LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean

LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean Achievements

Pieces of Eight

Reach 888,888,888 studs  

This would take a long time to reach if not for the stud multipliers obtained by buying certain red hats. To make this even faster you can have multiple multipliers turned on and their affect is cumulative. So if you have x2, x8 and x10 turned on you will have a total multiplier of x160. If you have them all on along with "Always Double Treasure" you will have over an x7000 multiplier and will reach the required total in no time.

The red hats are found in the hub. See "You may throw my hat" for more information and a location guide.

So if I buy this, I'll need to dedicate all of my time way from Mortal Kombat, Portal 2, LA Noire, Brink, until Skryims release? Oh how I hate odd achievements.

quit you're whining! ;)

won't be that hard once you whack all the x10, x8, x6, x4 & x2 cheats on.

Yer this is actually a pretty easy looking achievement with the extras

Yeah, so long as the suds multipliers are still in this game you only need to actually collect a bit more thann a ormal 230,000 studs. Considering how much this is worth that is surprisingly easy.

This achievement is super easy...i got 1,700,000,000,000 studs in lego starwars3
could get to 1 zillion but that would take grinding. 900,000,000 is so easy
aslong as there are multiplier exrtas

on the other hand the one with no studs in a level (thats crazy)well have to wait
and see

As said above - shouldn't be too hard to get with the extras. However it's a
blooming odd achievement!?!

Enter the passwords for the multiplier extras and you'll get the achievement in about 4 or 5 levels.

#7 You know how easy it is to commit suicide and keep losing studs over and over? Lol.

Comment #12 by FlexibleToad
Saturday, April 16, 2011 @ 04:20:32 PM

how can we ever get an amount of studs ending on an eight? isn't the smallest stud worth 10? or did they create a stud i don't know about?

ok guy way to point out me making no sense, must not have been thinking...

@11 yes thanks, wouldn't have thought of that, as easy as it is

@14 wow this was real dumb of me "1 quadrillion"

Does it have to be 888,888,888 exactly because it is 88G. If it was just get over that number then it would be to easy and only 8G. On indiana jones it maxed at 4billion so this achoevement is is really easy.

May I add a googol to the mix - 10 to the power of 100 or 1 followed by 100 zeros in layman's terms! That would take commitment - even with multipliers.

Most likely you won't have to get 888,888,888 exact
It's a LEGO game = easy achievements = they won't do anything like that

Awesome posts, guys. First, people complaining about the studs achievement when anyone who's every played a Lego game would know that there's a stud achievement in every game but every game also has cheats for you to earn that don't disable achievements to help you, and second, arguing that a zillion isn't a real number (which I didn't know before, thanks guys!).

@31 I know i'm late but whatever, I don't know if it was just me but when ever i
blew up a ship with multipliers on i would get like 250,000,000/ship

There is a spot where you can get an Infinite amount of studs. In Port Royal when you get to the beach, go to the far left to find a pile of blocks that build a sand castle. build it then destroy it then build it again and keep destroying it. the first two times you build it you get studs and each time you destroy it you get studs.

With all the multipliers on, I got over 888,888,888 studs in just level 1-3 without really trying.

@37 would you mind sharing the codes...

Comment #39 by colinp_uk
Monday, May 16, 2011 @ 05:18:35 AM


I just unlocked all the multipliers through normal game play - no codes used!

Comment #40 by Toams07
Saturday, May 21, 2011 @ 09:30:40 AM

There are no codes for the multipliers
You must buy all red hats that give you multiplier, and then you receive a huge load of studs
With every multiplier turned on, I got 650 million on the very first level

Comment #41 by LaserBehm
Monday, May 23, 2011 @ 12:10:38 PM

What are you guys complaining about? Once you buy all of the multipliers, you'll be getting 1 billion studs a level.

Comment #42 by xxx orange
Monday, May 23, 2011 @ 07:11:54 PM

i have noticed well i think it works like this that if you turn them on in a certian way you get higher muiltipliers i got i muiltiplier of around 7860 no cheats or anything

Comment #43 by jpanddanielle
Tuesday, May 24, 2011 @ 02:35:37 PM

Am I the only one who can't unlock the stupid x8 red hat? I SEE where the red arrow is pointing, and I am standing where the crate o bunnies used to be before i smashed it, and now there is nothing there but the red flashy arrow. I have reset, I just can't get this stupid multiplier!

#43, there ARE no codes to get the red hats, otherwise I would have just used the damn code!

You don't have to land on 888,888,888 exactly. You jst have to get up to that amount.

also, is this game worth it for Achievements?

Comment #50 by Melanopterus
Saturday, August 13, 2011 @ 04:42:29 PM

Hey jags they aren't bitching about how much they need to collect but that they felt the need to mess up the achievements by putting two in that don't end in 0 or 5...

Hence why all the comments were about odd achievement numbers learn to read it's an amazing skill. Anyone that plays lego games will know how to get it and how easy it is that's not the issue, the issue is it's bullshit that they took 2 points from this and tacked in on something else just to be "clever" or whatever

Comment #51 by KieronIsCool
Tuesday, August 16, 2011 @ 01:24:52 PM

If you have all of the stud multipliers on at once it's easy....took me less than 15minutes!

Comment #52 by BubbaDudebro
Friday, June 15, 2012 @ 09:41:38 AM

I really do not see what the problem is with getting this one. I always focus on buying the multipliers first before any of the other 'extras'. I had this achievement shortly after getting access to Blackbeard!!
