Praet0rianI 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.

O_O really ?! coo !! well i think for css its (i wouldnt call it a noob gun cause it needs its skill like any other gun) way to strong for now. The scope comes too fast, and it still got the "no recoil" bug wich lets you shoot unzoomed without havin any recoil! ( just paint a dot on your screen and you got insta gib ^^ ) For the ones that complaining about spawn killer at cs !? wtf ! :D If you mean when youre "terror" and the cts sniping at theyre spawn ? (the spawn is mostly at or near a bomb spot)...well they are supposed to actually ;) ! And if your talking bout "terrors" camping on theyre spawn !? THEN DONT RUSH!! the cts doesnt want anything from the terrors its theyre thing to bomb something! you just have to camp the spots ! thats how it was meant to play ! i dont know how often i say that to my team when im playing public -_- And then theyre complaining about that one terror that took em out at the spawn , cause they were rushing to the terror spawn?! -_-

Autosnipes are n00b weapons. I chose one and got top of the table, and I had relatively little experience. AWP's aren't n00b weapons, they have bolt action and if you miss youjr shot, you probably won't get another at that particular enemy.

So very true, If all people understood this then there wouldnt be the whole AWP argument. :lol: I think one reason people call the AWP n00b is the fact that it does alot of damage; but they also fail to realize that its very hard to hit the enemy in that one shot sometimes, making the high damage factor irrelavant if you cannot aim; n00bs usually cant aim too well- therefore the AWP is not a n00b gun. Sure a n00b can use the AWP, but can they do it well?

Yer I agree Praetorian, but also the autosniper is the same. Noobs can do well with it by just spraying, but it's pathetic to call somebody a noob autosniper whore because they choose the gun, get a couple of kills and stick with it. I use the auto sniper a lot more than the awp because with my 56k lag usually the awp doesn't do any damage though gore still splatters the walls. With the auto i either get 1 shot kills or have to fill the enemy's bwainz with lead before it actually kills them, but i never spray. When any gun is labelled a noob weapon, i think the reason behind it is when a whole enemy team starts using it and the game is ruined. A couple of days ago i was playing, one guy used the autosniper and let the terrorists win, the next round the whole team had the damn gun, and my team was helpless with no cash to even the weapon situation. ------------- Accident. I thought i just closed the window

I concur.

Let me tell you of a true snipers weapon , a true skilled scopers choice , yes my friends the scout. The ovely powerd ways of the awp means that it's nigh on impossible to be called leet whist using it , and the auto-snipers stupid rate of fire ....well lets just say n00byness is th only word to describe that monstrosity.There is no argument for the awp on why it can be 13373r than the scout , if you talk about times between shots there almost evenly matched , if you say the scope they're exactly the same , but when you mention the power there's where the difference comes in , true 1337ness is being able to get blindingly fast headshot , not jusy aiming at random body parts and using raw power ti take you the reat of the way.So is the awp 1337 you ask , well no it isn't , the only justified 1337 sniper is the scout :beer:

The scout's scope doesnt zoom as much and is slightly smaller, I believe.

The fact that it only takes one shot anywhere in the body makes it a noob weapon. That's why my server has banned all auto snipers. Takes much more skill to kill people there :)
