For a few years now for me it was a bunch of EU IV achievements, mostly because achievements in that game require iron man mode and plenty of players don't do that. These were achievements that were done by 0.8% of players.

Yesterday I got a new one though and made me think of starting this thread as I'd find the responses interesting.

My rarest now is Dawi Dominance (0.4%), for Warhammer 2, and requires completing the Mortal Empires campaign as a Dwarf faction.

What's yours? Which game, what % and what is it awarded for?

You can easily determine this by temporarily setting your Steam profile to show achievements showcase, although I think you need a minimum Steam level of 10?

I have not looked through all of my games yet but I found one achievement I got from Total War: Attila where only 0.3% of the players got it.


Upping the Antes
Complete the Grand Campaign as the Anteans.

Ok I found an even rarer one.


Only 0.1% of players got this achievement in Total War: Rome II


Romanus Maximus
Complete the Empire Divided campaign as the Gothi.

That's as rare as you can get. Nice one PM.

As mentioned, if you set you profile for achievement showcase it will save you from looking through all of your games.

Funny how the first two are from Total War games.

Now this other one I have I find very interesting:


One Arrow, Two Hawks
Playing as any faction, win a multiplayer co-op campaign.


This is from Total War: Three Kingdoms and only 1.1% of players have this achievement. I'm just stunned to see how unpopular it is to play coop campaigns at least in this TW title.

I need to play more of my games I guess

Cannot find the setting for the achievements to show all at once on the web interface here at work
but from a quick check mine might be:

8.4% - Gentleman's Caller - Dishonored


"I'm a hundred miles away son, ready to strike"

Great game Dishonored, and we aren't racing here (and if we were, PM already is at least tied for first lol)

I'm just curious to see the answers. Thanks DK for the reply.

It's interesting what you can learn by these percentages as PM alluded to. You know, you play a good game but notice that only 24% of players have completed the first chapter, or whatever, and you wonder how it's possible. But the numbers are likely misleading, and maybe they are actually a % of owners, not necessarily players. Like I bought Frost Punk a couple years ago and never played it or installed it. Am I part of the player pool? So this is just for kicks to see what folks say.

And like for PMs comment, maybe lots of people do play TW co-op, but the number who actually see through to completion is minuscule, ya know?

I just looked that one up and I never got it even though I played through Dishonored twice!

This is a great point you bring up. Are the achievement percentages based on the number of people who have actually installed and played the game or is it based on the total number of people who bought the game on Steam? I have a couple of friends on Steam who have huge backlogs of games they have bought but haven't even gotten around to installing them yet so I'm sure there is a significant number of Steam players in general who have the same situation.

You completed all the Granny Rags side missions

Visit Granny Rags

After Corvo enters Granny Rags' residence and interacts with her for the first time, three members of the Bottle Street Gang arrive to extract "payment" from her. Granny Rags asks Corvo to deal with her "gentleman callers."

When the thugs are dispatched, Granny Rags will ask Corvo to strike back at the gang by contaminating their bootleg elixir still with a plague rat viscera, which can be found at the Offices of Dr. Galvani.

Some interesting Dishonored trivia:

Granny Rags was voiced by Susan Sarandon.

And Callista was Cersei and I think Princess Leia did one of the characters too, if I recall.

Another thing about these numbers is that certain games give you so many paths, and have achievements specific to that path. Like EU IV and Total War, where the achievements are for specific factions, which many never even play so rarity is easier to achieve. In a game like Dishonored though we all have the same opportunity for the most part, with certain allowances depending on builds or alternate characters. Subnautica is the only game out of a couple hundred that I've hit 100%, and in that one 8% have completed the game. But who knows, maybe 20% never even played it.

Cool, playing it the way it's meant to be played, and I guess showing that most players don't go full real maybe. Full real, when's the last time I used that phrase? Il-2 probably biggrin

To this day I've never played any racing sim "full real" but the closest I got was with "Grand Prix Legends" simply because there were very, very few driving aids in that sim. GPL really kicked my a$$.

Haven't checked, but I've got ~700 hours or so in ArmA3 and I don't believe I've achieved a single thing biggrin

Unless there's some sort of low-hanging achievement like just opening the editor.
