Minecraft Achievements FAQ

 

This article applies to Minecraft achievements only.  For information on Minecraft: Java Edition achievements See: Minecraft: Java Edition Achievements FAQ.

 

Can I Turn Achievements on and off in Realms? 

If your Realm is set to Creative mode, achievements will be disabled for your world. Unfortunately, re-activating achievements is only possible if you have a backup from before Cheats or Creative mode was enabled. If no backups are available, then that world will remain without achievements enabled.  

 

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:
