It's not easy to "AWP abuse". And Niko certainly won't be Top1 with AWP. If anything, AWPing would make him suck harder. He's a great rifler. In economics, there's something called allocative efficiency. Niko should rifle.
+1..It was a similiar case with s1mple when he gave up awp for guardian. He started playing bad and his stats and impact dropped hard. Same thing happened to NiKo when he started playing awp wich is wierd lol.
+1 It's muscle memory, I feel. When you have trained for 10,000 hours with one specific weapon, mastering its positioning, angles-clearing with that weapon, etc, you can't be that effective with every weapon.
still. if you looked at that ferrari peek by og earlier. kennyS is the typical awper who can hit flicks like that easily, and amanek will never hit those. only thing that kennyS need is time to regain his form tbh
true, hes able to hit the most impossible shots, but its so much more important to hit your easy shots and/or position yourself in a good way with the awp.
but hopefully kenny gains back his confidence and comes back
nope kennyS was just playing shit like he would constantly whiff easy shot, made the team worse and huNter was uncomfortable. amanek is a good awper plus he used to primary awp b4 coming to G2. niko awping was just shit and wasting his talent because his rifle is god tier and his awping is just okay.
I think if they had a proper awper they would need to give them space on both ct and T side which would hurt Niko and Hunter's performance. With amaNeK, they can have a good support awp that at least will consistantly get you something while still having Niko and Hunter carry.
they think that awper is not really matter thats why they tried this stuff. while in fact. it matters a lot. they shouldve just made nexa be more supportive, adjust his playstyle and stop baiting so he can be 2nd support after jackz tbh. niko is also a great entry fragger too.
