SHOT WEAPON AWM


The Arctic Warfare Magnum (AWM) is a popular bolt-action sniper rifle that featured in Crossfire.

Overview

Considered to be the "classic" Sniper Rifle, the AWM behaves quite similar to its counterpart in CS/CSO: Powerful, 1-shot kill (Except leg/wall shoot), double zoom scope, and medium bolt cycling / reload time. This gun is the only sniper available in WCG, WEM, and CFS tournament, and becomes the weapon of choice for expert Sniper players. The AWM comes with 10 rounds magazine (20 in reverse), but in certain servers such as the North American server, it only holds 5 shots per magazine, making scoring streak quite difficult.

In all CF servers, AWM is available in the Item Shop, and often costs a lot of GP to obtain. New players will not be able to buy this gun with their starting stock unless they buff it up with GP+ Item, purchase GP or win GP via spinning crates.

Advantages

  • Very high damage
  • Very high accuracy
  • High Bulletproof Armor penetration
  • Purchasable via Game Points

Disadvantages

  • Low magazine capacity (5 or 10)
  • Long reload time
  • Weapon Delay
  • Slowed Movement

AWM-A

Similar to the M4A1-X, a special "advanced" variant of the AWM exists, despite not featuring a stock variant. AWM-A features a longer scope model and bipod in foiled down position.

Tips and Tricks

Although for it's disadvantages, it's a gun to be feared when put in the hands of an experienced player. The fact that it's a 1 shot kill to most parts of the body, this weapon makes it a weapon of choice for just about all snipers. Quick-scopes and no-scopes are best used with this weapon for the fact that if that bullet makes contact to the body or head, it is unlikely that you will have to use a follow up shot, unlike the M700 (Beginner Sniper rifle) where it takes 2-3 shots to take down an enemy unless they've been weakened.

"Dodging skills" is the ability to be constantly moving before you take the shot otherwise you will be an open target. Suggestions would include moving side to side right before you take the shot or hold the walking key to slow down your movement and increase your accuracy. You can either walk or crouch right before you fire. Crouching provides the best possible accuracy but makes you an open target. A skilled sniper can often move into position, crouch and kill another player and jump back into cover very quickly.
