Arctic Warfare Police sniper rifle; can be chambered in 7.62x51mm NATO (.308 Winchester) .338 Laupa (8.60x70mm), .300 Win Mag., or 7mm Rem. Mag.
British-made; uses the common (maybe too common) Mauser action; has an effective range of 800m for .308 variants and 1100+ meters for magnum varians. Despite what ignorant people think, the AW Police does NOT fire .338 Laupa; it actually fires a 7.62x51mm round (.308). It has a magazine capacity of 5+1 rounds. It is used by the Swedes, the German Bundeswehr, and of course, the Brits.
In popular culture, the AWP is known as the "ghey" or "n00b" weapon of Counter-Strike. I indeed agree, as it's overpowered. However, it requires more skill to use the Steyr Scout, as it is less powerful (it usually only kills with a headshot) -- but more experienced players use it for sniping, because it has a faster fire-rate and they can show off that they don't need an AWP to snipe. In my opinion, the Scout is the best sniper rifle in the game, followed by the AWP, then by the dreadedly lame G3-SG1.
1) I have an Arctic Warfare Super Magnum in my gunrack for hunting.
2) Why are you using the AWP if you're so skilled, nub?
