Counter Strike Source Achievement Guide


The CS:S Achievement List

All 145 achievements are pretty self-explanatory. If you need help with a specific achievement give us a shout in the forums and we’ll investigate – or if any of the NLG team finds any tricks to help you along, we will update this page as necessary. Happy hunting folks!

*As of the current version (July ’10) almost all achievements can be obtained in privately created servers and against bots. While it’s tedious and somewhat llama to just go bot happy and farm out all your achievements, we still do recommend practicing against bots [See: Practice Against Bots] if you want to work on your headshot aim before facing a real foe, which is rather handy for people that stick to their favorites and never practice the other guns. Plus it’ll give you a little bump in your kill-counter before you go pubbing to grind out the rest of it. If you’re just not dedicated enough to get the skill to earn said grinding achievements, you can always llama it up [See: Easy CSS Achievements].
