I've always wondered, why do people call it the AWP? It's really called AWM. And what is your opinion on using this weapon?

    Valve calls it the AWP, it is AWM.

    Just like VALVe calls the AK-47 a CV-47, they call the AW/M a AWP.

    My perspective on this weapon:

    Personally, I love it. It adds a long distance challenge to the game. I'm my clans AWPer, so I have to love :)

    Just like fifa games they dont use real names... just names that look like them.

    Yes, Zippit is right. I'm not sure about M4A1, and Galil though. He's right on the AK and AWM.

    It may not snow there...but think about the Royal Marines.......don't you think they could use it if they go somewhere that snows or ANYWHERE else? I've seen pictures of some non-Brit CT squads like KSK (more SF than CT but lets get back to this) using the AWM in urban places.

    About the ejection ports and everything else on the left side of the gun, not the right:

    The original person behind Counter Strike was left handed, and liked everything on the left side, so when you flip it to the right handed person, its all FUBAR.

    I dont like the way that guns named in CSS.Even M3 Shotgun called something stupid and long......
    But i understnand why they named them like these. Like Zippits said:"And if you use real weapon names then they would have to pay the creator of the name..."
