Achievement Guide
Dominator Dominator
Capture all spawn points during a multiplayer domination game

Create a multiplayer Domination game with another human player.
Select the map The Eternal Guardians.

Click advanced options
Time limit: 10** (see below)
Crate Drop Period: 10# (see below)
Starting Powerups: 3

** adjust time to fit your preferences but this setup requires a little bit of focus. Additionally, the achievement requires nearly six minutes to complete under optimum conditions.

# Increases the liklihood of getting speed boosts, turrets, or other useful things. I highly recommended this to speed things up.



While one player remains static, the other begins the setup. The object is to capture all of the spawn points on the map. On this particular map there are eight and they form a horseshoe around the central mountains / magical forest. This requires the use of *officers (see below)

When the time comes to attack the final spawn, just kill your opponent’s multiwinians as fast as you can. Use whatever powerups you may have at your disposal and flood the base.
The opponent can help speed this along by sending his or her units to random locations away from spawn points.
Eventually the opponent will be eliminated and the achievement will unlock.

Officers

To make an officer (unit that can direct other multiwinians to specific locations) right click a singular multiwinian. A blank flag will appear. Move your cursor to the spot you wish your multiwinians to travel and right click again. The flag will become an arrow pointing in the desired direction. You will do this for each spawn point forming a chain.
The result will look similar to the above picture.

Hoarder Hoarder
Capture twice as many statues as your opponents in multiplayer Capture the Statue game (minimum 3 statues)

Create a multiplayer Capture the Statue game with another human player.
Select the map The Unending Peaks.

Click on advanced options
Time limit 5
Sudden Death: UNCHECKED
Retribution Mode: UNCHECKED

Send a group of multiwinians to the statue in the center of the map and then to the designated colored ring. When the multiwinians arrive at the statue they should attempt to move it on their own. However if not, simply instruct them to do so.

The statues takes a few moments to respawn after capture.
Repeat 3x

Under optimum conditions (other player is idle) it takes roughly 3-4 minutes to make the required 3 captures.

Hail to the King Hail to the King
Win a King of the Hill game with at least 50% more points than the nearest opponent

Create a multiplayer King of the Hill game with another human player.
Choose Map: The Eternal Guardians

When in lobby, click advanced options
Time limit: 1
Retribution Mode: UNCHECKED
Sudden Death: UNCHECKED

The player will then order his or her multiwinians to march into a large grey ring located directly in front of his or her’s spawn zone. After one minute achievement will unlock.

Alternatively; one can use any settings they desire against an AI opponent, that is provided the game is set to “multiplayer: king of the hill.”
Win with twice as many points as bot. glhf^^

Unclad Skies Unclad Skies
Win a game of Rocket Riot with no rocket damage, before any of your opponents reach 50% fuel

The easiest way to accomplish this is with a static human opponent on the map Stairway to Heaven.
While your opponent twiddles his thumbs, rush the fuel generators and get your rocket fueled up as fast as you can. When the time comes, send your multiwinians to the rocket and they will begin piling in. When the rocket reaches 100 multiwinians it will lift off.
Assumming your opponnent did jack-sh*t: Achievement Unlocked.

*When one successfully sets up the grind for Genocide, this achievment will probably occur naturally in the process.

Aggravated Assault Aggravated Assault
Finish defending a game of Assault without giving up a single Control Point

A patch sometime in either 2011 or 2012 broke this achievement.


At one time this achievement required that four human players on opposing teams complete a multiplayer Assault game without one of these teams losing a single control point to their opponents. If AI was present it did not unlock. Now it does not unlock at all.

Master Player Master Player
Defeat someone who is already a Master Player

This is a self explanatory viral achievment.
However, even from a completely non-cynical standpoint Multiwinia is a broken game with a positively barren online playing community making this achievement seemingly impossible to earn.

An exhaustive list of players who have earned this achievement is available

Here[achievementstats.com]


Those are all actual human beings who can potentially lose a game and thus assist the player in earning the Master Player Achievement

This requires the player to be social and utilize the private messaging services available here on Steam to contact one of the humans and then politely ask him or her to help earn this achievement.
…and hey! Free new friend!

Recomended settings for greater efficiency:
When in lobby, click advanced options
Time limit: 1
Retribution Mode: UNCHECKED
Sudden Death: UNCHECKED


As an aside, Garry Newman has this achievement. …Ask for help pertaining very specificly to this achievement for guaranteed lulz.

Master of Multiwinia Master of Multiwinia
Win a game on every single map available

There is great consensus among achievement hunters that both Explorer and Master of Multiwinia are broken and always have been. The closest thing resembling a clue I have found after trying to solve this riddle is an extra map located in main.dat that is some sort of unused sandbox/tutorial level. As proven by some enterprising Introversion forum users, this map can be exported through excrutiatingly exotic means and then played. Theoretically, Explorer atleast could be unlocked if this was the actual cause. So far I have found no one that has unlocked the achievement by this method.

Explorer Explorer
Play at least 1 game on every map

Hidden Achievement
Carnage Carnage
Kill over 2000 enemy Darwinians during a single game

The easiest achievement in the game unless you really, really, suck. You will get this one while completing many of the other achievements in this guide or by just playing the game regularly. Any game mode will work.

BlitzMaster BlitzMaster
Win a game of Blitzkrieg in under 5 minutes

Create a multiplayer Blitzkrieg game with another human player.
Select the map The Confrontation Point
Click advanced options.
Use pictured settings:



The object of this game mode is to raise the flag at various control points on the map. On this map there are three points; one at each spawn and one central point. It is also the smallest Blitzkrieg map. This requires the use of *officers (see below)

Just rush to the enemy spawn and kill them in under five minutes. with the addition of powerups, this can be sped up immensely.

To make a officer (unit that can direct other multiwinians to specific locations) right click a singular multiwinian. A blank flag will appear. Move your cursor to the spot you wish your multiwinians to travel and right click again. The flag will become an arrow pointing in the desired direction.

Wrong Game Wrong Game
Nuke one of your allies spawn points during a co-operative game

Create a multiplayer Domination match with four human opponents.
*This achievement will not unlock with AI present.
Select the map The Holy Tree

Open the Advanced Settings tab and use the following setup:

  • The altered crate drop period will make crates appear every 5-15 seconds.
  • By giving yourself 3 random powerups at start, you are upping your odds of getting a nuke that way also.

Nukes are found in crates. If you did not start the game with a nuke as one of your starting powerups, play the game until a crate spawn gives you a nuke. Select the Nuke power-up and place your mouse cursor directly onto one of your ally’s spawn points. launch the nuke.
Achievement unlocked.

Genocide Genocide
Kill a total of 1,000,000 enemy Multiwinians

Here is a very useful video tutorial made by Smacklefunky, the creator of 100% achievement group. This tutorial applies to a human or AI opponent. Please take note that progress for Genocide will be saved upon completion of the match. Incomplete matches do not contribute to total kills.
