Unofficial Achievement List (Revisited)

Recommended Posts

Awhile ago I posted an "Achievement" List for Don't Starve based on doing various mundane things in games to earn "points" just to see how many I could do and how many points I can rack up. The link to the original discussion is apparently missing, Idk if it was just so old it got deleted, or what happened but oh well. It was last worked on in 2016 anyway. Some Items on this list were suggested by players previously, I'm sorry I won't be able to properly credit your ideas. (New suggestions will be credited)

I was working with another user to make it into a "mod" but that idea quickly died as we moved onto other things and I lost interest in this game. I still enjoy it and come back occasionally though, and this is one of those times. I found my original list in a word document on my PC and decided to update this concept for the current version of the game, including DST.

This is going to be a long post, and will be edited as new ideas and concepts come to me. People are allowed to suggest ideas for Achievements and if they seem reasonable I will add them! 

General Information: I am doing this for something fun to do. The points are meaningless except for personal accomplishment, and nearly EVERYTHING in game can earn points, that's the whole point of this. Seeing how many things you can do in game. They are organized by Building, Fighting, etc, and even Character Specific categories. There is separate sections for the stand alone game, including it's expansions, as well as DST exclusive content. I am posting in the DST section because of that and also because based on my experience, most people are playing the DST version of the game nowadays anyway. If this should be moved to the base game form, I request to be notified so I can do so without loosing everything I have written.


Welcome to Magicphobic's unofficial achievement list for Don't Starve and Don't Starve Together!

**This list is still a work in progress and thus some suggestions/ideas may not be added and or finished yet, and some categories and characters may be missing! Please keep this in mind, and rest assured EVERYTHING will be added by the end goal.**

Doesn't this seem incredibley easy with some characters, like maxwell and wormwood?

Actually, isn't it just easy?


Also nice list, perhaps a 30 point achievement for defeating ancient fuelweaver?

That's true! I'll edit the conditions adding different points depending on which characters you play. I mostly just run default Wilson so I'm oblivious to how easy/hard some stuff can be.

Road kill:

Get killed by a moleworm

I'd love to add this but I need to fact check if they can damage you to make that possible. In my experience they just run away when you start combat.

Ooh! I've got some ideas!


Hard Worker:

Speed craft 15 items


Brain Fog:

Slowly craft 10 items without refilling hunger


We can do it!:

Kill a giant with only your catapults


A Day in the spotlight:

Use nothing but your spotlight as a light source for a few days (not sure)


She could do better:

Examine and mine a Maxwell statue "So this is Maxy..."



Spice of Life:
Give yourself and 2 teammates 3 simultaneous buffs

C'est Magnifique!:

Cook a Warly only dish

C'est La Guerre:
Consume a Grim Galette while your sanity is really low.

Boil em, Mash em, Stick em in a stew:
Cook and consume all the potato dishes at once

An Accomplished Butcher:
Kill 15 mobs while powered up with chili flakes
