Apart from the skin, the AWP and AK-47 are two of the most popular weapons in CS: GO. They were also very popular in other versions of Counter-Strike, and any fan of the legendary series knows it very well.
Doug Lombardi of Valve said as the game’s Steam page quotes:
“Counter-Strike took the gaming industry by surprise when the unlikely MOD became the most played online PC action game in the world almost immediately after its release in August 1999,
“For the past 12 years, it has continued to be one of the most-played games in the world, headline competitive gaming tournaments and selling over 25 million units worldwide across the franchise. CS: GO promises to expand on CS’ award-winning gameplay and deliver it to gamers on the PC as well as the next gen consoles and the Mac.”
Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is playable for free on Windows PC, macOS, Xbox One, Linux, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Classic Mac OS.
