If you recently played CSGO and received an alert saying that ‘VAC was unable to verify your game session,’ this is your one-stop guide to fix it.

Many will see the word VAC and assume they were banned, but we can ensure that this is just a bug and you weren’t put on VACation. This glitch usually gets patched after completing our method number one, but in some rare circumstances, you will need to try our secondary method.

Method 1: Verifying Game Files

  • Find Counter-Strike: Global Offensive in your Steam Library
  • Right-click the game and open Properties
Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Game Properties
  • Open Local Files
  • Click Verify Integrity of Game Files
Verify Integrity of Game Files

After the process is finished, you will need to restart your computer.

The issue should be fixed once your computer boots up, and CS:GO should be playable once again. However, as stated earlier, in some rare circumstances, the problem may still be present after trying Method 1, so you’ll have to try Method 2 if you are unlucky.

Method 2: Reinstalling CSGO

Reinstalling CSGO will erase all your in-game settings, so we recommend taking a screenshot of your settings before using this method. This method always fixes the issue but generally takes longer to complete depending on your internet.

  • Find Counter-Strike: Global Offensive in your Steam Library
  • Right-click the game and hover over Manage
  • Click Uninstall
Uninstalling Counter-Strike Global Offensive Steam
  • A verification window will pop up and click Uninstall
Uninstalling Counter-Strike: Global Offensive

We hope you found our guide useful and were able to resolve the issue. However, if the issue remains of VAC being unable to verify the integrity of your game session, then please use the button below to discover more methods.
