Well here it is, CS:GO for the arcade. The achievements for this masterpiece of a game are pretty lengthy and some may prove to be a challenge, however nothing is impossible and these are not impossible however difficult. Most of the achievements are just for playing the game pretty much, with a few exceptions. All but one can be earned with Easy bots. Also, you must be on at least Easy to earn awards/achievements if playing with bots. Please refer to the bottom of the guide for useful links to other threads.

God of War70
Kill 10,000 Enemies (12) 

This will most likely be your second to last achievement that you obtain and the best way to get quick kills would be to play the Arms Race mode with Easy Bots. It would be best to go for this specifically once everything else is completed.

Earn 100 awards (1) 

Awards are a lot like achievements, except you don’t get Gamerscore for them. You can see your awards by selecting “MY ACCOMPLISHMENTS” in the Main Menu and then selecting “AWARDS.” Many of the awards are for doing simple tasks, so find the easiest 100 awards (like kills with x weapon or defuse/plant x bombs) and grind them out.

See the Awardist Guide for great guide on getting certain awards.

Points in Your Favor15
Inflict 2,500 total points of damage to enemies (1) 

This comes from all damage that you personally inflict to other players; gunshots, kills, knifing, explosions, etc. Just keep filling those enemies full of lead and this one will be yours in no time.

War Bonds20
Earn $50,000 total cash (2) 

Cash earned comes from a variety of actions. You can gain more cash by killing enemies, playing the objective, and assisting in the win/loss for the round. This one just requires you to play the game. This should come naturally and you should obtain it fairly quickly by playing either of the Classic modes.

Win an Arms Race match without dying (12) 

Arms Race is the gun game style mode which has been brought into CS:GO. This achievement requires you to win a match of it without dying. Which means that you ALONE must get all 27 kills without being killed yourself. There are teams, but if one of your teammates wins you won't get it even if you did not die the entire match. YOU must get the kills and win.

If you are attempting this solo against offline bots, this achievement can be a bit stressful because the bots can sometimes get good shots on you and demolish your health.

Luckily there is an EXTREMELY easy way to get this. Visit THIS THREAD for all the details.

A good way to do this legitimately, however, is to camp back on the upper platform at your spawn on the map 'Shoots' and take it easy and try to stay far away from enemies (excluding when you have the shotguns). Once you get your golden knife, try your best to flank then stab from behind. Playing as Terrorists seems to be easier as well (at least for me). 

This can also be boosted with a friend in a private game. Just find a place to meet and keep getting kills.

Battle Sight Zero30
Kill 250 enemies with headshots (3) 

This will probably come naturally on your way to 10,000 kills, but to speed it up, aim for the head! Most weapons are instant headshot weapons, such as any sniper rifle, the Desert Eagle, and some others. Accuracy is obviously a must in this case. Personally I find the AUG's and SG 553's scope function to be great for headshots.

Clean Sweep60
Kill the entire opposing team without any members of your team taking any damage (32) 

This achievement (if playing against bots) is part luck but mostly skill on your part.

The best way to do this is to begin a Classic Casual game on Dust II and be CT. Buy an AWP as soon as you can and immediately run to the double doors to the right and scope down this pathway. Sometimes the entire enemy bot team will run down this direction and you can easily snipe all five without getting hit. 

The problem is if one of your dumb bot teammates gets hit it will ruin it for you. As well as if you accidentally hit your teammate, the achievement is voided for the round. 

Alternative Method: "Also Clean Sweep is really easy on St. Marc demo too playing as the CT as soon as you reach the sniper the bots just ask to be spawn killed we got this during our first match. Just go the left of the truck as you leave spawn ADS at their corner and nail them all."

Lastly, here is a video of the achievement in action. It was extreme luck that his teammates weren't hit in the video, but it will still give you the general idea of how you would obtain this one with bots

Repeat Offender20
Dominate an enemy (3) 

Dominating an enemy requires you to kill them four times before they can kill you once.

This should come naturally when playing against bots in Arms Race and may even be your first achievement.

Expert Marksman25
Get a kill with every weapon (7) 

There are a lot of weapons in this game, ranging from pistols to sniper rifles. The best way to do this would be to use the list below and check each one off once a kill is scored with each.

Note that some weapons can only be bought on a certain team, which is designated by (T) and (CT). Grenades and such are not required and kills from ALL modes will count towards this. Lastly, to score a kill with the Zeus x27 you should be VERY close to your target. 

One good way to knock this out quick is to play an Arms Race game and then go mop up the guns you didn't use during the match. The guns not used in Arms Race are the SCAR-20, SSG 08, G3 SG1, and the Zeus x27. (thanks to Maka for the method and tigersrule for the guns needed after Arms Race). 

Here is the weapon list: 

  • Knife
  • P2000 (CT)
  • Glock-18
  • P250
  • Five-SeveN
  • Dual Berettas
  • Desert Eagle
  • Tec-9 (T)
  • Nova
  • XM1014
  • MAG-7 (CT)
  • M249
  • Negev
  • Sawed-Off (T)
  • MP9 (CT)
  • MP7
  • UMP-45
  • P90
  • PP-Bizon
  • MAC-10 (T)
  • FAMAS (CT)
  • M4A4 (CT)
  • SSG 08
  • AUG (CT)
  • AWP
  • SCAR-20 (CT)
  • Galil-AR (T)
  • AK-47 (T)
  • SG 553 (T)
  • G3SG1 (T)
  • Zeus x27
Magic Bullet10
Kill an enemy with the last bullet in your magazine (excluding sniper rifles and Zeus x27) (12) 

This achievement may be tricky for some, but there is a super easy way to accomplish it.

Begin a Classic Casual match on any map, and buy a Desert Eagle at the start of the round. Let the Terrorist team plant the bomb and then proceed to the bomb site. Usually bots will just crouch in corners, allowing you to net an easy headshot on them. Just make sure you have shot all but one bullet, then aim for the head and done! 

I ended up grabbing this by complete chance, so this is how it might work out for you as well. 

First Things First30
Personally kill the entire Terrorist team before the bomb is planted in Online Demolition Mode (76) 

This is the one achievement that absolutely must be done online, as well as the hardest one to obtain (difficulty wise). You can obtain this in a private game with friends but you cannot earn it in an offline game with bots.

To get this in the easiest way possible, start a game with one or more friends in a private game in Demolition (it HAS to be this exact mode) and try to vote/get the map 'Shorttrain.' The one getting the achievement needs to be CT and rush the hallway away from the trains. 

Eventually the entire Terrorist team will funnel down this hallway and you can kill your friend and the bots at the same time as your friend takes control of new bot positions to make it easier for you. Your friend may have to kill one or more of your teammates to stop them from killing your team so that you can get all the kills (thanks to Andreas_loel for reporting this much simpler method). 

If you die, I believe the achievement is voided if you take control of a bot even if you still kill all of the enemies yourself. 

Once again, YOU must kill all Terrorists on the Terrorist team as a CT before they can plant the bomb.

King of the Kill40
Play 5,000 matches of Arms Race or Demolition mode (31) 

This will most likely be your last achievement, simply because it's going take a very long time. Nothing really to say for this one except just keep playing those matches! If you can complete an Arms Race match quickly, then that mode would be best.

A better way to do this, at least currently unless patched, is to leave your Xbox running while you are idle and let the bots play in Arms Race on Expert. There is a glitch where if you are playing (or idling) offline with bots in Arms Race, one match will count as two. I would recommend idling this whenever you are not on your Xbox (while sleeping, eating, out somewhere, etc.), because this may end up becoming patched.

As far as the achievement itself goes without this glitch, I would suggest leaving idling the matches as sort of a last resort until everything else is done.
