The AWS is an integrally-suppressed bolt-action sniper rifle developed by Accuracy International, a British arms manufacturing company. It can be unlocked at rank 41 or with Credits (CR).
The AWS (Arctic Warfare Suppressed) is an integrally suppressed version of the AW rifle. Since it is designed to use subsonic ammunition, the overall noise when fired is similar to a .22 LR rifle. Although it is integrally suppressed, it is the same overall length as the AW rifle. This was done by shortening the barrel length from the AW's 26 inches to 16 inches. The user can also replace the AWS barrel with any AW barrel in a matter of minutes.
The AWS is equiped with integrate suppressor. Its integrated suppressor mask the firing sound while retains some relatively good damage and range for the rifle. Nevertheless, the suppressor still affect the muzzle velocity of this weapon, it's at 2000 studs/sec instead of 3000 studs/sec like the rest of the sniper rifles. The lack of a barrel attachment is not really important for this gun because it's a bolt action and long range rifle. Therefore, the recoil control is not necessary.
