I still have some Steam achievments to collect and I just started playing XCOM Enemey Within with Long War beta 14 mod installed.

So can I still be able to get Steam achievments when I'm play XCOM Enemy Within with Long war mod installed?


Yes, at least with some achievements.

Modding XCOM doesn't disable achievements. I know this from personal experience- I got an achievement (jumping really high with the jumpylegs gene mod) while playing Long War.

However, even though the achievements aren't specifically disabled, some may still be broken or impossible due to the changes in Long War. Along with the extra difficulty of Long War and the extra time needed, you may be better off using the vanilla game to get your achievements.


I've got "Pain in the neck" after stunning an EXALT dude (never did it in vanilla) so the answer is yes.

  • EXALT are from the Enemy Within expansion pack, not a mod. The OP is considering the base game and the official expansions to be "vanilla", and unofficial mods to be "mods". Jan 24 '17 at 18:04
