I prefer the scout for the following reasons
1 : its fast reloading after each shot (not mentioning the 3 to 1 or q quick switch bug that valve never want to fix it)
2 : you can run fast after each shot and the enemy wont know where did you shot from
3 : headshots all the way even though it doesnt have powerful penetration.
4 : it somehow have less recoil???
1. Who needs to fire more than 10 shots in a professional game? No need to reload...
And after each shot it isn't faster, you can easily quick switch with an awp.
2. If you are playing against a decent player they'd instantly know where you are.
3. The headshot argument is moot. Not even professional players hit the enemy in the head every single time. It is easier to shoot a player in the chest to kill them, the awp outshines the scout by a mile in this case.
4. Less recoil? If you mean that you can noscope or run and shoot easier with it, sure that much is true, but why would you want to? The snipers role in a team is to be a strong steady player not the first player in.

You can't really say one is better than the other, it depends solely on the map in my opinion. A map with very little camping spots will favour the scout but a map with heaps will favour the awp. You can't really say one is better than the other, it's like comparing soccer and football. They are both good. XD
Name a single professionally played map that does not revolve around attacking/defending.
Defending: Needing to hold a bomb site, "camping".

Kills = Rounds = Cash
I know a large amount of players that are relatively shit with every weapon but the awp. How do they even manage to save up for it in the first place. Trust me, money is an important factor.

Awp will always and forever dominate the scout. and the awp is NOT a noob weapon, if you think so go to a serious awp_india server and watch all the "noobs" kill each other and try and get a kill.
Just because there are a lot of skilled awpers out there doesn't mean it isn't a cheap weapon and a noob tube on most servers.
Awps are the reason that I stopped playing regulr CS:S. Too many people on office rushing with awps.

Tbh, I think they need a mod to bring the shield to CSS. Thats what I think.
If it could shield from a awp bullet it would be so great add to the game.

Wait, I never knew bullets had speed in game.
It's because they don't. In real life, of course they would, but not in game. If you look at the code, to shoot a bullet, it creates an invisible line from where you are and where you shot, sees if it was a player, if it was it does some damage. It's instantaneous.

Scout is best, simply because of the way that you can use it (more agile than the AWP).
Uhmm, what? Its the same way you use it...
*Buys, runs, aims, shoots, kills*
Where is the difference? I don't see it...
Oh, and AWP requires just as much skill as Scout IMO!

You can even check out the console command "bulletspeed".
Although you cannot modify it.
I just looked through the entire shooting function and no where does it have anything about dynamic bullets or anything that has a bullet speed.
