This guide may be outdated. Click here if you want to read the original and updated content about the Against the Storm 100% Achievement Guide.
This is intended to be a guide to collecting all of the Steam achievements in Against the Storm in what is hopefully a vaguely logical manner.
In-game achievements are called Deeds. Note that this guide’s scope only includes deeds with a corresponding Steam achievement. Completing deeds will earn you benefits like meta experience or decorations for your settlement. You can also track your current progress by clicking the checkbox on the right hand side of the deed. The tracker will appear on the right hand side side of the screen when the game is paused.
This guide is roughly sorted by difficulty, starting with the easier achievements and working up to the more difficult ones. It is intended for people who know the game basics and have at least a few Citadel upgrades.
As the game is still in Early Access, guide contents are subject to change. It is very much a work in progress.
