The Steam Achievements of New World’s reveal a great deal about player behavior in the new MMORPG. So just 8% of the players are at level 60, but is that really little, or is it a lot? We at Nintendosmash explain the situation.
What are Steam Achievements? If a game is on Steam, then in most cases it also has Achievements. These are often similar to those on consoles and give you success when you’ve achieved something specific.
New World has some of these achievements too, over 130 in fact. These reward you in MMORPGs for playing the game itself, for collecting certain items, or for reaching a certain level.
Thanks to the “Global Achievements” function of Steam, you can see for each of the Achievements how many% of the players have already completed this achievement. That in turn allows for some exciting keys to New World.
Can you come up with exact numbers? Unfortunately not. You can see as a percentage how many players have achieved an achievement and how many people are currently online. At the moment we cannot say how many players actually have the game.
Since Amazon has not yet published any sales figures, the exact number cannot be traced. Depending on where you look, New World has between 1.8 and 20 million players. It is very certain that there are at least 900,000 because that is how many players at the same time on the weekend of the release.
New World players are particularly committed
How do the numbers compare to other MMOs? About 8% of the “New World” players have reached the maximum level of 60. But how does that compare to similar games?
Compared to the survival MMO Fallout 76, the numbers are roughly the same. 8.3% of the fans have reached level 100 there. In percentage terms, that’s about the same number of users, but the number is much higher at New World because it has many more players.
The MMORPG SWTOR came to Steam last year, but only 2.3% of players managed to complete the last chapter of the story, which is significantly less than in New World.
Both games have been around longer than New World and have fewer players on Steam. Nevertheless, after one month, 8% of users have already reached level 60. That suggests that New World fans are particularly committed.
Why is that? Other Steam achievements confirm this theory. After all, 29.5% of the players have achieved the achievement of playing New World for 80 hours. 12.6% are already at 160 hours and 2.5% are even at 320 hours. In just a month.
0.1% of the players have even unlocked the achievement “I’ll sleep next week”, which can be obtained in the game for 720 hours. 0.1% may sound like little, but even if we assume the lowest number of players, namely 913,000, that’s almost 1,000 players.
That could be because New World had an enormous hype and many wanted to use the chance of a new, large MMORPG to be right at the front. The first players had reached level 60 after just three days.
The rest of the player base is also slowly catching up. The thirst for a new, big MMORPG was definitely there and New World was able to quench it for many. Many players also say that they know that New World is not optimal, but that there is nothing else that can currently be played.
So even though New World is currently losing players, which by the way is the most normal thing in the world, the game is far from dying, as many already prophesied in the comment columns. On the contrary, the game is in very good shape after a month.
5% of the people are traveling without a faction
Who needs parliamentary groups? A full 5% of the fans are in the game without a faction. You can choose a faction from level 10 and that is what 86.9% of all buyers have achieved.
Meanwhile, 35.2% of players have joined the Syndicate, making it the most successful faction when you look at it globally. After all, 30.9% joined the marauders and 15.8% opted for the alliance.
This means that a total of 86.9% of the users, 81.9% have chosen a parliamentary group. One reason for this could be the “Webermoor challenge” circulating on Reddit.
With this challenge, you travel to Webermoor immediately after the tutorial and never leave it. You level up to level 60 there and you are not allowed to accept any quests outside of Webermoor. That means you are not allowed to join any political group. How many people are currently trying to do this is unknown.
Which achievements are still exciting? It is also interesting to see which professions and life skills are well received by the fans of the game. Right at the front is the “Jägermeister” achievements that you get when you get track reading at level 200. A full 21.4% of the players have already achieved this.
The other end of the gathering skill is, unsurprisingly, fishing, which is very slow to rise. Only 0.2% of fans have level 200 fishing.
Life skills are even worse: armorers, jewelers, woodworking, and engineering have only 0% of players at level 200. We cannot say exactly at which value Steam rounds down to 0, but there are very few players.
When it comes to weapons, the hatchet seems to be the most popular, as 4.9% of players have already brought the weapon to a maximum level of 20. Closely followed by the battle-ax with 4.7% and the life stick with 3.6%.
The iconic musket seems to be the least popular, because only 0.5% of players have leveled it at level 20, and the bow doesn’t look much better either. It is second from the bottom with 1.4%.
Overwatch 2: Kiriko All Abilities
Overwatch 2 has been launched with new content for players that also includes new characters. There are 3 new characters in Overwatch 2 and one of them is a supporting character named Kiriko. Kiriko is a supporting hero that is necessary for the competitive composition in Overwatch. Kiriko has a unique playstyle that will let players play her as a healer, aggressive, or even DPS hero.
In this guide, we’ll be telling you all the abilities of Kiriko in Overwatch 2.
Kiriko is a supporting hero in overwatch 2 but with the abilities set that she has she can be played as an aggressive or DPS hero. Mostly her abilities support allies to heal or make them invulnerable for a short period of time but she can also climb walls and directly teleport to the allies to help them. Other than healing, she also shoots a projectile that deals increased critical damage. Players would be able to play her in different playstyles and support their team in a unique way.
Kiriko has the following abilities:

Overwatch 2: How to Do Super Jump with Mercy Hero
Overwatch has various heroes with different types of heroes and one of the top-notch support heroes is Mercy. Mercy is a powerful healer with a versatile moveset that allows her to provide healing from her unique resurrection ability. One particular trick that players had done with Mercy is Super Jump which allows players to jump over the tall structures on the map.
In this guide, we’ll tell you how you can do Super Jump in Overwatch 2 with Mercy.
Doing a Super Jump with Mercy
Players have been spamming Super Jump with Mercy in Overwatch 1 and over the years, the developers have tweaked the super jump technique so the players cannot spam this movement technique in the matches. But it is still very good and in Overwatch 2, you can actually do the Super Jump with Mercy the same way you did in Overwatch. There were some rumors that developers have completely fixed this and players would not be able to do it but it still works in overwatch 2 but not as good as it was in overwatch.
To do the super jump, it is important for you to be near one of your allies. Once you are near your ally, you need to point your crosshair to the ally and use the Guardian Angel ability. This will pull you close to an ally and you need to point in the direction and then let go of the Guardian Angel’s ability to jump in the direction you are pointing. In overwatch 1, it was easy to do the super jump because you didn’t have to point in the direction, you just take off high up in the air but in overwatch 2, you’ll have to specifically flick in the direction after using the Guardian Angel ability.
The Super Jump in overwatch 2 will take some practice to master and you can also jump backward by flicking your mouse down. It will bounce you up in the backward direction but you’ll not get that high in the air, if you have a good movement then you’ll be able to dodge enemies or flank them easily while doing the Super Jump.
Overwatch 2: Sojourn All Abilities
Overwatch 2 is live now and there is a lot of new content in the game for players to enjoy. One of the new contents includes new heroes that are been added in overwatch 2. The new characters are of different roles and one of the characters is a DPS character named Sojourn. She is a high mobility damage dealer and players will be able to deal a ton of damage to the enemies.
In this guide, we’ll be telling you all the abilities of Sojourn in Overwatch 2.
Sojourn is a DPS (Damage-per-second) hero who mainly focuses on dealing maximum damage to the enemies. Her main choice of weapon and her abilities focus on dealing high damage. If a player has a crispy aim then he’d/she’d be able to single-shot the enemies with a headshot. Her abilities allow her weapon to charge up when you deal damage to an enemy and you’d be able to deal higher damage to the next enemy when your weapon is charged.
Sojourn’s abilities are listed down below:
- Railgun: Railgun is her Primary Weapon that shoots rapid-firing projectiles and upon hitting the enemies the projectiles will charge the rifle. After her weapon is charged, right-clicking will shoot the charged projectiles which will do more damage than the primary shots.
- Power Slide: Power Slide is an ability that will let her slide in a direction that will give her a movement boost and performing the jump action while sliding will result in a high jump.
- Disruptor Shot: The Disruptor Shot is an energy field that can be shot at enemies and the enemies that are inside the energy field will get slowed down and take damage from it.
- Overclock: Overclock is the Ultimate of Sojourn that allows her Railgun to auto charge energy for a short duration and shooting the enemies with charged shots in the ultimate will pierce them.
