Counter Strike is easily one of the most competitive multiplayer FPS games of all time, with a popular eSports league and a rabid fan base. The AWP Sniper is the one gun that, if you invest the proper amount of training time and practice, can simply destroy the competition without fail. It’s no wonder that a gun with this enormous level of power has become the most memorable gun in the game.
The AWP is incredibly risky to use; it’s expensive to obtain, slows you down, and takes forever to reload. However, it can also kill an enemy with one body shot, eliminating them in the blink of an eye. Professional players have used the AWP to pull off some absolutely insane no-scopes and trick shots, making it a favorite for FPS compilations and other flashy videos.
