Using a third party program it is possible to reset your achievements as they are NOT stored server-side. Though extremely unlikely, it is possible to be banned for doing this. As of July 2015 I don't believe Steam is banning for using SAM. http://gib.me/sam/

I'd recommend having only 1 enemy and 2 allied bots; (bot_kick ) With this setup your allied bots will find and distract the enemy, possibly lowering his health, while you go in for the actual kill.

It depends heavily on the game. For instance, Invisible, Inc uses a system to detect modifications to the game code and will disable achievements. There are workarounds for bypassing the mod achievement disable, but it's not trivial to do. On the other hand, many games do not care if you use mods for achievements. Fallout: New Vegas is in this category. ...

I believe no. But I might be wrong because I don't have Fallout: New Vegas. The only mods I ever got into a Steam game were through the Steam Workshop, for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, and Steam didn't disable the achievements. In fact, for CS:GO there are dozens of achievement maps available that let you get the achievements for number of kills/games ...

I've written a script to solve this problem. It can be found on GitHub here. It tells you what games are below average, and which ones are the easiest to boost (strictly mathematically). Improvements and pull requests are welcome. I know very few people will want to download something for this, but it's the best I can do without having a server. Here's a ...

Checked my kill count on a weapon I don't use (M249) before I played competitive last night, I managed to get 3 kills with it in warm-up and my achievement count had increased by 3 after the match. So yes, kills in competitive warm-up do count towards your achievements.

this is kind of dependant on what the game does. some games have specific wallpapers for achievements while others use a simple image. The custom backgrounds was part of the November 2014 update which was around the same time Far Cry 4 launched, so it's understandable they did not have specific backgrounds. It's also a third party game, so I'm not sure that ...

You can view precise percentages for each achievement at the URL below. http://api.steampowered.com/ISteamUserStats/GetGlobalAchievementPercentagesForApp/v0002/?gameid=291650 Change the number at the end to the appid of the game. You can find that as the number in the URL of the store page for the game you're interested in. You can not view the number of ...

INTERIM ANSWER: I have been working on this problem since I started playing the game, and have come to an odd conclusion: "room types" might include having a full room (3 units) of each type. I have tracked my Vault's progress on this spreadsheet, and have clearly indicated: The 19 types of rooms, and their 3 subtypes e.g., the 3 levels for Diner are: ...

According to user Lorean at Steam Community: A quite late response, but I keep a spreadsheet to track my achievements and I just tested this. with some functions. Dividing completed achievements vs total achievements gives me 40%. Calculating the average of each individual game's achievement completion % gives a result of 52.11% which would match with my ...

No and you can't replay mission either, I made this mistake myself. You could maybe time yourself externally. I just did it as fast as I could and hoped for the best. Luckily that was good enough.
