Most of the time, yes. Providing you have launched the game at least once (so the Steam Client has the achievement schema on your machine) you SHOULD be able to earn Steam Achievements while in offline mode. I say "SHOULD", because there are bound to be cases where it doesn't quite work.

That said, I'll just use that a couple of months ago I played Bejeweled 3 while running in offline mode and unlocked a couple of achievements. Once you go back online on Steam, it'll publish those unlocks to your community profile for the date/time of when you logged in.

As long as you play online once it syncs the achivement database locally. Then if you go offline it will trigger the achivements.

I buy Poker Night 2, then play it online many times, right?? Once I go offline, I decide that I'll play some more and end up winning a bounty item (something you can only do once), meaning that when I get the achievement, the Dapper Disguise would appear in my TF2 inventory. The achievement never shows up in the list of available achievements and I never receive the item, once I go online and even play the game online. What can I do????

I'm in the exact position as you!! I finally got glaDOS' bounty item during offline mode (without prior knowledge of the problems with achievements in offline mode) and now I'm not getting my portal zero skin in borderlands 2 or the steam achievement ingame! :((( Would really appreciate any help from fellow players. Thanks.

I recently completed witcher 2 during which I had many an all nighter which I got very embarresed about so I turned on offline mode so my friends couldnt tell how obsessed I am with that game XD. During which I did all of chapter 2 after turning of the game steam told me I got some chievs for example "friend of trolls" and "ale lacta lest". When I opened the game up after wards it infomed me that the game would be using my cloud saves from my offline mode which I was glad of but upon finishing the game and checking the chievs I had achieved all the ones from chapter 2 were missing and I don't know if there is a way to recover them. :/
