For gamers who like to unlock achievements in the games they play, running through a list of achievements beforehand can be extremely helpful as you’ll know what things you should keep an eye out for. In The Medium, there are several achievements that can be unlocked simply by playing through the game’s campaign.
However, there are other achievements that require specific parameters to be met, and it’s these that are the hardest to unlock. To help get a proper start, here’s a list of all the achievements you can unlock in The Medium!
The Medium | List of All Achievements
As previously mentioned, you can unlock a number of achievements in The Medium by playing through the game’s story. The more chapters you complete, the more achievements you’ll unlock.
You can also unlock some achievements naturally by doing things like inspecting items and discovering collectibles, like postcards from the groundskeeper. Others are kept hidden, and if you’re playing through the game without reviewing the achievements, you won’t know what some of these are unless you unlock them.
With this in mind, we do recommend looking over the list of achievements. However, if you want to avoid spoilers, we’ll section off each selection of achievements.
The first list of achievements will be free of spoilers. The second will contain potential spoilers for the game.

* = Secret Achievement
After looking over all of the achievements, you’ll see how it should be easy to earn most (if not all) of them during your first playthrough.
As long as you take your time and inspect items, reconstruct Memory Shards, uncover Echoes, and inspect and pick up items like notes and postcards, you should be able to unlock a hearty number of achievements.
Some of the more difficult ones include evading the creature without alerting it and inspecting 100 total items. In the event you miss some of these achievements, you can either load previous autosaves, or go back and start a brand new game in the event you ignored item collection the first time around.
We hope this helps, happy achievement hunting!
