Can Steam Achievements in Team Fortress 2 be awarded if you are playing in Offline/Training mode, or is it just training?

(I am online, it's just that the Offline Practice is playing with Bots.)

  • In CS:Global Offensive you could,don't know if TF2 works the same. – Mentales Nov 30 '13 at 18:01

Besides the one training mode achievement, no, you can't.

Considering you are online, you could create an empty server for yourself and add some bots (tf_bot_add) to it (just make sure sv_cheats = 0). I've gotten a few achievements this way. Also, be sure that you're using a supported bot map, otherwise you'll need to use nav_generate.

Hope this helps.


As far as I know you can only gain achievements online. Plus must of the achievements require you to be online. Really. I have all the TF2 achievements, so I know.

    I'm not saying you're wrong, but just because you have all the TF2 achievements doesn't mean you did any of them offline. Perhaps you could supply a better proof for your answer? – Mufasa Nov 30 '13 at 20:19
  • @Mufasa I think you are right, but I just did the Second Degree Burn achievement properly, but I didn't get it in Offline Mode. It's probably only in online servers. – CPGamer Dec 1 '13 at 9:02
