The video game industry has recently picked up on the idea of using Augmented Reality to provide an immersive gaming experience.

But Niantic has worked on AR for years now, with titles such as Pokemon Go, Ingress and Harry Potter: Wizards Unite.

If you’re a fan of the Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts series, you will surely enjoy everything Harry Potter: Wizards Unite has to offer.

Niantic makes sure players always have something to look forward to and regularly updates the game with new content.

Having said that, the last few updates were quite buggy and have caused a number of issues, upsetting a significant portion of their player base.

The latest issue Harry Potter: Wizards Unite players are complaining about is the missing Brilliant achievement badge.


@NianticHelp @HPWizardsUnite Excuse me, please. Hello? How much longer do I need to wait to get the #BrilliantEvent #WizardsUnite Achievement Award Badge from the event? I finished it last week. It’s taking too long. Please #HELP? Is there a help thread???? Thinking face

Same here , badge didn’t appear. But seem to have a duplicate of unforgivable truth brilliant achievement badge. Android 11 Version 2.18.1

According to user reports, they are not getting the Brilliant achievement badge even after completing the tasks in Secrets Revealed Part 2.

Instead, some users are getting the Unforgivable Truth badge that was awarded in the last event.

Since then, Niantic has acknowledged the issue and said it is under investigation.


In the last few weeks, we have covered a couple of Harry Potter: Wizards Unite issues such as adventure sync not working and the Adversary Battle bug.

We hope the developers at Niantic resolve the Harry Potter: Wizards Unite missing Brilliant achievement Badge issue alongside the other bugs at the earliest.
