Many factions have various requirements for players before they’ll let you join them, a lot of them require back doors to be installed.

If you want those unique factions you must understand how to install a backdoor.

How to Install Backdoor in BitBurner

This can be done by connecting to a server and initiating the command backdoor. To connect to a server simply type the command scan, followed by the command scan-analyze. From here you can choose which server you’d like to connect to.

 If you ever feel confused about how many or what commands you have simply type the help command into the terminal. If your terminal is too cluttered to see what’s going on then type the clear command into the terminal. To exit from the server you’ve connected to type the home command into the terminal.

To actually connect type the connect command into the terminal, from here you can choose from a variety of actions relating to the server you find yourself in. One of which is the backdoor command along with the hack, weak, grow, etc. commands.

With a few upgrades you can turn this command into a script, Backdoor(), the automation of which is greatly appreciated most of the time.

Does the Bitburner Require Coding Skills?

Make no mistake however playing/starting might be easy, but the skill ceiling is quite high. So you’ll still feel like you have a lot of room to grow many hours into the game. You can also kindle a unique love for coding through this game. Not that it’s entirely code accurate per say (it models java script pretty well sometimes though) it’s more that the game can help you get a feel of how you could make coding fun.

We won’t all be hacking and stealing from servers in real life, we’ll probably struggle to even form websites at first. But like the game itself life has a very high skill ceiling, almost infinite really. You can use the game to help introduce yourself to the field (or just enjoy a cool game.)

Those factions I mentioned come in many different forms and names, but they offer various incentives. Those being augmentations and resources. So back doors lead directly to powerful upgrades and resources, like opening a door to a treasury.

What Does a Backdoor Do?

I also find it quite funny people doubt the usefulness of the backdoor function, considering that many even doubt video games themselves…

Just like back doors games can be called pointless, because they by themselves aren’t rewarding. But just like we discussed games can be used to improve your life.

BitBurner for instance can inspire a love for coding or at least an interest in it. This is even more powerful than being handed a million dollars. After all “teach a man to fish he eats for life, but give a man a fish and he eats for a day.”

Maybe we could even expand that into something more vague. Scripting is all about automation, but to make scripts you have to invest a lot of time and research. That’s a powerful concept for life in general, it could lead to things like passive income (aka stocks and crypto) or simply inspire you to make life easier for yourself.

That’s what a backdoor can do, it can make life easier and it can fulfill your bank account. In game and out of it.

The latest update brings tons of things into the game and with it, a number of achievements to complete.

One of the content is called “A Rare Realm” achievement where you will have to create one of three known world seeds released in the latest update.

Unlike some of the achievements where you will have to walk a certain number of steps, dig a specific number of blocks, and the like, the achievement we will be tackling today can be obtained fairly early into your game.

In this guide, we will show you how to create one of the latest World seeds in Terraria 1.4.4 and nab the “A Rare Realm” achievement at the same time in Terraria 1.4.4.

Guide on How to Get A Rare Realm Achievement in Terraria

The achievement unlocks if you create a world that is unique in Terraria. These realms can be created after you select your character and create a specific realm with unique effects.

Some examples of these are the no traps seed, zenith seed, remix seed and so much more.

Start the game and select your character

To begin, launch your game from your desktop. This achievement can also be unlocked on the mobile version of Terraria on IOS and Android. Next, select your character and click play.

Create a New World

You will have to create a new world from scratch on the option of which world to play on. Select create a new world and fill out the world details.

Be mindful of the difficulty level of your character when creating a new world otherwise, you won’t be able to play in the world you have created.

In our case, our character difficulty is set to classic so we will be creating a world on the classic difficulty settings.

You can freely select the world size and the evil alignment. This won’t affect you getting the achievement in the end.

Next, select a world name and on the seed tab, type in “no traps”. With everything set, click the create button.

Wait for your world to be created

Depending on the world’s size, you will have to wait for the world to finish generating. A small world will take you about a minute or so whereas the larger worlds could take around 3 to 4 minutes.

The No Traps seed will let you generate a world with no traps in it so you can explore the world with no fear of booby traps in the areas.

Select and Play in Your Newly Created World

When the realm is fully generated select it from the list of worlds that you have created. Entering the world for the first time will grant you the “A Rare Realm” achievement. Now go explore your new “Trap Free” world with leisure.
