Achievements Not Unlocking

In Minecraft, achievements serve as an incentive to complete goals and milestonesThese do not impact the gaming experience in any way. However, they are coveted by some players because of the progress they represent. 

Players may occasionally find that when the objective is reached, the achievement is not immediately available. This can happen for a few reasons which will vary based on gaming platform and version. 

Below you will find troubleshooting for each device/platform for guidance. 

 

Minecraft: Java Edition 

For Java versions 1.12 and higher, achievements are referred to as advancements. Advancements can represent different types of milestones such as normal game progression or challenges that do not require completion. 

  • It is recommended you give the game 24 hours to display that the advancement has been completed.
