This article is considered accurate for the current version (1.5) of the game.

Stellaris has 65 different achievements, all using the Steam achievements mechanics. Achievements have no in-game effects, the achievement just pops up in-game and than added to the player's Steam profile. It is possible to see the achievements sorted by the percentage of users that managed to complete each achievement by going to the game's global stats at Steam.

The difficulty of each achievement varies; some achievements are very easy (e.g. colonizing a planet), while some are extremely difficult (e.g. end-game crisis achievements). The below list groups the various achievements by a difficulty level as assessed by the wiki editors (uncategorized - UC - achievements haven't been assessed yet).

Achievements can only be gained in Ironman games. They can be earned while playing older versions of the game as long as said achievements were present in that version.

List of achievements[edit]

The "Notes" column lists helpful short tips/strategies.

The Stellaris.png column denotes achievements which can't be completed without the use of DLC mechanics (currently 22 out of 65). Multiple expansion icons mean either can be used.

The "Ver" column indicates in which version a certain achievement was added. Achievements cannot be earned prior to the version they were added in.

The "DI" column is for difficulty as assessed by wiki editors. VE = Very Easy, E = Easy, M = Medium, H = Hard, VH = Very Hard, I = Insane, UC = Uncategorized.
