Weapon unlock System
The player can choose to unlock the AWM instead of buying from shop by reaching level 30 and achieving 100 kills with the MK18 Mod1.
- In previous versions of Counter-Strike series, including Counter-Strike Online, AWM and AWP is a mashup of both variants, which causes confusion among players. In Counter-Strike Online 2, the 2 variants above are separate entities.
- The AWM is actually based on the AWP Black Bear variant. Since the latter is originally planned as a Taiwan-exclusive, the former is modeled afterward; the Korea version has its in-game files showing the "_tw" infix.
- The AWM Amethyst variant is misspelled as "AKM Amethyst" in the trailer.
