is short for Arctic Warfare Police. Though the term Arctic Warfare Magnum
is used more commonly.
AWP Whoring is only really possible if you are both an LPB
, and a very good shot. If you aren't that good of a shot, I would suggest playing through Quake 2
with nothing but a rail gun
, or playing Instagib
on Unreal Tournament
for a while. Normal FPS
skills like circle strafing
normally do not apply to AWP Whores since they are to be a sniping and should normally not be in the middle of combat. If someone does manage to get close to an AWP Whore, it is advisable for the whore to pull out a Desert Eagle
and then put their circle strafing skills to the test.
For a very few amount of people with extremely good aim, the AWP can be used as an assault gun
. I have seen a few people be able to run into a mass of enemies and kill someone with every shot they take. This is not advisable, and should only be done by people who know they can do it.
While the term
AWP Whore may not make much sense (Exactly how is the player a whore
?), it probably came about from people who like to say, "I abhor AWP Whores."
