why vac_friends list is empty when I print at last ?

function checkVacID(){
    friend_list = friends;
    vac_friends = []
    friend_list.forEach(function(key, index){ 

        .then(function (response) {
            vac_response = response.data;
            if(vac_response.players[0]['VACBanned'] == true){
          .catch(function (error) {

Because you're mixing up async and sync. forEach returns before your requests complete.

Also, rather than looping through the friend list, you should split it into chunks of 100 and make one request per chunk, to avoid getting rate limited by the API.

can you give an example of 100 steamids passing in api

like i have 256 friends

let friendsList = [array of steamids];

let chunks = [];
for (let i = 0; i < friendsList.length; i += 100) {
	chunks.push(friendsList.slice(i, i + 100));

let chunkResults = await Promise.all(chunks.map(ck => new Promise((resolve, reject) => {
	try {
		let result = await axios.get(`https://api.steampowered.com/ISteamUser/GetPlayerBans/v1/?key=&steamids=${ck.join(',')}`);
		if (result && result.data && result.data.players) {
			return resolve(result.data.players);
		reject(new Error('Malformed API response'));
	} catch (ex) {

let vacFriends = [];
chunkResults.forEach((chunkPlayers) => {
	chunkPlayers.filter(player => player.VACBanned).forEach((bannedPlayer) => {

Untested and might have bugs
