During my first battle of my first play of Long War I threw a granade to a Sectoid. After exploding, it granted me automatically these three achievements:
Bada Boom (Kill 50 aliens with Explosive Weapons)
Welcoming Commitee (Kill 150 Aliens)
Pale Horse (Kill 500 aliens)


I have only played XCOM before with a cracked non-Steam version of the game.


For Long War I uninstalled the old XCOM and installed fresh a legitimate Steam version of the Game... It's odd that I got those achevements...


Any ideas?

Just a guess, but if you didn't remove the XCOM files from your "My Games" XCOM subfolders when you uninstalled, your previous play left a record indicating you had met those achievement objectives, but because it wasn't a legitimate copy, Steam never recognized them.  Now it does.  This info might have come from old save files, especially if they got "synched" to the cloud.


In general, Steam achievements are unrelated to mods of any sort.
