Achievements (specifically Xbox 360 Achievements, Steam Achievements and PlayStation 3 Trophies) are awards given to the player for accomplishing various milestones in the game. Fifty achievements and fifty-one trophies are available in the basic game. Hearthfire adds five achievements and Dawnguard and Dragonborn add ten achievements each.

On the Xbox 360, a total of one thousand Gamer Points are available in the base game, or 1,550 points with all add-ons installed; the "Points" column in the following table provides the Gamer Points associated with each specific achievement. On the PC, Steam achievements stand on their own and don't include points. In addition, use of console commands and mods on the PC version does not prevent the awarding of achievements. On the PS3, the Trophies are sorted into types: Bronze, Silver and Gold. Earning every trophy from the base game will unlock a Platinum trophy.

The Special Edition has a separate achievement list for Steam, Xbox One, and PS4, meaning they can be earned twice by playing both versions of the game. Note that the use of mods in the Special Edition disables achievement progress on both PC and console. Since the Special Edition comes with all three major add-ons, the achievement list contains all of the below add-on-related achievements by default (i.e. 75 achievements or 76 trophies). The use of Creations does not disable achievements as they are official content.

Similar to the Special Edition, Skyrim VR also has a separate achievement list for Steam and PS4. The use of mods disables achievement progress on PC.

More detailed information on how to unlock each achievement can be obtained by clicking on the achievement's name.

Missable Achievements[edit]

Most of the achievements can be obtained regardless of your previous game choices. However, a handful of achievements can be missed:


  • PC Achievements can occasionally be missed by Steam, even though they have been completed in-game.
    • To fix this, reload an earlier save and re-complete the achievement.
    • Making sure that the "Steam Community In-Game" is enabled (from the Steam client's settings) before starting the game prevents this issue.
