The only way to activate achivements again is finishing that game session and start the game

How to enable the “Developer console”.

Half-Life 2 Console Commands - Cheats [2021] - How to enable the

Just check the “Enable Developer console” button and you have it.

Press the button: [ ~ ] and the console will come up (the game will be paused)

If you can’t open the console by pressing [ ~ ] change the key-binding, for the console, with the “keyboard options” in settings (bind a new key to open Developer Console).

Enable cheats

When you enabled and brought up the console enter:

Where the number “1” intends that cheats will be enabled.

to deactivate cheats just write a “0” instead of a “1”.

Be aware, not all of the commands mentioned in this guide require
you to enable cheats [sv_cheats 1], try without activating cheats at first.

The “Give” command

Just write “give” and enter the rest of the command.

For example:

give weapon_ar2

Trivia:
The flare ammo can’t be picked up, but the sniper ammo can. Does this mean it is possible to use the sniper as a weapon after all? The answer is no, however both the flaregun and the sniper has been weapons in the beta version of HL2. What a mystery! Why was these not removed? Only valve knows why.
