"that a gun for 4750 is the best gun in the game"
In 1.6 the gun was high risk, high reward, with only a handful of awpers being at the top of the game. Still, the GOATs of the game were riflers.
In CS:GO it's just a pubstomp overpowered weapon, even in tier 1 CS. That's why s1mple was crying when he went to Valorant and couldn't awp abuse. A slightly lower fire rate, 5 bullets, lower accuracy and he's already crying about the gun.
"most of the players on the list would have 1.2+ rating with riffle as well"
LOL, the only ones that would have more than 1.2 rating would maybe be ZywOo and s1mple, that's it. syrsoN was a tier 3 0.95 rating rifler and he's one of the top awpers, thinking players like Jame and sh1ro would have 1.2 rating while rifling is laughable.
"the list doesnt show are all these awpers like fallen, cerq, gratisfaction, kennys, niko now, chrisj, farlig"
Yes, and they wouldn't be pros without the awp, that's the point.
The awp doesn't make miracles, but it's overpowered so it boosts the player's performance by quite a lot. Good players become insane, insane become unstoppable, shit players that should be coaching or retired become these 1.01 rating awpers.
