Ok, due to the large ammount of discussion about this/ possibility there of heres everyone a thread to discuss the AWP in. Do not start a flame war flaming AWPers for being "AWP whores."

To begin, I do not believe that it is a noob weapon, though alot of noobs use it. It is the best option for sniping and is very powerful. If you think it is a noob weapon please justify your reasoning.

Uber 1337. People think its a noob weapon but you have be extremly quick with the scope. You also have you know the maps well because if you don't you can get owned from another angle.

i think it can go both ways. It does require reasonable quickness with the scope and all and knowing the maps isn't all that hard, but does take time, although being a one hit kill a majority of the time (not all the time, but usually) it does get annoying. Now if you have a guy doing what i call "combat sniping" where he's actually someone interacting with the rest of his team and not holding back, either in spawn or close to it, that i would classify as |337, but somebody who either camps spawn with it or camps somewhere close to spawn not really helping anybody on their team, is more of a n00b. That's my opinion anyways, hope it makes sense.

It takes some skill to use it, for example not standing somewhere where another player can shoot you in the back, and to kill someone with it one on one at close-ish range is pretty hard. As for sniping, its pretty easy to get many kills, but it shouldn't be called a n00b weapon, just because it is used by n00bs.......wait, actually, for that reason it should...

In short.

Autosnipers are the "n00biest" weapons in the game, far more accurate and powerful than CS 1.6.

AWP's take a fair amount of skill, plus the bolt action and relatively small clip means a delay between shots.

I agree with you. I do "Combat Sniping" But sometimes if I see my team go into one place and get slaughtered I hold back and pick off the opposing force.

yeah, i think that's fine, it's just people who camp spawn that really get annoying. Autosniper is the n00biest gun ever, hands down.

I think the Autosniper is the same thing though. You don't get a normal crosshair so you have to use the scope. As long as you don't camp with it...

I agree about the auto sniper, but if you hit Q or whatever your weapon quick switch is you can get around the AWPs slow Rate of fire.
