With the not-so-surprising release of Counter-Strike 2 on 27 September 2023, CS:GO is no more, and its achievements are not available anymore either. Instead, there is just one hidden Steam achievement for CS2.
In this no-nonsense guide, we explain how Counter-Strike 2 players can unlock the "A New Beginning" Steam achievement with ease, so let's Smoke off Banana and Rush B!
CS2 Steam Achievement: How To Unlock
On Steam, with the release of CS2, you'll see one hidden achievement available. However, Valve does not tell you what to do to unlock it. Well, it is really simple. The new CS2 achievement is called "A New Beginning," and it has the tagline/description "This is Counter-Strike, too"
To unlock it, you will have to reportedly get a multikill (two or more kills) in a round, then complete the match of Counter-Strike 2. That's it! If you are struggling to get a multikill in CS2 but want to unlock this achievement right away, then you can click on Play, then "Practice," and then "Training Day," where you will easily get two kills in a round against the bots in this quick training mode.
Please note: Some players are reporting that to unlock the hidden Steam achievement for CS2, you simply need to play a match, with no multikill required, while others report a multikill is required. We tested and got a multikill during our first match, and the achievement popped up after the first round ended.
Are There Any Other CS2 Steam Achievements?
Apart from the A New Beginning achievement, there are currently no other Counter-Strike 2 achievements on Steam. This might change in the future if Valve decides to add some more achievements for their new tactical FPS title.
