Achievements Not Unlocking

In Minecraft, achievements serve as an incentive to complete goals and milestones. These do not impact the gaming experience in any way. However, some players covet them because of the progress they represent.


Players may occasionally find that when they reach an objective, the achievement is not immediately unlocked. This can happen for a few reasons that vary based on gaming platform and version. 


The following guidance helps you troubleshoot on each device or platform.
 

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. 

We recommended that you give the game 24 hours to display that the advancement has been completed. 

 

Minecraft for Windows 10 

Please allow up to 24 hours for the achievement to display. After that, if achievements are still not displaying in-game for you, follow these steps to troubleshoot the problem: 

  • Make sure you are connected to the internet and that your game is up to date. 
  • Restart the game and your PC. 
  • If possible, reattempt the feat that gained you the achievement. 
  • Back up your save data and uninstall Minecraft and reinstall it on your system. 

 

Minecraft for Xbox One and Series X|S 

Please allow up to 24 hours for the achievement to display. After that, if achievements are still not displaying in-game for you, follow these steps to troubleshoot the problem: 

  • Make sure you are connected to the internet and that your game is up to date. 
  • Make sure you are actively connected to Xbox Live. For more help, see Troubleshoot your Xbox network connection.
  • Restart the game and console. 
  • If possible, reattempt the feat that gained you the achievement. 
  • Back up your save data and uninstall Minecraft and reinstall it on your console. 

 

Minecraft on Nintendo Switch or PlayStation® 4  

Please allow up to 24 hours for the achievement to display. After that, if achievements are still not displaying in-game for you, follow these steps to troubleshoot the problem: 

  • Make sure you are connected to the internet and that your game is up to date. 
  • Restart the game and console. 
  • If possible, reattempt the feat that gained you the achievement.
