 A pirate's life for me (15 points)
Test any custom character
 

You can get this as soon as you reach the hub. All you have to do is pick one of the already existing custom characters on the lower right corner of the characters select table (hold to bring it up).

NOTE: To reach the area where you can create and edit custom characters (not needed for the achievement) you first need 12 gold bricks to open the gate to the left part of the hub and then 24 to build the barrel rotating mechanism that brings up the bridge that leads to the hut on the other side. There you have to use another barrel to get inside. In there you just need to pull back the curtains to reveal the stairs leading to your goal. Pick any custom character and hit to play as them.

 
 The worst pirate I've ever seen (15 points)
Complete Port Royal in Story with zero studs
 

Despite the achievement description, you can do this in either story or freeplay. Just start up Port Royal and play through normally until you reach the ship at the end. (This is Film 1, Chapter 1).

Once you're there, the only means of losing the studs you've unavoidably collected is by letting the guards kill you (keep in mind that those don't respawn, you have to keep them alive) or by drowning yourself in the safe water near the beach over and over again. Getting eaten by the sharks isn't an option as that doesn't cost you any studs.

Alternatively it's possible to do it in co-op with a second controller. In that case it doesn't matter how many studs the second player collects, as long as you yourself have none at the end you'll get the achievement.

 
 The Brethren Court (25 points)
Unlock all the Pirate Lord characters (Single Player Only)
 

They're all unlocked after completing the third film story but after that they have to be bought while walking around the hub.

Characters required for this achievement:

  • Mistress Ching
  • Sri Sumbhajee Angria
  • Gentleman Jocard
  • Ammand the Corsair
  • Eduardo Villanueva
  • Capitaine Chevalle
 
 The best pirate I've ever seen (15 points)
Complete Port Royal in Story without dying
 

Despite the achievement description, you can do this in either story or freeplay. Also it can be done with extras enabled or without, but either way it's easily done. As long as you're careful, don't take any risks, do only what's absolutely necessary and you'll be fine.

It's also possible to do it in co-op with a second controller. In that case it doesn't matter how many times the second player dies, as long as you yourself don't die, you're going to get the achievement.

 
 On Stranger Tides (20 points)
Complete the Film 4 story
 

Story related and cannot be missed.

Awarded for completing all 5 chapters of the fourth film in Story Mode.

  • Filling the compass on a level.
  • 4 more bricks will be located on the piers of the dock area of the hub (all the way to the right), one for each film. They'll appear after you've collected all the minikits for the respective film.
  • After you've collected those 84 gold bricks you'll be able to build an object in the left part of the hub. Doing that will open up the golden gate near the pub. Inside is a bonus level that you have to complete for the final gold brick.

You can get this during the first level by swimming far away from the beach or right at the end of the level. To do it at the end, simply jump off the ship that you're supposed to use and you'll be eaten by the sharks lurking in the water. Note that a line of seaweed separates the safe water from the dangerous part of the water.

 
 Gents, take a walk (20 points)
Walk on the sea bed with all possible characters
 

This can be done wherever the water is deep enough but keep in mind that you have to do it in one go. After unlocking all the characters, you just have to switch through all of them by holding  and selecting the next one.

 I am a bad man (15 points)
Play a level with all Extras turned on (Single Player Only)
 

The extras are obtained by finding and buying all the red hats in the game (see "You may throw my hat"). You turn them on under the Extras section of the pause menu. You don't even have to play through an entire level, just have them all turned on at the same time for a second and it'll unlock.

 

 
 Sea turtles, mate (25 points)
Ride on all types of animal in the game
 

To ride the animals once you find them, just get close and press . The following animals are necessary:

  • Donkey (Port Royal, unmissable)
  • Horse (Tortuga, unmissable)
  • Pig (Tortuga)
  • Crab (Hub, Port Royal, Pelegosto)
  • Sea turtle (Smuggler's Den)
  • Snail (The Dutchman's Secret)
  • Goat (Davy Jones' Locker, unmissable)
  • Giant Crab (Isla Cruces) This one is not needed if you've already ridden any other type of crab.
  • Spider (Fountan of Youth)
 
 There's the Jack I know (25 points)
Get True Pirate in all levels (Single Player Only)
 

Achieving True Pirate means collecting a certain amount of studs in each of the levels. Like previous Lego games this is a breeze with extras turned on. Any of the treasure multipliers will speed up the process but even without them this shouldn't be a problem if you destroy everything. If you do not get it during Story Mode then you definitely will in Freeplay with the additional areas and studs.

The multipliers come from certain red hats and are bought with the studs you find while exploring the levels. See "You may throw my hat" for more information and a location guide.

 
 Aye-aye, captain! (15 points)
Play a level in co-op
 

This simply means offline co-op using a second controller, so just play through any level (except for the bonus level) that way. Keep in mind that you have to play the entire level from start to finish, you can't just let the second controller join at the end. To be safe, join at the hub and then start the level.

 
 You're off the edge of the map (15 points)
Highlight the secret 6th point on all 4 level select maps (Single Player Only)
 

If you take a closer look at the 4 level select maps you'll notice a skull and crossbones on each of them. Simply highlight them once with your cursor (no need to press any button) and the achievement will pop. They won't show up until you've completed a couple of levels on the respective map though.

 
 Hello, beastie (25 points)
Get eaten by the Kraken 10 times
 

During the battle with the Kraken simply let it suck you into its mouth 10 times to unlock this. Stand a short distance away and you'll get sucked in chewed up and spit out. This boss fight takes place on the Kraken level (Film 2, Chapter 5).

 
 Fire! (15 points)
Fire 100 cannonballs
 

This is cumulative and will come over time. To complete the game to 100% you'll have to fire way more than just 100 cannonballs so don't bother grinding for it.

 
 Fight to the bitter end! (20 points)
Defeat 100 enemies
 

This is cumulative and will come sooner than you think. If you fight everyone along the way, it will unlock near the end of the film 2 story.

 
 Five lashes be owed (15 points)
As Jimmy Legs, whip Will Turner 5 times
 

After unlocking these 2 characters (it should be after or even during film 2) simply get the two of them together anywhere (the hub is always the easiest) and whip Turner 5 times as Jimmy. Hold  to open the character select table and select both characters.

 
 Hoist the colours! (50 points)
Sail all the minikits in the hub
 

After collecting all minikits for a level you're able to free the ship from its bottle in the dock area of the hub (found by going all the way to the right) and hop on board to sail through the harbor. Do that with all of them to unlock this.

Although it is more time consuming, I suggest you don't free them all at once but just one at a time. Jump on it quickly and sail it a short distance and then jump off and move on to the next. There are 20 ships total.

If you need help finding any of the minikits there is a handy walkthrough that is sorted by chapter and can be found HERE. Just scroll down to the Freeplay section.

 
 Parley! (25 points)
Unlock all characters (Single Player Only)
 

Just as the description says play through the four films to unlock all the characters for purchase and then buy them while walking around the hub. Simply look around the hub and you'll eventually run into them all.

Note that here are several closed areas to the left and right that have to be opened first and there's a more or less hidden beach at the southern end of the central part of the hub (jump into the water and swim toward the screen).

 
 What do you want most? (25 points)
In any level use only the compass to find all it's secrets in one go, alone.
 

Although the achievement description says alone, this can be done in co-op, but it has to be you who find the secrets.

You can do it on any mission but it's easiest to do in Port Royal (Film 1, Chapter 1). To activate the compass you need to be controlling one of the versions of Jack Sparrow and then hold  to turn it on.

Start in the prison, looking for the item, on the 6 o'clock position. Then continue to the first beach to find the planks, a pole (build it to reach a very elusive minikit) and the conch. Then move on to the hidden area that opens up after destroying the silver barricade in the big square next to the docks and look for the sausage, the golden sword and the fish in this backyard. Lastly, head to the second beach and use the cursed version of Jack to find the small crab underwater. Ride it to count toward "Sea turtles, mate".

 
 You filthy, slimy, mangy cur! (15 points)
Complete all the Guard Dog levels
 

Story related cannot be missed.

The description is very confusing as there is no such thing as a separate guard dog level. What it basically means is to complete all the parts during the story that require using the dog. You'll reach that point shortly after unlocking "More what you'd call guidelines" near the end of "The Brethren Court (Film 3, Chapter 4).

 
 Try wearing a corset (15 points)
Do 5 lady backflips in a row
 

Each female character can backflip by simply jumping backward. Just get yourself enough room and start flipping. The long stretch along the level select maps in the hub is perfect for this.

 
 Pieces of Eight (88 points)
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.

 
 Did everybody see that? (20 points)
High dive into the Maelstrom
 

This can be done in either Story Mode or Freeplay and happens during the boss battle with Davy Jones at the end of Film 3, Chapter 5. Once Jones is down to his last heart, you can climb to the highest point of the ship and before finishing him off. Before doing that though, walk away from the screen (there's a purple stud there) and jump off into the maelstrom (the big whirlpool).

 
 Wind in your sails! (15 points)
Hit a flying parrot on Smuggler's Den
 

You can do this the first time you enter Smuggler's Den or you can come back for it later. There's a flying parrot near each entrance to the underground area, one near the start of the level and the other is on the second island to the right. You can hit it with any ranged weapon (Will's throwing axe, small/big guns) or just pick up a coconut and hurl it at the bird.

 
 And really bad eggs (25 points)
Play as all the Extra Toggle characters
 

Toggle Extras is one of the red hats/extras that you can turn on during fleeplay. It enables you to toggle through additional characters that can't be used anywhere else by using the and  buttons. Basically all you need to do is go to each level and keep hitting the shoulder buttons until you're back at the first character.

These are listed them all below because a lot of these characters can be found on several levels so you can skip some chapters entirely. You can switch through all of them while going for minikits and the compass secrets or you can just briefly fire each level up, toggle through the new characters and then save and exit and still get the achievement.
