Terraria has tons of achievements to unlock as you explore the world, some which are easy to unlock and some which require more work to complete. Our Terraria achievements guide lists out the various achievements for PC and mobile, as well as the consoles Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, all updated for patch 1.4.

Many of Terraria’s achievements will unlock as you progress naturally. Each boss in the game has a corresponding achievements, and you’ll unlock tons of them as you enter new biomes, mine new materials, and keep making new items. However, there are tons of achievements you can only obtain from beating rare enemies or making specific items, so you’ll definitely want to keep track of these.

Achievements will still unlock in Terraria’s “Journey Mode” which serves as the games sandbox mode, so keep this in mind as you can’t reset achievements on most platforms (including Steam) without using a third-party program.

Below we list all the achievements you can get in Terraria for Steam, mobile devices, PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. There are also a handful of achievements that are PC and mobile only, which we’ve labeled as such.
