Rarest Achievement

#1 Posted by Dethfish (3739 posts) -

What is the rarest achievement (according to GB) you have gotten as of right now? Or maybe you'd like to tell us what achievement you're most proud of instead.

Mine is the Streak Masters achievement from GH 3. Sore Thumb Award from Boom Boom Rocket is third for me but I'm pretty proud of that one.

If you don't know how to find your rarest achievement, all you need to do is click the achievement tab on your profile page then scroll over to 'sort by achievement' and click 'rarity' on the drop down menu.

Uhh, I dunno, Inhuman Achievement maybe? Maybe Best of the Best in Vegas.

I like my Rock Band/Rock Band 2 achievements. I have Platinum Artist on each and a few other good ones.

I am so envious of the 2 people on this site that has the "superstar" achievement in mirrors edge.

Anyway, apparently my tomb raider legend dlc achievements are super rare, but Im most proud of some of my mirrors edge achievements and the smile achievement of geometry wars 2. The killtacular achievement in halo 3 was pretty cool, and Im also pretty proud of the "complete all 50 episodes" achievement in N+.

Little rocket man in episode two. Ill never forget that goshdarn gnome.....

My most rare is 1,000,000 Online credits in Forza 2, which is a pretty good accomplishment. Sadly most of my rare achievements are not that difficult and are just from games that people don't play. I do have the Taking it for the Team achievement in GTAIV though.

I still don't have my XBL achievements synced to my account yet...but my WoW achievements are!!!  Hopefully, that means my XBL stuff will be up before the end of the day, and I can share what mine is.  = D

My rarest achievement is in dbz burst limit. Finish survival mode. Im one of two people, but I think the rarest achievement in terms of ratio is Auf Wiederstein Petrovich in GTA IV. Four people out of four thousand have this achievement. It is by far the most riduculus achievement ever.

Fly The Co-Op for GTAIV. Those times were insane.

Well, I have around 15 "rare" achievements, but the first one on the list is "THIS! IS! ANNEX!" from Gears of War 1.

It was a real bitch to get, I remember, and I was the first one out of my entire GeoW friend community to get it (and those guys were super pissed because they considered themselves "god-like" at that game).

Here's the description: "Complete 100 multiplayer matches of 3+ rounds in Annex and capture 3 objectives in each match"

I never even bothered with that ridiculous achievement.

While not my rarest (though only out-rared by completing the Forest of Death with Sasuke in Naruto: Rise of a Ninja), I'm most proud of my "Survived 1,000,000 Points" achievement in Geometry Wars 1. Damn, that was an intense achievement.

I have the perfectionist achievement in Time Pilot which is shared by me, Jeff, and 8 others. Thats my rarest achievement and its out of about 800 people.

Yeah, that is probably mine. Simply hell going through that.
#20 Posted by RHCPfan24 (8663 posts) -

I am lacking in the rare achievement department. I need to get some rare achievements in Rock Band 2 and Left 4 Dead, and then I will be in a better standing. Right now, I have the "Hit 69 bikers with a bat" achievement as the one that pops up first (GTA IV L&D).

Mines some 30 point secret achievement from Star Ocean: The Last Hope.

#25 Posted by MKHavoc (1303 posts) -

Mine is Origami Master from Stranglehold.  You get it by finding 250 origami paper cranes hidden in the levels.  Whats weird is that the game will keep adding cranes even if you get the same one twice.  I had about 150 by the time I finished the game so I just kept replaying the first level (which had 12 cranes) until I got the 250.

I wish I knew. My achievements are still #384 in queue.

#27 Posted by ImperiousRix (3095 posts) -

At least two of my rare achievements (including the rarest, I believe) are from Turok multiplayer.  I'm probably MOST proud of my Hardcore achievement (earn 1,000 kills) in Team Fortress 2 on the Orange Box.

#28 Posted by lordofultima (6560 posts) -
@Pie: One of my favorite achievements for sure, not necessarily the "hardest," I'd say there's harder ones in The Orange Box in general (That stupid neighborhood achievement comes to mind). Goodbye little gnomey, we'll miss you!

#30 Posted by LordCrom (316 posts) -

I would mention my 7 rare achievements and how proud of them I am, but fear everyone would than attempt to get them and they would no longer be rare and than neither would I.....be rare. :P

#31 Posted by MetalGearSunny (7465 posts) -

If I could use the achievement system, I would have some rare ones in Rock Band 2.

Apparently my rarest achievement is the Liberty City Minute achievement in Grand Theft Auto IV. That being said, I have earned a few achievements since being back at Uni, but I won't be able to sync them to my LIVE account until the end of June.

#34 Posted by Archleone (49 posts) -

Technically my rarest achievement is The Horseman's Reins from WoW, but I'm proud of geting Heroic: The Twilight Zone (also from WoW) before they made it easy.to get.

#35 Posted by mordecaix7 (726 posts) -

Aha!  Figured it out :)  Anyway, 

My rarest achievement is "Hero of Nagoya" from Space Invaders Extreme (29 people unlocked so far not counting me) but it hasn't been updated on Giant Bomb yet :/

Reach a score of 5,000 or more by the end of Situation 5.

I don't know if I'm proud of it, really - and I'm surprised it's not lower. My guess is that not many people have fired the game back up since the patch that fixed the achievement, as it was busted for the longest time.

I'm most proud of Survivor, though. 13 of 1600 people have it, and earning that achievement was quite a struggle.

I have 56 rare achievements and the most rare would probably be one of the Dead Rising ones. Or possibly something Guitar Hero related.

#44 Posted by Shadow (5108 posts) -

I've got a couple that only a few other people on the site have.  As for my rarest, grand pearl pooh-bah on Hexic takes it, shortly followed by beating Ninja Gaiden 2 on master ninja, pimp killer on Saint's Row (at least I think that's what the secret achievement is), and getting all weapons in Earth Defense Force.  I'm perhaps the most proud of that one since I played that whole game solo (no splitscrean partner)

I have an "S-Rank" in Lost Odyssey. I think the P.Killaon achievement is secret and doesn't show up.

#48 Posted by cinemandrew (723 posts) -

I think my rarest one is a secret one for Marvel: Ultimate Alliance. So yeah... I'm very proud of it, whatever it is.

Indeed. It looks like a great achievement and there is no reason to be so sour about it. I will try it on my next playthrough of that game.

Gah! I still haven't been able to get that damn thing; most I got was 4 black pearls...

Many of my rare achievements are from games that not many people play, and the fact that they are insane collection based games.
