List of achievements
|God of Blood
|Earn all other Trophies
|Self-explanatory. Playstation exclusive.
|Champion of Elysium
|Clear Elysium with the ‘Extreme Measures’ Condition
|Once the Pact of Punishment is unlocked, put 3 levels into Extreme Measures and clear Elysium. Be warned – Theseus and Asterius at this level is no slouch.
|Hold the Onions
|Clear an Infernal Gate without taking damage
|Once the Pact of Punishment is unlocked and Alternate Exits is unlocked from the House Contractor, set the Heat level to 5 at minimum to gain access to the Infernal Gate in Tartarus, then clear it without getting hit.
|Is There No Escape?
|Clear an escape attempt
|Self-explanatory – beat the Final Boss.
|Weapon of Fate
|Clear an escape attempt with a hidden Weapon Aspect
|Unlike the Fated List, you have to clear a run as opposed to just bringing them to the surface. See the individual weapon pages for information on how to unlock hidden Weapon Aspects.
|To Charon’s Credit
|Earn a Loyalty Card
|Encounter Charon’s shop mid-way through a biome (the shop before the boss will not work). Occasionally, there will be a sack of Obol behind him – interact with it to ‘borrow’ it and engage Charon in combat. Defeating him will earn you the Loyalty Card.
|The Useless Trinket
|Earn the first of Skelly’s prizes
|Once the Pact of Punishment is unlocked, set the Heat level to 8 minimum and complete a run.
|Skelly’s Last Lamentations
|Earn the second of Skelly’s prizes
|Once the Pact of Punishment is unlocked, set the Heat level to 16 minimum and complete a run.
|Something From Everyone
|Unlock each standard Keepsake
|Self-explanatory. This cannot be unlocked until a while after the main quest is complete, as it will take a few runs before you can get Hades’ keepsake.
|Max-rank each standard Keepsake
|Self-explanatory. Keep switching between Keepsakes to level them up instead of sticking to using max-rank keepsakes to get this faster. Like Something From Everyone, this cannot be unlocked until a while after the main quest is complete.
|Equip a Chthonic Companion
|Megaera, Thanatos, Skelly, Sisyphus, Dusa, and Achilles will each give you a companion if the affinity gauge is high enough; refer to the linked page for a list. Max out their affinity gauge with Nectar then complete their Favor for them, upon which you can gift them Ambrosia to get a companion, which you can then equip.
|Earn all Chthonic Companions
|Repeat the process outlined in Rare Collectible for all six characters.
|Max any Weapon Aspect
|It’s cheapest to max out the Zagreus aspect of any weapon as it will only cost 5 Titan Blood. Max out the Zagreus aspect of the Stygian Blade to simultaneously help with Rare Collectible, or save enough Titan Blood to max out your favorite aspect of another weapon.
|Unlock all weapon aspects
|Self-explanatory. Requires the player to find the 6 hidden aspects, one for each weapon.
|Blessed by the Gods
|Choose 100 different Olympian Boon effects
|As the boons of each of the Olympian gods are all tied to their own prophecy in the Fated List of Minor Prophecies, working towards completing these prophecies by picking boons you are missing should net you this eventually.
|Thanks, But No Thanks
|Purge a Legendary Boon
|Get a Legendary Boon and sell it at the Pool of Purging. God’s Legacy in the Mirror of Night can aid with getting Legendary Boons easier; do be mindful of the boon prerequisites.
|Tools of the Architect
|Choose 50 different Daedalus Hammer enchantments
|As the upgrades of each weapon are all tied to their own prophecy in the Fated List of Minor Prophecies, working towards completing these prophecies by picking upgrades you are missing should net you this eventually.
|Unlock each of the Infernal Arms
|This will require a total of 24 Chthonic Keys.
|Forge a bond with any character
|Continue gifting Nectar, completing the Favor, and gifting Ambrosia to a character, until the affinity gauge maxes out.
|Fully Unlock the Olympians’ Codex entries
|You can check the progress of this, for any God, at any time, in the Codex, so you know what is required to continue learning more (whether it be by accepting more Boons from them, or by deepening your relationship).
|Trade 20 times with the Wretched Broker
|Self-explanatory. While you should get this eventually if you continually trade with the Wretched Broker, this can also be easily ‘cheesed’ by trading 200 Gemstones for 20 Chthonic Keys and then traveling to a different room in the House of Hades to save the game.
|Pay for 50 jobs from the House Contractor
|Self-explanatory. You should get this eventually if you continually order jobs.
|Had to Happen
|Fulfill any 15 Prophecies
|Self-explanatory. You’ll unlock more prophecies the more you play; keep track of the Fated List of Minor Prophecies to see what you still need to complete any lingering prophecies.
|Catch a fish from each region
|Purchase the Fishing Rod from the House Contractor, then fish whenever you can. A slight ‘ding’ is heard whenever there’s a fishing point after clearing a chamber. It is required to catch a fish in Tartarus, Asphodel, Elysium, and Greece for this achievement.
|Urge to Sing
|Compel Orpheus to sing again
|Gift Orpheus at least 1 Nectar and then continue playing runs until he starts singing again.
|Have at least one rank in each Mirror of Night Talent
|Self-explanatory. This will require a lot of Darkness and Chthonic Keys.
|Night and Darkness
|Fulfill the ‘Night and Darkness’ Prophecy
|This is the prophecy to reunite Nyx and Chaos; get their affinity gauge to as high as it can be, then advance the story by playing runs until you get the House Contractor job for Eldest Sigil Restoration, which costs a lot of Darkness.
|Fulfill the ‘Chthonic Colleagues’ Prophecy
|This is the prophecy to encounter all the Chthonic Gods, as displayed in the Codex. This will eventually be done after enough runs.
|Fulfill the ‘War-God’s Bloodlust’ Prophecy
|This is the prophecy to slay 10,000 shades, and then talk to Ares. To keep track of how many kills you have done, purchase the Pool, Scrying from the House Contractor for Zagreus’ Bedchambers.
|End to Torment
|Fulfill the ‘End to Torment’ Prophecy
|This is the prophecy to lighten Sisyphus’ sentence. Max out your affinity with him by gifting him Nectar, and eventually you will be able to purchase the Knave-King’s Sentence from the House Contractor.
|Musician and Muse
|Fulfill the ‘Musician and Muse’ Prophecy
|This is the prophecy to reunite Eurydice and Orpheus. Max out your affinity with them by gifting them Nectar, and eventually you will be able to purchase the Singer’s Gamble from the House Contractor.
|Divided by Death
|Fulfill the ‘Divided by Death’ Prophecy
|This is the prophecy to reunite Achilles and Patroclus. Max out your affinity with them by gifting them Nectar, and eventually you will be able to purchase the Hero’s Sacrifice from the House Contractor.
|Fulfill the ‘Dark Reflections’ Prophecy
|This is the prophecy to clear a run with each of the 24 Mirror of Night talents at least once. Be warned – some of the talents are harder to get value out of than others.
|Fulfill the ‘Harsh Conditions’ Prophecy
|This is the prophecy to clear a run with each of the 15 Pact of Punishment conditions at least once. Some conditions are harder to handle than others. Be wary.
|Master of Arms
|Fulfill the ‘Master of Arms’ Prophecy
|This is the prophecy to clear a run with each of the 6 Infernal Arms. Rotate between each of the arms to get used to each of their quirks.
|Fulfill the ‘Slashed Benefits’ Prophecy
|This is the prophecy to slay foes with each of the 11 Perks from the Pact of Punishment’s ‘Benefits Package’ Condition. Keep playing runs with Benefits Package enabled once the Pact is unlocked, but be warned that these perks make some foes significantly trickier.
|Back to Work
|Earn access to and enter the Administrative Chamber
|After a flashback dream where Zagreus blunders through a work shift in the Administrative Chamber, purchase the Administrative Privilege from the House Contractor to regain entry.
|The Family Secret
|Complete the main quest in the story
|Clear 10 runs total to complete the story and see the credits.
|One for the Ages
|Reach the epilogue of the story
|There are multiple requirements to trigger the Epilogue quest, which occurs after the main quest. Attempt to max out the affinity gauges of all the Olympian Gods (you can forge bonds with all except Demeter – aim to forge at least 5 and max out Demeter’s affinity gauge until the lock), learn about Persephone’s backstory from Demeter and Zeus (for the latter, try picking Zeus boons after picking Demeter boons), and continue playing runs. Eventually, Persephone will give you the quest, which involves accepting a boon from each Olympian God at least once.
|Buy 9 ‘Well of Charon’ items in one escape attempt
|Self-explanatory. Each Well of Charon sells 3 items; buy up all that you can afford.
|Thorn of Thanatos
|Get 30% bonus damage with the Pierced Butterfly
|It is recommended to attempt this with a max-rank Pierced Butterfly; at this rank, you only need to clear 15 rooms without taking damage. There will be an indicator of 2 circulating ‘lights’ on the keepsake on the left of the screen to show you whether you are still eligible for the bonus; if the indicator disappears, you’ve lost eligibility for that Encounter. Play safe, and preferably use a ranged weapon like the Heart-Seeking Bow or the Adamant Rail to stay out of harm’s way.
|Haste of Hermes
|Get 20% dodge chance with the Lambent Plume
|It is recommended to attempt this with a max-rank Lambent Plume; at this rank, you only need to clear 17 rooms quickly. There will be an indicator of a circle ticking down like a clock below the keepsake on the left of the screen to show you whether you are still eligible for the bonus; if the indicator disappears, you’ve lost eligibility for that Encounter. Be as gung-ho as you can, quickly cutting down enemies and wasting no time in moving to others.
|Beat Thanatos by 15 kills or more
|Self-explanatory. Can be a bit tricky, however – you need to make sure the encounter spawns enough shades to slay, and you need to have a good build that can quickly cut down enemies faster than Thanatos. Try your best to target whoever Thanatos is targeting so he does not add to his kill counter.
|Friends in High Places
|Use Greater Call to invoke an Olympian’s aid
|Self-explanatory. When a God offers you their Aid, take it, then charge your God Gauge up to maximum to use Greater Call.
|Use an Olympian’s Greater Call against them in a Trial
|Self-explanatory. This may require a bit of luck to set up, as you need enough boons for a Trial to spawn, and you need the aid from one of those Gods. Pick the boon from the other God (the one that did not give you their aid), charge your God Gauge up to maximum, and use the Greater Call. It can be difficult to charge up the God Gauge if there are (likely) not enough mobs to kill for charge; if needed, willingly take damage to charge it up faster. If you’re lucky enough to get a Trial in Elysium with Exalted spawns, continually kill them then let their souls re-arm.
|Slay Skelly 15 times
|Self-explanatory. To ‘cheese’ it, slay him 15 times in a row then head back to your bedchambers to save the game. Great weapon practice!
|Pet Cerberus 10 times
|Self-explanatory. You can get it slowly by petting Cerberus every run…or you can ‘cheese’ it by petting him 10 times in a row then head to your bedchambers to save the game. (Getting the achievement is also halfway towards getting Cerberus’ favor completed, as well.) I doubt he’ll mind getting 10 pets in a row, such is how good of a boy he is.
