Ahhhhh, modern games. Quest for Infamy may glean much of its inspiration from retro roots, but it's still a title from 2014, so it's no surprise that it's chalk-full of achievements. They're spread high and low throughout the game, often paired with obscure or odd actions, and though you may find some of the achievements automatically you'll have to do some weird, optional stuff to find them all.

Below is a list of the achievements in Quest for Infamy, and what you need to do to trigger them all. There will be spoilers, so if you don't want the story ruined, turn back now.


A Paladin loves you - Free Serena and the other prisoners from Rayford's dungeon in the third act.

A Regular Wilberforce - Kill the slave trader.

Act I - Complete Act I of Quest for Infamy.

Act II - Complete Act II of Quest for Infamy.

Act III - Complete Quest for Infamy, in essence.

An Arrow through your heart - Rescue Voleris and her soldiers from the locked barracks in Tyr during the third act. You'll have to kill the two guards in front of the barracks as well as unlock the door with a Lockpick or magic.

Beast Master - Kill the beast on your first day in Volksville.

Burn Baby Burn - Set the tree with the swing on fire. You'll find it south of Hermit Homestead. You can only set fire to it at night, as far as I know.

Clock Watcher - Wait the full fifteen minutes before the execution during the game's prologue. You need to either idle, wander around aimlessly, or just not talk to the right people to get this achievement.

Collector of Useless Crap - Purchase the Diamond-Tipped Crowbar and the Holy Symbol, both for 500 bly. The Goods shop sells the Crowbar, while the Apothecary sells the Holy Symbol. A the name implies, both items are useless - you can find a Crowbar for free at the farm east of Volksville, and the Holy Symbol is worthless as a religious artifact - so you may want to save, buy these items for the achievement, and then reload.

Don't mess with a fat man - Spare Rayford after defeating him atop the lighthouse in the third act.

Expert Thief - Break into the four breakable-innable houses in Volksville. This article provides details on each.

To get the "You got coned" achievement: Go to a pub and keep drinking until you get totally wasted. You'll then wake up somewhere else (supposedly much later, although for me no time passed at all).

I'm not sure if you can do it in all pubs or if you always end up in the same place, but I had a few at the Salty Dog and ended up waking up in the barn.

Oh, and the name of the achievement comes from the object you find in your inventory. Who hasn't stolen one of those while pissed eh? :)

To get the "Collector of Useless Crap" achievement, collect a lot of... useless crap.

I'm not sure EXACTLY what you need, but for me it triggered after I had bought the hideously expensive crowbar from the goods store - so that's at least one of the items - but I had also bought one of everything from practically every shop by then.

Ahh, fair enough. I've seen the message about getting drunk a few times, but I never got around to ordering six or seven drinks, for some reason. Thanks.

@MattWritesStuff: If you buy the rum from the Salty Dog, you only need about three 'cos it's strong stuff... ;)

Speaking of the Salty Dog, not sure if these are related to achievements or not (can't remember if I got one for these or not), but they do get you infamy and/or blys (theoretically):

- pick-pocketing the "hero"

- "helping" the guy throwing up

I say "theoretically" because while the game says you get 500+ blys from pickpocketing the hero (the actual number appears to be random - maybe tied to your thievery stat?), after checking my inventory it turns out I didn't actually get squat! But you definitely get infamy by doing it.

Yes, I stole from them, too, and I was starting to think that maybe you could pickpocket from other people if your Thievery stat was high enough. Set out to do a pickpocketing walkthrough 'n everything. As far as I can tell, though, they're the only two people from whom you can steal with the Hand tool. Now I don't know where to put that info. Hrm.

Also figured out the Collector achievement. The achievement's picture is the clue - you need to buy the Crowbar and the Holy Symbol. Tricksy game, this...

Thanks! Much appreciated on the offer. I'm hoping to wrap up the walkthrough over the next few days, but if I run into anything that confuses me I'll give you a shout. Thanks very much for making such a fun game. I hope I'll get to pound out a walkthrough for the sequel(s), as well.

If you turn in the holy artifact to Sven who is on the hermits homestead at night you will receive 1000 blys.
