AWP is "simple"
Liberia rationale 
There's this thing about AWP which makes it the most difficult weapon in the game. You see, all other (unscoped) guns have the same angle of rotation, i.e. once you learn to rotate using your mouse with your hand or wrist and you're done, it's all the same. Not only the AWP's angle of rotation is different, it has two different values and lastly the angle changes are very different depending on the distance between you and the object. That's why the players who rarely or never AWP generally suck with it and miss a lot of shots. It's not as if AWP is easy for primary AWPers as well. AWP requires a lot more hours of practice than any other gun in the game. I don't even want to talk about the fact that the time between shots is enormous and once you've been baited, and start loading a new bullet you can be chased and killed.

I agree with your point of view. But it is perfect imo. It does not require a bff or a nerf. It is used in certain situations perfectly and it is not viable in other situations. It is completely fine. Do you think it needs a buff or are you stating the difficulty of wielding an awp?

No, AWP is easier weapon but it can be more difficult changing person by person. But Im convinced 100% that it requires less hours to master the AWP to a certain level than it is to do the same with a rifle. I think the real difference between awpers is only noticable at the tippity top level of play. I think that from tier 2/3 and lower awps are pretty interchangable if it weren't for personalities / and just general other aspects of the game. I.E. versatility of said awper.

AWP is easies to start using. But it is the toughest weapon to master.

Hey noobs There's a difference between a sniper playing for his teammates and the teammates playing for the sniper. I'm co-leading, organizing every defaults, our "bomb site taking", nades, etc .. I'm going first when it's tough eco/buy round, and I'm throwing the nades when we do specific tactics. In the pistol round I'm buying the smokes and flashes. Anyway life is tough sometimes but I'm getting paid very well. I don't care about having 30 frags, 1.50 rating, I don't care having fragmovie about me, I want to win. And you know what? I've been winning since 10 years with all of my teams. I'm not here because I'm shox' best friend. Shox got kicked a couple of times and I've always followed him coz' I like playing with him, we see the game the same way and we have the same work ethic. No disrespect, today we have the best team ever, IG / Outgame. Still a young team but proud of what we've done so far.

The angle of rotaion is still the same because your FOV is reduced. Effectively you might only rotate just half as much but the rotated distance is still the same compared to the distance from left to right on your screen. So if you have 2x zoom factor you just rotate half as much. A 90° turn becomes just 45° but you still rotate by half of your FOV meaning that your Mouscle memory should be unaffected. I think the problem for many people using the AWP is the just movement or the bad first bullet Accuracy.

0/8 it is by far the easiest gun to use. I'm a hybrid player so I play literally all roles and I perform way better k/d wise with AWP. All you need is decent aim and movement. No recoil, and since you don't need headshots it makes it really easy, unlike it's little brother the scout, which require a lot of skill.

Apart from simply holding an angle, awping requires a lot of gamesense into which fights one has to take, how and when to rotate around the map and when to reagress or fall back. Let alone retaking with it. When people actually understand how to counter awps, it's a lot harder to properly utilize an awp than people think. But most people whining are low level players that get picked off one by one by awpers. People also seem to forget about how expensive the gun is and that missing your shot might not only result in your death and the loss of the round, but also you being unable to rebuy the gun for a few rounds.

awp is easy to use in pugs, but is harder to use against decent teams that know what a flashbang and smoke is
