Steam Achievement Manager 5.1

tf2_pyro.jpgThis is simply the best app for unlocking achievements in TF2, DoD:Source and others. The recent steam update broke the API that 2.1 used, the current version is 5.1. This app can allow you to unlock the Heavy’s weapons, Natasha, the Sandwich (Sandvich) and KGB (Killing Gloves of Boxing), or any of the Pyro or Medic’s weapons (Backburner, Flare Gun, Kritzkreig, Blutslauger, etc) along with future releases for the scout, sniper spy unlockables, etc. The best thing is that by unlocking only the milestones for each class, you can have all the new weapons, while still unlocking the other achievements normally.

  1. Install Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 if you do not already have it installed.
  2. Download Steam Achievement Manager.
  3. Extract it to a directory that is convenient to you, but not your Steam directory. It’s a ZIP file, if you don’t know how to extract a ZIP file then you probably shouldn’t be trying to use this tool.
  4. Run Steam if it is not already running.
  5. Exit any active VAC protected games if any are running. While this tool does not directly interact with any game itself, it is better safe than sorry.
  6. Run Steam Achievement Manager and do whatever you want in it.


FAQ: Valve bannination for using this?

Exceedingly doubtful. The folks at Valve are at least prehiperially aware that this exists. It’s a don’t ask, don’t tell situation, and by using the unlocker you aren’t affecting other’s gameplay. Although with the Pyro nerf, the backburner isn’t worth it in most cases, nor are the other unlockable weapons.

  4. Will says:

    I am able to unlock all the acheivments but not use the scout unlockables. I can select them in my weapon loadout but they do not show on respawn. Help me?

  5. Will says:

    It appears to only work on some servers. Any idea why?

  6. admin says:

    Try restarting steam and/or TF2. Should sort everything out. If it’s not working on some servers it’s likely those servers don’t have the scout update patch loaded yet.

  12. admin says:

    You can’t “hack” someone else’s achievements. Your friend is lying to you. Yes, you can reset your stats.

  13. Jim says:
