Most of the hidden achievements in KoA seem to resolve themselves through normal game play (defeat this guy, complete on hard, etc) so I imagine the answer to this one is going to be along the same lines.

According to the lists of Steam, Xbox360 and PS3 achievements these 5 are specific to Steam.

  • Exterminator
  • Give Her a Hand
  • Keep on Rising
  • Manic Pixie Dream Elf
  • Message in a Bottle

What are the requirements of these 5 achievements? (I should note that Steam shows 0.1% of players have achieved them, so they are being awarded.)

@Ravendreamer The achievements might be different between the steam and Xbox360 versions, which is why I tagged this for steam. – Tharius Feb 8 '12 at 15:21
I just checked the achievements on, and I don't see this one listed, so definitely Steam specific. – Adeese Feb 8 '12 at 17:15
Does it not show up under the in-game achievement menu? (It may be listed as secret, but I doubt it simply doesn't exist) – Raven Dreamer Feb 8 '12 at 19:56
According to it does exist or did you mean that it most likely does exist on xbox360? @RavenDreamer – Tharius Feb 8 '12 at 19:57
@Raven Here's the list I was using (it includes Secret achievements):… – Adeese Feb 8 '12 at 23:08

The "general" requirements for these 5 achievements are (According to Giant Bomb's achievement list):

  • Message in a Bottle - Located all eight message bottles in Gallows End.
  • Keep on Rising - Gravehal Keep has been fully restored.
  • Give Her a Hand - Found Aubrey Gilcrest's severed hand.
  • Manic Pixie Dream Elf - Wooed Rast Brattigan.
  • Exterminator - Killed 50 Scavs.

I'm assuming these are related to specific quests in the game, but I haven't encountered these quests yet, so I don't have more detail than this.

To Woo Captain Brattigan just talk to her naked. I am still searching for the location of the Bottles and Severed hand.
