    Because it gives you cooties and nobody likes cooties, especially achievement cooties.

    Cooties really are bad. But it isn't proven to exist yet.

    Both are, there is nothing legitimate about TF2 achievement grinding via maps but there really is nothing you can do about it.

    They could make it so that you don't get kills on bots counted towards your achievements.

    But hey, what do I know.

    In my mind the difference is that the TF2 community had achievments to start with and they were a part of the game which was being broken.

    The CSS achievments have been bolted on and have caused multiple glitches (notably the end of round drop glitch, the FPS fall glitch, the ping strike glitch and the hl2.exe error glitch) and are not a part of gameplay that anyone in the community was really caring about too much.

    In TF2 the achievments are a part of the game but in CSS they're just an addon that the remaining communities don't really care about.

    Proof? Let's list off the main communities:

    - Competitive - Disable achievments so irrelevant
    - Deathrun - Use knife all the time so get those achievments easy. KDR achievments are irrelevant due to multiple deaths
    - Zombie Mod - Infinite ammo so get shot achievments easy. Never counted as dying so get life achievments easy
    - Jailbreak - CTs control dozens of Ts so get kill achievments easy. Ts die easy so KDR is irrelevant
    - Minigames - Map kills and no opportunity for shooting mostly so most achievments are irrelevant
    - Public - Most dabble in others of the above but those who do not will get the majority of achievments in normal gameplay so no need to grind.

    You see how it's different? The achievments do not match the game they simply slot on top and don't slot well to be honest.

    It's not cheating because it's not an integral part of the game, it's an addon that is quite irrelevant to the functionality of the game in any way. CSS isn't an RPG like TF2 and the achievments have no meaning.

    Can you imagine if they locked half the weapons from use and made you do achievements to get them back like TF2 so the achievements serve a purpose. God I can see the uproar about that being very very entertaining heh.

    The main problem is the only reason veterans like me and new players still play CS:S is due to the vibrant modification community. The core gameplay is simply insufficient to account for why CSS is still one of the most popular computer games ever.

    This update has slapped the customisation in the face and focussed on the core gameplay and also broken that.

    If all of this is cheating, go complain to valve. Achievements don't do much anyways and e-penis isn't really necessary to play CS:S or TF2.

    Or you could actually earn the achievements instead of cheating.

    WRONG SIR. The achievements in TF2 cause various weapons and items to appear more frequently and such. Whereas, in CSS, there's nothing to unlock.

    If Valve wanted achievements not to be cheated, they would have locked them to the default maps, instead of maps that are specifically created for grinding.

    There's no point in the CS:S achievements imo, except for bragging about them. The TF2 achievements are somewhat different though, as you actually earn in-game items from them. These should have been more protected from grinding maps.

    True, but why would it be cheating if it's for something that doesn't do anything?
