In Steam achievements it always gives:

% of all players

Is there anyway to know total number of players though?

  • Are you interested in the total number of downloads? If so, this answer might answer your question. – user149305 Feb 14 '18 at 23:24
  • Well I guess my question also entails: what are they basing the % off? – user3306356 Feb 14 '18 at 23:24
  • That's an interesting but separate question. My hunch is that it's based off of downloads, since games that give you achievements for opening the game still have less than 100% completion. Open a new question and I'll see what I can do. – user149305 Feb 14 '18 at 23:26

There's no native way to do it*, but you can do certain math calculations with the information shown on SteamDB.

With Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and Shot With Their Pants Down as our example, we follow this steps:

Search the game on SteamDB

Search bar on SteamDB Counter-Strike: Global Offensive on the list

Select "Graphs & Spy" on the left side

Select the menu

We grab the number of owners (in this case, 39.980.725)

SteamSpy to the rescue

A calculation is done with the achievement percentage

Percentage that completed "Shot With Their Pants Down"

0.786 * 39980725 = 31424849.85

An approximated of 31.424.850 players got the achievement.

Asterisk Note*: You can find extensions and user scripts for Firefox and Chrome, but that will require work setting everything up.


If you install the Enhanced Steam addon for Chrome/Firefox, it will show you player-statistics from steamspy.com on the game's Steam Store page
