AWP: The Most Dominating Weapon in CS2

The AWP, or Arctic Warfare Police sniper rifle, is a dominating weapon in CS2. It is renowned for its ability to deliver instant kills with a single shot, with the exception of shots to the legs. This sniper rifle has excellent precision and long-range power, making it a common choice for players looking to eliminate enemies from a safe distance. However, the AWP comes with its own set of challenges, such as a significantly reduced movement speed when scoped in and lengthy reload times. Mastering the art of quick-scoping and smart positioning is crucial to unleash the full potential of this powerful sniper.
