanfairpwllgwyngyll in your empire. This is the 33rd city name for the Celts (noted by joncnunn, verified by me). You can earn this by having the Celts as an AI, and them building the city. You cannot earn this as The Huns.
  • RAM Usage - Research Satellites while playing as Attila on a huge map.
  • Rastafari Messiah - As Ethiopia, earn 5 great prophets. These can be earned in any way (through wonders, faith, etc).
  • Yoink! - As Austria, acquire a City-State with 15 or more units through Diplomatic Marriage. (Prior to November 1, 2012, this was "As Austria, replace another civ as allies with a City-State and acquire the City-State through diplomatic marriage in the same turn.") The easiest way to do this is to ally with a city state, save up enough gold to have a diplomatic marriage, then fill all of their tiles with your combat units. The total of your units and theirs should be 15 or more. Gift all the units at once (using the unit's gift command, not the "gift a unit" option from the City State pop-up). If you do not complete the diplomatic marriage in the same turn, some of the units will be disbanded.

Leader AchievementsEdit

These are earned by winning a normal game using a specific leader. These require Gods and Kings.

  • Nobody expects... - As Spain, use an inquisitor to remove another religion.

  • We are Family - Become the dominant religion in every Capital city on a standard-size or larger map. This achievement may not unlock. It is possible you must win the game to earn this. A bug in this achievement which counted the capitals of eliminated civs to be counted was fixed in the latest patch.
