Achievements can be a great addition to a game like CIU, where exploration is key. Players like to gain 100% completion in games, and achievements make it not boring when doing self imposed tasks. Also instead of just another achievement for completing all achievements, players can get more paintjob options. And no, achievements will not be associated with medals just so it feels more original and not lazy. You can also add your own achievements, though follow the format and put your name on your achievement ideas so you get the credit for it.

Arent the medals achievements anyway?

Technically yes

I like the idea in general because I’ve already suggested something similar to this before, except for the part where those achievements were related to ribbons, badges and other profile customisation stuff. graphics for badge, ribbon and token in example was stolen from warface


They are, but they’re more like short term achievements. Proper Achievements are more for the completionists, and adds some more cheap content that the game desperately needs.

Yes, but medals are collectibles, not achievements. The number of them matters more than their obtaining, and thus, they make for poor achievements.

I’ve got an idea about topic.
Out of getting the achievements get some keys.
Add number of keys that will be awarded in the achievements.
Do you agree spryter?

That is a valid option, though giving players keys everytime can make the rewards feel not thought of at all and implemented lazily. Paintjobs or anything else can make for better rewards, though giving keys in some places can also work.


I don’t think achievements are strictly necessary (especially if we already have medals), but I want to add a few fun ones to the list regardless.

Chicken Waveologist: Clear every type of wave at least once.

I’ll try them all: Use every weapon type in a single mission (Moron not required).

Custom Built: Modify every customization option on a single spaceship.

Really Custom Built: Mount five or more hardpoints on a single spaceship.

Old School: Clear the 120th Anniversary Mission using only the Ion Blaster.

Boy Genius: Clear a 100% or higher difficulty mission using only the Neutron Gun.

Perfect Shot: Hit five chickens with a single Laser Cannon shot.

Unlimited Power: Using only the Lightning Fryer, simultaneously inflict damage on more than ten chickens.

Stay Focused!: Fly an entire mission with the Vulcan Chaingun without letting weapon heat exceed 50%.

Like spreading butter on a chicken sandwich: Clear an entire wave with the Plasma Rifle without releasing the fire button. (No Satellites or Special Weapons allowed).

A Delicate Balance: Using only the Boron Railgun, clear an entire mission in a “Hot” environment without overheating your weapon.

Lazy Pilot: Obtain clean sweep with the Photon Swarm without moving your spaceship. (No Satellites or Special Weapons allowed).

Now Streaming: Win a league challenge using only the Positron Stream.

Hyperactive!: Using the Hypergun, get five consecutive Clean Sweeps in a Classic Mission.

Marksman: Using the Riddler, complete an entire mission with an average accuracy of 90% or more.

I don’t bring snacks to the movies: Using the Corn Shotgun, fly twenty consecutive waves without reaching maximum heat.

POW: Destroy fifty chickens with a single Absolver Beam blast.

Use the Forks: Defeat the Yolk-Star™ using only the Utensil Poker.

Thenos: Destroy exactly half of the targets in a single wave.


Medals are just additional things you earn in a mission if you’re not playing competitive. Achievements however can only be achieved once, and are more unique from the medals and act as milestones for the player. They can also reward you with something, though I recommend paintjobs. It’s more content for the completionists.

Yeah, I tried to come up with the sort of thing that you wouldn’t want to shoot for more than once.

Also, one more:

My tongue got thtuck to the winthield!: Fly twenty waves in a “Cold” environment without dying.


Not related to current convo, but if that’s not the funniest line in CI5 I don’t know what is. Besides the Swedish couch, that is.


You guys seems to forgot that this stuff is really good for Steam version of CIU…maybe


Hard completionist grind awards like “kill Yolk Star 1000 times” are a big no-no for Steam awards. Either make it easier or be more creative.

Yeah, achievements should go fine. Wonder what IA has to say about this.


I second this. One of my main thoughts was making this was to not include grinding medals or even if they were there, they should be achievable without players going out of their way to do it. Achievements about Idea and Bug medals also shouldn’t be added because many players won’t have been on Forums.

Not really canon: Defeat The Egg Cannon Cannon Cannonade for the first time.


I suspect if we’re going to get Steam Achievements at all, iA will probably just make them correspond to medals.

That’s a great name, and very clever. I love it. :joy:
