For tips & tricks on how to complete an achievement, see the achievements category.

EU4 has 185 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 achievements at Steam.

The difficulty of each achievement varies; some achievements are very easy (e.g. signing a royal marriage with another country), while some are extremely difficult (e.g. conquer the world as Ryukyu). 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 with historical nations started at 11 November 1444 (except Liberty or Death, which can only be gained in Ironman games started at 4 July 1776). They can be earned while playing older versions of the game as long as said achievements were present in that version. i. e. With 1.11 France, Azur semé de lis or is possible but Big Blue Blob is impossible because it was added in 1.12.

As of 1.14, some basic achievements can be earned while playing custom nation, namely For the Glory, That's a Grand Army, That's a Grand Navy, Defender of the Faith, Until death do us apart, That is mine!, Victorious!, Seriously?!, It's all about the money, Respected, True Catholic, Grand Coalition.

List of achievements

The "Patch" column indicates in which version a certain achievement was added. Achievements can't be received while playing any older version of game.

The "Notes" column specifies if an achievement can't be completed without the use of DLC mechanics (currently 35 out of 185) in addition to other helpful short tips.

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.
