    Please note:
    Riptide does not appear as an enchantment at lower levels.
    - Thanks P00R GRENDEL for mentioning this.

    From some quick research here:

    Looks like with 15 bookshelves around the enchantment table. There is a chance you can get riptide 1 with the middle (spend 2 exp levels) but you're greatest chance is of course spending the 3 exp levels. Of course, save before doing the enchantments in case you run out of levels.


    Okay so the other solutions posted here were 100% correct but it was taking me way too long to create the enchantment table, get the trident, level up, etc. Then I stumbled upon this solution and it took me about an hour total to get this achievement. I recorded it and made a video :)

    Basically load up a tutorial in minecraft xbox one edition, get lots of XP potions, and then flood the zombie spawner (make sure to leave an air pocket for them to spawn).

    Then switch to the Minecraft better together version, import the world and let the flooded zombies turn into the aquatic water zombies that have a chance to drop the trident.

    Grind it a bit, it shouldn't take too long and then go to the enchanting table. If riptide is not an option, enchant something else for 1 xp bar and retry.

    To use the trident with riptide just hold LT while you're in the water.

    Hope this helps :) Let me know if there is any changes I can add.

    Level 75 NoobNot sure if this is guaranteed, but it was a problem for me. The Riptide and Channeling enchantments are mutually exclusive. So if you already have a trident with Channeling on it, Riptide won't ever appear on the enchanting table for another. It needs to be removed from the original weapon first.

    Quick and easy method using new Minecraft Xbox 360 version Aquatic tutorial and Xbox one version of the game.

    1st-- Load up Minecraft on Xbox 360 and start the new tutorial world and save it. Go back to the main menu and upload it to the xbox one by pressing the Y button when you are on the save you need (feel free to rename it to "Trident" or "Aquatic tutorial" just because it is easier to find later.

    2nd-- Load up Xbox one version of Minecraft (not better together version) and download the Xbox 360 save you uploaded. I believe you press Y again for this. If you try and play it, it will say its not supported due to the Xbox one version not being updated with the aquatic update. That is ok.

    3rd-- Load up Xbox one BETTER TOGETHER version, and click "sync old saves" and if it doesn't pop up immediately, wait awhile, it took a little bit for it to finally show up, but it will. Now load up that save. *I checked after downloading the save, and it wouldn't show up for hours, I checked the next day and it finally showed up, so be patient.

    Finale-- When in the new tutorial, go straight until you reach a huge open area with a bunch of water down below. Look right and you will see a giant trident. That is where you need to go. Once you get there, look in the chest for XP potions, Riptide book, and tridents. Now just use the anvil (costing only 6 xp to make) and boom, there is your riptide trident. Now hop in the little pool of water and hold LT and let go and the achievement will pop. DONE.

    You can also get most of the aquatic update achievements in this world too, especially the making a conduit achievement as there is one in the chest down below on the platform surrounded by water. Hope this helped!

    In order to unlock this cheevo, you will need a enchanting table and a decent amount of exp, Lapis-Lazuli, a Grindstone and kill The Drowned Zombies.

    To craft a enchanting table, you will need:
    - 4 Obsidian
    - 2 Diamonds
    - 1 Book

    Now that you will have an enchanting table, go to oceans/lakes and kill the drowned zombies until they drop a Trident.

    To enchant something in the Enchanting Table, you will need to find Lapis-Lazuli. Lapis-Lazuli ores are found while mining, commonly found at Y 13-16. (But is found at Y 30 and below.) then melt them in a furnace.

    Now insert the Trident and Lapis-Lazuli on the enchanting table. The table will give you 3 sets of enchantments. If you don't see Riptide, keep enchanting 1 exp enchantments until it appears. You will need to grind for exp if you run out of exp. So kill monsters and melt ores.

    To remove the 1exp enchantments from a Trident, you can use a Grindstone.
    To craft a Grindstone, you will need:
    - 2 sticks
    - 1 stone slab
    - 2 types of any planks.

    Once you are with a Riptide enchanted trident, go on water and press/hold cn_LT. After a few seconds the acheivement should pop up.

    TL;DR: Get a Trident from the drowned, get an enchanting table and Lapis Lazuli, enchant 1 exp enchantments until you see Riptide, go on water and press/hold LT.
