It takes a fuckton of skill to master the weapon and to be consistent with it. People don’t realise this.

There are no difficult skills that are unique to AWPing. You need to have a fast reaction time, good decision making, gamesense, etc. but this is true of all weapons. Mechanically speaking, the AWP is objectively easy because you only have to hit a large zoomed in torso instead of a tiny head in the distance. Essentially, you are paying extra for easier aim duels. If you want proof of how easy the AWP is, just go on a casual server and count the number of AWPers. It's the most popular casual weapon for a reason. That said, is the AWP imbalanced? Not really. The price tag keeps it from being abused too much.

+1 if you managed yourself to 5-0 enemy team, you can guarantee yourself to get an awp and win the game with a 16-0 if your skill level is high enough

nah its fine compare to the old awp before 2015 this one is nothing lol
2018-06-23 06:11
That's why the gun costs 4750 $ If you can't counter it, then you are the one who needs buff

I love seeing this if it was that easy there would be tons of pro awpers thats why there is only around 10 great awpers in the pros currently and it might not even be 10
2018-06-23 07:53
There's not even 10 tier 1 awpers, lol.
2018-06-23 07:58
true but there is 10 great awpers in the top 25 but yea every time i see these threads its a joke everyone thinks its so easy cause they get raped by awps and dont use utility correctly

Take a second to remember there was a time, the AWP used to oneshot when you hit anywhere, even the leg.

okay, how should it be nerfed?

in gold nova 4/5 players use awp when they have money so understandable
2018-06-23 18:02
AWP is not that good vs good players they know how to dodge it. Only good to get first pick or support holding. And also it depends which map you wanna use OP at and also if a good player gets close to you, you lose 8/10 of the time.

A good awp will usually win the first pick straight up regardless of distance

AWP is OP I agree, the problem is how fast peek and crouching animations are in CSGO, it's so annoying, I have never seen people ADAD with AWP before except in CSGO crouch peek with AWP in CSGO is the most OP think ever

i realized this when i smurf inlow rank and destroyed everyone until they had enough money to buy awp . after that even silver noobs can kill me so easily. its too easy to use. people bitch about p90 and autos but even those take more skill than awp
2018-06-23 09:33
No, but they should change the movement when you press Ctrl while strafing which adds a weird "middle position" between standing and crouching, which makes it noticeably harder to aim at that shit. They must change it, so that when you press Ctrl while strafing, you STOP moving, crouch and then start to crouchmove. It will also nerf crouchwalkers a bit, and it's also a good thing.
2018-06-23 09:42
Obviously awp is easy to use. But you need to be really fast/smart to be good.
2018-06-23 09:43
The nerf is called a smoke/molotov/flash

Let me guess, you're on other side of the barrel. If i's so easy to use then go ham and go global.
2018-06-23 16:59

The first time I reached Global it was because of the AWP. Before that, I was stuck at LE-LEM. Now i'm more than good enough to play at Global level with rifles, but back then the AWP inflated my rank. It definitely makes the game a lot easier. If it didn't, nobody would bother buying it...
2018-06-23 17:03
So do you think it needs a nerf then?
2018-06-23 17:07

I would certainly look at ways to make sniping more skill based in CS:GO. A simple way to do that without changing the gun would be to bring back 1.6 wallbangs, so AWPers can't abuse pillars etc. so much and have to stay more mobile. A more extreme solution would be to scrap the AWP/Scout altogether and come up with some new sniper rifle that takes elements from both. One of the things that bothers me the most about the AWP is the need for noscopes to be random. Randomness is counter-intuitive in any skill based game. But if they remove that randomness and make noscopes 100% accurate, then people will just put a dot on the center of their monitor and have a huge advantage over everyone else. A solution to this would be to just enable crosshairs when unscoped but lower the damage so that headshots are required for a kill.

why would a bullet shot without scoping do less dmg than one when u are scoped. its the same bullet( same mass and shape) and the same energy used to fire it. physics works the same in both cases.
2018-06-24 17:18
Sri Lanka khorkalba 
I think you're misunderstanding me. I meant lowering damage in general - not just while unscoped. I would make it so that the AWP always requires headshots for an instant kill, to make it more skill based. But I would counter-balance this damage reduction by enabling the use of a crosshair while unscoped, increasing movement speed slightly, increasing unscoped accuracy to 100%, and reducing the cost to about $2.5k. Essentially, I would be creating a hybrid between the AWP/SSG08 that's a viable alternative to AKs/M4s.

awp was 10x better in 1.6 and wasn't op
2018-06-23 17:01
Sri Lanka khorkalba 
Noobs would find it a lot harder to AWP in 1.6. It's a lot harder to abuse cover/peeking because you can be wallbanged a lot more in 1.6. Also, enemies move faster so they're harder to hit consistently. People don't consider these two factors when they moan about the CS:GO AWP being less powerful.
2018-06-23 17:07
Wrong, flashes are 1/10 of the strenght they were in 1.6, you now have molotovs to protect the awper, the movement is faster so when an apwer repeeks he always can get a free shot.
2018-06-23 17:27

you are right about the flashes but molotovs also can get awpers to move and it isn't a free shot when you repeek especially with source interp

And what would you want them to change about the awp then? Seems to me you need to start using nades and/or tradefrag
2018-06-23 17:29
difficult for the person that is not as skilled at awping as finnish talent allu

Just because you get rent by awp in MM or get ez kills on plebs doesn't mean it's unbalanced, watch pro games it's perfectly balanced and they should revert the old nerf.
