Achievements are very similar to Badges, they are badges which can be worn around the hotel in order to show off various tasks a player has completed. The Achievements system was introduced in September 2008 and was brought in as a scheme to allow more Habbos access to badges. Originally, badges would only be awarded during competitions of campaigns to a select few users, whilst the introduction achievements opened badges up to the whole community. Achievements also have multiple levels, allowing users to slowly build up to the top level.
Achievements now cover many different areas of the hotel with a total of 9 different categories, containing achievements ranging from respecting Habbos, receiving scratches for your pet and even send presents to friends. There are some achievements which will requires users to spend credits in order to achieve higher levels although the vast majority do not require credits and only time put into the achievement. Future updates introduced Achievement Scores to the hotel which saw points added for each achievement earned which encouraged many users to put more effort into earning achievements in order to have a high score to show off. In Habbo's past it was possible to link your account to a Facebook profile and users were able to share achievements to Facebook. Friends of the user were then able to earn both themselves and the original user more points by clicking the link shared.
In the past there has been much discussion over the achievement score and whether it is a good or bad idea. The causes for this is the fact that users with a low score are more likely to be singled out by users who have a higher score, often referring to them as 'noobs'. Another downfall to the system is users creating rooms to boost achievement scores, allowing for an unfair disadvantage to some users.
The Games section of Achievements is the largest collection on the hotel with a whopping 445 to earn. Until late 2012, there were only 4 different achievements to be earned. This is due to the introduction of the Habbo Games Hub which has brought many new games to the hotel with most having 3 or 4 achievements. The achievements in this category range from tagging other players on a Skating Rink, completing jumps on a Skateboard and successfully landing items of food in Fast Food. There are only a few achievements which players can boost as most require users to reach certain points in official games.
