How To Fix Done! Unlocking... Achievement Problems on Xbox One

By Rich Stone,
It's the Xbox gamer's worst nightmare — you do everything that you need to pop an achievement but you didn't get the "achievement unlocked" pop-up. When you check the progress on your console, it says it's "Done! Unlocking...".

The dreaded Done! Unlocking,.. achievementThe dreaded Done! Unlocking... achievement

We've heard stories of achievements in this state (or stuck at 100% completion) for up to six months before finally popping. This is an annoyance at best, but at worst it could cost you your place in a contest such as The Ultimate Head to Head Contest 2.

We have some good news for you — the Xbox support thread on this issue has been updated to read:

If you were connected to Xbox Live and you completed the full requirements for the achievement but the achievement seems ‘stuck’ at 100% complete or “Done! Unlocking…”, go to the achievement detail view on or on your Xbox One console to double-check whether it is still locked.
We also reached out to our contacts at Xbox and have confirmation that work has been done behind the scenes so that the stuck achievement should be forced through when you view it.

To make things easier for you, we've added a new panel to the Xbox One achievement pages:

This includes a link to the appropriate page on for that exact achievement. Simply log in to your Xbox account (if needed) and it should force the stuck achievement through the system.

Yo! Rich here - I was the one that created TrueAchievements back in 2008 as I felt the Xbox Gamerscore system could be improved. The site has evolved massively since then and it's now the biggest and best Xbox community on the planet! Racing games and open world shooters are my thing, but I'll give most genres a go. Except RPGs - those things are evil.
