    Starcraft 2 Achievements Guide

    Achievements are an important part of Starcraft 2. Most of the game’s missions can be completed easily on the lower difficulties, but you won’t be able to unlock all of the achievements. You’ll usually have to go back and play a mission a second or third time to try and complete the mission’s challenge.

    In this guide we will list the achievements that are included as part of the game’s single player missions. As mentioned, many of these achievements will require that you achieve specific objectives or play on Hard difficulty. Note that the achievement names do provide some minor spoilers, so read at your own risk.
