You can't play on VAC-secured servers on the game that you get banned on.

ok now this is a very stupid question but does it work like copyright strikes where you have warnings or is it just instant vac ban?

If you cheat, you get VAC ban straight away - no strikes.

VAC it means if you cheating or hacking in protected server and players reported you, you shall get VAC ban (aka Valve Anti Cheat) Its perm ban, you cant join protected server but you can join server if is not protected so what? ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

so say a friend leaves cheat engine on by accident after playing a game that isnt vac related at all its only if he properly cheats in a vac game using cheat engine or does just leaving it on count?

If you cheat vac notices and bans your account in a random delay. For security reasons valve does not reveal the delay time. The best we can do is a guess. It can be about a few days to a month is my best guess.

but is vac striped to the point to where just leaving cheat engine on gets you a delayed ban or is it if you put on say no clip or fly what i mean by that is if you properly use it right and add a cheat in but just leaving it on isnt ban worthy?

Hard to understand what you are saying there. If you have cheat on your computer and use is on a VAC sercured server, you will get ban eventually.
So remember to remove or turn off the cheats

Being banned from games such as Team Fortress 2 for cheating with hacks such as ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ will cause you to get banned from ALL Source engine games like Half-Life 2 MultiPlayer mods, CounterStrike: Source and others as well. This is also extends to Chivalry: Medevil Warfare. You will NOT be banned from Portal 2 however, which is a relief. This won't ban you from GoldSource games, which are the older Valve games. Getting a VAC ban on there would ban you from the GoldSource, but not the recent Source engine.

If you leave a cheat engine on and you connect to a VAC protected server, you're pretty much begging for a ban.

Frankly, it's not worth the risk even having the thing installed on your computer. Get rid of the cheats before it happens. That's the only way to be safe.
