Achievement Hunter is an American video gaming division of Rooster Teeth Productions. Founded by Geoff Ramsey and Jack Pattillo on July 6, 2008, the website is based on the achievement mechanic found in seventh and eighth generation video game consoles. Since its founding, Achievement Hunter has grown to become a core component of Rooster Teeth, hosting a wide variety of videos related to video games. Achievement Hunter videos are hosted by six main members: Geoff Ramsey, Jack Pattillo, Gavin Free, Michael Jones, Ryan Haywood, Jeremy Dooley. While most videos feature these six'core' members of Achievement Hunter, other staff make regular appearances. Achievement Hunter has a large presence on YouTube – where it runs the Achievement Hunter and LetsPlay channels – garnering more than 5.5 million subscribers and 3.1 billion video views. In 2008, Geoff Ramsey's interest in gaming achievements resulted in the realization that no community-based website related to achievements existed. Since Ramsey and Burnie Burns Rooster Teeth CEO, were both "huge achievement fans" and dueling each other to get the most achievements in their spare time, Ramsey had an idea to begin developing a website where gamers and fans could look up information on how to get specific achievements.
Ramsey approached Burns about creating a website based on achievements. Ramsey elaborated, saying he had grown tired of making Red vs. Blue and enjoyed working on this creative outlet in his spare time. Alongside employee Jack Pattillo, Ramsey released achievement guides and Easter egg videos receiving assistance from select volunteers from the Rooster Teeth community. David Dreger assisted in the founding of the site. In 2011, Achievement Hunter hired Ryan Haywood as an manager. Four new shows were introduced to Achievement Hunter in 2011. One of them, Rage Quit, led to the official hiring of Michael Jones as a full-time staff member in August 2011. In December 2011, Achievement Hunter began creating Let's Play videos; the success of the videos resulted in a weekly sub-series in 2012, in which the main hosts play Minecraft. Weekly Let's Play videos focusing on Grand Theft Auto games are released. Achievement Hunter hired Gavin Free in 2012. In March 2012, Achievement Hunter debuted Game Night, in which Ramsey and Caleb Denecour play games with community members.
Community member Ray Narvaez, Jr. was hired in April 2012, having worked as a contract host for multiple years. In September 2012, contract editor Franco Scarcello created Five Facts, hosted by Pattillo and Ramsey and focused on little-known facts about various video games. In early 2013, Achievement Hunter introduced a competition series titled VS, in which the employees challenge each other to compete in games. In April 2013, Achievement Hunter launched their own channel on YouTube, which hosts a variety of their videos. In 2013, the company retired Achievement HORSE, replacing it with Achievement HUNT, in which a variety of employees challenge each other until the word "HUNT" has been spelled. In October 2013, Pattillo hosted a 24-hour live stream benefiting Extra Life, a charity benefiting hospitalized children. With appearances from other Achievement Hunter members and various Rooster Teeth employees, the live stream managed to raise $340,000; this charity live stream has become an annual event, with 2014's Extra Life live stream raising over $442,000 for Children's Miracle Network.
At RTX in July 2014, community members Matt Bragg and Jeremy Dooley were hired as editors and secondary hosts at Achievement Hunter respectively. On February 5, 2015, Achievement Hunter founded the Let's Play Network YouTube channel; the channel acted as a platform for multiple RoosterTeeth owned and affiliated groups and divisions to upload gameplays. Some of these groups included the likes of Funhaus, ScrewAttack, Cow Chop, Kinda Funny, Sugar Pine 7. Although, a majority of the channel's videos still consisted of Achievement Hunter's content. In early 2015, Achievement Hunter hosted the first Let's Play Live at the Moody Theater in Austin, Texas. In April 2015, Narvaez departed from the company as a full-time employee to focus on Twitch live-streaming, although he continued to voice his character for the company's X-Ray and Vav animated series until its eventual cancellation. In mid-2015, Achievement Hunter launched a new YouTube channel, named after themselves, thereon they upload series of videos that were uploaded to the Rooster Teeth channel.
Additionally, they moved out of Rooster Teeth's Stage 5, Austin Studios office into their own office nearby. Dooley was promoted during an episode of Let's Play Minecraft. A weekly podcast titled Off Topic was announced in early October, hosted by Michael Jones. Four test episodes were only available to "First Members" on their website; the first official episode aired to the public after the initial tests. Jones serves as the main host of the show and makes the most frequent appearances alongside other Achievement Hunter employees and special guests, including Patricia Sommerset, Arin Hanson, Samm Levine, he hosts the after show Last Call available for First Members only. From 2015, Achievement Hunter would feature celebrities as guest collaborators in some of their Let's Play videos such as Watsky, iZombie's Rahul Kohli, Dan Campbell from The Wonder Years, Laura
