- This weapon's weight is lighter than the Steyr Scout in Zombie Escape, making it a good replacement.
- In normal matches and Zombie Modes, this weapon shares similar performances with the AWP.
- In Zombie Modes, pair this weapon with a high-magzine-sized pistol such as Dual Infinity or Calico M950 for higher survivalbility.
- In Zombie Scenario, the weapon's performance is better than the original AWP. Each shot deals 1000 ~ 2000 damage to bosses while the original one needs 2~3 shots to achieve that damage, considering that the firepower has already been maxed.
- A 10 rounds of AWP-Z can do 10000 ~ 12000 damage to bosses provided that the firepower has been maxed.
- Similar to Zombie Scenario, the firepower in Human Scenario to bosses is higher than AS50 but lower than Barrett M95 making this weapon good for beating Titans and Bosses.

- Although, the AWP-Z increases the player's movement speed in Zombie Escape, players with this weapon equipped would still not be able to compete with an actual zombie's movement speed for balancing reasons.
