Cheating Achievements in Source Engine



  • My brother found something funny and I was wondering if anyone knew about it. Normally, if you type in sv_cheats 1 to the console in HL2, Achievements will be disabled. But since you can type multiple commands at once, you can enter sv_cheats 1; noclip; sv_cheats 0 all at once and it won’t trigger the cheating detector, but you can still have the cheat enabled. Same goes for any command obviously.

  • Or you can just use SAM.



  • @JetBoom:

    can just use SAM



  • Question is: what is the point of SAM, or unlocking achievements via cheat codes?
    I only know two game that give in-game items for achievements: spacechem + tf2.



  • Legitimacy.

    If all you had were common achievements anybody would get, you’d look suspicious asking for a $1,000 item. But if your steam profile says you earned a few achievements which are either hard to get or under 2% ‘saturation’ in the achievements list, you look much more trustworthy setting the ‘rarest achievements’ on your profile.

    That is, until traders check your achievements and see that all 500+ achievements were gotten with SAM, making people doubt you were a legitimate person.

    It’s one of those dumb things people do for CS:GO/TF2 trading.



  • I think in retrospect that not many people really give a flying fuck that you had made every achievement in whatever game you spent your time on, strangely enough it’s too obvious using SAM if used properly.


  • Banned

    Literally deemed void due to steam levels



  • Haha, I didn’t realize SAM existed. And I don’t really care about achievements, I just thought it was funny that there was such an easy workaround to their anti cheat system.
