Can you get banned for Steam achievement hacking?
So I noticed that one of my friends has unlocked literally HUNDREDS of achievements at exactly the same date and time. He also unlocked achievements which require having 24+ hours on record in Garry's Mod yet he only has 11.7 hours currently.

I private messaged him and said "nice acheivement hax bro" he didn't respond and removed me from his friends list. LMAO.

Well then we both broke the rules, didn't we?

Plus, as far as I know achievement 'hacking' can't get you banned unless you do it in VAC secured server.

Hacked achievements will still affect the "global achievements stats" though...

Granted, it would be harder to validate whether someone is legitimatly earning the achievements since they can be awarded on non-VAC servers but you'd think that there would be some form of basic monitoring...

I mean, how is it that 363 Team Fortress 2 achievements can get unlocked at exactly the same date and time without raising any red flags???? Seriously...

If you cheat you may be banned

The only way to guarantee not to be banned, is not to cheat, ever

Oh I see. Fair enough. I thought they were referring to VAC.

The truth is that no one is entirely sure whether using achievement hacks causes a VAC ban or under what circumstances, as there is no official word from Valve on this and is not likely to be any. It's generally assumed that if it's left on while connecting to a VAC protected server that a ban can occur but it's just an educated guess at this point.
