Achievement Guide and Roadmap
Thank you Gackt for making this banner!
Happy Wars is a free to play game developed by Toylogic and published by Microsoft Game Studios. It is exclusive to Xbox Live Arcade, and is the first ever free to play game on the Xbox 360 console. The game has two multiplayer modes (Quick Match and Co-op) and a single player story campaign. This game has 28 achievements that will be extremely time consuming! The original 20 achievements were not too lengthy and only took about 20 hours to complete, but a free Title Update was added in late May 2013 which came with 8 more achievements totaling 100G that make the gave a long completion. To earn any achievements in this game, you must have a connection to Xbox Live and a gold account. The game requires you to have an active connection, and a gold account is required because many of the achievements are related to multiplayer. The two most time consuming achievements are "Commander of the Light Knights" and "Happy Quest Hunter"; both of these achievements were released with the Title Update. Most of the remaining achievements shall unlock in the process of working towards the two previously mentioned achievements. The achievements are also rather easy with the exception of the "MVP" achievement. This achievement can be either be easy to obtain or difficult to obtain depending on the game you are attempting to get it in.
Step 1: Learn How to Play the Game
In this step, you will get yourself familiar with the game. When you first start up the game, choose single player and go to Tutorial mode. Play through all three tutorials available and learn how to use each of the three classes. After completing tutorial mode, play a match in Training mode. The following achievements should unlock in this step
Step 2: Multiplayer Part 1 - Rank Up for Story Mode
Multiplayer is where you will obtain a vast majority of your achievements in this game. For the purposes of this roadmap, Multiplayer has been split up into two different sections; the first section consists of quicker achievements and what should be accomplished before Story mode where the second section holds the much more time consuming achievements that only completionists and fans of the game will probably go for. In this Multiplayer step, you must play multiplayer matches until you reach Rank 26. This is because the game requires you to have a certain rank to unlock single player quests, and the last set of missions will unlock at Rank 26. However, I recommend playing until you reach at least Rank 30 so certain missions will be easier to manage due to more experience/better equipment/etc.
I recommend playing most of your matches in Quick Match because you will gain more experience and there seems to be less waiting time. Play at least one time through all three rounds of co-op. Play as all of the classes a few times and make sure you use all of the skills for each. While rankling up, try to work towards some of the more time consuming achievements and make sure you try to get the MVP quest out of the way. More details on that quest will be under the related achievement, MVP. These achievements shall unlock while playing through the first multiplayer step:
Step 3: Improve Items
This step can be done while working on Step 2. Once you have some Happy Stars, go into Dress Up and Power Up. Choose Item Modification an add a buff to an item. Then go into Item-Level Up and level one item all the way to level 15. This step is also a good time to spin the Happy Spinner one time if you have not already done so. The achievements you will get by doing this are:
Step 4: Story
Now, it is time to play the single player campaign. If you have listened to the recommendation mentioned prior in Step 2, you shall be rank 30 or higher and have some good equipment. This will make most of story mode very easy. There should only be two levels that may provide trouble. Those will be mentioned in the "It worked!" achievement. You should have these achievements after beating the story:
Step 5: Multiplayer Part 2 - Rank and Quests
This Multiplayer step will be where most of your time is spent. In this step, you will need to reach Rank 50, which will take approximately 150 hours or more depending on how well you are doing in the game. You will also be completing a good majority of the 72 quests that are available in the game; 60 must be completed in order to get all quest related achievements. Three of the more time consuming quests in the game are also achievements as well, the most time consuming one being the "Archangel" achievement, so you will want to work on these while ranking up. The following achievements will be earned in this Multiplayer step:
Happy Wars will be very time consuming to complete because of certain achievements, but most of them will unlock as you are working towards them. Even though this may take a long time to complete, it is easy, simple, and enjoyable to play. If you have followed this guide diligently, you shall now finally have all 28 achievements in Happy Wars! Congratulations on your new 500!

First Victory 10
Get 1 victory in any game session
This achievement is for winning a game once. This shall unlock naturally as you work on other achievements.
Gang Up 10
Launch a Team Skill and get a kill in a Quick Match or Co-op mode
For this achievement, you need to use a Team Skill and get at least one kill from it. Team Skills will show up randomly as you level up in a match or if you have an item that unlocks the skill as soon as the match starts. If you have a team skill, press to begin it. Several circles will now show up on the screen. Other players on your team need to fill these circles. Press again to launch the skill once enough team members fill the circles. Skills that can be used for this are the Warrior's Group Rush, and the Mage's Lightning Arrows, Tornado, and Meteor Shower.
Hello World 10
Use a talk or order commands 4 times in a Quick Match or Co-op mode
To talk or order a command, press . This will bring up a menu with 4 options. Press a button for one of those options to talk. Repeat these steps 3 more times to unlock the achievement.
All Rounder 10
Use Warrior, Cleric, and Mage 2 times each in a Quick Match or Co-op mode
Simply use all of three classes at least two times for this achievement to unlock. This does not need to be in the same match and can be spread out in multiple matches.
The Legend Begins 10
Receive mention in Hero Pop-up in a Quick Match or Co-op mode
The Hero Pop-up shows up for random things like healing 10 people in a match, resurrecting 5 people in a match, constructing 3 towers, getting the first kill, getting 10 kills without dying, and other things. This achievement should unlock naturally as you go for the other achievements in the game.
Battle Master 10
Use all skills in a Quick Match or Co-op mode
To get this achievement, you will need to use every skill available for all three classes. This does not need to be done in a single match because that would be impossible (skills are unlocked randomly as you level up in a match, and you will not have every skills in a match at the max level). I recommend using the list below and crossing off skills as you go so you know what skills you still need to use. The list of skills that must be used is listed are as follows:
skill: Cheer, Group Rush, Iron Phalanx
skill: Roar, Rocketman, Stone Throw, Super Guard
skill: Charge Attack, Smash, Spinning Blade, Rush
skill: Happy Miracle, Sacred Song, Transport
skill: Dash, Sacred Armor, Summon Materials, Wall
skill: Dispel, Heal, Resurrect, Sanctuary
skill: Lightning Arrows, Meteor Storm, Tornado
skill: Blizzard, Lightning Strike, Magic Napalm, Wind Trap
skill: Fire Enchant, Ice Enchant, Lightning Enchant, Wind Enchant
Rich Man 10
Get 30 items
When a game is completed, you will gain items. As you play along, you shall get more and more items. This achievement shall unlock naturally as you go for the other achievements, so do not worry about it.
The Blacksmith 10
Modify an item and add a buff to it
To unlock this achievement, you will need to add a buff to one of your items. In order to add a buff you an item, you must have an empty slot available on the item. You can check the item's stats to see if the item has an empty slot available. You also must have another item that has a white buff on it. It must be white, because the orange buffs are permanently attached to that specific item, and the purple buffs are negative and can only be removed. To add or remove buffs, go to Dress Up and Power Up, and then select Item Modification. Choose your item with an empty slot, and then choose the item with the white buff that you want added to your other item. You will need some Happy Stars to perform the item modification, and then if you have enough, the achievement shall unlock.
MOD 0 10
Level-up an item
For this achievement, you will need to level up an item. You can level up an item under Dress Up and Power Up, and then by choosing Item Level-Up. In order to level up an item, you will need other items to use as materials as well as the required amount of Happy Stars. To level up your item, choose the item you want to level up, and then choose the items you wish to use as materials. As long as you have enough Happy Stars to perform the level-up, you will obtain your achievement.
Spin Spin Spinner 10
Play the Happy Spinner
The Happy Spinner is located under Spinner and Cards. You should see a wheel when you select the Happy Spinner. Simply spin the wheel once in order to get this achievement. You will need at least 300 Happy Stars to spin the wheel.
Nobody Calls Me Noob 20
Complete all of the tutorials
You must play the tutorials for the Warrior, the Cleric, and the Mage in order to get this achievement. Once you finish all three, the achievement shall unlock.
Standing On My Own 20
Reach rank 20
You will need to reach rank 20 by playing multiplayer matches in either Quick Match or Co-op. As you keep playing matches and gain experience, your rank will increase. I recommend playing a lot of Quick Matches because it seems to be quicker for gain experience.
Unlock the "MVP" quest in a Quick Match or Co-op mode
This achievement requires you to get the most kills as well as the least deaths in the SAME match. Contrary to what many players may think, THIS ACHIEVEMENT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH GETTING MVP IN A MATCH! Getting MVP in a match and the MVP achievement/quest are completely unrelated. You also can not tie with someone else for kills or deaths or the achievement will not unlock. To check how many kills and deaths everyone in the match has, hit and then . To make this achievement easier for you, try having a friend with you in the match play as a cleric so they can heal you, keep you safe, and check periodically the stats in the game for you to make sure you have the most kills and least deaths.
Treasure Hunter 20
Get a premium item
Premium items are items that have a star by them. This achievement will unlock naturally as you go through story mode since a few premium items are rewards for completing certain missions.
The Best Items 20
Get a level 10 item
To get a level 10 item, you will need to level your items via the process explained under the "MOD 0" achievement. In order to level an item multiple times, you will need to have more Happy Stars and more items to use as materials per level up. Please see the "MOD 0" achievement for more information. It is best to go for this achievement on an item that is not a premium item. The reason for this is because eventually, you will need to level up other items that you are using as materials to level up the premium item. If you are leveling up a non-preminum item, you will not have to do this.
There is now also a Material Points Up buff in the game that may be found on any type of item present in the game. If an item has this buff, it will give more material points when you use it to level up another item. The extra material points depend on the level of the buff and are as follows:
Team Player 20
Win 3 matches in a row in Co-op mode
For this achievement, you will need to play all three rounds of co-op mode and win the matches in a row. This achievement will unlock after the last round as long as you won the other two and do not get disconnected during a match.
BOT Hunter 30
Get 1 victory in Training mode
Simply win a match in Training mode for this achievement. Since difficulty does not matter, you can choose the lowest difficulty, very easy, if you would like.

It worked! 30
Complete every Story Mission
To unlock all story missions, you must have a rank of 26 or higher. I recommend leveling up to rank 30 if you are having trouble beating some of the missions. Most missions are rather easy and straight forward, but there are two missions that seem to give people trouble in particular. These two missions are "War of the Worlds!" (4-2) and "The Final Battle" (6-2). I have included tips on both of these below that should hopefully help make these missions much easier for you.
For War of the Worlds, most people have a major issue with the AI allies because they tend to be very stupid and make choices that will make the mission an annoyance like constantly destroying the bridge to the enemy castle. To avoid this problem entirely and to make this mission a breeze, choose to play as a Cleric. When the level first starts, take the right path instead of going straight like the rest of your allies. Follow this path until you get to the enemy castle, and then build a cannon. Once it is built, shoot the castle gate from a distance until it is destroyed. Do not attack the gate from up close or else a lot more enemies will spawn. Here is a video that should help those having difficulty:
For The Final Battle, choose to play as a Mage. Make sure you have the Cosmic Wand equipped as well as Marshal's Hood. Both of these items are rewards from previous levels in story mode and are great items. Then, after you defeat each wave of enemies, go to a side of the castle. The melee enemies will come after you so defeat those when they come. Then, take care of the remaining mages at a distance if possible and take care of them one by one. This video may be helpful if you are having difficulty:
Happy War-Lord 60
Play 100 non-tutorial games
For this achievement, you will need to play 100 games that are not in tutorial mode. This should come naturally as you go for the other achievements. If for some reason you still do not have this after getting every other achievement, just keep playing multiplayer matches or story missions until this achievement unlocks.
You Rock! 60
Complete more than 40 quests
You must do at least 40 of the 72 quests to get this achievement. Most of these will unlock naturally over time like "Kill x amount of enemies as a __" or "Win x matches on the __ map" , where some may be more difficult like the "MVP" quest and "Get 30 kills without dying". To view which quests you have completed and which you have not completed yet, view your stats and hit . Quests must be completed in multiplayer matches.
DLC: Title Update
Knight of the Order of Light 10
Reach Rank 40
For this achievement, you will need to get to Rank 40 in Multiplayer; this will require you to obtain 180,000 points. Simply keep playing the game a lot in order to get points to rank up. This will take approximately 50 hours of play time.
Commander of the Light Knights 15
Reach Rank 50
For this achievement, you will need to get to Rank 50 in Multiplayer; this will require you to obtain 510,000 points. Like the "Standing On My Own" and "Knight of the Order of Light" achievements, this will unlock after spending a lot of time on the game and getting points. This will take approximately 150+ hours and is the most time-consuming achievement in the Title Update.
The Ultimate Craftsman 10
Raise the level of an item to Level 15
You will need to get an item to Level 15 for this achievement. First, you will need to get an item to Level 10. Please see "The Best Items" achievement for how to get an item to Level 10. Next, you will need to get 5 more of the item you want to get to Level 15. I highly recommend using an item you can commonly get for this achievement since it will be easier to get more of the item. The 5 items do not have to be leveled up at all; they can be kept at level 1. When you have 5 more of the item as well as a sufficient amount of Happy Stars to spend on leveling up the item, choose the item you want to get to Level 15, pick one of the other copies of that item as a material, and then pick the other materials. Repeat that four more times to get the item to Level 15.
The Beginning of a Quest 5
Complete at least 20 Quests
You will get this achievement while working towards the "You Rock!" and "Happy Quest Hunter" achievements. If you have completed 20 or more quests before the title update, you will need to play a match; the achievement shall unlock once the match is completed.
Happy Quest Hunter 15
Complete at least 60 Quests
This achievement is just like the "You Rock!" achievement, except it requires 60 quests out of 72 total quests. It is a good idea to work on this achievement while you are trying to reach Rank 50. Some of the Quests that shall unlock over time include:
The Godlike Swordsman 15
Complete the 'The Godlike Swordsman' Quest
This achievement requires you to use the Warrior to get 1,000 kills. A strong sword for this achievement is very helpful, so level up the Nouveau Riche Sword for good attack stats since it has Attack Lvl 2 and Attack Lvl 3 with it. Also, make sure you are comfortable with the Warrior's skills and know how to use them well. Rocketman and Charge Attack will be good skills to master for this achievement.
Thank you AOS Puck for the information!
Complete the 'Archangel' Quest
You will need to use the Cleric to heal people 10,000 times in order to unlock this achievement. The Sanctuary skill will not work for this achievement, you must use the Heal skill for the heal to count towards the achievement. This achievement will be very time consuming; the quickest way to get this is to spam the Heal skill as often as possible. Keep looking for team mates who get hit by enemy attacks, team mates who just finished building a tower, and team mates who are performing the Cheer and Sacred Song skills. These team mates will need to be healed and are good to spam the skill near, especially the ones involved in the Cheer and Sacred Song skills. It also helps to participate in these team skills because they will increase your HP and AP bars for a limited time; this will allow you to do more healing. Try to have equipment with buffs that will let you perform the Heal skill more often as well such as the "Conserve AP" buff.
The Devil 15
Complete the 'The Devil' Quest
This achievement requires you to use the Mage to get 1,000 kills. You should level up your strongest wand so you will be able to do a good amount of both magic and physical damage. Lightning Strike is a helpful skill and using it will help you get kills, especially where many enemies are in one spot. Enchant skills such as Fire Enchant are helpful as well. With some of the elemental enchants, you can hit + at the same time to shoot out a larger version of the element which does more damage if it hits, but also costs more AP and has a reduced range. You need to time it correctly or you will cast the spell instead. Try to use team skills often as they can help you get a lot of kills. If cast at the right time, Tornado can be your most dangerous skill. The down side is that it takes five people to cast and it can't enter or exit the castles nor cross over bridges. Meteor Storm can get you some decent kills if enemies are grouped together, but the down side is that it takes four people and the landing spots of the meteors are sporadic. Also, note that the Warrior's Super Guard skill can block meteors. Lightning Arrows are by far the easiest chance to get kills because it only requires two people to start and has the quickest recharge time. The down side is that the arrows are scattered; you only get credit for people you actually kill unlike Tornado and Meteor Storm where you get credit for all kills, and if someone hits you while you are shooting your arrows, you will get knocked out of the skill.
Thank you AOS Puck for the information!

Well, think I found a glitchy achievement. Got a premium item today from the treasure map, Treasure Hunter achievement did not unlock.
Update: the achievement unlocked when I won my next match, one of the special battles, before receiving my reward.

great guide, i have one question tho, do games played on the Special Challenge maps count towards Happy Warlord? these games seem to start far quicker from my personal experience, get bored waiting for the normal MP games to commence.

I've got a similar question: do the special challenges count toward Battle Master? I put in a good amount of time now that team skills seem to be working. I think I may have been down to the last one (I seem to have trouble having my mage unlock team skills...) when I realized that maybe it might not count...

I have just added some additional information under "The Best Items" achievement to clarify which kind of items you should level up while going for this achievement. It is best not to use premium items, but any other item should be fine.
