A collection of "noob weapons"

OK, I'm sick and tired of hearing people complain about certain weapons, primarily the top three snipers. (AWP, SG550, G3SG1) But in the past few months, I've heard complaints about a lot of other weapons. So anyway, here's a list I've compiled of weapons that people have complained about and servers have restricted, and why people see them as cheap/nooby.
SG550 and G3SG1 This is always the top complained about weapon. Simply for being able to have rapid fire and possibly single shot kills. AWP Overpowered, and can kill with one shot most of the time.
Now these you may be a bit unfamiliar with and you may even protest.
M249, P90, and MP5-navy The usual "spray and pray" weapons. XM1014, "the auto-shotty" Commonly known as the noob cannon able to fire 7 straight shots of buckshot. AK-47 and M4A1 I'm not sure what's wrong with them, it's just that on occasion I've heard someone over chat say, "Oh come on, you're using an M4? You noob!" Dual Elite Berettas People see it as being too fast for a pistol and thus is labeled cheap. Desert Eagle People see it as being too powerful for a handgun, and immediatley is labeled as being cheap.
So what does that leave us with? -glock -USP -P228 -FiveSeven -M3 -MAC-10 -TMP -UMP45 -FAMAS -Galil -Scout I find this absolutely ridiculous. Counter-Strike: Source is a game that is made by very good company and is run through many beta testers to make sure it's fun and that it works. My logic is as follows: Nothing is cheap as long as anyone can access it. Side-note: I do not see any weapon as being cheap, this is just a list of reports I've heard.

    The M-4 with the silencer on is the easiest gun to kill with, period.

    The AK is definitely not a noob weapon. The M4, however, is. It's way to easy to get kills with it. It's the ultimate pray-n'-spray gun.

    Well, any gun can be made cheap and "noobish" in the right hands.

    That's probably why people see them as nooby.

    The AK has it's downfalls, but the m4 you can spray, you can use it accurately, and it's always good. I find it annoying when thats ALL people use, I mean they never stray from the M-4 deagle combo.

    That's why people complain about them. I guess people complain about the players that think they're really good when they're using an m4 and ak47 becuase the guns are over-used.

    As for the dualies, those are the worst guns in the game. There's no way I'd ever complain about one of those. I'd probably laugh.

    Personally, DOOM does not like the M4. It's too accurate, even when running, and has a higher ROF than the P90; which is simply ludacris. However, I don;t hold it against anyone that uses one; I simply realize that they know no better than to use honorless weapons.

    And people that whine about any of the SMGs are simply idiots. They're the only balanced guns in the game, other than worthless handguns.

    To me, it's more of the players that piss me off, not the weapons. High majority of all the people that play css are raging idiots/assholes.

    I agree b/c people complain about this in Deathmatch servers as well.....and its annoying as fuck....."OMG Awp N00b lawlanjkadshjsakdhewkhfddhf" yes someone actually typed that in the chat....

    but the awp part is not totally true.... there have been sometimes when ive shot and gotten shot by an awp and was alive or my target was still alive...it brings the health down to the early double digits...... other than that all i say to them is basiclly a fuck you and continue using the gun i use....

    if the valve didnt want the guns in the game they would have nevered put them in the game in the first place!!!!!!!!!

    I've never heard the MP5 Navy been called cheap. It's personally one of my favorite guns, and I almost never see anyone (except newbies) spray and pray with it.

    You don't know much about the AWP, it does not one hit kill everywhere. Shoot somebody in the leg they live. I have to say the AK and M4 are only complained about because of there damage and rate of fire is outrageous compared to the P90 or the Famas and Galli. Most of these guns are said cheap because they are powerful and the rate of fire is fast. Most people don't put in the fact that most of these weapons have tremendous recoil and reload time. There isn't a single gun in Counter-Strike Source that is cheap. Every gun has there cons and a way to kill the person using the gun. If you complain about any weapon in the game it shows your a noob.

    Only weapons in CS:S that I think they could do without is the Awp, Autos, and last but not least the freaking Flash-Bang!!!

    EDIT:

    Ak takes a lot of skill to master. The same with any gun, but it's more evident in the Ak because of it's recoil. As for the duelies, try binding fire to your mouse scroll, then you'll see why it's cheap.

    If you can kill with the FREE knife from 12 feet away, that is considered hacking AND cheap, since it's free.

    Well, the only weapon in the game that could be considered "cheap" would be the auto-snipes. They have the potential for a one-hit kill and the have a very nice rate of fire.

    But even then,

    The weapons come with a mighty price tag 4750-5k (i think...)

    The reload time...gosh, you could read about the next Britney spears pregnancy and watch it happen in that time period.

    Accuracy, unless your target is 20 feet away, you'll be wasting a whole clip just to take out one guy. Which brings us to our next problem...

    You only get 30 shots and 3 reloads, thats like, 5 kills. which just goes back up to the money problem, getting killed because you ran out of ammo and needed to buy the gun again. (you'll probably be killed during the reload anyway.)

    So actually, are the autos really that cheap?

    A map is just a map...until it

    Often it's the people who suck and have a bad K/D ratio in-game who complain about weapons. I generally don't complain but when more than 68% of the people in the server are using the AWM, it's a problem.
