A video gamer who plays games to unlock achievements on a gaming service, such as Microsoft Studios' Xbox Live, Sony Computer Entertainment's PlayStation Network (trophies), and Valve Software's Steam. Achievement hunters often have a tendency to be completionists.

The term is named after the popular Rooster Teeth Productions division called Achievement Hunter, which started out as website for achievement guides before becoming a well-known Let's Play group.

The second greatest product of alcoholism after the American Civil War and proof you can earn money playing video games. A division of Rooster Teeth, the Red vs Blue guys.
I walked past the Achievement Hunter office earlier and all I could hear is cursing broken up by a British girl squealing.
